Septembre Lewis with Darwin Harris & Martell Cotton
College Students | Upward Bound Math & Science | Cahokia, IL & O'fallon, IL
I didn't want to be someone who graduates and stays the same. I wanted to be big, somebody that somebody talks about. I decided myself that I am NOT going to let people influence me negatively and bring me down. Darwin Harris
Sometimes, the words that come out of your mouth, limit the places that you can go. You should never let your mental capacity limit the places that God wants to take you. He can take you far, above and beyond that which you ask. Martell Cotton
How hard are you willing to work for those things you desire? Are you taking heed to advice given from those pivotal people in your life?
This week, I have the pleasure of chatting with Martell Cotton and Darwin Harris. Both are high school seniors preparing for the college journey. I asked these two to join us because they both received a huge amount of scholarship assistance, rewarding their hard work and dedication. I wanted to highlight these two, for students who feel its impossible to get such tremendous assistance after "doing the leg work" and receiving financial scholarships rewards.
Darwin is a senior high school student at Cahokia High School in Cahokia, IL. He finds pleasure in hanging with friends, being a working citizen and diligent volunteer member of his community. He is preparing to become a broadcaster, taking pride in all the college choices and the major scholarship opportunity he has been blessed with (over $50,000!) He talks about how he went from being vulnerable and sensitive to the words, thoughts and influence of others to taking a stand to be the difference we seek in the anti-bullying community.
Martell is a senior high school student at Collinsville High School. She's a hardworking, and mature young lady. She can be found wearing her joy and faith in God., being more than thankful for his relentless blessings. She was also very fortunate enough to receive a major scholarship opportunity of $68,000! She talks about how her walk with God has allowed her to be confident in her journey despite unexpected and uncomfortable turns.
Tune in. I am sure that we can all learn something from these two, whether it refers to our lessons learned or our experiences to come. It gets real about 10-15 minutes in, so just wait on it.
