Education is the strongest thing we could use to our advantage. For example, the power of education and what an educated person can do with all that knowledge at his dispose. With all that being said here are my three most important goals of my life that I see myself looking back and saying I finished them, which are to educate myself in U.S history throughout college, graduate with my Masters in History from U.T.R.G.V., And most important one is to become a professor in a college or university.
First of all, my initial goal is to educate myself in history through my college classes. Since I could I remember watching documentary’s with my dad about world war 2 and other type of things with the U.S. since I was little, it wasn’t until my junior year in high school that I gad U.S. history and automatically fell in love with it, most of the things we were taught where things I saw with my dad on documentary’s. Major portion of what I learned in my U.S. history class where things that I didn’t know for example how the Vietnam war was a waste of soldiers, how that cause the rise of the hippie. I just can’t believe how much U.S. history is over look.
Secondly, I would want to graduate from U.T.R.G.V. with a masters in history in the near future. The way I’m going to do that is by putting all my energy into college and try to learn as much as possible, although history has always been my cup of tea since early high school, there’s nothing more interesting for me then learning about the world and the impact the U.S. has had on it with its history and how on its road to become the world most progress nation in the world, how some events in U.S. history shook the world, and a lot of people take for granted what this nation had to go through to be where we are.
Finally, I would like to have my own classroom as in an instructor at ‘STC’ or ‘U.T.R.G.V.’ either one I’ll be more than happy to be an instructor showing and making people learn all about history and U.S. history more than anything, the thing that really makes me appreciate this nation is the history of it, how from ground it was build from starting at Jamestown to being the greatest nation in the world. I want my students to be as open minded and star struck about the rich history of their nation. There’s so much to teach and learn about the states, for example the great Spanish -American War of 1898 of the verge of the 20th century, how we helped the Cubans win the war and how we started to be for the first time as a World power as of before the Spanish-American war we were just seen as regular America with a weak military compare to other nations, now fast forward 118 years later and were have the strongest military in the face of this world.
In conclusion in my life my three biggest accomplishments are to educate myself as much as possible about history, graduate with a masters in “U.T.R.G.V”, and most important goal, to be an instructor in “STC” or “U.T.R.G.V”. It’s important to known your history so when you go out in the world we don’t repeat the same mistakes in other people have in history. Mark twain said “History doesn’t repeat itself, but it often rhymes.”
