I strongly believe that having a good education and common sense are some of the most important qualities in life. In my household I was always taught how important getting an education was. From an early age I started to believe how important getting an education was even though I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life until the end of my sophomore year in high school. My parents never went to college right after high school so they made sure I had the best chance of going to college. Even a decent education is good to have. It doesn’t make you look stupid for not knowing something that every adult should know. For example, knowing how to speak fluently and properly.

My parents made sure that I was going to some of the better schools growing up. All three of the schools that I went to had teachers that pushed me past my limits to help me grow and when a teacher actually cares about their students it really helps them know the value of an education. I had to make sure that all of my homework was done before I go outside and play with friends or play any video games.

Once again I hated my parents for this and later figured out it was for the best of me and in the long run it really helped me as classes got harder since I did so well in the previous classes.

My parents always pushed me to take the harder class and not take the easy way out with my classes. I was also taught to find something that I’m good at and keep doing that and that’s what I did.

Earning a college degree will earn me more money than just my High school diploma. I want to be able to comfortable be able to raise a family and not have to worry about the expenses. Most family’s where both parents do not have an education cannot provide the resources necessary to give a child a good education. I do not want this to be the case for me I want to give my future child every opportunity to succeed in life and the only way I see that possible is for me to finish college. Some people will argue that college is not right for them or complain that they don’t understand the class. That may be true but it is either because they don’t want to put the effort in to it or that from a young age they never believed in education so they get behind and when they realize the importance of getting an education it’s too late. I was lucky that my parents taught me at a young age how important education was. I have had many of reasons for why I believe that getting an education is very important in life. Some of these reasons have to do with how I was raised and my core values as a person. I am truly grateful to my parents for teaching my how important an education is and to all my teachers who helped me get to where I am today. I truly believe in the importance of an education and I will never stop expanding my knowledge to new
