This did not keep her from going after what she wanted and it made her push me, and my two siblings to graduate high school.
Yet whenever I’d tell someone that, their bright smiles would always falter slightly as the same variety of questions would spill from their lips. “So you want to write for a living?” “What kind of income would that bring?” “Wouldn’t you have to write a best seller to make any type of money?” Questions such as these are the reason I’ve always felt uneasy about telling people what I planned on studying in college, especially my grandpa. He said I should major in Business, like my mom. Or Medicine, like my aunt. Fields of study that actually could land me a decent paying job after college.
Every time I give an elevator pitch to potential investors, they always offer their money, but not their time. I’ve been given a couple offers that were quite grand, however I turned them down. I know what I’m looking for: experience and time and so far, none of them offered to invest in that manner, and I’ve stuck to my guns. Being shrewd is mandatory - something only touched upon in class. My business experience is the main proponent of pursuing a business degree rather than something else.
The first reason for why I want to be in National Junior Honor Society is because it just seems like it is exciting . You know helping the community and doing event that I don’t think that I would do or just ever go on my spare time . Plus it is also a chance to meet new people and make more friends .

Our whole lives our parents told us that we need to go to college to be successful. They told us that college would insure us a great life, but for many, that isn’t the case. Many students go to college hoping to get a degree, but many drop out due to insufficient funds. While for some, college might be the right choice, that doesn’t mean that college is for all of us. One of the reasons i believe that college isn’t worth it is because of student loans and debt.
Chandelar O. Chavis Psyc 210 December 2, 2015 MWF 10:00 Career Report Being an undergraduate fresh from high school many of us including myself come into college with several friends and a game plan. It is a sad, but naturally honest fact that those specific plans do not always work out. Many of us partake in different experiences introducing us to new environments along with new individuals. We begin our studies with the desired major, the major we intend on graduating with but get into the classes and have a change of heart.

“You’ve got a lot of street smarts, kid, but you need a college degree to succeed in business.” How many times have you been told this by prospective employers who shut the door in your face after learning you never attended, or didn’t fnish college? The stigma of lacking a college diploma could have dashed your dreams for a successful career—sending them straight out the door and into the trash bin. But wait, you’re intelligent, highly motivated, and you like to take risks! It’s not that college didn’t cross your mind; perhaps you didn’t have the funds, or maybe you just didn’t want to put your ideas on hold while you were sitting in a stuffy classroom for four years. So why should you be penalized?
It’s not with every college that one may come across opportunities such as those Westminster offers to its students. After visiting the school and attending a breakout session for the Honors Program, I knew that I had to apply. The program immediately appealed to me for multiple reasons, a couple of these being its challenging nature and uniqueness. In not many other places can students have sit-down conversations with guest speakers and get one-on-one attention from professors. In not many other programs would I have the opportunity to write a graduate level Honors Thesis my senior year.
Being elected Vice President at the end of my freshman year I never thought that I would end up in the position I find myself in today, Class President during my senior year.
