The reason I came the United States is for study. Same as millions international students, I choose American as a place where I attend college, there are two reasons make me made this decision. The first reason is that America has one of the best higher level education in the world. United States not only has best universities of the world, but also the whole nation’s universities have a better academic performance than rest of the world. So that I came to America for study in order to enhance myself. The second reason of I came to America is the competition in my country – China is intense. In the past year, there are 765 million students graduated from college, since the population of college students is super large, find an idea job in China
In 2011, my parents and I came to America. The choice that my parents made had benefited my academic career. I have a better education here and schools in America helped me become a better 2learner. Education is an important part of one’s life. Without a
I want to pursue my health care career in Nursing. I always dreamed of being a nurse, because I enjoy working and caring for people. Ever since I was a little girl I carried a toy stethoscope around and havin my family be my patients. I was not like any other kid, who played with barbies and kenn. My mom even knew I was going to fall in the great path of the health care. My potential is to have the greatest affect on others who are in need of my help. Also, I chose nursing to be my health career, because I have seen the real path of nursing in the real world. Attending a vocational high school, has given me a chance to enter the health assisting program. A four year high school program has put an outrageous affect on me. I learned how to practice
Stepping out of my first plane ride, I experience an epiphany of new culture, which seems to me as a whole new world. Buzzing around my ears are conversations in an unfamiliar language that intrigues me. It then struck me that after twenty hours of a seemingly perpetual plane ride that I finally arrived in The United States of America, a country full of new opportunities. It was this moment that I realized how diverse and big this world is. This is the story of my new life in America.
Pursuing a career in nursing brings me an internal satisfaction beyond words. I enjoy being around people and I feel with my caring and empathetic soul, I can use that to heal the mind, body and souls of my patients. My reason for wanting to return to college comes from my desire to be in a position to make an impact on someone’s life. In my current position I provide assistance to individuals on a daily basis, but it is not satisfying my need to help heal. I am currently 30 years old and I love children and I am eager to work with children and when I would like to know about their little bodies so that I can be aware of how to help them. I naturally have the need to nurture and protect others. I have 2 nieces and when each of them was born I was so impressed by the level of care that the NICU nurses provided to
“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Truer words have never been spoken. Coming to America was my greatest adventure and my biggest fear. I had never traveled to a foreign country before. I was intrigued about the culture, the people, and the country itself. What will it be like? Will I be able to adjust to that pace of life? Will I make new friends? I would have to find answers with experience. Moving to another country meant starting a new life over again, in an unfamiliar place with strangers i have never met. Being the “new kid” is never comfortable.
As I prepare to begin my adult life after high school graduation, I plan to continue my education at California State University, Long Beach and hope to graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. Spending my four years of high school in the AIMS program at Jordan has influenced me to continue to pursue higher education. Getting the best education possible will allow me to be able to give back to my community by providing affordable and valuable care to everyone. I was given me the opportunity to volunteer at the Long Beach Veteran Affairs hospital and in the Long Beach Bike Uptown program. These experiences have made me realize how important it is to help others and that every little action a person does affects others. I would like to become
My family and I came to America in the year 2003, and those few years afterward made me realized the tremendous amount of love my parents had for us. Although I was only three, I saw how my father worked long hours trying to keep a young family of five comfortable and safe. He taught me the importance of hard work and endurance. My mother taught me the importance of education. We came to America because due to her receiving a student visa to complete her Masters in Christian Theology and Social Work. She would come back to from long classes and pick us up from daycare. Although she was tired, she made sure that her family was fed and well. As soon as everyone was well, she would finish her homework. Her desk and computer were located in my
I am a spouse of an ARMY active duty soldier who has three beautiful kids. I have a passion for nursing and cannot wait to finish my degree in this field. I have been a certified nursing assistant for the last ten years while raising my family and moving around the U.S. with my husband due to him being in the military. As a CNA, my love for nursing and taking care of people grew to a passion. I knew this was my calling. Due to moving a lot these last few years and having to go through multiple deployments with my spouse it has become challenging to finish my degree, but has not stopped me. Just set me back some. I really want to show my kids that it is possible to accomplish your dreams despite what life throws at you. However, with the economy downfall and the rise of cost for living it is becoming a struggle financially to pay for college. It is a consent battle whether to pay for things your family needs or to pay for another set of classes to take. I have recently been accepted into the CTC Nursing program. This means I am only two years from graduating with my degree in nursing. I am undeniable motivated to finish what I started not only for my family, but to prove to myself that anything is possible.
When I came to America, the first thing I started was going to the place where I can learn English. It is very important for me to learn this language because I came from a country where people speak Arabic, and this is their official language. In America, people speak
When I visit the Children’s Hospital, I see children who have hope. Barely every 30 seconds a child dies of malaria and so many children are suffering from different health problems. I would like to be there for these children and be part of the reason for them getting better in their health. My short term goal is gaining my Bachelor’s degree in nursing and my long term goal is becoming a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner someday. I know getting this degree will help me move a step further to reaching and fulfilling my goals. At the moment, I am taking some of the general education requirements and elective classes for the university I would like to transfer to. To be a nurse in general, I know there are so many requirements one has to undertake, but some of the most important ones are biology, anatomy, physiology, chemistry, and psychology. All these courses helps to prepare me more for the nursing program and career ahead of me. Biology is a prerequisite that helps in understanding many of the fundamental courses in health related courses and it is a required course for almost all sciences. I have a GPA of 3.90 and working as a part-time, I am so much dedicated that I am doing so well to maintain a good GPA so I can make it in my
When I came to America from China at age 16, everyone around me appeared to be different. However, I didn’t just talk to my Chinese friends. I pushed myself outside of my bubble; I tried my best to make friends with American students, while I still maintained good relationships with my Chinese friends. America is very different from what I expected, everyone speaks so fast and unclear; it almost made English a completely different language from what I had already learned. As I was trying to make friends, I realized that Chinese culture had made me different from Americans; things that I was curious about as a Chinese person were very private to American students. For example, in America, people won’t mention what their parents’ jobs are when they meet someone for the first time.
I had a culture shock, as I started my high school. People didn't value, care about their classes, teachers, school work compared to what I was use to at my hometown. Going to school and paying fees which cost hundreds of dollars and books was way too much in foreign countries, but they managed to do it. People over here students get free education till their high school and even their college year. Miss Mukherjee also states that when she came from Indian “we would endure our two years in America secure our degrees. But insiders they think it is not necessary to be in class, listen to their teachers or to be something to be proud off. Our parents always taught us that you are not American, where everything will be easy for you. They always told us that we should use the harder path as much as you can so it will be easier for us in future. Moreover, some low-income people get special care where they get food from social services. Everyone knows that America has the best. Everyone knows that American has the best of everything, even Americans know that too. but the only people like to use it; is the outsiders because they can see clearly what they have here and now they can get use of
I came to America as an exchange student from Vietnam at the age of fifteen. When I decided to go alone to an unfamiliar environment, no one thought it was a wise decision. My friends advised me to give up on that intention and focus on learning in Vietnam. My parents are afraid that I will be in danger and nobody will take care for me. But I want to experience new cultures, and especially this is the beginning of my dream to study at famous American universities. Participate in this program allows me to not only build personal relationships when studying and interacting with Americans but also to learn about US culture from a local perspective. Apart from me, there are cultural exchanges students from other countries such as Japan, Spain.
In fact, after I got married, I immediately traveled abroad. I have spent four years in USA and recognize a lot of rules, habits, religions and culture values.
