Student, Cornell University, Class of 2017,
I'm currently working full time and attending school. I believe the person that attends Cornell University should be able to juggle many things and wear many hats. My focus is to finish my degree in order to continue my work as a community activist. I'm a woman living in Bronx, New York, my community is very poor and under served. We live in the biggest city in the world yet many people still live under the poverty line and go hungry each day. I believe that the students that attends my school should be able to think long term. He or she should stop and think how would my degree change my community. I am grateful to be given this opportunity to get an education and improve my community. Whenever we think of the college experience we think of drinking, late nights however we forget about older students and the students that cant have that luxury. It is important to look at the other students attending this institution.
