Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. -Nelson Mandela
I believe that education is very important. Aside from the fact that an education can give you a higher pay in your chosen career, it gives you an opportunity to build on the intelligence you already have. Receiving an education can challenge you in ways that makes you wonder about things you may not have run across before, it may open your eyes to different perspectives, different opportunities in life such as a career you may be interested in or an activity that deals with a particular skill of yours. It may also be difficult, it may put you in a position of seeking help when you need it and teach you other ways to take care of yourself. Education helps you all around, academically, personally, and socially. You don’t always need to be in a classroom per say to receive an education, it can be anywhere. In a learning environment that suits your personality and lifestyle. Whichever way you approach education, it’s beneficial to you as a person and keeps you informed on the world around you, its influences and what you have to contribute to it.
