With minor bumps in the road, I completed my freshman year in high school acquiring friends that I still have today. Rumor had it that completing the tenth grade without a drop in my GPA guaranteed me a spot in the 2015 graduating class of BrewTech. Aware of what I was up against, I went into
I’m now a captain and three year cheerleader at Brighton, 2 year United Spirit Association All-American Athlete, and planning to cheer in college. Cheer has given me so much, my best friends, a great relationship with my school and a positive high school experience. I have no idea who or where I would be today if I decided to quit that first horrible practice. Never give up, most things don’t make sense in the moment, but it was will always pay off in the long
I mean everyone always was telling me that as soon as I hit high school to join the FFA program simply because I boosted the best ag teacher in the state, and I wasn’t just hearing this from my friends. No, I was hearing from my older sibling who both had gone through his program. Little did I know that my friends and family would be so right.
Her oldest of the family was her brother Samuel (28) after him is Jose (27) than her sister ( 25) than her other sister Blanca (23) than her other brother Cam (22) and at last her little brother Daniel (12). Maria was a senior in high school. Her plans after high school was to go to lone star college to do 2 years of basics, then transfer to Sam Houston University. Maria was excited to graduate high school because she was going to be to be the first child of her family to get a high school diploma but also be the first one of her family to go to college. Maria had big dreams.
I also made both varsity teams my freshman and sophomore year. All the information that you gave me about how to get into college will be very helpful. I will take all the information into consideration. As a sophomore I 'm taking an AP class, and all my grades are above a “B” Most of them are “A’s” . My goal for after high school is to get into any good university.
I understand that 2.75 is the required grade point average to be accepted in California State University, Dominguez Hills Graduate Program. However, since matured as a student, I thrive to exceed above average expectations. As a college freshman, my first semester as grade point average was a .7. With a grade point average that low, becoming a college student seemed to be an overwhelming experience. However, instead of giving up and accepting defeat in college, I regained my focus and by the end of the first year removed
The freshman myth has really opened my eyes, after all I myself am a freshman in college straight out of high school. The fact that 18 million students in a single year apply for college and 34% of those students drop or flunk out of college is a little scary. I have big goals for life I want to be either a Jag for the Army or a Prosecuting Attorney. The freshman myth is what I was thinking my senior year; piece of cake, easy, not going to have to work as hard as I have the last few years of my life. I learned quick that senior year is a lot more stressful then it sounds.
As a first generation college student, I have the desire to not only make my parents proud of my academic achievements, but to be the first person in my family to receive a college degree. At a very young age, I was always expected to receive A’s and B’s in my school assignments, as well as my final grades. However, I was never rewarded or congratulated whenever I did receive those grades because it was already expected of me to achieve them. Hence, a time in which I have experienced failure but also felt like I let my family down was when I received a D in my Critical Thinking course I was already retaking for the second time. The first time I took Critical Thinking was during the summer in which it was an 8-week long course.
I’m thrilled to say today is the first day of my final semester of college. I felt discouraged when I started this journey two years ago because I had been out of school and wasn’t entirely sure what to expect. I feel so blessed that I was able to make time and do something solely for myself. I feel empowered to finish strong and know I will have earned my bachelor’s degree in just two years while continuing two
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.
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.
Once I entered high school, I immediately hit the ground running and, for the first time, I made honor roll in my first term as a Freshman. At the end of my first year of high school, I earned no less than a B in all of my classes. This made me extremely proud of myself , considering my academic performance in middle school. I knew that I was on the right
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
