For my short term goal, I just want to do the best I can academically and as an athlete here for the saint’s. I’m aiming to make a memorable experience with the few years I have left in my undergrad. I know this position would really take a burden off of my parents and myself financially. Especially, if I could have the opportunity to work on campus and having it
I am incredibly grateful to have received this scholarship. I am currently on the way to graduate with my Early Childhood Education degree in the spring of 2018. It has been a bit of a rocky road for me in my college years; I support and live by myself, and the cost of paying my tuition has weighed heavily on my shoulders. By being selected to earn this scholarship, I can now focus more on my education instead of my financial issues that comes with paying tuition. After I earn my degree, I plan to work in a school district in Licking County as a preschool/kindergarten teacher.
I take having an education for granted. The only reason why is because of my parents and grand parents. It was difficult for them to come to a new country and not understand the langue. My grandparents had to learn english from my mother and father. My parents push me extremely hard to have a good education so that I can be successful in life.
I know taking a four-year degree in Nursing will be a long way to tread, but with patience I can become successful. With determination, I can do my best to prove to myself, to my family, that I will be a successful nurse after four years. I will work hard and focus on my studies now that I am still in high school. I will keep surrounding myself with positive influences. Eventually, I will share my knowledge to people who also want to become nurse in order to achieve their goals, too.
I used to feel everything deeper than words can explain, but not anymore. The way I grew up makes it significantly harder to understand why people are so emotional, and I can’t share those feelings someone has when they are in need of guidance. Another issue I have is time management. I usually wait until the last minute to finish any work I have because I am a teenager. It’s exhausting to always be moving, not being able to go home after school and settling down, like I used to do.
I work with one of my aunts and she is helping me find the best work schedule so I can have time for school, and enjoy myself at least one time per month. My life is not easy, but if I have my family with me everything is possible. The second possible barrier to my education is my economic status. Like I mentioned before my father died, so I depend only on my mother and myself, and college is not cheap. I am in the process of becoming a permanent resident of the United States, but until then I do not have access to FAFSA and other type of scholarships, so I have to pay college all by myself.
What motivates me to pursue a degree in education is the personal satisfaction, the chance to make a difference in a child’s life, and having the opportunity to teach young children. Five years ago, if you would’ve asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would’ve told you that I want to be a pediatric nurse. When I was in preschool, I always played doctor with my teacher, I loved it! So, when middle school and high school rolled around, and my family and friends asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always said I want to be a nurse. My senior year of high school I really thought about what I wanted to do after I graduate.
I would like to share my knowledge to help empower children and adults who may need it most. A degree at the UTHSC would give me the credentials to excel in my profession and educate others on the importance of preventative care. I have been interested in attending the UTHSC since my freshman year in high school. My dentist and dental hygienist attended this university and informed me on the great academics, helpful faculty and hands on experience that the UTHSC provides. I know if I am accepted into UTHSC, I will bring the passion and motivation that it takes to learn and to succeed in this prestigious program.
The infamous answer to the question, “What is your primary goal for going to school?” is “to further my education, get a job, and be successful” such a cliché if I must say myself. My goal attending school is to make my family happy, as well as myself. In high school, I did not apply myself like I should have done because I was not sure if college was in my favor. Also, being the child of a single parent wanting to attend college seemed impossible, especially far from home. In a family where no one has surpassed the first two years of college, I feel a spotlight is on me to not only finish, but also finish strong.
(However, students with mental deficiencies or behavioral problems cannot be accepted because the staff is not equipped for these students.) Holding to theses concepts, FSHCA started with six students and began the 2013-2014 school year with 40 students. Now, the makeup of the student body includes students who simply desire a better education than what they were receiving to students who were labeled and told they would never gain a higher education. They are all prospering and we cannot wait to join in future success stories over the coming years. God is meeting a need for these families on many different levels.
I am requesting this scholarship to help pursue my dream to become a registered nurse to be able to help and lead others. I want to be able to help people get well. Also to give premature babies a voice to be heard, and to be healthy to survive. I have always wanted to be a nurse ever since my twin and I were born at twenty-nine weeks in critical condition. We beat the odds and became two healthy baby girls.
Even I started in my middle age, my previous work and life experience had built the stronger motivation; and I’ve built some savings to support a speech language pathology study without a full time job. I understand this program requires intensive medical-terminology-filled study in class and rigorous clinic practice, I’m confident my academic foundation, my adaptability, and hard work principals would be my assets to overcome the new challenges. I kind of did it before: Without a bachelor’s degree in business, I have successfully completed the MBA program within 3 years with a Certificate of Excellence for achieving a GPA 3.84 while working as a full time
My educational goal is to graduate from college and get my bachelor 's degree in Pediatric Nursing. This reason why I say this is because graduating from college is a huge accomplishment. Graduating from high school and going to college is a huge stepping stone because you 're starting a new chapter in your life. Think about it, you are going through 4 years of learning about a major that you are passionate about and wanting to have a career is the biggest motivational drive, What you’re passionate about can be your drive to finish college because wouldn’t you want a career? The second educational goal is to become a Pediatric Nurse.
