“It is important for me to go to college because it will be the time when I am able to pursue academics to my full potential. I want to learn as much as possible so I can bring that knowledge to other as it was once brought to me. I want to inspire young girls so they can see the same beauty I see in mathematics and sciences. My dream is to learn and impact the world, but to achieve this goal, it is fundamental that I go to college.”
