My proudest achievement would be getting into Cumberland International Early College and making it oy my senior year. The three years I have spent at Cumberland International have been very difficult because of many reasons such as being on the campus of Fayetteville State University, taking almost two years of high school in only two semesters, and being pushed to excel from the beginning in order to prepare to take full level college courses by our tenth grade year. Although I struggled during my time at CIECHS it was a truly amazing opportunity to be accepted as the third graduating class of its time. Being at a school that had only been running for two full years has both positive and negative aspects. We were changing the curriculum
This was quite a feat for a 20 year old young man from Buchannan County Virginia. The next step was training on job with a Trooper and then I was off to the Virginia State Police Academy for intense training for a 36 week period. I graduated from the academy in 1991 at the age of 21.
During my last three years of college career, I have encountered not exactly the same but few similar questions about evaluating myself. Though I know what I am capable of more than anybody else, it is not easy to judge myself where I stand. In 2012, I came from Ethiopia right out of high school, and by the time I arrived in the US, my English writing and speaking skills were very poor. I came here to attend a college, so I studied English grammar, writing and reading books for one full month and I took the non-native placement test at Montgomery College.

Michael and Caren was dating 1 year and Michael proposed to Caren halftime of a Murray State basketball game.
As I end my sophomore year at Old Dominion University I think about all that I have accomplished in the past two years. I think about traveling to Peru and volunteering at an Hogar and Hospital as a Freshmen, Becoming Co-President of the Women’s ministry for ODU’s Catholic Campus Ministry, and to working hard and receiving good grades in all my classes. Not only do I think about all the work that I have done so far but I also think about my family and all the sacrifices they have made for me. I think about my parents waking up early every day to go to work just so we could have food on the table and a roof over our heads.
I then spoke with Dr. Shawn Williams and he gave me enlighten. He told me about the different jobs and how flexible this major was. The only problem I was facing was to choose clinical or management. I figured out then a year later to choose management. I still found myself struggling taking chemistry and biology.
After graduating from MHS, the next challenge in my mission to ascend from my circumstances was to become the best student at The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State). With consideration of my mother not graduating high school, it was imperative and self- driving that I reward her sacrifices by excelling in my academic career. Eager to outperform, consequently, I earned the Smeal Merit Diversity Scholarship for three consecutive years (Freshmen-Junior) at Penn State. This prestigious scholarship is only awarded to the top five minority business students at Penn State. In addition to my academic successes, I became very active on campus and served as a leader at the top of four different campus-organizations.
I am Juwan Clayton, a current sophomore and this is my second financial aid appeal letter, since attending Lock Haven University. When first coming to Lock Haven, things we 're difficult, a lot have change since then. I have made large strides in improving my intellect, habits, character since my last financial aid appeal. My Satisfactory Academic Progress have been progressing but at a normal student pace, I believe it will take one more semester to finally even out. So I do ask that all committee members who are reading my appeal letter, please keep a open mind and try to understand my reason for writing to you.
5 years had passed since the whole Jessica Feeney thing. We 've elected a new (real) president, I 've become better friends with Courtney, and I 'm finishing my last year at high school. I plan on going to college to be a general surgeon despite hearing all those stories from Jeff. Jeff was liar right? I mean, now that I 've finished 4 years of grueling high school I know the smart people words for what Jeff and my 7th grade class did to Jessica.
However, loss had again followed me and I was again unsuccessful in attaining victory. Nonetheless, I was given a second chance by the ASB advisor who gave me the opportunity to be interviewed for a spot in student government. Over the course of the next three years, I ended up climbing the ladder and was voted in as our school’s education commissioner and secretary. These positions helped me better the interactions I had with other people and helped me understand the gravity of what it meant to lead other people. Being in charge of events such as “Big Sunday” and the Teacher Appreciation Breakfast taught me how to take the reins and guide a group of people to host a successful
Maria is my boss at the counseling center and has been for three years now. I work under her as a sexual assault peer educator. I have weekly meetings with her and work with her when planning certain events that the SAPES may be doing throughout the semester such as the sex positive event that was held last spring. I have gotten to know Maria fairly well, making this interview feel like just another one of our weekly meetings.
The classes I am taking this summer will be last required classes before I start my internship with UAF School of Education this fall. I pride myself of being hardworking student and because of this I am starting my internship one year than what was previously estimated. Financial difficulties will make it extremely hard for me to afford taking two classes during the UAF Summer Session. I have shown that I am dedicated student who will takes her college classes very seriously. I started my college career almost sixteen years ago, and returned several years ago to finish what I had started.
I continued to press forward, completing my sophomore class president speech weeks ahead of time and even laminating it several days before speech day in an effort to present myself in a professional light. Unfortunately, despite my copious preparation, I lost again. Devastated, I refused to speak to the new class president for about a week following the results; however, I eventually re-befriended the latter and vicariously threw myself into preparing for the following year’s
a year ago, I was in high school working towards accomplishing my long-term goal of graduating high school with honors and a maintaining a high GPA. After years of striving for my goals I graduated top of my class, was accepted to the colleges I applied, and I was awarded with a few scholarships that helped me pay for all my college tuition. Going into my freshmen year of college I felt proud that I honor the chance to continue my education because no one in my family had ever attended college. As time was approaching for me to begin my journey as a freshmen, it was time to begin the next goals. The most important long term goal for me was to pass all my classes with an A
Samuel Seium. The summer after I finished high school, my first job was at Macy’s because I knew that they would give me the flexibility to come back during the winter and summer breaks from college. My father said that he knew someone that worked there that could get me hired. I attended Virginia State University (VSU) to study Criminal Justice because I was considering being a lawyer or working with teenagers. I learned about this school from a tour that my high school provided and I liked it because it was close to home and had a lot of history.
