What do you think will be the most difficult part of college?
I think the most hardest part of college will be to have effective time management in keeping school and work balanced.
What is your dream and how do you plan to achieve your dream?
My dream is to make a modest living and to live a life without having to worry about money. I grew up in a home where my mother had major depression problems mostly due to money issues. We lived pay check to pay check, hoping we would have enough money to pay the rent and all of our other bills. When we came up short, my parents would get loans they could barely afford to pay back. We spent countless years in and out of different shelters until my om put my siblings and me into foster care. I plan to achieve my dream by learning the best way to handle and save the money I make, as well as by completing my college courses and getting a stable job. I don't want to be rich, but I do want to be able to provide for myself and even provide for my future family.
