Getting into a car accident was always the last thing I would think about when getting into the car. After facing the fact that I was severely hurt, adjusting to my day to day life was tough. My needs were definitely something that I wasn’t used to. Having to rely on someone for my every move is very humiliating.
Having to deal with the legal actions and having school work due on a daily basis was extremely overwhelming, but not impossible. Having the support of my school administration was helpful. They allowed me to turn assignments past the due dates, letting me leave class early before transition with someone to help me carry my belonging, and made other accommodations that were needed.
Having the special accommodations were helpful, take an extra cushion in case I needed it. I never had to use any of them, I knew I had to accept what had happened and I just had to try my hardest to continue prospering in my education. I proved everyone wrong that thought I wasn’t going to be able to get back on track. Most importantly, I proved myself right when achieving everything I did after mI. Considering the fact of my fathers low paying job and that he is the only one working at home, college is an extra expense that gets put aside when is time to pay bills. The scholarship money would really increase the chances of me getting through my first couple of semesters in college
