I am pursuing much more and I am confident that I have found a path leading me to wake up before my alarm clock sounds instead of praying for more time. That path requires a great deal of time and effort to educate myself in understanding people. Any scholarship I receive will go towards that mission. With any contributions made towards the cost of living, books, and school materials, I will be able to spend more time thoroughly studying my textbooks beyond what is expected of me in the classroom, participate in any case studied I can get my hands on, search for internships, enjoying the privilege of being a student while taking advantage of all of VCUs resources.
I going to start this school year off right! I’m going to get a lot done this year and take my time, so that I can take in all the knowledge from my courses and I can move onto college courses. The first step I’m going to take is be on time to every scheduled appointment so that I don’t fall behind and I can get extra help if I need it. The next thing I’m going to do to be successful this year is to more work than expected not the bare minimum. Last I’m going to study hard for every expected test that I know I’m going to have to take.
Studying abroad will afford me the opportunity to experience dealing with diversity and cultural differences on a first-hand basis which in turn will help prepare me for a job in my desired field. I have always been interested in living and traveling abroad and would make the most out of this experience not only personally, but professionally as well. Question 2 What specific goals do you have for study abroad and how do you think you might achieve these goals, both on your own and through this USAC program? (about 300-350 words) My goal is to work towards a minor in International Business and further my credits required for the CPA exam. By taking classes with the USAC program and building upon my study abroad, this experience will limit the remaining classes necessary at my home university.
Name: Gretel Herrera- Martinez Tutor: Blythe Nobleman Course: ENC1102 Date: November 10, 2016 Final Reflection Essay There are many things we can learn as an academic writer. For instance, I have come across some critical academic papers, which need a lot of creativity and thinking. Some of these works touch particular challenges that we face daily in our lives hence we get solutions on how to meet such challenges. One of the challenges we had in this class was how to apply all the knowledge and techniques we have learned during the semester. Throughout my coursework, I have greatly sharpened my critical analysis and thinking skills.
A person needs to evolve as life moves on. Every day, in our life we learn new things, from school, friends and by ourselves. Take an example of me, my transformative educational experience had thought me skills that I can use for my rest of my life career. However, Frank Bruni said in his statement that “if a person wants to do something in his life, then he/she can start with little experience”. Throughout the year, I gain more knowledge of the world we live in and become aware of my career.
In addition, the paragraph on Bloom’s The Closing of the American Mind introduces the term eros, the longing for knowledge and intellectual completeness, which will be crucial for analyzing the different forms of specialization in the present. Specialization in Today’s World First, I will focus on how career related specialization ties into the concept of eros, the longing for truth and knowledge as outlined by Bloom and Socrates. I think that many students spend most of their time with education and figuring out what to do to fit into society; they become specialists in meeting the demands and requirements that society imposes on them. Students go to class every day, listen to the teacher lecture, study for quizzes and tests because good grades are necessary to get a desired job later on. This effort is wasted when not much later on
When I chose Peer Tutoring as one of my courses for Grade 11, I knew exactly why I did. It wasn't just to help out my fellow schoolmates, but rather to observe and experience the classroom from a different perspective. I've always wondered how it was to not be in the shoes of a student going through the course; this way I could see what the teacher was thinking and how he/she taught in the manner that they did. While helping out the students in Mr.Bottiglieri's grade eight humanities class I got a chance to grow and develop, by learning new skills and applying them on a daily basis, particularly to assist Sunny (a talented young boy who has high functioning autism). Some of the various skills I have developed include adaptable communication,
The readings and concepts that I have read and analyzed over this semester have really opened up my eyes and ears on what I have to have knowledge of before I enter into the classroom. Some very important issues I have learned about really show why I choose this profession after all. The topic of the history of disabilities and how far this world has come to provide equal respect and accomodations is amazing. Other topics I found inspiring were the diversity, the gender issues and equality, and especially the people with disabilities that played sports. With every topic I have read about over these past weeks I have learned more about the people I will encounter and accommodate and how much more learning I have to complete.
However, I did learn through my years of schooling that being able to read is key to success in any field of employment. I had a personal drive to be able to understand what I am reading, no matter what it may be such as an article in a magazine, a memo from supervisors or policy and procedures of a company. In my spare time, I would read as much as I could to learn new words. Since I come across words every day that are spoken to me that is not understood, I would research the words to better understand what was being discussed. Still to this day, it has become a habit of mine to read any random piece of writing to ensure my understanding continues to grow.
My responsibilities as a DECA officer are to lead and plan events for our DECA Chapter. Being a DECA Officer gave me the chance to give back to my community. DECA has helped me obtain the knowledge and skills that will greatly help me throughout my life in the business world as well as the personal world. As a DECA Officer, I had the role of the human resource manager and my responsibility was to schedule, and train everyone who would be working at the bazaar. I had to interact with the intro to Marketing students and create a schedule that would work for them.
My teacher really has my fellow classmates and myself ready for reality. She taught us everything we needed to know from the simplest to the most difficult techniques and has us prepared us for college. From the way she would teach us and also the way she treated us was an excellent way to show how the real life of a college student really does face on a daily bases. I’ll leave the class by having the prior knowledge of knowing what and how to write an argumentative essay and know how to simply justify the reading side and confront my face my fierce. This year taught me so much that I use certain techniques to help me in other subjects.
Yes, I chose a school that would prepare me for my career. The school I chose provided multiple programs and scholarships that are relevant to me. The total hours spent on my project would be close to around 70-75 hours. To manage my time effectively, I worked everyday in class up until the bell getting my assignments done. The dates assignments were given, I would get those assignments done that day.
