Greatest Influence on My Life
Most people would point out to a life-changing experience or the coming of a person who helped them change their perspectives in life. My life changing experience was at Morehouse College, which I attended. Going to College can make or break a young person’s life. Thankfully for me, it helped me become a better person who can learn from what life has to offer and do what is necessary to make life better and grab opportunities as they come along.
At Morehouse College, one of the most important things I learned is citizenship. More than just enjoying freedom and privileges, I learned that society thrives on the sense of responsibility of citizens. From a carefree outlook on social life, I emerged from Morehouse College with a changed perspective on my responsibility as a responsible citizen. I can then use my talents and my skills in helping society become a better place.
Scholarship may seem daunting at times. The rigor, the time and the skills necessary may seem beneath us. Yet, I learned about scholarship and the need to become adept at what I do at Morehouse College. I have been a good reader but I have learned how to be become critical and analytical with what I read and what I write. Lastly, I have learned to harness leadership and influence people to become better persons and help them achieve their goals as well as the common goals they have agreed upon. I know that leadership skills will be needed as I move through life and my chosen career. But I continue learning. Nonetheless, the foundations and the experience I had at Morehouse College will guide me and help me become a better person and achieve my dreams and my ambitions in life.
