Anyone who has ever worked hard has heard the saying, “It builds character.” For example, say someone went to college. They worked hard to graduate with a degree, and finally got their dream job. Two months in they get laid off. Their first job is gone, but still must move on.
I was still new here to DeWitt and I didn’t have many friends, one day after recess Lucas came up to me and whispered into my ear, “will you be my friend?” I said, “yes” with a giant smile on my face. We hung out everyday hours on end. I found Lucas to be a very nice, respectful, friend and I was lucky to have him as my best friend.
I want to tell you a story about something else. A real life lesson that I learned in school, something truly beneficial to my future. My senior year of high school taught me many things, however nothing compared to what I learned when I hit rock bottom that year. My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before.
I never thought I could handle you being away from me. It has been exactly 11 months and two days since you have left me on this Earth. I am doing well with my life right now. I’m finally a senior and I have a job. I have been doing fine in school, but I know for sure what you would say, “You can always do better”.
We all look forward to the day of graduation and the day we turn our dreams to reality some find it easy and some find it difficult. I remember being in high school two years ago and thinking about what I wanted to do after graduation as to -- whether I should go straight to nursing school or start off at a community college to eventually transfer to a four year university. In life, lots of students come across transitioning from high school to college to become successful in life and to achieve their goals. Some people find it easy or difficult to transition from high school to college. The reason for this is people fail to realize that high school is way different than college.
I am willing to pull through. What Has Been Your Most Rewarding Accomplishment? Honestly, completing college would be my biggest achievement. In my first year, I was struggling for the first semester, I had a hard time with my roommates who I had to live with, I had no choice, I couldn’t really pick.
My first semester of college I enrolled in a community college with my major listed as “General studies” because it sounds better than “Undecided.” I was straight out of a high school of less than 400 students and I was utterly clueless, and at the end of the semester my GPA reflected it. I knew that I would never succeed unless I
I am Juwan Clayton, a current sophomore and this is my second financial aid appeal letter, since attending Lock Haven University. When first coming to Lock Haven, things we 're difficult, a lot have change since then. I have made large strides in improving my intellect, habits, character since my last financial aid appeal. My Satisfactory Academic Progress have been progressing but at a normal student pace, I believe it will take one more semester to finally even out. So I do ask that all committee members who are reading my appeal letter, please keep a open mind and try to understand my reason for writing to you.
One of the proudest moments of my life came in 2012 when I received my Associate of Arts degree and graduated as the class valedictorian. I realize that for some people earning a two year degree may seem like no big deal, but the fact that I did it while incarcerated at San Quentin made it extraordinary for me. Before coming to prison, I had failed at my two previous attempts at junior college without earning a single unit. It would take getting locked up and separated from society,before I 'd start to buckle down. I was 33-years old when I completed my first Coastline College course in Geology and received an A.

I have chosen this topic because many younger students attend college out of high school and do not know what they are setting themselves for when they graduate from college. “You’re looking for colleges that deliver good value—a high quality education at an affordable price” (Bodar, 286). You do not need
This inspired Dennis to go back to college and earn his degree to get out of his rut. I can relate to this. Prior to this class, I did not attend school for two years. Completely lost, I have been working multiple dead end jobs looking for my future career. I turned back to school after giving up on many different leads.
