When completing my self-discovery tapestry, there were a few things that have been important and remains vital until now. I have always been a happy person from a young age and has kept that positive mood throughout my life. I had sad moments happen in my life but it was nothing I could not turn around to become positive. Another element that has always been important in my life is being creative. From the time, I started kindergarten, I was always creative in doing projects.
This quote proves how appreciating instead of us complaining can give a lot. Including good vibrations. The image that is created of a person in society is based on the actions and the way a person talks along with their attitude. This proves how thankfulness will just help the image of yours to be even greater in society. In the text “The Valiant” it states, “… and he
While stationed in Guam I was assigned to the 36th Security Forces Squadron outside my career field. Every few years the base holds a defender challenge for the major command where a few security forces members from each base participate in a three day long challenge. The vision of this event is designed to mentally and physical challenge its defenders endurance. There is an obstacle course, land-navigation, and live-fire shooting course to name a few. I was the only supply person assigned to the host unit and in my leaderships foresight they failed to request another supply person from base supply.
Furthermore, i love the feeling I get when I explore new ideas, histories, beliefs, and scenarios. It not only increases my knowledge, but also helps me overcome problems that I am dealing with. I get to experience life’s problems, pleasures, and I come out of my personal bubble to become a better person by exploring new cultures. Travelling is my passion because it’s something that I am not afraid to chase after. I get to learn more and more about myself and I am able to expand my horizons every time I travel.
In the different assessments, I noticed that whether the assessment was regarding my strength, personality, or interest each assessment connected with each other, to bring me together into a person who applies her positive approach and uses her intuition in her career. Each assessment helped me take a different approach into my career exploration. They taught me how to apply myself and to know that each person has a different talent that can fit into any career. Taking the assessments opened my eyes to new ideas I would have never thought of trying. I can now finally take a comfortable step into finding my career after taking the self
I want to isolate myself from the chaotic life of the urban areas and to set aside for some time all the technological gadgets that are available and are often not necessary. I want to interact with people, work alongside community members, transmit knowledge, have the opportunity to experience life in a manner from what I am used to, put myself through different situations and circumstances that would help me understand and appreciate life, my surroundings and the needs of others. Joining Peace Corps will be a great opportunity for me to grow as a person, to cultivate my compassionate spirit, to become more culturally aware, and most importantly to practice my skills and continue to develop
I had a goal in life, I had a drive, and I had a support system that wanted me to succeed. I stopped getting in trouble, and focused all my energy within my academics, and it really did pay off. I am now a part of Phi Theta Kappa, with a 3.91 GPA currently, and I honestly could not be happier. It is still a constant struggle every day, to deal with all of my problems without any form of medical help besides counseling, but it’s something I’ve learned to survive
Even though today there is still racism around the world, I have spread my culture and beliefs. I have also learned about other cultures, race, and language around the world. This has opened my eyes and made me understand that even if we are not the
Growing up with a military Dad meant two things: I did wall sits and physical training when when I got in trouble, and I never stopped moving to different places. Having a Dad in the Army gave me the opportunity to move to different places, however I was also pushed to grow up at a faster rate than other kids my age. My childhood has given me so many things, good and bad, but the good definitely outweighs the bad. The Army has had a huge impact on my life and on the person I have become. This, ladies and gents, is my spectacular odyssey.
Life in the city of New York wasn’t so great, during the first months my parents and I lived in a cramped, antiquated bedroom and it made it difficult for us to have a sort of normal life—even though, till this day, I question the real definition of what a “normal life” is supposed to be? For three years, I thought of my life here as lugubrious. I nostalgically missed my mountains, my family, my friends, my old life. The sole thought and yearn that constantly swirled through my head was the thought of returning home, Colombia. I went to high
The Traditions, Silence, and Life Within Everyone has new things to listen and learn from on a daily basis. Silence is important in both, but to ask questions is more important. To be thankful for the life we live is greater. In Richard Wagamese’s novel, Keeper ‘N Me, it teaches about the importance of learning, listening, silence, and every life within the land of the Ojibwe people.
I 'm sure that college fantasy will change and morph into something else as I change and morph with passing time. Likewise, my life goals will most likely change, however the underlying theme seems to remain the same. I want to be able to say that I went through and finished college, went traveling in my studies while I am still young, and made meaningful connections to people that I love. Most of all, I want to make a difference I can be proud of, and remain happy throughout my long adventure of life where ever it takes me. Now that you have a bit more insight to some of the decisions and experiences in my life, maybe you can understand why you would get so many different answers when asked who I am.
I went through a phase where I was very closed off to everything and unwilling to try new things. Three years after this original move, I moved from Phoenix to Columbus, Ohio. Right before this move, I was beginning to come out of my shell and return to the original person I had been for the fourteen
