And I knew that my brother Tewolde never would have given up. I knew that the way to honor him best was to take myself even higher” (113).

Also, my brother had talked to me about two months ago and had told me his experience with going to college to earn his English degree and me, being the competitive brother I am, didn’t want him to be the only sibling to earn a degree. Money was also a motivating factor because I wanted to have a career that could pay well and secure my retirement that way I can build a family. From past experience working with investors I noticed that the majority of them are vehement about saving money and most of them had a college education. Lastly, the strongest motivating factor was my future career and interests. I have always enjoyed being a manager
Despite how “The Voice” comes across to some of the faculty, Owen is simply trying to make a difference at the school and give the students a voice: “The Voice was our voice; he championed our causes; he made us proud of ourselves in the atmosphere that belittled and intimidated us,” (290). I believe he cares deeply about his friends and is loyal to them. Even though Owen is smart enough to skip a grade, he volunteers to repeat a grade in order to stay with John: “WHAT ARE FRIENDS FOR? I’LL NEVER LEAVE YOU,” (267). Owen is extremely demanding.
“You are something special, Joey. You will make a difference!” That is what my grandfather has said to me since I was in elementary school. He always believed in me, encouraged me, and supported me. My Pawpaw Duke is a planner, a goal setter, a provider, and a teacher. He almost died last spring and I realized how much he continues to influence people, especially me.
Motherhood for me was a life changing experience. I’m raising my son teaching what life is all about. I’m attending Pierce College and starting my life all over to continue my education in the medical field. I want to set an example for his
One of my future goals and the most important one is to become a doctor. It is my life dream, and the only thing I am seeking for. Doctor is someone capable to save and help others life in ways that are not possible in other careers. Being a doctor for me is not just like any job, it is achieving a dream I have since I was 6 years old. One of the main reasons I picked this major is my family; my family members are almost all doctors, and my dad too.
I am interested in Howard University because it is an HBCU that encompass the themes of cultural diversity and education. Your commitment to scholars ensures me that at your school I will be right at home. Since I intend on on going down a medical path, I know that Howard University will provide me with best resources to follow my dreams. As a child I was always interested in the worlds around me and how things worked. As a result I participated in a Summer Enrichment Program located at Indiana University in Bloomington.
A hero is a man of distinguished courage and ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities. Dr. Segun Williams (my greatest instructor) gave me proof that life is sometimes like a war, and I have to improve my soul and my character in my science class. Moreover, he stressed further that to be a scientist needed extra study and required one hundred percent concentration. Dr. Williams is a strong leader, honest father, and a man of moral principles. He dedicated his life to develop the future of youth and less privileged by giving his time, money and property to accommodate the need of such students.
When I help those that cannot help themselves, I am buoyed by a sense of purpose unmatched in my other life pursuits. Becoming a PA is challenging and rewarding and will allow me to work both independently and as part of a team. Although the path ahead will be demanding and challenging, I relish those opportunities because I have become intimate with the profession, undertaken a rigorous academic set of courses and witnessed first-hand how a word can change a life. I think about my grandpa who has recently been diagnosed with congestive heart failure, and I wonder will there be anyone in the medical field who will be able to spend their time with him, to listen to his stories of his grandkids, to tell him a joke and make him laugh? The answer is yes.
My dad, who is a single-father, has played a vital role in who I am. He has showed me that not everyone will be accepting of what I do and what plans I have, but no matter what, if it results in my happiness, then my plans must continue. Although my parents are divorced, both parents have impacted the way I see education, and I want to show my gratitude by graduating high school as an honor student and going to Arkansas Tech University. I’ve now realized that I am blessed with the teachers and the schools that I have at my disposal, and the fact that I have the blessing to be born in a country that allows me to get an education where I’m not going to be told “no”. I have discovered a love for math and fictional writing, and slowly have been gaining more confidence in who I am and am now a part of the National Honor Society, participated in state French competition, where I have placed 1st and 3rd in different events, and am President of the Hispanic Heritage
