My name is Samoria and I’m in the 7th grade at Bright Futures Academy. I like the golf program we have here. I like the after-school programs, the technology room. I like computers. I like coding.
Before this school, I went to a public school. My family chose for me to come Bright Futures because my cousin went here. She was telling us about it. At first, I was going to go to public school but my cousin told us about Bright Futures. I have other cousins that went here as well.
My family wanted me to do things in the community and my old school wasn’t really doing that. We couldn’t go anywhere or express ourselves more. Being at Bright Futures has made me come out of my shell a little bit. I feel comfortable here.
I love my teachers. My favorite subject is now math, but it wasn’t before. I also like my English class, computers, my Bible class and my Georgia history class.
I think introducing me to God is special. The more I get Him, the more that I engage in the things I’m learning. It’s getting me more involved. I feel like I am in a good place with my spirituality.
After high school, I want to study philosophy. I was thinking Georgia State or Michigan State. I want to go to grad school and get my education degree and become a professor. I like asking questions. I like knowing things. I like being informed on what I’m doing. I like research, like when we get projects, so I know what I’m saying and how I’m going to say it.
Policies and scholarship programs are important because I know that for the people who pay tuition instead of receiving grants or scholarships, and I know we wouldn’t be able to afford it. I was thankful for being accepted to Bright Futures. Without the scholarship, going here wouldn’t be possible for me.
A certain zip code shouldn’t determine where a student goes. You should have the best education possible.
