But my decision is final, so I shifted to nursing even though I’m incoming 3rd year in my Computer Science course and shifting to nursing means I will be 1st year again. I understand the reason why my father is not agreeing on my decision at that time. He feels that I wasted 2 years of my college at the same time he can’t afford nursing in case my aunt change her mind. My family is poor but my father believe that education is the only treasure he can give that no one else can take. Despite of everything, I enrolled in nursing for first semester.

Her passing during my second year of college, though made me very sad, was a wake-up call to not to continue to be unhappy. I should not be living unsatisfied and unmotivated each day. After her funeral, I began to work harder in school and in life; I got my first job, I made several connections, and I got on the Dean’s List. Sometimes I think I’m working so hard for Ms. Tong but it is me working hard for myself, and that is the self-motivation that Ms. Tong has taught

She could not afford the price of the sorority on top of the price of school sadly. She wants me to do a sorority because she never had the opportunity too. That's why I went to the camp out.

However, my sophomore year led me to take a different perspective.

I applied to the HOSA program and was one of three juniors who were accepted.
My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before. I began slacking off inside as well as outside of the classroom. I stopped doing homework to my best ability’s, stopped studying for tests, and worst of all I was lying to my mother. For almost four months I treated my mother poorly. I constantly lied to her face about how my grades were.
