University of Kentucky Scholarship
Universityof Kentucky Scholarship
I believe that University education offers not only an opportunityfor exciting and new experiences, but also it gives us a chance toexplore and contribute to diversity. In addition, we learn theculture, history as well as the ideas of a foreign country. I believethat a scholarship in the University of Kentucky will help mecontribute to the UK’s diversity through my heritage, lifeexperiences, as well as through my skills and abilities.
Ever since I was small, I have met people from differentmulticultural backgrounds, religion, sexual orientation, andethnicities. My parents have also been teaching my siblings and meabout the importance of our heritage. The first priority to myparents has always been to give us the best opportunities in life andgood quality education. My family members did not emphasize onmatters of personal identity. Nonetheless, they could not prevent usfrom facing social realities. Later, I realized that being from adifferent racial community had its experiences and sometimes somechallenges. Despite all the challenges, I have managed to beappreciative of whom I am and I am dedicated to meeting and teachingother people about my culture, language, and also to learning theirown too. I have developed to be a strong willed person, who would useall means to understand and empathize with different people’scircumstances. Today, I can view things at a different angle and anychallenge to me is a great opportunity to learn and enrich mysurroundings.
My diversity does not revolve on my upbringing and heritage only. Mylove for academic excellence helped me to pursue more knowledge indiverse environments at an early age. Often, I visit the publiclibrary because my family cannot afford to buy me books.Occasionally, my love for books makes me visit the library twice in aweek, borrowing seven books at the minimum. My academic experienceputs me at some odds with classmates from interracial backgrounds. Mymastery of English language and effective communication skills couldbe an added advantage that could offer some leadership skills toacademic clubs in the UK. Moreover, I have been a saxophonist forapproximately seven years, and have even made a presentation beforemy fellow students at the college. This skill is a benefit to theUK’s talent clubs because I am more than ready to teach them.
In life and at school, I was surrounded by people of differentcultures, socio-economic status, as well as different religiousbackgrounds. As a result, I have learned to be open, accommodative,and understanding to other people’s viewpoints, lifestyles,religions, sexual orientation, and cultures through the relationshipswe have with my classmates at college. In turn, I believe that myheritage, personal experiences, as well as skills and abilities, willadd unique and interesting advantages to the University of Kentuckyintellectual environment. In addition, if I get this chance, I woulduse all my capabilities to augment the background of the UK’speople by teaching them the importance of fair treatment and equalityfor all humans.
