American Creed

My essay about education and being american.

By Angel from UCLA CS in California

American Creed

What is the American dream? The American dream is a place of freedom to be whatever you want to be. Other people think that America gives more opportunity to people with lighter skin color. I believe that it does not matter what color your skin is, the only thing that matters is how good of an education you have. A good example of this is Condoleezza Rice.

Condoleeza Rice, 66th U.S. Secretary of State

Condoleezza Rice is a famous African American and was the United States Secretary between 2005 and 2009. Condoleezza Rice said, “You can come from humble circumstances and do great things but we know that the key to that was always a high quality education.” I agree with this quote because with a good education you can do whatever you want.

Another person living the american dream is Deidre Prevett. She is a principal of an elementary school in Oklahoma. She is Native American but that does not stop her from living her american dream. She believes that education is the key to success and I agree with her.

In conclusion, I believe that education is the key to living your american dream. Education opens a lot of doors for you like escaping poverty and having a good life. With education you can start to inform other people about how they can live their american dream.
