My eyes automatically drifted to the tall bright palm tree that moved along with the rhythm of the wind. It’s leafs danced as they presented their welcome. The sun shined down and hugged me with warmth, giving my skin a tingling, but satisfying sensation. I had come from Virginia to California, the famous, constantly spoken of state, that finally reached my sight. The state presented its beautiful attributes to capture my wonder and mesmerization. My appreciation for the state kindled a great desire: to implant the seeds of my future into its enriched land.
Team work is one of the best traits I have learned as cheerleading championships are not won by individuals. All the athletes have to come together to learn the same lessons with one of the most important ones being that champions are made at practice. The success of the team depends on each individual simultaneously performing elite choreographed skills while overcoming mental and physical constraints which is what builds the tight bond between teammates that allows everyone to function better than they could individually. This high level of team work is required for success and safety at the same time.
As a senior at Ashley High School in New Hanover County, you have to complete a senior project. This project singlehandedly determines whether you graduate or not. It was second semester, my classmates and I were sitting in Mrs. Ventre 's class knowing exactly what was coming. We were scared, nervous, intimidated, and so much more. The way she helped me through this huge project has stuck with me to this day.
In the future, I will continue to use teamwork even if it's not in a team setting. In that team environment, working together every day in practice, I learned how to work efficiently and communicate effectively with a group of people different from who I am. I was a self-taught goalie. I taught myself how to
.On any given day there will be a group of students working on their associates degrees that have been there long before I started to attend Wayne County Community College. They are a little older than I am, most being around the age of 23. They spend their time playing video games while I stand mind going to class. I consider this group to be friends but I am scared this is what my future will be like if I remain at this institution. I do not want to lose sight of my goals.
My time in 4-H, working, volunteering, and my first semester of college have provided me with leadership opportunities and experiences that were often challenging. In order to cope with these challenges, I had to develop skills that would allow me to move forward. The first of which is the ability to work well on a team. This skill is one that I’ve had to practice in many environments such as completing a group project, playing softball, working in food service, and volunteering as a camp counselor.
My Senior Spring Project (SSP) got off to a quick and exciting start. I have enjoyed my four mini-courses, my two independent studies, tennis, and the one-on-one weekly meetings I have with the various teachers who supervise these activities. Through SSP, I am slowly learning how to manage my activities outside of my regular school routine. In the first week, I had trouble managing my reading assignments from one mini-course (4 hours) along with the work from my two independent projects (total of 12 hours). I have never had so much independent work over a week that was not split into separate homework assignments. Although I struggled with time management in this area during the first week, I am now making it more manageable by setting specific

Going through daily life you experience many different things, and most of them are the daily rigors of life that you do not think twice about. However, sometimes you have experiences that are not part of your average day, and those are the experience, I believe you learn the most from.
To balance all these expectations, I have had to make an effort to find myself and explore my character so that my self-discovery could guide me to make decisions for my future. This, in turn, has matured me in ways many teens my age have not had a chance to experience. Though I don 't have a concise plan for my future, I have decided that I want to focus on receiving a education that will bring about a career involved in helping others, but is flexible enough that I can spend time with my family. I could not have set this goal for myself I had not been tested by the different components I faced in my life. It is uncertain where I would be today if I had not experienced the challenges brought upon by moving to another country or living with parents who struggled to integrate into the world around them.

Since I was six, I’ve had my life after graduating college planned out. I would choose a job that I loved, and once my husband and I are successful in our careers, I would have two beautiful little girls. I would get to dress them up like dolls, and they’d look as adorable as I was. I wouldn’t be as protective as my mom, I would let my daughter go to any of the sleepovers she wanted to go to. My daughter wouldn’t have to listen as her friends’ made plans, wishing that she could be included as well.
I have always hated writing about myself, and I always dreaded assignments in school where I had to describe myself. I always wanted to avoid doing these assignments because I did not want to sound narcissistic, or self-absorbed. I dislike people like that now, because I used to be one of those people. It took many lessons learned before I humbled myself; I am still learning to humble myself today with recent experiences I have had. Although I hate to write about myself, I have always liked to reflect on myself. I spend a significant amount of time just thinking about myself as I go throughout my day. I constantly question myself: why am I the way that I am, what could I have done better here, what is my place in the world, etc. In the context of this paper, I have come to a conclusion. In the past, I was a leader. Now, I realized I have failed. Despite what my MBTI test may say, I am a leader no more.
I am currently in the process of figuring out what is next in my life. I do know I want to provide a successful future while I am able to.

If I chose not to get into medicine I would like to have married my beloved boyfriend that we are currently 4 years in. I would like to have form a family also; at least two or three kids to raise.
