On the bus ride home, I thought about my first day of high school. I was still astounded by the fact that I could finally call myself a 9th grader. I thought about all of the potential things that I would accomplish in the next year. I thought about how different I would be at the end of my high school career. From my first day experience, I was excited for what this new school would bring to
In a family where no one has surpassed the first two years of college, I feel a spotlight is on me to not only finish, but also finish strong. I know how proud my family will be of my accomplishment and how rewarding it will be for me trying to obtain a decent job in the
I was very excited to finally see I was one step closer to going into adult hood. Unfortunately, my Aunt passed away during my junior year which put my family in a financial bind trying to pay for her funeral because she didn’t have any life insurance. We didn’t except an unfortunate event to happen but I knew I had to sty strong and stay true to my dream. While she
What my freshman-sophomore self refused to do was essential to my own downfall: without finding myself in friends, family, and serving others I would not be the happier person I am now. Recovery from a change in routine was not the easiest, but it was very possible. When my father was taken away from my family due to unfortunate circumstances, I was also given me the opportunity to mature earlier than others. The tragedy that afflicted my family and childhood could have been prevented, but the experiences and knowledge I gained was necessary for me to become adaptable, independent, and realizing the importance of having loving friends and
Colleges create some situations which could help you in your new job or in your life. I have a feeling that we are cached up in circle Money-Grades-Knowledge-Education –Money. All this things are important in our material world. We need to know something about it. Good way to teach us is to get higher education which helps in a future I believe.
So life had to drastically transition from me being a lax sophomore that depended on my parents to plan everything for me and keep me in check for school work to living on my own and not having that sturdy support. At this school when I was learning to become an independent individual I had many opportunities to work on my time management and scheduling, and I had to learn how to get over my emotions on my own as a teenager with no parent or sibling to express these feeling to. Also through this whole school experience I had to have relationships with my teachers independently be able to figure out compromises and create bonds with them, without the help of parents and keeping a handle on my
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.
Just the thought of not knowing what I was supposed to do with the rest of my life made the last little bit of my senior year, very stressful. I then found out that not knowing and being undecided was perfectly okay and I was ready to begin my freshman year at Saint Petersburg College. Talking about graduating high school always seemed unrealistic because it was such a huge goal. After graduation, I had never felt so proud of myself.
As I became older, the lenses in which I viewed the world became more open to the challenges that I would face as I strived to achieve my goals. Furthermore, I came to understand that hard work, dedication and having a desire to succeed in life was required to reach my fullest potential. As a look back at my upbringing I reflect on the decisions that I made, the obstacles I overcame, and the successes
On February 21, 2018, I had the opportunity to job shadow Ms. Drohn, the assistant professor in the school of nursing. The main reason why I choose to shadow Ms. Drohn was because I have been told by others that I will make a great teacher someday. I figured how bad could it be to experience what it is like to be a teacher. After all, my other main goal is to be a pediatric nurse so this worked out perfect because I get to experience what it is like to teach nursing students. Apart from that, I also what to shadow Ms. Drohn because I wanted to get insight into the different nursing fields available to nursing students at Liberty University. In addition, I wanted to grow my network with the professor at the school of nursing.
College is full of experience and to get that experience students need to get involved in campus and use all the resources that their campus offer. For my first semester at university I learned lots of information that helped me go through my first semester and I will keep using this resources until I graduate. and these resources are not just for school but also for my personal life. The first thing I have learned in college is how to manage my time and it's important to know that skill so that I would not waste time doing nothing and get schoolwork done and it won’t make me stressful because I have many assignment and project to do. and to always get done with my priority first which is my school work.
As high school went on, the workload grew, but I also grew, so I was perfectly capable of keeping up with the work. This type of growth came rather easy to me. It was important for me to have one thing I could be confident with through all of the drama and chaos in my life. Growing in my community was not challenging thanks to the Live Algoma movement. Our community itself has experienced so much growth over the past four years, which allowed many students, including me, to grow in their community involvement as well.
