Student example uc transfer student essay

  1. 1. UC Transfer Essay During the summer of 2011, my passion for education was boosted by my experience at a local elementary school. My education had already helped me to escape the shadows of Plato’s Cave, to understand the importance of academic enlightenment; however, after having a remarkable experience helping students with reading and math in a program offered at Washington elementary school, I realized my career goal: I want to teach. Because of the help of teachers, I see life very differently; I see the possibilities of reaching my goals and becoming the first member of my family to earn a college diploma. My experience has inspired me to believe that education is the salvation of the youth in minority communities. I have a passion for promoting the importance of pursuing a college degree. I believe that education is the key to turning someone’s life around, just as it has done for me. Parents understand the importance of education for their children, but they need someone with experience to influence their children to go to college. A community working together helps young students learn that education is the key to success and change. The young student I tutored brought me joy because I saw him improving quickly. His mother also saw a change in his behavior. His mother said to me “Estoy contenta mirar a mi hijo feliz. Tú lo has ayudado mucho con su lectura y matemáticas.” I was pleased that she was happy to see her son’s improvements. At this point, I realized that education is the most wonderful gift that someone can receive. This has inspired me to continue my education, hopefully at UC Riverside and earn a college diploma in Spanish. In addition, it has inspired me to go to graduate school at UCR to complete a M.A. and Ph.D in Spanish and Latin American Literature and Cultural Studies.
