My parents have supported me financially by sending me through a Catholic education. Next year I will attend school at the University of Northern Iowa to study business accounting and finance. As a college student, I will be expected to pay a majority of the financial cost through loans. Most importantly, I have planned for the future by setting high expectations for myself in school and at my job. Failure for me would be obtaining anything lower than an “A” in a class.
I plan to become a lawyer and the length of time it take to do so is 7 years of college. If I had to pay full cost of college for 7 years it would be very hard and very stressful. Community college is giving me the opportunity to attend my first 2 years of college for free because of the new scholarships. And if I didn’t have a scholarship the price difference between a community college and a university is a big difference. Like Terry O’Banion I did not come from a wealthy family so community college is a great opportunity.
While we have enough money for me to attend college next year, I need to do my part and help contribute to my educational goals. And with my brother going into college in two years, my parents want to give him the opportunity to go to the college of his choice even if it includes going out of state as well. Coming to Colorado State University was the best decision I ever made for myself, and I really want to finish my degree here. I believe
I’m currently taking a welding class in High School and I have already achieved a couple of certs. This year i’m entering the TSA competition hoping to win district and maybe even be a state champion. The reasons why I would like to attend Tulsa Welding School is to further my education on welding and it’s also a small sized school located close to home. Tulsa Welding School is only specific for welding and pipefitting and doesn’t have other courses, so you can focus only on what you are really there for. The welding program only takes 7 months to complete, where in other schools it would take about 2 years.
I know that this program will be a very useful help in being college ready when I start in the fall and not being sure in what I have to and don’t have to do. Describe a personal challenge or adversity you’ve experienced and how you were able to overcome that obstacle (provide specific steps that were necessary) A personal challenge that I have experienced had to do with my whole family. My parents and my brother came to the United States to search for a better lifestyle like a lot of immigrants do. Along the way my mom had me, my twin sister, and my little sister and they decided to become US residents. They started to go to the process when I was in middle school and we were all hopeful that they would be get them.
However, my plans can only become possible with the help of the Norwalk Community College Foundation. The NCC Foundation made it possible for me to graduate in a two year frame; it enabled me to take more classes during winter and summer break without having to worry about how I would afford these courses. Nonetheless, I am independently working my way through college without financial assistance from my parents and family members who also face financial crisis. However, the LEAP Transfer Scholarship would substantially allow me not only to focus on learning, but also to graduate in the spring of 2018 with a Bachelor 's degree.
In college you have more freedom when choosing classes, so you can learn more about things that interest you. In college the students pay an outrageous amount of money to take the classes so they are more invested. Students who are attending on scholarships have to maintain a certain GPA therefore they have something to lose if they don’t pay attention. My goal for college is to study pre-medicine at University of Nebraska Lincoln. I have decided to go to University of Nebraska Lincoln because it’s still close to home but I still have enough room to grow up and figure out who I am without relying on my family for everything.
When I became old enough to babysit I couldn’t get enough of it. I loved being with children and helping them learn and grow. When I graduated High School I got a job at a Daycare, which I still work at today. That was when I really knew that being a teacher was the ultimate goal and I was determined to make it happen.
The plan as of now is to complete the program within two years and then continue my education by getting the certifications needed for CT and MRI. There are many reason that I want to attend the program here at VWCC. First, the expense to attend this school is less than many of the other colleges that I could be attending. I have family members that have come out of college with $80,000 + worth of college loan debt, and that’s just for a four-year degree. Me however I’m almost done with my third year and when I’m done I will have completed five years, my debt will be roughly $25,000 give or take a little.
I shadowed teachers and truly believed that teaching was my desired career path. I have experience in different grade levels such as pre-k, kindergarten, and the 2nd grade. Student teaching was an amazing experience, I learned that I am patient, caring ,and the students really respected me as an authority figure, all characteristics I plan to take with me into school counseling. Even though, teaching was a great opportunity,
Eventually motivated I moved up the ranks from shaker-boarder, dish washer, to preparing dough, all during my last term of high school. However, my parents worried that I may dismiss my education for money. After discussing the matter though, it was agreed I would keep my job to pay for college. Having a job though had a big impact on my life, it motivated me to pursue a career, and go to college. Similar to many people my age, I was uncertain with what I wanted to do, or study in college.
The success of others is truly my professional reward and passion. When I started my career in early childhood education, I was fortunate to be mentored by a caring, supportive, and knowledgeable person who skillfully guided me to be the best preschool teacher I could be in the classroom. Having this experience, I knew I wanted to have the opportunity to provide teachers with the same sensitive, intentional, support as they grow and learn to enhance the quality of care they provide the children. I had my first experience mentoring teachers when I was given the opportunity to mentor preschool teachers in my PreK classroom. This
I will still be working at my part-time job for the City of Chino and will be putting money aside for the expenses of my masters program. By this time I will be old enough to qualify as an independent on my FAFSA application and in turn get financial aid to help me get through my last two semesters at San Bernardino. I want to keep over a three point five grade point average so I have better chances of being accepted into a Physical Therapy program. It is also very important that I score well on the GRE exam; this will ensure I have a competitive and increase my chances of attending California State University NorthRidgeAs for my personal life I hope to have a steady girlfriend and maybe even finance. She will have her own goals and be pursuing educations as well.
