Confessing to him was the hardest thing I ever had to do. Open heartedly he accepted my past. We began our bright future with a clean slate. In conclusion, all the events that happened helped me learn how to love myself. It taught me to never let a man take away your voice.
By getting accepted as a Coolidge I will have the mentoring experience that I have always wished for. I will also get to become an impregnable leader through the training program. This is important because to improve a community one has to be an exemplary leader first. Furthermore, I would love to become a greater leader because currently in my generation, regrettably, only one member has gone to college. My parents unfortunately did not even get a full elementary education because of this I see on a daily basis how a life without proper education is like.
About a couple of months later, everything was beginning to go back to normal, I still do not have the courage to speak about my grandmother or grandfather without shedding a tear. However, I do remember them by showing me to never give up. Their words and actions will be with me forever, as hard as life gets, never back down, if you do… you better get back up. And to this day, I have been knocked down twice, but I have been able to get back up. Therefore, after losing two of my favorite people, there is now a good reason to celebrate Dia de Los
I, too, was a selfish and spoiled person until an eye opening experience happened to me. It was the Wednesday during spring break, and school was out. My family and I decided to take a trip to Lafayette to visit my cousin and the new apartment she was renting. It was the perfect day for all of us. My aunt who has MS got to see her daughter which does
Since this time in life, I made it a goal to help not only my family but others in need out too. For I know what it is like to have absolutely nothing. In order for myself to achieve this goal in life, I would love to continue my education and graduate from college to get a great job. I know it would take a lot of studying, but I know that it will all pay off in the end. I want to be able to make a change in this world; even if it means starting off with something small.
I unwisely had I known considered them like any family member, they came and went. Even though they were nice they wouldn't last so I stopped growing attached so much I went with the flow and receive fun and mostly focused on school and after-school activities. By now my siblings and I lived with my mother until high school where I and my sister moved in with my father and his wife. My father's wife, however, became a considerable part me and my sibling's life, especially, my mother, they weren't enemy's they were kind of friends who exchanged advice on how to deal with my father or how to handle me and my siblings by now, I have four other siblings from my mother and my stepmother has a son with my father. Without a doubt, she helped out a great deal, especially at my Quinceañera.
Memories of my horrendous childhood often drift around my mind, along with the anger, and pain I once suffered. Too quickly, I had grown up. I despised those who tore apart my life, and left me to endure the hardships as a consequence of my family background. My kindness towards others was left unnoticed, as the revolution became the sole purpose for the lives of the
I knew He was with me and I felt a huge weight on my shoulders that I was taking Him for granted. I was always giving Him pieces of my life and setting aside time for Him but I knew He deserved much more than that. I looked up soaked with tears, I saw people standing with their arms wide open. Our Father was lifting up each one of His children in big or small ways and I had never felt so lucky to be there with Him. We need Him in every moment of our lives, our world needs all of Him.
My Greatest Accomplishment A truly great accomplishment is something that lasts and requires determination and extensive effort. For me, making the Texas Small School All-State Mixed Choir was my biggest accomplishment because it opened me up to new passions, taught me how to work hard, and set me on the path I am on today. In my sophomore year, I joined choir simply to get my fine arts credit out of the way. At the time I did not have any plans for college and was uncertain on what I wanted to do with my life after high school. I honestly hated school and just wanted to get it over with.
To my parents, as cliché as this sounds, no words can describe how grateful I am to have you. There were times when I have doubted myself, times when I thought that I cannot finish this on time, times when I felt like giving up. But you always believed in me; you believed that I can finish this even ahead of time, and you served as my support so I won’t give up. You never left my side. You offered help whenever possible, even in the simplest of tasks to help me get through this.
This was one of the happiest days of my life because I knew in the future I would reflect back on my experience and think to myself I made it this far with so many complications that I know I can overcome anything life would throw at me. Although I did not graduate with honor society or one of the highest grades I still have the satisfaction of having my diploma and knowing I overcame all my failures in middle school. I’m proud to say thank you to my teacher who never let me down and always told me I can do it because of her I showed her my effort was more than
Depression is not what social media portrays it as. There will not be someone there to kiss your cuts, instead it’s being trapped in a dark place known as your mind and finding no way to escape. I would not change anything that had ever happened to me because I learned a lot and I met a great human being throughout the process. Although this was not easy, I have always had a feeling that God put this on me because He knew I was strong enough to get through it. I now use my story to help others that are battling depression and I try my best to be there for them because I know what it feels like to be completely alone with no one by your
I had a fixed schedule to get all my work done on time or before time. I work hard to be able to finish things on time or early. I never let my priorities interfere with each other to the point where I cannot do anything. I have to study for tests, but I also have to study for my bible studies teaching. I have to read many things as part as homework and I also have to read my bible.
They raised two kids: my 19-year-old brother, who is currently a freshman at the University of Georgia, and myself. Thanks to their hard work, I’m able to worry about the things I do. Never have I worried about not having food on my plate, about being denied my education, or being forced to leave everything I know and abandon my dreams. It’s easy to forget what my parents have done for me, for the opportunities and doors they have opened for me. There’s no way to understand your life–the privileges you hold–without understanding the past.
Having all those closest to me in support of my decision has been amazing. All their encouraging words and wisdom has been overwhelming, but at the same time is a huge part of my driving force to succeed. I look forward to the challenges ahead of me in this new journey at CCU. I know life isn’t always easy but that is not in God’s promise, He only promises that our journeys will be worth the wait and struggles in the end. Knowing that God is always on my side is such an amazing feeling and I am excited to say that my heart is once again on fire for Jesus right along with my students
