After graduating from MHS, the next challenge in my mission to ascend from my circumstances was to become the best student at The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State). With consideration of my mother not graduating high school, it was imperative and self- driving that I reward her sacrifices by excelling in my academic career. Eager to outperform, consequently, I earned the Smeal Merit Diversity Scholarship for three consecutive years (Freshmen-Junior) at Penn State. This prestigious scholarship is only awarded to the top five minority business students at Penn State. In addition to my academic successes, I became very active on campus and served as a leader at the top of four different campus-organizations.

If you take one of the many business class at Minnetonka such as Entrepreneurship, Marketing or Accounting, or if you participate in any of the VANTAGE programs, a majority of your year as well as your final grade will be dedicated to one project. The class is designed so that your exact project can be used as is for a DECA competition. This is great if you are my 10th grade self and decide to join in DECA just because you have already completed the project. This is not so great if you are my 11th or 12h grade self; you still want to participate in DECA but are expected to do an entire semester class’s work in your “free time”. When asking most of my friends why they do not do DECA, the most common answer is that they simply do not have the time for it.
In this situation, I have recently graduated with my business degree and have landed a new position at a company I had been researching during my senior year in college. I have been offered a lump-sum, sign-on bonus of $5,000 and have also recently purchased a new condo and car. My personal debt is comprised of these two new purchases as well as my student loans. When considering my debt reduction and investment earnings potential and any applicable taxes I would personally choose to invest the $5,000 sign-on bonus and pay down my debt. In this example, tax rates are stable over the next 10 years and inflation is low and does not change.
The associates degree at a two year community college is becoming the newest way to combat rising college costs. Students are no longer seeing enrollment as a freshman in a four year college as the only path to a degree. The stigma attached to attending community college has declined while at the same time the attitude towards the cost of attending a four year school has been one of growing disdain. My dad has attended the Bethel Park High School graduation for the last twenty-five years and he said he has noticed an obvious increase in the number of students listing Community College of Allegheny County for their post high school plans in the graduation program. The cost per year at a community college makes it an attractive option to limit the aggregate cost of a four year degree.

Having a college education gives you a base that will allow you to be successful in anything you chose to do.

Throughout the past four years of my high school career, I have always looked forward to college: the idea of freedom, growing up, and being able to make my own choices; all of these prospects have excited me until a few months ago. As I walked into the auditorium for a meeting about ordering graduation caps and gowns, I did not expect to come out with an entirely new perspective, characterized by fear for college and for surviving without the two people who have taken care of me my entire life. An empowering entrepreneur, Dr. Randall Hansen, CEO and Publisher of EmpoweringSites.com, wrote the article, How to Survive – and Excel in – Your College Years, which contained twenty-five tips to help upcoming college freshman not only survive but
I am extremely excited to be able to study abroad, however my GPA is a possible deterrent to this opportunity. Last semester, I had 16 credits and it was my first semester in the business school. I also began a role as peer mentor, switched jobs mid semester, and moved off campus as well. All of this adjustment contributed to my semester not starting off as strong as it should have. I really struggled with Accounting 100.
