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.

Before attending the University of Memphis, my writing abilities and thought process was quite narrow. Writing papers and essays have always been a struggle for me, I do not really have the best skills in writing. Entering college has showed me the importance of writing and how its importance will never vade. Knowing that, one of my ultimate goals in college is to improve in my writing, not only for myself, but also for my future in wanting to pursue a degree in nursing.
Ever since I was young, I was exposed to a Historically Black College or University, Jackson State University. I had always went to activities and functions such as football games, summer programs, and other special events. I did not know whether I would attend a historically Black College or University (HBCU) or not at the time. I had finally decided to go to a HBCU, and I would attend Tougaloo College in the fall to further my education. I have many goals and objectives for pursing my educational experience at a historically Black College, and I plan to achieve them.
I have decided on what I wanted to do with college since I was a child. It sounds ridiculous, but I am passionate about what I want to do. I was inspired at a very young age since I was in third grade, and I knew that I wanted to be a teacher. A teacher for what grade is what I did not know. As my family grew bigger with my nephews and nieces, I realized that I wanted to be surrounded by kids. I put what I wanted with my passion and got major. My intended major is to receive a double major in Primary and Elementary education, my goal is to receive a Masters in at least one of these majors.
My short term goals are to earn multiple degrees in college and discover what career I want to pursue. I plan to do this by working extremely hard in a wide variety of classes in order to find what fields I could work in and enjoy. Since I’m not entirely sure what I want to pursue in life, my only prevailing long term goal is to be content and proud of what I have accomplished. I feel that as long as I consistently work hard and strive to be the best I can be, I will accomplish this goal. I believe that Weber Honors College will help me to achieve these goals by constantly challenging me to outdo myself. I also believe the amazing opportunities the school provides such as a wide selection of majors and classes, study abroad experiences, and
My educational goals are to get accepted into a great college, such as New Mexico State University and achieve the highest level of excellence that I am able to push myself to, just as I did within my high school years. As usual, when you ask someone about their goals it is a very simple answer such as something that can be achieved without hardships and something that is the least stressful. However, I myself strive to be better than that and know that great things are accomplished when you put forth your full effort. With that being said I strive to have excellent grades with a minimum of a 3.8 GPA and work with my best effort to excel at an accelerated level. Eventually earning my bachelor's degree and considering going back for my master's
I would consider myself very an incredibly driven person, both academically, and in my personal goals. Throughout my educational career, I have consistently strived to achieve the most I could. For me, this meant high academic achievements, honors accolades and achieving the goals that I set my mind to. I have a very strong intrinsic drive to seize every opportunity I’m given. To guarantee I didn’t close any doors to my future I applied to as many colleges as I could instead of staying in my comfort zone and applying to schools I was guaranteed admission to. One of the biggest ways that I am a go-getter is the fact that I faced rejection head on from top schools in the country. For me, it was better to try than always wonder “what-if” even though the process became extremely disheartening at times. I pushed myself throughout the admissions process to have as many opportunities as possible. Additionally, I have an innate desire to learn new things and grow through my education. I have pushed myself to take challenging Advanced Placement electives in subjects I am passionate about and I am eager to begin college to continue increasing my knowledge in certain fields. In college, my biggest goal is to graduate in three years. While this new challenge may be difficult to achieve as my degree plan involves two majors in Anthropology and Communications and a minor in Interdisciplinary Studies I also understand how rewarding it will be to complete my studies in an

My goals after college are to become a in-school social worker and help children everyday. Auburn University will help me in achieving these goals in multiple different ways. One of the ways in the social work club at Auburn will be a great advantage, this is because I will be surrounded by people who have the same purpose for their lives as I do for mine as well as people who will be taking the same courses as I will and will be able to help me throughout my college journey.

Though it is not easy to work and finish college at the same time, I decided to pursue my degree and finish it this time because I wanted to have a sense of security that will keep me in good position to support me and my family.

My mom recently went to school for becoming a radiologist, she is studying everyday all the time. We only see the back of her head, she is doing great in the class though, she has the top grade.

My brother was in one and he says there a lot of fun so I would love to try it out. My second goal is my academic goal. I would like to use my mom as inspiration or this one. I would like to study as she is, we can even sit next to each other and study together, and finally my goal for sports, I would like to try to get Jockey award because both of my siblings did and it would top it off, and I would love to improve my soccer skill. I recognize the importance of having God in my life and putting him first and having him help me one step at a time.
