I refer to an application I made to HMP Parc for the post of Prison Custody Officer. I have been told I have not progressed as I have failed the above enhanced Level 1 security vetting. The purpose of this letter is to appeal against this decision. I have passed every stage of the interviewing process for the HMP Parc post; including an interview with the Prison Director and have now had the devastating news that I have failed the security vetting. I have previously applied for several suitable and similar posts following completion of my university degree in the hope of starting my career and this post is the first interview I was invited to.
That is exactly what happened every time I asked for a toy; I never got it due to money problems. As I progressed in age, I started to realize that toys weren’t going to benefit me ,that I needed to focus on my education which is the key to success. From that moment on I never gave up on anything, I always found a way to get end results. TRANSLATION- I wasn’t going to let anything tie me down from being successful. III.
As a kid have you ever hoped that one day you would finally be tall enough to push the shopping cart while going shopping with your mom? Or that one day where you parents finally allow you to see a horror movie you have begged and begged to watch. Well to be able to do these things you have to grow up. If you don’t grow up, these things would never be possible. Growing up means that when things get hard, you don’t give up or quit, but you will always have your past memories at heart, and you will have to independently teach yourself when there’s no one around to be your teacher.
I was never interested in academics nor did I ever consider myself ever wanting to teach. In fact, I almost did not graduate high school. However, because I wanted to make my mother proud, and achieve my dream of becoming a firefighter I pushed myself to graduate high school. Saving someone’s life from a burning building, rescuing a teen from a car crash, or bringing a cat home to their owner after getting stuck on a tree. It all seemed great, but was I ready or would I ever be ready to see people in their worst days?
This guided her decision to vote to approve the student's appeal. Another committee member is a current student at the University of Oklahoma. He is a senior about to graduate in May. His vote and opinion is based upon his experience as a student and comes from a place that "everyone struggles, she can figure it out". At first he wanted to venture towards denying her petition.
“Be realistic Mariel”, “Are you really going to go through with the idea of college?”, “People like us never make it.” Those were words engraved in my mind as a result of some of my loved ones not believing in me. To them the odds of me obtaining a bachelor’s degree were too farfetched; a waste of time and money. However, my mindset never quavered; I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Spanish translation and interpreting, maintaining good grades while actively participating in campus organizations and community service events. In fact, here I am today, applying to
I have never been one of those kids who fancied education from a tender age. I loved playing around and having fun with friends. My first day in school was among the worst days of my life. To me, I felt like my parents did not want me around them and so they had to shove in one of the daycares around. I had no option but to get used to the new environment and people as well.
I never really had anyone to look up to in my life, and seeing how I grew up I didn’t want them to grow up the same way. I’m going to be something. Something they can look up too and say wow he is so successful and cool. Kind of a corny thought if you ask me but I couldn’t bear the thought of them not having a role model. That day was a turning point in my life I had dropped school, I was working a minimum wage job, and I was about to move out and possibly work at Meijer for the rest of my life.
After a few years in the workforce, I realized that I must not spend any more of my youth on entry-level jobs that hold little to no meaning to me. Now is the time to advance myself and to explore endless possibilities with the right education. Therefore, I enrolled myself in Sinclair Community College. Every day, Sinclair astounds me with their commitment to prepare students for a bright future. Choosing a major is stressful but I must have a clear path to the finish line.
You are no longer burdened with the negative situation, and in addition to that you are strengthened by a new positive force”. I began trying to always to see the good in every possible situation in an early age, growing up neither of my parents attended college, my father was not even fortunate enough to graduate high school.That being so money has always been tight around the house. Being the youngest as well, I watched my siblings struggle throughout high school and never enrolling in college because it's not something that was our main priority with bills due and food needing to be put on the table. Most of my life and till this day I watch my family struggle though this may sound like a broken record education
