After high school I made a choice to not to attend college. Being young and not having any idea which career path I wanted to go down definitely influenced that decision. Fortunately, for the eight years I have been out of high school I have been able to land great jobs, that have kept me amused but not at my full potential. I believe that there comes a time in some people’s lives where there is a need for substantial growth, and that I have reached that point. Going back to school to get my education is the first step in reaching my greatest potential and bettering my future.
With time, I started liking this new place and did not even want to go home. As I continued growing up, I loved the school environment more and more. I saw the school setting to a whole new level. It was not just a place to socialize, but to get education and skills that would help me later on in life. On reaching third grade, I became familiar with the education levels and how one would graduate from one level.
Considering the fact that it is a true story, the story touches base with my levels of motivation, emotion, and seeing my true potential. Outcasts United has made me realize how blessed I am to have the opportunity to attend college, and thankfully I have found a way to pay for it. I did not come from out of the country because my home was at war. I did not have to face the types of intense struggles that the refugees did. The fact that I was given such a great opportunity, will motivate me to academically perform to the best of my ability.
Is earning a college degree worth the debt that you might incur? I recognize myself as incredibly blessed with the opportunity that I have regarding payments required with college. All the expenses of my time at college, not including books, will be settled for by my Father, and for this I am truly grateful. Nevertheless, I began to contemplate the other high schoolers who do not have this opportunity like I do.
The Honors College would provide many opportunities for the expansion of my education and global perspectives. I would take advantage of all the opportunities granted, and broaden my education as much as possible. Getting involved in the ECU community and making college not only an academic experience but a life experience is what makes me most excited and most hopeful to be part of the Honors
I applied for qualifying English course at Kwantlen to have an academic element in my life which would motivate me to never give up. I have learned to give priority to my education by not allowing any circumstances to impact my career. Furthermore, I decided to join gym in order to feel self-motivated. I also started to apply for jobs and after a couple of months, I got a job at Winners in Richmond.
Why College Education is Important to Me By Kayte Forrester I made it a goal for myself to be the first in my family to attend college. After a really bad day at work as a CNA, I finally just signed up and said I’m going to do better for myself. I want a career that has a steady future, something that is financially secure, but most important having a college degree is going to give me a big leap in self-esteem. Getting a college education is going to open a whole new world of opportunities for me.
Adults have always told me if you want to be successful, become a doctor or a lawyer. Do something that makes money, then you will be happy. This advice steered me away from my dream, and I lost sight of my goals. Being a first generation college student, my parents have always feared for me and encouraged my career choice to be one of job safety, something they never had. They told me to do something easy, and high-paying; they figured I’d always be happy that way.
My educational goal is to be able to graduate high school with honors and hopefully getting into my dream college. This educational goal of mine is very important to me because it not only lets me know how hard I have been working, but it also keeps me focused in school so I can obtain this goal that I want. My personal goal is to be able to get to a point in my life where I can be financially stable being able to take care of me and my family. I always looked into the future seeing myself as very wealthy and being able to do things with my family without struggle and I made it my goal to strive for this by putting in the time and work in school. My professional goal is being able to become a doctor and take care of people that are in need of help.
Since this time in life, I made it a goal to help not only my family but others in need out too. For I know what it is like to have absolutely nothing. In order for myself to achieve this goal in life, I would love to continue my education and graduate from college to get a great job. I know it would take a lot of studying, but I know that it will all pay off in the end. I want to be able to make a change in this world; even if it means starting off with something small.
As a result of being dedicated to my job, I got promoted to Assistant Manager. Realizing working hard can accomplish anything, I gained confidence in myself. As time went on working at my profession, my goals on school were forgotten. Envisioning more for my future, I decided to go after my dream as Nicole did and applied to Wright College. Having a clearer view of what I want in my future, I will do anything necessary to accomplish my goals.
He said I should major in Business, like my mom. Or Medicine, like my aunt. Fields of study that actually could land me a decent paying job after college. And that’s why I really enjoyed Mark Edmundson’s article, because unlike my grandpa, he didn’t make me feel small. In a way, he validated my plans to major in English with a concentration in Creative Writing.
Bearing the title of member of the National Honor Society will also aid in my efforts of being accepted into the college that I choose. I will benefit immensely if granted membership into the National Honor Society, and because of this, I will put in a great deal of effort in contributing to the organization in compensation. Based on my own characteristics, I believe that I will contribute to the National Honor Society greatly. I am a determined and hard-working individual, never settling for anything less than
My experience at St.Rita has helped shape me because there are so many opportunities to shape myself. The opportunities they offer help shape you because they help you become who you want to be, whether you want to be a singer, athlete, or an actor. This school has helped shape me to become a compassionate person. Although I have became a compassionate person I will miss a lot of things here at St. Rita. What I will miss the most
I have always enjoyed children and working with them but once I understood that there was a career that could enable me to improve a child’s life I was set on becoming an Occupational Therapist. I knew I could assist and change the lives of children that have been told they could not succeed nor live life to their fullest potential. Regardless of the struggles these children are facing, they are capable of a multiple of tasks for success. This is the work of an OT to capitalize on their strengths, to allow them to be the absolute best child (and then adult) that they can be. There is nothing more effective to preserve the future of our world and mankind than to nourish each child.
