My Past 3 Ten years ago I had set forth my goals. I was a freshman in college and had no worries. Who would have known what was in stored for me? Now it’s 2011 and I have yet to have accomplished my goal that started that September. In life we go through experiences that shape us into who we become. We as individuals learn from these experiences from our childhood to our adulthood. In this paper you will read about my personal, educational and professional experiences as well as my future goals. I will discuss things from my early childhood to my present stage in life. I will analyze my experiences and goals by using the theories on adult development that we have learned from our class discussions. “Family development theory focuses on changes over time in family structure, roles of family members, developmental tasks, stressors and crises, and adaptive and maladaptive coping mechanisms” (Eriksonian Developmental Stages , 2004). I agree with this quote because our roles change as we grow. At first we are the children with no worries and then we grow to the adult that has all the worries in the world. My family as child consisted of my mother and my grandmother. Many say I was raised by both because we lived with my grandmother. At the time my mom had a wonderful job that allowed her to provide for us. She would soon lose her job because of downsizing. She applied for public assistance so we could be able to eat and began her job search.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
