It was her mistake, so she is going to take on her responsibility, and be a great parent for her unborn child. She said, “If it was my choice i would have got pregnant after college” (Duval). Luckily, her boyfriend, her family and friends were unexpectedly supportive of this major change in Harley’s life. Everyone preached to Harley about how tough it would be with having a baby, she didn’t think anything of it. The only worry in their minds was Harley and her junior year of high school; hoping and expecting she would finish
Carla Wright My Return to School English Composition 1 Denya Cuiffo October 14, 2013 When we attend college as adults, we have expectations of what college will be or will not be. I decided to go back to school for quite a few reasons. The main factors for my returning to school includes my family and stability also plays big role in my returning to school. My reasons for going back to school is to gain communication skills, become a good role model for my children, if I decide to have any, gain independence and seek profitable employment that would be profitable for me. My father has always been my support system in my return to school.
A baby would make it all better. Once again, I was wrong! Things continued to worsen but I did not allow this to in any way affect my pregnancies. My daughters became my number one priority in life. I quit wearing make-up because becoming a mom became a full time job.
I made sure that I would have help around the house while I am going to school, then my oldest daughter told me that she would be so proud to see me succeed my goal. So I checked around for some colleges and I found Ashford University. Even though I will be doing my courses online I will still be a full-time student. I will be going to Ashford University for my Bachelors in Health Care
Amanda Bowman Being a College Going Mother Struggles of mothers attending college Mother obtaining degrees To inspire/discuss mothers to further their education Personal experience of being a mother/student My voice The joys of motherhood, from the time you find out your pregnant to the first cry of a newborn baby and everything on, are memories forever kept. Being a mother of two, I know that the key to being a good parent is to know your priorities, learn to sacrifice things, and have a positive outlook on life. I knew the choice to go to college and build a career was important to my children and to me. Soon coming to the realization I had to grow up fast because of the responsibility I was given. Motivation and confidence have been
I was never really encouraged to attempt to make my dreams a reality. Until recently, the most support I had received was “good luck”. Worse yet, were those who were quick to point out reasons why they thought it would be too difficult -too expensive, too time-consuming, etc. I know now that the challenges are part of the reasons why I want to be a nurse. I want to face challenges on a regular basis and overcome them so that I can continue to learn and grow.
Abraham Lincoln once said “Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.” I have been haunted by similar words, in my own head, for quite some time. I never finished college, yet I love to learn. I have always dreamed of completing a degree, owning a company, or working in an office. Now, given the opportunity, completing this degree will become my greatest achievement. I always feel that I have let myself down.
I always tell my kids that a college education is a key to success in life. I set myself as an example, after being out of school for so many years and then going back to college, takes a lot of motivation, dedication, and commitment. I want to better myself, my family, and to be able to say I accomplished my goal. Goals and accomplishments are two big priorities, which I value them exceedingly having the desire to reach them in life. In order to accomplish goals, a plan must be laid out.
All about Me Jennifer Webb COLL 100 I026 Fall 11 American Public University Eleanor Hewitt My name is Jennifer Webb and I am going to write an essay about why I decided to go back to school. I got tired trying to found a decent job, I wanted my daughters to follow in myself steps and go to college. I learned that most jobs are looking for some kind of college degree. I have been out of school for awhile and so I was a little nervous but after getting started I feel more comfortable with going to school. I want my daughters to always know that you can never get to old to learn new things.
I am pursuing a degree at ITT Tech because my girlfriend asked me what I was going to school for and I told her, I wanted to go to school for computer science or electrical engineering. I love computers, phone’s, updated gaming consoles, and new modern technology because that’s what I world is turning into. I told her I was going back to college this summer attending Longview Community College. The whole main reason for me even going to school is to better myself and for my kids. They need me to set an example for when they get older and it’s difficult to take care of kids when you’re working dead end jobs, living check to check.
