A second question that is commonly asked in Financial Aid and Scholarship applications is, “Why is college important to you?”

When answering this question, my fear would be sounding like everyone else. I feel like it is a typical answer yet honest to say that you want to do it for your family and yourself. College is more than an education or a paper that says you are certified in a specific field – for me it is a chance to say that I am a hard worker and that I want to make the most of myself. I believe it can open up so many different doors for me and give me a better future for myself, my family, and my potential future family.

Personally, college is important to me because I love to learn. I am curious about the world, want to know everything, and understand the universe. I know I want to pursue a Doctorate and an MBA someday. However, right now my passion lies with Education and helping others find the gift of literacy, which is why I want to pursue a Masters in Education with an Emphasis in Reading.
