The most beautiful thing I have seen is Hemlock Cliffs. I love going there in the summer and winter because it is always beautiful to go explore and find new caves, waterfalls, and paths. In the summer if you go there, there are many sites to see and adventure in! My dad and I are the only ones who usually go, so we don’t go in many caves, but when we do, they are amazing! Hemlock Cliffs has many paths to venture off in, so you want to stay with an adult the whole time.
Without a doubt attending North Carolina Governor 's School West has had the greatest impact on my thinking. I was privileged to join a few hundred of the brightest minds of my age in Winston-Salem, North Carolina for a six week experience away from outside influence. This immersion was especially life altering because of how open-minded everyone was to new perspectives. This truly created an environment of learning and expression in addition to being a major liberation from my everyday life as I had to be truly independent while on Salem College’s campus. I attended as a choral ensemble student, but was able to experience so much more in addition to choir.
There was water shooting and pouring from every direction I could see from. The names of these attractions were called Treasure Island and Lil’ Kahuna Waterworks. It had many mini slides that were thrilling in a way. Winnie and I did an obstacle that was impossible for most of us. Lily-pad like floating objects that was tied to a metal chain at the bottom of the pool.
His name was James. We always stood for each other and we never let each other down. After living together in the same house for so long, we accidently came up with an idea that we should start our own business together. It was pretty much a good idea so we started thinking of what to do.
Warm, sunny Destin is like Heaven on earth. This last summer I got a chance to visit Destin for summer vacation. Yes, the 16 hour drive was not super fun, but it was TOTALLY worth it in the end. I had a ton of fun. We spent most days relaxing on the beach, but we also went to this huge amusement park called the track.
My Mom and I spent four days canoeing in the lakes,camping in our tents and swimming in the river . We took all of our clothes,food and tents with us. We had to tie our food at the top of a tree and pull it up with a rope because bears would eat our food if it was too close to the ground. We also had plastic containers called “ Bear Barrels” that are supposed to be bear resistant . I went swimming in the water
I didn't let the fear get me though, I played and gave it my all. After the game ended, I was ecstatic. Now I'm on my third year of playing water polo and I have no regrets. Not only am I playing a sport I love, but I've made life long friends with all my teammates.
They knew he did not have a father, or his family did not have any money. It was never spoken of until one particular Thursday when the teacher went around the classroom, and asked each individual how much would their daddy be giving to the Community Chest. She asked everyone except for Gregory, and I am most certain that he was ashamed at that point. You can tell in his reaction, “What is it now? You forgot me?”
I would work at Little Lake and on the weekends the students would sit outside relaxing and listening to music from Lisa Magee portable 8-track player. The generosity of the staff and how they loved us was a big deal to me. Uncle Paul (The cook) had so much trust in my
After browsing the University website, my mother and I knew we had to visit. We attended an ACCESS event last fall and like the leaves fell to the ground, I fell in love. All of the students were so kind and welcoming, and they all seemed very dedicated to their walks with Christ. Over the course of the few
I am truly grateful for my experiences at Rutgers. Not only have I been able to meet and build close relationships with a variety of people from different backgrounds, but I also met people from my own background which I don’t often do. I think what amazes me the most is how much I can relate to my friends who are of a different background than me. It is great feeling being able to relate to one another through personal experiences despite the difference in how we were raised up and our practices at home. However, what I appreciate the most is those very differences in our cultures because it great opportunity for me and a friend to learn from one another.
Allow me to introduce myself, I am Bryan Le, a freshman that is currently attending a charter school by the name of “Downtown College Prep”. I am currently living with my parents and two younger siblings, one brother and one sister. Over my years in a public elementary school, I had seen others being happy because of one’s help and that made me feel happy inside. I then thought of ways to help others when I stumbled upon the fact that doctors help people everyday, which seemed as a great way to help many people so that they may continue to be happy in life. As I entered Downtown College Prep, I was urged by the staff to explore my options and to set a goal in life.
All my life I have lived in the small town of Walkertown, which is only about twenty minutes away from Winston-Salem. Five years ago Walkertown was small and you had to go to the next town over, Kernersville, if you wanted to go shopping for clothes or go out for dinner. Now, Walkertown is a lot more developed and less rural. However, it is nowhere near as developed as Winston-Salem, especially downtown. Winston-Salem is a built up city with a lot of impervious surfaces.
