But during my sophomore year i saw how my school 's avid class was accepting applications to join the class. I knew avid promoted going to college and guided you into it. So what i suppose in a fit of desperation i applied in the hopes that their was a chance of me going to college. And lucky for me that chance became very realistic, because i took this class i learned in more depth what it took to get into a college and the expenses off it. Because of that I now i 'm applying to different college.
The challenges I have faced influenced my academic performance and guided me into pursuing my college education. My junior year was a struggle for me. I decided to challenge myself like I have never been challenged before. I took on an honors class that I clearly wasn 't ready for, but I stuck with it and was determined to finish. In the beginning the intensity surprised me and I did not do as well as I would have liked to.
In my junior year of high school, I did not think that the bags underneath my eyes could grow any darker. At the time, I was a member of Business Professionals of America, UIL, Student Council, SHAQ, and the National Honors Society. Not only this, but I was taking college courses, an AP course, and had friends and family to attend to. Every day was a new challenge for me. Although all of these comings and goings have a place in my heart, my biggest achievement was becoming class president and planning the 2015 prom.
As a fifteen year old, I never thought I would be thinking about college so early, what irony! I stood a little surprised when my teacher gave me a paper which said I earned the opportunity to go to college early. I actually did not know that was possible; I decided to learn a little bit more about the program, Puma College Connection Program. After learning a little more about the program I knew I needed to take advantage of the opportunity. I talked to my parents and they both agreed, so I feel encouraged and hopeful for my future.
When I first saw that ACA-122 was a required course to complete your Associate in Arts degree, I thought it was an unnecessary course to have to take. What else could I possibly learn about College Transfer Success at the end of my degree? To my surprise, as I come to the end of ACA-122 class, I find myself to be a more prepared student and future employee. I wish I had taken this course during my first semester at Guilford Technical Community College. The self-assessment tests we had to take at the beginning of the semester reassured me that I was on the right path academically and career wise.
Moving away for college had always been a dream for me. However, my parents were not keen to that dream. I am a first generation college student, and the youngest in my family. Moving away for college was possibly one of my parents’ worst nightmare. Growing up near a college town, my parents hoped that moving away would not be necessary.
This year I took on the challenge of enrolling in Wenatchee Valley College’s Running Start program. This is a program offered through Chelan High School which allows students to gain college credit in addition to meeting core high school requirements. Through the running start program I have been pushed outside my academic comfort zone resulting in a new level of self-reliance. Academically, I have always been a student who has been very driven and motivated. I am ranked second in my class according to GPA.
The research data was read, reread, the results that was students was talking a about a desire for education, learning, personal goals, family goals or influence. Going to college that far away from home. If your parents drive you crazy and can’t seem to get away from the annoying sibling, college is the answer! Put as much distance between yourself and them. Sweep all your problems under the rug so you don’t have to deal with them.
In junior year of high school, I made the decision to graduate early to get a head start in college. Driven by an interest to be challenged more educationally, I enrolled at Pierce community college and immediately started taking classes and getting acclimated with the new environment and assess how I could maximize my time on campus. As my course selection options narrowed, I started analyzing my childhood upbringing, the knowledge I learned
I want to go to college because it is an amazing experience and opportunity that not everyone has the privilege of receiving. Before my freshman year of high school, my dad told me about how right before he graduated high school, his parents sat him down and told him that he could not go to college. They did not have the money, nor the resources. My dad had straight A's and worked a full time job throughout high school, and had saved enough money to take the ACT and apply for some schools. He ended up working his way through college, graduating Georgetown with a masters degree, and he now owns his own consulting company.
In high school, the uttermost important goal for me is to attend college and pursuing my dream of studying forensics, and eventually taking that success and finding a way to give back to the community and people that raised me. The CBC Spouses Education Scholarship will help me acquire the funds to achieve my goal in the long run. I have always been determined and an all round optimist. However, when I entered high school I found out that we, as in my mother and I, do not possess the kind of financial stability that it takes to acquire the learning that I desired. If I cannot work through college and cannot afford my books, unfortunately, all of my hard work will go down the drain.
I will be the first in my family to ever attend a university, which really petrifies me. Consequently, I am committed to make my parents proud thus I have established several challenging objectives such as: to graduate with honor, to academically thrive in college and to finish in 4-years. I also desire to conduct research, to study aboard and to earn A’s during my first freshman quarter. Coming from a difficult high school experience I want to penetrate my timid and insecure boundaries and make friends, in hopes to reach my composite goal, to leave a memorable landmark at UCI and to create unforgettable experiences with others. 2.
