It took me a little over two years to finally decide on a major, and to this day I am still working on my biology degree as a new transfer student at Rowan University. Picking my major wasn’t an easy path, but its what I needed to do to make a final decision. The question that I mentioned earlier “ What will you be doing on this date 20 years from now?” played a huge factor in me deciding what I wanted my major to be. I couldn’t see myself working with computers for the rest of my life I found it to be quite boring, and throughout high school and even in college I always had a passion for science. Learning about animals played a huge part in me role in me picking biology as my science of choice.
Indeed I 'd struggled on and off for years to figure out a way to change (making, it seemed to me, every career change mistake there was to make), but without making progress. Eventually, as you 'll read below, I came out the other side. But it wasn 't an easy journey. These are the lessons I learnt along the way. What you need to know If you 're stuck in your career change, there are three main challenges – or paradoxes – that you 're going to come up against.
Also I saw the difficulty that my parents were having for not going to college or having a low level of education. Growing up my parents started to tell me “ that if I want to be successful you have to go to school”, and still I would not listen to them because to me it was absurd to keep going to school after high school. Life as a child is very different then the life of a teenager, young adult, adult or someone that is about to retire. As a child I just want to play around, and just have fun, and continue on the path that I wanted. Yet as I got older especially middle of my junior year in high school, reality hit me in the face, it felt like being hit with a baseball bat, I saw that I wanted to become somebody big in the Army respected by all soldiers,and people, and for me to do that I have to become well educated, have a good personality, and most importantly love God and this country.
I will not dream about success I’ll always work for it. As the only child in the family I knew that I have a massive responsibility on my shoulders. My parents knew the value of education and they sent me to one of the prestigious colleges in the country. From a youthful age my heart was in the Science and Technology field. Constantly back in my primary schooling age I have reminded my mother “mother, I want to be a scientist someday”.
I mainly became a college student because my father had the resources for me to be able to apply with some scholarships. Without that, I'm not sure I would be here, because my family is very against student loans. My mom really pushed me to go to college as well, but I too have the interest in getting my first degree. My mother, father, and two older sisters have all had some college education. I'm not sure if this influenced me in anyway, besides one of my older sisters having trouble finishing her online courses.
I learned that for my desire to be proficient in life I would have to attend college. From a young age, I knew that I had an opportunity that many of my family members, unfortunately, did not; which motivated me to put all my efforts in school, as I was not willing to lose a life-changing
Despite how much I have grown and matured in recent years, one thing has not changed about me: I still aspire to become a bilingual pediatrician.While I concede that graduating from medical school someday will be no easy feat, I am ready to take on any challenge that will stand in the way of becoming a doctor. Every student has inner ‘demons’ that he or she deals with personally. For me, my ‘demons’ like to follow me around all day, especially at school. Anxiety is my ‘demon’-- the monster that likes to accompany me as I sit in class and walk around halls. It is not something I talk about to most individuals.
I believe in an alternate life I would have strived to become a doctor or a chiropractor or something fun with the human body. Honestly, I just wanted to study science and discover about the natural world, or be able to diagnose myself. That all was fine and dandy, but somewhere along the way of my baseball clock winding down, and the realization that a business degree was something I never really wanted, or honestly really even needed, I knew something needed to change. The fall of 2014 was my last semester as a baseball player and was my inoculation into a scientific interest that would carry me into
Ever since I was little I knew that I wanted to work in the medical field. I loved science, I loved people, and I was that one kid who actually enjoyed going to the doctor’s office for their regular check-up. Now, I realize that childhood dreams do not always come true, but as I am approaching my senior year of college, working hard to achieve a degree in biology, my goals seem so close and so attainable. Coming into college I had no idea what to expect of the next 4 years of my life, but I can promise you that I never could have guessed that I would be where I am today. As a freshman, I thought my college experience would be simple.
