How has your hispanic heritage influenced your academic and personal long term goals?
I am what I am today because of my Hispanic heritage. What I am today is because of the great contributions from where I come from. I am proud to say that through my heritage I am able to value the beauty of life and approach it with a positive outlook rather than mumbling in one corner. This heritage teaches me to value the things I love to do especially with regards to my education, goals and aspirations, and towards my family.
I am a young individual who finds education very significant to man’s life; thus, I am very choosy with regards to the development of my education. I set goals for myself in order to be successful in everything I do. Because of my educational motivations and goals, I am more inspired to excel in any academic activities in order to achieve what my I am aiming for.
I am active both in academics and social works. I have joined in numerous extra curricular activities such as in organizations including clubs and excel on my academic subjects at the same time.
My Hispanic heritage teaches me to be goal-oriented. I am an extremely goal-oriented person. I am a persistent individual and never easily give up if things go wrong; thus, I try to figure out things and not just complain without taking action on it.
This heritage contributes a lot to my personality. My strongest personal characteristics are hard-working, persistence, and patience and most importantly I have good leadership. These characteristics have helped me do my best in pursuing my career goal no matter what difficulties have existed on my way. Moreover, I have the ability to manage time and energy very efficiently among commuting to school, helping my family, being a child to my parents, and a student. This ability is very important for me to achieve my career goal.
Moreover, I just realized that knowing who you are and where you come from are very important because these will guide you where you should be. I believed that I am one of a kind young person. In spite of my academic achievements, I can say that my feet are still on the ground. I don’t boast of what I have achieved but I am grateful to God that I have reached this far. No one should boast about it but instead, I should learn to share my blessings to those who need it. I can teach others of what I learn from my academics and extend a hand to those who are in need of my service. Moreover, this is what I perceive about myself and this is what other people think about me too. Not all people are being appreciative and thankful of what they have in life. Some of them would only be grateful when things go smoothly and when they can get the things they want.
But through the years and seasoned with testing and circumstances, I have learned that I should be grateful in every way; thus, thanking those people who have helped me shape my character, especially my heritage, not only those people who brought positive impacts in my life but including those people who have hurt me. It is so irony to be grateful for those people who have hurt me but to some degree, their negative actions toward me make me strong as an individual and learn to depend on God. I have learned, too, that I should not only be thankful during the times when my spirit is uplifted but as well as the time when I am also down because I believe that everything has a purpose why things happen and during those gloomy days of my life, I am able to ponder and see the true beauty of life; thus, showing me who really my friends are. At the same time, I take one step at a time until I fulfill my goals.
