Growing up, I saw how my mom struggled to find a career she enjoys with just her high school diploma, even though she is a very intelligent person. Seeing her unhappy and unfulfilled made me determined to change the order that I make my choices in life. Don’t get me wrong, I want to have a family eventually. But instead of having a child first, like all of the women in my family before me, I want to complete my education and start my career. Family will come after.
Jeannette’s life was hell from the time she was born until she grew up and started realizing what she wanted to do and that was to be successful. Jeannette gets asked if she owes her success as a child or did she become a women because of her childhood. Jeannette became the women she is because of her childhood no in spite it these are the reasons why? Her Education from her parents are not school, the freedom they had, and hardship. Her education I think changed a lot she went to school , But she knew sooner or later they would move again, without her dad she wouldn’t be able to know as much information as she did going to school but she learned a lot from her mom and dad.
That comment from his mother stayed with him for years to come. I do not want to be that person that says something negative that will never get out of a student’s mind. I want to be the teacher that they remember as always being helpful and who always encouraged them to succeed. I will also have to watch out for other students in schools that could be picking on the disabled student. Hopefully this would not be a big problem, but there are many
Throughout my entire life, I have challenged myself not only academically but also to better myself, and my community. I try my best at everything that I do, whether that is in my schoolwork, at home, or at work after school. Often times when people hear that I am an only child, they assume that I get everything handed to me, but that assumption is completely wrong. My parents have always taught me that you must work for success. I believe that I have been pretty independent for most of my life, not only because my parents got divorced when I was ten years old, and because I am an only child, but also because my dad moved to Colorado leaving me with only my mom and grandparents in town as my family.
I decided to become a nurse because I feel I am capable of achiving it. I also want to continue to climb the ladder until I am in a position that I am being challenged every day. I also want to live comfortably in these harder economic times. Growing up I was always an average student. I didn’t really know how to apply myself and in some classes I did’t care to because they were uninteresting to me.
Before I became a mother I felt as though I had all the time I wanted to take care of my education. This all changed once I held her for the first time; the realization that if I wanted to provide a good life for her I could no longer procrastinate on my education. I needed to
Going back to school has always been on my mind but never a priority. I allowed other life distractions to interfere. After what seems like years of trying to find my identity and motivation, I have finally decided to go back to school to better not only my life but my daughter’s as well. Being a single mother of one, I want my daughter to see that not only your skill set, but a college degree is a great way to start your career and meet the expectations you set for yourself. The expectations I have for myself are finishing my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and eventually finishing with my MBA in Human Resources.
My mom worked long hours, so we rarely went out anymore. I was often in charge of looking after my sisters, and I’d make up games and stories for them, fueling my creativity. We didn’t have much, and it doesn’t seem like anything special, but those three years of seeing my mom work so intensely to provide for us, of waiting for my dad’s phone calls, and having to take responsibility for my sisters, it all helped me become increasingly mature and independent. My mom became my role model, and I strived to grow up to be like her, so I studied diligently in school and made A’s. I began drawing in my spare time with my sisters, and that was the very start of my passion towards my
Stressfully, the demands fall on the oldest child, which I have trouble dealing with. I cannot explain the reasons why, but my mom is living proof of it. Over time, however, I learned to accept the reasons behind her expectations. When I was an only child, my mom never pressured me on grades until my sister
I had no choice but to learn how to deal with conflicting thoughts and feelings about the person I once admired. I developed healthy ways to manage my stress and one of those ways was therapy; I begged my mother to let me take it. I also learned to focus all the negativity into something positive. My academics. Although my freshman year wasn't perfect I managed to keep at 3.0 average that year, while having to adjust to what it felt to me at the time, a new
