These past few months or year overall has put me in challenges I was not prepared to face. Unfortunately as soon as COVID hit, I was let go from a job and was ultimately unemployed for over six months. All while this was happening I was still going to school online which was another challenge for me considering I have never taken an online course before. I had plenty of distractions at home, even being alone my head was all over the place. I really didn’t know how I was going to pay off my 2020-2021 school year. That was until I was awarded the COSI scholarship. This really helped me in getting through my studies. And really shed a light at the end of the tunnel. I just like everyone else had to face some pretty rough challenges this year. These challenges if anything proved to me that I can face and get through anything and it taught me a lot about myself. I learned I am a great online student and can really accomplish anything I set my mind to as long as I work hard.
