Rather than growing up and getting everything handed to me, I had to work and earn things for myself. Especially with my education, I began to work as hard as I possibly could to earn grades that I was proud of. Also, I learned that I did not have to change to please anyone. That may sound cliche, but it is very true. I was, and still am bullied to this day about many
I am motivated and inspired to follow their pathway and do better, which is why I am always giving it my best to be successful. For example, my father was close to finishing school to become a doctor. My father did not have much money to finish school. My father inspired me to further my education and to have good health if I do. I do like helping and listening to others when they need to vent only because I know how it feels to be alone with nobody to pour your heart out.
Growing up I was always told that education is the key to success. My aunt continuously reminded me that in order to get my family out of poverty, I would have to go to college. A powerful lesson I learned from my experience is that persevering through adversity to obtained a higher education is rewarding in the future. This lesson helped me understand that higher education is the way out of poverty. At first I didn’t realize how important this lesson was until later on when I slowly realized the impact that having a college education tied to economic prosperity.
This interview gave me a new mindset because it showed me although things might be hard anyone can do it even while working and going to school. I also want to attend college to get more knowledge in the field I want to go in. I want to become an actress and I know going to college will teach me a lot. A lot of things influence me to want to go to college, one of the things is my friend Zion passing away and I know how much she wanted to go away so I wanna be able to accomplish that for her , also because I 've always wanted to get away from New York and wherever I decide to go to college is where I want to start my life. College Is important to me because if I don 't get to where I want with my acting career I know I 'm going to need a college degree to get a decent job.
I definitely think that going to college was a significant milestone in my life because I’m an only child and the first person in my family getting an education abroad. Looking back at freshman year of college, it’s been one seemingly endless roller coaster ride that’s taught me so much. For better and for worse, but more for the better, I see myself as an independent, more mature individual capable of making my own decisions. It was during this experience, where I met some of my best friends, lost friends, been broke, and felt home sick like never before. College helped me discover myself and it is then when I realized how weak I actually was.
I came from living in near poverty conditions to be able to attend college and have food, clothes and a home. With all my success, I know the conditions I lived in previously many people are still living in it today has overall made me be a better human being. It has made me want to be an advocate for change around the world and not just myself or my family. Although this can be difficult because a person can only carry so much weight on their back, its also important to acknowledge the role society, cultural and family has played in shaping who you are as an
Going for help is much better than trying to figure out for myself what i needed to work on. I know by setting a goal for myself and planning has also made me grow as a student. My reading and thinking isn 't much of a problem. But i still have a lot of weaknesses i need to focus on, such has actually trying to read an article or sometimes missing key ideas of what i’ve read. My
I have never lived in a place for more than two years (I have lived in nine different states), and the lack of stability has made developing close friendships impossible. I think that going to college would help me make close friends, which is something I have never gotten to experience. I am also extremely excited to be able to follow a curriculum and courses all the way through. Switching high schools all of the time meant switching curriculum, and having to learn new things at each school that did not build on what I previously had learned. I had to do a lot of catching up each time we moved, and it will be nice to not have to do that anymore.
In a world where lives are born and taken every second, I think back to my childhood and my earliest memory is my parents divorce, but there 's so much more to me than just that. Who I am and how I got here today is a collaboration of many more memories. My parents divorce, my siblings, friendships I’ve made and lost, achievements and failures, and my future goals and aspirations. Ultimately, all of this makes, and has made, me. It is a collection of influences, experiences, and memories that make up all of us, as individuals.
I would like to help people more than I do because that is one of my favorite things to do. By starting this journey going to school, I know whenever I get a job that within the job I will be helping many people which is another reason why I chose this to be my career path. I want to be even better for my family, I want to be able to give my family back what they have given me over the years while I was growing up. I want to become a better person all around and I know if I push myself to do this that I will be able to accomplish everything. I want to push myself to become a better student, not just
