My Life Goals For College

Decent Essays
Most of my pre-teen years I thought I was not able to go to college. I thought it was too expensive and that only the smart people and people who had enough money could go. Until I got to middle school, I found out about scholarships and how they can really help students of parents with low income go to college. I wanted to learn more and more about programs that help students like me. I wanted to make my parents proud but most importantly, myself. I think college is a gateway to a million possibilities and doing the things you love for the rest of your life. This was the start of my lifelong goals. I was born in Walla Walla Washington, on September 5th of 2000 but was raised in Lakewood Washington. I’m the oldest of my three siblings. Both of my parents come from Oaxaca, Mexico. As the oldest sibling, I never had help with school. This kind of affected me with school. My grandparents didn’t have enough money to pay for my parents’ high school education. I was raised to have responsibilities ate the age of 9, when my parents worked a lot because they needed money. I now go to Mount Tahoma high school and will be a graduate of class of 2019 next year. I am hoping that I get enough help to pay for college. I also am the first generation in my family that will attend college, I used to think I wasn’t going to be able to know things about college because my parents didn’t know anything about it, but then I joined a college program that showed me what college really was.
