College of Southern Nevada -
Growing up I saw surrounded by stories of how my father seized every opportunity that he was presented with. He always made sure I remembered the one man that made all of his dreams come true Ronald Reagan. During Ronald Reagan’s Presidency he declared an amnesty that allowed my father to become a citizen and later allowed my mother to become one as well. This simple fact has always made me grateful for the struggles my parents faced to ensure that my birthplace would be the United States. My parents were not able to finish their schooling, I could see that it took a toll on them when I needed help with my homework and they seemed at a loss for words on how to guide me. I promised my parents at an early age that I would be the first in my family to attend college. Through all of the trials and tribulations I have had to face I am proud to say that I came through. I now realize that I want a career that will allow me to help others in my community by giving them the resources they need to succeed. I will one day become a politician that is not corrupt. I will become a strong leader like the ones I grew up admiring.
