My mother is my role model because she has made me into what I am today. I follow in her footsteps because I would like to have an amazing job like her one day. I would like to be able to travels for sports or my job. She has pushed me to the best of my abilities every day and she’ll keep doing it. I’ll have to remember everything she taught me because I will be living on my own one day.
Legacy: First off, I’d like to thank my parents before anyone else. Between taking me to all my gymnastics competitions, practices, soccer games, basketball games, horseback riding lessons, I couldn’t put anyone before them. I wouldn’t be the athlete, student, or the person I am today if I didn’t have them in my life. My mom, Debra as most know, has had a great influence on my life. My mom and I are very close and I’m so glad I could have such an amazing relationship with my mom.
Chivalry is doing the right thing for the right reason at the right time. My mom never fails to show me the power of chivalry. Although there are many virtues my mother displays, faith, generosity, and courage are three that I notice the most. From little things like making me breakfast before school to taking me on shopping trips, my mom shows me how much she cares. Family is very important to my mom and I. I have an older brother who can get on my last nerve sometimes, but thankfully my mom is always there to make us best friends again.
She states that leadership tasks in school may gain the student a better chance of getting into that school they want to go to after high school. Or that getting closer to the administrative leaders and teachers may benefit the student in a long run. She has a high political role and she talks about her own story in order to influence the students in a good way. She talks about her journey getting from bottom to the top, about her goals, dreams and all the fighting along the way. “Of course, I struggled”, and “my story, can be your story”, she states, trying to tell the students that ‘she’s been there’ and that she understands their struggle.
For Linda, her ethical dilemmas come with her religion. She and her family are very involved with the church and her early practices with the families and clients it was difficult to separate the two. Her main drive to do good is religion. She has a genuine relationship with the Lord and knowing she is doing good in the world makes her feel
The mission statement that Big Brother Big Sister organization is “To build trusting and enduring relationships that encourage and support young people.” This mission statement meant so much too because when I was growing up the big sister that I had made me feel as though she was the big sister that I never had and really build a trusting relationship with me. This mission state suits this organization well because their
My leadership philosophy is a merger of my family and Military concepts of what it means to be an effective leader. My grandmother, a mother of 9 and grandmother of 27, was the heartbeat of our family. She instilled in us the values of hard work, trust and accountability. “You work hard and great things will happen”, “if people do not trust they won’t believe anything you say and nothing you say will matter”, and “when you make a mistake admit it, apologize and try to move on.” These particular quotes, amongst others, were constants in my grandparent’s home and in turn are a part of the foundation of my own leadership philosophy.
Now that I’m older my mother still teaches me to work for the things I want and advocate for myself as she did for me. She inspires me and pushes me to succeed. Not only have we formed a deeper bond but now we have also become an unbeatable team. As I begin my journey to leave for college I recognize the strength I’ve been gifted from my mom.
I don’t think I would be where I am in life without them. I can depend on anyone in my family to protect me and encourage me to achieve; I didn’t know I could do without them. I’m so thankful that I was raised to be the person I am today because I am a confident, educated, beautiful person. My parents have taught me so many personal aspects in life. I hope everyones parents are as great and supportive as mine.
I have spent many years working to make my community safe and joyous place and in college I hope to do the same. Throughout my years as a Southampton High School student I have volunteered at various events, met new people, and tried my best to make the world a more content place. I have put in hundreds of hours and my entire heart into working to make our town the best it can be. As the Key Club President, Relay for Life Captain, and Class Representative I have learned the true meaning of what it means to be a leader and essentially a teacher. I have learned what it means to be a problem solver and to rise every time I fall.
Although gymnastics took up a lot of her time schooling was valuable to her. Shawn Johnson has had many influences in her life to make her who she is her family has always been there for her, gymnastics was like her second home, and education was a top priority. The first influence Shawn Johnson has is her family. “Since I practiced Monday through Saturday, Sunday was our family day.”
She is loyal to the core and the most authentic definition of a champion the world has ever met. Her faith in me, and my potential is the sole reason that I’m pursuing a degree in elementary education. My hope is to reach students that are loosing confidence in school and themselves and assure them that they can do anything that they are willing to work for. It may not be easy but it’s possible. Mrs. Howell unquestionably instilled in me a love for learning and it is my mission to infuse that love into the hearts of children in my classroom for years to
That is what this life is about. You sacrifice for those you love. That is what my parent’s did. They brought my sister and I to this land of opportunity and even though they used their chance on us, their chance to follow their dreams, I will follow mine for them. People always ask me how I do so well in school, how I have the energy to do all the homework, study for the tests, do extra curricular activities, and never give up.
BI am here at the youth opportunity center now because I want a better opportunity in life and in jobs. I am here at the youth opportunity center now because I need to finish school. I’m here at the youth opportunity center now because I want to be able to learn new things. First, I believe I am ready to be successful for my daughter.
