The challenges I have faced influenced my academic performance and guided me into pursuing my college education. My junior year was a struggle for me. I decided to challenge myself like I have never been challenged before. I took on an honors class that I clearly wasn 't ready for, but I stuck with it and was determined to finish.
At first, there were many flaws in my technique and patterns that I did not quite master, but with practice they improved drastically. Throughout this past season, I have seen great improvement in myself, in regards to my technique and as well as the proficiency of
Of course, I was a student that hoped to attend an accredited university, but in order to, I knew I had to get outstanding grades. I was a hard worker throughout high school, and tried my best every year. I was really motivated to take AP courses as a freshman, unfortunately my school only provided honors, but I found out later that it acted as a substitute, and was accepted just the same. I took advantage of anything they had handed to me. My priorities at this moment are maintaining an outstanding GPA all through high school, and promoting quality leadership in everything I do.
I lost both of the debates I was in during that class, so would say my public speaking could use some improvement in these years of college ahead of me. Not only does it need improvement, I personly would like to see it improve. Over the last year, I have decided I want to take a role that involves a lot of leadership and the qualities that go with leadership. One of the biggest parts of leadership in my eyes is public speaking and the ability to convey my thoughts well in front of people. So I would certainly say I am excited by the prospect of public
Being a Successful College Student Because College is important, I will be a successful student by overcoming my challenges, by listening to advice from the experts, and developing effective strategies. I have challenges I need to overcome in order to be a successful student in college. One of my issues I face on a daily bases is that I have learning disabilities and mental disorders. I always thought that I was completely normal until one day I went to a physiatrist who thought otherwise. From that day forward, I was on different type of ADHD stimulants such as Concerta and Ritilan to try to control my outbursts and behavior in class.
I did very well with time I had to learn left. Unfortunately this experienced I gained was towards the end of my orientation and once my 90 days was up The Cleveland Clinic decided to release me. Since then I have pursued to get certified and have done just that. I 'm very capable of anything I put my mind to. I 'm proud of how far I have come and now being a CST, I want an opportunity to continue from what I have learned so far and become the best surgical tech that I can be.
I have already gotten to do that a lot through volunteering with National Honor Society. That organization showed me why it is crucial to help your community and also created a love of volunteerism within me. We can always do more though. Throughout my high school years I had the chance of doing a lot of work for my community and now I will get the chance to impact a new one. Since I will be leaving Jacksonville to go to college in Fayetteville, the only thing I can do for my old city is encourage its citizens to continue to better the city.
Although it was the most work I had done throughout my years of high school, the complexity of the class only challenged me to work harder and to read in between the lines. My intentions for next year are to work twice as hard and improve my reading, critical thinking, oral, and analytical skills in English 1102.
Unfortunately, College Writing One is far more complicated than high school. I will continue to grow while learning many methods to improve my writing skills. Trying to improve your paper by not using the same words over and over again is more difficult than most people think. Another struggle is trying to find an advanced word selection to replace those words we tend to use often. Since we have been kids we have words we like more than others.
There have been many moments in my life as a Belmont University student that have inspired me to both engage and transform the world the around me. However, there is always one moment that sticks out the most for me though. When I was a junior, I finally got around to taking my linked courses because I was a transfer student and things involving my schedule got weird after a certain point and never really resolved. But, onto the main topic, these linked courses were a required part of the Belmont University undergraduate experience and they involved taking two courses during the same semester that had different emphases but one overall theme that connected them throughout the semester. In my case, the linked courses were Chemistry and Communications with the main overall theme of engaging the environment around us,
My respectable future is slowing sneaking up on me and I have to be prepared. I have strived for satisfactory grades and an abundant of community service hours to do so. The career path that I have chosen for myself is Forensic Anthropology, which has always fascinated me. This career is obviously not easy to achieve, but I believe with the right determination and work/study ethic, I can potentially flourish in my future education. I plan to attend community college for two years, and then move on to a 4 year university to work on my degree.
I will use not only this degree, but the knowledge that I have obtained from pursuing it, throughout the rest of my life. I believe that post-secondary education is crucial, because it builds off of the basis of knowledge received in high school. In this day and age, employers in nearly every field expect some type of degree, in addition to a high school diploma. Simple hard work and willingness to learn isn 't enough to secure a position in the Business Administration field that I would like to go into.
I want students to push themselves harder than they though possible, which has been modeled by my professors pushing me to do the same. Teachers are role models to show students that it is okay to not be perfect, but it is about trying to improve and persevere. George Fox has teachers that modeled and let me practice my own pedagogy, which will allow me to be a confident and effective educator. By finishing my education at George Fox I can show my students what it is like to set goals and finish them. I am a proud first generation college student
In the semester prior I had some challenges in my english class. The challenges weren’t really bad, but the challenges were affecting my grade. For example, I would procrastinate on doing the notes for “To kill a Mockingbird”, over the christmas break. Also, I found it harder to do the notes by myself than it was with a partner.
How life goes on we experience a lot of things that can either teach us an important lesson or nothing at all. I have learned more than one lesson in my life, but there’s one that I will always keep in mind to help others like it helped me. Thanks to John Tyler High School Drill Team I have self-confidence and courage to do risky things that I never thought I would be doing. Now I believe in myself and I don’t let fear dull my success, I fight for what I want until I get it even if it take a long time, I don’t give up that easy anymore.
