I promise that if given the opportunity, I will be a responsible, honest, creative, committed, positive, and productive leader. I will also do my best to show good character, leadership, citizenship, service, and scholarship because I know that these qualities are very important for the National Junior Honors Society and that they are also very important to me. Thank you for your consideration, Katy
His actions towards Danny and Reb Saunders highlight his forgiving-nature. While the normal person would react with hatred, Reuven acted with understanding and grace. Likewise, many people admired Reuven for his intelligence. He worked hard by reading to acquire knowledge. Equally, Reuven’s determination drove him to success.
The last pillar is something that I feel is one of my best qualities. In school and in my athletics, I really like to help people and want to be a leader. Having character is something that is really important, but to have character you have to have respect and I feel that I have that quality. I represent my school in a respectful manner in and outside out school. With that I feel that I show a lot of character of who I
I am lucky to have work with such a diverse group of people who treated me as a fellow worker rather than “just a student”. My placement helped my realize the value of occupational therapy and made me realize how much I appreciate OT practice. I learned to love occupational therapy because we help maximize the independence of a client to enhance their quality of life. Lyndhurst was able to provide many learning experiences for me to help prepare me for the working world. I am very excited to apply my new skills and hopefully become a great clinician just like my
People often describe me as a loving, friendly, and quiet person. These characteristics may be due to the fact of what I value most in life. What I value most gives me a reason to do the things I do or act the way I do. Furthermore, they are the sole purpose as to why I continue with my life and why I am the person I am today. The things I appreciate that shape me as a person are family, reading, music, health, movies/tv shows, and of course friends.
In my sessions one of the values I follow is that I respect my students and also speak gently. I prefer that the students look at my session as a time in their day where they can have fun while learning. I feel that students in our educational system tend to have a lot of theoretical work, so I would want my students to enjoy their time during the session. Something else I value while coaching is that I trust my students. I found that trusting my students helped in building a good
Quotes such as “It is during our darkest moments that we must focus to see the light” , “Change your thoughts and change your world” and “Believe you can and you’re halfway there” all inspire me and keep me in a positive frame of mind as well as the words and meanings from these quotes match up with many of my beliefs. There are also people who inspire me to do better such as my parents who have instilled many great values and belief systems in my life and also lead by such a great example. I also believe in honesty from other people as trust plays a big part in my life. I believe that having a healthy body leads to a healthy mind and this is why I enjoy sport , particularly cricket. I enjoy playing sport because I strongly believe that
I know that I will be with these same friends in the future because they have the same values as me. We all try to help each other with problems that we have relating to our futures, like looking at colleges and getting good grades through studying together and tutoring each other. At the same time, we help each other have fun and realize that life should be full of quality times with the people you love and shouldn’t always be so serious. I believe that it is important to have friends that care about you because they can help you in all kinds of situations and impact your life
She mentions, “Locate a resilient kid and you will also find a caring adult or several-who have guided him.” This quotes strongly relates to me because I believe that if you really want to impact a student, teachers, parents or a community you must build a rapport and a strong relationship. In addition, Perry and Delpit (1998) mention in their book, “In order to teach you, I must know you.” This is a quote that I strongly relate to and maybe it is because my love language is quality time. Therefore, it makes complete sense and I can connect with this quote because I feel that in order for me to know my students’ I must invest time learning about them. In addition, a way of doing this is my learning about the students’ culture, traditions, and language. Once an educator learns about the students’ culture then they are able to incorporate it into their
INTRODUCTION “Meaningful and thoughtful appreciation, shows that you value a person’s efforts”. Personally I think it is a great idea for students to be paid for having good grades. Paying students for their hard work will give them motivation enough to keep performing their level best. For some people, getting recognition for their efforts, gives them courage to even strive to reach greater heights. Students should be paid for having good grades because recognition is very important as it is proven to make a sustained difference to one’s self-esteem.
It has instilled discipline, respect, and honesty in today 's, yesterday 's, and tomorrow 's youth. From my personal experience I have felt welcome and felt encouraged to be a better person than I ever thought possible. As have the past, present, and future cadets. The goals are the most simple yet the most complex in any one of my classes! The program has made me, along with countless others, very proud to be in it.
The Urban Honors College, in my family, has always been seen as an advantageous program to be a part of. Urban Honors is a rigorous program, but it provides many great opportunities too. It separates a groups of students, who all have a similar drive for excellence, from the rest of the student body and allows them to flourish. For this very reason I want to join this program. I want the challenge of a more difficult workload, while attending PSU and I feel the Urban Honors College is my best choice.
I am truly grateful for my experiences at Rutgers. Not only have I been able to meet and build close relationships with a variety of people from different backgrounds, but I also met people from my own background which I don’t often do. I think what amazes me the most is how much I can relate to my friends who are of a different background than me. It is great feeling being able to relate to one another through personal experiences despite the difference in how we were raised up and our practices at home. However, what I appreciate the most is those very differences in our cultures because it great opportunity for me and a friend to learn from one another.
I’ve always been in Honors classes and get good grades, currently I have a GPA of 3.4 but am striving to better myself and get a 4.0. I try to always have a positive outlook on situations and prepare myself for challenging ones. I have great teamwork skills and I work great with different types of people even disabled/special needs. The philosophy of Capital One is “Hire great people and give them the opportunity to be great.” Meaning give one a chance to see how good they can be. I don’t want just a job at Capital One I want a career with Capital One.
