I have always been told that going to college is the opportunity of a lifetime. It seems as if an infinite number of moments have gone into preparing for college. Right when it felt like those moments would continue on forever, I saw the light at the end of the tunnel, and the college process began. As I began to search, and seek God's will for my future, I was forced to ask myself: what is it I truly hope to gain from the college experience? Ultimately I decided that as a college student I hope to become fully prepared for my future career, fellowship and grow with fellow believers in Christ, and be challenged on a deeper level in my relationship with Christ.
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. As well as the social work club, while being in social work you have communities such as Phi Alpha available to you. With Phi Alpha I will also be around people who are taking the same courses that I am and will help me in being successful. I believe that Auburn is a
People are categorized all their life by themselves, their peers, and strangers. Each person is put in a category based on race, age, gender, etc.. In Circles of My Multicultural Self, I put twelve different identifiers and descriptors that defines who I am right now. They are the following: middle-class, complex, hard-worker/driven, agnostic, girlfriend, generous/kind, athletic, adopted, female, future counseling psychologist, and Asian (Korean). The three most impactful identifiers and descriptors are complex, girlfriend, and hard-worker/driven. ‘Complex’ is mostly due to what has been going on in my life, and it describes how my personality, ‘Girlfriend’ describes one of the most relevant events that is going in my life. ‘Hard-worker/driven’ goes hand-in-hand together as it allows me to focus on what I want out of life and college.
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
There is a saying in society “if you are poor you will stay poor.” The United States have said “You have the freedom of changing your classification in your social status.” People close to me have said “as long as it’s something you want, anything is possible.” With the given information, the choice I’ve made was to change my written destiny and make my mark on earth. The path I am willing to take isn’t to benefit my life, but to give back the people who gave me everything I could ever ask for.
Transition from High School to College In my senior year of high school, my goals were getting offers from colleges and getting “5”s in my AP tests. For the most of the time, all I need to do is to follow the instructions from my college counselors and teachers. So it was not very hard for me to reach my goals with their help. I did not need to make a lot decisions by myself except choosing which colleges I want to apply.
My educational goals are to finish high school with all A’s and a GPA of 4.5 or higher. These are short-term goals that will help me to get into a good college. My top choice for college is Davidson College. The next prospects are Vanderbilt University, Appalachian State University, and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In college, I want to obtain, eventually, a Ph.D. and pursue a career in writing and English or potentially become a professor. During college, I want to study abroad, travel out of the US to experience different cultures and lifestyles. My goal is to traverse the world and visit Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Italy, France, England, Greece, etc. I want to see the Eiffel Tower, visit the Roman Coliseum, and explore
For my overall academic goal I would love to get a 4.0 G.P.A but I would at least like to get a 3.5 G.P.A in all of my general and my college major classes for each semester I take at Florissant Valley and also when I attend Forest Park. My strengths to achieve my goal is to stay in my books and study hard to make sure I dont get distracted so I can achieve my goal every semester. Even though I do well in school I need to work on a couple things, one thing I need to work on is my health and wellness, because to achieve my goal I need to have strength and energy and sense my health is poor I get really tired all the time, also something else I need to work on is time management, I need to stop procrastinating and do things right when I get them
I was once considered as a hard worker, but since I entered high school, a wave of procrastination overwhelmed me, preventing my goals in academics and career to take full effect. The first goal that is required to be completed, is breaking my stalling behavior. Once that is completed I
My Goals Ever since I entered school as a little girl I was constantly setting goals for town soccer teams, T-ball games and running the fastest at P.E. class, but as I got older I realized that my goals seemed to change. At this point in time, I want to graduate high school with a 3.6-4.0 GPA, get into my college of choice, complete my scholarships and find my correct career path.
One of my biggest goals in life has always been to obtain a bachelor degree, as this would mean a lot to my family because I would be the first college graduate in the family. In the pursuit of this goal, I start my college experience in American Institute of higher education in El Salvador. It was very challenging to start my academic preparation, in view of the fact that I didn’t know which would be the University where I would eventually finish my major. Therefore, I decided during that time that I must start my search for the University in which I would enjoy studying. After concluding my basic classes in the American Institute of higher education, I was accepted at Florida International University. There I began a new challenge in my
On the motivational quiz, my score was a 44/60. A 44 says “You get things done, and you don't let anything stand in your way. You make a conscious effort to stay self-motivated, and you spend significant time and effort on setting goals and acting to achieve those
As a young women of color who's aware of her surroundings and the constant problems that occur in the world today, I have set many goals to solve a number of those problems. I have started working towards those goals through volunteering and studying. All around the world, different problems occur most of which are on different scales of significance. The problems I’m referring to are starvation, poverty, and famine. Over 795 million people suffer from constant undernourishment. Over 22,000 children die everyday due to poverty. This is a very sensitive topic and one I hold close to my heart. I aspire to have some type of positive impact on this issue and with my college degree I can do this.
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.
High school goals Having a high GPA and a good academic skill set is critical in getting into a good college. All colleges will look at my high school GPA, grades, and involvement in the school. Connecting to my GPA I must do good in my academics and shoot for the best classes that I can take to get more credits for college. Just like my academics colleges will be looking at my involvement and how I am affecting my classmates and campus around me. I believe that I can achieve my goals by senior year if I maintain a GPA of 3.5 or above, and get involved in extracurricular activities.
