Throughout my life I have been blessed with more opportunities than many other people my age. This is why I strive to act on all of the opportunities I have been given, while also satisfying my passion for giving back to those who are less fortunate. Firstly, one of the most beneficial events in shaping myself was attending the National Student Leadership Conference. Hundreds of students are chosen annually for their outstanding leadership qualities within their communities. During the one and half week camp, students not only focus on improving their leadership qualities, but also get hands on experience in the field of their choice.
I believe that my placement at Extendicare has given me many learning opportunities, where I have succeeded. When I was first thinking about my second year field placement my main choice was to gain experience with youth or adolescents, and was a bit unwilling to gain experience in long-term care workplace. However I have enjoyed my time here at Extendicare, I have learned so much and have accomplished a lot. When it comes to Crystal’s department, I have grasped the concepts of the admission process as well as her networking agencies such as CCAC, The Hospitality Network and The Ministry of Long Term Care. I’ve accomplished in providing tours to families and potential residents who are interested in the facility.
As we all know, college can be very expensive. With the scholarships and grants, college student-athletes can go to school for free and get their day-to-day needs such as food, housing, clothes, etc. Ackerman and Scotts, purpose is to show that college is a learning experience and with the help of college sports, the student-athletes will have a chance to grow and be successful in life rather than being exploited. However, critics believe that college student-athletes should be paid salary, like professional athletes, because they want people to see the “athletes are the rule, not the expectation” (par 11). They want the audience to think that it’s a rule for student-athletes to go play pro after two years, will no expectation.
I switched schools three times before finally settling into an alternative school. As a result of my hard work and life choices I have caught up to my junior year in little more than two months. My siblings are in stable, healthy environments and I no longer am under such a tremendous amount of stress. I’m on track and even ready to plan for college in the future. Hard work can lead to a multitude of benefits.
I was always told by my parents to live life, and enjoy every moment I got. Like every other kid, I am a reflection of my parents values. Through various means, my parents taught me to be mature, optimistic, and cooperative. As an older sister, I was granted many responsibilities from a young age. I was given a lot of chores when I was younger, mainly because my mom had to take care of my brother.
My education was an unusual one. I was mostly homeschooled with a homeschool group which met once a week supplementing my at home classes. Thanks to this, I have adapted to learn independently, which has benefited me greatly in any academic endeavor. This adaptation has benefited me especially in college courses, where a large portion of the work is done outside of class. While I had gained a love of education previously, I had never settled on a subject to focus on until high school.
I am a good candidate for the Reisher Scholarship because I am hard working and self motivated. The value of education is something that I have understood since a very young age. This scholarship would help me substantially because my mom is a single parent with two kids in college. With this scholarship money I will be able to become more successful and reach my goals in life. My completing my degree I will be one step closer to becoming a physical therapist and helping improve my clients quality of life.
Obtaining a postsecondary education is important to me because I have a passion for helping people and learning. As a first-generation postsecondary student, I understand the values of education. I grew up with my parents always telling me that I am lucky because I will have a chance to get an education, most people live struggling to make ends meet because they didn 't have a chance, just like my parents. As someone who comes from having very little, I always prided myself on the fact that I can, at least, have an education. Also, from the volunteered work I have done every chance I get I believe a postsecondary education will give me a chance to give back.
leaving my door open, talking to her about her day, and starting conversations. The only reason I mention this is because before I came to college, I thought an RA was simply, a student leader who would be friends with all the people on their floor and would set up fun programs so they could all interact and everyone would become a big happy family. While this could be a possibility, although
Working hard in college can only be good. Getting a job while you 're in college will be even better. Having a job/money during college can help you start paying off student loans and books. My junior year i worked really hard outside of school. I did anything i could to earn money.
