Why I am Attending College I decided to go back to college to get further education. I wanted to set a good example for my kids and show them that their education is very important. My life has been an up and down hill battle until I went back to school. I have been out of school for eleven years now, so just imagine how I feel sitting back in a classroom. When I told my mom that I had decided to go back to school she was very proud of me and told me that I can do it as long as I tried hard enough.
My determination to succeed is my motivation makes me different in my family. Their lack of interest to further their education gives me that push to go forward. I always was driven to learn ever since I was a little girl. I excelled in everything that I set my mind to and education was one of them. I know the value and importance of having a good college education and how it will affect my future.
All I was worried about was my mom getting me to practice on time or being the first one out to recess to get the good swing, but once middle school came around I started thinking about grades and how I needed to start doing well in my writing. No matter how hard I tried I struggled to find what the teacher was really looking for and they would have no problem pointing that out to me, because I would also jump back in and try again. In fifth grade our class went to the annual ‘5th grade camp’ at Clear Lake for a week. Somewhere between the teamwork activities and journal entries caused something to click and I realized writing and stories aren’t just made up creativity coming from people’s heads, it was all built off experiences they have had in there lives. From then on when a writing assignment came up I would relate that topic to my life and twist events and experience to please my audience.
Coming from a big family I have seen certain family members struggle in life simply because they did not have an educational background. This has only motivated me to want to finish getting my degree so I can hopefully find a great career in the near future. Going through everything I did with my family in the past will benefit me as I begin this degree program also because when I finish I hope I will have inspired other members in my family to finish school also. Being African American has set me back in life a few times but every since I experienced that it has only made me more determined to finish school. This way, the next time I apply for a job they will be too impressed with my educational background to turn me
I’m more tardy than absent but when I am absent it’s either due to an appointment of some sort or it involves a family dilemma, in which missing school is the appropriate choice. I would say there isn’t much I can do at this time to improve my attendance. I think I could ask most of the staff and student body around Legacy about my behavior and personality and there would be nothing but positive things to say. It is like that everywhere go because I am exceptionally mature for my age an I’m respectful. Something that I’ve accomplished at Legacy this year that I’m proud of is the poem I wrote about the problems I was having at home.
Also, many of my own friends are leaving, and many new students are coming in. It will be a lot to handle, but I think I can handle it. I am going to have to try to remain the same guy I was before, and not entirely ignore my old friends and try to make new ones, like many others will be doing. I’m going to also have to try to not get too caught up in transitioning, and remember to think about God and ask Him for guidance in tough situations. In all, I really did enjoy this year, and I will try to be the same and do my best
