Over the years, since freshman year i've always had my personal goals that id set every quarter and year. It is important to set goals for yourself so you can see how far you've came and how much you've done. I have many goals, especially as a Junior. But my main goals are to graduate, get into a good college, get my degree, get a good job, and have a family. Overall, just to be successful. You can't just set goals and expect them to come by themselves, you have to work for them and be determined and that is what i plan to do.
My life has been an ongoing stuggle, but my hard work, determination, and enthusiasm for my education have enabled me to pursure my dreams. My academic plans are to major in pre-occupational therapy. After graduating and completing the prerequisite, I plan to obtain a license in Occupational Therapy by attending OT School. Success does not come from a pay check. For me, helping and assisting others acheive their goals is the purest form of success. I want to travel and eventually settle down in my hometown. My overall career goal is to give back to the community that shaped me into the person I am. I am a hardworking-dedicated student, who focuses on my work, yet I have always enjoyed being involved in extracirricular activities. As you can see from my application, I enjoy sports and clubs. In the following year, I plan to get deeper involved
In the passed four years I have realized my passion for learning. Though like every other high school student I love summer vacation, at end of August I am excited and ready to go back to school. I have realized the power of learning and understood that knowledge can take you where you want to go. Not only that but I understand, being a middle-class girl, how lucky I am to have the opportunity of school and the option of college. Nevertheless, it is not that easy. College is expensive where ever you go and no one has thousands of dollars lying around to pay for it all. I have been blessed to have parents who saved some money to help me get through college, yet I will still have debt. Having a passion for learning and going into a science or
Goals, goals, goals they're what people think about and how they are going to achieve them in the future. My three goal in life are to get in the college of my choice, go skydiving and to get a well paying job. These three goals are important to me because they are what I am likely to achieve within the next ten years. As I grow and blossom into someone big, someone bigger than who I am today I don’t mean just physically but bigger intellectually, and more capable. These goals show me that if I want to achieve them, then I have to work hard to accomplish them.
A dream come true I graduated from high school on 2002 and I never stop thinking about going back to school and finish a career. Being married for almost 13 years and after 3 kids I finally did it;
Michael Jordan once said, “I've failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” Through the years in my life, I have made myself refer back to this saying several times whenever I fail at something. One time, however, is more significant than all of the others.
Destiny to Destination The pursuit of attending college has been a personal desire and goal for as long as I can remember. While maintaining a rigorous academic course load, I also had a passion for excelling in my music endeavors. My superior GPA and yearly testing scores broadened my career choices but made it difficult to discern whether I wanted to pursue something in the field of medicine, education, or music. The academics, experiences, and activities that I have been involved with throughout my life, definitely have shaped and encouraged me to think deeper about what it is that I would truly love to excel in on the college level and pursue as a life-long career.
Throughout high school, I always envisioned myself majoring in International Business and achieving the highest degree in that field. But, this past year and a half, along with the tense political season made me realize my true passion for politics. After thinking about it restlessly, I decided that it majoring in Political Science would be the most interesting and beneficial for me and my future.
“She’s pregnant!? Are you oblivious? Your life is over… Do you not realize what is going to happen? You MUST drop out and work to feed your family from now on! I thought you were smarter than this.” This type of verbal abuse continued in my brother-in-law’s family, but as buoyant as both my sister, and her boyfriend were at age 17, this only fed fuel to their fire for triumph. In this day of age, many unplanned pregnancies throughout young adults have discouraged their higher hopes and dreams. Many use the excuse “reality knocked me off my feet” or “things happen for a reason”. Who gave you this excuse…? Are you not the artist of your own reality? You can perhaps lash back at me with a higher power as the answer. Well, I am here to prove to
To bottle the essence in this premier moment- the liquid of success and pride, the raw emotion in that moment that has propelled my character to it's actualized state of being- would have been a fantasy amongst reality. I open my tear dotted eyes as my ears resonate the echoes of confetti cannons and cheers from the arena. My muscles ache with joy, and my mind is chasing the realization that is at hand. I have just won a midwestern color guard championship. The golden haze of chaos that ensues is one that has forever imprinted on my mind, a haze that lingers in my peripheral vision, in constant search of a worthy emotion to compare to. The prime success in this moment alone- has been the sole fuel in the flame of my determination and strive for achieved ambitions.

Curiosity and passion.These are two things that matters to me the most. Throughout my years at high school, I have grown stronger in an environment where I am challenged every day. It is in my nature to push myself towards excellence, in both my academic and extracurricular quests. I love innovation and the application of classroom knowledge to real situations.
College Essay Being passionate about the things I do matters to me. Although it is not necessarily an obvious, quantifiable accomplishment, I believe it is as essential, if not more essential than, any of my other achievements. Passion is actually how I have been able to achieve all that I have thus far in my life. Whenever I am passionate about something, I am more involved and extroverted towards it.
My whole life, people have been telling me to find my passion. Relatives calling me only to ask if I decided which college to go to. Cousins texting if I need help starting my application. Parents and siblings constantly pounding deadlines and expectations into my head. I learned to block them out. Every time the subject came up, I managed to conjure up the strength to mumble an okay where it seemed necessary. Once in awhile, I needed to escape the deadlines, pressure, stress. I went to the only thing that could help calm me. I went to my books, my safe haven.
There are quite a few things that motivates and inspires anyone to do anything in their everyday life. For me nothing really motivated me to be or do anything with my life. I was always bouncing from one thing to another, always changing. It was all very exciting at first but after a little while I would get bored and always ended up trying something else.

Suddenly all I thought about was the life I was living and how I could improve in the aspects of my life, including my education, my values and who I was as an overall person.
