I’ve spent hundreds of hours working with my peers, building friendships while working toilsomely to perfect one show each year. When we weren’t on the field practicing, we were performing at football games or at community events, bringing the community together with a sense of pride. Being a part of the marching band has taught me to put the betterment of my peers over myself and I have made it my goal to make the people around me the best that they
My instructor Jennifer Jackson said this time “ Bravo! This is one of the strongest revisions I’ve seen yet.” This essay gave me so much confidence and made me feel I can actually write something interesting. Also, I sent my paper to The Writing Center, after I submitted my paper to my instructor to see any other mistakes I could have to improve my writing skills. I received a very good feedback from them after three or four days of submitting my paper, they said, “ my paper was pretty good. I needed to work on some minor mistakes such as spacing, omitting the work “that” when I did not need
Maisie would tell you that over the past years she has done this a lot. “After years of working with various casts, you learn a lot about working in a team, and working with other people. You can never be selfish in theater. You have to make choices for the benefit of the group, and I think that has helped me become a good team member in life”. Maisie tells us that the outcome of all the hard work and had such a positive outcome on her life.
Since I have been home I have been trying to explain my trip to the people around me and every time I do it always comes out, I have no idea how to explain it, I have no words. I have never felt so impacted by three weeks of my life I think back to Rwanda and it seems like a lifetime ago. It was such a surreal, changing experience that it feels like a dream. Every time I see somebody wearing something that reminds me of Rwanda I get sad but then I get happy because it means that it wasn’t just a dream. I still listen to Spotify playlist and think about the boys I spent most of my time with and try to reflect on every individual day as if I were going through the trip again.
Community service is not only about receiving hours to put on a resume, but it is something you do to guide others and make them feel better. An example of this was when I was part of the MLK day of service at Stockton University two years in a row where I sewed pillows and pins to support the unfortunate; this was a great experience where I was able to make new friends and contribute to the society.Service is not only about being part of large organizations, but it is also about doing small deeds for others, like staying after school and contributing to the club even if it is not mandatory. I also was part of Project Green where I picked up garbage on the beach and planted marram grass. I am the type of person that likes helping the elderly and the needy; so when I go to India, giving clothes and food to the boys and girls who have nothing to eat and sleep with an empty stomach is a priority to me during my trip. The Atlantic County Library is also somewhere I volunteer; helping young children read books and organizing craft days on the weekends.
I am now currently the president of the Filipino student association at Houston Baptist University. Many of the leadership qualities I have acquired through wrestling is applied daily to the club I represent on campus. While these transferable values show great importance in sport, these values are also highly desirable in society because leadership foreshadows the potential impact the individual will make in the
All of us rehearse for long hours and weeks for PCN. The end result for this PCN was spectacular and we couldn't have been any happier. At the curtain call for PCN I felt very proud as we bowed for each dance and committee we were in. PCNs are the most remarkable events within PASA for me. Being in a Filipino organization is one way I am able to identify as a Filipino, and PCNs are a huge part.
Until I experienced the headache waiting to be a resident until my husband status of his citizenship completed that caused and affected me living in the U.S. and could not go back to Indonesia. After I lived in LA for a couple of months, I saw a lot of things that I had not seen the first or second time. For example, in a restaurant there was a guy who asked me if I was a Filipino and I said “no,” but he kept telling me how he hated his supervisor in the military who was a Filipino. This white guy got angry at me because of a bad experience he had had in the military. I left him and said, “I am not Filipino.” He had projected his anger on me while I was by myself in a restaurant and had approached me rudely.
With no doubts, multiple people face with events that have significant meanings for them and there are many experiences that bring drastic turnings on the long life road. For me, this turning was made when I was told that my government chose to study in the United State Of America instead of the United Kingdom where I previously applied to study. Though enough time has passed, I remember this day like it was just yesterday. The feeling of excitement because of the upcoming journey was mixing with uncertainty and fear. Realizing that I will be in the country where currently I have no relatives and friends was more than frightening for me.
A personal journey experience of the formative process that I would like to share in this paper it’s an important experience that made me grow within about knowing ‘God is with me all the time’ and He really ‘knows me from within’ even my thought. And it changed whole my life. This process happened 18 years ago when I was a novice, but it is fresh even now. It’s on about my 4 months exposure of second year novice that made me ‘rupture’ from a close and weak person become who am I, today. In 1999, January to April, I was alone gone to the north of Thailand, Chiang Rai for my exposure, living with tribal people on the mountain.
I have a natural enthusiasm and like to promote causes I believe in. I would love the opportunity to help promote the University of Dayton by working as a tour guide or helping in the Admissions office. I like to stay busy, and juggle lots of activities. As a member of student government, I chaired Homecoming Week both junior and senior years. Homecoming at PND has many traditions the students and alumni hold very special to them, including dress-up theme days all week, powder-puff football, olympics, trivia contests, the pep rally, homecoming court, the football game, and the dance, all of which I was in charge of.
Community members of all ages enter their artwork, baked goods, photography and other homemade products in pursuit of coveted blue ribbons. Many non-profit and charity-based organizations participate in activities at the fair. The fairgrounds can even be used as staging sites and rescue locations during catastrophic emergencies. The network of California fairs has a significant impact on
Isabella Tan is a hard working and motivated freshman with a list of possibilities in her eyes. She succeeds in all she does and receives straight A’s by studying persistently, and trying her best.

She sacrifices her time during hours of helping out in Key Club as a freshman representative and tech editor.
For example, I am an active member of the FPC band. I have met a lot of new people being in that club that helped inspire me to make a bigger impact in my community. As I begin volunteering more time outside of school I realized how much I enjoyed dedicating my time to help those around me. Motivating others to do the same then became my goal for my future. My intelligence and intellect are also very important to me and thus have led me to this situation.
My junior year, I was awarded the outstanding junior award. I received this award for active participation, meeting attendance, and overall class grades. I was so excited and felt so proud to get this award. As a senior, it was time to give up my office to a younger FFA member who could fill the position after I graduated. We do this at our annual chapter banquet where awards are given, and scholarships are given.
