At the time, I did not know, that Mock Trial was going to change my high school career. During my first year as a trial attorney, I not only improved immensely in my public speaking and communication skills but also made new friends. After a successful year and great scores at two regional competitions, I was truly proud of our team's achievement. However, many members just seemed to be completely disinterested. That is when I decided to step up and ran for the Mock Trial President position with one main goal— to unite the team.
Last summer before my freshman year, I sent her an email introducing myself and she was quite impressed by my ambitions, especially becoming a “geographical engineer.” I couldn’t wait to meet her in person at my orientation. When orientation came and I finally got to meet her, I was in for a pleasant start to my college career. She assigned me and all of her other advisees a project in
I have always been a particularly musical person. When I was younger, I wanted to become a singer when I grew up, but upon joining the choir in elementary I realized I did not have the talent for singing that I thought I had. Continually singing off key and never sounding as good as my peers did, I decided to confine myself to singing at home where only my family could hear me. Despite this revelation that I was, in fact, a terrible singer, I still wanted to participate in some type of musical performance and decided to join the band in middle school. After trying out various different instruments, I settled on the flute and quickly fell in love.
Hank Aaron talked with Terence Moore for an article and he went on to say “As great as Jim Brown was, and as great as Michael Jordan was, and as great as anybody you 'd want to keep mentioning, I don 't know of anybody who was as great at his sport as this man is now (Moore).” Having a hall of famer like him breaking tons of records for his sport and even comparing him to the greatest basketball player ever says a lot about Tiger. The way golf ratings shot up the year he came to golf was unbelievable. Without him coming to this sport in 1998, it would still be the same boring sport it was a hundred years ago. When he started to play golf at a very young age, people knew that he was good. He was on the Mike Douglas show at the age of two for his golf skills.
From ages 10-12 i started cutting i just felt that when i cut it releases the pain from my life. i had friends that made my childhood better yes i did, but i forgot about them soon enough. my best friend was Ashley, she just made me smile everyday, the most surprising thing for me is that Ashley was beautiful like a model, she actually was a child model for a store and i was always there when she was on her photo shoots, we wanted to do it together but they said they had enough kid models but i didn't belive that, they didn't need an ugly chubby child like me, i still just kept cheering for Ashley every time. Every guy in 6th grade had a crush on her, they wanted her to date them but she said she would not date till she was old enough, and with the right person her "prince charming" i just wanted anyone to like me just anyone, i even had a phase where i changed how i looked like into wearing makeup from my mum's stuff, the teacher got concerned and called her in, this is where it started i thought my life was miserable, that everyone hated me, that no one understood how i felt, as you might have guessed my mum yelled at me and grounded me for a month. That, that was when i started building up anger in me every day, to get rid of some anger i cut.
When I was four or five, my best friend was into magic. She owned about six or seven different books and kits. She would always practice her tricks on me by putting on magic shows. Due to my adolescent mind, I actually thought she knew how to do magic and didn’t even think that it was just a slight of hand. Macbeth actually thought the witches’ prophecy or “magic” was legitimate.
I currently serve as the vice president of the organization, and in the marching band, I am the brass captain. So how will being an active member of the band contribute to my success at Penn State? The simplest answer is that being in the band proved to be the “key” in unlocking my drive to be something. Since the start of my freshman year of high school I worked so hard to be an excellent musician and to achieve a leadership position in the future years. As the years progressed, I managed to earn not one, but four leadership positions, and qualify to participate in many band festivals.
I did poorly in this assignment because I never had enough to get a full 100%. The first time I had a dead line it was a 50% the next time I got a little more but still it was a 55%. The third dead line (The one that I am talking about today) I got a 78.57% witch was a big jump in my grade and felt proud because I was getting better. If I had to do this assignment again, I would probably be more smart about it and start sooner. With the home learning I do in the other classes it got buried in that mess.
In my eighth grade year I was attending tournament held at Western Kentucky University. I won two of my three events and was debated when I got second in the other. I remember my mother saying to me, “Jack, you did so well today, yet you are not even excited about it. That really makes me sad, I thought my son would have much humility than that.” That right there… hurt. It was a true wake-up call of why I do speech and debate.
During the freshman year of high school, I noticed that there are monthly school events that take place during lunch time and so, I would always visit them and have a great time. An example of a popular school event would be Back to School Blast. At this event, students can play games, such as water dunk, sumo wrestling and watch live musical performances. As time passed, I always wondered who ran these events because they always turned out fantastic and it seemed very enjoyable to organize. At first, I thought it was a club so, I went around asking other students if they know how I can join it.
When I started high school, the club that excited me the most, was National Honors Society. So, at the first chance I got, in my sophomore year. After being a member for a year, I quickly realized that I wanted to take on a leadership opportunity in the club. So, I took a shot for the stars, and campaigned for being president of Honors Society. Though I had some competition, I put my all into composing a speech, and I won the presidency, and I have been president since.
Guard Brianna Butler averages 13.5 points and guard Brittney Sykes averages 10.2 for Syracuse. Forward Briana Day averages 11.8 points. The Orange have surprised many with their defense, which has earned them a spot in the finals. Syracuse has forced 106 turnovers by the opposition during its tournament run, while holding opponents to a field-goal percentage of .397. The Orange 's success from beyond the arc has been a key to their run.
The Smoove twins Chris and Jrue have played outstanding Trevon and Andre were playing good as well but Robert and Tyron weren 't playing that good so we needed one more good guy to make this team great... And I was that guy. We won every game but one without me, the one game we lost was to the Honeybadgers. The team we were playing in the championship. The Honeybadgers have never lost, they won every single game and every single championship since our league started in 1972. (You do the math because I 'm
Baseball Narrative Rough Draft I was so nervous for this morning’s competition. Today was the day that I had the chance to show to a judge what I had to offer into the heat of the KMEA Piano Kansas State Competition. The songs that I had practiced over from June to October were mere children’s play compared to others in the group who played pieces like Claire de Lune and the 12 Variations of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (no one in middle school with common sense would choose repertoire made for high schoolers). “Melody, make sure you go over the spots in your songs that you need to work on”, Mom said, shattering my thought process. “Okay, I’ll get to it in 10 minutes.” I look back at the mantle with the hard work and patience displayed along with the TV.
Through high school, I competed with some of the smartest kids in the district, being that we were a new school and one of the richest, pulling from certain areas and sections of neighborhoods. I also tried to diversify myself by joining and playing in the varsity band playing on my school’s football team and joining several clubs and association along the way. One that has affected me the most would be the engineering club at my High school. The Technical Student Association is at its core and joining of the vex robot team and this year the BEST or UIL robotic team it’s where I’ve had most of my growing as a person. With having, to compete mentally, but also interact personally with my teammates and other teams everyday helped mold me into who I am today.
