Just about a year ago, my seventh grade class took a trip to Pigeon Key, FL to spend two days at a Marine Science Center. My school encouraged every student to go on the trip and after hours and hours of driving, we were greeted by many enthusiastic staff members excited to take us on the boat to Pigeon Key. When the boat arrived at the dock, I was immediately overwhelmed by the gorgeous scenery. Water wrapped around the island like a blanket, leaving only a small space for the buildings. At the time, there were a small amount of buildings on the island, housing a museum, multiple sleeping quarters, a small kitchen and outdoor dining room, a classroom, and other tiny structures.
The Coast Guard and Navy were my first options, for my love of water. Water is familiar and calming. Because senior year was starting, I went to the recruiting office and signed up to join the Navy. After completing all the paperwork,
The 6th grade Wildcat Training Camp was a success due to the amount of activities we had plan for our students. To begin with, students had the opportunity to use their scientific processes and habits of mind to solve problems by working collaboratively with their groups in a science contest. They had the chance to create/design and built a boat that would hold as much weight as possible and still float. Students’ had to use their creativity to make sure their boat were stabilized in the ocean and resist sinking. Then the strongest that stays afloat will win the contest.

I thought it was striking that marine mammals were the only ones who returned to the oceans. From there I desired to learn more about marine mammals and their role in the ecosystem. That year I also had the chance to go SCUBA diving for the first time. It was an incredible and life-changing experience; I felt like I was on another planet. That is when I decided to
I didn’t know about the Naval Academy until just a couple years ago, so I had my heart set on becoming a police officer. Becoming a police officer meant that I could protect and serve my community, but becoming a Naval Officer means that I can protect and serve the entire United States. If I become a student of the United States Naval Academy, I would be fully prepared to serve my country and then when my time has been served, whether it be five years or twenty years, I would
I enjoy helping others; I found that through my volunteer service, however, a Lifeguard needs other characteristics to succeed. In early spring of my sophomore year, I began training for the physical demands of the Water Safety Training Class and its prerequisites. Through daily practice, I built my endurance to swim three hundred yards continuously. I concentrated on one dreaded timed event that taxed my physical stamina. It entailed swimming twenty yards, retrieving a ten-pound brick from deep water, and then returning within one minute and forty seconds.
I had been anticipating today since the beginning of the trip. From the start I was excited and anxious to work with the Cromarty Fishery. After the events of today, I am glad to say that it all went well. It has been a long day, so I will start from the beginning. Michelle and I gotten ready and left the house at 7:30 to walk to campus.
My first day at Miami Dade College is an important event in my life. For me it is an unforgettable day in my life, since it was a goal proposed and fulfilled. College life is a life of freedom. I was waiting on the day when my university life could start, the expected day finally arrived, and it was a very light day the sky cleared. When she arrives at the Miami Dade College, a person named Michelle gave me a tour around the college to explain to me where are the parking lots, the offices of the councilors and the classrooms where they taught to the subjects.
During the summer, I had an eagerness to find a job; I wanted to keep myself occupied, so I applied everywhere, not concerning myself of the job description. I even applied for a janitorial positions; the thought of money was in my head. After applying to multiple jobs, I finally got accepted into American Swim Academy. I thought the job required a lifeguard, but little did I know, I had applied to be a swim instructor; I applied to a numerous job positions that I forgot what I applied for. They had assigned me classes with the skill levels of the child; I had to basically teach kids to swim.
I run the Cross-Training fitness group on campus, as well as being a Kayak Leader. Using the skills I have developed through the Duke of Edinburgh Bronze, Silver and Gold Award, I lead hikes and camping expeditions at my school. I love to go on adventures, and I feel prepared and excited for my university experience next year. My first big adventure came when I moved to Canada. I was born in Great Yarmouth, England, and I lived there
