I want to become a City Year corps member because I feel I have a lot of potential to do great things in
my life. Although my past wasn't so great I still have a future that can be successful. I wasn't the best
in school, but I still graduated. That was a big accomplishment for myself. I've been through a lot these
past 18 years of my life. I've experinced whats its like to not have a family or feel like you aren't
wanted or don't belong. I grew up in the foster care system and I've been in there care since the age
of three. Although those years I spent in shelters or placements wasn't that great, I've learned a great
deal about kids and even people in general. I would like to become a City Year corps member because I
believe I can make a difference. Sharing my story and helping kids overcome their struggles, is
something I would love to do. Going out in the community and doing whatever I can to make Detroit a
better place would be an honor. Cause if my service only helps 5 out of 20 people, then I'm satisfied
because thats five kids would will do the same thing I did when they want to reach out. I'm not affraid
to reach out because when I needed it the most somebody reached out for me, so I just want to return
the favor no matter how many people it affects. This is why I want to become a City Year corps
member.
