I along with my family moved to Canada in 2004, this was the biggest and happiest day of my life. I had great expectations for my future; since living in Pakistan, I understood that Canada was a land of opportunity. Unfortunately, due to the earthquake in Pakistan on October 8th , 2005, we had to move back to Pakistan since we had lost members of our family as well. The move back to Pakistan at that devastating time was very hard for myself and my family. My father enrolled me to a school in Pakistan since we were going to live there now. The school system in Pakistan just did not seem right anymore, I missed my school in Canada which I had attended for just a year. I struggled to live in Pakistan for three years and in 2008, my mother decided
A member in my family has an illness, not like most illnesses that come to mind, such as cancer or other diseases. This illness affects my family 's lives. Most people don´t understand how it can affect others, but it does affect like how most sicknesses do. Many people suffer from this illness. This illness is called alcoholism.
As I begin my college education, I want to continue doing my best in order to accomplish my goal of becoming a registered nurse. With the scholarship money I can have the peace of mind of solemnly focusing on college. Students who have to work to continue their education have trouble focusing on school and do not have the extra time to study or go to tutoring sessions. In many cases, having to work while attending college usually leads to failing or dropping the class due to extra stress and the idea of income. As well, this scholarship will give me more time to focus on my education and to continue my volunteer work helping the
I quickly finished tying my shoe and hopped onto my purple mountain bike and we were off. Logan my brother who I love sometimes,Cassie My best friend, Easton Cassie’s brother,Sawyer Cassie’s brother, Mr. Wychers and I were going to ride our bikes through a trail off in the woods and go to Whistle stop and then cut through town and head to Houseman's. The sky was cloudy and the daylight was being blocked by a thick dark cloud, which looked a lot like a rain cloud.
I stared into the dark sky, taking a deep breath. “Tonight...tonight.” I breathed out loud. This past week i’ve felt jittery inside my stomach, holding back the smile i’ve wanted to show. Tomorrow was the day it all happened. I held my legs to my chest and thought about all the good things that could happen.
Opportunities like this scholarship only come in a lifetime, so being able to partake in it, is such an honor. I truly contemplate that I’m qualified for this scholarship because of my past academic accomplishments and flexible upcoming goals.
It happened on June 11, 2015. My lacrosse team won our regional quarter final game the previous day—I scored my personal best of five goals and was named Player of the Game. As a reward for the win, my coach gave us a three hour practice the next day that was strictly conditioning—leaving the seniors 30 minutes to go home, shower, change, and drive to our Senior Dinner at Bowdoin College. I raced home from practice, my sweat sticking to the car leather seats, music blasting, and the wind in my hair. I had the future on my mind: playoffs, graduation, summer, and college. I took an ice cold shower and threw on a dress, making my way to Bowdoin 15 minutes late (and still sweating). I went through the motions of the Senior Dinner that night: I
This will help me complete my prerequisites and also help me learn all about what I need to know to have my dream career. I believe that I deserve this scholarship because I am hard-working and dedicated. I will graduate high school a semester early with all my credits and a 3.6 GPA. I have worked since the summer I turned 15, and now during my senior year, I hold two part time jobs adding up to about 30-40 hours a week while still going to highschool full time. I have also held many leadership positions throughout my high school years. Being the executive secretary my freshman year, class secretary my sophomore year, and class vice president my junior year as well as being involved with Friends of Rachel and FCCLA clubs has taught me how to be dedicated and handle many tasks at once. Throughout high school, there have been very few days where I have been able to just go home after school. I am always very busy, and I have learned how to manage my time well, meaning that I can handle many things thrown my way. The money granted to me would not be
Getting chosen to get this scholarship will me get more motivated to attend a 4 year college, and it will also help my parents. Due to living in a low income family, college can be very difficult. I come from a family where, we do struggle at times. Getting this scholarship will be an honor and will save my family and I money. My family is very supportive towards my career goals, which is to become a Register Nurse so I can help people around the world, and one day make an organization to help people whom also struggle. Helping others will make myself proud as well, because I know how it feels to have moments where people struggle and sometimes it’s hard to move on from all the struggles, but in life you have to stay motivated through the hardest
"Sometimes we need someone to simply be there. Not to fix anything, or to do anything in particular, but just to let us feel that we are cared for and supported."
Here it is the day before the biggest game of the biggest game of the season; the coach had us practicing for three hours straight with not water break might I add. After three long and tiring hours of running the same play schemes continuously, coach D decided to call practice. Tomorrow being the biggest game of the season the team decided to stay and shoot around. After about thirty minutes of just shooting the team decided to play a game of around the world. I was winning because I was one of the best shooters on the team, but on the last shot of the game the worst thing happened. I jumped into the air and landed on my ankle at the same time, being the starting three point shooter the team freaked out. My best friend drove me home and as
Boom,the ball went flying. All my life I have loved and will always love baseball.I started playing when I was two years old. Ever since I 've been playing I have always wanted to do two things, hit a grandslam and rop a home run hit. “Today is the day,” is what I keep saying to myself. Today I will do the two things I wanted to do my whole entire life.
Sweat was dripping down my face, you could feel the tension in the air as both teams seemed to stare each other down. The game was drawing to a close as we set up our offense a couple more times. These last few plays would determine the game.
I really couldn't speculate on what other people are playing. I enjoy role playing games such as Zelda, my favorite all time game would be Diablo. I was so excited when they finally came out with Diablo 3. The kids like allot of different games which they play on the phone, computer, game system, also a small video game system they have which is called a 2 Ds. If I were to guess I would have to say role playing games would be the
The lamp posts cast themselves like trees on the narrow path. The enormous white arch introduces itself first and then allows the plentiful of the structures behind it to shine under the restless night. Thinking back to twelve years ago and how these same buildings gave a sense of confusion and utter seclusion for the world. I had to learn the rules and then I had to perform my best, it was like a ritual only every time I performed I got better at it.
