It was a very sad moment when I had to say goodbye, the words didn 't even wanted to come out of my mouth. Whenever, I felt like a part of me were staying with them and that my life will not be the same. Since, I was just 12 years old and I had no idea about how leaving my country and part of my family was going to change my life, I thought that was just stupid. So that, I were angry and crying for almost one week. It is really sad and hard when you have to leave the people you lived with for 12 years and not only that, if no also leave your country without having no idea how you were going to live and how was everything in another country.
Time was running out with no way out, I was slowly suffocating. But when I woke up and went to school I wanted to never come back. I wanted a time machine to go back to see what I had done wrong. Why did it have to be on the day of my birthday? The day I waited the anterior year to be rejected by my brother, best friend, and backstabber.
It will be the milestone that I will look back upon to think how much my life has changed for the better after what has happened during my time of growth at Brophy. My continuing period of growth has transformed me even though it does not seem like it at times, I have definitely noticed beneficial developments within myself throughout my time at Brophy. After my Brophy experience has concluded regardless if I get to walk and graduate, I know for a fact that my time at Brophy has not been worthless but a life changing experience with lessons that I will carry throughout life and teach to others as I keep growing and maturing not only for the good of my well being but for the people that care about me the most. I know with any graduate from Brophy, it is impossible not to at least know and experience each of the Grad at Grad traits first hand before leaving and advancing towards the next stages in life. The years spent at Brophy greatly embedded each Grad at Grad trait within my mentality despite poor judgment the traits are existent within the essence of who I am after my four years at Brophy enduring
Success Success is achieving something that you have set for yourself. Something you have set for yourself can be a long or short term goal. Do you want to work in a fast food place all of your life or in a factory that makes a little amount of money? The Art Of Getting By has several successful characters. For example, George was always one to extol for his art he drew or painted.
Throughout my life, in moving around from state to state, I 've come to the realization that it has negatively impacted my social life more than I would have assumed. Moving around continuously while still in grade school, promisingly makes it suck to have no choice but to be the new kid every year. Going from school to school has gradually made me socially awkward/picky in making friends because, I become hesitant in making friendships that just may only last for a year rather than it be long-lasting. Consequently, I’ve always thought to myself that I would never gain a lifelong friend that I’d grow to visit often and have a great relationship with after graduating. Though I thought that way often, in my junior year of high school, I seemed
My brother has changed my life and my perspective. Watching my brother grow up has changed me for the better. I used to be unhappy with everything in my life, my parents splitting and the aftermath, but now I am happy and it is all because of my baby brother. He makes me laugh and smile and makes me give thanks for the little things in life. My brother has shown me to worry less and has taught me a lot about patience which are qualities I did not portray before.
At the age of 11, I move from California to Toronto. The move brought many hardships that still have an impact to this day. Moving meant not being able to see my lifelong best friend daily and also resulted in not having a relationship with my father, until recently. This also meant having to leave the only place I knew, and familiarizing myself with new scenery, new street names and a new house. Not only did I leave the town I grew up in, but I left what I feel was a better educational system.
I was over 300 miles away from my mom and friends in Tennessee, and over 100 miles from anyone else I knew. I was alone, so I had to learn to take care of myself and worry about me. When I finally said it, she started crying and I felt terrible. But she agreed and finally understood why I was acting the way I was.
Despite these occurrences, I am extremely optimistic about what is to come. We gained an incredible group of freshmen who want to learn and improve and overall be a part of something great by contributing everything they have to offer. They have inspired me, as I hope to inspire them. I want to leave a lasting impact on this band and I think that my cards are lined up perfectly to do just that. This band program has shaped me into the person I am today.
I was born on August 16, 1996. My mother has always told me that she knew I would be an impatient person: not only did I come a week early, there were only three hours between her water breaking and hearing my first cries. I was born into a somewhat poor family, but we always had enough to scrape by. A lot of people look back on their childhoods fondly, but I’m afraid I can’t say the same.
Volunteering at a hospice company was a turning point in my life. I find the United States is still segregated by age. I never truly understood that ageism existed, I assumed it was a thing of the past or only happened in extremely rare cases. This is my second year volunteering to help talk to patients, and my first year writing someone’s life story, her legacy. Most young people never get a chance to interact with the elderly, and are separated because of the fast paced society we have built around those 18-30 years olds.
I 'm sure that college fantasy will change and morph into something else as I change and morph with passing time. Likewise, my life goals will most likely change, however the underlying theme seems to remain the same. I want to be able to say that I went through and finished college, went traveling in my studies while I am still young, and made meaningful connections to people that I love. Most of all, I want to make a difference I can be proud of, and remain happy throughout my long adventure of life where ever it takes me. Now that you have a bit more insight to some of the decisions and experiences in my life, maybe you can understand why you would get so many different answers when asked who I am.
Before coming to Job Corps, I had days when I was so depressed, I just stop doing what was right and from that point on, the street was the only I saw myself. The family was my enemy, friends were no longer there, at least the ones I thought I had. I didn’t want to talk to anyone because I had nothing positive to say. I can honestly say my biggest mistake I made as youngster, was me giving up on school. I could have cared less about all the wrong I have done.
