About michelle1995

I am a non-traditional student, who returned to college eight years after high school graduation. I completed an Associate in Arts degree from Midlands Tech this past semester (fall '07).

I was supposed to begin USC this semester(January '08). However, I was not able to. Turned out my loans did not cover the full amount of tuition. I could not afford the difference plus book costs. I have deferred until the fall, and hope I can begin then. Obviously, this makes winning scholarships more crucial than ever. I am going to put forward all the effort I possibly can here and devote myself to writing as many scholarship essays as possible. Even $1,000 would have made a huge difference. That small amount would have allowed me to go to school this semester.

When I return to USC, I plan to pursue a Political Science degree, and would like to enter law school or grad school afterwards.

I have been married for almost three years, and enjoy reading and traveling. I also keep busy by helping my mother with my five-year old niece, and have four four-legged babies of my own (two dogs, two cats), in addition to a parakeet and fish.
