I feel grateful for the guidance and friendship that my advisors at Park have given me. While there are many things I hope my next advisor learns about me, and there are two important things I would like my Dana Hall advisor to know about me. Over the years, I have grown passionates for many different hobbies. I have always had a passion for arts and craft and I started doing more in second grade After a long day at school, I began to attend crocheting lessons as something fun and relaxing. At first, I didn 't think I would enjoy it, but after I completed my first project, a headband, I felt very proud of myself that I made a headband designed by me that I could wear.
All that hard work paid off by getting into her dream school. I also looked up to my dad as a role model because he was also a hard worker himself. My dad would wake up early every morning to workout at the YMCA. After working out at the YMCA, he would go to work until five or six o 'clock in the evening. When he had inventory at the end of each month, he would come home later at night,
As a senior at Little Falls High School, I truly believe my time here has brought me various opportunities to succeed and accomplish goals for not only myself, but my school and community as well. The opportunities given to the body of students at Little Falls stays true to the school 's mission statement: To be educationally affective and academically effective. Personally, all of my high school achievements, activities and future goals have and will continue to represent my experience at Little Falls. The most important thing a school can provide to its students is a quality education. Especially within Little Falls High School the tools that faculty, and even other students ensure provide an environment to which anyone can thrive.
Improvement is something that is always welcomed in my family, my parents taught me to believe that you can be great but there is always room to be better. From a young age that has been instilled into my head and I continue to believe in it. From taking JROTC, the program has helped me to improve a lot over the two years. I began this year with low rated decision making and time management skills, this quarter I have improved. While I have improved in other areas I got worse in my self-esteem.
West as well. He says that his family is together more because of school. His wife teaches music, musical theatre, and is the head volleyball coach. Both of his kids are in the elementary school at Southcrest as well. However, he is busier during the school year and has “to carve out time for family.” He says, “I was lucky for the opportunity to work with high school students and make an impact on their lives and have always enjoyed reading and writing.” Mr. West has learned many things, such as patience, from his students.
I always came earlier to watch them play and I remember how I dreamed of becoming as good as they was. In hindsight they probably weren’t that great but nevertheless they were role models for me. They always stopped to talk with us after their training giving that extra push. Then I found myself in their seat, now I was the apart of the older party in the story. Having the pesky early saturday morning practice with the younglings looking at us.
Many people love to talk about their accomplishments and what they have achieved in their lifetime, but as the saying always goes, “actions speak louder than words.” Growing up, starting in middle school, I was recognized on many occasions for various academic awards, excellence in citizenship, outstanding service, most valuable player, and the list could go on, but one of most meaningful leadership positions that I was chosen for, was not chosen by my teachers, but instead by my own classmates. My peers chose me to be a part of a group of special students called Peer Leaders. As seniors, we were chosen to guide, lead, and mentor the students of the freshman class in helping them make right decisions and basically forming special bonds with these students as they prepare for the next four years of their high school experience. It was an amazing opportunity that helped me realized for the first time what it meant to be a “teacher.” I was responsible for my group of kids and it was my hope and prayer that I would in some sense influence them just as my teachers and the people I looked up to had done for
Personally, I have a processing disorder and giving students the support I received is deeply important to me. Eye to Eye, quite simply, is the most fulfilling and meaningful extracurricular I am involved in. Sharing my LD experiences with younger students helps to empower a community of kids who are too often told they are not enough — not "smart" enough, "eloquent" enough, "strong" enough — and build a new generation of students who love their unique
On the threshold of my high school graduation, I had my heart set on studying Social Work, as being Vice President of Student Union of Chu Van An high school, I had always loved designing and organizing social activities and events . Nevertheless, as the highly competitive university entrance exams approached, my parents had other ideas for me. Since the world was still reeling from the global financial crisis of 2008-2009, they urged me to major in courses related to business, which were very promising majors at the time. As is customary in Vietnam, I followed my parents’ wishes, and in hindsight I am very glad that I did. In my freshman year, however, I struggled constantly having to meet the requirements of classes focused on Philosophy, Informatics and other general subjects which are supposedly irrelevant to my own major- Business English.
I’ve learned that my personal strengths come in the form of personal biases and self-awareness. Attempting to write about my personal strengths became a harder task to compete then I thought. I was able to form ideas on how I’m organized, so much so that I can organize the most chaotic things, I can bring order to a number of people’s lives at once. I’m an exceptional—straight A student; a published writer; I’ve managed to keep my job for 11 years; I was the youngest assistant manger my company had ever had; I find confidence in the worst of situations; I’m always able to see the brighter side to life; I can manage my emotions well—but are these really things to consider as personal strengths? Whereas they might be for some, they aren’t for me, they’re just mechanics that I’ve used to cope and mange to make it through life.
MESA is an organization I wish to join because math and science are my favorite subjects. Learning is valuable to me and I try to promote creativity into my work. I am an efficient student and if I joined MESA, I would hugely benefit from it. A profession involving math and science is definitely something I aspire for in my future and MESA is a smart way to assist in reaching that goal. I perform well on my classwork, tests, and quizzes.
I have had the pleasure of having Lucero as an Algebra II student and as a tutor/mentor for my younger students. I have watched her become an amazing young person over the last few years who values hard work, helping others and education. I have seen Lucero’s enthusiasm for helping others through education develop into a passion that drives her educational focus. She is an extraordinary young woman who has given so much of her time to better our Greeley Central community and our Greeley community. She is always looking for ways where she can help others become successful.
My life has been a struggle at times, but my hard work, self-confidence, and eternal passion for my education and my community will outstandingly prepare me to be a successful member of this community at East Carolina University.

These things include Advance Placement and Honors classes, clubs, and volunteering for different organizations. I am a hardworking and challenging student, who likes to take Advance Placement and Honors classes and challenge herself. I have taken 3 AP classes previously, and currently enrolled in 2 for senior year of high school.
