I want to be able to work with people and be able to help them because doing so, makes me feel good and accomplished to feel like I am making a difference in somebody’s life. It is why I donate blood. I have always loved science and I think I would really enjoy doing something that relates to it and uses it everyday. It is not just science, but the human body that really interests me. My hope is that getting a job in the medical field before graduate school will give me more first hand experience with the science of the human body.
One of my friends asks why I don’t do this for a living. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to take what was fun to me and turn it into a job. After I thought about for a while I felt like it was time to make a move. Also, I was a regular at planet fitness and knew all the managers. One day one of the managers ask if I wanted to work for them once I received my degree and or my certification.
All in all, studying biomedical science in a university like deakin would be very exciting, knowledgeable and rewarding for me. upon the completion of my course, i would like to come back to my home country, India and can enter a vast number of health related industries including medical research, genetic engineering and labortary technology. and if i get a chance i would like to advance to honours or postgraduate studies, either in more specialised areas of biomedical
For me, it was two out of the three. I've never had a really high self-esteem and I've always told myself that I couldn't do what other people could. Growing up, I've had great role models that did amazing things for the world. They were all confident, intelligent, and athletic. I used to dream about growing up to be just like them!
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 will be a first-generation college student next fall, and I know that I will be successful because I have always been able to overcome the obstacles I face. The challenge of moving to a new country, struggling to survive, and learn a new language have all led to who I am today, and for that, I feel I am a better person. Your investment in me today will certainly help bring a brighter future for me
I decided to apply to the University of Wisconsin-Madison because of their nursing school’s collaboration with scientists and renowned researchers across the UW-Madison campus, the nation, and the world. This school will help me network with the best researchers and scientists whom I can learn and grow from. The university is the third largest research university in the country and will help me further my career in research as a nursing student. Research is very important in the nursing field due to the fast growing pace of diseases and illnesses. There needs to be new techniques in developing cures and care plans, especially treatment that are unique to each individuals’ needs.
At a young age, my mom and dad worked to help support their families and to pay or college. Because they came from humble beginnings, my parents taught me and brother to respect but not worship money, to be generous to those who are not as fortunate, and to work hard and earnestly for the things that we want. My high school education has positively affected my career and life choices. During these four years, I have had, in my opinion, some of the best teachers in the entire Lamar Consolidated district. My teachers have pushed me to achieve my dreams with high expectations and interesting and useful lessons and without their presence in my life, I would not have achieved all that I have now.
College is one of the most significant times in a person’s life. Every year high school kids will visit many different colleges so that they can be confident in their college decision. Some kids will follow in their parent’s foot steps and base their decision on where their mom or dad went, though, not all kids are fortunate to have help from their parents. Many kids nowadays may be the first in their family to take on higher education. The article, “First Generation College Students: Unprepared and Behind” by Liz Riggs explains that kids who are the first in their family to take on college are at a disadvantage compared to kids with parents who attended college.
