Personal Reflection By the time i'm 30 years old I aspire to have a family, a wife, a nice home and a respectable career that I can support my family with, here is my plan to achieve those goals. When I graduate Hidden Valley High School this June I'm going to start packing my bags and I plan to be moved up to Bend, Oregon by early August. I will be living with my generous grandparents who are allowing me to live in their home for free, but of course i'll help out with bills here and there and pay for groceries every now and again. Ill be moved into my grandparents house early August so that will give me enough time to find a stable job to help me out with my electrical apprenticeship and hopes of finding an apartment for a later time. Once i'm enrolled in Central Oregon Community College (COCC) I will begin my 4 year apprenticeship program starting in September.
On the other hand, I think it was great to have the experience as long as it made me more money. In the beginning, I started working when I was 17 years old. I worked at a retail store in Bloomfield, New Jersey after school and on the weekend. I began working at an early age because I want to stand on my own feet and I do not want to rely on my family. In the essay “Working at Wendy’s,” Joey Franklin states, “I only applied here because I knew I would get hired, says Sara the first night I work with her.” This situation related to my experience when I am hunting the job.
My parents had always regarded career as doctors to be of higher social and economic status, and they have passed on these "values" to me also since I was a child. Buy my life did not turn out as what they had expected, as I became a single mother of three children when I was just 24. I decided to complete my college and adopted the mindset of an over achiever and decided to become a major in biology to complete my bachelor’s degree which could be accepted in a prestigious medical school. Managing the school along with my growing family had become very difficult. Eventually, I had to drop out after a period of 3 years.
Originally, I had to work on weekdays. However, due to the clashing with my summer course schedule, I had to give up on a few days of my work in order to attend the lectures. Seeing as my friend was desperately looking for a job, I introduced her to my boss and applied for her to become my replacement while I study. She eagerly accepted. On the eve of her first day of work, I
My dad had signed me up for a class for my grade in order to get ahead in regular school, but after twenty minutes, it was pretty clear that I had already went through this material during school. So, after an agonizing twenty minutes of receiving compliments by strangers about completing the pretest after five minutes and having the teacher call me to the front to demonstrate long division, while she went to have a conversation with the principal about what to do with me, they decided to put me in a class that had both fourth and fifth graders. Right now, I was
For something else, something more. I wanted the two story house, the white picket fence I saw in the TV, in the story books. It was a dream not to be achieved. Being immigrants in a new country was difficult enough for my parents, and happy as they were that they’d finally had children, they were often forced to depend on my grandparents to take care of me and my brother while they worked. This arrangement worked for a while until my brother went off to school and it was decided that I should be placed in an environment that would provide me with the opportunity to socialize with peers my own age, a thing that my grandparents couldn’t provide.
Robert Lee Frost was born to journalist William Prescott Frost Jr, and Isabelle Moodie on March 26, 1874, in San Francisco, California. After his fathers’ demise in May 1885, the family moved around the country; they eventually landed in Lawrence, Massachusetts where he graduated from Lawrence High School. The following semester Frost attended Dartmouth College for, only long enough to be accepted into the Theta Delta Chi fraternity. After only two months of college life, he returned home and worked many jobs such as helping his mother teach, delivering newspapers, and working in a lightbulb factory. Frost was never satisfied with any of his odd jobs, he had found his passion- poetry.
In high school, sports were everything, maintaining a good GPA was crucial. Football, soccer, and track were what were what took up most of my time until I had a big injury. Which made me forget about playing sports for a whole year. During this time, I looked for ways to stay busy. I came upon this special opportunity to work with wild rescued animals, At least that’s what the lady I
After a while, I decided to get my own place in Euless, Texas. My very first apartment and with my son Bryson, it was so scary. I had a full-time job and I had to be responsible for taking my son to daycare every morning. I also had to make sure I picked up my son at 6 pm or I would get charged extra at daycare. I really didn 't have any help with my son, unless my best friend picked Bryson up for me.
Thus, my mother decided that I will change my school the next year so for me to transfer I had to really work hard in the last term, term 3, so I can get accepted as an 11th grader. For the next two months that was left of the school year, I stayed up late to study and went to my teachers to seek help. I was eager to show everyone that I can pass this school year. After the two months, I sat for my final exams. I was so nervous and afraid of failing that I will stop my exam for a few minutes to just focus again.
I had my interview in January with the Vista County employer and once they decided that I was fit for the job, they put me through a two month background check that consisted of a background application which included references, job experience, family information, academic grades, and every possible little detail they wanted to know about me. It also included a drug test and required me to fill out dozens of forms. After the long background process, I had finally started my first day working with the SDCDA on April 15th. I work every Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday from 7:00 am to 2:00
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 think about all they had to sacrifice when they fled from their country just so my siblings and I could grow up with more opportunities, and accomplish any goals we set ourselves without having to worry about whether or not tomorrow would come.
Migrating to Raleigh in Aug. 2012, I had to decide between a community college and a four-year university to further my education. Evaluating my financial standing and my parent’s emotional condition of immigrating to a new place, I took the decision to take some time off. My studies had never been interrupted before, and had always been my top priority. During my time off I helped my parents entirely from their state paperwork to getting to know Raleigh as their new home. In Jan. 2013 I joined a nearby community college and worked my way juggling between my classes, work, and family.
My job would very year to year but I mostly helped with setting up events and making sure the participants got to the right event. Sometimes I would even get to participate in the event like the wheel chair relay race. I love working with this organization because I love watching the participates get excited about doing their events. Babysitting/Nanning — 2010-2016 The last six years I have gotten the opportunity to work for a family as their nanny. The child I took care of was born with Down-Syndrome and it was my job to help him with his homework and other daily obstacles he might have.
I was 33-years old when I completed my first Coastline College course in Geology and received an A. This milestone helped me to see the value in learning and gave me the confidence to go after an education I had all but given up on. When I transferred to San Quentin,I immediately enrolled in the college program offered through Patten University. The coolest thing about Patten compared to other prison college programs is that they bring in grad students from surrounding colleges like UC Berkeley and University of SF to help teach and tutor over 20 different classes per semester.Another major plus was that things like tuition, books,and class materials were
