Sample Essay on Personal Profile

My name is Ali Salem, a freshman at Arizona state college taking a course in criminal justice. The past few years have been life changers to me. After I left high school, I went to live with my uncle in the city as my parents were living up-country where there is no much exposure like in the city (Buller 342). My uncle worked as a court clerk in one of the local courts. Every night he would come to the house with a different story of the criminal cases they handle in the courts. One thing that I figured out from all the stories was that criminal cases were many, and it seemed like many criminals escaped prison due to lack of strong evidence.

That is when I decided that I would pursue criminal justice and to succeed in it I knew I had to do it in reputable college where I would get the best training. Even the movies I watched continued to encourage me to take up criminal law and my uncle supported me on my endeavor. and that is how I decided to apply and got accepted in the Arizona state college to study law, majoring in criminal justice

My goal is to graduate with high grades and be a good lawyer to those who will hire my services in the future. I believe that my time at the college would help me achieve my academic goals before I venture into the world (Murray and Sarah 145). The college has helped me settle fast and I hope to make a good impression by scoring high grades this semester. The college has lived to its expectation and nothing would stop me from achieving my dreams.
