A Hopeful Dreamer


I come from a very humble family
Loving and caring but affected by divorce.
Nonetheless I grew up very happily
Because compared to others my life could've been worse.
My mother had dreams for my siblings and me.
She envisioned us in college and getting a degree.
However, life doesn't always go as planned,
Instead we all got married, and our education reached a halt.
I am a wife and mother and now a few years later,
I enrolled at BYU and am now pursuing a major.
I never thought I'd get this far considering my situation,
But I'm grateful for the chance to further my education.
I'm a dreamer and believer and can make a change,
My biggest motivation is my little daughter Jalayne.
Please give me a chance so I can continue in school 
By helping me pay the high tuition and the cost of books.
