After working in different jobs and not being satisfied in any of them I decided the time had come to make a change and get myself a career by adding to my education. The moment I made the decision to return to college and finish out the degree I had started and abandoned years before I could feel the energy and happiness running back into my body and mind. There are many options available for returning to college and I do have to work as well as study, but the knowledge that I will soon be qualified and have a certificate to prove I completed my degree will make it all worthwhile.
I put off returning to college as I tried desperately to make a better life for myself and my family, but eventually I realized I was never going to get out of low paying jobs without making a major change in my life. I now know that my education will provide the basis for the life my family want to lead and will give my children the chances I was not offered. Not only will it make it easy for me to live a better life, but getting my education has also given me a sense of confidence and responsibility that I did not have before to make me a better person.
