I am living proof that is not always the case. If you have a good support system and a strong to fight for what you believe in, you can achieve anything. I became a mother at 16 and I have loved every sleepless night and tantrum thrown by my beautiful little girl, and I am so thankful I have her. I love being a mother. My life feels as though it has purpose.
I decided I didn’t want to be homeless, struggling to live day by day, or dependent on anyone ever again to have a home or security. An education will allow me to surpass my family 's history and make them proud with my own personal
The way I was educated was to never give up will help me with my future patients. I have to be dedicated to them and be the light at the end of the tunnel for them. If I have given up all hope on their full recovery, how are they supposed to keep fighting for success? I have persistently fought for the place I am academically today, and I want to share the drive I have with my future patients on their road to recovery. I was never allowed to quit or give up no matter how high the hurdle was in my academic career.
My mother is my role model and my inspiration, she has set high standards for me and she expects me to reach them and i am going to try my best to reach and past them for her. I am keeping my grades up and mainting my accesible goals at the moment. As long as i can walk across the stage in 2018 with my head held high and my family cheering me on, there is nothing more in this world that i could wish for or want to be honest. My whole family motivates me to create bigger and longer goals. I want all my dreams and wishes for my future to come true so i could live my life knowing that my whole family can brag and be proud about
Another goal I have is to be a great leader/ role model for not only my family, underclassmen, but my community. Being a leader now will help me show my family, underclassmen, and community that I work hard and that things don’t come easy. I am always willing to help out and make a difference in my community. Having set goals makes me want to work harder, and also making me realize the road will be hard. But with the work ethics I have that I’ve learned throughout high school, and will continue to learn in college will help me accomplish these much easier.
My mother is the only hope I had to keep strong and escaped from all those expectations. In this world, money is everything. My mother worked alone to provide 4 of us a good education and health. It is our hardship in life. After we grown up, I am helping my mother assisting her finance problem by doing part time jobs in many places.
I am not proud of the suffering I caused my parents back then but that event had been the impetus behind my determination to succeed. Since that incident, I had lived the next thirty years of my life with a self-imposed pressure to succeed. It was my belief that since my parents had conceded I had to prove (especially to my mother) that I could still achieve the “American Dream” doing it my way, through a career in
I find my purpose in this world to empower women for the greater good of the country, just like my mother has empowered me. Although a world without poverty, world hunger, political corruption, economic disparities, inequality, and environmental issues is quite unrealistic and may be impossible to accomplish, it certainly cannot hurt to
By inspiring people like me, I mean letting them know that no matter where they come from they can always achieve their goals, and get to where they want to be. That with hard work, and dedication everything is possible. That no matter what rocks are put into their path, they can always get through them or look for another path. That in order to succeed one has to fail, that remaining humble while succeeding is better because it allows one to remain true to themselves and help more people. I consider this to be my major success because there are many people who give up to easily and if I am an example of a person who has endured similar hardships and inspired someone to keep going and not give up, I have changed their lives.
Growing up, my home life was complicated at best; I was the youngest of 3, by five years, and everyone but my father and myself suffered from drug addiction. It was a bleak situation, but it was manageable. It’s important to reach back in to my childhood years because they are what drive my ambitions today. The environment that I was raised in explains both my struggles in education as well as why I want a career in occupational therapy. My father was a type one diabetic and I was the only one available to help keep him healthy.
