By the time I graduate high school, I will already have my college associate degree that I will have earned through my hard work and dedication. Even though I went through a lot at such a young age, it has shaped me in every possible way. I was exposed to a whole different language and culture, but I was able to succeed through my strong desire of success and dedication. I am thankful for every challenge that I had to go through because if it was not for them, I would not be the person I am
Personal and family success can be obtained by getting a good education and securing a good job or career. Community success takes a little longer, especially if the community has been on an economic roller coaster ride since the 1950s and 1960s. Roseland is the community in Chicago I decided to call my home. I have resided in Roseland for about two years now.
My alarm went off at six on an early June morning. My body is physically not used to waking up this early, but the desire to go back to sleep was quickly outweighed by the mixture of excitement and fear of leaving. I was going to a third-world country on the opposite side of the world. After months of preparation through fundraising, learning about the culture and environment, getting shots, and praying for this trip, the day was finally here. I placed the remaining items in my suitcase that I would be living out of for the next three weeks and stepped into the car to head to the airport with my parents.
The time had arrived for me, my sister, and my aunt to board the plane. Once I stepped foot on the plane, I knew it was real, and there was no turning back. My heart was beating out of my chest, but we were fortunate to be through the awful sincerity on our way to Egypt. Before I knew it, we were in the air and headed to see my baby cousin. After sixteen hours on a plane and spending an extra day in Illinois, were finally in Egypt.
In the beginning, I started working when I was 17 years old. I worked at a retail store in Bloomfield, New Jersey after school and on the weekend. I began working at an early age because I want to stand on my own feet and I do not want to rely on my family.
We drove all the way to Dexter as they proceeded to ask me the usual questions: how my flight went, if I had met any new friends, and so on. All I wanted was to get home to study my flashcards that I had been using on the plane. This next week was leading up to one of the pivotal moments in my life, because I would go to my first day at my new high school. I wasn’t sure what to expect.
The airport seemed gigantic to my six-year-old self. It was the first time I had been to an airport, so the process of a plane taking off baffled me. We were waiting by the baggage claim when I saw my grandma. I took her bags and we started to make our way back to the car. Before leaving the airport, my
This issue is not only present at the L&N STEM Academy, but is also present at other schools. Limited parking forces students to wake up and leave for school earlier in order for them to find a parking place. For example, a student in New York comments about how parking issues have affected his time. An article points out, “FOR Evan Dunn, the morning commute is a pain. ‘I wake up earlier and earlier to get a parking spot,’ he said” (Rosenberg).
When we got to the top of the hill there was a helicopter, a launch pad and a small building that looked like a cabin. We went into the building and we got brochures about the helicopter then we went up to the counter. My grandma found out the price for the helicopter rides and she decided on the mount rushmore over view trip. After waiting for 30 minutes a helicopter that smelled like perfume from the previous people. I smelled really weird
I Hoped to learn all the requirements and exact stuff like how many hours for certain requirements.

The feeling of soaring through the air made every last second seem as if i was floating on a cloud in heaven.

He heroically saved his unconscious partner and himself by carrying his partner and jumping out of the plane when it malfunctioned and blew up. For this courageous action.

Migrating to Raleigh in Aug. 2012, I had to decide between a community college and a four-year university to further my education. Evaluating my financial standing and my parent’s emotional condition of immigrating to a new place, I took the decision to take some time off.

In Jan. 2013 I joined a nearby community college and worked my way juggling between my classes, work, and family.
