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.
The main reason I am attending college, is to obtain my degree and start working in a profession that I enjoy and exceed in. I am looking forward to finally being in a place where I am happy to be. Where I feel I can contribute and be heard. To have a voice, and to have people really hear you is a great feeling. Even better when it helps others and helps you to feel better about yourself and what you are doing.

School School has always been my escape; it is a way for me to leave reality and be productive in something I am sure will one day change my life entirely. Graduating from high school was a step I was always afraid off, I was aware of college was around the corner and I was not sure how I would come up with the money to pursue my career in Marketing and Graphic Design. Financially, I had no help, whether it was from the college I decided to attend or from my parents. I concluded that the only way for me to attend higher education, was to pay out of pocket, as no matter how hard I attempted to search and apply for undocumented/DACA student scholarships, I was never awarded any. As a young child, I have enjoyed the idea of selling products
When Gerald Graff says “Until I entered college, I hated books and cared only for sports.” I can relate to him in many ways, not specifically speaking, but in relation to what he had to say as an author. I understand that people aren’t enticed by books until they learn about the power of knowledge. I for one, was such person who didn’t care to read much when I was younger until I reached my senior year of high school when I finally understood the meaning of being educated in all aspects. Education, to me is one of the most important things that a person can have; without an education you’re stuck at the lowest levels of society’s hierarchy. Most don’t care, because they’re programmed throughout their life by their peers and family not to express
During my time with the club I often met with Kiwanis (A organization of volunteers), soon I learned that Kiwanis created The Key club to give high school students an opportunity to serve their community. I also uncovered that The Georgia Institute of Technology also enjoys a Kiwanis club. In terms of service I believe that through community service, I may make a positive contribution to Georgia Tech upon arrival. I am very excited to join Kiwanis in college. I have always served locally, but I am exuberant to assist broader
My academic attitude, I believe, is important for a Resident Assistant to hold because as a RA, one should be a role model for the other members of the hall. While I do take my academics seriously, I also understand the value of communication and social stability while in college. I am very capable of delivering emotional support to any future residents that I may have. Due to my position on the Monmouth College Forensics Team, I, in no way would consider myself shy and have a very warm and outgoing personality that I feel would be able to help residents feel at ease. I value organization in my everyday life and I feel that my daily management skills would
As I was reading Out of the Dust, I found myself relating to the story. Billie Jo was desperate to get out of her small town, just like I was when I was growing up. I grew up in a small town just like Billie Jo and I wanted to escape from it. When I graduated from high school I was highly anticipating college. Although I would only be moving about 2 hours away, I was so excited for this new adventure because in my mind anywhere was better than Aberdeen, Idaho.
Community colleges and the American dream The American dream, is dreamt by many, but achieved by few. The road to prosperity and success is tough, but with hard work and dedication, the dream is soon to become reality. In many cases, people plant their seed in a community college close to home; where they’re able to stay with their family, while keeping the American dream alive. Personally, I believe Community colleges benefit in many ways like; saving you money, offering more time to decide your future and it allows your voice to be heard. In the article, “Bridges or Barriers”, the writer tells the readers that “Community colleges have a critical role to play in providing access to the American dream.” Community colleges do have a critical role in achieving the American dream, but in order to achieve success you’re going to have to want it.
