Importance of Education

Education is very important for our lives. Without education people wouldn’t have their high-developed machine and would believe that the Earth is a planet around that all another planets are moving. Why people want to have their high education? As for me I have my reasons why I want to get high education. 

First reason I want to get high education is for career purpose. From the early age parents very often tell to their children that education is very important to find a good job.

Education gives me knowledge of the world around me, while opening doors to brilliant career opportunities.

The best way to reach career success is to map out a strategy and set goals.  College is a choice, it is the beginning of a life long journey that will shape and determine future choices, decisions and purposes. Education will provide me with skills, knowledge and will lead me to a productive lifestyle. Tidewater Community College is really a stepping-stone towards success. The reason why I am attending TCC is because, it fits my budget, and it was easy for me to get in by doing the placement test. It is also close to my home so I find it very convenient this way I save on gas, and stay with my parents so I do not have to pay for living. My career goal is to transfer to a four year university and finish my degree in Mechanical Engineering. It is important for me to succeed in college to reach my career goal. College will provide me with all the knowledge that is related to my field, and also help me understand what all mechanical engineers do in the future. Getting an engineering degree will...
