College costs a lot of money. The chance of being unsuccessful after college is low but still there. Even with these facts, college is worth it for me. In my mind, college isn 't even an option. The goals are that I must go to college, learn as much as I can, and do what I love to do for the rest of my life.
Mr.Prokes understood me. He knew what i wanted to do with my life, when I wanted to do it and how I was gonna do it. I never would 've thought that I would leave him the first year I met him. All though, he emailed my mother saying: "Dear Jeri Johnson, Your son this year had a rough year. Myself and Mr.Pargaen tried to make it better, but this class needs serious help.
I deserve this scholarship because of the ways in which this scholarship will enable me to continue and better my life-long goal to become a pediatric nurse. I plan to attend the college of my dreams, Texas Woman’s University. Before attending, I will need to receive money to keep me on the right track, but I have financial issues. I have two brothers already in college and I am the last and only one left. Because I have two brothers in college, it means less money for me.
Going back to school has always been on my mind but never a priority. I allowed other life distractions to interfere. After what seems like years of trying to find my identity and motivation, I have finally decided to go back to school to better not only my life but my daughter’s as well. Being a single mother of one, I want my daughter to see that not only your skill set, but a college degree is a great way to start your career and meet the expectations you set for yourself. The expectations I have for myself are finishing my Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management and eventually finishing with my MBA in Human Resources.
My father has recently become unemployed, and my mother is still recovering from surgery as I write this essay and is also unable to work. I know my parents support my decision to study abroad, but they must prioritize the day-to-day needs of my siblings and their medical bills, and as such they cannot possibly afford to aid me financially. Unfortunately, I have continued to put off participation in international education because of financial hardship. I distinctly remember during the fall of my freshman year of college not being able to afford a one-week international exchange program. I felt devastated as I wrote an email to the program director saying that I wanted nothing more than to participate but I did not have the monetary means to finance my voyage.

Why do you want to go to college? Ironically, this question was first asked of me by my parents. This was a long time ago and the world was a different place. My answer was that learning is never wasted and it made me feel alive. Since the cost was exorbitant, and financial aid packages didn 't exits, it simply wasn 't a viable option.
When I originally came to Eckerd College, I was super excited and nervous about leaving home and coming to new area. Also, I was super nervous about not knowing my major. I was in between a couple of majors and couldn’t decide because everything interested me. I also was super nervous about not being able to make a 4 year plan once I did pick a major. But once I got here my peer mentors guided me and helped calm me down when I picked my first classes.
Often I hear the phrases “this state sucks or I can 't wait to move” but many don 't know exactly where they want to go. As for me when asked if I could live anywhere, Texas came across my mind instantly . My first time visiting Texas, I hope some day I could possibly live there. Seeing all my family is what I found most enjoyable about being there. Here in New Jersey, it 's just my dad, sister and me, so it gets pretty boring.
My parents cannot speak English, and they are almost sixty years old which make it even harder for them to find a job in California. But they are still trying and doing everything they can to support me. Fortunately, American is so generous to give me an opportunity to have a great education even when I cannot afford it. Every day, I tell myself to try harder to have good grade in class to pay back for my parents’ effort, to say “Thank you” for America, and to take a valuable opportunity that I have in education. However, it is not as easy as I thought.

I am scheduled to graduate May of 2018 from Stark State College with an associate’s degree in nursing. I plan to continue my education and work on my bachelor degree in nursing, while working as an RN.
I felt under a huge pressure because my parents wanted me to make all A 's and I felt like I owe this to them because the only reason we moved here was for my brother and I to have the opportunity to study in this country and become successful doctors and make our future bright. My parents had to give up a lot for us to have this opportunity; they had to give up on their jobs in Iran while they studied more than twenty years be what they always wanted to be, they had to give up on their own parents and deal with being away from them, and they had to give up on their social standing just for us to become successful, and for this reason I could not let them down. I spent hours and hours and hours studying. To be honest, I was slowly starting to get used to my situation and surprisingly, after my second year in the US, I was starting to like my new
That way, if I need help or something happens, my family is able to come to my aid. Determining where to go to college is a hard and stressful time, but with the knowledge of the colleges it can help make the decision easier. Growing up, my mother always begged me to go to Indiana University Southeast (IUS) and live at home. Being a teenager, I shot that idea down
Not only that, I enjoy managing to do certain task and duties on my own, because I enjoy the after feeling of success and the opportunity to help others after. Taking school for granted will never cross my mind, I will continue to make it the centerpiece of my life, until I now I have reached the peak of my career. If I believe that is not enough, I will continue to be ambitious about education and will not settle until I am content with my place in life. Throughout the help of scholarships I know I will be the successful and dedicated student in school to complete my degrees and start my
