I was born exactly ninety-one years to the day that Dr. Alice Stewart was. Although this may seem to be a relatively insignificant coincidence, I assure you it 's not. My role model, Dr. Stewart discovered how x-rays were linked to leukemia and other cancers in people exposed, leading to many current methods of treatments. Now if I told you my life ambition was to research to find better treatment methods and even a cure for cancer, a coincidence would seem more like fate. Often at family get-togethers, my mother recalls my numerous makeshift experiments she survived through my childhood. From putting tin foil in a microwave, to catching frogs and observing speech patterns, to more elaborate experiments such as finding out how protein breaks
My mother and father have always wanted the best for me, like all good parents do. One of the many things that they expect from me is to receive a college education, something that they never had the chance to do. My parents always advise me to not to make the same mistakes as they did, to go to college so I can get a good job and not have to struggle in my life.
Ever since grade school, I was passionate about working in the field of medicine, and science. I enjoyed anatomy, medical spelling and terminology, and reading about the healthcare industry. Because of my passion for healthcare, I decided to to attend Health Sciences High. There, I was given the best opportunities, such as, medical internships and college health courses. My plans and goals had turned me into a mature young adult. Now that I have my mind set on my aspirations, I hope to practice the qualities needed to be a triumphant dentist and dental surgeon. Of course everyone wants success, wealth, and happiness in the future. My long term goal is to pursue a career in the field of dentistry and earn my DDS (doctorate in dental surgery)
I am interested in Howard University because it is an HBCU that encompass the themes of cultural diversity and education. Your commitment to scholars ensures me that at your school I will be right at home. Since I intend on on going down a medical path, I know that Howard University will provide me with best resources to follow my dreams. As a child I was always interested in the worlds around me and how things worked. As a result I participated in a Summer Enrichment Program located at Indiana University in Bloomington. There I explored all of the different STEM fields. From the experience I have developed a love for biology and learning how small things affect larger things in the world around me. The next summer I participated in the Summer Science Research
My life and journey towards Cornell has been one characterized by struggle. Throughout my childhood, I was raised in two families which highly valued critical thinking and education. As such, I was always expected to ask “Why?” “Why?” was the question that could bring me an education. “Why?” could help me learn more about my surroundings and how I could improve them. I also asked that question when my mother and birth father divorced. I questioned why my father left and why my mom and I moved. What I realize now is that, without my parents divorcing, I could not have received the opportunities afforded to me.
As a first generation student to attend college from a family of seven, the journey to a higher education has been arduous and overwhelming. My family gives me all the encouragement I need and are very optimistic about pursuing a higher degree. Unlike myself, my parents did not have the opportunity to attend college. My parents were born and raised in a small town in Mexico where the highest level of education they received was fifth grade. I have worked since I was 14 years old to support my parents with bills, and also saving for college and my own vehicle. I have not had any interruptions during my education, because I was able to balance work, babysitting, studying, and attending class on time. Although I managed not having any interruptions
If anyone has ever went to high school, then they have heard about college. Everyone has a different point of view on the idea of college. Part of it depends on how someone was raised. If a person’s parent or guardian drilled the idea of college into your head, or if they told you ‘do what you want’ or ‘I don 't care’, or ‘You’re not going’. While college is great, there are other means of education.The value of college is a low because there are people who do not qualify for a college education, and also because there are other ways of post-secondary education other than college.
When I was in the fifth grade I had joined West Side Boys & Girls Club they had opened my eyes on how to be friendly and how to respect others around you.They had prepared me on how to include people and how to open up myself and how to get ready for college and what it has to offer me.
College and universities are the final steps in someone’s educational journey. To go away to college is the dream, the American dream. College is where students find their future, to work for a degree, and to find out what they want to be, but at what cost? College is not cheap, a hefty fee is often payed by those who want to attend, often out of their own wallets. It is no secret that funding a college education is getting harder and harder. Thus begs the question, is the charge of Universities becoming too high? Yes, college costs have skyrocketed over the past decade (citation). Being capable of going off to a university to acquire an education is slipping for countless people due to the rising costs.
I attended college right after college because I wanted to add to what I’ve already learned in high school. Also I knew what I wanted to do and be in life. The things that was taught in high school was still be fresh to me. I was one of the fortune students who qualified for TOPS and federal grants to pay for my pricy tuition. I think if I would have had to pay out of pocket for tuition, I would have been one of those who would have set out for a while before attending. Those who attend college right out of high school has an advantage over those who sit out. My first years of college was successful, which makes think I’ve made the right
Going to college is probably one of the most important things that I have done in my life so far. Thinking back to everything I have done in the past ten years or so, I can see that taking to leap of faith to join college and further my education was such a huge step for me and I am glad that I did. Before I joined Southern New Hampshire University, I knew I would need some motivation to enroll. I remember a story my father told me about how he had gone to Technical College and became a licensed Master Mechanic and that really motivated me to want to further my education. Also, my brother had talked to me about two months ago and had told me his experience with going to college to earn his English degree and me, being the competitive brother I am, didn’t want him to be the only sibling to earn a degree.
I was born in Anderson, Indiana, the first child and only daughter to a northern Pennsylvania-bred father and a southern-Louisiana mother. My family, and specifically the backgrounds of my parents, has had a profound impact on the person I am today. From my father, I inherited a strong work ethic and a determination to accomplish whatever I set out to do. My father was a teacher for many years and he instilled in me the importance of education and life-long learning. As a result, I’m still taking college courses and always looking to learn new things. From my mother, I got my sense of responsibility to family and to those around me. I have witnessed countless times when my mother reached out to people in their times of distress to help meet their material needs or just offer friendship and a listening ear. I
I enjoy engineering, in fact when I get older I want to become a biomedical engineer. I want to be able to help people. As well as find solutions to help people in their everyday lives. So that hopefully it would make life easier and less stressful for them. I enjoy all the problem solving that comes with engineering. I like having to find the solution when there is a problem with your design. Or even finding the solution to fix something that has now become old or broken. I enjoy working on different types of projects and learning new things, such as the mousetrap car, ten 80, balsawood bridge and or the water bottle rocket. All these projects are different in many ways and through working on each of these projects, I have gained new and different skills as well as an understanding of new and different things.
Most community college students have a life outside their school life. Some may have more priorities than others, but they still have to pay for things, manage time, and most work at least a minimum of ten hours . There are many students that don 't return for the second year at a community college for many reasons, but the main reason is that many community college students have experienced debt. Which leads to why many first time Community College students don 't return for the second year due to money issues.
As a child, I dreamed of acquiring a career in Nursing. I was always fascinated by the amount of respect that nurses received during my doctor visits throughout my childhood. There are many reasons why I chose to major in Nursing such as the ability to take care of someone, the money and benefits that the career offered, as well as job stability and flexibility.
