It was those accomplishments that got me scholarship money and acceptance into some pretty good schools across the country. I wasn’t able to attend the colleges of my choices due to my parents financial situation at the time. You can only imagine how disappointed I was. I had become so accustomed to being that “smart girl” that was going to do well in life. I wanted to keep going, and I hated taking breaks.
They have always shown me how hard life is without an education. They push me to work harder and harder. Sometimes I feel like I'm not doing good enough because I never get recognition for all the good I am doing. I am the first of this family to graduate high school and I will be the first to have a college degree. I have my parents to thank for this.
What is my purpose? Since I was a child I was always changing what I wanted to be when I grow up, but now I have everything more clear, I remember since I was a first grader I promise to my uncle and to myself that I will finish college.

“It’s easy, you’re not even trying your best“ is what my dad told me after trying to spell Pulchritude for the 7th time. Each time all that came out my mouth was “ p – u – l – c – r “ before he could say wrong in an instant. I had a whole 3 months to study, yet I chose to do everything else but that. There’s not even any way that I can back out of the competition. I’ve asked the question why, but all I kept being told was that it is mandatory.
• If I became a boss to my own internet café, I may have freedom with regards to my time; still it requires more work and longer hours than being an employee; which mean less time for personal pleasure and activity. • It can be scary to be completely responsible for the success (or failure) of my business since everything is unpredictable and too risky. Though I’m still optimistic, I might decide to push with my plan IF: • I already have enough savings. Return of investment might be critical and need to prepare for any expenses in the next one to two years from the day I start my business. Though I believe that I may earn more than what I currently have if I start my plan.
My older brother did graduate high school but didn’t take the measures to attend a university or community college. As of today I continue to tell myself “A first generation doesn’t have to mean that you 're always the first” not knowing much about my relatives and grandparents I’d expect all the help from my older brother, but with what I have learned from the help he has provided I didn’t know where else to go. Graduating middle school opened up my vision to do more in the future and surpass what my brother didn’t do, but it also put pressure on me to show my younger siblings how important education can be. My first year in high school was as regular as any freshman should be having, during this year I planned my goals and future classes to finish my A-G requirements that are needed to attend a four/ two-year university. AVID which is a college prep class showed me that there 's more than receiving a diploma such as an ACT and SAT to have
I was hesitated to do anything because I used to think the more I can do the more I had to do. I learnt in school just because I had to learn, no objectives to achieve, no favorite hobbies to do. After graduating from high school, I would go to a university then I would study hard and get a good job. That’s all. But every changed when I went to Ho Chi Minh City to study, it didn’t turn out as I intended.
I don't know how this popped in my head. I thought of delivering a persuasive speech regarding my issue, but i had a another big issue facing me, i was never good at writing. My English teacher have always loved the way i think. He started teaching me since grade 2 and since then, up to the sixth grade he continued teaching me and pushing my self confidence to the maximum limit. I always saw him my second father my eldest brother since i didn’t have one.
As soon as I started my freshman year of high school, I began worrying about where I would go to college and what kind of grades I would need to get there. I attended a small but rigorous private school which made the pressure even worse. For a long time, I had medical issues that I constantly feared would get in my way the rest of my life. Almost nothing worked out the way I thought it had to in order prosper and be happy in the future. Nevertheless, everything turned out okay in the end.
