My proudest accomplishment would be being college bound. Being college bound delineates how far I've progressed in life and how much I've achieved. Taking my background into consideration, I've accomplished so much more than i would ever have predicted, and I have proved so many people wrong. Throughout life, my intelligence was often questioned and i was frequently told by my family and peers that I wouldn't accomplish anything of great substance and that my dreams are futile. Nevertheless, I never let their spiteful words bring me down or sway my focus and i continued working hard so one day I can repay my mom for all she did for me.
At first, I thought this career would not be suited for me because I did not think it matched my personality very well since I am more of an introvert. However, I also believe I should not doubt my abilities and just take the power away from my anxiety who says I can not. I will merely just do my best to learn and be the best I can be. If you never fight through challenges you will never grow. I like the idea of case management because families who have a child with a disability need as much help as they can get.

He was spending money we didn’t have, never home and always suspicious of what I was doing. He made me leave work one day due to having a psychotic episode resulting from mixing alcohol and other substances. I put my foot down and told him he had to stop or leave.

My first day in school was horrible. I didn’t know anyone and I knew very little english, words like “may I use the bathroom, Hi, yes, no,and thank you”. The only person that talked to me the first day was the teacher I did not end up not making friends. I cried for 2 months when we first moved here I hated everything I missed my old house, my friends and my school. I was mad at my mom for making us move here and my dad for moving here in the first place.I realize now why they moved us here.

It was misconception, however, because attending this school would bring even more than those I had before. My parents could never be able to afford this school for me, but that didn 't stop me from desiring to live in a place where I knew, opportunities were around every corner and I was right. My University has been so generous since the day I stepped foot on campus and has provided me the support I need to be successful. My responsibilities are still in tact, I 'm working hard to stay in good academic standing, balancing work and organizations, and helping out at home the best I can from hours away. The doors that have opened since I decided to attend Texas A&M are those which I would have never came into contact with if I had failed to believe in myself as well as the Aggies who were immediate to congratulate me when I did.I stepped onto this campus with aspirations of being a Nurse one day, with dreams of nurturing those in need of my assistance whenever needed, in clinics and hospitals.
