Now I know how to make better choices when I am faced with a difficult decision and also easy choices. With easy choices I mean to choose between buying new shoes this black Friday, or save the money to buy more food while on a college budget. Applying Liz Murray’s principles of making empowered choices to my own life would include to keep waking up early and going to school every day like I am doing right now in my first semester in college. It also includes studying for tests and quizzes and doing homework. The reasons for making these empowered choices are because if I don’t do the previous mentioned items, I would fail my classes, and be unable to get a college degree.
Greater possibility of class suspensions - More suspensions might incur due to bad weather reports on the term break months. In my opinion, more study and research must be done before entering to the new academic calendar and yet the issue is still debatable on some schools. As said by Chairperson of CHED (Commission on Higher Education), Patricia Licuanan (March, 2014), it is not advisable to shift the calendar year with no prior researches. She also emphasized that the June start of classes is the most feasible.
As a student, I learn the best through experience, applying what I learn rather than just studying it and putting it on paper. Through my research project I have the opportunity to use what I have learned in class and gain a better grasp of the material. The project provides me with the opportunity to not only improve my comprehension of material but also helps to guide my professional goals. After receiving my bachelor’s degree I hope to pursue further research in the field of biotechnology and help to innovate new technologies for the health care industry. My current project has these implications and has given me a chance to explore what I want to do for my career.
My belief is that interventions can be put in place along with social programs giving them the best opportunity to flourish. Another population that holds a special place in my heart is the geriatric population. I believe that it my duty to help the population that has once cultivate our society to adjust to and cope with problems they may experience. In addition to working with children and geriatrics I have also worked with people who were diagnosed with Post traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, traumatic brain injury and Alzheimer 's disease to name a few. These experiences have allowed me to understand the role of a social worker, as I have opportunity to be exposed to multi-disciplinary treatment teams.
My experience in the JAG program has further taught me responsibility and also trustworthiness. These services have also taught me patience and positivity, which are occasionally necessary because children can be challenging to work with if they are not having a good day. These services show how I have vital leadership skills, which could be necessary in the many services Carrboro High School’s National Honor Society provides to the community. Due to my experience in a wide range of service, I have become exceptionally adjustable in terms of who I can work with. I work well with children, as shown by my camp hours and my work with the refugee club.
Education plays an important role to allow me to move up the social ladder. Although my family cannot provide me a sufficient financial support to continue my postgraduate studies, I am able to finish my undergraduate studies due to the assistance of TSFS and learn some professional knowledge. Also, I can learn foreign language course in the university so that I can have a higher competitiveness in the future occupation. Indeed, the undesirable financial condition of my family’s current social class position may cause some disadvantage and avoid me to get some life chances like the opportunities to study postgraduate courses overseas. This may also affect me to get a higher professional job in the future.
I have always been the type of person that receives an immense amount of gratification from helping others. I believe this goal is realistic due to my preconception of the career, love for helping others and experience. I've always loved helping other, so when I made it to middle school I joined an organization called builders club were we gave back to the community in various
By pursuing a teacher credential in mild to moderate disabilities I know I can achieve this goal because I carry a great passion for education and like to help students in need. Throughout my life I have made many friendships with individuals who have disabilities and seen the lack of support many receive in schools. Motivating me to support them in any possible way and inspiring me to became a special education teacher because I want to support them and other student’s in their education. Also, currently, being an instructional aide at an elementary school I have learned that becoming a teacher is something I would love to do every day because I get an opportunity to spend time with students, while I am teaching them and supporting them, it truly makes me happy and fulfilled to know I can make a difference in a child’s life. Pursuing my post baccalaureate education at Cal State La and continuing my program will fully prepare me to achieve my goal to become a special education teacher and become the best teacher, mentor, and supporter for
Like I said writing was hard for me. I think the reason being that I was able to read well so I didn 't have much to write about other than the stuff I heard. Even then, If I did write was wasn 't going to be able to read it. Now that I could do both better my doors have open
I want to learn as many languages as I can in order to connect with people on a global scale. Also, I hope to build a connection with my professors and mentors to learn about their journey in their educational career. Moreover, I plan to combine a variety of subjects such as Psychology, Philosophy, Sociology, Biology, Geology, Politics, Journalism, and English Literature in conjunction with Anthropology in order to think critically and holistically. Lastly, I aim to supplement my learning from inside of the classroom with what I learn outside of the classroom in order to grow into a well-rounded
This is important because I would like to maintain the connections that I already have in some psychology labs and be able to continue working in them. More importantly, however, staying here this summer would mean that, while many of the classes do not go towards my major, I could spend more time taking interdisciplinary classes, which would allow me to expand my current perspective of the world. This is very advantageous when it comes to applying to graduate schools, and being a psychologist in general, as I will be better able to relate to those in circumstances that differ from my own. My father works ground maintenance at Macomb Community College and, due to the lack of snow, has not received as much overtime as he normally does.
I intend to further push my dedication beyond my education, and into the work I choose to follow up with in life. If I were invited to attend ASMSA, I would focus my studies around a science stand point, with classes such as Biomedical Physics, Anatomy, Physiology, Immunology, etc.; my studies would be limitless. ASMSA will advance my learning skills and help to prepare me into becoming successful. ASMSA’s rigorous courses help students, willing to challenge themselves, to be more studious and driven in their work. Living in my work, would allow me to ‘one on one’ experience the difficulty and embrace the challenges ASMSA offers.
Now if this doesnt convince you of that the claim is legitamate then im not sure what will. It is scientifically proven that you can spend more time on this planet with people you love, doing things you love to do, if you make the choice to go to college and earn a degree. Subsequently, the purpose of this essay is not for the benefit of me as the author. It is to benefit you as the reader.
This is currently my first year enrolling in Richland College, but the experience is just the beginning. The earliest memory of reading was all the syllabus that each class had before school started. I chose to be in college because I’m striving for a better future, instead of working at a retail store and less pay for all the work I’ve contributed. Being an expert reader can help me out in the long run because it helps me with comprehension and critical thinking when I encounter a real world problem. Now getting in idea of what we are doing in class, I think you are doing just fine helping me prepare for what is ahead of me
