I can say I have found myself and am very matured for my age. I see life differently and plan goals to define my own success, in a realistic manner I take charge of your own life and know what I want and what I have to do to get what I want. My experiences have made me a stronger person, I push myself to work harder and never give up. I have failed many times and through that, I have learned to deal with failure. I have learned that everything happens for a reason and it is a learning experience.
Therefore, people who have passion and perseverance and those who have taught and learned, achieve their long-term goal. I still agree with Duckworth idea about having and testing out grit to become better in life. On a personal experience, I was always struggling through high school. My goal was to be able to walk across the stage with my friends and graduate. So no matter what, I overcame every obstacle that was holding me back from my goal and I was able to graduate with my
But after my visits to Lindenwood I understand all the ways that help is accessible to me. And since my failure in Algebra 2 the year prior I’ve gained new ways to make it fool proof that I remember to do my work. With the help of calendars, alarms on my phone, and writing and recording notes as the professor speaks I feel that I am prepared to succeed at college. With these tools I fully plan on surpassing others in my pursuit of higher education.
I thought of having bigger responsibilities, more complicated projects, difficult homework and so on. And yes I was positive! I have experienced a lot of time – sacrificing, brain – drying activities, yet these were made far easier by our oneness as a class. I realized that high school life is nothing but a bittersweet rollercoaster ride I have insurmountably surpassed. Sleepless nights, never – ending tests, and seemingly arduous tasks have been my greatest pillars of foundation that gave me the drive to do unfathomable things.
Throughout my high school career, I was forced into many situations where I was challenged to connect with my peers and serve as a role model for future students. Whether it be my involvement in the school marching band, or helping students in community tutoring sessions, I have always made it my goal to better the people around me through my own efforts. Throughout my high school career, I have put forth my best effort to connect with my peers, transform individuals, and make a difference in my community. Joining the school marching band at the beginning of my freshman year of high school was one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Hermann High School was a big change for me my freshmen year. I walked into the high school my first day of high school and was as scared as a raccoon. I walked through the doors and was greeted by many people I knew and felt a sense of excitement and eagerness. It was such a new environment and a totally different group of people. I had to come out of my comfort zone to meet
No matter where life takes us, there are always obstacles everywhere we turn. This is where motivation takes its course and leads us to the right path in reaching our true potential. Coming from a student who was always on top of her school work in high school, I thought college was a place that set me up for failure. But I was wrong because this is a place where I can challenge myself and find that incentive in getting me past my struggles. Although there are many responsibilities to take care of, I am able to push myself simply because of one thing: motivation.
From a young age, I learned to be very independent, and this independence has led me to gain leadership skills that have proven valuable in school. As Vice-President of National Honor Society, I have helped take charge of more than a hundred members and helped direct and organize community service events. Such as the Harvest Fall Festival or visiting nursing homes
Having participated in this program last semester, I was both excited and hesitant to return. I was excited because of all the great people I met and valuable things I learned; but I was hesitant because I didn’t know what to expect out of another seven sessions. Last semester’s program taught me to self-reflect on my past to help guide my future, but this semester helped me to guide my future or at least try to plan for it. One of my first big A-Ha moments in this program was with Mark Trumbo.
I will always push myself to seek an opening to better myself despite all odds and negativity to be the best me I could ever be even if I mess up along the way I know it’s only more lessons to be learned. You should never stop learning and improve yourself because even if you don’t try just know you will always learn something new every day, education is endless. I will forever remain hopeful and humble because of what I personally have been through and have witnessed growing up. I have now learned I am not average I am me and there is nothing else I would rather
When I started Wheatmore in 2013 as a freshman I never pictured myself where I am today. Wheatmore is so much different than middle school there is more work, more people and more exhausting but fun all at the same time. Being a freshman I could not wait to turn six-teen to get my license and earn my own money. I remember being so excited when I got hired at Just Save. Now I work two jobs and go to school.
Timeliness is the key to be able to manage work. If you are punctual you will get everything done on time. I’m a Rockstar VA because I never stop learning. If there new methods, techniques and technology, I am very willing to learn. I explore all resources in order for me to familiarize anything new to me.
This will help me complete my prerequisites and also help me learn all about what I need to know to have my dream career. I believe that I deserve this scholarship because I am hard-working and dedicated. I will graduate high school a semester early with all my credits and a 3.6 GPA. I have worked since the summer I turned 15, and now during my senior year, I hold two part time jobs adding up to about 30-40 hours a week while still going to highschool full time. I have also held many leadership positions throughout my high school years.
I have a natural enthusiasm and like to promote causes I believe in. I would love the opportunity to help promote the University of Dayton by working as a tour guide or helping in the Admissions office. I like to stay busy, and juggle lots of activities. As a member of student government, I chaired Homecoming Week both junior and senior years. Homecoming at PND has many traditions the students and alumni hold very special to them, including dress-up theme days all week, powder-puff football, olympics, trivia contests, the pep rally, homecoming court, the football game, and the dance, all of which I was in charge of.
The unique qualities and characteristics that I possess that will allow me to contribute to the UCF community are being able to work independently and staying motivated at everything I do. Working independently has prepared me for the future because I will not have anyone but myself to get my tasks done. All my life I have worked very hard to get everything I have wanted to accomplish in life especially during my junior year I set a goal to get straight A’s and I put my mind to it and I finally was able to obtain the grades I wanted.
