The event met my expectations and even more. I did not know that I would get as much information as I did and that the faculty would be so voluntary to help. At first, I assumed that I would walk around to each of the tables, pick up information sheets, and take it with me to look over myself later on. But to my surprise, everyone was very helpful
Ever since I graduated High school they kept pushing me like if I was one a swing, to keep going and I did, I attended Heritage University. I did not want to be far away from my parents and sister, so Heritage was the best option I had. My parents have been my every day inspiration because every day they work so hard to bring food and keep a roof under our heads and I am very thankful for that. That’s why I’m here going to school and trying my best to graduate and become someone later, so they can be glad that I achieved and didn’t back out. We have to follow the path because that path never ends it might have rough edges and bumps, but as long as you believe you will soon get to your destination.
My semester here at USC has been a smooth transition however I have overcame challenges. Being an only child I 've become comfortable with doing things on my own and not being open to working with others. Not realizing this would hinder my way of learning I was not always one to study in groups but deciding to try it out this semester proved to produce tremendous outcomes! Through my first semester here at USC I found that I benefit more from studying in groups and that I retain the information a lot better than if I were to study alone. This semester, I 've also had to come to terms with the reality of the college work load.
Mr. Curry, It was an absolute pleasure meeting with you yesterday to discuss admission into the Kinkaid School for the next school year. It was great to hear a little bit more about Kinkaid 's focus, learn about the school’s rich legacy, and it’s mission to educate students holistically. Thank you for taking the time out of your schedule to discuss with me how my academic strengths, educational pursuits, and commitment to leadership and service can be valuable assets when paired with the Kinkaid School. I know that The Kinkaid experience can never be compared or duplicated, so once again, thanks for allowing me to be apart of your school day. I hope to hear from you soon!
As a matter of fact, telling my guidance counselor I hoped for USC Upstate to be the school I attend was a surprise. In all the senior meetings she had, I was the only student who even considered USC Upstate as an option. However, that didn 't stop me from looking. I like being able to
I also learnt that the friends you entered high school with wouldn’t necessarily be the ones you were hugging on the last day. I had genuinely thought that the people I considered to be my best friends in Grade Nine would still be my best friends when we said goodbye to the beige brick walls that is Beaulieu College. However, I was completely wrong. I was so fixated into being friends with everyone that I didn’t choose my friends
The thing that I think will be most beneficial to my career as an actuary though is not something that was learned through a class. The most important thing I’ve learned during my time in college has been that reaching out to people for help does not make one weak. In fact, I’d say that the people that are the quickest to acknowledge their weaknesses and seek the assistance they need are the ones that will be the most effective in their careers. Specifically in the actuarial field, it seems that people don’t see the value of using the wisdom of elders. During my last internship, though, I found that people were very ready to help with anything I needed.
Even with the amazing knowledge I believe I would gain from visiting the Stone Age, I certainly would only want to visit for a year. I am incredibly greatly to live in the year and place I do for a multitude of reasons. In the year of 2016 women are allowed the same rights as men, we can vote, receive a fair education, and in most cases we are viewed as equals. I am also incredibly grateful to have grown up in the Tahoe-Truckee area, it has provided me with the opportunity to find a great deal of outdoor activities that I am passionate about and will carry for the rest of my life.
We were encouraged to explore our interests and talents and taught to always be happy with what we are doing. Because of this accepting attitude, my love for the Hudson Valley and for Rhinebeck only grew as I got older and began to learn of other places which were hostile towards differences among their citizens. Only upon moving away from the Hudson Valley last Fall, however, did I realize how little difference could be valued, or even how much creativity could be stifled. I never realized just how lucky I was to live an hour north of one of the most famous cities in the world, in a quaint historic Victorian town, and right next to one of the largest Holistic Institutes in the United States, Omega. Never again to I want to live in a community that discourages people from being themselves and following their dreams.
Before coming to Bowling Green State University, diversity and race equality was always emphasized in my hometown. As a matter of fact, I do not recall any real conflicts within the schools I attended that arouse due to racial conflicts during my time there. The diversity among the student population and the equality among races here at BGSU was actually a big deciding factor when I was choosing where I wanted to go to college. As a freshman last year I was living in a dorm and luckily got a very wide variety of races, personalities, and backgrounds held by my “floormates” which is exactly what I wanted. After a couple of weeks of settling in and getting to know everyone, I began to meet people that did not have the diversity in their hometowns that mine did, and although this was just a lack of first-hand experience for most, one girl in particular was blatantly racist in her ideology of minorities, blacks in
Next semester, I will be a Resident Assistant in Baxter Residence Hall, simply applying for this position was a big step for me. The amazing community that God has provided me here at PBA is purely the only reason I had the courage to apply, yet alone accept this
Allow me to introduce myself, I am Bryan Le, a freshman that is currently attending a charter school by the name of “Downtown College Prep”. I am currently living with my parents and two younger siblings, one brother and one sister. Over my years in a public elementary school, I had seen others being happy because of one’s help and that made me feel happy inside. I then thought of ways to help others when I stumbled upon the fact that doctors help people everyday, which seemed as a great way to help many people so that they may continue to be happy in life. As I entered Downtown College Prep, I was urged by the staff to explore my options and to set a goal in life.
In the United States during the 1950s the federal government was forced to establish federal regulations to put an end to the segregation of society in the south along with the north. In the northern states segregation was a type of segregation call de facto segregation of which is segregation based on unwritten custom or by tradition. This was rather different than segregation in the south which was known as de jure segregation being the Jim Crow laws enforced segregation by law. These southern state governments however felt that the federal government could not control the segregation of African Americans in the states. Thus the southern states used many unsuccessful strategies to resist the compliance that included “The Southern Manifesto”,the creation of the “White Citizens Councils”,the conflict that erupted in Little Rock, and the James Meredith issue at the all-white University of segregation
The white people down in the south, aka the confederate states, were the people who had started the “Jim Crow Laws” because they’re racist and wanted power over the black people. They also made it hard for black people to vote and do things. They weren’t in control of black people but they were bossing them around. Black people also didn’t get enough freedom, as the white people separated them. Blacks got old stuff, whites got new stuff.
During the 1960’s civil rights movement hundreds of blacks were unlawfully arrested and beaten in attempts to end segregation. Many civil rights leaders such as John Lewis, Dr. Martin Luther King jr. and professor, Jim lawson strived to teach and demonstrate others how to bring equality peace by using non-violence methods. Marching, protesting, and participating in sit-ins tested the strength, morals, and dignity of John Lewis and others. The trilogy March, tells a story about a young farm boy, John Lewis, who was inspired to help end segregation and how he used non-violence at protests, marches, and sit-ins.
