My identity is wrapped up in my love of music because I have been surrounded by it since I was little. When I was a toddler, I would sit for long periods of time and watch videos of kids singing songs. As I grew older I participated in my church's children's choir and even held solos in my elementary school chorus. When I reached middle school I joined my school's middle school chorus in 7th grade as an alto and 8th grade as a soprano. The transition between 8th and 9th grade was important for me because I took up voice lesson in 8th grade and went to my first music camp the summer before 9th grade.
I thought this experience with choir was going to be somewhat better than my experience in seventh grade, because I had matured quite a lot since the last time I had given choir a chance. Therefore, I thought I would mentally approach the choir concert in a more positive way than I would have in the past. Additionally, I was hoping I would be able to keep my focus for the entire duration of the concert. So, I did not seem disrespectful. Unfortunately, my experience did live up to my expectations.
I got to know people I probably would have never talked to because of it. I even became friends with some of my sister’s friends that are upperclassmen. I wouldn 't have even known who they were or had classes with most of them without us being in show choir. Lots of people may say choir kids are weird and they aren’t very wrong. That’s why it’s important.
My proudest accomplishment would be being college bound. Being college bound delineates how far I've progressed in life and how much I've achieved. Taking my background into consideration, I've accomplished so much more than i would ever have predicted, and I have proved so many people wrong. Throughout life, my intelligence was often questioned and i was frequently told by my family and peers that I wouldn't accomplish anything of great substance and that my dreams are futile. Nevertheless, I never let their spiteful words bring me down or sway my focus and i continued working hard so one day I can repay my mom for all she did for me.
Tried to enjoy the honor band. We carried all the stuff into the gymnasium and chose a spot on the bleachers. I put my trombone together and I started to practice my audition scales and music anxiously. Luckily, I had my big band practice before my audition. I was in Mr. Fritz’s band so I headed towards the big band practice room with Tara.
At first he thinks that just being the lead singer in the choir back at school should be enough to make him the chief. "A chief! A chief! "I ought to be chief," said Jack with simple arrogance, "because I'm chapter chorister and head boy. I can sing C sharp."
What I desire is digging deeper into life and seek deeper into who I have become. I would not say my achievement is the greatest; I’d rather say it was the most significant that moved me in such a powerful way. My achievement occurred in fifth grade and memorizing 182 pi digits.
In high school, I needed to carry a dictionary with me all the time; I took remedial classes and spent hours doing regular homework. However, I did not use the language as an excuse to do badly in the school, with perseverance and hard work I overcame the challenge and got outstanding grades. My greatest accomplishment takes place in high school. During my senior year, I made history at my school by being the first Latino to get a perfect score in the AP-Calculus class. I was really happy about
People always telling her she was never good enough and her being determined to prove them wrong is how she relates to the quote. “I’m very dedicated. when people always gave me a lot of hate i always went my own way.” She was always told she was not good enough and she would never be good enough to be famous or to go to a good college for music but she is now at an amazing school for music proving them wrong. Instead of ending her talent in high school, she continued it in college, which is how she lives by the quote today. “Going to school for music is very tough, people are always going to set limits for me, i work hard everyday trying to step outside of those limits.” In the music industry people always expect certain things from certain people and are going to set limits for those certain people and everyday she wowed them with something bigger to step outside of those limits and raise their expectations for her.
I enjoyed going through high school because i was involved so heavily in sports, dance and drama. I met many wonderful performers and had many great outgoing teachers that made the classes and extra curricular something I still remember today. When transferring over to university, especially such a small university, I felt lost. I started university knowing that I would be joining the dance team, but I quickly realized that would be harder than I thought. The Lakehead dance team had a very different style dancing than I was used to because I was coming from a high level.
