Despite of everything, I enrolled in nursing for first semester. I am happy and enjoy nursing a lot that I got high grades. My father is so proud and give his support on my decision but after 1st semester, my father informed me that my aunt will not support me anymore. I feel sad about the news but I cannot
Each day that passes, I get more passionate and excited about my future as a medical student, and eventually a surgeon. Up until my junior year of high school, I didn’t know what type of surgeon I wanted to be. I was assigned a junior project, where I researched schools, and most importantly my career plans. That’s when I decided that a reconstructive plastic surgeon is what I wanted to become. I am a perfectionist and I like to take my time so that I can take pride in my work.
The challenge of positively impacting others’ lives was one of the things that led me into medicine. When I decided to pursue a career in medicine I wasn’t sure which specialty I wanted to dedicate my life to. Throughout my years in medical school several experiences helped guide my decision into choosing oncology as a career. For instance, anatomy and physiology was my favorite class and the one I looked forward to every week. It lend me the opportunity to open a real bodies and explore how disease projects in the body.
I try to be as realistic as possible in most situations, I know college is not going to be easy especially with the major that chose me. But after my visits to Lindenwood I understand all the ways that help is accessible to me. And since my failure in Algebra 2 the year prior I’ve gained new ways to make it fool proof that I remember to do my work. With the help of calendars, alarms on my phone, and writing and recording notes as the professor speaks I feel that I am prepared to succeed at college. With these tools I fully plan on surpassing others in my pursuit of higher education.
The imagines that disgusted my mother was a source of my fascination that sparked my interest to read in order to discover the knowledge I was seeking. Ever since I could remember that story of my birth being told, it was a defining moment for me – one I believe has allowed me to become the person I am today. Even though, others have told me they cannot see me working in healthcare or that I’m too small to be an emergency medical technician. I believe in facing adversity, that all things happen for a reason and every tribulation can allow me to reach my full potential. While in the first month of my emergency medical technician class, I had faced a tribulation that had caused me to question the beliefs that are my foundation.
I was told at a young age that education was the key to success and from that point on I made it my main priority not to be the average student among those that settle for less but to be a outstanding student that rises to every occasion to take advantage of my education. I do not that not let any setbacks or obstacles interfere with my education. I have maintain a 3.7 GPA despite of my after school job during my junior year. My mom told me during my tenth grade year that my junior year was going to either make me or break me. She explained I had to be really on top of my studies and I had no room for small mistakes.
At the age of fourteen, I was accepted into an Early College High School that has allowed me to take dual credit courses since my freshman year of high school. By the time I graduate high school, I will already have my college associate degree that I will have earned through my hard work and dedication. Even though I went through a lot at such a young age, it has shaped me in every possible way. I was exposed to a whole different language and culture, but I was able to succeed through my strong desire of success and dedication. I am thankful for every challenge that I had to go through because if it was not for them, I would not be the person I am
I am sure plenty of you all have felt this, having to wake up early in the morning to trek to school to at 7:00 AM for a seemingly useless class. I felt this way at first. Over time, I learned numerous important lessons from this class and now I am glad that I decided to attend this class. I will share important lessons that I have learned in this class, relating to the various units we have learned this year: social, mental, and emotional health, drugs, nutrition and physical activity, and sexual health. The first unit in our class was about our mental, emotional, and social health.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?” this seems to the continuous question everyone is encountered within their lifetime; and we expect it in every ice breaker. In our elementary years we hear “A doctor!” or “the president of the United States!”; but with further education and experience our dreams alter and so do our careers. I’d have to admit my insight on my future has been consistent; my value was always to pursue a career that helps others. With my enrollment in college, I chose the major of biology because I believe this will prepare me for medical school where I hope to become a Gynecologist. After this career analysis, I gained major insight on my future career including its overview, job responsibilities, work environment, skills, education, salary, and
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.
By the end of my freshman year of high school I knew this was now something I wanted to pursue and took every academic and shadowing opportunity I could to ensure this. Upon graduating high school, I enrolled at the University of Oklahoma with a clear-cut idea of what I wanted to pursue. I declared a major in biology and began my academic career. During this time I was able to continue shadowing, but experienced a slight set back. Like many individuals, it took me some time to adapt to the college lifestyle and my GPA suffered from that.
I took all the sciences I could, eventually majoring in Biochemistry in college to understand the workings of the body. I always thought I wanted to be a pathologist. I was aware of pathology assistants but was unaware of what their job entailed. In my junior year of undergrad, I was fortunate enough to find out that my college worked with a teaching hospital, Montefiore Medical Center. Through them, I was able to obtain an internship in the Surgical
Attending a community college was not always my number one choice for my college life after high school. I had always dreamed of attending a university once I graduated high school. Delta State was always high on my list of schools to attend, especially now that I have matured and experienced the first two years of my college journey. Attending community college was the fiscally responsible move for me after high school graduation. The two years I have spent at Itawamba Community College has given me the experience to take the next step towards my career goals; attending and graduating from a university.
I have always wanted to have a better future because I grew up in a low income family. My plan is to attend a four year university full time at University of Washington Bothell and major in computer science field because I am passionate about working with technology, and I want to understand how we can continue to draw knowledge from it. In addition, I plan to attend graduate school while working in the computer science field after I finished with my undergraduate school. I want to be able to give back to the society for all the resources it provided me to reach this point in my education and continue working toward fulfilling my life goals. The Intro to Computer Science class at Roosevelt is helping me understand what it takes to be a computer science major student.
As I end my sophomore year at Old Dominion University I think about all that I have accomplished in the past two years. I think about traveling to Peru and volunteering at an Hogar and Hospital as a Freshmen, Becoming Co-President of the Women’s ministry for ODU’s Catholic Campus Ministry, and to working hard and receiving good grades in all my classes. Not only do I think about all the work that I have done so far but I also think about my family and all the sacrifices they have made for me. I think about my parents waking up early every day to go to work just so we could have food on the table and a roof over our heads. I think about all they had to sacrifice when they fled from their country just so my siblings and I could grow up with more opportunities, and accomplish any goals we set ourselves without having to worry about whether or not tomorrow would come.
