I have attended Mt. San Antonia College, El Camino, and finally I made my way to Los Angeles Southwest College. I’m not speaking to you to discourage you but to see you even stronger than before. No I did not go to a prestige community college, but I have learned that no matter what kinds of struggle I may have I will nerve believe the lie that have been implanted in my brain. To be look upon as a college reject is something that I full hearted disagree with, because I strongly believe that I can do at a prestige college I also can do at a poor community college, because I believe that the best educators are at southwest. After all this is where I get a complete understand of what I have to learn. A student coming with 100% from beginning to end, Underprivileged, underachieve with a determination to succeed.
I have given 100% in all my classes but the lies and deceits is what holds me back from achieving greatness. Coming to full conscious of my ability to go forward without doubt of being sure about right or wrong is the deception that has blinded me all of my life. To be label a college reject is beyond me because I have did everything that is require of me and then some more is beyond my understanding. That psychology equation does not work on me because I can see thought bureaucracy, but my mind, heart, and soul work as one so why try to separate those three when in fact knowing where I stand is the best solution possible.
Being underprivileged is not an excise of not being afforded the best education possible under the conditions that affect me personnel and financial does not add up to being a college reject, but highly achieve beyond measure. My struggles are just harder than other, but I have determined that in order to change the condition of my being I must stay commitment to change. So I have conclude that higher learn is my only answer to the madness that surround my life. Looking at the big picture, because I am a artist, and when I get threw painting this picture it going to be beautiful and all anyone could say when they look at this picture is nothing, because they would be looking in amazement. When all the odds were against me I overcame though hard work and determination.
A college reject is not determined by the college you attend, but by what I have learned regardless of the Teacher. I will not allow anything to hold me back from achieving my gold’s. And being underprivileged has given me a greater determination to succeed.
