My teachers and my advisors since seventh grade helped me believe in myself instead of doubting myself. It happens to many of us where doubt becomes a weakness, and we stop believing in ourselves because our dreams are too big. KIPP always reminded us that everything was possible as long as we were determined and put effort in our goals we would be able to achieve them. As alumna of KIPP, I plan to stay humble and to give back to those who I owe everything for making me who I am.
