The only way to grow and prosper is to accept everyone as they are and work together to reach your common goal. This is something that UT does very well and I know I can continue to push this initiative. Upon graduation from the Haslam College of Business I plan to enroll in the two-year MBA program. Being able to earn my masters at UT will be incredibly beneficial for me as I begin my career right here in Tennessee. I cannot wait until I have the opportunity to give back to the university that has already done so much for me.
I hope to exceed my own expectations, along with those of my peers and mentors, by participating wholly throughout the rest of high school and while attending college. I also anticipate full participation of my time solely to my collegiate studies. I will put forth all of my time and effort to crafting my education into the
My hope for a college experience is to leave the familiar environment of Illinois and explore a new social and geographic climate. I am looking for a strong academic and extracurricular focus in a university, and I believe I have found that mix at the University of Colorado at Boulder. I hope to see the value of my classes as they contribute to the whole of my degree, and to appreciate the lessons taught in every subject I study, required or not. I think that through the pursuit of academic success, I can find more than a degree, at CU Boulder. I would learn, not just material, but life skills - and prepare myself for the bright future ahead of me.
About 18 years ago, I became a part of my parents life. As usual, they taught me basic discipline, defense, leadership and more. My family is from Hispanic heritage, where completing a college education is not expected for the future. As a result, my parents enforced the importance of education, and encouraged me to graduate high school and further my education by attending the college of my choice. In addition, I have recently graduated high school with Honors, and it was an incredible feeling being able to make my parents proud knowing that I am the first Honor graduate even in my extended family.
It’s been a truly remarkable journey, full of unimaginable experiences and life lessons. From going to a public middle school to an Early College High School; I never knew how much I’d learn throughout my educational experience. When I first heard about the Early College High School program offered in my hometown I knew right away it was something I wanted to be a part of, being that I 'm from a small town in North Carolina. It would be a challenge for me to complete, but I personally like a challenge, which is why Early College was the right program for me to participate in. I faced many challenges throughout my educational experience at SEarCH (Scotland Early College High School).
I hope that by participating in Roosevelt’s Graduate Assistantship I am able to continue to push myself beyond the limits. A continued personal goal for me is to not only be the first member of my family to go to college, but also be the first to obtain my master’s degree. At an earlier age it was instilled that knowledge and education the ultimate key to success.
From a young age, I have known and understood the true importance of obtaining a college education and have strived to be the first in my family to attend college. Since then, PSJA ISD has helped me want to further my education after high school by integrating college curriculum into the classroom. The Ivy League Tour is yet another academic opportunity that I can benefit from. By being selected to participate in this Ivy League Tour, I would gain knowledge of the post high school opportunities that lay beyond the Rio Grande Valley, get a better understanding of the college environment, and garner more motivation to make my dream career a reality. Firstly, one of the biggest educational goals I hope to achieve from this tour would be to learn
I want to attend college to further my education, be a role model to others and to better the life I live today. Furthering my education is important to me, I am always eager to learn something new and implement it within my daily activities. Being the first generation in my family to attend college is an enormous accomplishment to my family and myself. I will be able to show my family that anything is possible with hard work and determination, and I will be able to be that role model to my niece that I never had growing up until I got to High School. I want to be successful in life and let my happiness portray as a way of giving thanks to the ones who guided me along the way my last four years and give back to my community one day.
Being a first generation student in my family has always motivated my desire to succeed academically. So, I was always encouraged to put my education in front of everything else. I believe that going to college will help me figure out my hidden skills and develop my full potential to adjust in the real world. I want to be a psychologist, helping and counselling people. For this, I need to earn a doctorate degree.
They don’t have an idea of what a college student do. They don’t even know the steps to achieve success (“Why Do Students Fail? Faculty 's Perspective”, 2014). Lot of teenagers is simply not ready for the exhaustive schedule of higher level program. That is why many students take a break after a semester (Dasko, M., 2008), • Lack of Effort Effort is one of the reasons why students fail to succeed.
