To fill my baccalaureate requirement, I registered for Media Writing. For that same semester, I was put on a waitlist for American Sign Language course. As the summer progressed, I was still on the waitlist for a class. Through the chaos of seeing what was available, I signed up for another communication course, Mass Media and Society with Prof. Meredith. Mass Media and Society made me hesitant to take more classes in the field.
Throughout this semester, I have had many struggle when it came down to doing an assignment for ENC1102. When it comes down to my growth, I have noticed throughout my papers that various struggle I had in the past, are now not as difficult for me. One of the main examples of this is being able to clearly state my thesis. The thesis statement has always been an issue for me because I never really knew how to get my point across clearly through a thesis statement. When doing the proposal, I had to figure out how to properly state my thesis and have it linked into the rest of the paper.
A few times throughout my life I had told myself that I would complete a college degree by a certain age. First, by thirty and then the following decades. At each of these milestones, I had failed to keep my promise to myself. I will now look into why I failed to achieve this goal. The first reason that I failed in obtaining my degree was that I did not formally set out the short, medium and long-range goals and steps that I would need to achieve each goal.
I don’t mean to show off but I can’t really resist the temptation because I worked my way out all the way from the bottom to this point. I’m not brilliant, my intelligence isn’t innate then why should you have me as student in your school? Secondly, in my school, all students with good grades will be offered to be moved into international classes where studying is being conducted bilingually which is in Indonesian and in English. A student can only be offered this opportunity twice for the whole 3 years of senior high school. I was offered this chance twice but I rejected both of them.
After I was out of school for around a month after my ACL surgery it was hard to catch up but It was not impossible. I didn 't try enough because I already thought my grade was too far gone and that rolled over into the next semester. After the school year I was very disappointed in myself. I never have failed a class in my life but here I was applying for summer school. So I redirected my disappointment and decided to excel at summer school.
The word ‘leadership’ appears on nearly every job application, under ‘Qualities Preferred’. Although I believe that I am a natural leader, I was not successful in landing a supervisory role in a company that I had been with for three years. The near-miss propelled me to strive more. I signed myself up for Sinclair’s Ohio Fellows Leadership Program to learn more on how to become a leader. The program is based on teachings from Robert K. Greenleaf’s twenty-eight-page essay called, “The Servant as Leader”.
Reflecting on how I have gotten where I am, I remembered a first-year undergraduate version of myself. I was a science major succeeding at everything but my science classes. I considered switching my major, I even considered switching universities, but I decided to stand up to the challenge that I had accepted upon matriculation and simply try harder. I admittedly didn’t have a strong science
When I first started Collinwood High School, they didn’t have my transcript over from Shaw so for a month I had to take ninth grade classes. I was barely going to classes, I would leave school and go home or to the store. I got suspended twice before I got my transcript. Once I did get them I started going to classes but that was long after I started skipping classes and leaving school to go home. I messed up the first and second quarter grades was terrible I was just an honor roll student at Shaw, now at Collinwood I have F’s.
For years I put all this behind me, I pushed cps out of my mind and caseworkers and social workers did not even exist in my world, that is until college. As I was searching through the list of majors offered at a nearby university I happened upon the “Social work” tab, I almost kept scrolling and avoided it completely, but I’m glad I did not. In my life I had always seen social work strictly as cps, more specifically the removal of children in cps. I was ignorant and did not realize the entire spectrum that social work is on and the vital role they play in communities, the more I begin studying and learning about the field the more I fell in love with it. I feel that my experiences will both help and hinder me, in a sense I have a deep understanding of what many people whom will need a social worker are going through, but because of this I will also have a harder time ensuring I do not over relate than some of my fellow classmates will.
Its level of difficulty cannot be denied, what everyone else assumed is somehow true but I thought of this subject as a "hurdled race", there may be obstacles along the way, but the ultimate goal is to finish. I see other people 's impression about "research" and they seem scared like its an evil entity I admit I had that impression too, so I told myself: "think on the bright side! this is not the end of the world!" Well.. Year after year thousands of students graduate from college and they all went through the same process I am about to go, they did it! So why can 't I?
I have included copies of some letters of recommendation that were written to the university from my current employer as to my character, dedication and passion. I am asking the committee to please reconsider my request and allow me to continue my education with Grand Canyon University and to be part of the caregiving community in New
Throughout the course of the last few months, I’ve been thinking about continuing my education. I’ve looked at different schools, but none of them seemed like the perfect fit. One day I came across a commercial for the American Women’s College, and I decided to look it up. What I found, was an institution built, on a foundation of educating and empowering women. Women, just like me.
By the end of my freshman year of high school I knew this was now something I wanted to pursue and took every academic and shadowing opportunity I could to ensure this. Upon graduating high school, I enrolled at the University of Oklahoma with a clear-cut idea of what I wanted to pursue. I declared a major in biology and began my academic career. During this time I was able to continue shadowing, but experienced a slight set back. Like many individuals, it took me some time to adapt to the college lifestyle and my GPA suffered from that.
Narration Essay I just finished High school, so I was ready to go to college. I had thoughts about the subject at the time, because I heard that college is harder than High school. All I can think about is how should I go about starting out in college? I could ask some questions while I’m there. I have to take this necessary path for a better life for me.
Me and my mom had to go to kealakehe school to see what I need for me to get in this class and they told me that I needed a state ID. I went to the DMV and I got my ID they I was registered for the GED. After waiting for couple weeks I have to take a test for math and readying to see what class I 'm supposed to be in because there was different level of classes. But as I was euphoric of doing what I can do to get my GED I was most likely over getting that GED because the person that had my case had no chance of answering my phone calls an I wasn 't moving anywhere with my education but I ended up going back for a little while then just never go after that I ended up staying home the rest of that school year. As summer came I wanted to make right choices so I decided to call the school and ask for the regaitor and I asked what I can do for me to make my credits up for my junior year and she told me that there where correspondence classes I can take but it costed money but for me an my family had put money into the corresponding classes and I got it an I have and I 'm trying to finish it so I can walk the line.
