The Importance Of My Career In Education

Good Essays

I just knew somehow, some way I wanted to “make it”. To “make it” wasn’t really defined. It was an arbitrary thing that my friends and I said to each to each other that sounded right, after all we all just want to “make it”. I was told to go to college, but I didn’t know why.
