I was born in the Dominican Republic in January 1975. I came to the United States in March 1985. The following September I was registered at P. S # 40 in Jersey City as a bi-lingual student. I attended St. Mary’s H. S in Jersey City and my mother could not afford the tuition, so I had to go to work as a Filing Clerk for a Law Office, while at work I applied and studied and obtained my High School Diploma. I met someone and we lived together.
I had a boy born June 1997. I also have a girl born October 2003. I race my children and send them to school. I want my Children to be raised with moral believe and values.
Both my son who is now ten years old and my daughter who is four years old are bright and articulate. I am so blessed to have such wonderful, healthy children and, although I do have regrets like not finishing my Education before the children, my life has changed considerably and positively because they are in my life.
I want to continue my education because being a conformist is not an option, I want to achieve more in life; I am not satisfied with my life as it is now. I want to be ambitious, I want to take control of my life now; I don’t want to just be a mere existence.
A mediocre life existence is a life without purpose. I know what my purpose is in life and I will accomplish my goal to become a Teacher.
I want to make a positive difference in Children’s lives. I will exercise my academic options in becoming a Teacher once I complete my Associates Degree in Business Marketing. There are many reasons why I want to go back to school; first reason is for financial tability; second is to satisfy the desire for mental stimulation, so that I can be a role model and better Parent to my children.
In developing my goal plan I have many obstacles but I cannot let this obstacles hold me back. My life is a life full of circumstances and circumstances are not obstacles that I cannot conquer anymore, as I will stay committed and focused in achieving my goal. For now I need to be competent in Business Marketing to achieve promotion at work and financial stability in my current position as an Ocean Freight Forwarder/ Marketing and Sales Associate.
