Praise's Story

My passion is psychology, which stemmed from my mother. My mom is a very down to earth person, and growing up, I've always seen her helping others, which has inspired me to want to do the same. She owned her own daycare and sometimes I would go and help her with the children and she had some that would come who were super shy or didn't talk. I liked being there to help her get them out of that shy shell and get them to communicate more. I feel confident about my words and talking to people, so being able to put something I love and good at doing into a career excites me. My passion for psychology helped me open up more and improved my communication with everyone around me greatly.

Attending a Centenary Summer Scholars will help me explore and discover more about my passion from a different perspective. I will be experiencing psychology on an academic level which will get me ready for a career in psychology. This summer program will mentally prepare me for my future and get me ahead. My passion will improve from what I know now to what I will learn there.

A Note from Mr. Durbak, Praise's Teacher

Praise is clearly an intelligent and intellectually curious student who cares about her education. I believe that she would greatly benefit from participating in Centenary Summer Scholars by allowing her to further develop and improve certain skills, like organization and time management. Further, Praise would benefit from spending time with people who have similar goals that she has and being in an environment where she is supported and expected to succeed. I definitely see Praise as a peer leader who has the potential to succeed in college, and I hope that a program such as Centenary Summer Scholars will give her the skills for college admissions officers to see her this way as well. I feel that her consistent grades, combined with her dedication and her leadership qualities make her a strong candidate for any program lucky enough to have her.
