The first three-word phrase I ever uttered in this life was "Do by self!" I've grown up wanting to be independent and strong. This has shaped who I am. However, in these seventeen years of my life I've learned that it is okay to need help.
People have helped me cope with my depression and to overcome my anxiety. I hugely appreciate advice about organization and time management. I know my beloved theater productions would crash and burn if it weren't for people helping each other memorize lines and live through technical problems and costume malfunctions.
People need other people
So. Now it comes down to you. I'm asking you to help me achieve my dream of going to college. To help me learn what I can, and to help me grow into a well-rounded, educated person who can reach out to the world and help others too.
