Two core values that I uphold are respect and education. I believe having an education can open many doors for our future. Today a high school education is not enough to receive a well-paying job, so that leads many people to head to college. The cost of a college education today is more expensive than back in the 1960s, so you find a lot of students graduating in debt. We all have different reasons to continue our education, some of us do it to receive a well-paying job or to further their knowledge in a practice they wish to pursue. Depending on our majors, a four-year college education is sometimes not enough, which makes some of us go on to get a higher education, whether it be a masters or PhD.
