Personal/ Purpose Essay Introduction Life may seem to be perfect in the sight of friends, coworkers, and relatives but deep-down people don’t see the struggle, pain, and suffering as a deaf woman in this world. I was born hearing and became deaf at thirteen years old. I was hospitalized for two weeks while the hospital did research on the reason why I lost my hearing. I was diagnosed with bell’s palsy that caused the hearing lost and my life changed drastically. I was lost, confused, and scared but I stayed strong and continued to move forward with life by learning sign language and surrounding myself with the deaf community as I’ve grown. Marcus Mabry and I had similar feelings about going to college but different reasoning. Mabry felt guilt, helplessness, and embarrassment going to college and coming back home knowing that his family is struggling. I felt guilt, helplessness, and embarrassed going to a community college not too far from home because I knew I was different from everyone else and was the only student deaf in my classes, so I dropped out due to discomfort and embarrassment. The difference between me and Mabry is he went and lived his dream and completed college with those bad feelings he had and moved forward with his education. I told my parents I wanted to go to Gallaudet University, a deaf school in Washington, DC and my mom told me no. She wanted me close to her and home because of my condition and it made me feel helpless because I couldn’t make independent decisions for myself at the moment. Now that I am an adult and lived a more comfortable life being a deaf woman in this society, I’ve gained confidence and motivation to enroll in college to face the struggle of going to a non-deaf school. I am currently working at Maryland School of the Deaf as a teacher aid. My goal is to pursuit a nursing degree and change departments at my job. Working as a nurse in a deaf school will best suit me because I love to help people and I am very nurturing and patient with children. I want to feel completed from what been missing from my life. Having a higher education and completing a nursing degree will impact my upward mobility financially and set me up for a long-term career. My salary will go up a lot and my position will make me happy knowing I put the time in effort to complete a degree to get this position and be in a position helping children that are just like me and understands me. I already love what I do because I am able to help and assist deaf children and became more motivated when I found out with a bachelor’s degree your salary increases significantly. Sometimes sacrifices will be worth it in the end. Being in college will put a hold on doing things I love to do such as traveling often, working overtime, and hanging out with friends. The most important thing to me is being a mom first and I will be away from home more often attending school. Overall, my social life will have a change because I want to stay focused and earn my degree as soon as possible. The benefits of my education will outweigh the sacrifices that I am making because I will be making more money to provide for myself and family. I would be able to apply to my dream job and build a long-term career. I would feel more included, confident, and secure knowing I meet all of the qualifications that is needed for the job. I will have better skills at reading and writing and have an efficient understanding of my job. Most importantly the things I sacrificed will return after I meet my goals. I will start traveling often again, friends and family that miss me will rekindle and be super excited and happy with my accomplishments.
