I was accepted into my number one school, the University of Kentucky; however, I chose Clark Atlanta University to release the burden of tuition on my parents. At first, I was afraid to leave hometown and my parents because there’s an unbreakable bond between me and them. I built the confidence to strive for my dream goals and never be afraid to achieve or grow apart from my environment. I feel that I will have challenges that can be overcome through my determination and ambition. I am ready to adapt to change in a new environment and experience life in college.
