How I Got into College
Throughout my life I have adapted to certain things that are truly unequal, unfair, and unjust. There has always been a mountain in the way of a goal or a dream. But the mountains of life arenít always there to make things difficult. They are there to make you fight for what you want. And I feel that you have to fight to succeed this day and age.
My fight is on for me to go on to college. I want to go to college more than anything in the world. The reason it is so important to me is I would like to be the first one to graduate from college in my family. I could then be a better role model for my younger siblings and for my son. I could then show them that I took all of the mountains, the inequalities, the unfairness, and the injustice and made it work for me. I could show them that it is possible for poor, black children to go to college. With faith, hard work, and perseverance anything is possible.
Anything can be achieved once you set your mind to it, and thatís just what I want to let them know. I think that if I can make it to college, I can always find ways to aid and assist my family getting there.
