Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.
As I continue my education at the Doctorate level, I hope to combine my diverse and unique experiences to give back to my community. However, this impact will lessen as the amount of student loan debt I have incurred and will continue to incur is stifling. I will not be able to better serve the community as I will struggle to repay my student loans. Any debt relief is not only an investment in me but an investment in the communities that I will be better able to serve. I believe through my leadership skills and different cultural experiences that I could bring a unique perspective to the communities I serve. Regardless of the adversity I have and will face, I will continue as I have before, to make a conscious effort to understand the world, society and the human mind past my personal experiences with the hope that I will be able to make the world a better place at least minutely.
