- “graduate” the ESL program, specifically, get high grades (preferably A's) in both ESL 914 and 924
- get enough grants and scholarships to go to school full-time
- continue English (400)
- start business math or bookkeeping class
- start nutrition-related class
These short term goals and plans lead directly to my longer term goals of; speaking and writing English fluently, understanding business management, getting a certification in nutrition and, eventually, running my own food business. I plan on achieving on these goals by studying hard, receiving tutoring when needed and finding the grants and scholarships to do this full time. I don’t know all of the resources available to me to accomplish these goals but, right now, the most important resources I have are my teachers and my counselors.The two biggest obstacles I face are financial and intellectual. I think the financial obstacle is obvious. When I say “intellectual,” I mean that I am not used to being a student anymore. I am pretty sure that I will get use to being student again.
