After finishing High School, I felt like I had just accomplished a chapter in my life. I was now moving on to college to pursue a bachelor 's degree in Criminal Justice. I would be attending Santa Monica College, starting fall of 2016. I decided to go to SMC to experience its culturally diverse environment. My first semester I had many obstacles; however, it was worth it because at the end I learned to not give up.
As I am quickly approaching the end of my senior, I am looking back at how far I have come since freshman year and everything that Henley High School has helped me accomplish in my life. In preparation for the life that every senior must experience after school, the senior capstone project was put in place to help seniors find out what they would suit them as career and give them some of the necessary tools in achieving that. Part of the capstone was earning service hours at a non profit organization, that can go on a resume. With serving came a facilitator, who guides one’s service, and also the challenges and success of the service itself. To Provide help on future careers, Henley High School also provided an opportunity to take the CIS test
Without taking summer courses I will not be able to receive this minor without an extra semester at school or overburdening myself for a few semesters. Learning sign language is very important to me while I am studying to become a teacher. Most likely during my time in the classroom I will have multiple students with hearing disabilities. To help accommodate
In August two-thousand fifteen i started my eighth grade year at Watkins Memorial middle school , it is the final year in the middle school which means we 're the oldest out of all three grades. With us being the oldest out of all three grades that means a lot of the sixth and seventh graders look up to us watch what we do , so we have to be good role models and set a good example so when we go to Watkins Memorial High school they will not have us here and will have to be able to continue what we started and set good examples for more kids. A couple days after eighth grade started on August twenty-third it was my thirteenth birthday, and i happy to finally be a teenager ! My mom decorated my room with a bunch of streamers and balloons everywhere while i was at school. On the balloon strings were little notes and pictures starting from when i was born until my i turned thirteen.
Another example of success in my life is completing my first year of college at Chico State well without any huge setbacks. I feel that I was triumphant in my first year of college with the help of believing that there have been many people that have graduated college, so why can I not do this. Additionally, having a great support system back home and at Chico helped greatly in the transition to the new environment of Chico State. Also, learning from my mistakes in high school of not getting the best grades because of lack of effort helped me become a strong student academically at Chico State in my first two semesters, due to not wanting to repeat the past. My last example of success in my life is being more outgoing and being able to hold a conversation with I person I just met a few minutes.
Zia Lohrasbi SGA Reflection Paper Looking back at the projects we completed this year, I would split this last semester into two categories concerning SGA member participation and the different behavior traits evaluated on the other form. Those two categories are student life events and student advocates. Concerning student life events we were very successful if not rushed. I think one of our better traits as a team is being able to respond to emergencies efficiently. Emergencies in the sense of time in that, for these events this past semester, each was planned within a week of the date which is important to note concerning our workload this year as opposed to last year in that previous SGA teams were able to plan the same number of events
I am certain that hard work and learning, mastering my craft will enable me to pay back my debts on graduation and after I have started my career. Now January, 13th 2016 my debt amount I have accumulated is $66,124.06 and I do expect it to rise since I have the eight credit classes left to take at Portland State
How I Graduated High School Have you ever procrastinated for so long that it finally caught up to you? Well that was the story of my life in my senior year of high school. To me, high school wasn’t about learning and doing school work, it was more about hanging out with friends and living a life of leisure and free time. Needless to say, by the end of my sophomore year, everything changed and I learned things the hard way. Getting your responsibilities out of the way, and taken care of is always better done soon rather than later.
In the beginning of the semester I set out four objectives that I was on a quest to achieving and conquering by the end of this spring semester. I could have set simple objectives that I would have achieved within the first two weeks of being an intern, but I really wanted to push myself a bit harder. My whole reasoning behind accepting the internship at Heartland Living and Rehabilitation facility was to get clinical hours with the patients that come in for short and long-term care. I did not know that being an Intern at Heartland would challenge me in ways I would have never imagined. The learning objective I will be discussing is “I intend to learn how to complete CCM MDS assessments.” CCM MDS assessments is an assessment used in health
In most colleges, only the last year grades counts towards your final GPA but don’t be fooled by this system, you need to develop top class habit from day 1 and prepare yourself for the final year. Getting a first class can make the difference between getting your dream job or a shabby job at a shabby company where you will be doing shabby work. Don’t bunk classes Missing classes is the shortest route to failure in college, if you miss a class because you are sick or have something very important to attend to, make sure you notify your lecturer beforehand. Some colleges also award marks for
One of the ways I have been able to care for those in the Loyola community is through my job as a Peer Advisor, which I was compensated for at a rate for $9.00/hr, then $10.00/hr my second year. I have worked as a Peer Advisor for the Fall of 2014, 2015, and I have been lucky enough to be rehired for the upcoming Fall of 2016. As a Peer Advisor my job was to help the first year students transition to Loyola, and help facilitate the UNIV classroom. When I became a Peer Advisor I really wanted to help the first year students know that they were not by themselves. It was through my PowerPoints, office hours, and talks with my students that I came to share my experiences with them, and help them settle into college.
After a pause of almost 25 years, I am returning to the college classroom and to say that there are mixed emotions would be an understatement. Sure, I’m excited to start but also a bit fearful if I’m being honest. I’ve worked for large and international companies during this time but getting back to college has always been a goal of mine. No time like the present I guess! I am married with a one daughter who will be heading to college next fall and she is definitely a large and important part of my life.
This will help me complete my prerequisites and also help me learn all about what I need to know to have my dream career. I believe that I deserve this scholarship because I am hard-working and dedicated. I will graduate high school a semester early with all my credits and a 3.6 GPA. I have worked since the summer I turned 15, and now during my senior year, I hold two part time jobs adding up to about 30-40 hours a week while still going to highschool full time. I have also held many leadership positions throughout my high school years.
Doing a presentation in high school with all the classmates I grew up with since preschool was scary enough. I think doing this presentation made me realize the reason why I’m in college. I learned through this experience that the only way to keep going in life is to get over what’s in the way of stopping you. In the beginning I felt like I was coming to college just because it was the right thing to do. For me this was a turning point in my life, I realized the true meaning for me coming to college.
