Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.
The students were confused on the importance of post-graduate education as they had always been told that an undergraduate degree is the only necessary tool to excel in this world. After our conversation, I realized the misinformation provided to the minority youth and that we must guide students towards graduate education in order to create a better future. I believe that obtaining a graduate degree is the first step towards becoming a role model for future African-American students. As an African-American female, the corporate world has urged me to fight my way to the top and I plan to bring as many African-Americans as I can with me to the top. A graduate degree opens the door to excel in this world and I would love your key to help me unlock and access that world.
