I'm applying for a scholarship given out by the Horation Alger Association. The scholarships are for kids with low income, and on the application they ask you to write a short piece (100-300 words) "describing your adversity (low income) in detail and tell how it has motivated you to go to college a pursue a degree." I've finished my piece, but I'm not sure it's what they are looking for. I need someone to read it over and tell me if it feels right to them, and look for any errors I might have missed. Just post if you want to and I'll pm it to you. You can either pm me back or post your opinions and thoughts here, whichever you want to do.
