College Essay

College has always been far away, and scary for me. That was until my cousin started going to college she made me think it was less of a chance and more of a choice. My cousin told me “It is not a chance if you get into a good college, not a chance to get good grades, not a chance to have a bright future. It is a choice, a choice to work hard and show effort.” 

I have many big goals for my future and many small goals, but the goals that are closer for me now are to first get into a good college. I don’t know where I would like to go to college, but I do know that it has to have a good science program. That brings me to my second goal I want to become a marine biologist. I like animals, and I have always liked water so combining is ignited my passion for marine biology. My third major goal is to get a good job to support myself and hopefully later on in my life a family.

A college education will help me reach most of my goals by teaching me how I need to do something, and why it needs to be done that way. Having a college education will also land me higher paying jobs in the rising economy. By just having an education it can help me to make smarter choices for the future. If that includes going back to school, or having house it will still help me.

My inspiration to go to college is well I guess the world. The world is full of smart people with not a lot of confidence, and stupid people with a lot of confidence. People with confidence generally come out on top, so by going to college I can help the world become a much better place. I can inspire more of the smart people to come out and show off there talents instead of clocking them. I was mostly inspired by the world because it needs help, it needs saving. The world can’t save its self, but the people living in it can.

These are only a few of the reasons of why I want to go to college. College can help my complete my goals for the future or get on the way to completing those goals. A education will teach me life goals that I will need in my day to day life, and my inspiration will continue to burn as I learn more about the world.

  1. Very nice! I like how you started it off by writing about your cousin inspiring you. You might want to proofread it because I saw a couple mistakes where you had a lower-case "i" instead of a capitalized one.
