I had always wondered how it must feel to have friends that care so much, they would drop everything just to come and help you. However, after months of searching my three best friends showed me what true friendship was. One of the most important male figures in my life taught me that what is yours will find you and that life gets a lot more beautiful when you start living for yourself. This really helped to shape me into the person that I am today because I no longer seek approval from anyone but myself. That piece of advice is what made the last two years of my high school career nothing short of
I think that this activity gave me the extra push I needed because over Thanksgiving break I spoke up to one of my family members for the first time ever when they said something negative about Black people. I know that I still have an incredible amount of progress to make, and that it is something that I should have been doing all along, but I am still glad that I finally made a step in the right direction. In addition to continuing to speak up against people who are participating in racism in my presence I also need to continue to be aware of current events in the future. Every once in a while we would have a discussion in class about what’s been going on in the media, and almost half of the time I was not aware of what was going on until somebody brought it up in class. I cannot expect to be a good ally if I do not stay educated about what is going on in our country and around the world with respect to minorities.
As a member of a team, I had to fully commit myself, because my actions did not only have an effect on myself but my teammates as well. Giving 110% was something my parents had taught me to always do. I learned the importance of responsibility. I told my mom my junior year of high school that I wanted to play lacrosse in college. She had told me if I really wanted to play in college that I would have to work hard, practice more and focus on my grades.
I am not sure I will live up to his wit, but there are a few things I would like to say about Uncle Donny. Anyone who knew Donnie knows that he had a very strong work ethic. His children tell me that if they told their dad they were not feeling well and might stay home from work, he would respond by saying, “It is just as easy to be sick at work as at home, so go to work.” He was just calling them to live like he did. He never missed work. He was also known to say, “if you love your job you will never work a day in
But I do it because I don’t want to see you get hurt. Do you understand?”(137.86) Every parent has moments where at times they lose their anger. But While his father says that Christopher only says “ I don’t know”. His father clothes him, feeds him and provides shelter for him and that was all Christopher could come up with. There were countless times the father told Christopher how much he loved him.
My father always cherished and motivated me to achieve good grades that could help me in life. The shyness and held in emotions prevented me from wanting to associate with anyone else. On the bright side, this was just the beginning of the life-changing experiences that were yet to come. In the Odyssey, Odysseus had to encounter a million obstacles and hardships leading to his return home to Ithaca, but in the end he returned home. My journey started freshman year, when I went to Perrysburg High School.
Until he had to retire because of his M.S. His impact on my life is never stop working hard, enjoy life to the fullest. Soon after having two young boys, Tim Huyge was diagnosed with a foreign sounding disease called M.S, which is affected by heat and stress. Within the months they had been trying to find out what he had, my dad learned that it could affect his movement, cognitive thinking, his attitude, and his memory. Even though he knew all of that he
But did I push myself 110% everyday no! There 's no question there, some days are just harder to get through, same thing goes for a month. So no I didn 't push myself 110% everyday.” I 've always known Carver to push himself hard as a teacher so again I wasn 't expecting him to say no. In conclusion I feel like the message that Carver was trying to see acrossed was to not get married and then go to college. Because all it 's really going to do is hold you back from what you need to get accomplished and marriage can wait until you finish college or really any
When hearing that my brother had been declined in 8th grade, I instantly knew that it was not an easy feat to accomplish. The only thing that I wanted was to beat my brother into entering NJHS. When being given the letter of nomination I was excited and satisfied. Excited because this was the chance for me to get into NJHS and be able to beat my brother. I was satisfied because I knew that my hard work in school had finally paid.

I know that this program will be a very useful help in being college ready when I start in the fall and not being sure in what I have to and don’t have to do. Describe a personal challenge or adversity you’ve experienced and how you were able to overcome that obstacle (provide specific steps that were necessary) A personal challenge that I have experienced had to do with my whole family. My parents and my brother came to the United States to search for a better lifestyle like a lot of immigrants do. Along the way my mom had me, my twin sister, and my little sister and they decided to become US residents. They started to go to the process when I was in middle school and we were all hopeful that they would be get them.
I’ve never been more comfortable or happy with anyone and he treats me the way I should be treated. Without that unhealthy relationship I was in, I don’t know if I’d ever ended up falling in love with my best friend. Even though I went through a lot that year, looking back now I’m glad it happened. It shook me up a lot and I wasn’t in a good place mentally and emotionally, but I learned who I was as a person, and that I deserved someone who would treat me better than how I was being treated. Bad things don’t just happen for no reason.
