Personal Statement I come from a large family with relatives from a little ranch in Chihuahua, Mexico. Many of which have never made it past grade school.

I learned how to adapt to the individual needs of students to provide them the best education.

Through these experiences, I watched my students gain the confidence to participate in activities and excel in academics to become successful individuals. As a future Speech Language Pathologist, many qualities that I possess can be improved by furthering my education.

ve you ever contently thought about why people become successful? It may be surprising that intelligence isn’t the key component to achieving something; neither popularity nor social skills. It’s grit, the ability to preserve over obstacles to reach a long-term goal. According to Angela Duckworth from the TEDTalk, “The key to success? Grit,” this characteristic is the most important when working toward a longstanding goal.
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they're right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together” (A quote by Marilyn Monroe).
Psychologist at the University of Pennsylvania, Angela Duckworth expresses, “Passion and perseverance for very long-term goals. Grit is sticking with your future, day in, day out,… and working really hard to make that future a reality. Grit is living life like it’s a marathon, not a sprint.” Duckworth works towards making grit become part of the school system to help children. Duckworth makes a point of explaining through a TED talk show, that children should be taught this desirable trait through “growth mindset”.
