Growing up, my parents pushed me to do my best in school; I didn’t question it much, although looking back, I recognize that schooling is a vital component to be successful in life. I will be attending UNR this fall, the first in my family to do so. Being a first generation college student, my parents cannot provide any information regarding college classes, scholarships, or tutoring. I’ve worked diligently throughout high school but I cannot venture into college blind; TRiO would be a highly beneficial program enabling me to reach my potential in college.
Students will learn and comprehend the importance of college, which will motivate them to graduate high school and start their journey after. Knowing about all these things are important benefits that students will learn from attending and participating in these types of
When I first started this course, I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew it would educate me on the matters of choosing a career and post-secondary life but I never realized how in-depth it would be. In the end, I learned so much from this course, I now have a post-secondary plan in mind, and I know which path I need to take to get there. When I look back on all I achieved in the two short weeks of this course, I am extremely proud of all I achieved.
Once I got to High School joined a program at my school called Upward Bound Which is a college readiness program at my school. I attend South St.Paul Secondary where my teachers had recommended me to sign up for Upward Bound which is run by Trio. The trio is a program that is funded by the government to help children get prepared for college and all of the information they will
In conclusion, I believe I would be a great fit for this program and will benefit now and later from it. I will use these college credits to get accepted into the college of my dreams after high school to pursue a career I will love for the rest of my life, I am beyond motivated to be the first person in my family to graduate from college and get into the field of my dreams. I aspire to be the greatness my parents and I know I can
After reviewing the course catalog and seeing the types of classes offered, I believe this program will prepare me to reach my goals. I also have a lot to offer the program including coming from a diverse background, my personal experience, and my work
This experience will help me learn in dependency and learning the life without my parent. Also they have a nursing major that will prepare me for my profession which is to go back to Ethiopia and give back to my community. I place so much value in education and at one of this University I want to earn my Bachelor’s degree in
Initially, my entire high school career, I have worked exceedingly with every activity that I have done. In this case, maintaining a 3.6 GPA and ranking 14 out of 122 of my classmates has shown my commitment to my education. While attending school every day, I cultivate my academic skills to overachieve expectations. To
Just as with many of my previous academic moments it continued the drive I had already had. While my education continued to teach me valuable lessons and give me hands on experience I began to gain a stronger sense rooted in development and the protection of others by hopefully continuing my education at Loyola University Chicago in the Masters of Social Work/Masters of Arts in Social Justice Program which would give me the opportunity to not only eventually become a social worker with the Department of Social Services (DSS), with a school, or a guardian ad litem but to do that work effectively with the chance that would be afforded to me of an academic background steeped in social work as well as social justice teachings. This program in particular continues the undergraduate work and furthers my education on my path to my
For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be an Occupational Therapist. I always want to do things to help others in any way I can. Personally I have witnessed what this occupation can do to change the lives of others. To reach my goal, I realize I must pursue a six year college education which will begin with the fall 2017 semester. I am very excited about my future and I feel as if your scholarship will help me reach my goal.
Recently, I began a mission to find a great college to attend. After careful consideration and several reasons, I chose to start my process at Suny Empire State College. I majored in psychology fifteen years ago while attending Long Island University Brooklyn Campus but unfortunately, I did not complete. Instead, I chose to begin a beautiful family. Needless to say, I am not the typical age of a college student.
At the very outset of my undergraduate program, I formulated a plan for my academic development, outlining the objectives that I must achieve at different stages of the program. With due efforts, I have attained almost all of them. My
