Growing up in a lower-middle class home, I have learned to be modest and frugal. I have also learned that nothing comes free and that everything must be earned through determination and hard work. So when I joined the Cub Scouts at age 7, I was determined to excel and achieve the highest rank in scouting, Eagle Scout. Since then, I have been intent on changing things for the better in everything I participated in. Ergo, having a lifetime goal to give back to the Earth, whether it be directly by studying chemistry to help the Earth or indirectly by donating some of my time and money back into the science field to help fund future developments of technology, seems best for the world. Knowing that nothing is guaranteed, my participation in the Boy Scouts has served as a foundation to allow me to expand my knowledge in other fields of study in case my expected career path does not go as planned.
To live, study and work with students like me from all across Arkansas, would not only be an honor but an extraordinary and challenging experience for my mental capabilities. Attending ASMSA would be a great opportunity to thoroughly express my hard work ethic and dedication. With my persistence, I could accomplish anything and everything. I believe that by attending ASMSA, I would better help prepare myself for my future and make extraordinary achievements. My role as part of the ASMSA community would not simply be a student, but rather be an achiever.
A personal belief that many people have is that puppies are one of the most adorable creatures in the world. The young, energetic, playfulness of one can bring joy and love to people who are a fan of dogs. The story by George Saunders titled “puppy” brings to light the youthful nature of children and how they are like puppies needing understanding and guidance. On the adult side of the spectrum, adults may not always make the best decisions just like puppies when it comes to making choices about the people they love and having clear judgment. The story is set in the belief that we prioritize the people we love based on the conditions and choices that come with that person. In doing so it is about wanting what is best for them even when it is not directly in sight while not holding them back but building character so they can achieve a
The United States Marine Corps is the fiercest fighting force on earth. For years I have dreamt of joining that force. Many people in my family have served in the Armed Forces. Naturally service captured my mind. As I became more knowledgeable, I came to appreciate the camaraderie, courage, duty, respect, and the many things The Corps embodies. Being with like-minded individuals who feel the same appreciation for such attributes as I do, confirms my decision.
We all know peer pressure can make you do things, But Arthur Miller’s The Crucible shows us the extremes of social pressure and how it can make us do things we would never have thought of doing. One of the major themes in The Crucible is that popular belief causes you to act and operate differently than you would normally. Some examples of this is Mary’s behavior, the girls fainting, and Proctors struggle to not confess.
Have you ever been scared of going somewhere new? How about enrolling in a certain program? Did you want to just conceal yourself from the world around you? Maybe you stay that way for a while, but then you get up and realize that you have to move on, confront your fears, get on with life. The poem “Speech to the Young” by Gwendolyn Brooks is a poem talking to younger people that advises them on their lives going forward. It tells them to never give up, don’t let people deter them and always have sights on what you want to accomplish. Clarified explanation of the message, effective and clever use of hyperbole and metaphors, and choosing a certain audience all contributed to the overall relevance and flow of this poem.
In the story The Outsiders, Cherry Valance said "things are rough all over".By this she means that the greasers aren't the only ones who have it hard.The Socs have more wealth but they have problems that money can't solve.The greasers don't have much money and think that money will solve their problems when it wont.
First and foremost graduating on February 27th 2015 with Class 002 of The Massachusetts Trial Court Officer Academy has to be my initial goal. Without completing this academy all the additional personal goals I have set for myself will mean nothing. Setting personal goals is my way to achieve the hard to reach accomplishments I strive for. Although there may be one main objective, before I can reach it, I set many “step goals” to focus on along the way. My first set of “step goals” was the application, résumé, and interview process to which I sought out a person I knew whose job was to read résumés and conduct interviews for the company Lockheed Martin. He told me what he looks for in a résumé, what keeps him reading it and what makes
Deciding to attend Texas A&M University was both a hardship and immense, opportunity in my life. Coming from a close knit background, and possessing a very family oriented character, my decision to come to this incredible institution was one out of my comfort zone. If I was to be asked one year ago, If I could ever see myself standing on this marvelous campus, attending one of the top schools in the nation, I would have honestly responded, no. My counselors would have said no, my friends, my college advisor, my family. The answer would not have been yes, not because I wasn 't capable of meeting the standards to attend, but because there seemed more obstacles in my way than there was forces pushing me forward. Finances were never on our side,
“What actions will you take to evolve the sectors of technology and science once you graduate?”
1. How would your subordinates describe you as a leader? My subordinates would describe me as the type of leader who encourage them to succeed. In addition, my subordinates would describe me the type of leader who enforce them to be proficient at their jobs by learning Air Force publications and instructions. Lastly, my subordinates would describe me as the type of leader who strives to help mold them into military professionals.
Socialization is a process of learning and social development. Socialization occurs when we interact with one another and become familiar with the world we live in. Socialization is important to the development of personality. Youth sports can play a crucial role in social interaction such as actively interacting with others, synthesizing information, and making decisions for ourselves. Although sports may apply stress, anxiety, and social pressure on the young athletes, youth sports build and develop character, confidence, and ultimately self-worth.
College was always one of my long term goals as I continued with my education. Throughout the years I began to work harder and harder so I could secure my future. I knew that getting to college would not be easy. I am about to embark on a four year journey in one of the hardest fields to pursue. I will continue my education as a Nursing major at a four year university. It was important for me to continue my education, especially in this field as it has always been a dream of mine. In my family neither of my parents attended college, through the years I have watched them do jobs they hated so me and my siblings could be successful. As I got older my brother attended college, be prospered and graduated in four years. He now has a steady job and
My goal is to be a successful officer in the military by being a good leader, having discipline, and by obtaining an advanced degree in military science.
Conrad Hill once said “You are always a student, never a master. You have to keep moving forward.” Steve Jobs reiterates this during his 2005 Stanford graduating class commencement speech. In it, Jobs talks to the graduates about his experiences and how they apply to the concept of never giving up. By guiding the audience through events in his life, Jobs encourages them to keep moving forward, and to never settle with what’s been given to them. He accomplishes this by asking thought-provoking questions that make the audience feel and think about what is truly important, and by convincing them to take any and all opportunities that they may encounter, because they never know when one could lead to success.
