The volunteer work I plan on doing involves over 800 hours of service during that year. Having my volunteer work as well as my career pathway is sure to challenge me and keep me going.
The infamous answer to the question, “What is your primary goal for going to school?” is “to further my education, get a job, and be successful” such a cliché if I must say myself. My goal attending school is to make my family happy, as well as myself. In high school, I did not apply myself like I should have done because I was not sure if college was in my favor. Also, being the child of a single parent wanting to attend college seemed impossible, especially far from home.

Going to college has always been a dream of mine, I never knew what I wanted to major in or any clue of what career I wanted to go into.

I want to make them so proud and happy than they could ever be. My parents never got to college, and my brother wants to go to college.
Achieving a higher education is a dream of mine. I am not your traditional college student I am thirty-one, African American female and a mother of a six year old son. Coming from a family that has little means, the thought of attempting to go to college was farfetch, something that was merely impossible to achieve.

Growing up in Oakland Ca in a neighborhood that others seen as impoverished I called home and treated it as such.

I will continue my education as a Nursing major at a four year university.
