By the time I graduate high school, I will already have my college associate degree that I will have earned through my hard work and dedication. Even though I went through a lot at such a young age, it has shaped me in every possible way. I was exposed to a whole different language and culture, but I was able to succeed through my strong desire of success and dedication. I am thankful for every challenge that I had to go through because if it was not for them, I would not be the person I am
I was born in Anderson, Indiana, the first child and only daughter to a northern Pennsylvania-bred father and a southern-Louisiana mother. My family, and specifically the backgrounds of my parents, has had a profound impact on the person I am today. From my father, I inherited a strong work ethic and a determination to accomplish whatever I set out to do. My father was a teacher for many years and he instilled in me the importance of education and life-long learning. As a result, I’m still taking college courses and always looking to learn new things.
I am 28 years old, married to my husband Matt, and I have wanted to become a dental hygienist for a few years now. At the age of 18, I started working as an instrument sterilizer at an orthodontist office in 2006. After a few months my employer gave me the opportunity of furthering my career by sending me to the Maryland State Dental Association in Maryland. I took a few classes and gained my radiology and my expanded functions certification. I was trained to take panoramic and cephalometric x-rays.
That is when she took the internship at the Dental office, and soon applied for dental hygienist school at Blinn in College Station. In another two years she graduated and went back to the same dental office where she previously held her internship, and a job was waiting for
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. He always told me to never depend on anyone, to work hard for myself and with a diploma I could achieve lots of success.
In this paper, I will be reflecting on my first year as an Occupational therapy student at the University of The Witwatersrand. While reflecting, I have come to realise that my viewpoint and understanding of the profession of Occupational Therapy and the importance of occupation to Occupational Therapy have developed substantially throughout this year. In my opinion, my previous understanding of OT and occupations in OT was very basic and shallow compared to what I understand of this topic currently. This growth in understanding came about due to many learning events such as lectures, fieldwork and activities, however, two of the most significant learning events I have personally experienced this year have had a major impact on my learning experience. These two learning events, which are prominent events within my first year of studying OT, include the OT June exam and making a chair in APT (Appropriate Paper-based Technology) for a child with Cerebal Paulsy and Microcephaly.
I was a science major succeeding at everything but my science classes. I considered switching my major, I even considered switching universities, but I decided to stand up to the challenge that I had accepted upon matriculation and simply try harder. I admittedly didn’t have a strong science
Up until my junior year of high school, I didn’t know what type of surgeon I wanted to be. I was assigned a junior project, where I researched schools, and most importantly my career plans. That’s when I decided that a reconstructive plastic surgeon is what I wanted to become. I am a perfectionist and I like to take my time so that I can take pride in my work.
Work experience I always try to utilize my time to the maximum extent in expanding my skill strata and to self-sustain through various employments. I have been employed briefly during the gaps between my academic careers. After my plus 2 examinations, I worked as a marketing representative for Eureka Forbes for few months while waiting for B Pharm admission. During the interval between my graduation and admission to PharmD, I had an opportunity to teach at a pharmacy school. During my PharmD course, I used to teach Pharmacoepidemiology & Public Health concepts to dental postgraduate students.
Personal Statement Over a casual dinner-table conversation a few years ago with a chemical engineer, my curiosity about his profession led to quite an engaging discussion between us. I was amazed by the several innovations brought about by the Chemical Engineering fraternity which have changed the lives of so many people across the globe. For example, he told me the dramatic change in the gasoline production levels which came about due to the Houdry Process in 1934. It set me thinking on what a remarkable opportunity I had to channelize my love of chemistry & physics to pursue my higher education in the field of chemical engineering & make a career in this field. Once in college, I found that chemical engineering was much more exciting than I had imagined it to be.
Seeing the way, they both earned their livings was enough for me to understand that college wasn’t a must to make a livable income. My father actually has multiple times tried talking me out of going into college. They are what has given me the motivation to go to college. Hearing the many stories about how my mom had gone to college for a couple years before being constricted by debt, has pushed me to actively pursue the many scholarships I’ve applied for. My goal as I continue my education is to be the first in my family to graduate from a college, and my passion for the love of sports, especially our Cleveland teams, will help me get there as I strive to major in marketing and one day get to work for a professional sports franchise somewhere around the
Career Autobiography There are many things that I feel have led me to year number two of graduate school pursuing a career as a school counselor. For I while I tried to convince myself that a career in school counseling was not for me and ultimately everything led me here. My mother has been a school counselor for the last 25 years and I grew up watching her do something she loved. I went to school everyday and watched my mother make a positive impact on many of my classmates and this left a very lasting impression on me.
During this time at the company I have not ask for a raise until now because I wanted to show the company the current efforts I am making to improve my skill level. I would describe myself as motivated, hardworking, and a team player. I feel that with my time at this company these attributes have been made apparent. In August 2014 I took a class on local anesthesia and nitrous oxide at the University of Farmingdale.
Governor’s School Essay Response Ever since I was young you could always find me toying around with objects trying to figure out how they worked. Taking them apart, studying them, and then reconstructing them back together was a usual past time for me. Looking back I realized that all of the time I spent on learning how something worked was the foundation that flourished into my passion for engineering.
I immediately knew that in order to survive and be successful in this country, I would have to start college. Seeing my dad working hard as an electrical technician I always wanted to be an electrical engineer. With my husband support and encouragement I started my college. Upon my arrival to The United State of America my husband was working in small company and the money he was earning was not good enough to support our entire family. Even then I started my semester with his savings, but I knew I would have to do something in order to support him and my educational needs.
