My Greatest Accomplishment A truly great accomplishment is something that lasts and requires determination and extensive effort. For me, making the Texas Small School All-State Mixed Choir was my biggest accomplishment because it opened me up to new passions, taught me how to work hard, and set me on the path I am on today. In my sophomore year, I joined choir simply to get my fine arts credit out of the way. At the time I did not have any plans for college and was uncertain on what I wanted to do with my life after high school. I honestly hated school and just wanted to get it over with.
The waited day came, yes it’s my first day in my new school. When I was taking my first step in my class, I heard a voice saying in sarcastic way “you’re in the wrong class the primary section is in the first floor”, that comment broke my heart but I went over it by thinking positively. However, the day was running too fast until our last period which was PE (Physical Education). Guess what the teacher asked us in the period!! She asked us to join the sports club in our school and each student should choose her/his favorite sport club to join.
Ever since I can remember, I have always wanted to be successful in life. I have always wanted to be the better version of my parents and achieve many things in life. During my freshman year in High school, I knew I was going to major in business. I come from a household of five, my father, mother, two younger sisters, and myself. I am the first in my family to go to college and with that being said, I have always felt the pressure to be the best role model and example for my younger sisters.
I see life as a win or lose situation, and I can be furious all the time and have no fun, or, be elated all the time and live life with joy and without any regrets. Although I am only 17 years old my life had been rough at times. I’d gotten 5 injuries within a four-year period. Entering the most stressful years of school I started with an
Why should I be friends with people who don’t even care to check in on me? That question lingered in my mind that whole week and weekend, when I finally realized that there are changes that come with high school and this was going to be one of them. They didn’t talk to me or try to figure out what was wrong, they moved on with their lives like I had never even been a part of them. I couldn’t sit around and waste away the rest of my year, hoping they would care about me again, so I had to move on too. All the exciting ideas and plans we had made, I would experience with new people.
I made it through the first week just fine, but it was the weekend that was a disaster. The accident that would happen to me this weekend would bring my happy, carefree, 9-year-old life to an overwhelmingly abrupt stop. That weekend, my mom was having a jewelry party, so, of course, the children were sent outside to play while the
Any time, Gladys met the author of Career Dynamics in the 21st Century; she could always pinpoint the challenges experienced in securing a job for her son. Why don’t you acquire a Career Dynamics in the 21st Century for your son? That was the constant reaction. After some months of soul searching, Gladys got convinced and acquired the book for her son. Upon reading and internalizing the contents, Kennedy transformed somehow, and was able to secure himself a marketing job without the mother’s assistance.
Its fourth quarter and I’m doing good until the whole school wants to fight me and still to this day I don’t know why. I would still go to school and ignore them but over spring break they all were attacking me over the internet and I’m not a fighter so I was trying to ignore them. When I went to school I knew they were going to jump me, I had to fight the first girl I saw and
People that look at the bright side and move on are happier than those who are always looking at the bad side of all situations. I believe that happiness is a choice and that everyone has control over their own. August 20, 2015 was a day that changed my life forever. That was the day I learned that my dad had passed away. I was 15 years old and was just entering my sophomore year of highschool.
Life changing events almost always mark the beginning of a new era in someone’s life. I knew a new era had begun for me when a documentary made by me and two friends was nominated for a Student Emmy. As a rising freshman, I was clueless as to what my focus area would be. I randomly selected broadcasting even though I did had no idea what I would be doing. During the first half of freshman year, I drifted through the class because it was mostly quizzes on camera equipment and cables.
