I have grown through my American Literature job shadow and my college research research that allowed me to take a huge step forward In preparing for college. My job shadow project required me to narrow down my choices to three different choices. When I was looking for a career to do the assignment on, I realized that I don't know what career I would like to pursue once I go to college. After getting suggestions by other students, I did further research on careers such as psychology, Family therapist and auto mechanic.I now know some of the required courses
On a day like this I think to myself what does life have in store for me? Here I’m going to write about what I hope as I begin taking Social Work courses. I hope to pass all of my courses and graduate one day with my bachelor’s degree from Heritage University. I also hope that after graduating Heritage, I find a job so I can save up money and attend a master’s program because college is not cheap. I want to attend Walla Walla University and graduate from there as well, with a Master’s in Social Work.
I am continuing to learn things in my freshman year that I believe will prepare me well for my future endeavors. I am able to focus on my current major while still learning how to write better, solve difficult problems, and learning more about culture and the world which we live in. I am confident that with a B.A. degree and my broad range of knowledge, I will have flexibility if I choose to pursue a different career. Employers will also realize that someone with a liberal arts degree has that range of knowledge of different subjects.
While in my junior year of college I decided to take a class, Queer Literature. I was hoping this class could answer some of the questions I had in regards to my sexuality. All of my hopes were exceeded; the class taught me about the history and strides made to attempt to achieve equality for the LBGTQIA+ community. Queer Literature felt like my first step over the rainbow, it introduced me to sexulity and gender for the first time. Before taking Queer Literature I never knew that there was a term for identifying with the sex you were born into.
Now, to end everything off with a good impression. I hope you will consider me to be part of National Junior Honor Society with everything I have stated in my paper. This year for me was an experiment with the clubs. I had only joined a couple because I wanted to make sure I was not too overwhelmed, but I was not so I will be considering to join one or two more to make my life a little crazier. I do intend to do more for my community in the near future and gain even more work experience.
After working a few different places and being laid off I soon decided it was time to look toward my future. I returned to Highline Community College I did not know what I wanted to do after school but was more focused on each class and who I could learn. Towards the end of my time at Highline I took an introduction class to psychology, I feel in love with the idea of being able to help people. I choose Central Washington University’s psychology program to receive my Bachelor’s degree. During my senior year while attending Central Washington University I narrowed down what Master’s program what wanted to enroll in to help with the career that I want to have.
I learned a lot about the different organizations offered to pre-Occupational Therapy students and students who are in the program. I only knew about one program but was not aware of the different positions I could apply for. Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) and Phi Theta Epsilon (PTE) are both organizations I would like get involved with. I now know that I am able to join SOTA as a pre- Occupational Therapy student, but I still wonder what grade point average PTE considers for their organization. Do they look at your grade point average prior to the program or your first semester in the program?
My plan is to work with them to develop something that works for both offices (as opposed to me telling them what to do). I believe I have a good sense of what you’d like to see from these colleges, but if there’s anything else you feel I need to know, please share. I’m also reaching out to education on a more targeted proposal and have gotten feedback from nursing on what they can and can’t handle. I have meetings schedule with the new folks over in COFA and engineering next week, and a meeting with social work is pending. To that end, it will probably be a few weeks into the semester before we’re ready to launch anything.

Students today may already have a plan to go to college or may need more time to think of what they are going to do.

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.
When I am done with college education, I want to help improve my community by using the skills I learned. In college I will be improving my writing, math, science, history skills. Being a cop or a detective, require these skills. All are necessary for the job I plan on taking on. With the classes I am taking in college, I will be preparing for my future job.
In my first semester, I served as the Intern for the Mayor’s Chief of Staff in Green Bay. I assisted in the day to day work of the Mayor and his Chief of staff. I took advantage of my role to make the city of Green Bay a better place to live. This semester, I am currently an intern in the Economic Development Department for the City of Green Bay. I get to work with GIS programs and businesses in the community.
Kyle Kling 14 October 2014 English 100-24 Professor Hall Academics to Six Flags Commitment and hard work can pay off for you in school in many ways. Those two things for me brought me to Six Flags Great America for a class field trip. In order for the students to go on the field trip they had to earn a 3.0 GPA or better. For me, this was really hard to accomplish because I was only an average student back then. As time went on in school, I realized if you put your mind to something you can accomplish it.
This is important because I would like to maintain the connections that I already have in some psychology labs and be able to continue working in them. More importantly, however, staying here this summer would mean that, while many of the classes do not go towards my major, I could spend more time taking interdisciplinary classes, which would allow me to expand my current perspective of the world. This is very advantageous when it comes to applying to graduate schools, and being a psychologist in general, as I will be better able to relate to those in circumstances that differ from my own. My father works ground maintenance at Macomb Community College and, due to the lack of snow, has not received as much overtime as he normally does. As my parents are divorced and I am the dependent of my father, this means that it will be more difficult this year for me to pay for school than it has been in previous years, which is why I would be very grateful to receive this
This related to me at this time of life, because I am in the middle of figuring out what I want to do for my career. Reading this article helped me realize that even if I change my mind in the middle of college, I can still succeed at what I change my major to. The change will
