Personal Statement

When I came to college, I noticed that many students in Miami grew up in neighborhoods like mine. I believed that my university, which was right around the corner, had resources that could help change their perspectives about life. I planned Canes ConqHER, which brought 3rd-5th grade girls to campus to participate in self-esteem, empowerment, and professional development workshops. The girls worked with representatives from UNICEF and played soccer with our women's soccer team. Hearing about their new goals, affirmations, and seeing the smiles across their faces, warmed my heart. Seeing the effect that one day could have, I wanted to reach more students. I created an event for kindergarten and first grade students that involved a reading picnic, literacy games, and a scavenger hunt for Black History Month. This event has now blossomed into my own student organization where my peers and I teach literacy activities every week to kindergarten and first graders. Community service is more than what I do, it is who I am. I hope to further my work in the community and pursue my goals of ensuring that everyone has access to a quality education, health, and life.
