Everyone has their own story; everyone has their own perspective.
I am a motivated individual who worked hard through college just to pay for it.
Education has become very expensive in the last few years, and has become a privilege for people to attend. For some people the money isn't a problem, this may be due to inheritance or from their parent's hard work over the years.
For me getting into college was a challenge. I didn't mind, because I knew that it would be worth the experience, and that having the degree would open up opportunities for me in the future towards my dream job.
So, I set out and got a job in the hospitality industry which is related to my bachelors degree as it showed experience in the field. It gave me a taster of what the industry was actually like and I worked out that I wanted a career in this field. I worked full time, five days a week and saved up as much money as I could. There were sacrifices I made along the way. I wasn't going out drinking or shopping with my friends, but I knew it was all going to be worth it in the long run. I had a goal to work towards and I was going to achieve it.
My motivating factors for investing into my college degree is to achieve my future career vision.
