This morning I took one of the most important steps towards fulfilling my college app. I began taking a look back at what I have done this year. During the middle of the school year I was thinking about the reality of colleges, coming from a low-income community. Staying up many nights, working till I cant stay awake, would be for noting if I cannot pay to further my education. I knew this is a reality because I have had family members and friends who ran into this problem. I knew I had to make a change in community to help my peers and myself avoid this. Today I started writing my college essay on the impact I have made in my community. This was the beginning of many hours I will spend writing it.
