I want to be able to look back on those experiences and know that I may have inspired someone to help others in the same way that I did for them. I believe that I will be able to look at my experiences in high school and see that I made a difference in my
The year and a half I spent after high school wondering what I should do with my life was a pretty low point in my life. I was confused and most of the time thought poorly of myself. College has helped re-invigorate me and helped me see my self-worth again. Going to class and seeing myself succeed made me feel better than I had in quite a while. Then finding a career that I am excited about has helped me be eager for what the future holds.
Learning to read and write was not an option; it was a requirement. “School will be what makes you succeed in life,” my parents and educators would say. I did not realize how hard it would be to read and write; however, it came natural to me, in the beginning. Struggling many times, several people did not believe in me; however, that never stopped me from wanting to gain more knowledge as I grew older. There has always been more positive people to motivate me whenever I needed inspiration.
I want to research this question because it would be of high importance to know and understand these sorts of manifestations when they may come about in my own life. All of these questions and more are the things that I will strive to better understand throughout the journey of this
I will not dream about success I’ll always work for it. As the only child in the family I knew that I have a massive responsibility on my shoulders. My parents knew the value of education and they sent me to one of the prestigious colleges in the country. From a youthful age my heart was in the Science and Technology field. Constantly back in my primary schooling age I have reminded my mother “mother, I want to be a scientist someday”.
In joining the field of higher education, I aspire to learn how to support students in their college journey by using theories and frameworks. However, in being able to help others, I have also learned that I need to reflect on my own self-identity and belonging in this world. Throughout this essay, I will explore different frameworks we discussed in class, which I see useful to
I had to go to the writing center a number of times just to understand what my assignment was really about. Overall, I learned that everyone has their struggles in college, not everyone understands it. I learned that even though I struggled every day in this class, I learned what I needed to work on the most and that was applying myself more. Not only have I discussed how I transitioned into the role of a college student, but I will always be discussing the processes I followed to be successful in English
Not having anyone to look to as a mentor or for career and educational planning answers, I did not receive any guidance until high school. My friends were all planning on going to college and I could not be the only one to sit it out. Throughout high school their seemed to be this pressure for everyone to continue their education, through some sort of secondary education. As a freshman you were given the options of choosing specialty courses that could prepare you for employment after graduating high school. I choose to follow the route of the health science program.
Those lessons for better or worse shaped me into who I am today. The realization of who I am, motivated me to be a figure for those who need guidance. Since I will be attending college, I hope to, with my Bachelor of Science degree in psychology, become a therapist to lend a hand out to those who are
