I have always been a timid and ambitious person, but for these past few years, I have wanted to break out of my shell and start to enjoy life. I am ready to attend college and be successful. Although, I know getting there will not be easy. I come from a single parent home, and no one in my family has ever attained more than a high school diploma.
The community I come from is good, I have always had a nice home and attended a good school. When I was young, because of my extreme shyness, I missed out on a lot of things, never joined any groups or made many friends. The one thing I could always count on was school. For my elementary and middle school years I attended a one of the best schools. It was very small, which probably contributed to why I was so shy. I loved going to school and learning new things, always feeling I was smart and could do whatever I desired. Until I entered high school, I didn't know how hard it would be to get accepted into college.
