Although I have had no direct working experience on a farm, my father has worked on a farm his entire life. I currently work once a week on a dairy farm doing a variety of jobs, working however I can. My educational goal is to earn a degree in Communication Sciences and Disorders. I aspire to seize the educational opportunities that I am faced with, that my parents never had. Through earning a degree in communication sciences and disorders, I will be able to secure a successful future for myself and progress upward in my society. I believe that I am a good potential investment because I have experienced first hand what perseverance, hard work, and a dream can achieve. Through experiencing that, it has installed in me determination, a good work ethic, and tenacity. I am motivated to become more than my circumstances and accomplish the goal my parents placed in me; work hard, dream big, and earn a degree.
