I started to obtain near perfect grades, which certainly made me stand out in my class and as an individual. I was recognized in the A Honor Roll every semester in my high school career, and confidently will make it in both semesters this year. While I was in 9th grade, our class was assigned an all year independent research project (Science) that had a high stake, a $500 scholarship. My independent research project was based off texting and driving. After seven months of solid work and determination, my name was announced as the winner of the $500 scholarship.
I read this book many times during the summer, and after this encounter, I suddenly found that what he said was very relatable to the idea of the book. In “Ender 's Game”, Ender was only 8 years old (I think) when he was sent to Command School to be a commander in the humans vs. buggers war. Most people thought that the whole idea of letting a 8 year old child be the person their fate depends on was preposterous. Ender knew that the people were right, but he believed in himself and his cause. He finally defeated the buggers, and led the humans to victory.
Normal days for Evan included taking anxiety medicine, watching Netflix, and being interrogated by his mother. Evan had graduated high school early by earning as many high school credits as he could, in middle school. However, this caused even more anxiety to be pushed onto him. Since he was only fourteen, he took college courses online to begin the practice of law early.
Laconia Middle School was the local school for those that lived in Laconia. Knowing most of my classmates and having many friends I felt as though I was at a very good place in life. Attending school everyday was fun for me. I got to be in classes with my best friends, had some of my favorite teachers, worked out a wonderful schedule and played the sports I loved, but if anything middle school was especially important to me was when I began to pick up a fascination for history and also began to realize how the Bosnian War had affected me as a person. Seventh grade was the year I was asked to write an essay about my biggest fear.
Luis Marquez is a great student and inspiring role model, he has attended Global Campus since middle school.

His advice to future seniors is to “Do your homework and do not procrastinate.” Luis always turn in his homework or assignments on time because he learned to manage his time wisely through the years.
Over the weekend I interviewed a Platteville RA (Resident Assistant), because they generally have good advice to incoming classes. RA’s deal with any problem on their wing or the whole building when on call. Zach Hahn is the RA on the eastside of Southwest Hall on floor three. Scheduling an interview with this popular man was challenging, although the interview was brief he shared some valuable information. Incoming freshman should know what happens when a student must be written up, why the first month of school is the busiest time, and lastly what is the best part about being a RA.
In addition, I took my first advanced placement course during sophomore year: world history. World history had a notorious reputation on campus; everyone was afraid of the massive amounts of coursework. I decided to take world history, and I am so thankful that I did. I loved that class. I spent every weekend doing world history homework to prepare for the coming week.
My first year of school at the University of Arkansas was even more spectacular than I could have wished for. In the fall I participated in the Razorback Marching Band. It immersed me in Razorback traditions and helped me to feel welcome here so far from home. I made friends and learned how to allocate my time wisely for studying and getting homework done. I took the first two semesters of the Honors Humanities Project (H2P) and thoroughly enjoyed the subject.
This is always my preference – to get the most challenging part of school finished as early as possible. In my opinion, I was already in the best possible situation. The directors in his year spoke positively of him and our brief conversations had been extremely pleasant. I had heard rumors that Misha had wanted to hire a different stage manager, so part of me worried that Misha might not be completely satisfied with my assignment to his production. Yet, I was in an overall good place, excited to begin a new stage in my education: the thesis
Graduates will turn out successful and powerful. Having a college education is a proud accomplishment, because of all the hard work, sweat, and tears have paid off at the end. Marcus Mabry shares his thoughts in his article “Living in Two Worlds.” He shares his personal experience as a college student living at Stanford University and visiting his poor family every once in a while. In this reading, Marcus Mabry addresses, “It inspires within me a sense of tenacity and accomplishment that I hope every college graduate will someday possess.”
Aaron Sedrick is a senior at Joplin High School. He has made it his goal to graduate in the top 10% of his class with Honors. This ambitious goal is only a reflection of his dedication that permeates through the rest of his life, from waking up every morning at 5:20 am to get ready for LDS Seminary, to taking some of the most difficult courses his school offers. He attributes his ambition and dedication to his father, who started medical school just as he began kindergarten. This gave him the unique perspective of watching someone much older than him go through similar experiences and then succeed.
Antonin Gregory Scalia was born March 11, 1936 in Trenton, New Jersey. He was the only child in both his immediate and extended family which lead to high expectations of him by his family. He certainly lived up to those expectations; graduating first in his class at Xavier High School in Manhattan and valedictorian from Georgetown University in 1956. Then he went to Harvard Law School, meeting Maureen McCarthy in his last year. They got married in 1960 and had nine children together: Ann, Catherine, Christopher, Eugene, John, Matthew, Margaret, Mary, and Paul.
Hi Professor Fernandez, This is Kim Phuong Nguyen. I took your Chemistry 110 course Spring 2015 and I found it to be one of the most enjoyable courses I have ever taken. You may not remember me, as I often came into lab on Mondays when you were there. Chemistry has always been a more challenging course for me, but I was very proud of that A I received from your class.
I cannot thank you enough for the opportunity you gave me to work at the AAFA over the past couple weeks. I can genuinely tell you that the time I have spent working with you has been the most educational, worldly, and worth-while experience that an upcoming junior in high school can ever hope to accomplish during the summer. I learned more over the course of two weeks at the AAFA than I have ever before. The amount of proficiency that I have gained in international trade, manufacturing, and legislation on the hill is stupendous.

Despite his intellectual achievements, AP Frank remains to be extrinsically motivated by his mother. His mother, Mrs. AP Frank, coming from Korea, is obsessed with education of her son. Therefore, she enrolled her son to Winthrop, a highly-ranked and competitive public high school, and placed relentless pressure and expectations on him.
