In my younger years I began to accumulate my knowledge of computers, not just running programs and using them, but the internal workings of both hardware and software. Working on computers had become a hobby and I found joy in the challenges of troubleshooting the components and software that the computers contained. Later on I began to troubleshoot PCs that belonged to other people. And though I had already known so much regarding these machines, it was an ongoing learning experience because technology is always growing. I met every challenge head on and even though I had failed to conquer some of the challenges, it never stopped me from doing what I enjoy. People do not learn if mistakes are not made along the way because it is a learning experience in itself. Through trial and error I had taught myself what I already knew about computers, but I needed more knowledge from a source I had not yet touched and so I took on the next challenge that awaited me, that being to enroll in a program in the field of Information Technology. I came to Keiser University with two goals. One goal is to learn as much as I possibly can to expand my knowledge base and the second is to attain the tools needed to make a career out of working on computers, those tools being a degree and certifications required by employers to do the job. I knew it was not going to be an easy challenge going back to school after so many years, but not all challenges were created to easily conquer them. Dedication and hard work have to be driven in order to accomplish my goals and that is what I am doing now and will continue to do all the way to the time I
I am the kind of person that becomes relentless when my sights are set on a target. When I determine my priority, I make every adjustment necessary to align my actions and thoughts towards that goal. This is something I have learned about myself during my transition into college. No matter what the endeavor, I am tenacious and resourceful enough to achieve success. This trait, as I have discovered, is perfect for scoring the highest possible grades in my university coursework. Some of my friends…

Project #2 Scholarship
Dear scholarship committee,
Throughout my short, 18 year old life, many people have asked me the question: "What do you want to be when you grow up?" From when I was a child, I have always responded with: "Baseball player." During all four of my years at high school, I attended many showcases and travel leagues to show off my playing abilities. College coaches and prospects would show up to watch my team play…
Since the day of my birth, my family has always wanted me to be a doctor. I was in a Christian school until 5th grade. That was when I started middle school. Du to a financial crisis in the family, I wasn’t able to go to a Catholic middle school. However, in 7th grade, my parents somehow arranged for me to go to a Catholic middle school. I was very grateful because spending one year in a public middle school was just horrible.
I would like to be a doctor. I have decided to go to a medical collage…
My desire to become a teacher evolved around my second grade teacher, who made each child in the class feel special. At this time I was a struggling reader with attention Deficit Disorder without special education services. There is not enough space to elaborate on mentor influence on my decision to become a teacher of young children. Today, twenty one years later valued mentor as I develop skills as a caring and competent early childhood educator.
My journey on becoming the ultimate early childhood…

Hi, I am Michael Antretter and to the best of my knowledge, I will not be receiving financial aid grant funding for Summer Sea Term, 2013, from any other source other than the Alumni Association.
"One hand for oneself and one for the ship" literally means that when you are on a ship, always use one hand to steady yourself, and one to work, but to me it means so much more. It can be fitted to so much more than just ships but to land based jobs, personal relationships, and even classes. I have had…
Good morning Scholarship committee,
Thank you for taking the time to consider my application for scholarship. I would like to take this opportunity to tell you a little about myself.
My name is Amanni Sitz, I am a senior at Fallsburg High School and am planning to go one to film production with a side of technology. My thinking here is that if the ultimate dream of being in film production does not come to be at least I will have the technology to fall back on.
I was born in Brooklyn and lived…

THE ANSWER IS BLOWING IN THE WIND
We live in a nation where money is the catalyst for all our ideas, but with the recent economic downturn money has become an increasingly limited resource in the United States. When NASA put man on the moon the nation threw millions of dollars at the program until we found what worked, and now the space program is in jeopardy. We can’t just throw money at our energy problem. Developing…
To the members of the Scholarship Committee,
I feel the need to request any available scholarships to assist me in furthering my education. I
live with only my mother who has helped to put my three older sisters through college. She did the
best she could to help out financially, however, they still needed to take out significant loans. I know
my mother feels obligated to help me with my college expenses even though she is running our home
on her own. Any scholarships that I would receive would not only be of a great assistance to me…
