have someone that commented on one of my videos   and they are wrote in spanish as if i didn't

is to help you to give you the latest and updated   uh most updated information on grants that are 
out there that give you at least a week or more to   apply for these particular grants and if you have 
your paperwork in order and if you have the time   to sit down and apply for these grants then 
this is a great informational tool for you   but if this is not something for you you could 
schedule and you can look at another youtuber   um which i don't even consider myself a youtuber 
because i don't have enough followers to consider   myself a youtuber i'm not making any money off 
of this i'm not trying to make any money all i'm   trying to do is help our community and to give 
information that is going to be beneficial for   you and if you're in business in your business 
that is all i'm not trying to be you know   all that or the guru and all that in other areas 
i'm the guru in okay but being on youtube and   giving information is something that i love 
to do because i love to help but i will not   take disrespect on my page you will be asking 
for something that you're not looking for and i   will not be feeling sorry for you so i'm trying 
to say this in the most congenial way is please   don't play on my page don't play on my youtube 
channel if you don't have anything nice to say   say nothing at all and just keep it moving okay 
all right and if you do answer me in any language   okay i will answer you back in any language 
so you can read in between the lines you   you know that doesn't mean just your language 
and dialect in regards to spanish french   you know uh mandarin whatever i'll answer you 
back okay so um just be careful on what you   put on my page okay so let's get our energy 
back and i have a lot of information for you   and when i say it's a lot babies it's a lot so 
before i get started maybe it's a good time for   you to go get a snack maybe go get some popcorn um 
some agua because i got some warm water right here some warm water in my cup when i'm cooled off 
and uh to keep my my throat from being dry   um i want to give a shout out to mr kwame y'all 
shout out to mr kwame listen he is my angel   he works in the background he you know well i 
love to give him clout and to give him praise   i appreciate you mr kwame sending hugs and kisses 
to you and yes we will be talking later on today   so i'm looking forward to our conversation and 
let's get started where the money is where the   money is yes yes okay so this is going to be 
and i'm going to start with um scholarships for   for students okay school scholarships and let 
me tell you um um when my son was in high school   he he was able to get a scholarship even 
though he opted out of going to that particular   college um he opted out okay scholarships are 
so important when you have children who want to   go to college where you want your children 
to go to college and you don't have to pay   the out-of-pocket expenses because it is way more 
expensive now to go to college than it was when i   went to college and when i went to college was way 
more expensive than when my dad went to college   and so it is um it is a great feat to 
do but one of the things that you do not   want to do is you don't want to start your kids 
going to college and they're going to be in debt   okay scholarships are the way to go i 
have a friend um a colleague who i when i   finally worked at my degree uh one time uh who 
actually went through college her uh four year   her to get her master's and her doctorate she 
she went to college and didn't pay one dime so   her entire collegiate journey was free she applied 
for the scholarships and she literally said there   is money out there just that a lot of people don't 
want to apply for it or look for it but there   isn't and there is plenty of money out there which 
is why i thank mr kwame because he is he's about   education a helping community just like i am and 
so let's get started okay so i hope you went and   got your water and your in your your snacks your 
popcorn whatever if you're not even on here live   but you're going to be looking at this 
later you're going to need it because   this is a lot of information all right okay so
