Homework Help: scholarship essay

Posted by Angelina on Sunday, July 17, 2011 at 10:49pm.

This is for a scholarship the topic is "Why do you deserve to win this scholarship?" I am hoping that someone can proofread this and also give any tips for improvement. In addition, the essay has to be under 250 words.

I believe that I deserve this scholarship because I am a hard working person. Throughout my life, I have faced multiple obstacles that I have not let hold me back. I am the first person in my family to not only go to college but also graduate high school. This was not an easy task for me as it would be for other high school students. When I was four years old, my mother died of breast cancer just eight short years later my father passed from a heart attack. At this time, I was put into foster care. Due to this unfortunate event, as soon as I was able to get a job I had to do so. For those that do not know when you are in foster care as soon as you turn 18 or graduate you are on your own. I had to work and save all the money I could so that I had something to live off when I graduated. I did not have a high GPA while in high school; however, I worked as hard as I could to keep my grades up and make sure I have plenty of money to live off. I am now in college and I still work my butt off to get the best grades I can.
