Hello! I am new to College confidential, but I wanted a shared space in which we could hopefully help each other to receive this amazing scholarship. I wanted to share my stats and hopefully you guys could share yours as well.

GPA: 3.85 (straight A's except for one class, which was during a traumatic event in my life and received a C, taking the class again to hopefully get GPA back to 4.00)

Work experience: Full Time at a Collision Center (Have been working since I was 18 yrs old to support myself, I come from anti LGBTQ+ family)
Part-Time: McGraw-hill student ambassador
Volunteer: Score-Miami (association of the SBA of Miami, helps young entrepreneurs with free business consulting and mentoring)

My Story: I was sent to Miami from Dominican Republic, my parents don't reside here and communication is minimal if anything. My parents found out I was Bisexual and since then there has been a bunch of issues between my family. I hope that one C does not ruin my year and a half of hard work. I am re-taking the course to hopefully get my stats back to a 4.00.

Rec letters: 1 personal, 1 professional, 2 academic.
Academic: Accounting Professor and Personal effectiveness
Personal: Co-Worker
Professional: Supervisor from Score Miami

Bachelors in Accounting

Schools: University of Miami, University of Florida, and Florida international University.
(if you guys have any recommendations for Accounting schools to check out let me know please!)
