I had no goals, motivation, or perseverance when I graduated from Marple Newtown High School. Usually many students have these characteristics when graduating, but I was different. The thought of my future did not strike me. I was forced to attend classes in Delaware County Community College. Still with no direction, I lazily attended classes.
During my first semester at Delaware County Community College, I found many friends that were in the same circumstances as me. This made me realize how fortunate I was. Many people had to go here to make a living, while I lazily spent my time thinking about unimportant activities. This was a huge revelation for me. I began to get a grip on my future by actually trying in class and talking with my advisers on where I should go from here on out.
Originally I had planned to transfer to Temple University in the Spring of 2012, but I wanted to get out and transfer as soon as possible. My friends and family urged me to find something I would like to do for the rest of my life. Even though I was pushed relentlessly to find that one major I would pursue, I was completely grateful to them for worrying about my future. I recently found out on what I wanted to do in my life, I wanted to major in biology.
I feel that Temple University has everything I need. The school is in the city, where everything is lively. The school also provides a community not seen in most schools. This is where I could be most comfortable pursuing, and working hard to achieve my dream. My time in Delaware County Community College was not wasted, it made me realize how I want to go to Temple University, and reach after my dream.
