My Journey Back To School

By Rose Joseph

Project Description

I'm looking to raise $2000 to cover a combination of tuition, books and general fees for my final year at NOVA Southeastern University.

My Journey: No one really knows the struggles a student faces when it comes to starting and completing a college degree. After years of promoting College Access to high schools students through organizations like ASPIRA of Florida I find myself 19 credits shy of completing my own degree. Having to drop out of school when you face finacial difficulties is not a easy decision to make, especially when you've spent so much energy encouraging others. I was fortunate to obtain my Associates in Medical Technology at Miami Dade College while balancing a full time job. I understand hardwork and dedication is key so I am determined to reach my goal by putting in 150% of my time for my educational goals.

While juggling a full time job and school my parent's health began to deteriorate. Due to this reason I had to drop out of the university for a few years to assist my siblings with my parents physcially and financially.  I made this decision because I fully understood the sacrifices my parents made themselves to afford me the life I live. At this point in my life I'm grateful that my parents are in fair health, I have a stable job and I'm mentally ready to tackle my educational goals. I am looking forward to getting back in college and finishing what I started years ago.

My Education Goal: I plan to get my Bachelors of Science in Pre-Medical Science and pursue my dream of finding a cure for various diseases. Then I will obtain my Medical degree in infectious diesease and start working for the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

I am ready to start my journey back into college. An educaton is something that can never be taken away and my degree will open many doors for a better future.
