My Greatest Strength

My Greatest Strength

I believe that my greatest strength is my refusal to give up. Although I have a tendency to not step outside of my comfort zone, I keep up with something once I do try it. When I feel that something is very important, I know that I must do everything to accomplish it. I was accepted to my dream school, Boston College, two years ago. But I had very little financial aid, and there was no way that I could pay for it. I had to receive that financial aid somehow. I spent months working with graduate support at my old middle school to plead my case. After several meetings with the financial aid office, I received a very generous aid package that allows me to attend BC. My refusal to quit comes from those around me, especailly my mother, who sacrifices everyday to ensure that her family is cared for. She is a model example of what comes as a result of hard work and determination.
