I am sending in my applicaiton along with my personal statement tomm.
I was wondering if there was room for improvement.
Growing up on a farm, I was brought into this world with the initiative to be successful. However, that is all I received from my farming experience. As I grew older, I had come to realize, farming is not the occupation for me. As I entered my teen years, I developed a great interest in the field of computers. For once, I was fascinated by something that could expand my intelligence to no boundary. My fascination with computers and the initiative to be successful helped me determine that a career in technology was everything I dreamed for.
In my early teenage years, I met the son, of the man, my aunt married. He was of Spanish decent. At first, I was apprehensive of going to talk to him. Little did I know he would engage me into the world of computers. His knowledge of computers was so fascinating to me. After meeting him, my life became focused around the latest and greatest technology that came out. Instead of interacting with my friends on the weekends, I stayed at home to learn as much as I could about hardware, software, and networking.
As I progressed through the years of my high school life, I realized that I could take some courses to expand my knowledge within the field. During my junior year, I took web design. This class taught me the importance in representing your company over the Internet. Now, as a senior, I am taking an A+ certification computer repair and networking class along with an independent study in graphics design. I have to say; I look forward to going to school, due to the fact that a lot of my learning focuses in the field of technology.<br>
Both of my parents have lived the normal middle class life. Which, in all actual reality is ok, because they have done a great job of raising my brother and I. However, I dont want to live the normal middle class life. I have seen my parents struggle financial wise and I dont want to continue in those footsteps. I am willing to work as hard as possible to get the education I need. With this education, I hope to lead a successful life performing every day activities that I enjoy.
I have my whole life ahead of me; I want to make the right choices. I feel that attending ISU will expand my knowledge and passion for technology. I cannot grasp the thought of doing anything else. I have worked diligently during high school, with intentions of attending a respectable institution close to home, comforting my family and myself. I feel capable of fulfilling my aspirations by attending ISU.
