I hope my educational and career goals also satisfy my personal goals of becoming a successful individual with strong morals and goals, hoping to work with people and work in the field that helped me. As a student, I am strong-willed and hard-working. I am proud of the grades I have earned and the things I have accomplished thus far, especially in a difficult major such as kinesiology. Yet, I struggle to think of how I will ever pay off the debt I will accrue in undergraduate and graduate school. Thanks greatly to the financial support of my parents, I have the opportunity to further my education and achieve my educational goals.
I would love to have the opportunity to graduate from nursing, because I have a strong desire to help people and make a difference in the quality of their lives every day. What is also noteworthy about nursing is that there is no another job as rewarding as being a nurse. Each day I will have an impact on patients´ lives, and have the opportunity to save someone´s life. I think there is no reward greater than that. Searching in different schools, I found that this program has a bunch of resources not only solid basics of nursing theory , but also nursing practice as well as clinical experience that will give me the opportunity of been successful in different practice situations.
College 101 Why I chose to attend college: I chose to attend college because I have wanted to for many years now. I have always felt that going to college would help me to be able to fulfill my purpose in life. I have future plans to make a difference in the world, and for me personally I feel that college is a necessity to achieve this. I want to achieve my own personal goals of getting my Associates Degree from Lackawanna, then continuing on at another school to get my Bachelor’s Degree in social work. I have future plans of becoming a counselor or a life coach, I plan to make the final decision on which one when I have had a chance to practice as an intern; That is how I think I will learn better which one is more suitable for me personally.
I want to begin by saying that I have dreamed of getting a college education for a long time. Now is the time to make my dream a reality. Everyone in my family has a college degree. They have been an inspiration to me to go ahead and begin my journey. I work with children and I want my degree in early childhood education.
If it weren’t for these supporting and caring individuals in my life, I’m not sure what type of person I would be today. My parents have the primary responsibility for my growth, development and upbringing and continue to be a crucial figure in my teenage years. They have offered me something very valuable support, hope and most important, they believe in me. These qualities are the foundation of what I envision a mother and father who are blessed with a child from God would strive to establish in that child. It is very difficult to imagine that there are children who can grow up with little or no support in their lives.
Abstract For many people, the value of an education is equivalent to what may be achieved throughout those formative years and possibly high school and for others It has greater value to achieve college and beyond. However, a good solid education no matter the source is a foundation like no other and is necessary for nearly every event in life and the opportunity to explore a new journey of self discovery. THE VALUE OF AN EDUCATION AND WHAT IT MEANS TO ME An education, how often we hear this throughout every stage in life. An education can mean power to some, can be life affirming for others, and overall priceless to everyone, it’s so much more than earning a degree or an award that shows you have completed a particular academic goal. For me, it means so much more.
My family raised me to be a strong and good person and I love them so much, especially my mom. My mom has been my best friend ever since the day I was born. I would hate to lose her. Without her, I don’t know what I’d do since she's the one who brought me into this world. Also, my dad has always been there to help me make tough decisions and I love him a lot.
A college education will greatly improve my career options and financial wellbeing. It will give me the knowledge and skills to be successful in my chosen career field. Even though I have continued to learn throughout my life experiences, a formal education will equip me with the ability to form better opinions and expand points of view in everyday life. Furthermore, education will help me to build on my work ethic and values to develop a more mature stable future. College education will provide a clear direction that will help motivate me to make better decisions in all aspects of my life.

Michael Tighe Marianne Bird My Legacy I have thought about what stuck out at me from Randy’s Last Lecture. What I always get is the same thing, and that is not to get upset if things aren’t going your way. Make do with that you have and show others that you can still be as successful without some of your dreams becoming true. Randy Pausch’s left a legacy to his two sons and daughter for them to follow as they grow up. He left them being known as one of the nicest everyday-person to meet and how he always looked up, as he didn’t want to dwell on something that was out of his control.
