Personal Narrative: My Simon Scholarship

There 's only one thing I dream of and it’s to be successful in life. Whether it’s with soccer or my education/career goals, my main goal is to be successful and to be someone in this world.

I won’t let any obstacle get in the way of my future and I will keep striving for the more than the best. I want to thank the Simon Family Foundation for this amazing opportunity and I’m hoping I will be considered as a Simon
