I got home with a idea for me and my mom to go through with which was visting Gateway Community College which has both Radiology and Sonography Associate's programs. " Well this college looks pretty neat, not to many people and plenty of good looking people" "Don't worry about the people worry about getting info on your career" Says mom.

But it wasn’t too late for Lydia. Marilyn would not be like her own mother shunting her daughter toward husband and house, a life spent safely behind a deadbolt.” (Ng 147) Ever since Marilyn traveled to her mother’s house, she realized that she had to promote her daughter’s education in order to allow her to become a doctor.

Some words that people tell you are forgotten in an instant. Some words stick with you forever! I can still hear my mother telling me “Self-improvement is impossible without self-reflection”, to teach me a lesson of self-accountability. I remind myself of it daily to help me understand why I am where I am in life, and how to get where I want to be in life. Reflecting on how I have gotten where I am, I remembered a first-year undergraduate version of myself.
She knew that when she grew up she didn’t just want to settle down and marry right away like other people she watched. Esperanza should not forget the things she learned and what helped her to learn them. “I am too strong for her to keep me here forever… They will not know I have gone away to come back” (110, Mango Says Goodbye Sometimes). This quote shows how Esperanza is finally learning that she has to come back to Mango Street at some point. Esperanza realized Mango Street made her stronger.

Another thing that is difficult and for me gets in the way of school is having a job. Some days are harder than others but I still do not let anything get in the way of my education. My post-secondary goals after high school are to become a Registered Nurse which I have wanted to be ever since I was a little kid.
I then called and went forward with going back to school; just by looking at my kids I thought so much how it would be better if I had my career to make life easier for them. Just by taking that little step will do a big different I felt like I finally found the school I was looking for, never would of thought about a Christian college to further my education. Through this whole experience I knew that giving that first step it will fulfill my future and be the mother that I fought to have the thing to give to my
My Dream to Serve Ever since I was little, I have always admired people who served our country. I still remember all of the stories that my mother would tell about her career in the military. I didn’t understand it as much as I do now, but I was still admired at what she would tell. During my middle school years, I would occasionally read books and articles about the military, and what they would do during their everyday lives. It would make me feel like I had a purpose in life, and it would make me feel better about myself, and that is when I decided to have a dream about going into the Air Force.
With me she wanted more to provide. I meant so much to her. All this affected my Present life because I've ended up not knowing a lot about my mom. I had to get to know her when she left the military. Me living with my grandparents all my life changed me.
This was a substantial lesson for me. During the years of my mom 's progressive drinking, I learned to take the initiative to solve most problems independently I could not depend on her. The night my mother hit rock bottom was the night my whole family knew a change absolutely needed to happen. Now, my mom and I are both receiving help, and I realized that even though I wanted to fix this independently sometimes it is necessary to receive assistance from
In our nightly conversations, I would watch as her eyes filled with pride when I would tell her about my schoolwork. She believed in me, but she reserved none of that optimism for herself. She was apathetic about her life and unhappy with the constraints that came with her illness. Upon realizing this, I knew that what I had learned in the Durnibar Foundation would be able to change my aunt’s life.
