QUESTION
why would a person want to be the first in his/her family to go to college?
Hello.
could you please help me with my essay… I’m being asked why do I want to be the first person in my family to go to college.. what would u say?
thank you.

ANSWER
You should state the struggles of why other family member couldn’t. Maybe they had to go to work instead or couldn’t even afford to go, because they just weren’t that fortunate. And talk about how times were different for our grandparents and maybe even your parents. Some women used to have to take care of families and be homemakers. And now the opportunities are unlimited and it is a wise decision and you can’t really get anywhere without a degree these days especially due to the economy jobs are limited. It all together will be a big accomplishment for you and make your family proud, because you can be an inspiration to them. And it’s never to late for anyone to go back, I’ve heard of 80 year olds in college.
