What Does Education Mean To Me?
In the past, education has a lot of mixed feelings for me. I had experienced both good and bad memories. When I was growing, I was raised by my mother as a single parent. At that time, people has discriminations against family who has divorced or separated parents. They made me feel like I do not belong only because my parents are separated. They thought that because my parents were separated that I am going to have the same kind of family when I get married.
I also grew up in a country where every parents' goal is to be able to send their children to college for them to have a college degree. My mother did her best to be able to send me to college and I love and thank her so much for that
Grade school were ok. It was something that we were expected to do, to go to school. High school were great and not so great. It was in high school were I fell in love and got hurt. It was in high school were brand named and expensive things are very important to have. It was in high school were some kids were so mean to some kids. But, it was also in high school where I had a great time with my friends, where we had great memories.
Education for me is very important in my life now. It is not something that I am expected to do anymore, but rather something that I wanted to do for my personal and professional development. I am going back to school for my family, to be able to afford a great life for them. I wish I could turn the clock back and do great in school so that I did not have to go back to school again. It is very hard to go back to school at this time being married, having a child, having a lot of pets to take care of, and a house to manage. Over all, I still feel fulfilled knowing that I am trying to pursue my dream of finishing my degree.
Education for me in the future will be a major accomplishment in my life personally and professionally. When I finished my degree, I will definitely can say that I have accomplished something that I wanted to do very much for me and my family.
