Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.
My education didn't prepare me explicitly for this field. There is so much more to learn and I am eager to discover it. Working in the field is not satisfying my hunger for knowledge- I get too caught up in the logistics of the job. I would love to have the wealth of information I crave so that I could be more impactful to the communities I serve. I believe my graduate degree will provide me with the education I want so that I am a specialist in nonprofit management. I'm looking to become an expert in the field, not just attend school to learn to read and write. There is a deep conviction in my family that education is imperative to progress, and I am honored and excited to be part of that progression.
