I have always loved reading, writing and learning. Growing up, my parents told me that going to college was the way to have security and be successful. Because they did not attend college, it was always a pressure to make sure I got a degree. I viewed going to college as a way to have a better, more stable, and happier life. I also have always wanted to help others, and viewed college as my way to do that. There will always be a small part of me motivated by the desire to prove others wrong, too.
