My parent’s have taught me to never settle for anything less than a B. They know that in order for me to go to college and be successful, I not only have to get good grades but work hard to get there. I love a good challenge. Sometimes it’s not about the obstacles you face,
This freedom to explore made her become an independent individual because she wasn’t afraid to take risks. Being an independent person allowed her to have the traditional form of a leader. A family member that had such a large impact on her was her brother. Her brother and herself were in school around the same time. She was humbled because her parents never gave her praise to protect her brother.
"” (43) This is the one of the first times that is shown that Anse is hiding something about his feelings for Addie, the secret being that they are non-existent. ““It never bothered me much,” [Cash] said. "You mean, it never bothered Anse much," I said.” (230) at this point in the book Peabody realizes the extent that Anse has taken advantage of his children’s obedience, he is one of the only characters that have realized this.When examining the leg he also makes these comments “"I be damned if the man that 'd let Anse Bundren treat him with raw cement ain 't got more spare legs than I have." "God Almighty,” "why didn 't Anse carry you to the nearest sawmill and stick your leg in the saw? That would have cured it.
I knew this one younger woman who lived in poorly kept housing and went to a school where education didn’t matter as much as it should. And even though her GPA met but did not exceed the scholarships GPA she was still able to win the scholarship. That’s when I realized that the scholarship is not looking for who has the best GPA or test scores, they’re looking for the student who has a story to tell but was still able to overcome it and wants better for him/herself. One of the goals of the scholarship program is to reduce financial barriers for African American, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian Pacific Islander American, and Hispanic American students with high academic and leadership promise who have significant financial need. And I feel that the scholarship has kept its promise to help minority students reduce the loans and debt that they will have in the near future.
This article has given me many pointers on how to be successful in my life. Do not let anyone classify yourself as “smart” or “dumb” because you can be who you want to be. Nobody is dumb, they are just not trying hard enough. As it says in "You Can Grow Your Brain","At first, no one can read or solve equations. But with practice, they can learn to do it."
For instance, as I child I struggled in Mathematics. I never pictured myself to be receiving a Bachelor 's Degree in Math. I wanted to prove everyone wrong that I could do it. My parent 's encouraged me to go for it and I did with all their support. Additionally despite my parents getting a divorce when I was 12, they never argued.
I hardly find myself in trouble, sometimes though I forget to do my homework, all together, I will try my hardest and I never give up on anything, which sometimes doesn't help. In my entirety, I will work my hardest to have my things done. My parents said just about the same details I did which surprised me. I wasn't aware I knew myself so well. Well of course it wasn't exactly a carbon copy I left some specific thoughts out because I especially did not want to ramble on….
"Atticus ain't ever whipped me since I can remember. “I wanta keep it that way." Jem is portrayed as a person a person That cares what his dad thinks about him, and He strives to set a good example for his sister, He also strives to impress his
Although I was able to pass the class, and the passing grade on my AP test meant I got my grade boosted to an ‘A’ automatically, the failure I felt in the first couple of months was unlike anything I had experienced at that point. If I had not been desperate to find a better way to study, I wouldn’t have discovered that music soundtrack, and I might never have discovered Sierra Boggess and her powerful quotes. Even though I wasn’t happy at the time with my abysmal test and quiz scores, I’m glad I was able to learn this lesson that I am already enough, as it has changed my entire outlook on life so much. Now the next time I’m disappointed with a test score, or angry with myself for messing something up, I will be able to remind myself that I am always
After some time I thought about it and realized it was a lesson to keep in mind. The lesson was that sometimes you have to work at things harder than others to achieve your goals. I know now that my volleyball skills may not come as easily as it did for other people but I can still be as good as them I’ll just have to work a little harder to achieve my goal. This doesn’t only go for volleyball but anything else in life.
The best way to get back at a dirty team is to score goals and win the game, since fighting is not beneficial. In college, Mia Hamm learned how to possess mental and physical toughness from her coach, Anson Dorrance. Hamm briefly explains that young girls should be pushed to be the best athletes they can be. An inspirational quote I find interesting is when Hamm states, “Before you win, you must have the will to prepare the win.” I find this quote highly moving because it is very realistic, if you want to win you must mentally and physically prepare yourself for the game and have confidence. I can relate to Hamm when she explains that young girls should be pushed to excel in sports, since my own soccer coach gives my team this advice.
During my time in high school, I would get Bs and Cs, but now at Brookdale, I am getting grades I could only dream of and also enjoy learning athte same time. For example, the ALP was tough at first but during all the journals, the freewrites, and the essays were really were not so bad and they were easier because I paid attention to my professor on writing better and to make my emotions on paper,. To summarize how Brookdale was a good choice for me was I met good people, the courses, less money to spend, has a great hands on learning experience, and getting good grades. For all the new students in the ALP, learn and enjoy being in that program because that program really helped me learn two English courses in one semester so that
I don’t really know why I was invited into National Honors Society, for I know I do well with grades but, my grades aren’t what define me. My actions are what define me. Who I am is someone who is always trying to be someone better morally. Someone who is trying to be smarter than they were the day before, even if it 's just a little. I am trying to be an uplifting person and an influence for good around me by do a small act of service every day.
When I say that I am going to do something, I will do anything and everything I possibly can to get it done. Not once have I thought that I was unequal to the next person. When the odds are stacked against me is when I truly believe I am strongest. A scholarship would assist me in achieving my long-term goal of Social Work and being able to help disadvantaged youth overcome adversity. My grades are not spectacular, but they are solid.
