For years I have dreamt about getting into my favorite college. The rush I would get as my school’s football team ran out of the tunnel. All the new people I would meet that would become my friends for life. It is now November of my senior year and I have decided to go to Colorado State University. I am without a doubt that Colorado State is the school I dreamt about all these years. Growing up, I wanted a place that challenged me physically, academically, and spiritually. I believe the Colorado State Honors Program would be a great fit for me.
To make a significant change in the world, countless hours of preparation, of work, and proactive cooperation with others are crucial for success. I partake in few extra-curricular activities, but I have dedicated years of my life to them all. On a regular week, I have to balance French club and National French Honor Society secretary duties, community service for National Honor Society, and additional choir practice for at least two hours after school each week (while sometimes performing community service with the choir as well). I want to become an engineer; so I take AP classes that are useful and interest me because I will need to know advanced math and science concepts in college. All of these extra-curricular activities and academics will become even more relevant when it is time for me to advance my future goals of pursuing a higher education and making significant efforts to aid the world by designing helpful technology with medical applications.
I have swum with Caribbean reef sharks in the Bahamas and have seen how beautiful and strong they truly are first hand. Sharks are a vital part to every ecosystem they are in and currently being killed at a rate that they cannot reproduce at. Alpha predators are a necessary component of eco-systems because they keep the populations of every trophic level below them in check. You can compare an eco-system to a skyscraper; you need every single part so the entire building does not fall apart. Sharks have the task of killing the wounded, old, and sick fish in schools to keep the stocks of fish healthy and plentiful. Andy Dehart, Discovery Channel Shark Advisor, spoke about the North Carolina shark over fishing problem. The shark populations on the East Coast were extremely over-fished which lead to the over population of sting rays, a main food-stock for sharks. The stingrays in turn decimated the shellfish populations on the East Coast, leading to calm and shellfish shortages. This shows that sharks are necessary for every eco-system and their destruction affects us in more ways then we can imagine. Sharks are very at-risk for over-fishing because they take a long time to reach the stage where they can reproduce and in general only have a few pups when they give birth. Most sharks only have one or two pups every time they give birth. These factors make the time-period
I am ready to board the ship, and set sail – pointing towards a bright future of being an ECU pirate. Being admitted into the Honors College at ECU would be the catalyst to a successful future. As a high school senior, I am considering many universities and believe that being apart of the ECU community would allow me to reach my full potential. Growing up I have always set high standards for myself academically and extracurricularly. I participate in many clubs at my school including BETA club and National Honor Society. Not only do these clubs recognize academic excellence, they also provide many opportunities for community service. Blood drives, food drives and Operation Christmas Child are only a few of the projects that we participate in throughout the year. I am
I am Juan Carlos Gomez and I am a proud Mexican-Salvadorian. In the seventeen years that I have been alive, I have been living in a trailer. I live with only my mom as her job is working in a kitchen at South Lyon County Hospital. I am very hard worker as I try my best in everything I do. I make sure that I give my all all the time in order to go further in my life. In High School, I have taken a total of nine Honors and AP classes combined. I have taken English l Honors, English ll Honors, Horticulture Science, Plant Science Horticluture, Anatomy and Physiology Honors, AP Literature and Composition, Pre- Calculus Honors, AP English Language and Composition, and Calculus Honors. All these classes are achievements for me because I was able to
The National Honor Society is known for recognizing students with outstanding grades and admirable characters. I choose challenging courses every year. For example, this semester I am taking Honors World History, Chorus 2, and AP Chemistry. Though I struggle in some of these courses, I spend countless nights studying to maintain a 4.1 G.P.A. Science is a very prestigious passion of mine, and I hope to strive in such research. I participate in the Youth Achievers Committee Science Fair every year, and
The college that I chose is the Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA) asleep known as Kings Point. The United States Merchant Marine Academy is one of five U.S. academies it is highly regarded for the transportation industry and has some branches in the military. The Academy offers studies in International law and customs, personal management, marine navigation, and marine engineering along with the various other jobs and majors that account in running a large ship.
After extensive research on ETSU’s honors program, I decided that becoming a Buccaneer Scholar is for me. I chose to apply, because the honors program will bring me closer to my dream of becoming a general surgeon by preparing me for the intensity of medical school. In order to succeed at medical school, it is imperative to have passion, confidence, and discipline- qualities that describe an honors scholar. I believe that the challenge of honors will instill the knowledge needed to not only succeed in medical school but throughout my life. Therefore, I chose honors at ETSU as the path that will lead me to my dream.
I have learned if there is an opportunity for a greater contribution in life, go for it. I am interested in pursuing a place in English 1102 due to my work ethics and my interests in analytical and argumentative writing. In my past three years of high school, I would only take the high level classes in order to challenge myself, but I never knew the true meaning of being in an honors class until I started attending East Mountain. My incentive to be in multiple honor classes started my freshman year. When I started attending East Mountain I experienced an immense amount of reading assignments compared to a regular class, but it didn’t stop me from doing my best. Although it was the most work I had done throughout my years of high school, the complexity of the class only challenged me to work harder and to read in between the lines. My intentions for next year are to work twice as hard and improve my reading, critical thinking, oral, and analytical skills in English 1102.
Hello, I am Ronald Wilson Reagan. I was born on February 6, 1911, in Tampico, Illinois. My father 's name was Jack Reagan and my mother 's name was Nelle Wilson Reagan. When I was born my dad came rushing through the door and looked at me once and said that I looked like a little dutchman and that nickname stuck. I was called dutch for most of my childhood. My dad drank a lot of alcohol and since our family couldn 't handle the shame, my family moved around most of the time. I was the new kid in school all the time . My first job was a lifeguard on the Rock River. I was fifteen years old. I saved 77 lives and a set of false teeth. Every time I saved a life, I would put a notch on a old log lying by the river.
For most of my life lived in Wisconsin. I graduated from Mahone middle school and had mostly A's and B's from my class. Most of my classes were not honors and it never appeared to me that I would go far in life. So when I enter Glen and Fike High school, everything changed dramatically in my academic.
“I thought that fish freak you out?” I ask. When we were on one of our first dates, I had wanted to order some salmon off the menu. He refused to let me. He said he had this weird phobia of fish. It didn’t matter if they were cooked up and served on a plate or swimming around, he refused to be around them or even look at them.
Freeman Hrabowski, currently President of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, lived in Birmingham, Alabama during the Civil Rights movement. At twelve years of age, he participated in a Children’s Crusade demonstration organized by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and other leaders of the time. Hrabowski’s motivation for participating was his passion for learning and the desire to ensure equal educational opportunities for minority children. His passion for education has never abated.
"Shark Girl" is a documentary about a 19 years old girl named, Madison Stewart, who goes by the name "Shark Girl". Madison Stewart went on a journey to prove to people that sharks are not man-eater or as harmful as they are thought to be. Conventions and techniques were used in this documentary "Shark Girl' used Madisons' perspective and what she knows about sharks to help persuade the audience's perspective of sharks being the so called monsters of the sea. The three techniques I choose were; selection of details, interviews and archival footage. The documentary encourages viewers to protect sharks and not kill/harm or fish them out of their natural habitat. This is because the numbers of sharks are perishing and will affect the reefs ecosystems.nah
Every few years since I was five my grandparents would take my sister and me to a new place, whether to just visit with relatives or to see something new. A few years back, my sister and I went with them to Minnesota to visit some of my grandpa’s relatives. On the way there, we stopped in Chicago to visit his brother. While we were there, we visited the Natural History Museum and went to the Chicago Aquarium.
