My name is Roberto J. Rios; I am
the first of three children in my family. I have two youngest sisters.
I live with both of my parents. My father works as a manager in an
auto parts business, and my mother ust started working as a dental
assistant. In our family we don't receive federal or state aid, even
when the money is not enough for us five. That's why I am so interested
in college, to support my family in the future and to give myself
a better life than the one I have now. We are a happy family, and
most of the times we have enough clothes to wear and possessions.
My community is a working class
area, with medium and low incomes. The Castle Park High area is a
combination of single families homes and apartments. I volunteer
at my local public library, by helping shelving books on the weekends.
At school I have been a member of the football club team and AVID,
which helps students to understand college life, and to prepare fot
In my college life I would like
to go to San Diego State University next fall. I plan to major in
psychology and become part of the crime department as a doctor in
the F.B.I. or the C.I.A. I have grat success in helping people with
their problems, especially friends or family members. That's why
I'm sure that I can be a doctor in psychology.
My overall grade point average
is 3.01 I am not happy with my grades; in my freshman year and sophomore
year, I did well but this past year as a junior I relly didn't work
that hard to keep my grades up. But I'm sure I will finish high school
much better than last year. Now I realize how important is to me
and for my future to go to college. In my spare time I like to be
with my friends, listen to rock music, and play football.
As I mentioned before, I am bery
interested in the field of psychology. Im not sure how though this
area is to be successful in, but I'll sure try my best, and work
as hard as I can. I have a dream to finish college, be the best person
I can be. I want to marry, and have children. But I want to give
a good life to my family, live in the best conditions, and I know
that to achieve that goal I have to pass college first. My parents
have always supported me, they have told me the values of college.
and now I can se the true value of college education.
