I thought this would be a good opportunity because it would give me a chance to interact with youngsters in an academic setting. I cherish working with kids each chance that I can. While I was volunteering/judging, I learned numerous things from the children I worked with. I was truly amazed to see their genuine interest and desire to learn science at such a young age. Children learn rapidly, at a youthful age so I had an incredible chance to see that directly.
As you can see I have learned many things through 4-H that I may have never learned if it weren’t for this amazing program. I would not be the person I am today without 4-H. 4-H is my life (I am a “4-H Nerd” as Mrs. Kindra says). 4-H is not just a club or program but a family, a family that will always be there for me. 4-H is a place where I am free to be myself. I love meeting new people who share the same interests and passions as I do.
When discussing how Jerri manages her school and daily life, she said, "I really enjoy learning and see it as an opportunity and a privilege. Sounds corny, but it 's true. I find that I am able to perform well in online courses because I am self-driven and I am dedicated to learning something along the way, not just finishing." She is an inspiration and many students can benefit by adopting her approach.
Interning at the Green Room Community Theatre didn’t feel like work, it was an amazingly fun experience with great instructors and interns. My expectations going in on the first day were more than exceeded especially after I met David Townsend which is an incredible role model. He is so passionate about what he does and I hope one day I will feel the same way about my career choice. I couldn’t have been happier with where I chose to intern. I met so many amazing interns that I hope come back and intern at the Green Room again just as I hope to next summer, we all got along so well and there was never a dull moment between us.
I was already in a scholarship program that requires a lot of volunteer hours, but I was mainly spending them elsewhere. Chi Omega not only gives me the opportunity to take part in activities on campus, but also helps me gain experience in helping plan events. Although all of the required events are somewhat daunting, I have so much enjoyed the busy whirlwind of this semester with my sisters. Also, getting involved with my community has been such a rewarding process. Whether it was volunteering at Abba’s Tables or helping with Make-A-Wish, my heart is full from giving back with my fellow Chi
I first met Kelsey when the two of us joined cross-country the summer before our freshman year. Back then, I never would have guessed that we would end up being such close friends. I am so glad we did. Kelsey is an inspiration to be around, filling any atmosphere with positivity. Even in the toughest situations, the hardest cross-country workouts, Kelsey is able to bring out the fun in a situation.
Overall I think I did a good job and enjoyed doing this and have become more comfortable giving speeches already. For my next speeches I 'm excited to see what other problems emerge and what issues I can fix and improve on. I know that there are a lot of other areas that I am excited to talk about and share because I am passionate about a lot of
My first semester as an RA at Ithaca College has come and gone with its own unique set of challenges, lessons, and experiences. Over the past four and a half months I have adjusted to a new kind of college experience, formed many new relationships, and can honestly look back at it all and say I am truly gratified and appreciative of the opportunity given to me. All of these factors have driven my decision to try and further my role with Reslife and pursue a position as an Apartment Assistant. There is an abundance of obvious reasons as to why I, or anyone else for that matter, would be interested in working as an AA. It is clearly a nicer living environment compared to the average room in the Res Halls providing more freedom and privacy.
The fact that learning never stops, that you work and collaborate with some of the smartest minds around, and the uniqueness of each patient gets me very eager to enroll in a challenging DPT program with proven student success. I am very thankful for the experience I’ve had so far observing physical therapy and studying the sciences in my undergrad. I don’t think as many other careers are so open to allow students into their workspace and I look forward to one day being able to spark another young student’s interest in rehab therapy. Before my sophomore year in high school, there was little I knew about the physical therapy field but since then I have spent a great deal of time observing physical therapists and from all that I’ve learn I know that I want to become a physical
I am lucky to have met her and learn from her. She contributed to my growth this quarter, both as a nurse and as a human. Saying goodbye to her and other volunteers was more difficult that I had expected. I will hopefully be volunteering again during spring quarter because of the amazing community at St. Francis House. This class, my community clinical, and service learnings has opened my heart towards others in ways I did not even know was possible.
