During my undergraduate career, I was employed two times while going to school. The first time, I was employed as a freshman. Having had financial difficulties within my family, I felt that it was necessary for me to work if I wanted to enjoy more of the college experience, such as going out to eat with friends and exploring the downtown scene. As I was walking to class one day, I was approached and asked if I wanted to be a model for Abercrombie and Fitch. Naturally, I was curious about the opportunity and so I was inclined to say yes.
Last year, I applied to be a Senior Ambassador and I was very excited to find out I was accepted into the program. Being a senior ambassador is a great experience. Starting high school is a very difficult time in any student’s life. No amount of preparing can prepare you for how different high school is than any school you have ever been in. A senior ambassador allows you to directly be a part in lending a hand to freshman.
In my junior year of high school, I did not think that the bags underneath my eyes could grow any darker. At the time, I was a member of Business Professionals of America, UIL, Student Council, SHAQ, and the National Honors Society. Not only this, but I was taking college courses, an AP course, and had friends and family to attend to. Every day was a new challenge for me. Although all of these comings and goings have a place in my heart, my biggest achievement was becoming class president and planning the 2015 prom.
At the beginning of every school year, the anticipation of who you 're stuck within a class grows and grows until the very first day of school. All summer everyone prays that they 're in a classroom with their friends, or at least with someone they know. Embarking on my senior year I was the least bit worried about having to make new friends. Because, taking AP classes throughout high school allowed me to always have class with the same group of people. The “Overachievers.” The “Nerds.” The “Geeks.” My friends.
With that, they gave him permission to repeat his first year over again. When Patton’s parents found out that he had to repeat his first year they did not scold him. They provided him with their support and a special tutor. The next year Patton was determined not to fail again. His determination and drive were more powerful than at any other point previously.
For example, every year we hold the Senior Sunset event and each year they held it on auditorium and I noticed that students began to get tired of the tradition because they didn’t have much to expect. For that reason, I, along with my officers, decided to make the event fun and turn it into a senior sunset/field day with plenty of activities on our football field and it turned out to be a huge success. Making senior week more engaging and original was also a major concern and I was happy to be a part of the change. In my research I noticed that the Student Foundation works on giving back to university in which to benefit the students and I have experience with this type of work which can help make the foundation more effective in its
When I first saw that ACA-122 was a required course to complete your Associate in Arts degree, I thought it was an unnecessary course to have to take. What else could I possibly learn about College Transfer Success at the end of my degree? To my surprise, as I come to the end of ACA-122 class, I find myself to be a more prepared student and future employee. I wish I had taken this course during my first semester at Guilford Technical Community College. The self-assessment tests we had to take at the beginning of the semester reassured me that I was on the right path academically and career wise.
Classes in college have been a slight change from classes in high school, which I had expected. The one thing I did not expect was how independent I was going to have to be in my classes. In high school, teachers were extremely helpful in telling you what you needed to do to succeed. I have learned that in college I am going to have to decide what I need to do to succeed. Over the past month, I have slowly been figuring out what I am going to need to do to succeed in each individual class.
I was fascinated into entertainment and movies at this time and I started to have a dream to go to Hollywood and work in a film studio, and give a dream to other people like I had given from films. My senior year of high school was the second important time in my life. I directed a school play. I wrote a screenplay by myself, and casted my classmates into roles. Also, I managed all budgets for the play and made some costumes and so on.
My baritone student made the band, one of my French horns made an alternate seat, and one of my trumpets made an alternate seat. I was extremely proud of them for making it even though I still did not make district. That week was the week I also decided I wanted to become a band director because watching the kids progress with my help and listen so intently to my advice and need my help and support made me feel really good. This year is my final year to try out for district and I am going to give it my all again with the highest hopes of making it, but I am also going to try my hardest to help the freshman in my section again to make it and help anyone else who wants or needs help with audition
Assisting students with resumes, which, is awesome, as I don’t know how to make a resume. The mock interviews are a great asset for students because some may have never been in a job interview there entire life so that is something great to run through and practice and at the end of your time at northern the help you find employment through career fairs and searches but if you don’t find something before you leave northern as an alumni you will have use of the career center whenever you need
Because I am not from Alabama, I knew that this program was going to be an excellent way to get involved and meet people in a smaller setting before classes start – but I never expected the impact that the people I met this week would have had on me. Whether it was the amazing student leaders or the freshman in my project group at Taylorville, I met some of the most genuine people in my life and they really helped to solidify my view of this school and made me feel like I belong here, like I’m home. It wasn’t just the fact that we spent a majority of this past week together that made us connect, but it was our drive to
If you have ever used the statement, "They were doing it too" or "He made me do it" then you are wrong because as this quote says, you make your own decisions even if you are trying to impress your friends. Make your friends want to impress you in the right way. My school years have been filled with those statements and I still use them to this very day. Although everyone has had that moment when they blamed their wrongs on someone else they still have very interesting and happy memories. I am excited to share with you my 2nd and 3rd grade years.
I won second place in broadcasting at regions and advanced to state semi-finals in both broadcasting and storytelling. Utilizing my love of performing, I started auditioning for high school productions at twelve years old. Since then, I have been a part of many plays and have scored various main roles, then having the capability of joining the Thespian Society. Going to Morehead State University as just a Junior in high school opens doors not only for my aspirations of becoming a researcher, but expands the opportunities to apply my talents to make the Academy
Osvaldo Sandoval second semester glpo My second semester was a great year my grades didn 't start off too well but eventually I got all my stuff together and made one heck of a comeback. I started off with a gpa that I wasn 't proud of but I ended with a lot higher of grades. I realised that many things contributed to this and one was the history project we did about ww2. It involved me and a group of my classmates to study someone who was part of world war 2. We got US and even though I didn 't like my teammates the most we ended up doing a pretty good project.
