Describe the most significant challenge you’ve faced and the steps you have taken to overcome this challenge. How has this affected your academic achievement?
Talking points I came up with include:
discrimination w/in the education system
Discouragement from others w/n the community
Loss of family & friends
Living in an underserved & underrepresented community
All affected my poor choices in high school, why I didnt attend college out of high school,
How it has shaped my current frame of thinking to be motivated.
