Describe the world you come from - for example, your family, community or school - and tell us how your world has shaped your dreams and aspirations.
The world I come from is Real Estate. Growing up and looking at houses was so fun for me, while my brother whined about going home and playing video games. Most times, my parents would take us to Toysr'us to buy us toys prior to the long journey. One time, I remember we went shopping for a toy and I couldn't decide what cabbage patch doll I should choose. The top contenders were between the one who eats, name Brittany, and another one who plays and name was Rachel. In the end I chose Brittany, but it was a hard decision. Now Brittany and I were ready to go look at houses with my parents. I was always the first one upstairs frantically searching each of the bedrooms seeing which one was destined to be mine. Once I found the one I liked I would go find my parents to tell them hurry and come look at the bedroom I picked out. I don't know how many rooms I claimed to be mine through out the various houses we previewed, but it taught me to live in the moment and to dream.
For my 17th birthday, my dad presented me with Real Estate classes, so I could earn my real estate license. My friends were shocked, but I was ecstatic. Recently I have been tailing along with my dad on broker caravans where Real Estate Agents and me preview the new homes that are on the market. When looking at these residences I soak up everything in eyesight. Now, instead of saying which room would be mine, I would think if I could work hard enough I could own an estate like this when I get older. One house in particular really caught my attention in the convent on the Rancho Santa Fe golf course. It was my dream house; I knew then that I could never settle for less. Some might think that I am materialistic, but why can't I look forward to something nice in life.
Being born into a family with my dad as a real estate broker and his girlfriend owning a real estate company has made me realize why I want to get my degree inn business. I love the art of negotiating deals; it's a high for me. My world has laid a foundation for my career, my family, and my future.(398)
