Each day of my life, I live for Jesus Christ.” "My life wouldn't be the same without the people that have shaped and molded my character. They have given me everything I wanted and have helped me succeed, and for that, I am thankful. I think it is important to be humble, and remember all of the people that helped you get to where you are, whether it's your parents, your siblings, or God. Being thankful is being able to let go of all ideas of self-importance, and instead acknowledge everything in your life that has made it better. I am thankful to God and my family, and my friends, and even my teacher for help me improve my life."
Achieving success in college is not an easy thing to do. A handful of people succeed, but many fail and drop out. I have thought many times about dropping out, but realizing what college can do for me has helped me stay. I have sat down and thought about all the windows that would be opened for me once I have a degree. To achieve success in college, you need to schedule your time wisely, have strong self-discipline, and keep calm and try not to stress.
My mother is the most inspiring person in my life. The reason why I chose my mother is because she is really all I have. She is my motivation, she has always been there for me and helps me live through all my struggles even during the most difficult times in my life I knew I could turn to her. I grew up with a mother and a father, but my mother was the one who pushed me to my true potential and kept me focused on doing better in school. Overall, my mother has molded me into a better student and young man.
But since we are no longer considered as irresponsible children, it is just normal to see a teenager working because we are now responsible adults. Just like a student who works for scholarship, I am also a student working, not for scholarship, but for a greater cause, for my parent’s sake. My mom asked me I could help her out during the weekends. And because she has power over me, I have been influence to work and to assist her. At first, it was hard for me to work because for me, Saturday should be my rest day, but I still needed to wake up early and do the things that my mom asked me to do.
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.
It is nice to know that I can go to them with a problem and they always have time to listen. But the most important influence in my life is my family. We are very close and I know they will always be there to support me, just as they have been in the past. My parents have always taught me to be kind to others and treat people the way I would like to be treated. They have encouraged me to be independent and to be myself.
It is my belief that education is always a positive experience for anyone’s role in life, personal and professional. This educational experience will affect my personal role in a way that will be positive for both my family and I. I am extremely fortunate to have the family that I have. My spouse understands the goals that I have set for myself in the nursing field. He is committed to doing what is necessary to help assure that my goals are met. I also have two wonderful sons, (ages fifteen and twenty) that understands the importance of my career and what it means to me.
Only I think of the ‘luxury’ as being able to step into and attend college classes daily. Many students are denied the privilege to even be accepted to a university based on their income, ability to pay for tuition costs, and time juggling a full time job. While I agree that trade schools and training program degrees may be appropriate for many individuals, I personally think that one obtains a well-rounded education when taking classes in the Liberal Arts and can obtain more ‘real world’ training if laid off from employment and forced to take an unfamiliar job. Many need to be able to continue to provide for themselves, and often a family with no advisement or help from others. I agree again with Ungar on his theory that “it is often difficult to explain the advantages of a liberal-arts education to people from other cultures, where it is common to
“Never Giving Up” By: Katherine Meter Professor Betty Nazarian ENGL092 My children, parents and friends are a really important part of my life. They have given me the confident and motivation to never give up on my goals. They all have been there for me in the good times and the bad. The last couple of years in my life have been rough ones. It first started when my father became ill and I had to take care of him.
It is never enough to me to just tell them how much I love them. I especially try to stay with my grandparents as much as possible because having them alive and close to me is a blessing from Cabrera 2 God. My friends as well as my family have a special place in my heart. I am always there for them whenever they need a
