Having financial problems played a factor also in my returning to school. Being a single parent, with no support, I knew that I had to make some drastic changes. I have to joggle so many tasks each day and it can be hard. My family motivates me not to give up on my academic goals because I know it is something I have to do. Additionally, having a better income to support me and my family would be nice.
Success is to achieve goals, you have set. I have set certain goals I would like to achieve in my lifetime. Some of these goals are personal while others are professional. My professional goals in life are to find a good career that makes me happy, get a good education, and become wealthy enough to help my family and others.

There were prerequisites/factors to overcome before I could achieve my goal to attend and succeed in college and then find my dream job”. Financial aid was a major factor, because if I was not offered aid then I could not have afforded to go back to school on my own. Thankfully, I was offered aid so I pursued my desire. Another factor was to be able to find a college that offered assistance to students with “problems” who have not attended school for many years. I suffer from bipolar depression and want a better understanding of the “beautiful mind” or the “girl interrupted”.

Introduction “Why College Education is important to me?” Most people already know that going to get a College Education is very important; it opens many doors and provides many advantages and opportunities. Thinking about the compromise myself to going to college, maybe is not easy for me or for everyone, but it is even harder to take the determination to set a new goal for our life. First, start with a self-motivation and keeping in mind what is the best and right decision for my future. Advancing myself and obtaining an education, allows me not to be an ignorant and not get advantaged by evil people’s manipulation. One of the most important and obvious reasons to earn a College Degree is to increase my earning potential and better quality life for me and my family.
My Decision to get a College Degree Getting a college degree is one of the smartest decisions I could have made. Going back to school for me means determination and stay focused so that I will be successful. There are things I have and will continue to change in my life, in order to continue and to do my best in my college courses. Everyone should go to college. Going to college will help you find a good career to make a better life for your family.
That is when it hit me; and decided I needed to enroll back in school. This has an event that served me as an eye-opener and motivation. I have three children and they are all going to depend on me when they need help with homework or projects. I cannot accept and think of the idea of telling them no, especially knowing that there is something that I can do to prevent this. My husband and children have had a huge influence on my decision of returning back to school.
Second, it will offer motivation to my kids. Not only will the degree provide me with a better position to take part in my children’s classrooms assignments at school, I will similarly be helpful in the life choices they will want to pursue being a role model for them. Attempting to get a college education after marriage with children may also be challenging and may require me to put off those decisions to raise a family. However, currently with the enormously fast progress in technology, attaining an education will be made considerably easy. Patty Murray noted "A good education means learning to read, write and most importantly learn how to learn so that you can be whatever you want to be when you grow up”(Vavrus, 2002).
