By getting accepted as a Coolidge I will have the mentoring experience that I have always wished for. I will also get to become an impregnable leader through the training program. This is important because to improve a community one has to be an exemplary leader first. Furthermore, I would love to become a greater leader because currently in my generation, regrettably, only one member has gone to college. My parents unfortunately did not even get a full elementary education because of this I see on a daily basis how a life without proper education is like.
The idea that education is a vital part of life if a value that I have understood since a very young age. As my mother cared for my siblings and I at a young age she did not have the opportunity to attend university and has faced some struggles in her professional life due to this. Because of this, my mother made a commitment to give me the best possible opportunities available; This led to me being very lucky and obtaining a bursary for Robert Gordon’s College, this created a great opportunity for me and was, what I believe to be, the main factor in pushing me towards understanding the importance in hard work and dedication in order to get where you desire in life. Because of my mother sacrifices over the years I have been able to devote the time and energy that was needed in order for me to obtain a
Throughout all of my years at school, I have been constantly reminded by my parents that I must do my very best in school so that my college will be paid for, because they wouldn’t have enough money to put me through. The ASPMA Scholarship would mean a lot to me as it would help me greatly and enhance my college experience by allowing me to have the highest possible grades, help me grow into an involved, more social person, and relieve some stress that inevitably comes to every college student. Since I would rather not assume student loans during college, I must work if my scholarships don’t cover all of my school expenses. The more I work, the less time I will have to study, and the more stressed out I will be. I believe the ASPMA Scholarship will help me to have the best grades possible because with more funds, I will have to work less, giving me more time to study and less scenarios to worry about.
I treat others as I want to be treated. I am a strong believer that giving is more important than receiving, I donate clothes every year to those that are less fortunate than me. I love helping others and contributing to their happiness. I will be going to school for my nursing degrees and eventually to be a nurse anesthesiologist. After I start my career, I love to start a charity.
Mental Health counselor is the best career for me because it will bring me personal satisfaction, financial stability, and abilities to help others. First, a career as a mental health counselor would bring me personal satisfaction. In 7th grade, I started noticing deep cuts on the arms and legs of my fellow students, and dealt with those who felt like there is no hope for them. I’ve had to sit there and watch as those I care about fall to depression and beg to die, knowing there is very little I can do to help them. According to US News & World Report, “Mental health counselors work with people from all walks of life.The job involves solving problems people face” (“Mental Health Counselor”).
Being self-sufficient has helped me have my life together, and have a lot of independence. I am glad I got to experience this, fore it has made me the person I am today.

They actually are very capable of taking care of children in a healthy environment. Single parents lack the animosity from former spouses, reduced income, and insecurity with the new status of being a single parent (Family Education). This allows for the children to grow up in loving and caring environment reducing the number of children with social issues. There are many single parents (biological) around the world due to divorce, deployment, or death of spouses so why can’t single adopters have children? (Child Welfare Information Gateway, Pg.
Everyone has a responsibility to do. However, for working student like me that having a part-time job while taking college courses is a big responsibility. I decided to go to school full-time and work part-time to learn to become independent. In the essay “Working at Wendy’s” by Joey Franklin, he makes a case for setting aside pride to provide the daily needs of a family. On the other hand, I think it was great to have the experience as long as it made me more money.
My passion for helping and supporting those whose economic and financial standings have hindered their growth in our society, has driven me towards social work. I feel I have exhausted every possible avenue in my current degree field. Pursuing a master’s in Social Work, will give me the diversity that I need, while aiding me in bringing my dreams of working more in depth with clients, by helping assist them with their individual needs and issues to reality. The Social work field also offers versatility which allows me to work in many dimensions, such as clinical, case management, and many other composites which enables me to help every population. Becoming a social worker gives me other benchmarks in which I can use to evaluate programs,
I saw at first-hand the impact of diseases including, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, but more importantly, I witnessed the impact of empathy and good care had on a patient and their families. This experience helped me learn how to overcome challenges faced when caring for patients each day and it reinforced my motivation to work as hard as possible to succeed in nursing school and continue to work to care for others. The experience also provided an opportunity to act as leader since the assisted care home I worked at this past summer was understaffed due to a change in ownership and some staff changes. When my team was short caregivers, I made sure that I spent more time with each patient to ensure they did not have anxiety about the change and end up worried and feeling alone. I found that a few minutes of companionship and
With the classes I am taking in college, I will be preparing for my future job. In my job, I will be required to write reports and solve many problems/ cases. In college I will be improving my high school education, which will improve my skills for my future job, this meaning, I will he helping improve my community. Now, to discuss money. I do not have a source of income, currently, my parents are paying for my college education.
The important information that all college students and families should know is how much will the education cost and will they be able to repay the loans after graduation. “Perhaps the most important mathematic exercise your child will ever have to do—and the most widely neglected—is figure out how much it will cost to pay back her student loans” (Bodnar, 288). Knowing the total amount of your education and how much the monthly loan payment will be after graduation will before entering college is very important and should be considered before entering your chosen university. This topic is important because many college graduates have a hard time finding jobs where they can earn enough money to pay back their loans and still have enough money to pay their monthly bills. Many student go into default on their loans and have their wages and income taxes garnished and this will affect them for years to come when they are looking to start a family or buy a
It’s how you save somebody’s life” (163). If Jolly did not learn CPR, her life as a mother could change if something did happen to her child and she did not know what to do. Jolly going to school has a huge impact on her identity because it gives her confidence that she can take care of her kids and her apartment. The school also made her believe that she can actually be good at something if you try hard enough. Jolly could not have got those grades without trying.
My family is very supportive towards my career goals, which is to become a Register Nurse so I can help people around the world, and one day make an organization to help people whom also struggle. Helping others will make myself proud as well, because I know how it feels to have moments where people struggle and sometimes it’s hard to move on from all the struggles, but in life you have to stay motivated through the hardest
I have to take this necessary path for a better life for me. My mom and I went to MDC to register as a student. The counselor gave me a list of things I have to do, so I have a lot of hoops to go through in order to be a student. First step is to apply for financial aid. Applying for financial aid was easier said than done.
