Seeing them sacrifice everything for me since the day I was born, I want to reassure her that I will not live a difficult life in poverty and the only way to get out of poverty is through a college education.
I love my sister and my nephew, but I want what is best for me and for any children that I might have in the future: stability, freedom and choice. I believe the best way to achieve this is to go to college. I will forever be grateful for the encouragement my family gives me. My grandma, my aunt, my mom and my sister are all wonderful mothers, but they know how important it is for me to break the cycle of teenage pregnancy and go to college. As I complete my college applications I feel as if all my hard work in school is finally paying off and my childhood dream of going to college is becoming a reality.
That is what this life is about. You sacrifice for those you love. That is what my parent’s did. They brought my sister and I to this land of opportunity and even though they used their chance on us, their chance to follow their dreams, I will follow mine for them.

My parents have guided me throughout my life with valuable life lessons. One moral in particular they have taught me is that I should enjoy what I value the most in life.

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.
