A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. I often ask my father many times why he came to america. he always says the same thing for better education and more opportunities.
whatever he has done till today and will ever do is for my siblings and me. because of that i do not ask him anything else. this way i do not feel guilty of reminding him of his homeland india. after a hard life in india my father came here so he can give his children a good education and not give them hardship. i know there is no way i can pay him back for all he does.
that is why i want to fulfill his dreams. he wishes to see all his children happy and well settled after we start our careers. and i know i can make him happy in many other ways but i want to make him very happy by becoming a doctor. after he knows we are successful he will be relived and i will be too.Perhaps the most significant event or rather a turning point in my life was my coming to America. Since then, my entire life and my dreams were revolutionized.
Apart from the adjustments that I needed to make from moving to America from Africa, life here in America has both contrive and challenged me heavily into the a person I am today education is just one area in which america has opened its doors. america is full of different kinds of people and nationalities. i feel as if i am not the only one from a different culture. along with me there are millions of other people who live in two worlds. that is the good thing about america. this country gives chances to people to find their spot in this world.
i am just one out of a million. in america people can practice their traditions as individuals rather than just one nationality practicing the same tradition. in my family we have many traditions that are not like the traditions of other people. a common tradition is taking off our shoes when entering our homes.
when i go to my friends homes i sometimes forget they leave their shoes on and so i start to take off my shoes. then i remember so i just follow them into their homes like everything’s okay nothing went wrong. but when they come to my home they always take their shoes off because it is our tradition. and for that i respect them. also every night we sit together at the dinner table where homemade indian food is served.
we are vegetarians so there is no meat in the house. every night after dinner we sit in front of god and pray to him for safety happiness and for him to always be with us. Furthermore, due to the high education that I have received so far here in America and specifically at Columbus city schools has helped me to properly realize my dream, of which is to become a biomedical engineer. I now realize what I hope to accomplish through being a doctor. Therefore, as I have stressed before, education is an irreplaceable tool in improving the world today.
Following this further, I consider myself fortunate to become well cognizant of this basic understanding. Realizing that I am still a work in progress, it is my wish to transfer to your institute. your renown quality of high education is well known by many but by few who fully comprehend its uniqueness, considering myself those few, I strongly believe that I can be a positive asset to your institute. I have thoroughly done my search for a perfect school for me and I have learned that a liberal arts college is what I prefer mostly as oppose to a large university. I believe education becomes special and even unique when the relationship between the teachers and students is close one.
Far more importantly, I understand that the workload that teachers get from a rather large class affects, in turn how they teach their students. That being the case, the collaboration between your faculty and undergraduate students is very important to me. Henceforth, I seek the pride that one has from attending and obtaining education from the school that they lov
