Life Statement Example

In 3-5 sentences, please tell us your motivation and reason for earning your bachelor’s degree.

I started working when I was sixteen years old and have been at it for almost twenty-four years now. Looking back at the experiences I have garnered I can’t bring myself to regret the path that I took. While I’ve been very successful, I’ve come to a crossroad in my career, and have very purposely positioned myself to a place where I am able and ready to finish what I started more than twenty years ago. I feel like my education will have a direct benefit to how I am performing my job, and this shift in perception will allow me to place the importance on my education that it has always deserved.
