Looking back, I recall that I was accepted to go to a mortuary science program in Boston to be a mortician upon graduation. With enthusiasm, I was planning to take the train to school. Believe me, I worked with the guidance counselor and thought, and this was my plan. Sadly, I remember the day my father told me that they could not afford to send me to Boston and instead, they wanted me to attend a local community college first to take classes, and they would help me in the next couple years. Thinking back, I was crushed; I expected to be able to attend the college of choice for my friends.
My dutie for my health science was HOSA. I was co president of HOSA and my duty was to lead the club and we did community service.

On Monday October 3rd the club was taught about reaching goals, on Tuesday October 4th they were taught about diversity, on Wednesday October 5th they were taught about being ready for the future, and on Thursday October 6th they were taught about personal characteristics.
1. PD Reflection 1.1 Key Learning and Reflection Introduction I had always wanted to lead a strategic project – to be the “go-to” person and receive the accompanying accolades. But I soon realised that responsibility comes with risk. I aim to expand on this experience using the Atkins and Murphy Model of Reflective Learning (1994, cited in PD1-SG-7A Study Guide, 2016: 37). Description My first project, as a manager, was to implement the company’s Broad-Based Black Economic Empowerment program.
I have grown up watching “Discovery and National Geography channel” programs showing how Engineer’s solving inscrutable problems encountered during the construction of High rise buildings such as “Taipei World Financial Centre “or projects like “Rebuilding New York City 's Subway”. It made me mesmerized how we drive connections from nature to engineer these gravity deifying structures and how these modern structures are changing the face of earth. This sparked a wave of renewed curiosity and interest in understanding the engineering related to structure’s and I studied tenaciously to take Civil Engineering as under-graduate major. At the very outset of my undergraduate program, I formulated a plan for my academic development, outlining the objectives that I must achieve at different stages of the program. With due efforts, I have attained almost all of them.
Thereafter, Wes's mother decided to move to Bronx, New York after his father's distressing death looking for better environmental influences. Then, as Wes puts it "My mother saw Riverdale as a haven, a place where I could escape my neighborhood and open my horizons. But for me, it was where I got lost” (48). In other words, he is saying his mother was determined that no matter how much the world around them seemed ready to crumble, she would definitely able to see him going through it. She wanted him to enter in the Riverdale School to get a better education molding his academic level but he refused to get in
I re-took a chemistry course this summer that I originally had taken during my first semester of college. I wanted to re-take this course (along with several other courses I’ve taken this summer and this fall term) specifically to improve my GPA and to prove to myself that I could handle the course requirements during Plebe year at the Academy. During the first exam for this class, I was out of town with my family but my professor gave me permission to take the exam online. Before taking this exam my parents said that I should cheat on the exam and that if I didn’t I was naïve. They even tried to argue that most students, even at service academies, cheat on exams.
On July 11, 2008, Stephen Harper officially apologizes for the residential school which is called reconciliation. People did feel heard but it was not enough. The movie “Rabbit Proof Fence” made in 2002, it showed that the half castes’ children were taken from their parent and got sent to residential school. Someone in the upper government has controlled power over who will be sent to school, and who will be sent to another place. But it was all done to make the American’s population more spread out.

I initially started my MBA journey six years ago. Consequently, due to the demands of life, it was best that I discontinue my studies. Deciding to return to school has proven to be an even harder decision than leaving. Nonetheless, once I weighed my options, I had no other choice except return! Making the decision to return to school was mainly to complete what I started.
