Allowing others to permeate my mind, dispel my own ignorance, and open up to their cultures has made all the difference. I have made new friends and learned from their experiences while securing the ties of friendships past. Along with my acceptance I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge. I yearn to broaden my horizons and create opportunities where none can be found. Some may say the most important aspect of a high school education is maintaining grades.
Would you volunteer for this organization again? Why or why not? Of course, I will. Moreover, I have plans to persuade my sister, some of my friends and people who take an interest in volunteerism and social development. The Hub Childline Foundations gave me lots of good experience and good memories even though there are many facing problems come to me sometimes, but that makes me learn to resolve riddle and grow up because in daily life of mine didn’t happen that much.
The way I felt about my city and my surroundings had a strong correlation with the way I felt about myself. Prior to this realization, my dreams and aspirations for the future were minimal. I performed well throughout elementary school, and I was moved up a grade because my reading and math skills were advanced. However, when I began attending middle school, the new atmosphere combined with all of the new awareness I gained as I started transitioning from a child to an adolescent ended up in me lowering the expectations I had for myself. Once I regained my optimism and saw that Oakland is not what people say it is, I began seeing life in an optimistic way as
The life of Mahatma Gandhi was very impactful on him and lots of other people. His parents influenced him to make the best of his life by getting a good education. They encouraged him to go to school, even though he was very shy and didn’t like to talk much. When he finished high school in 1887, his family suggested that he go to school
May it be fortune, love, your dreams, or just a better life. Caroline helped me on my climb, she gave me her rope, her equipment just to see me reach the top. Caroline changed my life. I can’t repay Caroline enough, for being there when I was down, for helping with things I handle on my own, for freeing me of my past life. I feel like a new person after I met Caroline.
Where everyone and everything is extremely new, it helps to go into it with an open mind. Knowing that others have done it before and made it out alive helped me feel more at ease. I was lucky enough to have a mother who was very forgiving and through all my anxiety, and sudden panic attacks when I thought about the uncertainty of it all, and comforted me saying, “This is just a trial, if it doesn't work out we will try something new”. In the end, Everything worked out. I am thriving in school, and even though I don't enjoy coming to school as much as i enjoyed waking up at 11:00am, starting school after lunch, and finishing around three, all while still wearing my pajamas.
It was not until a friend pointed out to him, “that I was not content with being in the right when discussing any point, but was overbearing, and rather insolent, of which he convinced me by mentioning several instances” (Franklin), that Franklin realized that his ego was a problem and vowed to cure himself of this vice. Unfortunately, it seems this was one of the vices he was never able to overcome. He was boastful throughout his autobiography speaking highly of his accomplishments, in one instance as he was speaking of his annual Poor Richards Alamack, he said he considered it “a proper vehicle for conveying instruction among the common people” (Franklin). In reading this section of the autobiography, you clearly see that Franklin no longer considered himself a common person but someone of higher degree.
I honestly did not know what to expect, I heard it would be the hardest thing I have ever done and I definitely believe that to be true. I have definitely felt defeated on multiple occasions and for the first time in my life actually cried about school. I am so thankful to have such great professors to encourage me when I did not do well on exams, give me feedback on study habits, and truly care about my future at Denver School of Nursing and as a nurse. My classmates for the most part are exceptional. They have been so positive, helpful, and I feel like we all learn from each other.
Since my childhood, I have been disturbed by inequality and injustice in the world. I felt like a solitary beacon of humanitarianism upon a coast of apathy and egoism. The idea of college life, then, was unnerving to me; I imagined attending a school full of ruthlessly competitive students of my own caliber or higher, indifferent to the plights of others. Finding Brandeis was a profound relief for my stressed self. The prospect of attending a school founded on a desire for equality, where students interact amiably and noncompetitively, seemed a dream come true.
During my elementary school years, I attended Catholic school not as a matter of learning about faith, but to prepare to be a better child of God. Still, not being pleased with being told by nuns, priests, and even my own parents what to believe, I did explore what it meant to be a Catholic to some extent. Even today, I contemplate a part of myself as Catholic in a historical sense, just not in a religious sense. I have a profound respect for religious faith and sporadically feel a
I feel grateful for the guidance and friendship that my advisors at Park have given me. While there are many things I hope my next advisor learns about me, and there are two important things I would like my Dana Hall advisor to know about me. Over the years, I have grown passionates for many different hobbies.

I am the oldest of three siblings, the oldest of my cousins from my maternal side, and the first from both maternal and paternal side to receive an education outside the country Nigeria, better yet the United States. It is a privilege that a few attain and for many Nigerians a dream come true. As grateful as I am, there are a lot of expectations accompanied. Although, doing what is best for me is the common mindset in today’s society, I cannot help but consider such mentality, the waste of an opportunity. For an American citizen, the future is bright and filled with potential.
The book, “Outliers” Malcolm Gladwell discusses the effect of relationships in the introduction. What would be the key component in sustaining a healthy life? The “Roseto Mystery” solves the question of why the people of Roseto were reported of rarely having heart disease under the age of 65. Their diet had no correlation to the healthy life they lived, but was caused by the effects of the close community relationships. Connecting to relationships, personally in my life I have been affected by positive relationships.
