As a child, I remember standing on my tip toes peering over a tall cardboard house made with bike boxes, to get a glimpse of my dad while he sold a mountain bike. My parents owned this bike shop for only one year when I was born - I came out with a shop apron around my neck and a wrench in hand. After sixteen years of helping out in the bike shop I have obtained priceless business knowledge and experience. Neither of my parents have a college degree, therefore I feel they are limited in their expansion abilities. I sometimes wish that I could have more business knowledge so I can better assist them. This is one reason why I want to obtain a business degree. Hopefully a college education will guide me to become the CEO of a major corporation. I know the importance of a college degree in today’s society through personal experience. I take pride in setting very high goals. I like challenges and I push myself to go beyond expectations. I have a passionate drive for success and a thirst for knowledge. By being a diligent, hardworking student I have no doubt that I will be able to persevere through all obstacles in the road ahead. My family, friends, and teachers have given me tremendous help and support that has done more than enough to prepare me for the next stage of my life, and I will never forget them throughout my journey.
