There are memories that I will surely cherish and memories that might still haunt me until today, but I will never forget that these are the experiences that transform me into becoming a better version of myself before. I wouldn’t say that I am comfortable being in college. I still am struggling with many things even if I become mature. There would still be times where I would study; times when I would slack off and times when I just want to give up. Juggling the projects, home works, reports I need to submit in every subject is difficult.
Most of the course that I didn’t great in were course that were not in my major but that I took to get credits. I opted not to take suepr easy classes because I like learning new things and to challenge myself. Those tough classes with not great grades are what dragged my cummalitive GPA down. I expect to keep increasing my knowledge and to keep improve my social work skills.
But after my visits to Lindenwood I understand all the ways that help is accessible to me. And since my failure in Algebra 2 the year prior I’ve gained new ways to make it fool proof that I remember to do my work. With the help of calendars, alarms on my phone, and writing and recording notes as the professor speaks I feel that I am prepared to succeed at college. With these tools I fully plan on surpassing others in my pursuit of higher education.
After a few years in the workforce, I realized that I must not spend any more of my youth on entry-level jobs that hold little to no meaning to me. Now is the time to advance myself and to explore endless possibilities with the right education. Therefore, I enrolled myself in Sinclair Community College. Every day, Sinclair astounds me with their commitment to prepare students for a bright future. Choosing a major is stressful but I must have a clear path to the finish line.
I’ve really learned that life is only what you make it. If it wasn’t for the frightening conversations, the throbbing headaches, and the gigantic D’s and F’s on my paper , I wouldn’t have wanted a change. My mind was set up to just pass the class, but I was determined to be so much more. I was going to beat the odds, and prove everyone wrong no matter how hard it may have
As growing a university student in foundation, I tackle an immense amount of questions everyday. While some are faily easy to answer ,others may take time to think about as they are preparing me for the rest of my life . After all, is not that what university is about? One of the biggest,most crucial and most popular questions arise towards the end of my second semester in foundation .People keep asking me on what course will I continue for my degree .Nowadays, people think that going to the university is no longer an option as it is a necessity in the society that we live in .In
The variety of activities I was a part of showed character and how much I had to divide my time between. I felt that the ratio of my grades to how many extra-curricular activities better showed how I was as a student to the colleges I applied to. It shows practical abilities like time management, versus something unrealistic to my life plan, like titrating acids and bases for a redox reaction. These experiences through so many different time commitments aided me in my journey to figuring out where I wanted to end my academic career and what meant finally academically
Lastly, I realized that high school is all about who you want to impress and college is all about what you want. As an individual, I learned to stop trying to impress others, and I began to focus on satisfying myself in order to succeed for the rest of my high school career while enjoying it at the same time. A failure can temporarily mislead you in the wrong direction, but it will eventually lead you to success in many different aspects in
My Educational Journey Today I would consider myself an average student. On occasion I tend to slack off but what student doesn’t. At the end of the day, I always try my hardest to be the best possible student I can be but, life isn’t perfect everyone has setbacks but we have to work through it. Don’t take obstacles as a negative switch them into a positive use them as motivation to keep going, Ralph Marston states “you turn a negative into a positive, you gain twice. You are no longer burdened with the negative situation, and in addition to that you are strengthened by a new positive force”.
The most important thing for me is an enjoyable environment in which my potential for learning can flourish. Coming to UWSP I found myself missing that environment, everything else I found enjoyable except the environment for learning. I need my own space so I could focus in my studies, and sadly it was too late when I finally realized that the dorm life it 's not for me. I was a high honors student in high school and I wish I could transfer that into college, but this semester has been extra hard to keep up with regular hours of studying.
Going through daily life you experience many different things, and most of them are the daily rigors of life that you do not think twice about. However, sometimes you have experiences that are not part of your average day, and those are the experience, I believe you learn the most from. One experience that has contributed the most to my development since I have been at West Point is the investigation into the lacrosse team last year. While I was not involved in the investigation, I experienced the effects and aftermath of the investigation. One way it affected my development is that it made me truly understand the impact leaders have on a group.
My identity has always felt inextricably linked to what Miami is. A city that is teeming with immigrants, a city with dreams stacked and slopped atop each other, and a city that is living proof of the failed American dream. I say so because of my early observation that generation after generation of immigrants often seemed to stay trapped in dead end jobs; I saw this within my own family – within my grandmother, my aunts and uncles, and even my cousins. Here it was even within my own family tree the deep implicit message that there was no way out of our socioeconomic level. When I made it into an Ivy League college, it was a message that was slowly re-enforced by the fact that my demographic was the most represented in the custodial staff rather than within my own classmates.
