The water was extremely high where she was, and she had been with her husband, who was bedridden and couldn 't walk. The wife had called for help for hours before she had to go outside and see if she could find anyone. She was also swept away, but she lived. Her husband however when the water got inside the house and he couldn 't get away. He just laid there waiting for his wife to come back, hoping he’d be saved before the water got to high, but she never came back.
As a college freshmen, there is no doubt that I still have a long ways to go in order to achieve my academic goals. And through this journey, I know that I will encounter highs and lows just as I experienced in the past, most notability in high school. I keenly remember instances around this time where I doubted my abilities when subjects like math was proving to be difficult, even when I was trying to put in effort to stay on track. I was struggling in math because I did not try to identify my weaknesses, and never tried to come up with solutions to fix my problems. Rather, I chose to give up on math and settle with a grade barely passing.
While I concede that graduating from medical school someday will be no easy feat, I am ready to take on any challenge that will stand in the way of becoming a doctor. Every student has inner ‘demons’ that he or she deals with personally. For me, my ‘demons’ like to follow me around all day, especially at school. Anxiety is my ‘demon’-- the monster that likes to accompany me as I sit in class and walk around halls.
I already had a strict plan and knew exactly what I had to do. My plan still lives up today and have not changed a bit. It has also caused several distractions which kept me from continuing, but I manage to find a way back. My plan was to study 2 years Media and Communication in High School.
When two sets of people are parenting one child differently without a set communication skills, there are many discrepancies and issues that can arise. The problem that was prominently the issue was communication and discipline. My cousin Zach got in with a bad crowd when he moved back in with his mother for technical school. Zach got pulled into the drug ring with his cousin from his mother’s side. He was even sent to a Juvenile detention center last summer in which he had the choice to go live with my aunt and uncle or stay in the detention center for another two weeks.
It felt like being stuck in the depths of water, searching for oxygen. I knew from that day, I would have to grow and overcome this mentally to become a stronger person, to support my mom and myself. As a child, I lived with the feeling of guilt, because I would think that the fights and arguments that took place were caused by me. I felt heartbroken as I had no power to stop it or control it. Which then led to fewer
Every summer i’d take many courses to advance and exceed in my classes, my parents having some knowledge about high school believed at one point that I had taken a summer course to make up a failing class due to the fact of how my older brother struggled during his years. Not being able to do much during the summer also limited my time to having fun and doing what I liked. Community service hours were never mentioned to me until my sophomore year surprisingly and I had a plethora of hours piled up to my normal schedule, up until now I have been able to do most of those hours but if I were told sooner I’d be done by now.
Therefore, people who have passion and perseverance and those who have taught and learned, achieve their long-term goal. I still agree with Duckworth idea about having and testing out grit to become better in life. On a personal experience, I was always struggling through high school. My goal was to be able to walk across the stage with my friends and graduate. So no matter what, I overcame every obstacle that was holding me back from my goal and I was able to graduate with my
but I was resilient. I didn’t let the fact that I was years of materials behind everyone else bother me. I continued to try my best and study hard, and with hard work and resilience, I was able to successfully graduate junior high school with good grades. I may have not graduated with flying colours, but I’m content with my results; especially knowing how much effort and hard work I’ve put into it and how resilient I was during the harder
Perfect Student Of Garber High Garber High was a life changing experience for some of us. It was challenging. There was no talking back to teachers, no “getting out of class just cause”, nothing. Garber high had many clubs available to join such as: NHS (National Honor Society), SLS (Students Leading Students), Student Council, etc.
“The task ahead of you is never as great as the strength within you”. I live by these quotes each day which shapes up of who I am. If I start something I must always finish and give it my all, whether it’s on the field and off the field. To give one-hundred percent in a game and in the classroom, that winners never quit, and quitters never win. Whether I win or lose, as long as I gave it my all, then that’s all that matters.
My Way to the 99% Club On the first day of the class it sounded as an impossible task. Today the 99% club is the dream came true. It didn’t require from me any supernatural abilities or exceptional knowledge. Therefore, anyone can achieve this goal if you make at least some efforts.
I see that other people are very important and there are a lot of things I can’t do on my own. Depending on a team is an amazing experience. I will always know that even now that Cheerleading season is over, our team will always be there for each other. I will forever be a part of my cheerleading squad and the memories I made will never be forgotten. My high school career has been very difficult at times, between working, keeping my grades up, and participating in extracurricular activities.
My older brother, who is legally blind, had places to go and as for my younger sister had scheduled events already planned. Although, my parents had been sick for awhile I didn 't recognize what type of pressure I put on them. It wasn’t just driving, it was everything. Then swiftly grasp that I didn 't know what responsibility truly was outside of school. I was falling into the majority.
