Throughout my life, I strived to produce my greatest work possible and continue to do so today. I am in National Honor Society, I take Advanced placement, Honors, Advanced, and dual-enrollment courses at Penn State DuBois. I spent two summers volunteering at the local community theater kid’s summer workshop, and during the year I volunteer to usher, stage manage, and run lights at the theater. I began selling clothes on eBay at thirteen and by fifteen I created an online store through Etsy. I began working at the age of sixteen, and I currently work at T.J. Maxx. For my last year in high school, my friends and I created an “Earn and Learn” business through our school’s DECA club and will be competing at states in February. I am proud of what I have accomplished thus far in my life, and I plan to go even further in the future. My goals and

Moreover, I dreamed about the destinations that I wanted to travel to, the career that I want to pursue after graduating from college. I knew that the life that my parents lived was not for me.
Countless psychological studies show the truth: hope, dreams, and goals are the psychological vehicles driving success. In Of Mice and Men, the dream is to leave the life of work and travel behind and live on a ranch, in War Dance, the goal is to do well at the national music competition, and in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Walter Mitty hopes for a more interesting life in a series of daydreams, to ultimately find that he has been living the true daydream. Hope, dreams, and goals allowed the people portrayed, fictional or not, to strive for more. Hopes, dreams, and goals allow people to increase their motivation, perform better, and seek new concepts.

I define success as reaching your goals. The first part of this is setting your goal. If you aren’t able to set your goals for your life, long or short term, you probably won’t be successful. To me, the most important part of life is achieving these goals. This means working hard enough that you can get anything done. Four people that demonstrate reaching your goals are myself, Vincent Van Gogh, Michael Jordan and my sister.

Successful person who does not give up and achieves his goals with all the insistence and determination. Mostly, objectives fall within the framework of values as stated in the book American Ways by authors Maryanne Kearny Datesman, Joann Crandall, and Edward N. Kearny.

In fact, for each value of these values at a price to be paid: self-reliance, competition, and hard work. In order to individual freedom it has to be self-reliance, and for equality of opportunities
On September 8, 2009 in Arlington, Virginia, President Barack Obama issued a “Back to School” speech. In this speech, he outlined the importance of a student’s education and how it may reflect on their future.

With Morisano’s and Shore’s article on Goal Setting it has taught me a lot about making goals and ways to reach goals. It goes into how to successfully set a goal. In the article there is a quote “We should see potential not as potential for being good at the handful of skills and acquisitions that can be developed at or gotten from school, but as the potential for realizing the possibilities of the spirit, the potential, more specifically, for selecting from and integrating school learning and other learning into a meaningful, worthy, passionate, and satisfying life path” (Grant, 1995) (Goal
If you don’t wake up every morning wanting to be the best, then you should just stay in bed. Becoming a successful person is formed by hard work and the people I love have shaped the future for me. Since my family has taught me that change can be certain and radical in adjusting lives, I would like to hold that capacity sometime in the future. I look for the ability to enhance my life and additionally the lives of everyone around me. Being the first person in my family to attend college has the lit the fire inside of me. This has been a dream of my family and mine. Going to a University has strengthened me to work as hard I can. Although my parents have become successful, they had to struggle
In the future, I would like to complete many individual goals. For instance, one personal goal I have that I would like to accomplish is making over 50% of my free throws during basketball games this season. Whenever I shoot free throws during games I usually miss. As a post player, I get fouled a often which gives me more opportunities to shoot. I would like to take my time and focus on the fundamentals of shooting when I am at the line. Hopefully after working hard during practices I will accomplish my personal goal. Another goal I have is academic based. I would like to maintain straight A’s at the end of every quarter. Some ways I plan on achieving this are studying for every test and quiz, being sure to not have or complete all missing
What is acting? Acting is where one person takes in the role, behavior, attitudes, and other traits of another person or character in a script for either a film or play. With an acting major you will spend a lot of time working on your body and the way you move on stage. In most acting majors you will have six main classes that you must take to graduate. You will have to have a class for acting, voice for actors, movement, improvisation, theatre history, and maybe an actor coaching class depending on what college you go to. Depending on the college or University you attend, these may be the same or they may be different. (The College Board)
Who am I, where am I going, and how do I plan to get there? That is a really good question. To begin with, I am the only child of Martha Ramirez and Rosario Ramirez. I come from a family where not a lot have finished school, but are grateful for what they do have. Throughout my life I have learned to be grateful for everything that I have, to be someone in life, and to follow your heart no matter the situation.
“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are merely players,” (Shakespeare), meaning the whole world is like a stage show and humans are the actors. The quote proves that life can imitate art even when it’s not recognized, art is everywhere you look, in places you never thought to look. Theater is represented in any imaginable way, so why is it not good enough for a simple required subject in school? Fine arts such as drama, dance, and art programs get cut from high schools due to the expenses that go into them. People say theater is not needed for the future, no help in the “real world”, and it’s not a life skill. However, theater is much more than an elective or an “easy A”, theater is something that will stick with you for the rest of your
