There are many struggles when it comes to wanting to better yourself and to get out of a mundane job. A career is what I wanted in Elementary Education. I want to be a difference to kids who think they may never amount to a college degree or a successful career. I work full time and it never seems enough for trying to make it while going to school full time. I've sacrificed my time, sleep, social connections, etc. but I know I can do it. I save every extra penny I get because I have a goal to attend a University in Kansas state and to move there. It's a hard journey but if you put your mind to it and actively go after your goals, you too can pursue your dreams.
