Throughout my entire life, I have challenged myself not only academically but also to better myself, and my community. I try my best at everything that I do, whether that is in my schoolwork, at home, or at work after school. Often times when people hear that I am an only child, they assume that I get everything handed to me, but that assumption is completely wrong. My parents have always taught me that you must work for success. I believe that I have been pretty independent for most of my life, not only because my parents got divorced when I was ten years old, and because I am an only child, but also because my dad moved to Colorado leaving me with only my mom and grandparents in town as my family.
My family is very inspiring to me. I am very thankful that my parents brought me into this world. Growing up my parents always showed me how exactly things work in life. One of the hardest things that I had to accept was that I could not have everything I wanted. There were times when my parents spoiled me but I was always taught to be thankful of the things that I had and to not be so selfish.
I feel very fortunate to have been raised in a family where education is a priority. I was taught to work hard and never give up. Leadership is also a very important pillar in the National Honor Society. A leader is a person who guides others with their actions or words and influences others in a positive way. I feel that I am a leader in many ways.
He taught us to love those around us and don't take anyone for granted. Atticus made me the man I am today he taught me most everything I know. I miss all the wonderful time we had together and i would do anything to spend a day with him again. Atticus always gave everyone a chance. He believed that everyone had at least a little nice in them, but some may just have to be looked at more to see it.
The gift that Adam offers is simply “being”. Nouwen helps Adam to share his gift by attending to his needs, like getting him dressed, bathing him, telling him stories. Nouwen writes with gratitude about Adam’s gift, “ Out of his broken body and broken mind emerged a most beautiful human being, offering me a greater gift than I would ever offer him” (Nouwen, p.121). Nouwen’s family in the Daybreak community for the handicapped, became his most fulfilling ministry, even though he taught and spoke at Notre Dame, Yale, and Harvard. The experience of living at Daybreak deepened Nouwen’s life in the rich gift of peace by the discipline of knowing
After all, his courage and love for our country made how he is remembered today. Still, everyone wants to be like Colin. And yet, he did it all by this one saying. “What I really wanted was to do the best I could every single day. By doing my best every day, day after day, year after year I finally got to the
Helping him do ordinary tasks gives me a profound fulfillment and joy. I have a lot of self-efficacy in my values and skill relating to this career path. I will continue to build on my personal traits, as well as professional experience, to appeal to potential employers when I reach that stage in my career path. Pediatric Occupational Therapists address many different areas, being cognitive skills, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, social skills, and self-care tasks. Weekly schedules can vary, depending on the child and his/her needs.
The busyness of work, family, and children have restricted my own freedom of time. Reading has become my favorite way of personal freedom without having to leave home. My favorite author at this present time is Beth Moore. She meticulously portrays God’s word and opened my eyes to the strength and power of God’s word for me today. God created me and has a specific purpose for me to fulfill.
I am a reform Jew and to me my religion is very important. To me my religion is amazing, for it makes me feel like a happy and a whole person. It makes me feel a part of something bigger than I am, and all my traditions feel like a truth to me. It has only been in the past couple of years that I have been so engaged, but it seems like it has always been a large part of me that I just needed to explore with an open mind, and so I have decided to to learn as much as I can. Even though my middle school is not a Jewish school I still feel a part of the community.
This does not affect my decision this just makes me appreciate it even more. My teachers in the past years have always said great things about me. My parents give me a lot of support and always believe in me. Most importantly I believe in myself. I believe I would be an amazingly positive influence and a great member of the Nation Junior Honor Society.
