I love learning. I always made sure, with the reassurance of my parents, that I had the best grades possible and I went to school everyday because I was taught education was extremely important. I have dedicated a lot of time, work and effort to maintain my 3.8 GPA. Unfortunately, my Senior year was not how I pictured
Although my mentee is different than me in some ways, we have found various ways to connect on other subjects. I have helped my mentee go from making C’s in all of her classes, to now being an honor roll student. We’ve worked each session on study skills, time management and organization. It has been so rewarding seeing her achieve all of her goals she has set for herself at the beginning of the year. Also, aside from grades and school my mentee struggles from a lot of changes that happens in their home.
That inspired me, because he went through so much yet he still accomplished many things. If I can push all those roadblocks of my life a side I can accomplish most of my goals
At the time, I did not know, that Mock Trial was going to change my high school career. During my first year as a trial attorney, I not only improved immensely in my public speaking and communication skills but also made new friends. After a successful year and great scores at two regional competitions, I was truly proud of our team's achievement. However, many members just seemed to be completely disinterested. That is when I decided to step up and ran for the Mock Trial President position with one main goal— to unite the team.
After tough losses, the team had to screw their heads on straight and work even harder than the previous week. The practices became more focused, longer, and more productive. After great wins the team celebrated but then got back to practice as there was more work to do. There was always something to learn and practice in order to become better. I learned a lot of this just by being there and watching the practices and
From my teachers to my classmates, the numerous people at this school are a mix of the most wonderful, kind, and encouraging people that I have ever encountered. One of the most memorable experiences that I have had at Prairie Ridge was my participation in a group for new students organized by two great counselors: Mr. Dusenske and Mrs. Berg. I am very thankful for this experience because I was able to become comfortable and happy at Prairie Ridge alongside other students with whom I could empathize. Furthermore, without the encouragement and kindness from my peers or the PR staff, I would not have felt the desire to succeed , nor would I have stepped out of my comfort zone to do
I am so grateful for having all the professors I have today. My words cannot explain how thankful I am to my biology professor Navneet Kaur, English professor Rachel Ihara, and SD professor and my advisor George Hill. It was very hard for me to get through but because of my professors, I have accomplished my goals as a freshman. Especially George Hill, he has shown me the right direction from the first day when I came for registration. I am so glad that I have chosen to attend KCC because my dreams began here!
The best description I can give myself is that I am a hard-working loyal person and after facing adversity in my childhood, I can say that I have contributed a lot to the College of Charleston and given back to my community. As a Resident Assistant I experienced many different relationships and situations. It enhanced my confidence and people skills and it led to me winning RA of the semester. I have involvement volunteering in the community and my with the M.O.V.E program which helps better diversify the school. My weakness is I have trouble enforcing my idea in a
It's an absolute pleasure to know that the people I helped were able to inspire me. I can't wait until I'm able to get that feeling of inspiration next year. For awhile I felt that I would never make it through high school because I could not get over the fear of talking in front of people. The 8th graders were more outgoing than I was when I first joined. They had no trouble coming up to me and asking for my name.
He is a smart kid who is study hard, work hard and improve by himself. From his success, we can see the most important factors that had a great influence on keeping Rameck out of trouble were institutional support, luck, and self-examination.

I feel grateful for the guidance and friendship that my advisors at Park have given me. While there are many things I hope my next advisor learns about me, and there are two important things I would like my Dana Hall advisor to know about me. Over the years, I have grown passionates for many different hobbies. I have always had a passion for arts and craft and I started doing more in second grade After a long day at school, I began to attend crocheting lessons as something fun and relaxing. At first, I didn 't think I would enjoy it, but after I completed my first project, a headband, I felt very proud of myself that I made a headband designed by me that I could wear.
Especially within Little Falls High School the tools that faculty, and even other students ensure provide an environment to which anyone can thrive. Throughout my years I have achieved multiple academic awards and accolades. To get to to a point in my education where I was able to receive such great awards took serious dedication not only on my part but all the teachers as well. Learning new material in various topics does not come easy to me. I started off certain classes like geometry or spanish with no clue what I was doing and even a few bad grades in the beginning.
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
I am grateful for having had the opportunity to learn and grow at Keystone in the addictions field. The staff has been patient and helpful as I have gained much knowledge as I worked through my master’s program. There are not words to express the gratitude I have for everyone and all that they have done for me this last year, not only, professionally, but also, personally through my journey at Keystone.
