To the Younger Generation, oh how I wish there was an easy way to get through this thing they call high school. To be honest, I would search for that every day of my life as I go through high school and I can say that there is no easy way. High school is a necessary evil that is different for every single person that attends. It is fun and then it is not want you would like at all. As you venture through it you will soon realize these things and this is my way of telling you how to best go through it with the most ease.
I then found out that not knowing and being undecided was perfectly okay and I was ready to begin my freshman year at Saint Petersburg College. Talking about graduating high school always seemed unrealistic because it was such a huge goal. After graduation, I had never felt so proud of myself. I had just completed
Never would they have imagined going to school let alone attending college but because of them I was able to attend school, graduate high school, and attend college. Because of them I had the amazing opportunity to be born in one of the greatest countries in the world and study to become anything or anyone I wanted to be. Because of them and with the help of the Clark Construction Field Scholarship I am able to pursue a degree in Special Elementary education with a minor in Human services and speech pathology and audiology. Without being awarded the scholarship for the past two years my parents and I wouldn’t be able to afford tuition and I wouldn 't be able to pursue a degree. I am not sure what the future may hold for me but I do know that if I am awarded the scholarship again I will be able to continue my pursue a degree so I can accomplish all my dreams and give back to my parents at least half of what they gave
They all tell me to make goals, and go for them. Go through this life with no regrets. So here I am applying to Temple University. When I finished high school I was too anxious to apply to college, so I never did. I was too scared to get rejected so I rejected myself.
Most parents stress that important it's getting into college after high school because degrees look good on your résumé, and it can get you further in your career. School isn’t for everyone though school is claimed to be a necessity to being “successful” most young adults can do without. Here’s to show you can have a “successful” life right after high school without college; the options students have during high school, less spending money and more making money, starting your career sooner.
You have to try your best and work hard if you want to make it out of high school in 4 years or earlier. You don’t want to stay in high school longer than your supposed too. I thought myself thought high school was like middle school, I slacked off and didn 't study, but there were consequences. I failed a class and now I have to retake it next year. I know now that I will study and work hard for every class.
School School has always been my escape; it is a way for me to leave reality and be productive in something I am sure will one day change my life entirely. Graduating from high school was a step I was always afraid off, I was aware of college was around the corner and I was not sure how I would come up with the money to pursue my career in Marketing and Graphic Design. Financially, I had no help, whether it was from the college I decided to attend or from my parents. I concluded that the only way for me to attend higher education, was to pay out of pocket, as no matter how hard I attempted to search and apply for undocumented/DACA student scholarships, I was never awarded any. As a young child, I have enjoyed the idea of selling products
For the past three years I have dedicated myself to my education, making sure to attend every lecture regardless of the weather, my health, or my ever growing exhaustion level. I have become consumed with the concept of success, and failure is just not an option. Although things have not always been this way for me personally. I am passionate about school because I discovered social work, a blessing in disguise. My first semester of college I enrolled in a community college with my major listed as “General studies” because it sounds better than “Undecided.” I was straight out of a high school of less than 400 students and I was utterly clueless, and at the end of the semester my GPA reflected it.
Growing up, people would always ask "what do you want to be when you grow up?" flash-forward to senior year of high school where the most common question asked became “where are you going to college?” Time was flying by and although I had a pretty good idea on where I wanted to attend in the fall, when I was accepted to all of my top choices, the decision became a challenge. Strangely enough Xavier University of Louisiana was the last school I applied to. It was nowhere on my radar until I did my research. I remember being on the phone with my sister reading her information from their website.
The reason for this is people fail to realize that high school is way different than college. It is very important for a student to have an open mind for the drastic change their about to encounter in the next four years of their lives. They are both different levels of education that are expanding a student’s knowledge to fulfill their career path for their dream job. Although, there are both similar to one another that involve teaching students to learn both have many differences between each other, I prefer college more than high school based on my experiences.
