I need to write a convincing essay stating why I deserve the scholarship again. Heres some background on what happened. my family got COVID towards the end of the semester. I was the only one who didnt catch anything so I was the one taking care of things around the house. and I managed to get an A on all classes but one, my only afternoon class, which was when I was getting these things done for my family. I ended up losing time to study because I was taking care of them and their needs (cooking, cleaning, getting their medications and just making sure they had everything they needed) of course while isolating myself from them and keeping my distance. my brief answers to essay questions: I need to improve my gpa and I will work non stop next semester to hopefully reach the gpa requirement. now that COVID has hit once, the chances of it happening again is possible but unlikely and I will be vaccinated soon so I do not have to worry about that. I plan on using and taking more advance of the tutors and study sessions offered at the College. They can help me accomplish my goals by keeping in touch with me maybe a bit more than they did last semester to make sure Im in check. questions I need to answer in essay: Help us understand the challenges you faced that contributed to your not earning a 3.5 GPA this semester or successfully completing 12 credits? What steps do you plan to take to improve your GPA or complete 12 credits to meet the scholarship requirements? What resources do you plan to use to help you achieve this goal? How can we help you accomplish your goals?
