Hope scholarship helps me stay busy and not get in trouble. When I say that I mean by coming here I cannot be out on the streets doing what I am not supposed to. I have a place to be when I get angry and/or whatever instead of being on the streets. Also keeping myself entertained on the side. This kind of might not explain what I learned but honestly I have learned a lot because its teaching me to be a young individual that is responsible for my actions instead of a young individual who doesn’t own up to them.
Lastly I am learning how to be smart with money and save. When i have money I usually always spend it and never have any left but now it’s to the point where i still have money because I save. By putting money in the bank I don’t always want to spend, spend, spend like some people say out of site out of mind. It’s better for me to put up money for up coming events so i don’t have to ask my mom. I am so very glad and happy to be in the hope scholarship because if I wasn’t I don’t think I would have managed any of this.
