Gripping it tightly, I closed my eyes, remembering what my dad said whenever we watched a zombie show. "Swing at the head Ivy." Opening my eyes, still gripping the knife, I look around the kitchen. Dodging cans, bowls, and bottles, I peek around the corner to the living room. Seeing nothing there, I head to the last room downstairs, the laundry room.
Why do you want to participate in the Bridges Summer Program? Participating in the Bridges Summer Program will help me greatly in the transition between high school and college. Reading about the program I have learned that this program is meant to help students transition to a college-level work environment and I know that I need this type of help. The good thing about this program is that they help students individually and this way students will have a better chance at really being prepared to start college in the fall. I want to participate in this program so that I can take advantage of how the program will help me to reach my career goal and transition from Valencia to UCF by directconnect.
At school, I rarely felt challenged and I would enjoy being in a program that makes me think about real-world situations in a way that will help me later in life. I would like to expand my knowledge concerning negotiation and debate in a friendly setting. Last year, I learned things at LCM that I had never heard of before. It would be nice to be learning these skills for the entire year, as LCM is my only source of information concerning debate and
Throughout the years I have been a hard worker, if I start a job I finish it (unless something serious gets in the way) I am dedicated to what I love and I love learning new things. For the past four years I have been attending Valley High School and I love it! This school has taught me how to be a better person, how to be a leader, and how to stand up for what I believe in. I would love to be able to continue my education, it means a great amount to me! My family isn’t extremely wealthy, I was raised to be independent, that means I will be paying for my own education.
With me being interested in the arts ever since a young age, I still do want to follow my passion and become some sort of artist for my career. I am often not waived by the options of others in regards to my career path, but when it comes to my family, they often do have a slight say in what I would like to enter. Since my dad has always wanted to run a family construction business, I feel the need to be involved in some sort of major relating to that so, I decided to most likely declare Interior Design for the next semester as my major since it is a very fascinating field for me with the combination of human interaction
Finding motivation to attend college is easy, keeping the motivation to finish is the difficult part. I decided to enroll in college to earn my Bachelor’s degree in Business with a concentration in Finance. I hope that the degree will give me the opportunity to apply for a better position within the organization that I currently work for. A secondary goal of returning to school is to demonstrate to my son that attending college is required for many jobs and that returning to school as an adult has various difficult challenges. I have been working for the past nine years as an Assistant Financial Officer and am highly competent at my job.
1. How would receiving the scholarship be transformational in your life, and why are you deserving of a scholarship? Receiving a scholarship would be transformational to my life because it would allow me to keep attending this school. I'm an out-of-state student, so money is a current issue for my family. While we have enough money for me to attend college next year, I need to do my part and help contribute to my educational goals.
The day I can say I have my masters in criminal justice is the day I know I have reached my biggest life goal! I have always had people doubt my ability in finishing college and getting a career. I not only want to prove them wrong, I also want to give myself the self fulfillment I deserve. The last thing that will keep me motivated to keep going until graduation is of course, my son and fiance. When I feel frustrated and dis-motivated, my fiance is always there making sure I am getting my school work done and telling me that I can do this.
Bettering myself will make mine and my family lives better. Financial stability is the second most important reason why I decided to go back to college. I would love to be out of debt, before I die and not leave my debts to my family to have to take care of. I want and would love to have a 9-5 job. To have financial freedom will mean I will
