My time at East Wake Academy has been well valued; being there has allowed me to pursue opportunities that I would have never imagined could happen. I have done and accomplished a lot while I was at East Wake Academy. In the first two years of being there I made an impact on majority of my teachers. I was a smart student who normally at the end of the year got the highest average or most improved awards in the class. In my last two years I was invited to observe the Zebulon Chamber of Commerce meetings.
I was inundated with an unexpectedly heavy workload in even the first three weeks and ended up pulling my first all-nighter the day before speech day, beginning to compose my personal statement at around 2AM. I stumbled into the auditorium later that afternoon, bleary-eyed and exhausted, and slurred my way through the speech. Needless to say, I lost tragically, and my dreams of becoming the next Barack Obama were temporarily shattered. However, I didn’t let this first loss slow me down. I continued to press forward, completing my sophomore class president speech weeks ahead of time and even laminating it several days before speech day in an effort to present myself in a professional light.
Luckily, I managed to land a job as a camp counselor, but something was still missing. Finally, I realized that I wanted to go back to school. Going back to school drastically changed my life. My work ethic, free time, and self – esteem have all changed my daily life for the better. When I was in high school I think it is safe to say I was a pretty good student.
Sometimes change could be good, but sometimes it can be bad. Let’s start with my first life changing event. When my parents told me I was moving to Idaho it was legit two days before leaving. I didn’t really have any time to say goodbye to all my friends. I was living in New Mexico so moving from New Mexico to Idaho was a really long trip.
When the wedding day come around her fiance left her at the altar, and he left the country. I keep telling myself, “Sophia this move is a good decision for your heart”. A week later my family and I moved into our new home in the middle of nowhere. When I awoke from my deep sleep, I decided to go outside and explore the landscape. As I was walked to the front door my mother Allison stopped me and asked me where was I heading.
Following my eighth grade year I was detrimmed to put all the years of failure behind me. Freshman year was going to be a new start. That whole summer I went to camps and every clinqne I could. My level of play was progressing and I was feeling more confident going into high school. My freshman year was here and it was time to fight for a starting spot.
I started my first high school life in Albuquerque, we didn 't settled in a normal passe cause the move was so sudden, even after I was starting to settle in with the high school, but we had to move to Colorado due to some family situation, and so we moved to a small and little interesting town of Leadville once known for its mining back in the days of the gold rush in Colorado. That year didn 't really last very long until my family gather enough money to move back to New Mexico to start my sophomore year in a Bloomfield high school; Because of all the moving around making my high school experience harder to grasp until it took me until my Junior year that I get the gist of what to do in high school. As time pass by in high school, I 've gained a lot more experience with people and knowledge of different types of school of how they work and it was all due to the moving around to place to place for a whole year. Even living in New Mexico I had a clearer picture of my origins and how I could use that knowledge of my future. Though learning about my origin didn 't gave a clear picture of what I wanted to become, I thought about it all the time ever since my beginning of high school.
a year ago, I was in high school working towards accomplishing my long-term goal of graduating high school with honors and a maintaining a high GPA. After years of striving for my goals I graduated top of my class, was accepted to the colleges I applied, and I was awarded with a few scholarships that helped me pay for all my college tuition. Going into my freshmen year of college I felt proud that I honor the chance to continue my education because no one in my family had ever attended college. As time was approaching for me to begin my journey as a freshmen, it was time to begin the next goals. The most important long term goal for me was to pass all my classes with an A and I accomplished it by focusing on myself and setting my school priorities
Transcripts In my highschool career the majority of my grades were fairly well, although I started my freshman year confused to what career path I would be taking, by sophomore year though I figured out what career I wanted to pursue. Most of my grades were A’s and B’s and the only bad grade I have ever received was a C in geometry during my freshman year. In junior year I started to take honor classes and managed to keep them solid B’s. I have been an average student throughout my high school years. Many of my teachers have reported how much of a conscientious student I am.
Junior year I was settled down and determined to improve my academics; by the end of first semester of junior year I had raised my GPA by one point. Attendance I’ve had exemplary attendance throughout my four years of attending high school. I’ve always had great attendance because I don’t like to take days off. Part of being an adult is doing stuff you don’t want to do such as going to school to expand your education. I feel that my exemplary attendance has contributed to my improved grades and work ethic.
