What The Pledge of Allegiance Means to Me The Pledge of Allegiance means a lot to me. One thing the Pledge means to me is that we are all one nation.

My grandfather was an accomplished lawyer, my grandmother acquired Masters and a Doctorate Degree in Education at Stanford. My dad is a successful CFO and General Manager. I don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know one thing is certain; I want to have the best education I can achieve. I realize that it is not all about being book smart. I need to have the Catholic teachings my parents and the school I go to instill in me every day so that I can have the guidance I need that will help me make the right decision when the time comes.
As a candidate for membership in the National Honor Society, I believe that I possess the qualities needed to be inducted. I am interested in joining the organization because I am confident in my leadership qualities and want to help the community. I have achieved the Honor Roll every quarter since it was available in Elementary. In 6th grade, I earned the Westchester County Clerk’s Distinguished Student Award from Timothy C.

Heinritz. Winning the state title is what every high school athlete dreams of doing and the Appleton East boys baseball team made that happen, truly being apart of something amazing. Reed goes on to say that even though winning state is something great and being inducted into the Appleton East hall of fame for it is very special, it was more about the relationships he made with his teammates. “I think it was more along the lines of the group of guys that was great. The amount of them that went onto play college ball was incredible.” said reed?
I can still recall when I went to see my lawyer and he told me that all my paperwork and everything was perfect and I would get my DREAMS ID in the mail and I would also get my SS in the mail I couldn't wait to get it and be able to work. I'm just so glad that for the moment I can still be able to further my education and have a job to help my parents with their financial income and be a role model to my younger sister and show her that when you work hard everything pays off and you should be grateful for everything that happens in your life. Because if it wouldn't be for this DREAM Act I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be in enrolled in school because the college wouldn't accept me for not having a social or even a job how would I be able to pay for my tuition or my book over all the DREAM Act has changed my life completely for the better with many opportunities that who wouldn't want to have. Most minor allies are able to qualify for the DREAM Act benefit so I'm completely sure that this has changed so many teens life in so many ways. Just like it made my life more meaningful and to better
My mom stated “at least we don 't have to deal with the snow”. Truly the Arizona weather is like paradise and back in West Virginia we would always have to shovel snow. To continue, when we arrived to our new home I was mesmerized by the scenery of the home. After a long month of driving and traveling throughout the country we finally met our destination our new
Thank you for your generous award to me from the Paul W Priebe Schorlaship. Your support helps me to pursue my education, to meet the achievement of a lifelong dream. As an immigrant, I cherish the opportunity that living in America offers to me. I had a bachelor of Economics in my home country, but when my family moved to U.S from Vietnam two years ago, I realized that I like accounting and have good opportunities in this field, I decided to go back UNK to earn the bachelor of Business Administration, Accounting Emphasis. Going to UNK has been a very worthwhile experience.
Respect Leads to Success Everyone knows that respect is an important character trait to strive after, and that it is incredibly helpful in life. The movie, The Paper Chase, a 1973 movie directed by James Bridges, demonstrated this in many ways. The protagonist, James Hart, was a student at Harvard Law and sought to earn the respect of Professor Kingsfield, a teacher of one of his classes. Hart and a few other classmates created a study group in order to support one another and pass all their classes. Both respect and success played a large role in the entire film, as did the connection between the two.
The impact was positive because it opened up many opportunities for me. In America, there are resources and financial support available to those who qualify to help fulfill this generation 's dream. After I graduate from college, I will have the opportunity to have a career. I believe higher education is important because the skills I am taught daily helps me to understand the future and how to pursue my dreams. I have always wanted to have a better future because I grew up in a low income family.
I was speechless with great happiness, and I jumped for joy; at the age of nine I was amazed to know that my dream had come into existence. So yes, God does work in mysterious ways, that no one can explain. The next day came, and I had to travel to the capital state of my country to obtain my passport and documents which I would need to travel. Weeks and days went by and my excitement lessened as I began to realize how much I would miss home, members of my family, most especially my lovely grandma because of the bond we shared. I knew I would miss them deeply, so I began to cherish the days I had left to spend with them before my trip.
I often find myself unable to disregard this force of moral and social responsibility in whatever I do. Part of my keen social conscience is demonstrated in the effort I have made to be a positive intellectual leader among my classmates and in the community. Realizing how lucky I am to have been born with a high aptitude for learning, I feel sorry that others who also work very hard cannot achieve like I have nor be rewarded with success as I have been. In a leadership role, I hope to constructively guide my peers to find their own success and see the fruition of their own goals. By serving as class president for three consecutive years, as founder, member, and chairman of the peer counseling society, and as a peer tutor, I have enabled others to reach their goals, while finding personal gratification at the same time.
After Jeter’s retirement, he announced he was going to launch a website called “The Players’ Tribune.”This site would be used as a place for fans to interact with their sports heroes.

I wanted my parents and younger siblings to be proud of me. I went to school because my family would be proud of me. I was the first in my family to graduate from college. I saw this achievement as a collective goal because I hoped it will have a ripple effect in my family’s education. It has my 11 year old brother is constantly encouraging me to go back to school and obtain a Master’s Degree.
I was given every opportunity to thrive academically and, I was ready to embrace each one of them with great joy and pleasure. During three years of studying in LACC my goal was to obtain an AA degree then transfer to the University of Northridge or Cal State LA. I am majoring in Accounting and have a GPA of 3.91. I keep myself occupied by studying and working at LACC at the same time. The experience that I am obtaining working at an academic field is simply amazing because I interact with people of various education levels and work experiences.
I want to be the reason that my mom believes fully in the American dream again. I know I can be that reason- and alough I know that she will always be proud of me, I also know that I have potential that I will never willingly waste, potential that the Benjamin F. Ward Fund could help me grow. I have too much to fight for and I can 't give up knowing that there are millions of people still in the situation that changed my life
