Obtaining a postsecondary education is important to me because I have a passion for helping people and learning. As a first-generation postsecondary student, I understand the values of education. I grew up with my parents always telling me that I am lucky because I will have a chance to get an education, most people live struggling to make ends meet because they didn 't have a chance, just like my parents. As someone who comes from having very little, I always prided myself on the fact that I can, at least, have an education. Also, from the volunteered work I have done every chance I get I believe a postsecondary education will give me a chance to give back.
Ever since I graduated High school they kept pushing me like if I was one a swing, to keep going and I did, I attended Heritage University. I did not want to be far away from my parents and sister, so Heritage was the best option I had. My parents have been my every day inspiration because every day they work so hard to bring food and keep a roof under our heads and I am very thankful for that. That’s why I’m here going to school and trying my best to graduate and become someone later, so they can be glad that I achieved and didn’t back out. We have to follow the path because that path never ends it might have rough edges and bumps, but as long as you believe you will soon get to your destination.
Luckily nothing extreme happen to me, I stayed away from things that will put me in danger like the rides at the water parks. Few years later I wanted to make a change in my life and have my son live a better life. So I attended a local college I thought the one class per month and one subject per day was the best thing I could have done but it was more work than I thought it would be it took me three months to finish one class. In about two years I got pregnant again with my daughter that’s when I said its over how could I get through life with two kids being a single mother. I remember I was doing school search and I give up because there was nothing I could afford or even have the time to
TAmerica 's promise is to keep your rights and let you achieve what you want in life if it 's reasonable. America 's promise is the main thing that migrants look up to when they come over. They come searching liberty and a better life promised by the USA. “We The People” as stated in the Declaration of Independence have many rights given to us by living in the United States. Human aspiration is the base of america 's promise, to its people we expect to be able to achieve even if we can obtain everything we expect to be able to atleast try and have a chance to.
A School where you are surrounded by people of all ages, you are taught by real college professors and have to take responsibility for yourself. This was a huge step for me, along the way I fumbled and sort of slipped of track, but my devotion for my dream of attending college and entering the health profession pulled me right back on tract. My whole life I have been devoted to education and striving to do better. My strive for bettering myself and reaching my goals and dreams will never stop, no matter
When I was a little girl, my mother taught me to have a caring heart for the people I love. She encouraged me to volunteer to help my grandparents around their home emptying the dishwasher, picking up brush in the yard, folding the clothes, and helping with supper and the mountain of dishes that followed. I never realized how important this act of kindness would shape my life the way it has. I have always had a great desire to work with children; through experience, I know that I have an abundance of dedication and desire to guide a child in the way a mentor would to shape their life. By volunteering for the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, a nonprofit organization, I will have the opportunity to pair with a child in hopes of reaching out
She instilled in me that education is the gateway to a better life. School and education have always been important to me, as has being my own person. Leading, and not expecting things to fall into place, but working for them, that is how success is achieved. Among the other lessons my mother has taught me, without even meaning to was her form of charity and citizenship. When I was young, if she saw litter she would always pick it up, stating “If we don’t pick it up who will?” Her rectitude taught me to take the initiative in my education and in my community.
They were my first educators in life so obvious my identity is based off theirs with some exceptions. Without the support of my immediate family, I would not be who I am today. As I have grown, I believe my cultural identity has changed in ways though. I have my own opinions now and know more about how I want my life to go. My family members always support my decisions and listen to what I have to say.
Out of everyone in my life I feel as if my mother is the person who influences me most. My mother is someone who is very sweet and would do anything for her kids as well as her family to make sure they are happy and smiling. As I started to grow up and started to go out and be more independent that is when I started to realize what an impact my mom has on my life. Growing up my parents were divorced and my mom was the one who basically raised me on her own. She showed me right from wrong and guided me and pushed me to do the right things in life and strive for success.
We first-borns are perfectionists, consequently, we feel the pressure to be the best. I always felt like I had to set an example for my younger sister. I wanted her to look up to me with pride, so ever since I was little I tried to be good to my parents, teachers, and friends. I dedicated myself to everything I did, like school and sports. I gave it all my best effort so I could inspire my sister to do the same.
The legacy I will leave for my children will be the values I teach them throughout their childhoods: compassion, hard work, and confidence. I whole-heartedly believe in treating others the way I want to be treated. That particular phrasing may sound cliche to some, but I believe it perfectly illustrates why being nice to others is so vital. When I was in grade school, and someone would make fun of me, I was offended by their insult, but I always
