heres my essay:
Many people have asked me what I want to do with my life and where I see myself in the next five years. I have seen this question asked to my peers and I have found that most of them have no idea how to answer this question. On the other hand, I have thought much about this and I know exactly what I want to do with my life, especially for the next four years at college. I have chosen Criminology as my choice of study and career and I know that there are no rewards in this field unless I work hard and strive to gain as much information on the subject as I can. This is only possible if I am admitted to the University of Florida and able pursue my studies in Criminology there. I am a highly motivated individual who really has high aspirations in life and I am very much motivated to study at a college level.
I want to attend University of Florida because I believe I can make a change. I have many family members and close family friends that either have been or are drug addicts and have had a life of crime. I have seen how drugs and crime have affected people's families and even their own lives. I love helping people and I want to be able to make a change. It hurts to see loved ones go to prison or die from their crimes or drug addictions and I believe no one deserves to know how that feels. Lots of people say that cops and other enforcement officers do very little to change lives and to help people but I want to be that change. I want to be able to help stop crime and drugs and save innocent lives and help my community and improve life in our society. I know how it feels to see loved ones lose everything they have and I have seen too many tears and I want to help end it and help others restart their lives onto the right path.
