That one person who has had a significant amount of influence on my life and decision to go to Florida southern college would be my mother. She left her country of birth for a better life and attended college classes to gain her physical therapist license. She struggled somewhat with her English classes but made her way and achieved her goal. Her hard struggles and achievement has been a major influence to me. The hard work and dedication that she gave has made me realize that to get what you want you have to work as hard as you can no matter what gets in your way for you to achieve your goal. I would like to attend Florida Southern College to prove to my mom and to myself that I can work as hard as my mom did for the future life I want to gain and the experience I would like to obtain for your institution.
