He didn’t understand why everyone was being so unkind and inconsiderate towards him. So he decided to make a change. I think the world is ok you just have to have the right influences and be around the right people. I have a lot of inspirational people in my life and and I view them as important because I get most of my motivation from them. I view my parents as inspirational because they try to help others and that influences me to help others just like Scott’s parents .
I will be a first-generation college student next fall, and I know that I will be successful because I have always been able to overcome the obstacles I face. The challenge of moving to a new country, struggling to survive, and learn a new language have all led to who I am today, and for that, I feel I am a better person. Your investment in me today will certainly help bring a brighter future for me
Being cheer captain is a very important job not only is it important, but it comes with many responsibilities. Cheerleading itself is a very special privilege that people all around the world get to have the opportunity to do. Making the cheer team is one of the most exciting times of one’s life but becoming captain would be once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that would be a pleasure of anyone. Becoming cheer captain would give me the opportunity to be a good image to the squad, showcase my leadership abilities, and motivate my squad to spread spirit all throughout the school. When I think of a cheer captain I think of someone who gets along with every member of the team and is well liked by every last person on the team to include the coaches.
Although I was able to pass the class, and the passing grade on my AP test meant I got my grade boosted to an ‘A’ automatically, the failure I felt in the first couple of months was unlike anything I had experienced at that point. If I had not been desperate to find a better way to study, I wouldn’t have discovered that music soundtrack, and I might never have discovered Sierra Boggess and her powerful quotes. Even though I wasn’t happy at the time with my abysmal test and quiz scores, I’m glad I was able to learn this lesson that I am already enough, as it has changed my entire outlook on life so much. Now the next time I’m disappointed with a test score, or angry with myself for messing something up, I will be able to remind myself that I am always
For my brother I'm sure it was the same, he has grown as well. My emotions were bad at the time, but as I got older the more understanding it was. Change is something most people have to go through, but I needed it. Making new friends was the hardest part about the move. Being social is not my calling but this should be easy for others.
He has gotten me to become a very influential respectful youngman, and got me to do things I don't think I could ever really do in life. And when things get harder or easier for me in life the things that he taught me I will always remember and never forget them this gave me a huge understanding of the people that just wanna become better, and those who dont wanna get better and achieve nothing. This goes from my intro from In These Girls, Hope is a Muscle. This shows how the captain of the team was pushing the team, and my personal mentor would be my coach on the way he pushed my team to finally win a state championship from the last state title being over 30 years ago
I may not receive straight As, but I am proud and honored to say that I earned my grades through my persistent work. For many of my peers, they cannot say the same. Honor is something you work for and is not gained through dishonesty. Many adults would describe me as passionate, which is a result of my strong opinions relating to certain topics and activities. Being passionate about a subject is often seen as a negative, but I tend to disagree.
They are one of my core values because my admiration for them is out of this world. This may sound a little generic but it is because I have so much respect for them. Instead of focusing on themselves, my parents focus all their attention on my siblings and I to make sure that we have a better life. Above all, they support my decisions and they are there for me in both the best and worst of times. My two brothers are not always tolerable, but I have a lot of love for them as well.
Knowing I had more potential, I pushed myself even further and my talents were recognized by the new coach my senior year. I achieved my goal of starting every game and played a majority of the eighty minutes of regulation time. My determination to get better and overcome my obstacles paid off my senior year when I awarded second-team
I began my volunteering hours when I could, so that way I knew I would have a lot of time to finish them. My family have always encouraged me to improve as a man, and volunteering truly fits into that classification. As I keep getting more established, I now realize that helping other people truly makes you feel better about yourself as it serves to develop a sense of empathy for others. Volunteering has impacted me since I realize that when I help other people out, it lights up their day, and they truly appreciate getting assistance from another person that thinks about them. There have been numerous impacts that
Although I work hard for everything I do and am always dedicated, I learned that hard work and dedication are much stronger when goals are made. I also realized you can learn just as much from watching as doing. As I prepare for college, I will carry this into being a better student to my professors. Finally, I am grateful for the huge support system that helped me accomplish my goal. My CORHA family, my mother and father, sisters, and friends were always there for advice and support; this is a blessing that is beyond any price tag.
There’s no way to understand your life–the privileges you hold–without understanding the past. You must be thankful for all the things your loved ones have done for you, and I’m sure that I am. I can’t imagine my life if I were in my parents’ shoes, if I faced the struggles and hardships they did, and I know I wouldn’t have the courage to be as decisive as they were and are. Their perseverance and determination make me content with my life now, knowing that it could be much worse. Their experiences motivate me to capitalize on what they gave me–to become something.
I was able to increase the benefit of task management but still struggled to maintain the efficiency that comes along with that due to losing a case manager and taking on the entire case load myself. Understanding different perspectives has always come easy to me, however, learning to quite myself when my integrity is challenged because of someone else’s perspective was a definite challenge to me. I felt that the objective of learning what effective leadership can accomplish was the one that was successful. After shadowing Barb, I learned effective communication techniques, how to inspire the staff with vision and drive and how to have integrity in the midst of turmoil. Applying this practicum to becoming a baccalaureate-prepared nurse will come in time.
