Education gives us an awareness of the world around us, and turns it into something greater. It provides a viewpoint of looking at life inside us. It allows us to shape opinions and to have views on issues in life. College is important to me for a number of reasons, including lifelong relationships with others, long-term financial benefit, job stability, and overall success. I believe education is a necessity to be successful.

I want to go to college to get the experience. Attending college is going to challenge me academically and intellectually. I want to be surrounded by people who are as ambitious and want to learn as much as they can like me. The experience would introduce me to real-life situations and make me learn from them. When I go to college I want to pledge to a sorority. Being a part of many clubs and teams will make me become more social and active within the university. Mainly, the experience will help me figure out how to go about my future. After school I will not be depending on my family to support me, I want them to encourage me to start my life off right.

My educational goal is to challenge myself to do better at all times. To learn how to study better and maintain a high gpa. Looking forward, I plan to be a part of many organizations, one of them being a sorority. I plan to have my bachelors degree in psychology. After that I plan to take the MCAT test and pass to attend medical school. After medical school I will complete a residency of clinical training. When I complete training I will get licensed and board certified to be a psychiatrist. There I see myself working hard in a hospital and becoming the best psychiatrist to help others with their mental illnesses.

I am a graduate of Renaissance High School Class of 2020. There was no doubt that my future lies in the sciences. Some key factors that contributed to my decision was my curiosity for how the brain functions, my love for science, and taking the psychology class offered at my high school. I have always wanted to pursue a career in helping others ever since I was younger. I want to have a positive impact and make a difference in people's lives. I spend most of my time being productive and giving back to my community. For the past 2 years I have worked for a non-profit organization called Developing K.I.D.S. There I am a youth leader who teaches while incorporating fun activities into learning; to keep the youth knowledgeable during the summer. That job has taught me so much and I am grateful to be a part of the organization.

I am different from other applicants because I strive and work as hard as I can to achieve my goal. I am very active in my community. I am a team player and I am always focused. Over the years I have learned many life lessons that derived from participating in community events, being a participant and youth leader at Developing K.I.D.S and playing volleyball. The lesson I learned is to always have confidence in yourself most importantly. Teamwork is the key to being successful. Leadership has taught me to be decisive and to never stop learning. Sportsmanship taught me how to interact with others and be compassionate. These qualities helped me to be disciplined and to incorporate what I learn into my everyday life.
