I plan to take my high school ability, use them in college to become successful in my career and live the life I dream of. In high school, I plan to be as successful as possible to make college easier. My first goal is one of the most difficult, but one of the most rewarding, being having a 4.0 GPA for a quarter. I have always came close to having a 4.0, but I always am off by one grade. Another goal of mine is to take college classes in school and to be proficient in the classes I take.
Its always been a dream to go and to study out of my home country for various reasons like to be a part of and experience a new culture , to learn to live away from home , meet new people from another part of the world and also to learn to become self dependent. Now that I have been given the chance I plan to take full advantage of this opportunity by applying and hopefully getting accepted into a reputable university as yours , which will also be a stepping stone for my future. My father has a business of his own , and he is doing quite well , a lot of “well wishers” have told me to get into the family business , but I cannot do what I am not interested in , my father accepts that and he has been pushing to go out to experience and to study
I want to make my parents proud of me. So far I have been achieving a 2.0 average which is alright for now. Absolutely want to push myself to try harder than that. Knowing that on day I could have a 4.0 or higher which is my resolution. Everyone wants to be able to graduate high school and go to a four year college.
According to the Web site collegeresults.org, only 23.6 % of the students attending Old Dominion University are graduating in four years. This rate of graduation is demoralizing because I have a plan to succeed and graduate from ODU. From these results, I understand that I have to work hard and take my studies very seriously in each subject of every semester. Because a college education offers many benefits, I will be a successful student by obtaining expert advice, by developing effective strategies, and by overcoming my challenges. Psychology Professor Robert S. Feldman explains the benefits of a college education in my ENF textbook (29-31).
This may seem like a low class rank, but the top three or four in my class have higher than a 4.0. Regardless of my place in my class it does not change the effort that I have put in; it does not change my determination to achieve my dream of becoming an educator. In no particular order, I applied to Indiana University, Indiana State University, Butler University, Vincennes University, and Ball State university. I was accepted to all five of my schools. After a long period of deliberation, I decided I wanted to go to Indiana University because it is one of the best schools in the nation.
After a while it turned out that my dreams and plans for the future were not that impossible. Thanks to my hard work for three years of high school and one of the best scores in the school I was admitted to two schools that I was dreaming about. I loved that feeling of finally finding my own path and have the possibility to choose between two majors that were my hobbies for so long. But a while later my world flipped upside down. My family was a winner of a green card lottery.
The biggest one is the time problem. Being only 1 year and a few months from graduating high school, there are a lot of things going on in my life, so being able to take some of my very limited free time to read is a hard thing to do. However, I see it as a necessary sacrifice to increase my chances of getting into a good college and becoming a great professional, because learning is a direct consequence of reading about something. Another goal related to my future is becoming more involved in the lives of the people around me. What I mean by this is that getting close to others is a great way of becoming more understanding of someone’s point of view and sympathizing with their situation.
It was not usual to select country in South America as a destination for Thai students, yet, in that time, I fully believed that this dissimilarity would broaden my world and be beneficial for my future business advantage . Even though I skipped one year of high school spending my time abroad during the most crucial time in Thai high schoolers’ life preparing for college admission , I could achieve my goal and got accepted to the best engineering school in Thailand at the same time of my classmate. I must attribute this success to my early clear goal, strategic study plan and determination. I have received a Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Thailand’s prestigious university , Chulalongkorn with GPA of 3.56, graduating in top 5% of the class. My engineering degree has given me not only the
I want the security of knowing that when I graduate with a graduate’s degree that I will have a job out there. Being able to pay my debt back from all the hard work I’m going to go through is going to give me the confidence to work even harder in the future. I would be the first out of my one sibling to graduate from college. I want to make my parents and brother proud. They didn’t have the same opportunities as me and I want to take advantage of this privilege.
My plan consists of staying focused on not only me but my future. When people are juniors in high school you think more about yourself when really we should all be thinking about our future. Sure people think by thinking about themselves it means their future when quite frankly it does not mean thinking about your future. When people think about their future they are supposed to think of what they want, Kids, husband/wife , pets, home, devices etc. If you want a lot of things in life you have to try hard and go to college and make good money to be able to provide for everyone and every want and need.
