They were strictly condensed through religious studies in order to lean how to read and write. They had no sense of privacy throughout their childhood and no freedom. Most wore the same clothes as they were portrayed as the same status of intelligence. Commonly, puritans believed that well and behaved educated children would make a connection of purification though god, themselves, their relatives and the rest of the puritan
Throughout my entire life, I have challenged myself not only academically but also to better myself, and my community. I try my best at everything that I do, whether that is in my schoolwork, at home, or at work after school. Often times when people hear that I am an only child, they assume that I get everything handed to me, but that assumption is completely wrong. My parents have always taught me that you must work for success. I believe that I have been pretty independent for most of my life, not only because my parents got divorced when I was ten years old, and because I am an only child, but also because my dad moved to Colorado leaving me with only my mom and grandparents in town as my family.
Student athletes often struggle with keeping their grades up in school. Not only do they have to study and have to do their homework every night but they also have to practice every day. Student athletes have to work harder than non-athletes to get their work done, but they can do it if they really put their mind to it. Most student athletes depend on their grades to get in the college of their dreams and play for their favorite team. They need good grades in high school if they want to get accepted to their dream school and play college ball.
Living as a low-class minority, college education is a major problem for me. I was oblivious to the idea of applying to a big university because of my lack of confidence in myself, my education level, and my financial needs. When I started ninth grade, the talk of college increased and people warned us to start preparing for the whole process. I was unaware of the specific requirements for applying to a college. Growing up, the only thing I knew was to study hard, and get good grades.
I recognized then, I wanted a career so that when I decided to have a family of my own we wouldn 't have to face the financial burdens that plagued my youth. I enrolled in Community College and worked throughout my 4 years there. Trying to adapt to the school-work-life balance was not an easy task. This was my first year as a college student, and my grades were extremely poor due to juggling a full-time job, and a full time school schedule. I ended up failing sociology twice and being placed on academic probation.
The fact that there are so many engineers in my family, had inspired me to take up electrical engineering. Right from childhood, I was very engrossed in finding out alternative solutions to real life problems. Gradually, I started building interest in the logic behind
Of all the schools to which I applied, only VSU waitlisted me probably because of my phobia about standardized examinations, which caused me not to perform as well as I should have on the SAT. But being waitlisted encouraged me to become more determined to compose convincing correspondence to enter VSU in the spring semester of
The knowledge, skills, and opportunity that New England Academy has provided me, throughout my high school years, has impacted my way on how to approach the world for my transition into college and the vast, bright future ahead. For five years, I had been enrolled in my public school district in my home state, New Hampshire. Throughout my middle school years, I found myself struggling to survive everyday in silence due to being severely teased enough to be driven into frustration and isolation. I had no hope nor interest for my future, and nearly had given up everything. By ninth grade, I had become fed up and had no chance to grow as an individual.
Growing up in Compton, California was difficult in terms of goals. I could set high goals to achieve, but the reality of my lack of resources would still pull me down. In middle school I was an excellent student whose hard work earned praise from teachers. However, this praise meant little to me since I was also aware about my community’s underachieving schools. My older brother would tell me about the bullying, fights, and riots that would occur at Dominguez High School.
I continued most of those activities throughout the rest of high school. Some things changed, like I joined National Honors Society, cross country, and the fall musical but was unable to continue with basketball (yet still managed) and math team because I lost interest. I loved being the student who was super involved, taking all the challenging classes and being at the top of the class. My senior year, however, was lower than where I set myself up my first few years. After I tore my ACL in May of my junior year, I noticed that the rehabilitation process was going to be a long road that required a lot of time and effort to get back to full strength.
