I do not that not let any setbacks or obstacles interfere with my education. I have maintain a 3.7 GPA despite of my after school job during my junior year. My mom told me during my tenth grade year that my junior year was going to either make me or break me. She explained I had to be really on top of my studies and I had no room for small mistakes.
Which led to me becoming more independent as I started to get more involved in my School. I can say I’ve experienced a lot positively and negatively getting hurt during my sophomore year really affected me but the way I’ve worked back showed my determination and
So life had to drastically transition from me being a lax sophomore that depended on my parents to plan everything for me and keep me in check for school work to living on my own and not having that sturdy support. At this school when I was learning to become an independent individual I had many opportunities to work on my time management and scheduling, and I had to learn how to get over my emotions on my own as a teenager with no parent or sibling to express these feeling to. Also through this whole school experience I had to have relationships with my teachers independently be able to figure out compromises and create bonds with them, without the help of parents and keeping a handle on my
During elementary school, I rarely struggled with the difficulty or workload. When I tested in and attended Whitney M. Young Magnet High School for 7th grade, I was soon overwhelmed by the stress and workload. Because of how independent I was in grade school, I struggled with figuring out how to lessen the stress and deal with it. I rarely approached my parents, because of their lack of knowledge about my coursework. Even though my grades began to drop, I continued to believe that I could handle it on my own.
People only judge on what they see on the outside. If they can’t see your illness, to them it doesn’t exist. You sit in silence as you hear the whispers and you see the odd looks, but you smile and go with life anyway. I was thirteen when the biggest battle of my life began, pain.
First concussion When you receive your very first concussion you must follow the steps and you have to know what's wrong. The reason you got your concussion is because your head violently crushed into your skull and became bruised. It's just like newton's first law because an object that is in motion stays in motion. As you experience your first concussion you may symptoms and not feel 100% for a while. To help your recovery your concussion you may need to do some of the following: rest, no phone, do not watch tv, refrain from work, do not read, etc because this will cause the recovery stage to be longer and could cause brain damage.
My first year in high school was the most challenging year I faced. I had few friends, intimidating classes, and a very low self esteem. My first few weeks were hard trying to fit in. Everything seemed so challenging and I couldn't help but hang out with the troublemakers in class. It was the only place I could find myself being able to make friends.
suffered my first concussion by hitting my head at the shallow end of a pool. I was thrown in the air from a shallow end of a pool to the deep end. I was thrown straight up instead of out and came straight down head first into the shallow end. I was conscious, however, my parents still took me to the E.R. When I was at the E.R. they did a Cat-Scan. Everything came back fine from the Cat-Scan and the doctors diagnosed me with a mild concussion. I had a foggy feeling for about four days. I rested for about a week before I participated in any physical activity. After about a week 's time I was feeling back to normal as far as I could tell. I started football three weeks after this first concussion. I did not need any medication or treatment for
One thing I am thankful for had to be my concussion, sounds strange right? Well we all have our stories but mine started during my freshman year basketball game. Going into the game, I thought we were walking out with an easy win because we played this team before and won. First lesson, don’t ever be cocky in a sport because it will bite you back. Of course, my team decided we were not going to take the game too serious since we won before and karma caught up with us really fast. Somehow, two quarters in and we were losing terribly but I had to let my team with a horrible fall to my head. In the beginning, I was unaware of injury to my head so I kept on playing till I felt dizzy and knew something was wrong. Even after my terrible fall, I wanted
I have faced many challenges in my life, but none have been as significant as my concussions. My concussions changed me; I found that I was not as indestructible as I thought I once was. The concussions opened my eyes to the "unfairness" of life.
The habitual internal clock is becoming more apparent as the game wears on. It is unusually hot for early October in Tulsa, Oklahoma and my whole body feels heavy due to exhaustion and possibly mild dehydration. I am trying to captain my team to a spot in the semifinals in one of the biggest youth soccer tournaments in the state and the clock continues to tick. An opposing player is sprinting full pace down the field with the ball glued to his feet, and I decide that a sliding challenge is my best chance of repossessing the ball. That’s all I remember though, the rest of the game and even that day are became a simple blur. As my body went in for the tackle the opposing player’s knee had followed through and struck the area right behind my ear
When I started Unity High School I thought that it was going to be boring school because my first choice was Skyline but my mom made me come to this school so I had to obey what my mom wants because she takes care of me and helps me with whatever I need help with so going to the school that she wanted me to go to was the least I could have done. I thought that high school was going to be difficult because the work that my brother would bring home when he was in high school looked really hard and I did not understand most of the work he needed to complete. But I realized that I need to be taught the material before I go on and do the work
Teachers are constantly working to prepare us for the next level. One time in school when my growth thrived was my first few days of high school. In these days, I was able to realize how far I’ve come and what it’s going to take to be successful in the school. From the start, I made the decision that I wanted to do my very best in high school to help my future. Ever since I’ve made this decision, I’ve grown into a hard working, knowledgeable person.
High school has impacted my life in so many ways. High School taught me so many things, from personal relationships to creating a relationship with my education. As a freshman, I made a huge amount of mistakes and I regret doing foolish things, but I’ve realized, I was only maturing into the young adult I am today. Freshman year, I was out of focus and I was only trying to find myself. I would also prioritize other things and ignore my parent’s advice, where they would tell me to focus in school and give it my full attention.
The past four years of my life hold both my highest of highs and my lowest of lows. High school can be a very awkward time period in a person’s life. Four years ago, I made the intimidating switch from St. Mary’s School to Algoma High School. There were certain aspects of high school which made me nervous, but academics was not one of them. I learned how to be a responsible student in my earlier years, and school had always come relatively easy to me.
