Isaac Simpson is a Salesforce Build an App scholarship winner for the month of April. Isaac answered some of our most burning questions for our Scholarship Winner Spotlight-
What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
The best advice I have ever received was “it never hurts to try.” Even if you might not succeed, you should at the least try. Because, if you don’t try, you will never be successful. Many people never accomplish anything because they are afraid of failing. You are guaranteed to fail if you never try. So, if you have a goal that you want to accomplish, try regardless of how low your chances of success are because you might succeed.
Speaking of trying, what’s one goal you want to accomplish in the next year?
One of my goals that I want to accomplish next year is to maintain my 4.0 GPA. I want to keep a high GPA for several reasons. The main reason being the fact that I have to work hard at bettering myself to ace all of my classes, and I will have to study enough so that I thoroughly know the subjects of my classes. Furthermore, it is always feels rewarding to succeed.
How will this scholarship help you accomplish your goals?
College is expensive and so it takes a lot of time and hard work just to pay for my classes. I am very grateful for this scholarship because it will help me to earn my Bachelor’s degree by allowing me to spend more of my time focusing on my education, rather than on how I will pay for it.
What’s one thing you can teach others?
If you want to be successful, start working!
What would you like to become an expert in?
I would love to become an expert in Software Engineering.
