When I first got accepted to York College by the Seek Program, I was happy to be a part of the SEEK family as a student with so many benefits that SEEK program has to offer that no other school has to offer the same benefits. What was ironic during the same time was that the person who is in charge of the SEEK program as a whole told me in a email after a few days that I was not accepted because my passport was expired so I had to do the whole process all over again and I even had to attend an orientation where I was supposed to write 2 required essays of why I chose to be here at York College and how will I contribute to the SEEK program as a student and to the whole school. And when I was starting my first college semester @ 8/27 and this was my first day of classes and I was a little nervous as well as everyone would be when they themselves would be starting a new beginning of their life way different from high school and slowly getting used to being a part of York College as a whole. And slowly when I began to adjust to my first year of freshman life as well as everyone else, I would go to all of my classes in which I was so thrilled because I would see so many familiar faces and friends who happened to be my classmates who were here for the same reason to do well overall and get rid of their general requirements so they could be mainly focused on their major. And when it was my second semester at York College as a freshman, I would be also be thrilled to come back and meet my new professors, and see what was expected towards the end of the semester and possibly meet new friends.
I personally as well as my brothers truly believe in the concept of “ The American Dream” , or the start of a new beginning, my parents life and our life deals with this concept of a new beginning where in the beginning my grandmother would be so proud of my mom for graduating college and so close to making her parents proud, and this is what me and my brother try to keep in mind and do as a result to make my mom and dad proud as a result of all of our efforts to be happy in the supposedly career we are interested in the upcoming years. My focus in life has to do with Sociology as a whole, but there are different fields in it which I am still not quite sure which one I am really interested in. And I am still not sure whether I will transfer to a better college so this is why I am trying to work hard and ace all my classes and having a good overall GPA. And even though through my years at Francis Lewis High School, I feel like I didn’t do such a good job in my part in becoming an ideal or an successful student and I will try to overcome this obstacle by not doing the same mistake and I always learned something through my years as being a part of my family and I really want to contribute to being there for my dad along with my brothers in taking care of my father in the near future by trying to work twice as hard than my brothers. I am also happy for being involved in the Human Resources club and Entrepreneurship club, so it can help me more with my future.
