Hello, I am Jakeline Guerrero Hernandez and I am just going to tell you a little bit about myself. I will begin with my academics, so last year I was part of the Jump Start program in which I got to complete my first year of my associate’s degree while still in High School. This semester I am taking some courses at the campus as well as online. This will be my first time taking online courses so if any of you have any suggestions they are greatly appreciated. I decided to take this course because I had Kim as my Jump Start professor for history and really enjoyed her class she definitively has a way of making history interesting and fun.
My favorite season by far would be autumn, winter as a close second. Autumn has always been a season of peaceful business, beautiful colors, and the best flavor ever: pumpkin. With its dying plants that equal gorgeous drives and Halloween where we get free candy and can run around dressed as crazy people without anyone batting an eye. Lots of things happen in autumn, it’s a season of change. I have had a lot of changes throughout the years, one was quite recent actually, I passed my senior moves in the field with a bit of drama.

My Legacy By Drew Gawlas I wish to leave a personal legacy to my children, one that will live on in their hearts. I do not want to leave behind something with no purpose or meaning, like a meaningless item of mine. Rather, I want to teach my children important values. Of all the wonderful things my parents have ever given me, the greatest gifts were the pieces of moral guidance that shaped me into the person I am today. The legacy I will leave for my children will be the values I teach them throughout their childhoods: compassion, hard work, and confidence.

Although she was a few minutes late, I arrived at the interview fifteen minutes early because I knew Mrs. Olivia Robertson was fond of being on time. "Sorry I'm late, I was just heating up my lunch" she said. We walked extremely fast to her office, sat down and began conversing. She never touched her food. Her office was big and decorated with pictures; pictures on the wall showed her and her husband along with their 2 kids.
It is a beautiful moment when you have complete clarity of what you want to be when you grow up. I have always had an interest in pregnancy and infants. I was always watching birthing shows on tv when I was a young but I never really thought anything of it. Until I was about 16 I had no idea what I was going to be and then it hit me.
I was a mentor at the Phi Theta Kappa chapter at Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus Wolf Pack Mentoring Program. In this program I was able to be a mentor to two first year Honors College students, Simonet and Samantha. This has being my most meaningful involvement in a student organization, because this was a program where I was able to make a positive impact in my peers’ life. When I started college I wished I would have had someone I could definitely count on to ask questions, study, or just talk about life as a college student, and with this program I was able to provide that to them. As a mentor I helped my mentees with choosing classes, professors, giving them advice on how to study for a test, or how to handle a service learning project.
In high school, I was engaged in a variety of elective classes and extracurricular activities. I never considered myself a superb student, but I had a thirst for any information that I could get my eyes on. My plans to become a U.S. Marine were nearly confirmed throughout my Junior and Senior years of high school, but I continued to find myself enrolled in the most challenging courses offered at my small, private school. Apart from classes, I was passionate about percussion and, in particular, our school’s budding drum line program, which had its inaugural session during my eighth grade year.
