Since I was a little girl, my Mother has always encouraged me to dream big and to know that
God has a plan for my life. She has encouraged me to try new things and to give
it my all. She promised to always be proud as long as I give it my best. She
taught me at an early age what God's words say. "Philippians 4:13, "I can do
all things through Christ which strengthens me." Let's just say I've been
dreaming big for a long time and college is a must!!!
I come from a family full of Ministers, musicians and singers. Music has been a part of my
life since birth! My mom says she used to listen to music and sing to me before
I was born. I love all types of music and singing, so studying music would be
my first choice. I would choose vocals.
Along with loving to sing, I love to be around children, babies mostly. I think I
would enjoy caring for and taking care of them. If the singing career didn't
work, I would choose to be a doctor. A pediatrician, working with the children,
I would like that.
I know whichever career I choose, I would need to further my education. My mom was so excited to hear
that I was chosen to be a part of the Kids2College program. This is the very
thing she has prayed and encouraged me for, to be a part of something great. To
open me up to the opportunity to go to college. She was the best for me and I
want to be able to succeed for her and myself.
College will inspire me to learn stuff that I don't already know. It will inspire me to do my best. It
will give me great joy to say, "Mom, you are looking at Dr. Spencer," know that
she will be so proud of me. I believe I can do just that!!!
