Throughout my high school career, there is only one major thing that has affected my entire life, including my educational performance and that is marching band. The marching band at my high school is one of the most well respected programs in my district. In eighth grade, I decided to audition for color guard. And when I made the team, I became apart of the marching band. That year, my entire life changed. In order to participate in the marching band, your grades have to be good and you can’t get in trouble. When I joined marching band, I strived to be better than what I was. I picked my grades up and I didn’t get into trouble. That was five years ago now, I am color guard captain now and I couldn’t imagine my life without color guard. Being
My history as a writer has been a bit of a struggle of slow development. From a young age I had a hard time with spelling and this is still a trouble area for me, even with the help of autocorrect. As I grew in age and as a writer my problematic area became not including enough nitty gritty details. My bad experiences that I recall would always involve the start of writing because I struggle with beginning paragraphs. Also, I tend to use the ending paragraph to just repeat myself, so overall my first and last paragraphs are usually shit. I find that I usually have more success when writing about something that I truly enjoy and struggle when talking about something I do not really care about. Both my parents were minimal to no help with writing
As a unique individual, certain activities are done to fit your needs. According to the parenting style, parents would have an impact on the children 's life.

I am a leader, a whole hearted person that believes in the greater good, a selfless individual, an intellectual young adult, and a brave character, and it is on account of these qualities that I feel Montclair State University is the school for me. Being that I am an individual that has matured intellectually, emotionally, and now has the motivation needed to seek a positive trajectory and path in life, and I believe this school could only help further my growth as a person and strengthen my academic abilities. Writing has always been one of my strong suits and it is the best method I’ve learned as a way to express myself. Growing up, I had a rough childhood, and it was through reading and writing that I learned to better my perspective towards life.
Growing up in Capital Heights, Maryland was never easy. At the time the crime in that City was to me, at its peak, there were shootings, robbing’s, and bad influences around every corner. Every day I got up early and walked out my little house sitting firmly on the hill, down the street to John Edgar Howard Elementary, the school I attended at the time. Yes, the neighborhood was rough, but I was fortunate enough to have a strong support system. My Grandmother made sure to wake me up every morning to haul me of to school where I would meet my loving, devoted teachers and coaches. With their help I left John Edgar Howard elementary school with a strong head on my shoulders, and the devotion to strive for more.
To start off, there are countless reasons as to why I should attend Villa Maria Academy. From the fantastic athletics, the reassuring fact (to dad) that there are no boys, the education, and lastly the security of a stable school. I feel Villa Maria Academy would offer me a lot that other schools can’t. All I hear are the unending raves as to how Villa can prepare you for college and real life situations. Villa will create unending, vast opportunities for me as a student and a person.
When I started high school, the club that excited me the most, was National Honors Society. So, at the first chance I got, in my sophomore year. After being a member for a year, I quickly realized that I wanted to take on a leadership opportunity in the club. So, I took a shot for the stars, and campaigned for being president of Honors Society. Though I had some competition, I put my all into composing a speech, and I won the presidency, and I have been president since. Through Honors Society, I have gotten to take on many leadership roles, including preparing and leading meetings, and developing our monthly schoolwide outreach to the school.
Since the day I started at NBHS and got to witness the strength, responsibility, and the impressions able to be made by a senior with a title in the band, I knew I wanted to audition for one my junior year. I will never forget my original seniors. They were like gods to me. They knew everything about the band, they made it so the band would function at its fullest potential, and they brought guidance and structure to all those who were under them. There are many layers to band leader positions. At the top is the Drum Major, under them are their drill sergeants, and under them are the head section leaders and the normal section leaders. I origanlly would have been content as a section leader. I would have been in control of the drumline and
I can 't remember when I began writing as a hobby, but I 've done it long enough for it to feel like a part of me. Everyday, whenever I have time or am in the mood, I try to write something before I go to bed. Whatever that had been scratching at my brain, or something that I want to experiment, I write down before the thought becomes meaningless.
Majoring in music has been my dream since my freshman year of high school. Near the end of my junior year, I discovered that I wanted to be a choir director. Being in theatre has helped me figure out my calling in life, and I wouldn’t trade the past ten years of my life that I’ve spent at the theatre.
Going to a ‘good high school’ is really an important goal to set up a successful life. The people and education can help form what kind of person you will be as an adult, how you change your world for the better, whether on personal or global level. But what a good school is can mean many different things depending on what goals are set ahead for the high school years and beyond. I want to be accepted into a private high school, be involved and happy with the community, be pushed to achieve to my limits academically, and enjoy my time learning and experiencing the communities and people around me. My individual talents, interests, and ideas are parts of myself that I want to nurture and share with others.
On the day I have my orchestra fall festival concert that I was running late. At first my dress ripped in the back and my mom had to fix it. Second my mom took forever to get dressed then my family arrived late to my house because they wanted to leave as an group.I tried my best to handle the situation as best as I can, but then my dad got lost in the expressway it took us an hour to find the correct way.
Ballet dancers display lower coping and cognitive skills and higher catastrophizing responses than other athletes (Anderson & Hanrahan, 2008). Ballet is physically and emotionally, an exhausting endeavor. To think that all of one’s hard work and dedication towards the art form could be abruptly snatched away with one injury is devastating. One twist of an ankle could be the end to a dancer’s career. One persisting source of pain could take away the one thing in life that brings you the most joy. Once, in a conference with my ballet school’s principal and associate director, I was told that my back injury could halt my pursuit of a dance career. I immediately started bawling—it was the worst thing I could have ever been informed of. Learning
Doing further research on a career in the film industry made me realize the job will be difficult. Hard or not I still plan to pursue this career. I previously set three short term goals to help me be successful in following this career path. To further aid me I have come up with 3 long term goals. All six of these goals will benefit me tremendously whether I change my path or not.
