Bernardino in Houston, TX

I could have just stopped here as a senior and finish with high school, but I am going to continue my education at college for a reason: to be the first in my family to go to college, and get a career that does not require physical labor. My parents have always worked since they were 15 years old and continue to do so in order to provide for us.

What really pushed me to go for college was what my father told me: “Work with your brain, not with your back.” He does not want me to work in life, but he wants me to have an education for me to work without using my body. I learned from him to make the best of my life, so college is where I need to go to accomplish my goal to be a computer engineer: only requires an educated brain.
