What Motivates You To Seek A College Education Why Is Berea College A Good Choice For You What motivates me to seek a college education In addition, why Berea College is a good choice for me. December 16, 2000 The last couple of years have been a long bumpy ride for me, as they have for everyone my age. No matter what, everyone has experienced many of the same teenage circumstances as I have and has dealt with them in their own way. As a personal participant in this game, we call life, I would say I worked hard for and earned first place.
That is just my creative view on things. Too bad, not everyone sees it in the same light as I do. As a student, I am an active participant in my academic and extracurricular activities. My first priority has always been to make good grades and learn in school.
Although this is important to me, I also know that by participating in clubs, sports, and after school activities, I will become a well-rounded student. During the past years of my high school career I have participated and received awards in the following: Cheerleading (eight years), twice as captain, 97 -98 Varsity Letter in Cheerleading, 98 AIM scholar, Whos Who Among American Cheerleaders, and 98 Academic Excellence Award while participating in Virginia High School League Interscholastic Activities. I also belonged to the following clubs: S. A. D. D.
club (two years), second year as secretary, Pep Club, Varsity Club, Choir Club, and Computer Club. In the year 99 -00 I received awards in the following classes: Computer Applications, Spanish I, World Geography, and Advanced Algebra/Trigonometry. I also received an award for Most Encouraging Student. I currently belong to the Hiking and Outdoor Club, Ski Club, Pep Club, and Environmental Awareness Club. In addition, this year I participate in a program called Read With A Friend. In this program I, along with a group of other students, go to the near by elementary school to rea to a class of students from kindergarten to fifth grade.

In order to gain an understanding of independence and responsibility, I have held summer jobs in the preceding three years. I also worked to help myself financially in boarding school, insurance, a car, everyday necessities, and soon in college. My first summer job was at the Moonlit e Drive In Theater. My second was at McDonalds, and my past summer job was at Dairy Queen.
I also work currently at Dairy Queen during my long breaks from boarding school. I am thankful for these job experiences. They have prepared me mentally and financially. This is important in that I am now more mature and responsible; which helps me not to be weary of the future but to look forward to it. I am glad to have acquired a taste of what the real world has to offer. I have learned many lessons from my public high school, boarding school, and work experiences.
I am now ready to learn many more lessons through my college experience. Although, it has been tough, I have made it this far. I am prepared to excel and make it much further in the years to come with my college education. This evolving positive outlook has reassured me and has given me the motivation I need to become successful. I never give up. When I am determined to achieve, I shoot for the moon and land amongst the stars (unknown).
I hope that by reading this you will also see that I am prepared to embark on my journey to a new world, the world of Berea College.
