My “supernatural aid” would come from all my teachers educating me so I am able to get into college and my parents who constantly remind and push me towards my goal. My “threshold would most likely be the transfer of my sophomore year of high school into my junior year. At this point in my life, I am slowly becoming an adult and taking on more responsibilities and starting to make larger life decisions. At this point in my life, I am passing into what will be some of the most important years of my life. My “threshold guardian: was most likely myself and my fears.
I definitely had some preferences on the books that we read this semester. An example of this is Laramie Project, I didn’t like the start of the book at all and then once it got going I ended up enjoying it a little bit more. Usually classes in high school involve skills that wont be used later in life but this class helped develop skills I will use. I saw this as a set up class for real life situations. It prepares you to be informed in a controversy like gay rights or learning about communities you didn’t know about
I attended college right after college because I wanted to add to what I’ve already learned in high school. Also I knew what I wanted to do and be in life. The things that was taught in high school was still be fresh to me. I was one of the fortune students who qualified for TOPS and federal grants to pay for my pricy tuition. I think if I would have had to pay out of pocket for tuition, I would have been one of those who would have set out for a while before attending.
Personal Narrative Essay Believe it or not, sometimes a gracious action can bring a huge influence on a person. When I read the introduction that instructor Heller wrote, there is a sentence she wrote: “Sometimes the most influential moments in our lives are smaller moments, events that we may not recognize as influential until years after the experience.” For some reason, I related to it strongly. My story is about my high school experience. Also, I will share some significant moments in my life, and how these smaller moments changed my personality. Let’s go back to five years ago.
When I was in MacCracken middle school, I always wondered what it would be like when I went to Spartanburg high. I kind of wished someone would have told me what high school would be like. Now that I have been here for a year and a half, it is not that hard. I have managed to learn not only a lot in class but also a lot about Spartanburg High School and its people. Friendships and reasonability are areas that I think students in the eighth- grade student should know before they arrive.
I had to come with the understanding that junior high is the next big step in school and this is where you start seeing your social clicks like your jocks the gothic kids. Sometimes I didn’t understand why they had there own clicks, but I had to start thinking and put myself in there shoes because I didn’t understand why they were different from me. Now in my everyday life as a highschooler I still use that lesson that I learned so long ago. Even as I get older I may not understand always understand why some people people act different but I can do my best by not judging and putting myself into their shoes. This was one of my most valuable lessons that my parents have handed down to me and I call it as “wisdom that granted over time” because it has take years for me to understand and be really open minded that the world can be a very different place for some
High School, currently I am a senior at Kealakehe High School and have been going to this school for the past 4 years of my high school education , honestly I like to think of myself as a hardworking lain back kind of person, when I am hardworking when I need to and chill and relaxed when I have no other things I have to do, Though my experience in high school I have learned stuff the lame and hard way by my laid back attitude in my first 2 years and have been using more of my hardworking side to catch up on credits in my last 2 years of high school. One of my strengths as of now is striving and persisting by hard work and actually taking time out of my free time to actually do my school work and study, though I may not do every single piece of work given to me, well that wasn't always my strengths in high school, cause I personally had
Middle school is a very different time, a time to start discovering yourself. Many people figure out what makes them truly happy, or what they want to do with their life during this time. It’s also the road to high school, the last stop of your standard American education. As a middle school graduate, I’ve dealt with all the ups and downs, all the A+’s and the C-’s, all the old and new friends, and all the choosing of classes. Electives are the time to have something you enjoy in school, to pick what makes you happy, but also what will help you later.
I am able to come up with solutions to problems and take initiative on a task, provide community service, positive advice and encouragement to my fellow friends and classmates. Also Golden Door seeks out intellectually curious students who are committed to developing their talents for lives of leadership and service, I can say that I have these characteristics. Even though I did not attend College after my High School graduation, I did not give up on my dreams. It actually took me to years to be part of Guilford College, over those two years I felt lost falling into an endless abyss but continue to reach out to Colleges asking in what ways they could help me to make College affordable. I applied to many scholarships, Es El Momento, North Carolina Hispanic College Fund, Hispanic Scholarship Fund, Etc.
During my time in high school, I would get Bs and Cs, but now at Brookdale, I am getting grades I could only dream of and also enjoy learning athte same time. For example, the ALP was tough at first but during all the journals, the freewrites, and the essays were really were not so bad and they were easier because I paid attention to my professor on writing better and to make my emotions on paper,. To summarize how Brookdale was a good choice for me was I met good people, the courses, less money to spend, has a great hands on learning experience, and getting good grades. For all the new students in the ALP, learn and enjoy being in that program because that program really helped me learn two English courses in one semester so that
It would be remiss of me to try and write about the adversities I have faced as a high school student attending Blythewood High School, without first reflecting on the many blessings I have been awarded. I attend a wonderful school with some of the best teachers in South Carolina who provide quality education and the tools that I must use to succeed in any field of life. I was also fortunate enough to grow up in a nuclear household with two educated parents who were able to help me with anything that I lacked in, whether that may be hiring a tutor for me or sitting at the kitchen table late at night to help me finish my homework. The adversities that I have faced are miniscule in comparison to some of the students that I sit right next to in class, but I have had my share of difficulties too. I remember starting my freshman year at Blythewood High School thinking about all the changes that I would have to face, transitioning from Kelly Mill Middle School to this large campus in this little town of Blythewood.
I really enjoyed the way this book was written, it was written in a way that Native Americans have been known to teach each other. They pass their knowledge down to their children through their stories. It was like sitting down with a grandparent and hearing their story of the war. I first picked this book up because the Navaho Indians were mentioned in my AP History class, but because of the time frame we had before the test was taken they were only briefly mentioned. This book grabbed my attention because of the topic and that the main characters point of view didn’t just start with the war it explained his background and why he is the type of person he became.
I love staying after school and talking with my teachers at high school may be the only opportunity I have to do so. I would discuss anything; Things I don 't understand, ideas and thoughts I have, and positions I had on certain issues. Almost every time, I 'd walk away just thinking for a long while on the bus right home about whatever I had talked about. Physical science and computer science happened to be that topic most of the time. I feel it was necessary and worthwhile, because most of what you learn isn 't in the school curriculum.
After trying for many years to get better grades with little to no success, I gave up on trying and just accepted whatever grade I ended up with. When I got into middle school and started taking classes like Algebra 1 and Spanish that would count for high school credit, it became very apparent to me that the grades that I get in these classes could very easily affect my high school GPA and my ability to get into a college of my choice. It was this realization that pushed me to further improve myself and my better being. During the seventh grade I got diagnosed with ADHD and started a medication regiment that significantly helped me focus and understand the lessons that my teachers were teaching. All of this was great and my grades did significantly improve, but the cons
