Everything that I love my family, friends and even my boyfriend are back there, but I came here for a reason, college. When I was in high school, I always said that my dream was to attend college here in NYC. My mother made everything to make that dream come true, and here we are, all three of us my mom, my little sis and me living in the famous city of New York. Since day one I’ve been trying to accomplish that goal, to have my bachelors degree. In Puerto Rico I was on my second semester on criminal justice in the University of PR in
Kewauna’s Ambition Kewauna used perseverance, passion, and courage to succeed in college. Firstly, Kewauna used perseverance to graduate from college.

Kewauna used passion to succeed in college.
In high school I was able to choose an elective that had great appeal to me- Chicano Studies. This was a new course at my high school, it was providential for me that the course became available because of the large impact it had on my life. In this course we studied, the history of Mexico and its influence on current culture, past civil rights leaders, and the topic that struck me the most, current events. Our teacher, Mr. Pisano, expressed his alacrity to teach the course to the administration at our high school, and with appeal he was able to teach one section of the course. Not knowing what to expect exactly, I signed up for the course eager to learn more about my Mexican-American roots.
Wina was able to have a better chance of applying for more companies because a business major is more abroad. Not only did it bring economic benefits, but it helped in a way that she could become more confident since she persevered and achieved her dream of earning a degree. Also, she learned a lot of college lessons during those years and is able to practice it in real life, In the end, interviewing my mom, Wina Bailey, helped me understand and learn from her mistakes and how college is a huge benefit of being successful in life. The last message my mom presented to me is to go to college right after high school, get it done right away, and take advantage of opportunities whether it’s tutoring or being able to retake a test, Nonetheless, “ Time management is the utmost, once you get that down you won’t be overwhelmed” this allows any college student to be prioritized and have a “better flow” when it comes to school or college work. That is why college is so important to my
In the past, I was the treasurer for my high school’s DECA club and I was also in charge of running my high school’s store. Last winter I became part of Merrimack’s Orientation staff, which I believe shows student leadership because I was responsible for helping the incoming freshmen acclimate to college and become responsible individuals. Being an Orientation staff member required a lot of professionalism because we were in charge of making sure we were always on time for events and respectful to the presenters and each other. Last spring, I was hired at Shaw’s Supermarket and I have recently been promoted to work in the Customer Service Desk. I believe my position shows leadership outside of campus because I am responsible for making sure

leaving my door open, talking to her about her day, and starting conversations. The only reason I mention this is because before I came to college, I thought an RA was simply, a student leader who would be friends with all the people on their floor and would set up fun programs so they could all interact and everyone would become a big happy family. While this could be a possibility, although
The American experience is not unfamiliar to me, I have been visiting America since I was a child and as a child I always wanted to move to America. My first visit here I fell in love with the culture specifically the freedom of expression. However the opportunity did not emerge for me to move to America legitimately and as promising young child, I did not want to damage my future by moving to a country illegally where I could not live to my full potential. I stayed in Jamaica and I completed my University education as a registered nurse and had become comfortable with my life in Jamaica. I started working the spring of 2013 and upon receival of my first paycheck, I was reminded that this is not the place I wanted to be.
Before coming to Bowling Green State University, diversity and race equality was always emphasized in my hometown. As a matter of fact, I do not recall any real conflicts within the schools I attended that arouse due to racial conflicts during my time there. The diversity among the student population and the equality among races here at BGSU was actually a big deciding factor when I was choosing where I wanted to go to college. As a freshman last year I was living in a dorm and luckily got a very wide variety of races, personalities, and backgrounds held by my “floormates” which is exactly what I wanted. After a couple of weeks of settling in and getting to know everyone, I began to meet people that did not have the diversity in their hometowns that mine did, and although this was just a lack of first-hand experience for most, one girl in particular was blatantly racist in her ideology of minorities, blacks in
A very good morning to ladies and gentlemen. On this glorious morning, I, Goh Sher Li who was a student from Bachelor Degree in Marketing Year 1 in Tunku Abdul Rahman University College would like to thank the lecturer for giving me this opportunity to share about “fear”. In my speech, I am going to share with you what is “fear” and my experience of “fear”. "Fear" is one of the selections of my coursework topic. I still remember that day I first saw it in the lecture hall although just a few second, it just like a black hold attract me and made me have impulse to choose it as my topic although I have no idea for this topic at that moment.
My first encounter with George Washington University was last Halloween. Coincidentally, I had the opportunity to visit the campus and speak to some students. I was amused by its beauty, the amount of history behind and its strategic proximity to the nation’s utmost iconic buildings and how proud and enthusiastic the students were when talking in regards to their school. Inspired by this experience, I wanted to be part of this community and decided to apply. I came to be familiar with Physician Assistants during one of my grandmother’s total knee replacement.

I think I would be a good candidate to attend the Summer Senior program because my goal to attend USC after graduating from high school. This opportunity will allow me to experience life as a college student, while learning to navigate through the admissions process at USC.

The Summer Senior program will also help me to decide if this is the right path for me. I will develop and build upon my networking skills while meeting new peers who share the similar interests.
For example, there is a writing lab, technology support, career exploration and a counseling center. Most importantly, college professors are available to help and share their experiences with me. If given the opportunity to be a student at Appalachian State University, I will bring the same friendly attitude I received when I took my campus tour of ASU. On campus, I will be the one wearing ASU t-shirts, working with a study group or exercising in the Recreation Center. Of course this is just the start of what ASU has to offer, my list of positive qualities
