November 7, 2012
Often times I wondered what my life would have been like for a long time if I had finished college. I thought about how much advance in life I should have been. During the 1970’s there were so many distractions in my life and I was not ready for college. In this essay I want to talk about the respect, career change, ability to help people as benefits and the tranistion I made in my decision to return to college.
I am proud and encouraged by my three daughters who have college degrees. My oldest daughter Cassandra is a Speech Pathology, who works for the Health department. She is really a focus young lady. Melissa is registered nurse who had her first baby at 15 years of age. She did not let having a child stop her. Marquita has an Associate Degree in management. Patricia Copeland, my wife, has graduated from Ashford University. Patricia said, “You should go back to College.” I tell you, just a few words of encouragement goes a long way. Now, I am attending Ashford University earning a degree in Applied Behavioral Science. I am surrounded by family member earning college degrees.
The benefits of me earning a college degree are over and beyond measure in this world having enough money is important fact of life. I believe with a higher level of education I will feel more satisfied with my life, than I do with just a high school diploma and few hours in college. Earning a college degree in Applied Behavioral Science will boost my confidence and respect. Doors that are close will be opening up for me because of a college degree. A college degree will say to employers that I am dependable, able to read and able to communicate clearly, both spoken words and writing. The benefit of my college degree will be an important asset in starting my new career in the education industry and the health industry
