I graduated from high school in 2013, and attended James Madison University from August 2013 to December 2014. I began having health problems during the 2014 fall semester and when the semester ended I withdrew from the classes I had taken and returned home on a medical leave of absence. When I returned home, I spent the spring semester focusing on my health so that I would be able to get better and return to JMU. After taking the spring semester off, I decided to work at a landscaping company to help give me something to focus on again. When that went smoothly, I signed up for one summer class at my local community college. I enjoyed being able to take a class again, and received an “A”. I knew I was ready to continue pursuing my degree, but wanted to remain close to home while I continued to recover
Everyone is born with some sort of talent which needs to be developed and practiced. The Honors College offers many great opportunities for students to participate in research, community service, and leadership—all of which help us to enhance our interpersonal skills and prepare us for the job market. My particular area of interest is chemistry: I have always been interested in learning how the human body works, about drug design, and chemistry-mediated drug delivery. I was born and raised in Vietnam where traditional medicines of using herbals, and plant sources for health treatment is practiced widely. I always want to get a chance to do research on medicinal plants to ascertain its efficacy for diseases, and apply into modern medicines or natural health care products. Also, the chemistry courses that I have taken here at GSU have instilled in me a curiosity about the functions of substances that are visible only under the microscope. I feel that participating in the Honors College’s internship programs and advanced research projects will allow me to accumulate good experience, build strong relationships with my professors
Asking me to write about the History of Flagger Force is like asking me to write my autobiography. I say this because I am officially the longest tenured operations employee in King of Prussia.
Through the experience of working as youth leader for freshman connection I have grown as a better leader. To help incoming freshman was incredible experience for me. I joined freshman connection to serve school and defiantly to get knowledge and team building skills out of it, so that it can help me make my college experience better. I think I have achieved all the goals that I wanted to through working as youth leader. Additionally, not only that but also to work on community service project on bullying has really allowed me to serve as teacher helper. I liked how I was able to assist student to make poster on bullying. It was fantastic experience to help students in class to come up with ideas on how they can serve through different ways
I personally believe that the Ohio State Academy would be a tremendous opportunity for me. I see the Academy as a way to get accustomed to the rigor of college, as well as an opportunity to push myself academically. It would allow me to graduate from college quicker, which would enable post-graduate studies to be a more feasible option. Rather then continuing to be held back in my education, the Ohio State Academy would let me excel past high school curriculum. Another major advantage of this post-secondary program is the, although counter-intuitive, ability to be more involved in my high school extracurricular activities. This is because of the nature of a college schedule, rather than a standard seven hour, five days a week schedule of high school, the college schedule would be more flexible as there is less lecture time in college and more independent studying.
I want to enroll in Pre-AP English because I think it could help me in several of ways. This can help attain my goals because it helps me receive a higher gpa. I plan to contribute to Maricopa High School community by joining student council, if I join student council I would be involved in more things and can help at any events, I am committed to go above and beyond and I am self-motivated to do anything necessary.
I am writing to express my interest in applying for the Sophomore of the Year Award for the University of New England. Through my experience as a second year student at the University of New England, I have always been determined to be a leader to and a supporter of my peers. Some qualities that show that I am worthy of the Sophomore of the Year Award includes:
My choice of a future in the Human Resources Industry came from my meticulous skills in organization and planning as well as my leadership abilities. I have devoted a large amount of my high school career practicing these traits as a Social officer of the Deer Park High School’s Deer Escorts. My course load, including three college-credited classes, and commanding role on my drill team has taught me the necessary characteristics of punctuality, self-discipline and notability needed to function not only in the continuation of education but also in my career path.
By nature, I am adventurous; I like to understand the world around me. As Benjamin Franklin stated, “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” I resonate with this quote because I explore my interests best when I am fully involved in a lesson, experiment, or discussion. The Smeal College-and its student organizations-offers unparalleled business opportunities that can be tailored to fit my specific needs which will allow me to conquer in its entirety my academic and intellectual ventures.
Describe the world you come from — for example, your family, community or school — and tell us how your world has shaped your dreams and aspirations.
Semper Paratus is the moto of the United States Coast Guard. It is one of the factors in our esprit de corps. It means always ready, ready to answer all bells and whistles, at a moment’s notice. We readily jump into harm’s way and put our lives on hold for others. Many times those we don’t know. This is one of the things I carried with me; both through my service career and after. I was always the first drop what I am doing and aid another, knowing that I will stay later to circle back to finish my task. I have even taken it so far as to put my academic career on hold. I have always had extenuating circumstances that have put things before an investment in myself. I have decided that it is finally time to make me and my education the priority.
Freshman year, total paranoia, I had no idea what expect and thought everyone hated me. I set myself up for failure daily. Here I was, just some five foot eight kid with short hair and a stocky build, I wasn’t lean and muscular like most of my class or most of the people above me. I didn’t know where I belonged or where I really wanted to go with my high school career. My only friends were juniors, and they were really my brother’s friends. Kenny Jarnagain and Johnny Fletcher, I bonded with them tried to blend in with them and let them handle most stuff because I could have honestly cared less. I didn’t know what to act like to fit in or what to talk like, dress like or what grades to achieve so I suffered.
On January 7, 2016, class 20 had a spot inspection. Class 20 had made numerous mistakes last week and was acting unprofessional. The class was acting as if they were still in the first two weeks of the academy. There are still recruits who are still talking over the platoon leaders and not being respectful. Recruits were missing parts of their uniform last week and had their firearms taken away. As of this past Friday, this class has lost the privilege of wearing any of the academy uniforms.

This past December, I graduated from Tidewater Community College with an associate degree in general studies and was promoted to Petty Officer Second Class in the United States Navy. I never expected to become a community college graduate. I never imagined I would join the military, either. Up to this point, my educational and career journey has been thoroughly non-traditional—marked by twists and turns, changes of heart, and changes of plans. Going forward, however, the path is much clearer. I have spent the last three years executing a plan I made at the lowest point in my life. Hopefully, the next step of this plan will lead me to the Columbia University School of General Studies.
