Educational Inspiration Essay (1)
Everybody has a dream, everybody wants to be successful and to have a wonderful job and close the year with many zeros in their income. Someone thinks that there exists something to make the difference between one income to another, and that is going to University o go to college and got a degree. However, surveys show that a high percentage of students not finish their studies. However, what motivates a student to finish their career? In my case it is my father. He inspired me to be a successful student in three different ways: being an example, helping me to project myself and giving me life lesson of another person.
First, My Father is an example of how broke barriers and how far he has came. Medel was the first child of five who lived in poor rural city of El Salvador. Because he wanted keep study he left her mother and moved to the big city “San Salvador” and he enrolled to The National University of El Salvador where he was drawing portraits of student in the university corridor in order to pay the fees and something to live. Five years later, he becoming at the first professional of his family, he got his degree of Mechanical Engineer with honors and he was working at the university as a teacher. Before a prestigious company employed him as a regional manager, He kept study and got two master degrees. Because of his knowledge his paycheck was increased more and more. A few years later he bought his first house. He never spent his money on unnecessary stuffs. However, he always invests in education of himself or his daughters. My father focused on his finances and where he can invest in order to one day he will not have to work and maintain the same lifestyle and enjoy his free time. Because he started to learn about investments, he has financial freedom. Now Medel is 59 years old and because he never stopped to learn, he retired when he was 40. At the moment he is owner of many properties in El Salvador, California and now in Maryland, he spent his time doing that really wants coaching young investor, doing exercises and travel to visit his three beautiful daughters and grandchildren.
Second, my father helps me to project myself. I remember when I was at last year of high school he came to me and told “What do you want to study?” as average teenager I answered “I don’t know” he expected my answer and he continued “Can you give me a favor? Can you write in a piece of paper the answer of 3 simple questions and the date? I will give you two weeks max”. That simple questions
