What are you most excited about starting or experiencing at UW-Platteville?

I can't wait to start working towards a brighter future for myself. All my life, I've missed out on things because my family couldn't afford it, but I wasn't going to let college be one of those things. I know I need to further my education in order to have any sort of success in my life, and I am truly excited to be taking that next step. I'm also excited to actually have some sort of structure. I've never really had a steady place to live, or even steady meals in my life. Being in a dorm and having a meal plan will provide both of those things for me. I know most kids probably have those things and are looking forward to having more independence from their current lives, but I've been taking care of myself for a long time and am ready to get serious about my future.

What interests and/or hobbies do you have?

I have a wide range of interests mostly because I love trying new things, and I like most things I try. I think there is a way to make anything fun and worthwhile. A few of my favorite things to do are dancing, cooking, and reading. Dance and cheerleading have been my real passion ever since I was little, but since my school is so small, we've struggled to keep any sort of squad or team alive. Food all together is a huge part of my life. I love trying new things and creating my own recipes. Reading, of course, has always been my escape. I haven't always had the money to go places or do things growing up, but I could always open a book and let my mind travel to amazing places and experience exciting stories.

Raven's Thank You Note

Thank you so much for the opportunity to better myself and continue my education. I know without it, I would not make it far in life. My dream is to become a guidance counselor so I can one day help other kids like me find a way to follow their dreams. I really, truly appreciate any help I receive, because I understand the true value of education and opportunities that not everyone can get.
