This is always my preference – to get the most challenging part of school finished as early as possible. In my opinion, I was already in the best possible situation. The directors in his year spoke positively of him and our brief conversations had been extremely pleasant. I had heard rumors that Misha had wanted to hire a different stage manager, so part of me worried that Misha might not be completely satisfied with my assignment to his production. Yet, I was in an overall good place, excited to begin a new stage in my education: the thesis
As a result, when she returned to Hong Kong a few months ago, I was exhilarated. Wanting to show her all the local great finds I have tried in the past year, I actively invited her to go out with me, perhaps a little too much. My friend did not consent to my every invitation, yet it was of a small issue and did not affect our friendship, though secretly I wished we could go out more often. The quarrel worthy of notice and evaluation occurred a few weeks ago. Originally, I had to work on weekdays.
As a single mom of three, who began her college career without definite purpose, other than wanting to prove myself to my siblings and have a better life for my children. I never thought I would be submitting a personal statement to receive a Master’s Degree. Understanding human behavior is an inevitable part of life for nearly everyone, and for me the desire to discover this further has been an unavoidable part of mine. The ways in which people behave and the reasons behind this behavior has fascinated me from an early age, and as I have grown older this fascination has also grown. Through studying psychology, I’m excited to have the opportunity develop this curiosity and expand my understanding into the study of human behavior in an academic setting.
My journey of reading and writing throughout my life is one started during my childhood in elementary school. Even though reading and writing have been a struggle for myself, I am still continuing to try to increase my reading and writing levels. As a child, I had difficulty in reading. Because of this, the school required extra classes for reading. It was not until my senior year in high school that I wrote my first thesis paper.
I was so nervous and afraid of failing that I will stop my exam for a few minutes to just focus again. When I got my final report card I discovered that I passed each final exam and I was so thrilled. The next year in 11th grade, I worked hard from the start and achieved really high grades and knew that if I wanted something I had to work hard for
Last year my essay on equality was chosen to represent the school in a district wide contest and won first place.Yet my proudest accomplishment has been the gradual yet astounding results I have seen in our mentoring initiative. We have established a bond with all of our students, discussing more than academics but their personal and social concerns that impact their academic success.A large percent of our eighth grade students have applied to magnet and early college programs. Though we in no way claim responsibility, I believe our program gave them the confidence to take the chance .We were able to expand from a small group of people who saw and issue and hoped to help, to a diverse group of students using their combined skills to make an impact.This experience revealed my genuine passion leading and helping others, working from grassroots to making change. In the future I will expand upon what I have learned thus far continuing to address the issue of education equality and pursue my personal
Reflecting back I don’t think there’s a single thing I’d change, from the very few bad times, to all the great times of laughter and pure awesomeness. High school has been fun, and I am going to miss it, but although my time at Skyview is over, it is only up to me if the fun never ends. I’ll miss the sports, winning a state championship, going to class and all the inside jokes, playing sports that I’ve never played before and making new friends with all sorts of amazing people. But most of all I’ll probably miss my friends, and all the weird stuff they say and do and how awesome they make every moment that would otherwise be not nearly as cool. Yes, I will miss them.
I have never been one of those kids who fancied education from a tender age. I loved playing around and having fun with friends. My first day in school was among the worst days of my life. To me, I felt like my parents did not want me around them and so they had to shove in one of the daycares around. I had no option but to get used to the new environment and people as well.
I had always wondered how it must feel to have friends that care so much, they would drop everything just to come and help you. However, after months of searching my three best friends showed me what true friendship was. One of the most important male figures in my life taught me that what is yours will find you and that life gets a lot more beautiful when you start living for yourself. This really helped to shape me into the person that I am today because I no longer seek approval from anyone but myself. That piece of advice is what made the last two years of my high school career nothing short of
I want to play for Mitty and be part of the Mitty heritage of camaraderie and success. I know several people that have graduated from Mitty and they all have nothing but great experiences from their high school years. Those people were confident and grounded. When I went to shadow at Mitty on December 2nd, the people there were so nice and friendly, which made me feel like I was a part of
My grades and behavior were the main reasons I was on the border of not graduating. I was so focused on others that I never realized I let myself go. Graduating eighth grade helped prove to myself that I was not a failure and every step I took was only closer to being successful. Graduation year came faster than ever, I started to lose my outstanding grades and started to feel satisfied with low percentages as long as I was passing. It was my last year and all I wanted to do was have fun.
