It’s hard to place a monetary value on my college education. Education holds the keys to wealth, and not just monetary gains, but socially, emotionally and morally. An education opens your eyes to so many things in your environment. For me, an education helps my observation skills, and I choose to pay attention to things that are important to more people than just me. My education helps me to focus on the needs and concerns of others, and not just my needs and desires.
