A lack of money is problematic for college students with tuition to pay, and even more so for college students that have to support their children or family and pay tuition at the same time. “When my financial aid came, I often had to lie and say I had no money. If I had given them the financial aid granted to me for my educational expenses, I would have had gas to get to school or money to buy books” (Beegle 142). Donna chose to pay for college instead of family. Her hardships relates to college students that have to provide children or family, leaving them with a deficit of money to pay for college.
My family is still not financially secure and never saved any money to put towards my college education. Neither my mother, father, or stepmother are willing, nor able, to contribute to my college education at all. Unfortunately, I will be paying for college by myself. However, I am very grateful that the University of Tulsa has generously awarded enough money in scholarships to cover my tuition, but I am lacking funds to cover room and board. I am working hard to achieve my goal of moving out of my household to be in a stress-free environment for my four years of college.
“Research suggests that additional education improves overall wellbeing” (210). My life has benefitted from going to college and has been shown through this first semester that I have been out of high school. When I first came to college, I didn’t feel like I was pressured into being here. This choice was solely my idea, because I knew that I didn’t possess the skills I needed to succeed in the real world. Getting my bachelor’s degree and going the extra step to get my master’s degree was always my plan.
Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to be successful in life. I have always wanted to be the better version of my parents and achieve many things in life. During my freshman year in High school, I knew I was going to major in business. I come from a household of five, my father, mother, two younger sisters, and myself. I am the first in my family to go to college and with that being said, I have always felt the pressure to be the best role model and example for my younger sisters.
I plan to take my high school ability, use them in college to become successful in my career and live the life I dream of. In high school, I plan to be as successful as possible to make college easier. My first goal is one of the most difficult, but one of the most rewarding, being having a 4.0 GPA for a quarter. I have always came close to having a 4.0, but I always am off by one grade. Another goal of mine is to take college classes in school and to be proficient in the classes I take.
Education is the ultimate key to success. My grandma has always told me that getting a college education will provide one with endless opportunities. She has been the one that influenced me to succeed, pursue a higher education, and overall become a better person. She has taught me so many valuable lessons and till this day I still cherish them everyday. My grandma came to the United States with only the clothes that she had on her back.
My short term goals would be to successfully complete the required 96 hours that the school requests we do by volunteering to the community. By volunteering it adds towards the leadership requirements, which would also be one of my short term goals of becoming a leader in Marist Brothers Linmeyer. By achieving these short term goals it will then enable me to manage and dedicate my time for others needs. My short term objectives would have to would be; signing up or participating in 24 hours of community service during the course of this year which I preferably would complete during the holidays when I know I will be able to manage my time correctly. 2.
My dream as a person in the life is to be successful against all odds. the surest way to be successful in this life is by going to college and earning a good degree. By being successful I mean having a job that offers stability for my family, good healthcare provision, job security and retirement plan which serves as an investment in my future. I consider it the surest way because there are no risks involved in terms of time and money spent. Unlike other careers such as being a recording artiste, professional soccer player and so much more the risk involved is high because 4 years could be spent without any tangible progress made.
I had always been a scholar from secondary education to undergraduate years due to these circumstances. I received the ‘Student Assistant Scholarship’ in my university which made me work 24-hours per week from Monday to Saturdays while maintaining excellent grades as a full-time student. My financial difficulties have encouraged me to alleviate poverty by being extensively involved in the development and humanitarian work during my summer breaks and free time. I contributed to development work by volunteering in Acts of Hope
