This past year has been particularly hard and I reached a point financial that I had to apply for a one-time emergency scholarship fund in order to remain in school. My parents are unable to help support me financially due to debt. If I do not receive additional funding I will have to leave my university and put my education on hold
My American Dream For over 200 years, people have been coming to the U.S. looking for a better life and a better opportunity to accomplish their dreams. The American Dream is to become a fighter, to overcome obstacles, and to be focused. The American Dream is different for everyone, for someone like David Ortiz, David’s dream was to represent his nation for the whole world to see but mainly in America and Dominican Republic to show his family his success, which was to become a professional baseball player. David Ortiz might not grow up in the richest part of the Dominican Republic, but he got to the place that he is now because of his effort, and because he worked for it he achieved his dream. Today David Ortiz is known as “Big Papi” because he is big in his career.
Role models are a big part in peoples' lives like Beyonce for girls' lives, girls always want to have her qualities her looks, personality and her body. King gave a famous speech called "I have a Dream" to tell everyone one day our world will be like this if we keep standing up to equality. King also wrote a letter called "Letter From Birmingham Jail" that he sent to the clergy men. Dr. Martin Luther King. Jr. is a great role model for today young people because he used his feeling and knowledge to change the segregation in the United States.
Studying abroad will afford me the opportunity to experience dealing with diversity and cultural differences on a first-hand basis which in turn will help prepare me for a job in my desired field. I have always been interested in living and traveling abroad and would make the most out of this experience not only personally, but professionally as well. Question 2 What specific goals do you have for study abroad and how do you think you might achieve these goals, both on your own and through this USAC program? (about 300-350 words) My goal is to work towards a minor in International Business and further my credits required for the CPA exam. By taking classes with the USAC program and building upon my study abroad, this experience will limit the remaining classes necessary at my home university.
Tough Hope Imagine you want to make a team but you didn 't make it well that happened to me. This is the time I went through tough hope. After I didn 't make the team I practiced really hard to make the team next year. My journey through tough hope has affected me in many ways like this one. When I didn 't make the baseball team I really wanted to make.
The problem arose when I was preparing to find work on campus, to supplement some of my educational costs. I went to the international office to pick up my I-20 which was not available to me because they didn’t receive it through Sevis. Immediately I was shocked and began to phone the other school because my status was in limbo, or could have already been terminated. I found out that it had been barely terminated by Huston Community College because I was no longer a full-time student there. However, I still fulfilled my requirement of being a full- student through a different Brigham Young University.
I have always regretted dropping out of college. I had to decide what was more important to me. Trying to get a higher education to help me succeed in the workforce. Or try to save my marriage which was in shambles. So I decided that I would have to put my education on hold, until I could get myself together.
My first semester I had many obstacles; however, it was worth it because at the end I learned to not give up. An obstacle I overcame was getting classes. Since, I applied late to school due to not being able to decide which college would benefit me more I was behind with enrolling, for classes causing me to not be able to get classes. There were barely any classes left for me, but I eventually found the three classes I needed. Getting classes was difficult because it took me a week to finally get the classes I need.
I said to myself, “I was wrong about the USA people.” After all, I got home and rest for two days. I was very afraid to go out not because I don’t like to go out. I do like to go out but I was afraid that people will … at me because I did not know how to speak English. Then I stated my high school in 2009. On the first day I was so scared to go to school.
I did not really wanted to go to a community college because all my life I dreamed of going straight to a 4 year university (in my country, it would be a 5-year university) and the fact that I had to start in another place just made me feel confused and anxious, but I had no other choice, since I knew I wouldn’t attend the other colleges and I did not want to take a sabbatical year. At the same time, I had a few friends whom would go to the community college, so we all started the process and to make our schedules. Since I am a foreign student and I came to the U.S. during my sophomore year of high school, I had to take an ESL test (English for Speakers of other Languages). I was place into the last level of ESL, I knew that my English was really good, but at the same time I knew that I had to improve, I wanted it to be at a college level, so I took two ESL classes and I think that this was one of the best experiences I could have had during my first semester of college, I could reconnect with myself and with people, I was surrounded by different people from all over the world, and although I already had the same experience when I arrived to the U.S. and I was sent to the last level of ESOL in high school, this time I was experiencing it in another way, I would say in a more mature way. All my classmates were amazing people and I made new
Due to some hidden quirks and fine print I ended up losing all my financial aid when the school started their football team. Go Huskies. I left school and went to work full time. I tried with motivation from my ex-fiancé to go back after a year and a half, but then family issues got in the way. I took some me time, and now I think I want to give this one more try.
He was a wreck his mom was to saddened to see him like this. A few weeks later she had enough so she signed him up for a police officer job. “I don’t want to do this, I’m a failure,” he said with a disappointing look on his face. “C 'mon this a new chapter just try it out,” his mom responded. “Okay but only for a day,” he replied.
I don’t want to fail and have to take the class over again or take an extra semester of classes because I didn’t pass one with a high enough proficiency to move on. I also have second thoughts about being here at all. Many people are gaining college educations and are unable to find work after graduation. This leaves them jobless and in major debt. This is a contributing factor to the growing number of graduates who move in with their parents again after they
