According to the website collegeresults.org, only 24% of the students attending Old Dominion University are graduating within four years' time.

Adjusting my time is obviously one of the most important skills I need to know to be able to thrive in college. Some of the adjustments I utilize while working through UAEC 200 are balancing my schedule, not overwhelming myself, and focusing more on the quality of my work instead of the number of assignments I can complete.

I hope to bring my leadership as way to convey a strong presence in the classroom while also being able to take a step back and allow others to have a leadership role. I happen to be a very driven individual and since this is a very rigorous program I want to use that attribute when dealing with different challenges that might occur and overcome them.

During life span, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, and late adulthood, we find difficult events in life that prevent us to achieve our goals.
A Middlebury Institute degree in translation would assist me in helping others learn English, promote cross-cultural exchange, foster stronger U.S.-Japan ties, and learn more about Japanese culture. I believe that my experience teaching English in Fiji and being an ALT on the Japan Exchange and Teaching (JET) Program coupled with my educational background in Japanese language and culture will help me achieve these goals. In 2016, I became a participant of the JET Program as an assistant language teacher (ALT) after applying for the third time.
