The pain and agony of knowing that I might not be prepared for college classes is a weight I have bore on my shoulders. One of my goals has always been to lift the stress of college classes off my back and have the assurance that I am ready for the challenges that are ahead of me. Since day one of high school, being engaged while learning has been my biggest desire so that I am well prepared for the next step in life: college. Dual Enrollment English was exactly what I needed to be well prepared for college. All of my high school career, I had never known what it actually meant to do well and be ¨successful.¨ An abstract idea occurred to me, in room 201, as I was sitting in the front row of my Dual Enrollment English 111 class; this idea
I eventually came to my own senses and decided for myself that all my years of being in school, planning for my future, long hours of hard work and perseverance shouldn’t go to waste. I shouldn’t waste my own intelligence and give up on what’s important. For me, a lower class civilian, the American dream is very much alive and achievable. And it guarantees a better life for me in the future. I decided to go to college because although I knew I should continue my education, I never realized how important it was for my future and well-being to have that knowledge and use it to better use.
As long as I stay faithful to my goals, apply myself, and maintain this support behind me, I know I will beat the odds. I will have the career and life I have dreamed of and longed for. People can only find success if they put what they must into it.
I have always wanted to make good grades but I never really set any goals but, then I realized that setting academic goals are way more important than people realize . I then started to set goals like my sophomore year of high school after I did that it really helped me focus on my future and what I wanted for myself. My goals I think pushed me so much more academically they opened my eyes a little bit more. One Goal I set was to graduate High school with a Core 40 diploma, which I did, so that is one goal down and a bunch more to go. My senior year I started applying to college but my main goal was to make into Saint Mary-of-the Woods and when I received my acceptance letter I was ecstatic.
Not only am I in college now but I plan on earning two degrees. The opportunity to be able to do what I love everyday can only be achieved through education. I want to advance my life and help out others at the same time. I believe people learn just how important education is in different ways. It took me a six year break from college to understand that not only did I need an education to advance further in life but I also craved the learning experience.
High school was pointless to me because I’ve always had present my parents words and they’ve proved me those words are true. In order to success you just need to try and if you can’t success the first time try it once again but next time try harder, nothing in this world is impossible its just the wanting to accomplish things. Since day one of high school I knew what I wanted for myself. I would always turn in my assignments in time. I would be on time to every class, I knew what classes I need to focus on and I knew if I would take AP classes it would help my gpa and my ranking.
Me The Person Who am I? I would say I am a hardworking, dependable and committed individual I try my hardest on everything, even if I 'm not good at it or don’t know a thing about it. I am always willing to give it a shot and get out there and learn something new. My motivation to move forward with my career would be my family because they have always been there for me and want to see me succeed in life and I want to show them that they can have faith in me to be the best that I can be and be proud of me for trying to succeed in my career. The things I value the most would be my schooling because, without schooling, I wouldn 't be able to be in the health science and try and become a nurse, schooling to me is everything, especially Being
With God completely in our hearts we should not have any fear because he will lead us into the right direction. Strength in our lives comes from opening our hearts to Him and we shall have nothing to fear from our enemies that will step up to try and defeat us. Fear can be paralyzing. It is this fear that the author is trying to show us we shouldn't have due to the Lord being our light and salvation. No matter what we may come across in this world we should go into it with the utmost confidence for the Lord is there to lead us in the right direction.
I knew that I wanted to have a good career and I would be able to pursue my college dreams and wrestle in college. My original plans were to go to SUNY Cortland my first semester. Not knowing what I planned on doing at first, I applied to SUNY Cortland too late and my application wasn’t accepted due to how late it came in. Now, at TC3, I started pursuing my career and am taking business administration course... ... middle of paper ... ...ch makes perfect sense is that jobs with high paying salaries and jobs like a teacher, dentist, nurse, or lawyer all require you to have a college education. The United States gives everyone an opportunity to get a college degree.
I dream to be a counselor or an clinical service social worker. I want to help people who need someone there for them someone who can guide them or even just talk too. Another reason is because I would be the first in I would be the first in my family to go to college. I feel in some type of way I am setting an example for my parents and my brother that they too can go back to school. Lastly is simply because I love school.
