The moment I found out I was moving away from my hometown felt like a nightmare. Various thoughts suddenly came rushing through my mind as I thought about how my life was going to change forever. When there were new students in my class, I used to wonder how hard it was for them to completely leave everything behind and move. I never knew that I would eventually be in their position. I was eleven years old and in my last year of elementary school when I found out about my parents decision to move.

Since I was young I thought that I was convinced about what I wanted to do, but I became aware that what I wanted was a bit unrealistic and as I heard my friends talk about their future with such confidence l felt uncertain about mine.
Ever student looks forward to graduation. Senior year is the year most students start planning for their future. Most students senior year is the busiest year they have had since they started high school.

After graduating high school, the majority of teenagers nowadays choose to continue their studies in college to attain a bachelor’s degree. There is no question that education is essential for our future careers. Unfortunately, I have noticed that not all students in my peer group are able to finish college. “Nearly one out every five students in America drop out of college by the first semester.” There are three main reasons for teenagers dropping out, them being: financial issues, academic struggles, and another simply being to start a career.

My most significant endeavor since attending community college would be helping my community to receive an Adult Daycare. Thought this endeavorer I have applied my knowledge that I have learned about the disease to educate others in my community who may not have to know the impact of it. I have also used and sought the aid of my relationship that I have built by being at my community college.
