I am the first in my family to go to college and with that being said, I have always felt the pressure to be the best role model and example for my younger sisters. Growing up, my parents have always been really strict on me, more than they have been with my younger sisters. I never really understood why, until now two months after my fathers’ death. My fathers’ dream was always to see his three daughters graduate with a college degree. Both of my parents, especially my father always expressed to me the importance my education, for my future.
First, I’m going to tell you a story. My dad has been having trouble with his job and because he’s the only income in my family, we’ve had financial problems for a long time. (This is when you read the full story to understand) Last year was a very hard year for me. The
Although fearful, I was courageous, and shared with them that I was going though. I educated them and wanted our relationship to keep growing. I had to stay strong, and true to myself despite my mother and father not understanding my sexuality. I found strength inside myself to move beyond fear and become truly happy. It took courage to achieve happiness despite not living within society’s standards.
I’ve always been healthy, loved, and lived in comfort. The kindness I’ve felt so often makes me want to pay it forward; I want nothing more than for everyone to have the opportunities I’ve had. Even though I have not walked in the shoes of incredible adversity, my deep-rooted desire to improve lives is what makes me a humanitarian. I am certain that, like Terry Fox, I will dedicate the rest of my life to serving those in
This assessment truly opened my eyes. Before taking this assessment, I’ve always considered myself as an open person whom was emotionally stable. The reason why I’ve always considered myself as an open person was because I felt that I had a strong curiosity in accepting new ideas and task. After taking this assessment, I learned that I’m a conscious person. I completely agree with this outcome because at work, I am self-disciplined, organized, and dependable.
When I was 12 years old, I made it onto a cheerleading worlds team. Essentially, if my team got a bid, we would get to go to the Cheerleading Worlds competition at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Disney World. I am a part of the competitive cheer community along with 3.3 million other athletes in the U.S. alone. My teammates and I were ecstatic and could not wait for this moment to compete. Our team name was the Cheer Eclipse Comets.
The core theme of this abstinence project is connection, growth, and being who you are as an individual. These three essential components have been very instrumental and transformational in my life. However, the overwhelming support from all aspects of my lives has been phenomenal in my life as well. Additionally, I have formed a spiritual connection with a high power known as God. I realized this process is a marathon and not a race.
Gabrielle didn’t like her injury because she had worked so hard to make it so close to let herself down. What inspired gabby the most was when she remembered that her siblings have up so much for her and that her siblings supported her every step of the way. Once gabby took the stage for her Olympic championship, she took all the practices from day one of gymnastics until the day of the Olympics and put on a great performance. Gabrielle Douglas accomplished her dream at a young
It has grown into such a huge part of my life, so it is not shocking that I want to be a Kilgore Rangerette in college! Most people would not find this as a surprise, because I have dreamed about this goal my whole life. Walking in my freshman year into drill team, my love for dance grew tremendously. Drill team has helped me venture out into more styles and ways of dancing, and has without a doubt been my favorite. To be a Kilgore College Rangerette, would be an absolute dream come true.
Rather, it’s leaving a note or getting a small gift will leave a bigger impact. You were the trust worthy father-figure that any girl would dream to have and I was lucky enough to be blessed with the best one. I for one, do not consider myself a strong person. Despite my self perception, you continued to remind me that I could do anything even when I never thought it was possible. Everything I do is for you.
