If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I would tell myself endless things. I took my high school experience as a cake walk. I did recognize what a head start I could get in life if I had my head screwed on straight. Now that I can see clearly i realize what a mistake I made. I am now more ready than I have ever been to prove myself and to make up for all the lost time. I would tell myself to never give up no matter how hard times may be. I have learned pure determination is one of the best attributes one can teach themself. Another thing I would tell myself is to save as much money as possible because along with growing up, come more expenses. I wish I would have done things differently in high school but now is the time to prove that I am great. This scholarship would not only allow me to better myself but to prove myself in the law field.
