In Janie’s past relationships, the men would not let her do any of the normal labor built for a man. She is to stay in the house and do what women were expected to do, clean and cook. Janie is eager to help outside and Tea Cake is the first guy to let her do so.
“You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.” This quote by Eleanor Roosevelt says that to grow as a person, someone must first be scared. People also have to do what they think is impossible to grow. The Little Rock Nine, who integrated Central High, were scared for their lives every day of their high school experience at Central High. The ideas shown in this quote are expressed in the memoir Warriors Don’t Cry by Melba Patillo Beals.

I believe I should be selected for the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Scholarship because I am not the typical high school senior. When it comes to my education, I go about and beyond expectations. My desire to do my best in school shows consistently year after year. I put in equal amount of effort when it comes to my after school activities and community involvement. I was told at a young age that education was the key to success and from that point on I made it my main priority not to be the average student among those that settle for less but to be a outstanding student that rises to every occasion to take advantage of my education.

When we taught together I do recall her having a heavy focus on vocabulary in her science class. She developed a vocabulary game called, “Last Man Standing” to help the kids not only understand vocabulary words, but also the parts of words. I always saw the positive impact it had on students’ success, but never understood why she had such a heavy focus on it. After our interview I now understand the why and it makes perfectly good sense. I then began to wonder what strategies could we, as a school, provide for our parents to help them support their child’s vocabulary development?
Through examination of the previous sophomores’ advice and my own predictions of the year to come, I have formulated a definitive set of goals I would like to accomplish in Algebra II Honors this year. Looking back at my past year in Geometry Honors, I have recognized many improvements I need to make to my personal studying habits to reach my full potential and excel in this course. Last year, I was slow to ask for help, many times waiting until it was too late to come to my teacher and ask them to explain the concepts on which I was still a bit fuzzy. This year I am making it one of my personal goals to work harder to fully comprehend the mathematical concepts and ask for assistance as soon as I start noticing a problem. I also would like to make it a goal to stay much more organized this
