Sample 1st Paragraph, School Counseling, Child of Mexican immigrants
I hope to earn the MS Degree in School Counseling and Pupil Personnel Services at California State University Long Beach in preparation for becoming certified as a school counselor in the State of California. Born in LA to immigrant, Mexican parents. This had a great impact on my own education and left me hungry for in-depth study of the education of children whose parents are undocumented immigrants. As a child of undocumented immigrants, and thus almost as much Mexican as I am American, I will be fortunate to rise socially to the position of school counselor. I am highly motivated to do so because I see this as the best way to address the ills associated with a general discrimination that I have always seen around me growing up in Southern California, and to which I myself was subjected – a general malaise in which the Mexican/Latino, for a variety of complex reasons, is seen as somehow fundamentally inferior to his Anglo counterpart.
