Persuasive Essay

"The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others"(Albert Schweitzer). I have always believed that if you can help someone, then help them because there's a chance that nobody will. I deserve to attend the university of my choice because I want to help others in the future, I am a hard worker, and I want to continue learning about what I love.

Ever since I was little I was the "teacher's pet". I always asked if he or she needed help or if I could do anything for them. I didn't mind being called the "teacher's pet" because I knew that I was making someone happy. The little things do count, but I want to do more. I want to attend a great nursing college that will let me study what I love and help others at the same time.

I am a hard worker and I know that I need to have high grades to get into college. I will work hard and long to achieve my goals. I will put as much effort as I can into my work and as long as I can do that, I believe I should get into my college of choice. Any college that has hardworking students will look great because they have the people that are committed to their future.

I have always loved science ever since I can remember. What organisms are made of and how we can survive intrigues me. I alway want to know how how something works, how to fix it, and why it's important. Most ten year olds watch cartoons and shows on Disney Channel or Nickelodeon, but I was always watching shows on the world's deadliest animals and how the people were treated after being attacked. I was never repulsed by how ugly the wounds were. I just felt curiosity. I wanted to know what was broken or torn and if the person got help.

In conclusion, I believe that I should go to the university of my choice because I want to help the sick or wounded  in the future. I would work hard in order to be the best that I can be and I would be doing something that I love almost every day.
