My parents did not have many options. They come from very poor families and started working at very young ages, not having the opportunity to finish their basic education. They only went back to school to pursue their high school equivalency certificates in their forties (when I was
My parents were unable to pursue their educational goals, so they made a commitment to instill in me, the value of education. They taught me that college will provide me with the foundation necessary to pursue my academic goals and to prepare me for success in my professional development. It also gives
Two years ago our family was changed forever when the women who helped us thrive passed away. She inspired me in ways that no other person ever could. Only a month of summer had gone by and it was already the most inferior one i've ever experienced. The day my great grandma died, I had just gotten back from Billings after my grandma Barb had emergency surgery. We got back and got the call that she only had moments to live. As I was listening to my aunt on the other line, I felt like I couldn't breath. Cancer had taken over her body and it was too much for her to bare. Considering, I lived out of town, she died before we arrived there. Although her death was tragic, she was a hero who died in the end just like Beowulf. Two years ago, my hero died and I will forever respect her for saving our family, always being there for us, and for living the life she dreamed of.
College is very important to me because it can equip me with the tools and knowledge I need to do better in life and not just barely making it, also help me to have a more open mind set about life and knowledge. Now I understand I need a good college education and more knowledge to move ahead in life. Also college
My parents’ ultimate goal was for my siblings and me to graduate from high school. Noemi, Jesus, and Erwin, my older siblings, never told me about the do’s and don’ts of school. Their lack of guidance frustrated me. I always thought that older siblings wanted the best for the youngest. Whenever I asked them something though, like how to spell a word, their response was, “Are you stupid? How don't you know how to spell that?” After getting shut down multiple times, I stopped asking for help.
My reasons for a why college is important to me are not only because of money but it has to do with me and my life. I have always dreamed of being a third or fourth grade teacher since I was about five years old. My ultimate dream and goal in life is to achieve that dream and become a teacher. With out a education I would not be able to go into that
College is important to me for many reasons.For example,the article, “Getting Ready for College Early: Steps 1,2,3 & 4” by U.S. Department of Education states that “A two-or-four-year college degree is becoming more and more important for unlocking the doors
Going to college was always an important aspect to me. Coming from a home where the highest level of education was a GED, making something of myself has been a substantial goal that I’ve always yearned. When I was in the 8th grade, I was determined to become a veterinarian. It’s become somewhat apart of who I am. Going to college means that I’m one step closer to progressing to my goal. My goal to actually make something of myself that no one thought I could legitimately achieve.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” As a child, we have all been asked this question; and as unrealistic children, we all had dreams of being a superhero, princess, cowboy, or astronaut. Later on in life, as time went by, and as we became more knowledgeable, our answers became more serious. Some of us wanted to be teachers, business owners, or a veterinarian. However, I have always wanted to be a doctor, but not just any doctor. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to be a pediatrician. Now, half way through my junior year in high school, I have started to question the details of this career, and all the hard work it takes to become a part of the medical field.
I had two hard working parents who went above and beyond to ensure that my sister and I had a good childhood by trying to grant as many requests that they could. They always stressed the importance of hard work to achieve anything and everything we set our minds to and education, but I was very young so education wasn't that high on my priority list. I wanted to become a truck driver or a construction worker, but after my dad suffered a back injury at his job I knew that I wanted to fix his
Fought a very long, hard battle.. Before and after I don't think there was ever a time that I did not see a smile on your face. Praying for the Neal family, loved ones, and classmates of Khiry. Him and his story was such an inspiration to the city of Camden and truly brought together the entire community. God always has a
They always expected a lot from me but I just wanted to follow my own path. I know I maybe should've done what they said to avoid their wrath but I could honestly care less about what they wanted from me. Besides I'm not the only child in the family. But then again, my brother was... Never mind.
