With the resources that would be provided to me by being a Schulich leader, I would be able to help others to the maximum of my abilities. I am hard working and take joy in helping others. This allows me to inspire people to also help others. My Academic Track Records, my financial need, and my extensive community involvement all make me a great Schulich Leader.
Many say high school life is one of the most difficult times of a student’s journey, but mine was both challenging and exciting to cherish. I had stepped on my first day of eighth-grade class feeling the butterflies warm up my little self. I could still vividly remember how terrified I was of failing and disappointing myself. But as I come across this path I took, I had faced many ardent obstacles that had positively pushed me out of my comfort zone. Nothing could beat out the moments when I unraveled new horizons in learning academically and growing personally.
I have high expectations for my life, and plan on making a name out of myself, which requires my financial knowledge to be greater than many. My parents have been a crucial aspect in my life because even though they struggled in the beginning, they turned their mountain of debt and turned it into a beautiful life lesson, and they have taught me a great deal. Budgeting, managing money, and not relying on plastic is, in my opinion, key components in a financially stable environment. Difficulties tend to arise more often than we’d like, but knowing how to deal with this responsibility is a crutial. In 2000, my family received the opportunity to move to Scott County and where my dad would begin his career as a Feed Yard manager at Royal Beef, Inc.. At the time, my parents’ were near the poverty line and ended up resorting to a credit card because they didn’t have the cash at the time or enough money in the bank.
Yes, college is suppose to be fun but also for starting a future. College is worth the cost in my opinion because people can use education to grow and further themselves in day to day life, get the best education possible, and get higher paying occupations. First of all, a college education can be used in many different ways. In “Executive Summary” “Is College Worth It?” researchers from Pew Research Center state that “74% say
Having battled with diagnosed anxiety for three years, rising stress levels can prove to be a challenge upon my mental health. My job is also on hours that take up my whole weekend, so I find myself worrying that I will not find time for many clubs and societies when I join the Robert Gordon University in September. If I was given this scholarship, I would one hundred percent look into a job with less hours in order to focus mainly upon my academic studies. I greatly appreciate the opportunity that ACCESS RGU have given me by allowing me to apply for a scholarship. I wish to let you know that this scholarship would make a great impact on allowing me to focus on my education and continue in school which would be greatly appreciated.
I have never been a perfect student. I have had many shortcomings and struggles throughout my middle school years. Regardless of that, I’ve always tried to be the best student I could be. The thing that got me into trying even harder to maintain my grades was not my parents, but the stress that I had piled onto myself. Yes, my parents wanted me to achieve excellent grades, but it was mostly me who put the pressure on myself.
I also did horrible in the tests, but I was able to push through that and I managed to pass the class with a B. My weakness this year was probably not having enough sleep. I get cranky when I don’t get enough sleep, and I realized I can’t focus when I’m in class. My strength this year was probably becoming more organized and setting a specific schedule for myself everyday. Since I have to work, I need to make specific time for my homework.
I am also worried about finals week and just college tests in general, I know that the classes will be harder than they were in high school and I was never the best at taking tests and I get really bad anxiety when taking tests so that does really worry me. I was never really good at taking notes so I have had to learn to become a good note taker, so far it has been good. Studying for my college exams also worries me because I was never that good at studying and I am a
School can be excruciatingly stressful at times, especially for a perfectionist which I happen to be. With this perfectionism, I 've had a fair share of continuous stress, and frequent headaches. I 've strived to be perfect for as long as I can remember, yet it took until the third trimester of last school year for me to finally realize that perfectionism isn 't actually what it is made out to be. While this perfect mindset may be looked upon as good, it is not. It 's a cruel beast staring over my shoulder and many others as well.
College has changed my home life greatly. The biggest stressors I have faced since coming to college are hand in hand with those in my general life. I am not stressed by loneliness, homesickness, or studying. I am stressed about the way my school work will translate into grades, and grades into scholarships, and scholarships into money, and money into being able to afford to live. These major stressors are very difficult to cope
If I become accepted into the program, I do not intend on quitting. I will be fully committed to taking whatever Honors courses I am required to take. When in Honors classes, I will be willing to accept any task offered to me. I am committed to learning about a wide variety of topics and developing new skills to better my future. I am very passionate about receiving a good education, and I know that being in UNA’s Honors Program is the right thing for me.
Juggling school, extracurricular activities, and giving to others is an exceptionally difficult task. It is a delicate balance that we always are struggling with, but Jesus teaches us that if we put others’ needs before our own, He will put our needs first in Heaven. My goal for the final year of NJHS membership is to view the service I do as something that I want to accomplish, not only as something that is required. It has always been hard for me to strive to work toward something that has no payoff, but seeing the service through the eyes of the one being served can show you how much the payoff really is. The appreciation you receive makes it all the work worth the time and trouble.
This could potentially help the community make most of their money by taking opportunities Blue Ridge Community College has to offer. Therefore, we must approve this plan to help enrich people to a brighter future. To my knowledge, there are no ethical implications that could prevent this
Alonzo I think everyone who took this class was stressed out. Even if a student used their time wisely, the workload could take a toll on their health. Not only are students vulnerable to anxiety and depression by the time they graduate, but also hopelessness as well (Leibow, 2010). I noticed that by spending time with positive people, for example, it has provided me with the mental support that is needed to be successful in college.
