To sum everything up college is an opportunity that not everyone has, so being able to attend college is a blessing that no one should take for granted. Having the support and motivation of my family is what keeps me from letting them down as a college student. choosing to attend college is the only way to succeed and expand my knowledge as the nurse I plan to be. finally being able to experience the independency and maturity as a young
Learning to read and write was not an option; it was a requirement. “School will be what makes you succeed in life,” my parents and educators would say. I did not realize how hard it would be to read and write; however, it came natural to me, in the beginning. Struggling many times, several people did not believe in me; however, that never stopped me from wanting to gain more knowledge as I grew older. There has always been more positive people to motivate me whenever I needed inspiration.
There was so much bonding on that team, lots of fights too, which made you really get to know the girls honestly. I love my team to this day and if I wouldn’t have joined that team I would never be who I am today, that’s a fact. B. That team is the reason I made friends in high school and why I learned to be myself and step out of my comfort zone. It may have taken me 4 years but I did it.
There are also temptations I have to face such as choosing whether to hang out with friends or do the homework that is due the next day. But I am able to overcome most of these challenges and temptations with the help of my parents, teachers, and friends who help push me to be the best I can be every day. They are my helpers and mentors; without them, I would not be where I am
At a young age, my mom and dad worked to help support their families and to pay or college. Because they came from humble beginnings, my parents taught me and brother to respect but not worship money, to be generous to those who are not as fortunate, and to work hard and earnestly for the things that we want. My high school education has positively affected my career and life choices. During these four years, I have had, in my opinion, some of the best teachers in the entire Lamar Consolidated district. My teachers have pushed me to achieve my dreams with high expectations and interesting and useful lessons and without their presence in my life, I would not have achieved all that I have now.
Although the feelings didn’t last as long as I’d like they were still important to me, how my classmates could always set the mood, how I’d always be proud of my friend and her accomplishments, and how I was able to feel an emotion I want to feel always. When I graduate from college, I hope I can feel the same way or even better when getting my college

He wanted to strive for his arm to get better and so it was able to move. “Then I lost that scholarship My mother was supposed to fill out a parents financial statement for the renewal of that scholarship” (Gladwell 38). He had to drop out of the college because he was basically forced to. He was trying to look for other deductions and other jobs, he actually found another college but one day he was going to the college and his car broke down which led him to miss his classes and the college told him it was better for him to just drop out.
After I am able to drive, I decided to go back to school to get a degree. I surprised they let me take ESL test when I came to school. I heard from my husband there just have placement test, and I thought English could not improve in a short period, so I decided focus study math. Without surprised, even I felt the ESL test not hard, but I still failed. I felt upset, blamed my husband, and complained school did not give me chance retest in a long time.
I enrolled in college not knowing what exactly to expect and with many doubts but by taking that gigantic leap out of my comfort zone, my life has changed drastically. In high school, I was never the type of student to strive for A’s or to be on the honor roll. My siblings were the ones who did great in school with minimum effort but I struggled and often became discouraged.I remember vividly telling my mother I was going to drop out in the ninth grade. I thought I would be stuck at a warehouse job but now I have goals and dreams, all because I took one
My grades dropped significantly for years. By the time I graduated high school, I had a negative outlook on life. I went to college and ended up not attending classes. I was tired of living a life that had no meaning to
My first year at Brookdale I joined the ALP program because I didn’t get a good grade on the Accuplacer. I decided to join this program so I wouldn’t have to take a English course next semester and be so behind. I joined Brookdale because I didn’t know what I wanted to do as a major and also didn’t know what four year college to go to. I didnt think Brookdale was going to all that great so I didn’t really want to go, but it was the best decision I made. Going to Brookdale was a good choice for me.
It was my last year and all I wanted to do was have fun. I stopped doing my homework and studying for all my tests, I began to worry about boys and all the fun times my friends and I would have. I got suspended and asked to get sent to a anger management school to help me focus a bit more on myself, nobody would have expected that from
