Being the first person in my family to graduate from college was a great accomplishment for me. It has given me a sense of motivation which encourages me to challenge anything in life that I think can be achievable.
Being knowledgeable of my choices in terms of my career gives me a feeling that I can conquer anything in the career spectrum that’s needed for admission to the college of my choice, or for the college who accepts me.
Going to college means getting a higher education and a higher education will enable me to accomplish the things in life that I might not have had the opportunity to be accessible to; had I not decided to attend college.
Also, higher learning will enable me to get a higher salaried job to meet the economic challenges of the 21st century. A college education will increase my chances of getting a better paying job, and also increase my chances of getting promotions on a job. A college education will empower me and I feel that I will have more control of my expectations in life. Achieving a higher education can help me weather the adversities in life, for instance, during economic setbacks; having a degree can help when things in life does not turn out the way that you may have expected them to.
Having a college education will make me a more marketable person so when and if I lost a job, I could get another job sooner by having marketable skills. Having a college education will enable me to gain more valuable resources; therefore, I will have more connections during my tenure which will enable me to have more options in terms of job opportunities. Fellow instructors, professors, school administrators or fellow classmates can have a positive outlook on my future job prospects.
Receiving a college education will help me reach my respective career expectations. It will also increase my confidence knowing that I can face challenges or adversities or overwhelming workloads.
Last but not least, getting a college degree will earn me more money to meet the future economic challenges in the near future.
