Why should I go get an education beyond highschool? Not because anyone is pressuring me to and not because of a high paying job. But because of the experience and because me, and you both have the privilege to. A few of my points for getting an education beyond highschool is for the experience, culture, people, and knowledge. I want to experience all of the fun clubs, activities, or events that on happening on the campus. So many different kind of people with so different backgrounds, culture, and ethnicities. That could be a good thing or bad thing depending on how you look at it. I’ve heard many stories of life long lasting friendships bonding because of college or somewhere else besides highschool. That is probably one of the more important reason why I want to get a higher education. And last but not least is for the knowledge it provides. Do many things to learn and experience first hand and that really intrigues me. Anyways thanks for coming to my TED Talk and have a nice day or night 🙂

At first you would think, “Great. Summer school.” But that’s not what this program is. This program consists of meeting new people, learning about your future goals and having fun. During this program, we learned how the police force works and some of the actions they would take in dire situations. All of us also became CPR Certified in one day! Along with a field trip to the Shasta Dam, we got catered by a delicious taco truck. We all got to know one another and have fun eating tacos with an amazing view.
During the second week, students got to stay in real college dorms, have lake days, and even go rafting. We all learned about public speaking and shared our future careers with other students and worked together with people from the same field of work to create a presentation. We were given tasty drinks & snacks during those hot summer days. It was great spending time with new people and learning so much about them.
I wish to pursue this career because being a chef means you alone, are master of your kitchen, and what you say goes. You are judged by each and every plate that goes out of your kitchen, and it is a responsibility that you thrive upon. There are very few jobs where there is so much freedom to operate as individually and creatively as that of a chef. My dad influenced me because he owned a restaurant and I was able to grow up in that business. I would always go and watch him cook, help around the kitchen and make people happy by serving out delicious food. I was always up in or around restaurants because my dad’s side of the family owned a lot whether it was local or out of town and they still do. My dad and I are constantly in kitchens and exploring other restaurants. Everyone who owns a mexican restaurant knows of my dad or his family. This food is apart of me and I want to carry on this legacy of my family.
