What sparked my interest in the environment, and nature in general was getting lost while on a family hike when I was seven. While my parents consider it a horrible family memory, I found enjoyment in spending time in the calmness of the wilderness around me. When I came to college it was almost inevitable that I would study environmental science, but I was too intrigued by all aspects of science to know what I truly had a passion for. This quickly changed during a lab my first semester of college. For the lab we were sent out to record the amount the types of trees in forested parts of campus.
I never really took school seriously, I never even dreamt of being a college student, I wasn’t motivated. That was until, I saw that my parents were struggling financially and then filed for a divorce. Every time things got hard, both my mom and dad would tell me to “Focus, take school serious so that you can be successful and help us in the future”. Those words were my call to adventure. That was my motivation, that made me graduate high school and enroll myself at College of Saint Elizabeth.
And then, I took my first biology course my freshman year of high school, and that changed my plans drastically. Throughout high school, I didn’t think about college, or where to go until my junior year. That being said, I saw my GPA and told myself it was time to get my act together. My sophomore year of high school is really when I decided I wanted to go into therapy and human services. I had my mind set on Wayne State until things got worse at home and I
The great positive impact on specific artists chosen within this piece of writing meant that they were affected in art and had to change their ways and perspectives of visual art. The way that artists used techniques to produce a painting such as cropping and blurring ended up spreading around the art world and was taken into consideration by other artists who were amazed by this influence. The artists as well had to incorporate two different medias in one way or another. The overall idea of the invention of photography and development of painting is that photography dramatically changed the way that painters used their ideas and how the outcome of their pieces came out. They had a lot of different ideas that impacted other artists and became a new direction for them and their career.
This was when I started learning about university and what exactly it was. I started admiring persons who had the opportunity to attend or currently pursuing. My new task was to look at what I was good at and what schools I would like to attend. The thought of going out of the county was also one of the main reasons I was fascinated at the thought of going to university. Seeing other cultures and meeting new people was a dream of a child my age.
I mainly became a college student because my father had the resources for me to be able to apply with some scholarships. Without that, I'm not sure I would be here, because my family is very against student loans. My mom really pushed me to go to college as well, but I too have the interest in getting my first degree. My mother, father, and two older sisters have all had some college education. I'm not sure if this influenced me in anyway, besides one of my older sisters having trouble finishing her online courses.
They had to work hard to put my brother and me through college but they imbibed the value of knowledge in us from a young age. I took up engineering as a career due to my innate interest but I was the first in my family to attend a univeristy with diversified community or to choose chemical engineering. So, transition into university was one the hardest things I had to do. I could overcome this and turn things around thanks to the support from faculty, friends and mentors I met later
I believe in the above quote and started my career with an optimistic approach. It is with fondness that I remember my childhood days when I stood fascinated about playing games in computer, my family being drenched with computer science engineers. I always kept myself involved in the discussions of my family members regarding their experiences at work in their company. Egged on by my parents and teachers from my childhood and my innate predilection for science and technology, a Computer Science Engineering Degree was the logical career choice. I firmly looked for the greatest stuff which encourages me to lay the foundation during my undergraduate course period.
When the university lost my files, I was forced to leave Springfield and go back home. I lost a semester because I decided to work. I told others I was not going back to school for a semester because I had financial problems, and I was going to work to save money. However, I would tell myself that going to a university was not in my destiny. I had no one to help me when things got hard, and I did what I saw growing up.
