1. Why do you think your Academy is the best one?
I am in the 11th grade and I am currently in the Arts and Humanities Academy. It is the best Academy at University City Promise Academy because we’re fun and we vary; meaning, we learn about the different branches of arts, music, and humanities.
2. If you were a piece of clothing, what would you be?
If I could be any brand of clothing I would be Nike because their design of clothing, bags, sneakers, etc. are very unique and sexy. It defines the girly side of me.
3. Personal Statement
Changing my community and school is the challenge I am facing in my life right now. My community and peers need to know that growing up in a low class environment doesn’t mean you have to live like that the rest of your life. You live in the ghetto but you don’t have to be of the ghetto. Strive for a better future for yourself and future family. To make a difference I want to advise my peers and tutor them in any subject. I want to make them realize that going to college and applying yourself would lead to success. College is important because education is the key to success. I want to attend UPenn. I am working hard to keep straight A’s, exposing myself to many experiences, and cooperating with colleges. A successful carer means being happy with your career, wanting to help my community and making a difference in the world, and being able to give more people the same opportunities.
