In the transition of recreational soccer to competitive soccer, many aspects of the game changed. The game got faster, the girls get meaner, and a leader had to rise. Leaders are hardworking, responsible, and possibly a role model to others around them. Stripping on the blue captains band, either resting at the top of where my sock folds or molding the shape of my arm, is how I have shown leadership in the eight years of playing competitive soccer. The captains band represents an intuition of the burning desire to lead a group of young women throughout the duration of a ninety-minute game.
If Madison High School students were asked, “What is a Bronco?”, they might say a redneck, a hick, or a kid that goes to Blackfoot. When I am asked “What is a Bronco?” , the answer is simple--I am a Bronco, most of my friends are Broncos, my teammates are Broncos and the student body at Blackfoot High School are Broncos. We are each unique, but when our strengths and talents are combined as a whole, the Blackfoot Broncos are amazing.
I have been interested in this career for a while but I just found out that I would like to do this job because of the job reaches we are doing in class. I want to have this job because I like help animals and making them feel better. This career grabbed my interest because I like taking care of animals and taking care of them. Some of the challenges that I would have about this career is that I might have to move away from home or I would not have enough money for college.
Veterinary Technologist and Technician would be the best career choice for me because it would bring me personal satisfaction, financial stability, and opportunites for help others. First, a career in veterinary technologist and technician would bring great personal satisfaction. I enjoy working, helping out, and just being with animals. For example, Julie Legred, a veterinary technician and executive director at the National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America, says, “We do everything except diagnose, prescribe and do surgery, They often work in private clinics and animal hospitals, assisting veterinarians with the care of animals” ("Veterinary Technologist and Technician"). Without veterinary technologists and technicians,
I have always had a passion for equine studies. This passion is why I choose to major in Equine science, to advance my learning in the area that I love and become successful as an Equine professional. My objective is to be a high performing student at Auburn, excel in my area of study, and contribute my attributes to the Auburn University community. After receiving my bachelors degree in Equine Sciences, I plan to attend Auburn College of Veterinary Medicine for four years and receive my doctorate degree. I intend to be one of the most respected Equine Veterinarians in my practice and continually expand my knowledge and career efficiency.
For my Diverse Field Experience this semester, I spent fifteen hours at the Mclean County Juvenile Detention Center. This particular center was occupied by about 8-14 juveniles at a time, all depending on court dates and occupancy of other nearby detention centers. This center usually had 3 staff members working the shift every time I went, which was seven to nine on weekday afternoons. I was intrigued to go to at this time because I thought it would be the time of the day were the juveniles had no school work or other obligations to do while I was there. I wanted to see what they liked to do in the free time before bed, the only stipulation being mandatory snack time at eight pm.
Why do I want to go to Augustana? Honestly, I 'm not sure, however it was one of the few places I visited that struck a chord with me. The campus was beautiful and the spacing of the buildings gave the campus a sense of community, while holding onto that induvial personality. I felt a sense of community with the stories I heard of sledding down the hills in the winter and going to see the plays and art shows put on. One of the things that stood out to me was the Swedish Immigrant Center.
As a child, I always found an attraction towards interacting with animals and grabbed every opportunity to visit a zoo. Growing up, my fascination and interactions with the animal kingdom became more intimate and enabled me to develop a strong inclination towards the metabolical, physiological and psychological working of a living organism, from the size of a microscopic bacterium to the giants of the world such as whales and elephants. This inclination developed my research on various ways I could play a part in the welfare of animals. My aspiration towards studying veterinary medicine developed with visits to Veterinary clinics to save a stray cat or accompany my neighbour's dog.
My ultimate educational goal is to graduate from the University of Nebraska in Lincoln, with a degree in business administration. Although this sounds relatively simple, I know that there is a great deal of effort that goes into such a feat. Student loans are sometimes considered an “investment for your education”, but I am determined to complete my college degree without accumulating debt. I consider student loans to be just another tool for debt, which is not beneficial to me in any way.
My goals have changed a lot over the last couple of years. Bouncing back and forth between majors and deciding if I even want to be taking college classes right now. I kept asking myself why I should struggle with hard classes when I have a good job right now. But then I stopped and repeated “good job right now.” My job as a twenty year old might support me right now but is it going to support me in ten or fifteen years when I’m trying to buy a house and support my family?
Over the course of my academic career, I have developed several positive traits that make make me a qualified candidate for National Junior Honors Society. My experience from being in a variety of school clubs and leadership positions has equipped me with the necessary character traits for an aspiring National Junior Honors Society member. I pride myself on being reliable, ambitious, and versatile. I have gained most of these traits through being in positions of responsibility.
My first thought of what I would do, as a career would be something far away from a high school. This was all true till my junior year of high school. I found my passion to teach. I found my passion three hours away from my high school on a fall weekend. I had an amazing opportunity to service as a camp counselor at an FFA camp.
Personal Statement- Stephanie Olivera Growing up I was always the odd one in our family. When my parents started having children, they did not plan us very well. I am 5 years younger than my older brother, 4 years younger than my sister and 8 years older than my younger brother. I was the child that did not have anyone to "play" with, and I grew accustomed to being alone.
