What do I want to do with my wild and precious life? I am only human with many moments to live in this life. In this world, one has many choices, options and decisions. Growing up one learns and embraces right from wrong, but one is never satisfied with what he has. As young adults, one reaches a point in where one is destined to find the path that will lead one to that wild and precious life we all pursue. I am now at that point. If I had one shot to this wild and precious life; I will be that one person with the spontaneous, free, unique and authentic spirit fulfilled with the knowledge to be my best and accomplish every single thing I want to make in this precious journey. I want to be the one to go out there and discover the cure for cancer or the next medicine to ease the pain of a dying patient. Have the comfort and mobility of doing whatever I wish to accomplish. Create the magic of having my own family while enjoying all of those little things this journey brings along with it. To serve my country, that has given me the freedom and opportunities that I could not get anywhere else.
As a young adult and human that I am, I have many plans, hopes and dreams for a future. As a student, all these narrows down to one thing, which is to be the best student I could be at the college of my choice. I constantly hear many of my peers complain about their colleges. Their excuses are “I was chosen by them, how dare to say no” I often respond “No. You chose them and by all of their means than they chose you.” Only one has the ability to pick and choose what they want for their future. I want to be the best student I can be and still be happy with my choice, therefore I choose Pacific Lutheran University. I am convinced that at PLU I will achieve the skills necessary to become successful in the field of my choice, Nursing. I want to grow to be passionate and successful in my field, as PLU alumni Marisa Villagracia is about hers. At PLU, Marisa found the skills necessary that led her to build her future. Like her, I wish to achieve the same. Living in the East Coast all my life with the hardship of becoming an adult at such a young age. Being a witness to a mother whose struggles was bigger than her own aspirations. I just want a different future for myself. I am the first one in my family to graduate from high school and who is trying her best to make it into college. Wanting to be educated and having the knowledge to help others are some of the best skills I could learn. At PLU I wish to earn and receive skills such as teamwork, collaborations and networking. These skills along with many others will be the key to becoming a great Registered Nurse.
After earning a BSN, I would like to have the opportunity of working and serving my country through any branch of the Armed Forces. I would love to help those soldiers who are overseas helping to protect our country. I would also love to have my own foundation in order to help teenagers from minority groups get into the college of their choice. As part of a minority group myself, I have experience and recognize the hardships of being a well rounded- individual while still acknowledging your roots and culture. I want to live the American Dream. I want to be successful because I want to have a successful future for myself. I want to prove to the world that with struggles, hardships, family or no family one could become great at something and accomplish everything they want in life.
Whenever an assignment calls for an informational essay, start with an interesting hook (i.e., anecdote, rhetorical question, interesting quote) followed by a few bits of background information and a thesis statement.

Whenever an assignment calls for an informational essay, start with an interesting hook (i.e., anecdote, rhetorical question, interesting quote) followed by a few bits of background information and a thesis statement. In this case, you only have one paragraph to do this, so you can accomplish each one of the elements above in just three or four sentences. For example, you could talk about how you became interested in studying medicine and arrived at the thesis, which is that you want to be a doctor one day. After that, you could finish your essay by describing three or four goals you have once you become a doctor. Your explanation of those goals, and how you will accomplish them, could encompass three or four more sentences, which would round out a nice, full paragraph. It seems as though this assignment isn't asking you to do any research or cite any evidence, so you are free to write about your thoughts and feelings. However, organize those thoughts as discussed above so your communication is well-received and understood.
