My quality world entails several aspects of what I dream of. College being the first step into the real world is a crucial necessity for my success. In order to have a successful life in my book, I need to acquire the education I want for my careers. It’s important that I learn study skills in college that I will use in real life, such as: organization, time management, networking, asking the right questions and empathy. Time management allows me to use my time effectively or productively, whether I’m at work, home, or school.
I have spent many years working to make my community safe and joyous place and in college I hope to do the same. Throughout my years as a Southampton High School student I have volunteered at various events, met new people, and tried my best to make the world a more content place. I have put in hundreds of hours and my entire heart into working to make our town the best it can be. As the Key Club President, Relay for Life Captain, and Class Representative I have learned the true meaning of what it means to be a leader and essentially a teacher. I have learned what it means to be a problem solver and to rise every time I fall.
I have already gotten to do that a lot through volunteering with National Honor Society. That organization showed me why it is crucial to help your community and also created a love of volunteerism within me. We can always do more though. Throughout my high school years I had the chance of doing a lot of work for my community and now I will get the chance to impact a new one. Since I will be leaving Jacksonville to go to college in Fayetteville, the only thing I can do for my old city is encourage its citizens to continue to better the city.
I am responsible for my own success and ADHD will not stop me from accomplishing my life goals even if it means having sticky notes all over my room, the car, and on my notebooks. The responsibility that comes with ADHD as a young adult can be overwhelming but gratifying. It allows me to be a VISIONARY creative in my approach to control my repetitive actions, stay focused, not forget, and stay motivated. I must remain committed to continuing what works best for me no matter what anyone else thinks and hopefully inspire others who feel ADHD limits their abilities. My ETHICAL behavior was challenged before my diagnosis, not distinguishing right and wrong behavior.
Hearing his passion for this school is definitely something to be both amazed at and inspired by. I realized that being a part of the Wentworth Institute of Technology community is not only about using the abundant resources to better yourself, but it is also to promote growth in others by using those same resources. When choosing an action that will have any impact on another member of the Wentworth community, I need to take their account into consideration. By being a part of a community, I need to learn to help others, as well as help
This is partially why I am applying to the Integrated Social Sciences degree. I believe that this is the best fit for my learning style, and I know I will be able to apply myself fully to this major. The largest part of this decision, however, is the knowledge of learning about different cultures. Being raised multi-ethnic, I was entranced by cultures around the world because I found a familiarity in the traditions of others that I did not find growing
Challenging for me because I am documenting a place/time in someone’s life that can have an effect on the rest of their life. Gratifying for me because I have the knowledge that can aid someone in bettering their life. This internship that I have embarked is not just to fulfill a requirement at school, but to better me as a person and professional. The Focus Center is a community based organization that believes in the ABCD model which is identified as Asset Based Community Development.
Because I have never been out of the country before, my exposure to other cultures has been limited by borders. The Honors Trip will allow me to expand my horizons beyond just American culture, which is important to my understanding and acceptance of others. Leadership and independence are two important qualities for Honors Students to possess. By going on this trip, I hope to further develop both my leadership skills as well as my independence. As mentioned earlier, I am an introvert who struggles to get out of her own bubble.
I also think it’s important to have things in common to build a strong relationship. For me being a pre-med student is a big part of who I am and what I want to accomplish in the future. The road there is long and requires a lot of time and dedication. However, join organization like a sorority is something I believe will benefit me then just going to school then back home.
I also look forward to being able to support myself and someday a family. Working hard is something I 've always pushed myself to do. Getting a degree, getting the job of my dreams, and being happy at that job is just a few things I work hard for everyday while going to school. It is about accomplishment for me and earning what I work
I know that being a RA would be optimal for me since I want to be part of a community. Being apart of a community is a key factor of being successful in college. I want to be a support system to my residents and fellow staff members. It is a highly rewarding experience when you feel like you have made a difference in someone’s life. I pledge to initiate a change in all of my residents lives.
My parents have guided me throughout my life with valuable life lessons. One moral in particular they have taught me is that I should enjoy what I value the most in life. At first, my foremost passion was my education, so I wanted to focus on my academics for life. There was just one problem: I would have been very inactive. Even though I do not have inherited talent in athletics, I knew I would maintain healthiness, have an improved mentality, and make many new friends with an active lifestyle.
My father immigrated from Guatemala when he was 19 to support his family back home. My mother, from El Salvador while fleeing the revolutionary war. They have worked hard, exceptionally hard, for me not to pursuit my dreams of joining the Peace Corps. This is a I considered filling out an application to join the Peace Corps straight after college but glad I waited. I have gained experience, but more importantly, I have matured mentally and emotionally and I am capable of understanding what it would require of me to leave my family, home, and career for two years and I am ready.
