As a character who leads not only in school but also my community, I take pride in what I do and the way I do it. I believe I would make a perfect role-model student for our school and NHS. My values that I will bring to NHS are teamwork, independence, and being open-minded.
Because of the amount of experience and knowledge that I have gained throughout the course of being a member of Blinn TEAM, I think that it is fair to say that I am a seasoned and worth-while contestant to transfer into Texas A&M. Being on Blinn TEAM has taught me a different level of time management, prioritization, and dedication that I believe fully enrolled Texas A&M or Blinn students do not have the opportunity to experience. Not only am I a Blinn TEAM student- I am a member of the Corps of Cadets, a New Student Conference Orientation Leader, and a student worker. I have ingrained myself to Texas A&M not only academically, but by plunging myself into the culture and tradition. Because of my involvement, and the valuable lessons that
There are many characteristics and personality traits that play a role in a specific jobs. For a travel nurse there are a lot of different traits that you should have and or consider. Each characteristic I 'm going to talk about are traits that I have that I think are strong/fitting qualities of a travel nurse. #1 Someone who loves challenges. These nurses work with people who are in pain. They have to pack up and move from location to location as well as being away from home for a while. Some nurses work very long hours sometimes without breaks depending on the severity of the situation and sometimes you have to work under short time constraints. Remembering a wide range of medical information. All of which can be very challenging. #2 being
Many times people take things for granted. For example, we think since food is always provided to us we shouldn’t be thankful for it, or for pure drinking water or even for our freedom. Most of society receive this benefits, and we assume everybody gets them too, unfortunately that is not the case. Not all people can afford these privileges. We may not perceive them as that on the contrary, we think of them as needs, and fortunately for us we can afford to enjoy them. However, in the past this was not the case for most people. Even today people can't afford them. In the Devil’s Arithmetic, Hannah a 13-year-old girl realizes this after a spiritual awakening at the end of the story.
When I came to this country, unlike others, my family had no experience with how things worked here. Which meant whatever I learned here, was just a new to them as it was to me. My education became more about encountering and trying new things than about succeeding. Because you can succeed if you don’t know how things worked around here. From the moment, I set foot in this country, I knew no one will ever give me anything on a silver platter. The Even basic information I must find so I can be ahead of the curve. Being ahead of the curve was the only way I could have secured my path to achieving a similar or higher lifestyle as everyone else here. But this meant that I would have to assimilate into a culture I was unknown to. The best part of
3. Growing Up: Growing up is the process of becoming more mature and wise. As people get older, they begin to see the world in new ways and use past experiences to shape their decisions. The process of growing continuously adds more stress to lives, while simultaneously adding better rewards.
In the story The Outsiders, Cherry Valance said "things are rough all over".By this she means that the greasers aren't the only ones who have it hard.The Socs have more wealth but they have problems that money can't solve.The greasers don't have much money and think that money will solve their problems when it wont.
I became very sure of my quest to become a public health professional during my National youth service Corps (NYSC) year in my home country Nigeria. I had the opportunity of working as a medical officer in the very remote village healthcare setting. During my service year with the NYSC, I discovered that minor ailments, usually from infections, and some with fatal consequences, could have been prevented and many lives saved if it were not for the fact that those effected believed that the illnesses were evil spiritual afflictions or resulted from a curse by God. I was especially struck by the sight of a young child at the Children's emmergency ward with severe heel burns resulting from the superstitious belief that febrile convulsion was caused
Pom pom’s, short skirts, and lipstick. This is probably what first comes to your mind when you hear cheerleader. However, there is a lot more to cheerleading than that. Throughout these past four years Columbia athletics hasn't just taught me my physical strength, but also the values of commitment, hard work, dedication, leadership, and trust. These values have shaped me into the person I am today and I will continue to use these skills to guide me through my future life.
In the podcast “Lower Income, Higher Ed” NPR reporter Cuvvy Perpaterson ( I believe that’s what she said) discussed the issues high school students in D.C. face while applying and attending University. Perpaterson describes her interaction with one teenager; Christopher. He is a first-generation college student. “Christopher grew up in one of the poorest parts of Washington, D.C. He and his mother went through frequent bouts of homelessness when he went to high school — often staying in shelters.” Christopher illustrates his feelings about how attending University affected him. He speaks of how the first time he stepped into his dorm he couldn’t believe he has a space to call his own. He also expresses his fears of being alone and worries for
My name is Michelle Barron. I am 18 years old and I am currently a senior in High School. I was born and raised in Mexico. I lived with my mother and father, he was a U.S. citizen. My father wanted me to study on the U.S. so I could get a better education; he helped me to become a permanent resident of the U.S.
The Laramie Project and Hillbilly Elegy both focus on major real life issues that are good to be exposed to. Laramie Project is a play that starts very slow, giving a lot of details in the start that are not very intriguing. The story focuses a lot on character descriptions while introducing new characters at the same time. Some of the characters didn’t even have major parts but some ended up making sense.The story would have been better off getting straight to the point of the gay shooting. Later on in the story, the character descriptions started to make more sense. The play kicks it up a notch and begins to show some real value. It took a major turn diving into some of the major real life issues that still exist today.
What does success mean to me? It means accomplishing things in life and reaching your goals. Everyone has a different view of what success actually is. Success also means setting a goal and reaching it in a time frame you set for yourself. For example I believe finishing college and gaining a career in a field you love is being successful because it is a goal that can be achieved. Another person might think of success as making millions of dollars and having a huge house with nice cars this is also an achievable goal. I want nothing more than to graduate with a degree and start my career as a dental hygienist.
Moving to another school taught me that you have to try to work with your impediments in order to succeed. Nowadays it still hard for me to concentrate, but you have to learn how to deal with that. Because of this, I always was waiting for my mom to ask me questions about the topics, and she also was aware of the three of us, not just one. Also, the environments of schools helped me learn responsibility and were also able to sign up for after school to get help with my homework instead of leaving the entire responsibility to my
Emotional – To try to understand Linda’s emotional state we should look at Erikson’s fifth stage of development which is ‘Identity v Role Confusion’. This is related to how teens see themselves through identity and self concept. High self esteem is linked with teenagers who are close to their parents. Plenty of support and compliments along with promoting a positive image of Linda will hopefully raise her confidence and self
