Wilt played outstanding in high school, which led to over 200 universities recruiting him. He chose the University of Kansas and in his first varsity game he scored 52 points. Wilt led the Jayhawks to the NCAA finals, but lost in double overtime to North Carolina. He averaged a little bit over 30 points a game and was selected twice to All-American teams during his college career. Just like in high school, Wilt played fantastic in college and he knew that it was time to go pro.
I held interviews and hired over twenty associates for the season, my team and I completely revamped the stock room. We did everything, from the front door to the back door. I worked 70-80-hour work weeks for almost three weeks, to get the store ready for the season and for a regional visit. Well, when my boss came in she was amazed at the progress. My Regional Manager came in a few hours later and had nothing positive to say.
In May 2013, I was awarded a Bachelor degree of Science in Management Information Systems from KFUPM. When I look back to my journey to achieve that B.S., I see an amazing adventure, full with extensive learning, experience and personal achievements. Since the beginning of my B.S journey, I faced major obstacles that strengthened my personality, gave me confidence, and a great deal of experience. I had to work in several low salary jobs while struggling to maintain my collage studies. In some days, I worked for 18 hours a day, and that was the case until September 2006, where I was hired in a decent full-time job at KFUPM.
My dad has been teaching me the benefits of saving money and the disadvantages of spending money since I hardly knew what a dollar was. I’m 31 years old and to this day, I still get told what to do with my money. When I was 16 years old, I attained my first job. Soon after, whether it was because I was spending all my money on “cool” car parts or my dad just wanted to show me early how to save money, he took me to a local credit union to become a member and since then, I’m a member of the same credit union, and two banks. The great thing about credit unions is that it offers a variety of banking services to its members.

Although all of these comings and goings have a place in my heart, my biggest achievement was becoming class president and planning the 2015 prom. If prom was a hill, I climbed it at a snail 's pace. As the class president, I oversaw the organizing and fundraising involved. The one-night event required an entire year of planning, and as the president, I received my fair-share of criticism from my peers. However, when the time finally came, I realized that I was only human, and what I contributed to the prom was more than excellent.
The learning curve was hard, and I didn’t make the cut for Freshman Region. This really made me feel down, as just the year before, I was the 2nd overall chair in my class. For a few weeks, my confidence really wavered; However, with the encouragement of some upperclassmen, I eventually decided to move on to the next thing. All-Region, the real deal was only a month away. By using my failure as motivation, I discovered a work-ethic I never knew I had, practicing more than I had before.
I was a little bit angry and said no to him. A few days later, when I was walking to my apartment in a cold evening, I saw Richard Turner sleeping on the sidewalk without any cover. I felt sad and regretful. A jacket meant little for me, but for him, it meant warmth and even better life. As I was feeling sorry for Richard Turner, two students approached him and put a bag containing two new blankets besides him.
“When the doctors came they said she had died of heart disease – of joy that kills” (Chopin 3). When in reality she had just lost the joy she had from her husband’s death which shattered her heart. “Someone was opening the front door with a latchkey. It was Brently Mallard who entered, a little travel-stained, composedly carrying his grip-sack and umbrella. He had been far from the scene of the accident, and did not even know there had been one.
I think the hardest part of him dying was that he died not knowing who we were, why there were so many people always trying to get him to remember things, wondering why he couldn 't remember yesterday. I always thought that it was kind of funny that we remembered him with dog tags that he probably didn 't know he had and a flag that was once laid on his coffin and that was handed to my crying grandma from the military men who folded the flag. When I think about his life, I think how lucky he was. He didn 't have to go to Korea, instead, he got married, had kids, opened a store and taught guys just joining the military about the military. He did so much is his lifetime and yet the last ten years of his life that was all forgotten, all the stories, the moments, the memories all gone.
Michael and Scottie both highly impacted their high school teams, but Michael just the next big thing. He received a full scholarship ride to the University of North Carolina.

I was inundated with an unexpectedly heavy workload in even the first three weeks and ended up pulling my first all-nighter the day before speech day, beginning to compose my personal statement at around 2AM. I stumbled into the auditorium later that afternoon, bleary-eyed and exhausted, and slurred my way through the speech. Needless to say, I lost tragically, and my dreams of becoming the next Barack Obama were temporarily shattered. However, I didn’t let this first loss slow me down. I continued to press forward, completing my sophomore class president speech weeks ahead of time and even laminating it several days before speech day in an effort to present myself in a professional light.
