People who have college education have the potential to better paying jobs than those without. As long as I have memory I have wanted to attend college and get career rather than a job.
At age ten when the neighborhood children were outside playing, I would be inside reading a book. Even though they invited me to play with them, they quickly stopped asking because they thought that I was too serious, I always come to play with my book, everyone decided I was boring; and I was quite happy to be left alone. I thought that if I were going to going to go to college I needed to become studious at an early age. My reading made me an intelligent child beyond my years and I was also a very curious child, consequently, I made good grades throughout middle and high school. While I was in high school I started a college search; because I wanted to get a bachelor’s degree from a good college. My investigation led me to the college I am now attending and I choose it because its success rate is high. However, after my first year in college my dream changed for the better; I decided that I would like achieve a master’s degree, hence my reason for applying to your university.
During my first year in college, I embarked upon a new quest. My search was to find the best university that matches my career goal. Once I am accepted to your university, I intend to apply for the position as a professor assistant while I pursue my degree, I am not applying for this position because of the pay, I know that that is just a stipend, I would like to do it because of the experience I will gain. When I enter the working world I want to be totally equipped.. When I have paid off my student loan and have saved enough money I will return to school to complete my doctorate.
I am a responsible person and I am not one of those students who go to college to leave home and party. I embark on my education like I have done with every challenge in my life, focused, determined and completely committed. I am an honorable person and if I gave my word to attract any task, I do not need a reminder. As far as I am concerned a person’s behavior is his or her reputation; it cannot be bought but it can easily be tarnished; and I desire to uphold my good reputation as long as I live.
Henry Longfellow says: “The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slep,t were toiling upward in the night.” This is my motto and it will continue to be my motto as I pursue my education.
