My Dallas All Sports Association scholarships have allowed me to pursue my goals. If it were not for their continuous support, I would have to work longer periods of time that what I already am, which would take away from my studies. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have been presented with their scholarship for two consecutive years. As a result, I have been able to grow not only as a person, but I have beaten the statistics by becoming a college student. The scholarships I have received I do not take for granted, nor are they in vain. They play a bigger role in my life, showing me the importance of giving as well as education, than one could probably think. When I do become a successful, prominent figure in the future, I will be able to look back and proudly say that the opportunities presented to be by DASA have helped me get where I am now, and for that I will forever be grateful. I wish to be able to play a role in pouring into the Dallas/Fort Worth community and their future student just as the DASA organization has continued to pour into me. With much gratitude, I am honored to thank the people at DASA.
