Shelby: A story of never giving up
My whole life my family has struggled financially. From not knowing if the water will be shut off, being evicted from certain places, and now the rental we are in, is now owned by the bank - we can't seem to ever get any good luck with a stable place to stay.
We struggled all through high school with money so I picked up two jobs to help my parents when they needed it and to support myself. As a result, over the past few years I was not able to save up anything due to never knowing what would happen, so that is why I believe this award would be good for me.
I'm the first in my family to go to college or university and I plan on trying to change the financial view on our family, to become something and to live more securely.
