Persuasive essay

     As many students begin to graduate from high school, it comes the time when they must make a very important decision. They must decide where they would like to attend college. When colleges receive applications, the applications are looked over thoroughly in order to insure that those accepted into the college or university are properly equipped with the skills that they will need when they begin their journey through a post secondary education. I deserve to attend the university of my choice because I am a dedicated student that will devote all of her time to her education and will strive to be the best that I can be.

     During high school I came across situations in which I had to sacrifice my free time in order to complete my assignments in order to receive an acceptable grade. Many of times I was invited to parties or events in which I would be around a large amount of my friends. Due to many projects or assignments given to me by my teachers, I was forced to stay home in order to complete these tasks. Although it was not very pleasant, I complied. I know that my education in extremely important in shaping my future. My education will pave the way of the great opportunities that I may have.

     A very important teacher taught me a great lesson. He always encouraged us to do our absolute best when it came to anything in life. Assignments must be precise. “The lazy man works twice,” was more than likely his favorite motto to live by. “Laziness” was not acceptable therefore we were required to turn in work that was acceptable and showed effort. This lesson helped me extremely through the rest of my years in high school. It constantly encouraged me to do everything that I can in order to make great work. Through this lesson, it helped me in receiving many recognitions and achievements.

     In order to be “college ready”, a person must have many different skills that shows their dedication to their work. These skills are not only important but predict a person's compatibility when in a post secondary environment. I strongly believe that I display the traits that prove my abilities when entering John Hopkins University.
