Debt is something no one wants to happen. No one wants to be a victim of debt; however, sometimes they cannot avoid it because of their situations. I came to the United States of America when I was fourteen years of age. My brother was in college at the time I arrived to America. My parent had been sending money for my brother to go to college here in America, and it cost so much of money.
I intend to graduate in summer 2018. Post-graduation I will be earning $90,000 working as an Assistant professor at University of Michigan. I will exchange my old car with a new car (2017 Range Rover) on EMI bases for 36 months. I also plane to move to a bigger 2BHK premium fully furnished apartment. I will also start re paying my education loan over next 2 years.
I was afraid to stay an extra year to obtain my second degree. I was scared that my great grandmother wouldn’t be able to see me graduate because as the years went by she got sicker. I was out here trying to focus on my education and my family wouldn’t tell me rather or not she was getting better or worse. They wanted me to stay focused on what was in front of me. I was supposed to graduate May 2015 with my degree in accounting but I decided not to be afraid and I picked up my degree in management with the mind set she would hang in for one more year.
I was taking my time with my decision and my parents were not happy that I was home instead of joining college. They then asked me to take A-Levels in law and business which I reluctantly agreed to in order to please them and get them off my back. Shortly after enrolling, I realized I found law really tough but I was determined to not waste my parents money so I persevered on. Fast-forward two years later, Im still trying to pass my Law papers. Finally I decided to tell my parents that I could not do this course anymore and they agreed.
Many years ago I remember my parents telling me that in order for me to become successful a college education was a must. They always told me that if I wasn’t in school I could no longer live at home. Both of my parents attended college but neither of them finished. They did not want me to go down that same road because they really regret not getting their degrees. My grades in elementary school were poor because I had trouble paying attention to things that were not challenging.
I yelled at them, ignored them, and occasionally did the opposite they told me too. At the time, I thought that made me better than them, but in the end, it got me nowhere. Soon I entered high school and my bratty preteen-self calmed down. However, my parents became stricter on my grades because there was a big milestone that would be coming up in a few years, getting accepted into college. My parents made it very clear that if I did not get a large scholarship to any university, I would have to go to the local community college.
After summer break I will either continue on at MSB for my Masters in Business Administration with a Minor in Marketing or transferring the University of Minnesota for my Masters in Adult Education. After my Masters Degree is complete I will decide at that time if I wish to continue on and achieve my Ph.D. Career Goals: I have narrowed in on three main career goals to complete at this time. First, I plan on staying at my current job at the Mayo Clinic as a QA Publication Specialist until my above educational goals are complete. It is important for me to stay with my current employer throughout my educational goals since my employer offers tuition reimbursement. This reimbursement is offered to every employee on a yearly basis.
I feel that this is a result of the gender stereotype that men are leaders and woman are not. I am currently working towards a business degree which I plan to use to transfer to law school. I would love to be a judge one day. My own Grandfather told me the judges stand (or any other official position) is no place for a woman. My Mother and Grandmother where pretty upset with me for going to college because they feel that it takes away from my family.
I was upset after graduating high school right at the age of seventeen, my parents were too afraid to let me apply to big Universities far away from home. My parents knew I was clueless about life, but knew I wanted to get a college degree. My mother recommended Lone Star College to me, since she attended there when she
For many high schoolers who have been accepted to colleges they have shied away from federal loans to pay for school and ultimately end up not attending any higher education and if they do most end up not being able to pay for it and having to resort to dropping out. I myself never feared loans. Yes, I do stress about the fact that I will have to pay for them at one point. But I know I need an education and having them will be the only way I get that education I need to be successful and have a better future. In the U.S certain people have begun to ...
