My journey consisted of many good and bad times, and throughout the years I discovered my strengths and weaknesses. I made new friends, took on different tests, accomplished many things. My first year was my most difficult, being new to the school, but as the years went by, school became a more fun experience for me. Knowing that the 4 years of high school was a journey for me, I was able to brace myself for the difficult times to come and the rewards I was going to receive. At the end of the journey, I had gained a lot from these 4 years, but it also prepared me for my next journey, my journey through university.
My friend's family from elementary school have me an opportunity to live with them. My grades averaged out to a C which allowed me to see my junior year in high school. My hopes of becoming a senior and finishing high school were fading fast, I knew I would not make it. But, I managed to see my first and only group home. I needed to free myself of any street activities in order to prosper.
How I Graduated High School Have you ever procrastinated for so long that it finally caught up to you? Well that was the story of my life in my senior year of high school. To me, high school wasn’t about learning and doing school work, it was more about hanging out with friends and living a life of leisure and free time. Needless to say, by the end of my sophomore year, everything changed and I learned things the hard way. Getting your responsibilities out of the way, and taken care of is always better done soon rather than later.
By the time I entered middle school, I had greatly improved my English speaking, reading, and writing. I learned to embrace my accent, and take pride in my Hispanic heritage. I still can't believe how much I have grown as a person in the last 9 years. The struggles that I endured growing up, strengthened and prepared me for the future challenges I am yet to face. I will be a first-generation college student next fall, and I know that I will be successful because I have always been able to overcome the obstacles I face.
They say that high school is not necessarily the best four years of your life, and I agree. However, I believe that it is a place for unique growth and development–both of which are factors in finding the best in ourselves. With all of this said, I can say that entering Miriam College High School has definitely and ultimately transformed me to become the intellectually and spiritually focused woman I am today. In my own journey, there are three stages in high school: the first few days, the bulk of the school year and the last few days. For each stage, I encounter the same emotions and values annually.
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
For the next two semesters, I worked hard and brought my GPA above a 3.0 which helped me regain my scholarship. This ties into my personal history because according to philosopher George Santayana, “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.” Now that I know what happens when I do not put in work and what happens when I put in work, I know better now and will always keep it in the back of my mind that even when the going gets tough, I have already had my one mistake and it only gets better from here onward. Also, this gives the admission committee something to always hold me to because knowing a person’s personal history is an indicator for future behavior and
These classes were all challenging, yet I pushed through with determination to complete the classes to the best of my ability. My high school is highly competitive and I’m grateful that I was surrounded by such wonderful peers and teachers. Completing high school, I received 12th place out of almost 450 students, with a weighted GPA of 4.244. Despite my hard course load,
During freshman year, I will get involved in multiple activities and work hard in all my classes. As a highschool student, I will complete all 4 years with good grades and be apart of many events. All these commitments are important because they help me succeed and have fun in my 4 years of high
That was the first month in my high school, in a Language and Arts class. Our English teacher Mr. Peterson let us read an eight pages article and wrote three paragraphs journal about our opinions. It was easy for my classmates because they were all Americans, but it was hard for me. I was the only one who cannot finish that in-class assignment, so I just
”It was very shocking, but it gradually became more comfortable.” “I’m pretty comfortable,” said Ellison Girod, another student optimistically beginning her first year at Conifer. ”I know a few teachers already and I really like it here, so it’s a lot easier. It seems a lot better than middle school and I feel like [the school year] is going to go well.” Skirting the Commons are teachers, waiting excitedly with large, welcoming smiles as they watch their new pupils fill the commons. Just like the Freshman, many of these teachers are nervous to start their first year at Conifer High School; to teach their new students; to make an impression. “This will be my first year with Conifer; my second year teaching,” said John Shipley, the newest member to Conifer High’s athletics department.
Through my four years of high school by being in clubs, sports, and other activities I have had many great high school experiences but my most valuable experience i have experienced in high school has to be becoming a peer assistant for students with disabilities my senior year. The first day of becoming a peer assistant really changed my life. During the end of the junior year i was trying to figure out what it was i wanted to study in college that has to do with helping children and by the end of the first week of becoming a peer assistant i knew exactly what i wanted to do. As a peer assistant I help the students with disabilities with their daily school jobs such as helping take down the flags, putting out bus signs, fill up paper for
