When I started thinking about why education is so important, I remembered my school years; the grounding years of anyone's education. The first thing that strikes me about education is gain knowledge. Education gives us knowledge of the world around. It develops in us a take of looking at life. It helps us build opinions and have points of view on things in life. It teaches us how to lead life. Education is important because it prepares us with all that is needed to make our dreams come true. My generation was blessed to have a more organized and qualified educational structure then previous generations. My parents have accentuated the importance of having an education because they know; their lives would be different if they were given the same opportunities as I did. Ever since I was born my parents have pushed me along from one grade level to the next, always repeating the importance of completing my education. Even though they did not have a higher education, they were always willing to participate in my education either directly or indirectly. I had never actually thought about where I wanted to go to school or even what I wanted to pursue a degree in. Listening to my friends and how excited they were to attend a college really influenced my decision. I was very captivated with speaking English that I had thought it was something I'd like to do as well.
