Over the weekend I interviewed a Platteville RA (Resident Assistant), because they generally have good advice to incoming classes. RA’s deal with any problem on their wing or the whole building when on call. Zach Hahn is the RA on the eastside of Southwest Hall on floor three. Scheduling an interview with this popular man was challenging, although the interview was brief he shared some valuable information. Incoming freshman should know what happens when a student must be written up, why the first month of school is the busiest time, and lastly what is the best part about being a RA.
Through my experience as a Peer Academic Leader, I was able to hold two counseling sessions with each student per semester to provide myself as a resource. I learned how to adapt to the individual needs of students to provide them the best education. Like students with a communication disorder, many of my students would shy away from activities or tasks because of obstacles. Through these experiences, I watched my students gain the confidence to participate in activities and excel in academics to become successful individuals. As a future Speech Language Pathologist, many qualities that I possess can be improved by furthering my education.
So far, my life has been full of change. I was born in, India, and moved around for many of the early years of my life. I went from, Toronto, Dayton, Cincinnati, Wheaton, and finally, Elk Grove Village, in a six-year span of my life. These formative years were great for me because my parents always pushed me to do my best. Academically, I was pushed into performing the best I could such as trying my best in English class even though it was a struggle in the beginning.
During the workouts , people my age would need help and i even helped them after practice. Last year being a veteran out there, I mentored quite a few of the younger athletes. Id say the biggest contributor to my current leadership skills is JROTC. JROTC has given me a chance to enhance my leadership skills and opportunities to develop others. I was placed in JROTC my freshman year, and get to see how the program worked.
Life is a balancing act; school, homework, extracurricular activities, along with spending time with friends and family can be difficult. High school was a time of growth for me, especially going into my junior year where I took harder courses, I worked five to six days a week, I was a part of three clubs, and I was preparing for the multiple standardized tests I would be taking. Being organized within my classes was something that helped me to balance staying on top of all my work in and out of school and spending time with my family and friends. Without this balance in my life I would not be able to work, get all my homework done, and still have time to hang out with my friends at the mall or go to concerts with them. Transitioning from high
All of these reasons stated can cause senioritis along with many more. Causes Senioritis? By senior year the class load is heavier than normal and most are trying to get prepared for college.

Now this semester is about to come to an end, I’m come a long way, have had great progress to get to this point, so proud to say how happy I am to obtain the information I’ve obtained and read while attending class Phil 383T this semester. During, many discussions in class I have come to realize that technology for years as altered the way we think, influencing the way we think and live from day to day. Technology, has mentally shifted our brains to see and do things differently. In one sense, with the many discussions of technology in class discussions how technology has changed in so many ways. For the duration of, reading assignments partaking for the next class, as I read, many times my thoughts would get wedged trying
My brother’s diagnoses have brought challenges for my family, but at an early stage in my life it has impacted the way I value helping others. My innate desire to help my brother through such a difficult time in his life has emphasized a new aspect of who I am as a person. This has transcribed and impacted other relations I have with other people and have shed a new light in the great satisfaction I get from helping others. This is why I want to become a physical therapist to not only rehabilitate their body’s back to good health, but to make an everlasting difference in people’s
Although I had some pretty hard setbacks, I did have great times as well. Some of the successes I had, before getting kicked out, were being able to make friends with two new teachers, that the school had hired, when the new school year had started. My American Government teacher was Mrs. Elizabeth Adkins and my CP English 3 teacher was Miss Robyn Spangler. Another success I had was making great grades and attending the rest of the time I had spent at the school with my boyfriend, Brandon Crawford.
“Reflection Proyect” Being in High School almost for four years, I have growth as student, also as a person, and I had developed some skills, thanks to my teachers I have had the greatest experiences as a student and now at least six months to get graduated checking my transcript data and looking for my goals for the future, I will like to give recommendations to freshman, since I had passed for that level, and I know how it feels like.

Before 10th grade, I had an insufficiently rigorous course load to yield a competitive GPA. After taking the most rigorous classes for a year and boosting my GPA, I have decided to help my classmates tackle the competition at my school by helping them organize their schedules and classes for future academic years. I have reached out to these classmates through class projects and tutoring sessions. So far, I have helped about five teenagers become competitive. I have also frequently volunteered at a local food pantry.
For this project, I will interview four current and previous RAs and gather narrative data regarding their experiences as a freshmen women’s RA. The sample that I have selected is diverse in many ways — age, experience, ethnicity and status as a student at FPU. I hope to find similar themes and ideas between the four storytellers, as well as gain more insight into how RAs feel that they did balancing these many roles. Below is a timeline of the the tasks and steps that I will take over the course of the next semester in order to complete my senior project. I have also included a few possible interview questions: What is/was a typical “day in the life” like for you?
Max of 110 words each Leadership/group contributions: Describe examples of your leadership experience and share how you have significantly influenced others, helped resolve disputes, or contributed to group efforts over time. Consider responsibilities you have taken for initiatives in or out of school. I have been involved in my school’s Link Crew program since my junior year of high school. Through this program I have been able to help incoming freshmen adjust to the high school environment, and have gained skills in leadership and public speaking for myself. When I first joined Link Crew, I was not very confident in leading groups or talking to large groups in general.
From creating the Student Council my freshmen year, to serving as Freshmen, Sophomore, and Senior Class President, I work to the best of my abilities to better my school. My junior year, when Noel Community Arts Middle School was in the process of closure, I organized students and invited at
I feel grateful for the guidance and friendship that my advisors at Park have given me. While there are many things I hope my next advisor learns about me, and there are two important things I would like my Dana Hall advisor to know about me. Over the years, I have grown passionates for many different hobbies. I have always had a passion for arts and craft and I started doing more in second grade After a long day at school, I began to attend crocheting lessons as something fun and relaxing. At first, I didn 't think I would enjoy it, but after I completed my first project, a headband, I felt very proud of myself that I made a headband designed by me that I could wear.
