SEEDS Spotlight: Josue Ramos

Why did you apply for the Scholars Program?
I applied to SEEDS because I believed I could achieve much more in a private school than in a public one. I wanted to be around kids who were at my level of knowledge. I wanted to challenge myself, and that’s what SEEDS does. It challenges scholars.

What are your goals for the future?
My goal for the future is to get into a private school. I want to have an advantage in my education. 

What have you learned with SEEDS?
I have learned that you’re not always the smart one. SEEDS brings in intelligent scholars from all around New Jersey. This has been a humbling experience for me. 

What would you tell your friend about SEEDS?
I’ve had some ups and downs, but I managed to persevere. I gained confidence when remembering the reason I was here. NJ SEEDS prepares me for my future in education and I’m grateful. With the help of SEEDS, I know I will make it far.

What does SEEDS mean to you?
SEEDS gives me an advantage in becoming successful, not only in my education, but in my life.
