NOT EVERY THING IS LOST
Five years ago, I had an experience that made me sure that there are certain thing .which cannot be lost in my life no matter what happens. In 2003, I came to the USA .I applied to study in English language program to continue my master’s degree. While I was living in USA, I faced many problems related to my education and including many visa rules and requirement, that were changing Therefore, I decided to start researching for solutions to complete my goal of why I came here.
Now I would like to explain what happened to my scholarship since the beginning and the level of education that I have reached until now. Firstly, when I came back to the USA, my visa was F2, which means that I could study only as apart time student. I had heard that I could not study full time with F2 visa. After that, I tried to search for any way to change my visa status. Luckily, I found the solution; I decided to go back to my country and change my visa from F2 toF1 .I came back to the USA I started to study my English program to achieve my goal. After I finished four levels out of five in an English institute in TULSA, Ok, I skipped the last level since my husband and I were having a medical procedure. After we finished the procedure, we went back to our country in 2005.
Six years later, my husband was granted a new scholarship to complete his PHD in software engineering at SMU University in DALLAS, TX. Now I have another chance to complete my goal and study for a master’s degree in fine arts or graphic design. Prior to departing to the USA, my husband sponsor informed us that I have a scholarship, too.
Unfortunately, when we arrived in the USA, the SAUDI ARABIAN cultural mission refused to pay the tuition for my English program since I studied from 2003 until 2005.they will only pay for graduate studies; thus, I need to pay the English program tuition from own pocket.
I was calling my sponsor to extend my English program for scholarship and fortunately, my advisor approved it. Now I am on my way to complete my goals, and my dream will come true. However, something came up after that. Since, I studied in the English program at SMU for one year there. After that, my cultural mission refused to pay for one more semesters, which was last one t needed .After that, I have taken IELTS exam four times .when I get a high score in the IELTS exam, I will receive full admission at SMU UNVERSITY .After that ,my cultural mission can pay for my graduate studies. Finally, if I finish my English program, I can start my dream .which is studying my master’s degree. This is my last chance to achieve my goal by MAY; 2012.When I pass my ILETS exam, so all my dream will come true. We all agree that education is one of the most important things in our lives. I think not everything is lost if I keep trying to learn new things. I assume that I will achieve what I want.
