I made friends easily and felt a part of the groups. I never considered that who I have always been will be looked at differently by others. It was not until I got into college did I finally realize I was different than the majority. Before going to college, I had already known I wanted to join a sorority. Despite the negative image social media has portrayed sororities, I knew there was more than parties and hazing.
Small-scale class sizes gives me the feeling that I 'm more than another body on campus. Instructors can take the time to get to know you on a personal level and help you grow to reach your goals. As a matter of fact, telling my guidance counselor I hoped for USC Upstate to be the school I attend was a surprise. In all the senior meetings she had, I was the only student who even considered USC Upstate as an option. However, that didn 't stop me from looking.
Just like in Vietnam, I started to realize that being shy around new people could keep you from becoming friends with them and there was nothing to fear. Typically independent, after the lacrosse season I appreciated the team spirit and comradery and in turn, it gave me ever more confidence. I contributed more in my classes and made a lot more friends in
Of the three skills that I agree with the most are kindness and care. Any sign of a good person is the ability to care for someone. The reason I think these are the most important are because situations to use these skills show up every day. One of my favorite things at DeSales was the fact that everyone holds doors for anyone. It does not matter if you are a freshmen holding the door for a senior, or a teacher holding the door for freshmen.
I am very glad that I attended the Discover Your Major Day event because I feel as though if I did not go, I would not have realized that I wanted to add a minor or a concentration to my four years of study here at the University of Memphis. The event met my expectations and even more. I did not know that I would get as much information as I did and that the faculty would be so voluntary to help. At first, I assumed that I would walk around to each of the tables, pick up information sheets, and take it with me to look over myself later on. But to my surprise, everyone was very helpful and I got all of my questions answered.
I never had to solve nor had encountered such problems before, but I always met them with resilience. I know that despite how difficult a situation might be, I will endore it successfully. The spirits I had gained from that challenges of immigrating will help me to thrive in academic
Likewise, I was never aware of the tremendous amount of happiness and sense of togetherness that comes with seeing the faces of students enjoying our sponsored events and other organizations hearing about our efforts on campus. Being the president of SHAC has truly been a blessing to me and has opened my eyes to my true potential as a leader. I no longer shy away from speaking in front of large groups, question whether or not to share my opinions on topics and believe that there is only one way to successfully accomplish a goal. Although I would love to say that SHAC has helped Brady Health and students here on campus, I know that it is being in SHAC that has truly helped me. I have developed into a person that I would not have recognized during my early days as a college student if it has not been for this leadership role.
As a friend, Nallely Mosher, had said, “I think I’m more myself when I’m cosplaying, I get to do the things that I like and be surrounded [by] people with the same interests that I have…” and she couldn’t be more correct. The cosplay community is a safe place for anyone and everyone to be creative and have fun with what they love. As for the community itself, it’s a loving, welcoming place for those who feel outcast
I am happy to say that none of my fears were realized and this experience has been one of the most educational and fulfilling that I have experienced in my time at American University. I have yet to encounter an issue that was not covered in training. My faculty and I are not only on the same page the majority of the time, but I have found her to be a wonderfully supportive resource for me personally as
“No human being could have passed a happier childhood than myself. My parents were possessed by the very spirit of kindness and indulgence. We felt that they were not the tyrants to rule our lot according to their caprice, but the agents and creators of all the many delights which we enjoyed. When I mingled with other families I distinctly discerned how peculiarly fortunate my lot was, and gratitude assisted the development of filial
Deciding to attend Texas A&M University was both a hardship and immense, opportunity in my life. Coming from a close knit background, and possessing a very family oriented character, my decision to come to this incredible institution was one out of my comfort zone. If I was to be asked one year ago, If I could ever see myself standing on this marvelous campus, attending one of the top schools in the nation, I would have honestly responded, no. My counselors would have said no, my friends, my college advisor, my family. The answer would not have been yes, not because I wasn 't capable of meeting the standards to attend, but because there seemed more obstacles in my way than there was forces pushing me forward.
The appreciation you receive makes it all the work worth the time and trouble. In addition, when your own motivation is what drives you, success is not a challenge in the slightest. NJHS gives opportunities unlike any other organization that our school provides for us and I am glad to be a part of such a prestigious group of intelligent young adults. The values imparted to me will stick with me for my entire life and the wisdom I have gained will aid me and guide me in everything I do. I greatly appreciate your consideration and look forward to having the chance to have an impact on others’
