I am Matthew McVey even though typing that very redundant. I don’t always like to play by the rules, but most of the time even the rules need to be fallowed for the sake of everyone else. I can be a perfectionist and an utterly complete fool. Sometimes the simplest concept evades my mind entirely. I know the world will not wait for me to catch up, so I just have to be ahead of the world.
I hoped my students would enjoy dancing, furthermore learn more about their heritage through folkloric dance. Seeing the joy on the students, parents and staff inspired me to write a 112 Foundation Grant to start a folkloric dance group at Green Bay. I want all students to understand that their culture is rich in traditions and folklore. Through folkloric dancing they will learn about Latin American music, traditions, and history. I truly believe it will also encourage them to continue to learn more about their culture.
He praises the students decision on attending college and truly believes it will benefit them. He explains how all students are required to take General Education classes, and that students should take advantage of the opportunities and information available. Bosworth advises to explore and be adventurous of the world seeing what it has to offer and everything a person can learn. He explains receiving a degree is not the end of learning, but only the beginning. Using what is learned to grasp further skills will push the millennial generation very far in life.
Moving into the real world (workforce) I will feel these same emotions once again during stressful and busy times, and people will need my empathy. Knowing this I will be able to be empathetic toward situations at hand, allowing myself and my peers to collaborate in a more operative manner. What really drives me to “my quality world” and a “life of success” are the multiple careers I dream of. Computer network engineering, audio engineering, ministering the gospel, and photography. I strive to make audio engineering and photography my hobbies, and keep Computer network engineering as my main goal when I’m done with college, with that being one of my goals I will be able to have a steady income and provide for myself.
A lot of people "'understand what it is to strive for something... to want to be someone you're not, to want to achieve something that's just beyond reach, whether it's professional success or wealth or idealized love - or a 4.0 or admission to [UNLV]'" (Rimer 1). Wanting to achieve something can sometimes lead to the extremes. In The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Gatsby made some wrong turns in order to achieve his dreams and wealth, but still wasn't enough to be where he wanted to be. Having a green light or main goal in life may decide if someone goes in the wrong direction and ends up in the wrong place.
Titan P.R.I.D.E is a key aspect in everything I do. The term PRIDE gives me the reminder that the decisions I make in life, for good or for worse are all part of my choice. It means my future job, life, and success are all in my hands, and the decisions that I make today will shape how my future will play out. With this in mind, the classes, clubs, and extracurriculars I have and will take are all a ramp to my future.
This is partially why I am applying to the Integrated Social Sciences degree. I believe that this is the best fit for my learning style, and I know I will be able to apply myself fully to this major. The largest part of this decision, however, is the knowledge of learning about different cultures. Being raised multi-ethnic, I was entranced by cultures around the world because I found a familiarity in the traditions of others that I did not find growing
I want to do better for myself, my family, and kids whom may be struggling or have struggled the same way I have. I want to help myself and others tear down the walls that have been built around us and I know this program can help me do that. I’ve aways said that money should never be something that keeps me from fulfilling my dreams, but to a certain extent, people whom have the money to receive the best education are at an advantage. This program will help me expand my knowledge in colleges and
There is so much I can and will do in my new college community. I will initiate conversations about things that need to improve, encourage students to strive to make a difference, and volunteer around the campus whenever the opportunity is given. The future excites me and I am ready to become an active member of a new community. I have a lot of hope in the future of our developing community because of all the students recently inducted into the National Honor Society and the active adults always ready to lend a helping hand. If ever given the chance, I would come back and volunteer for my home community
I saw that it was important to maintain high academics and extracurriculars because these are important for college and developing time management skills. My perspective on my Dyslexia drastically changed during high school because I saw how it had helped me learn to self-advocate, be internally motivated and see the impact of my decisions on the
The National Honor Society is an opportunity for many students, who are well educated with dreams and leaderships skills, to upgrade themselves. The sole purpose of this organization is to endeavor leaders in different societies to help out their community. It will help colleges to notify the leaders when looking at students’ resumes, for those students in this organization will be the few who are well-developed leaders in their school. Since this will be the first time to be given the opportunity to contribute to this organization, I may not know everything about the requirements in which I need to manage.
I want students to push themselves harder than they though possible, which has been modeled by my professors pushing me to do the same. Teachers are role models to show students that it is okay to not be perfect, but it is about trying to improve and persevere. George Fox has teachers that modeled and let me practice my own pedagogy, which will allow me to be a confident and effective educator. By finishing my education at George Fox I can show my students what it is like to set goals and finish them. I am a proud first generation college student
When applying to various colleges or scholarships, many ask to see what activities were performed both in and out of the school environment. This is very important because it can reveal points about your character and who you are. Later, this can also lead to providing background in the career path you are choosing. Volunteering can offer ventures to engage in work that includes trying out a new career without making a commitment, to gain experience in a new field, and to provide extensive training of skills that will be utilized later on. Overall, being a volunteer helps give an endless amount of opportunities.
I have now been on the Radford University campus for seven days. I cannot say these seven days have been the best of my life, but I assume they could have gone much worse. I believe to some extent that everything in life happens for a reason. My being here is no exception to that; I simply need to discover what that reason may be. Looking to the past I can see how certain experiences such as successful and failed attempts at communication, in addition to guidance from a teacher that I respect and admire, culminated in my being here at this moment.
