Describe the world you come from
I am a single child in my family because of this I got much attention from my parents. My parents took education seriously because they knew it was the only key to my success in the future. I have had a perfect attendance record since first grade except for missing classes for special occasions, sports and performances. I learned to the play the piano at the age of six, I practiced every day and this helped me in being determined as well as establishing a good work ethic. I attended Beaumont High School for 4 years and maintained a grade point average of 3. 8. My father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease during my sophomore year in high school. My father’s sickness took a significant toll on my life. My grade point average fell drastically from a 3. 8 to a 3. 3. This was a major turning point in my life and as a teenager, I had to endure the mental and emotional stress relating to my father’s sickness. It was difficult for me to understand the situation because I was only a teenager and I was afraid what might happen to my father. As time progressed, I was able to overcome that situation and I began to refocus on my academics. I worked hard and raised my grade point average from a 3. 3 to a 3. 7.
I have always been interested in technology since I was a child. I took interest in learning about phones, computers and other technological devices because I believe technology is a way to improve human life. My interest in technology heightened when my father’s sickness got worse and the situation was becoming dire. I was responsible for taking care of my father because my mother works in Los Angeles. The responsibility of taking care of my father was difficult to bear, but I managed to pull through and did the best I could. When my father’s condition worsened, he experiences short term memory; he would forget something’s and when I watched him I wish there was a technology that existed and would heal him. I want to learn more about technology and use it for many purposes such as healing sicknesses and help in making the lives people more efficient, easier and faster. My dream of learning about technology has motivated me into the joining this field of study and to help not only my father, also make impacts in the lives of other people.
My relationship with my mother is still as strong, just like my childhood times. As a child, my mother spoiled me by giving me everything I wanted. Being her only child means a lot to her, and she did everything in her power to make sure I was happy at all times and never lonely as the only child. The love and care I have received from my parents is what motivates me to constantly challenge myself and become successful. As the only child of my parents it is my sole responsibility to take care of them when they are old, just like they took care of me as a child. The best thing I can do for my parents is to give them unconditional love and take care of them when they are old. It will be my honor as their only child to return that favor with an open heart.
I come from a hardworking family and as the only child, there are many requirements and responsibilities that I have to achieve for myself and family. I have excelled academically and I started playing the piano since I was 6 years old. The playing the piano at a young age whiles going to school enhanced my time management skills. I have built a strong work ethic from this activity and the desire to excel I what I do. I believe that my past life experiences and academic success has made me a better student and I believe I should be accepted to this University.
