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.
As a member of a team, I had to fully commit myself, because my actions did not only have an effect on myself but my teammates as well. Giving 110% was something my parents had taught me to always do. I learned the importance of responsibility. I told my mom my junior year of high school that I wanted to play lacrosse in college. She had told me if I really wanted to play in college that I would have to work hard, practice more and focus on my grades.
Last spring semester, I took GOVT 2305 - the Federal Government- and found myself involved in discussions and debates. I immediately registered for the next government class and thought it would be another interesting class. Not many students have an opportunity to study government during the most intense and exciting time in America - the presidential race. Considering it is an Honors class, I thought it would be a challenge with many assignments and exams that are due weekly. By taking my academic progress to a new level, I wanted to challenge my time-management skill and improve my writing skill; I also want to get a special recognition from the Honors institution on my transcript and separate myself from other students.
Sophmore year was an awakening for me. It was the year that I could apply to college classes at George Washington University. Taking classes at GW was my ultimate reason for going to School Without Walls high school. I desperately wanted to graduate with an Associates degree. I wanted to be able to show that I was capable of handling college assignments and that I could reedem myself.
But i had succeed and i was excited for all driving adventured to come with my friends. I felt nothing but excitement. Driving was everything i hoped and anticipated it to be, Except for one exception. One day in June i had just gotten out of school and my little brother had called me to pick him up from the opposite side of the school building, but with an unbearable line traffic i choose to take a lap around town to get to the other side, living in a small town i thought this would take less time then waiting in the line with no patience. I was at a red light very close to the school when i had a green arrow i proceeded on driving straight until very suddenly a car had pulled out directly into the street inches in front of me, with very little time to even get my foot on the brake, i had smashed directly into the driver side of the other car.
If I had applied in high school my honest answer would have been that I have never truly prepared an upper division course but going through the community college system I can say I am more prepared than I have ever been in my academic career. Choosing my major, like any other student, was a difficult decision but I realized that although my original intentions was to get a bachelor in history I discovered a greater passion in anthropology. When I took my first antropology class I was amazed at the oppurtunities that anthropology offered me not only as an academic student but a career passion. Although I am declaring my career to be archeology I am flexible with the new possibilities that the anthroplogy major contains. I have spent countless
I plan on accomplishing three different goals by the end of freshman year and high school in general. These goals consist of achieving a 4.0 grade point average or higher while being involved at school simultaneously, Going to a 4 year university to pursue my career, and to master the art of surfing. It is important for my focus to stay on these goals, and high school will not be one of the obstacles that takes me down. Achieving a high grade point average in high school is one of the key things that is necessary to get into a good university. That is why it is extremely important that I do this and that I stay on track, no matter what gets in the way.
What is my purpose? Since I was a child I was always changing what I wanted to be when I grow up, but now I have everything more clear, I remember since I was a first grader I promise to my uncle and to myself that I will finish college. I want to be an inspiration to my brothers and my parents that I accomplish my goal, I'm always thinking about my future how I will look like in three or five years what I'm doing all this why do I do my homework, why do I work, I ask to myself a lot of things, I want to try to do my best every day no matter what I try to go to school everyday even if I'm sick I want to enjoy every single moment of my life this is the main reason of going to college to get a better paid in job help my parents and brothers, I want to go to college finish my career be someone successful be someone, work hard in school, in life and everywhere. Finish college is one of my biggest goals is like one of those episodes that you want to watch every Sunday, you know that you have to wait for it but at the end is worth it. I remember when I first came to United States of America two years ago I felt
Intro My brother, being a ninth grader at the high school, is constantly reminded of the importance of college and his performance in high school. I want to start looking into colleges but i don’t know where to start. The thought of getting left behind in society because I didn’t look for a college is nerve racking, but I already knew some things. I knew that your performance in high school helps with your college, but that’s about it. I still had a lot to learn before I can decide on a college Some things I hoped to learn throughout this project is how I can get into a college with minimum student loan, what colleges I’m interested in, what colleges are looking for, is studying abroad better than staying in the states, and what classes I should take in college.
By the end of my freshman year of high school I knew this was now something I wanted to pursue and took every academic and shadowing opportunity I could to ensure this. Upon graduating high school, I enrolled at the University of Oklahoma with a clear-cut idea of what I wanted to pursue. I declared a major in biology and began my academic career. During this time I was able to continue shadowing, but experienced a slight set back. Like many individuals, it took me some time to adapt to the college lifestyle and my GPA suffered from that.
The academic success I’ve had during my final two years at college has only made me hungrier for more success. I have already set aside the blueprint for my study schedule in anticipation for law school. Villanova Law School still remains one of my top institutions to attend in Fall 2016. My experiences balancing sports, school, and work gives me an upper hand on prospective students that only had to worry about academics during their time in undergrad. Athletes, overall, have a strong desire to strive for perfection, and although it will be the toughest challenge of my life thus far, I am ready to put in the work in order to achieve law school excellence at Villanova
In high school, the uttermost important goal for me is to attend college and pursuing my dream of studying forensics, and eventually taking that success and finding a way to give back to the community and people that raised me. The CBC Spouses Education Scholarship will help me acquire the funds to achieve my goal in the long run. I have always been determined and an all round optimist. However, when I entered high school I found out that we, as in my mother and I, do not possess the kind of financial stability that it takes to acquire the learning that I desired. If I cannot work through college and cannot afford my books, unfortunately, all of my hard work will go down the drain.
Ever since she was young, Blue’s dad pushed her to be the best student she can be. His goal for her is to attend Harvard University and has made it her goal as well. When Blue was young, her dad bought her a desk specifically for writing her college application. Her dad describes the desk as “the perfect surface on which to draft an admissions essay to make any Harvard graybeard shiver in his dress slacks.” (Pessl 52) Because he has set a big goal for her, Blue learns how to work hard in school and stay focused on her long term goal instead of getting caught up in high school drama. Despite moving to dozens of new schools, Blue is always the one to beat, and her dad makes sure the dean of any new school knows that.
