|Nick De La Cruz|
I was born and raised in Davenport, Iowa, and I chose to come to the University of Texas for the challenge of making friends at a school where I knew no one, making a home in a very fun place I knew little about, and to become more independent.
In my free time I enjoy staying active, whether it is running, riding my bicycle, or playing basketball. I do the Register’s Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa every summer and I call it my annual spiritual renewal. I fall in love with my home state every summer I go back, and I have never decided if it was the pie, the people, or the landscape. I also love reading, enjoying my time in my fraternity, and staying active as a role model in the communities in which I reside.
After I graduate UT I would like to attend the University of Iowa Law School. I am excited to make life better in my home state after my education with the skills I learn and develop.
I am a young man guided by my goals. I would like to be a source of help and compassion in my city and state when I am a working adult. I would like to be active in my community after I am out of school. I would like to lead the state of Iowa.
It is for these personal goals that I aspire to law school, to learn the skills to aid me in my goals of leadership and service over my lifetime. It is for the same reason that I take my classes seriously and I take advantage of the opportunities to help other people now. I see college, and my American Studies major, as a way to effectively learn the skill of service to others.
As an aspirant public leader I will do the public a greater service by learning more and understanding more perspectives on issues so relevant to every American as health care and cancer, and connecting with people on such an emotional level.
