To take this risk, Guido had to have faith in God that he would not get in trouble, and that everything would work out, and it did.
Without education, there’s really no future for anyone. Getting good grades goes above anything. This is important because it will determine if I am eligible to attend college. Grades may seem like a minor detail but when it comes to applying, it’s what matters the most. Graduating from high school is a really big deal and it’s time for me to start paying attention to my education instead of worrying about my friends because chances are that they won’t be by my side once I leave go to college.
My parents worked hard to get where they are today and they encourage my brother and I to do more than they ever could. My brother has also started attending Gonzaga and they are extremely proud Zag parents.
I had no idea that college tuition was so expensive, I would hear people speak about it, but it doesn’t quite reside with you until you’ve experienced it for yourself. My first semester of college, financial aid only covers about two-thirds of my tuition, and with three kids in college, I had to get a job to help out my parents out. This job then began affecting my school work and ultimately I had to quit. I then resorted to applying for scholarships, and that’s what helped me out a lot. What colleges don’t understand is that their expensive tuition does not only affect your pocket, but also your overall performance in school.

Helen Villalobos Mrs. Cintas ERWC Per.3 September 9, 2016 Personal Statement “Your father and I didn’t have a chance to finish school and you have the opportunity to go and make a career out of it. I don’t want you to grow up and have to work some much like us, struggling and being so tired. I want you to become something in life that your are going to enjoy and I want us to be your motivation to do good and go on with your education. We will always support you and provide for you in anything we can.” My mother’s words helped me set my dreams from this day on, and my dreams kept getting bigger each day.
On a more individual scale, too, the relevance of Christ is seen. As we live in a society where instant gratification and one 's own self reign supreme, it seems as though Christianity is "moderately important" to most people. They believe that their careers, income, or social standing determines their success or wolfh, but even talking to my friends who aren 't religious, I feel that more people now are realizing that there 's a certain emptiness or repetitiveness that can 't be cured by money, good grades, or a dream job. This is where the relevance of Jesus comes into play; people want a sense of fulfillment or to find a deeper meaning of life, and I honestly believe that the only thing that ultimately satisfies these longings is Christ.
One year living in America required lots of effort from my family. My parents cannot speak English, and they are almost sixty years old which make it even harder for them to find a job in California. But they are still trying and doing everything they can to support me. Fortunately, American is so generous to give me an opportunity to have a great education even when I cannot afford it. Every day, I tell myself to try harder to have good grade in class to pay back for my parents’ effort, to say “Thank you” for America, and to take a valuable opportunity that I have in education.
