For this, I need to earn a doctorate degree. Besides, college will help me to meet new people, gain experience and skills to get a decent job. As a student, I expect my college to prepare me for all the obstacles that will come in the real world. A good education should not only be theoretical but also should be practical so that the students have a sense of what they are actually
The goals are that I must go to college, learn as much as I can, and do what I love to do for the rest of my life. In my mind, the difference between a job and a career is if I went to college. The outcome of going to college will bring me that much closer to obtaining a career. So yes, college is expensive. However, by working hard, being persistent, and striving for success, the cost will only be a miniscule problem because of the outcome.
I want to attend college to further my education, be a role model to others and to better the life I live today. Furthering my education is important to me, I am always eager to learn something new and implement it within my daily activities. Being the first generation in my family to attend college is an enormous accomplishment to my family and myself. I will be able to show my family that anything is possible with hard work and determination, and I will be able to be that role model to my niece that I never had growing up until I got to High School. I want to be successful in life and let my happiness portray as a way of giving thanks to the ones who guided me along the way my last four years and give back to my community one day.
The purpose of education goes a long way , for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. it is more than just basic knowledge and understanding. Martin Luther King Jr. believes education has a, “ Two-fold function to perform in the life of man and in society.” The two folds that make up the function are utility and culture. The purpose of education in a utility way is to take the degree you earn and use it to it’s full potential. Earning a degree in college is just the first step of a journey that will not only better you, but others that surround you as well. Evelyn Gonzalez a colleague of mine, just earned a degree in kinesiology.
Other than working with different people, college students will have to take action and responsibility on their own. For instance, they will have to wake up and be on time for their classes, get there work done and then have time for themselves. “You don’t have to be great to get started, but you have to get started to be great.“Les Brown. Finally, going to college is what you make it. You have to surround yourself with positive people and have a positive mindset you shouldn’t go just for the money, it’s a lot of opportunity in going to college.
My plan is to pass my knowledge onto the people I care for to better their quality of life. I chose this career path because I love working with people and positively impacting them. At college I will be earning a degree while learning how to adapt to life changes and bettering myself. After I earn my degree, my second goal is to raise a big happy family. By being financially stable with my own college degree, I will be
One reason that I want to be in Distinguished Scholars is because it will provide me with challenges greater than other classes might. When I face challenges, I face them head on and do not quit until I have conquered the task. I am ready for the rigor than I understand Distinguished Scholars provides and feel it will be a good fit for me. My brother, a current Distinguished Scholars student, tells me I will have opportunities through this program that will push me through real-life applications with technology. Also, I want to learn upperclassmen and appreciate the value in learning from those who have gone before me.
I want students to push themselves harder than they though possible, which has been modeled by my professors pushing me to do the same. Teachers are role models to show students that it is okay to not be perfect, but it is about trying to improve and persevere. George Fox has teachers that modeled and let me practice my own pedagogy, which will allow me to be a confident and effective educator. By finishing my education at George Fox I can show my students what it is like to set goals and finish them. I am a proud first generation college student and I want my students to know that they can do what ever they set their mind on.
I believe I deserve this scholarship because as a hard working individual, I will commit myself to effectively take advantage of the opportunity that the scholarship will provide me. As a child, I knew my goals and ambitions that I desired to achieve after my high school career. I wanted to strive to become successful in life and be able to help my family financially. I had my mind set on what I wanted to become and what I wanted to succeed in. As I further my education, my concentration is focused on achieving my ultimate goal of earning my Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance followed by my Master of Science in Finance.
As long as I can remember, I knew that college was going to be part of my future. That is because I always knew what my family expected out of me. College is not only important to me for the reason of making my parents proud, but for making sure that I create more out of myself, as well. With a higher education, I will have more job opportunities available, potentially be able to earn higher income, and obtain more useful life skills than somebody who does not have a college education. To begin, having a college education under my belt is important to me because I will have more opportunities for a job, after I complete my four years.
