What have you done at Union that is in keeping with the goals of the Minerva Houses OR, with other schools/groups in which you have participated? One of the Minerva goals is to promote interaction between faculty/staff and students. I helped plan the Biology Club: Biology Student Faculty Jeopardy Mixer which was held at Beuth House last month. This particular event was an opportunity for students to meet many of the Biology teachers at Union.
I will help motivate my peers to take on more community and school service projects. I am not afraid to break out of my comfort zone to benefit those around me. The past two years I have worked to come out of my comfort zone and try new things. This lead me to many clubs and extracurricular activities that I know enjoy.
The first skill that Gls has helped me with is my presentation skills. We had a total of 2 presentations Including this one. The persuasive presentation, and the Gls journey presentation. These presentations have and will help me out during school because many courses require you to present in front of your class.
I expect it to be really challenging and hard. From what I have heard you get a lot of homework and essays. Since my teachers in middle school are really good I don’t think I will have a problem in high school. I also expect high school to be a lot of fun.
Growing up I never felt very stressed in my day to day activities. Life was almost a breeze, as I only had to worry about getting at least 3 hours of playtime outside every day. Soon I got to high school, and started feeling the crushing force of stress from constant procrastination. I never once was proactive in getting my assignments done early, and paid the price is sleepless nights on a weekly basis. Eventually I got introduced into the real world my senior year, and my stress felt like it had doubled.
This interview has made me think harder about what I want in a job and career. Working in Athletic Event Management is an extreme time commitment, most people in these positions are lucky to have one day off a week. If they are lucky enough to have a day off, they are still on call in case there is anything that needs prepared. The benefit of working at a school like Cal Baptist is that there are never any events on Sundays. That is something that is important to me.
During my orientation when I first became a running start student at SSC was when I had first heard about this program along with joining it. The AANAPISI center supports all students success but has a strong focus on students of Asian American and Pacific Islander heritage. Being apart of this program, each and everyone of us strives to help others in any way that we can whether it is academically, or to enlighten others of the asian american, native american, and pacific islander culture. The goal that the AANAPISI program has to guarantee students success makes me proud to be apart of, but as a student who is half Caucasian and half Filipino, I am also able to personally connect to this program as well. I am constantly surrounded by my Filipino culture that I was once out of reach for me, while giving me that sense of
At competitions with team events, I organize my team’s approach to the problems, delegating tasks to various members and motivating them to complete their assigned task, all while working on my own problems. In addition, I participate on Chicago’s selective All-Star Regional Math Team. My involvement in scholastic bowl includes my position as my team’s captain. I take responsibility for the team as a whole and lead the team at all
While many college students can agree on these conditions being part of what drove them to go to college, most can agree that the real reason we are here is to receive an education. But what does it mean to have an education? Furthermore, what does it mean to be educated? Even further, which concept of thinking threatens us the most from being “educated” an open or closed mind? Frankly, the third question I can answer right away, and that is being too closeminded.
We learned a speech and then presented to younger grades. This shows that I can be trustworthy enough and accountable to learn my speech in the time given. This also shows that I am comfortable talking in front of other people respectfully. I also am involved in a lot of community service projects not just for school, but from outside activities as well. I have been in multiple canned food drives supporting the organization Manna.
During my years at Peoria Notre Dame HS, cheerleading has been a big part of my life, and something I hope to continue at the University of Dayton. I am an outgoing and social person and it’s easy for me to learn routines quickly. As captain for both the JV and varsity squads, I have put together multiple award winning routines, selecting the music, choreographing and teaching the routine to the squad. Besides the actual cheer routines, I have used my communication skills to keep squad members and their parents informed. I try to set a good example with my own behavior, I love helping to create enthusiasm for cheerleading in young kids, and I have learned a lot from mediating issues within the team.
I happened to have an advantage because my mentor was one of the founders of the program and he was able to guide and show me what was required to excel in this curriculum. Once I finished my thesis, I turned my focus to my classmates so that I could help expedite the review process and help with their research. I knew what the program wanted from us and I shared that information with others. Before I knew it, my email was flooded with thesis drafts and questions.
The reason I chose criminal justice as my major in college is, because when I was a kid I always wanted to solve crimes be an Investigator. Which led me into to the criminal justice field of study. I did not pursue a college education in til I was 26 year of age because I felt as if I was not ready for that challenge of a full time job and an full time student. Which resulted in me not going to school till my mid 20. I want to lay the foundation down for my family to grow and to let everyone know that i am the standard and our family that's where my motivation comes from.
