I would like to attend college because I want to be successful in life, I understand it is getting harder to get a job with only a high school diploma and it is sure to get worse. My goals for the future include getting into a college with a good teaching and mathematics program, this could give me a variety of jobs and I was speaking to someone and they told me that people are looking out for women who have a degree in mathematics which will help me to obtain a good paying job.
Media surrounds us, from the graphic design on our morning cellophane coffee cups, to the carefully designed spreads in the magazines we religiously read. The world of Media and Film is beautifully complex, and something which I strongly want to be involved with. I have always immersed myself in the world of Media, and have only ever felt truly satisfied when I’ve been involved in broadening my knowledge and understanding of the industry.
I am writing to express my interest in the Program Coordinator position at Breakthrough Central Texas. I am interested in this position because I strongly believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to attend college and fulfill their dreams, but I also know that the playing field is not leveled for everyone. I want to work in an environment that empowers and supports the youth to reach their full potential and this position offers that incredible opportunity.
Living in America I am given many opportunities to pursue my education such as being surrounded by fantastic colleges and being the first person in my family to graduate high school and attend college.I am determined to have a great profession and make my parents proud. An important short-term goal is attending Mercer University for both undergraduate and graduate school with the most financial aid as possible My parents emigrated from India and came here with nothing. They have suffered through many hardships financially and personally to provide for my sister and I. Due to my dad’s health issues he is forced to retire and stay home. Our expenses solely rely on my mother’s income and the income I receive from my part time job. Since my family’s funds are limited, applying for financial aid is critical in order for me to attend college.
I would like to attend college because I thoroughly enjoy learning. I take great pride in my education; as a women in the twenty-first century, I am going to take advantage of the opportunities I have and educate myself as much as possible. Obtaining a college degree is also essential to thrive in the industry I would like to be involved in after college, the fashion business industry. I selected my major, business administration because I have curated and ran an online store since I was thirteen. I enjoyed the experience so much that I made the decision to pursue it as a career and not just a hobby.
Making the decision to not attend the University of Massachusetts Amherst during the Fall of 2015 was one of the most difficult decisions I have had to make. When I came to the realization that I wanted to be a nurse I was too far along in the college process that It was too late for me to re-apply. I could not transfer into the program, as the Umass Nursing program only accepts Freshman Applicants. I had to bite the bullet, I was to attend college in the fall with my close friends and compatriots and study something I had no drive or passion for, or I was to withdraw my application and remove myself from the safety and certainty of a good education and future. This decision would mark the passage into adulthood, something I would not yet know until I had made the tough choice.
As a first generation student, academic promise hasn’t always been a focus of mine until my high school years. Coming from a family where the only post-high school education is whatever training you receive at work, it is hard to relate when the possibility of university is so far away. Four years after high school, I have not only worked full time but also received my associates degree from my hometown community college. That is all great thanks to the family that have raised me, and taught me that hard work is the only work capable of doing. My parents never had the opportunity to attend college, so they taught me what they knew in life instead; where manners are always required, hard work is mandatory, and when finished with that work; you
I was raised by my father until I was 13 years old, he was a school bus driver and always struggled to provide for us.

Since moving to the United States, a land of opportunity, I followed the immigrant tradition of working hard to pursue my passion/ambition to study and get my degree. I started attending community college a year after I came to the United states. I spent three years at Northern Virginia Community College and transferred to the university of Virginia to earn a B.A degree. I have always kept a full-time job while attending community college to cover my living expenses and help my parents back home Throughout my journey of achieving a higher degree, I learned how to work hard and how to overcome challenges in my own personal and academic life. Now I am very confident in achieving my goals.
I have committed myself to pursuing my undergraduate degree because I am completely aware of the importance of education. I am also a proud first generation college student determined to succeed, undeterred by my circumstances as an adolescent. I didn’t have a typical childhood. My mother was an alcoholic who also struggled severely with drug addiction. Unfortunately, her dependence led her into a cycle of domestic violence, jail, and many failed treatment attempts. Her choices preceded her absence for the majority of my life. From my knowledge, she didn’t even attain a high school diploma. My father was always present in my life. He raised my brother and me without the help of a significant other. He always emphasized education so he put me through private schooling.
From a young age, I’ve always known I wanted to attend college. To pursue what intrigues me and to study what I’m passionate about sounds like an opportunity I just cannot pass up. I have always enjoyed going to school and learning new subjects year after year, each year, giving a deeper understanding of the topics given to me. College would assist in broadening my horizons, finding new experiences, and deepening my roots in education.
Ever since I was a little girl, I have wanted to attend North Dakota State University. Both my sister and dad are NDSU alumni, so furthering my education where they did gives us something special we can share. Additionally, not many of my relatives attended college, allowing me to see the difficulties in providing for yourself and family without a college degree. Although I know the next seven years are going to be challenging, strenuous, and will push me to the edge of my comfort zone, the satisfaction of administering medical services to those who need them will make it all worth it. Not only will I be able to care for others with a Pharm. D., but my own opportunities will grow. Whenever I get discouraged during the coming years, my mantra will be “college is an investment in myself,” a reminder to keep working hard.
I am not a traditional student applying for a chance to study at your college. I am not here right after graduation from high school nor am I trying to change careers. I am here to begin a career after more than 15 years out of high school, with life experiences in a country that has become my home, half way across the world from where I started my journey.
Why Colorado Christian University In 1979 I enlisted in the US Navy. I was in college and wanted to complete my education. While in the Navy I always said to myself I will finish college someday. I got married and it seem that that goal will never happen. Years when by, then in 2000 I when back to school, worked hard and received my Associate degree in Accounting. Work at the County of Orangeburg as Purchasing Clerk for 9 years. The goal of getting a BS degree can up. But it was on the back burner again. I just did not had the time, coaching high school football, job, Church all was too much at that time. BY this time I had Kids in college, seem like the dream was over then. In 2011 I enroll at Colorado Technical College, for a year did not complete.
