Now don’t get me wrong, I did have a good high school experience; however this isn’t about the good times I had. I want to tell you a story about something else. A real life lesson that I learned in school, something truly beneficial to my future. My senior year of high school taught me many things, however nothing compared to what I learned when I hit rock bottom that year. My second semester of school I decided that because I already knew where I was going to college I didn’t have to try as hard in school and work as hard for my grades as I had before.
Let’s go back to five years ago. Things happened during my high school period, really changed me a lot. When I was fifteen years old, my family move from China to America, and that was my first time came to America. To be honest, the first few months of my high school life is a torture for me. Why I describe that period time as a torture?
The learning curve was hard, and I didn’t make the cut for Freshman Region. This really made me feel down, as just the year before, I was the 2nd overall chair in my class. For a few weeks, my confidence really wavered; However, with the encouragement of some upperclassmen, I eventually decided to move on to the next thing. All-Region, the real deal was only a month away. By using my failure as motivation, I discovered a work-ethic I never knew I had, practicing more than I had before.
He always believed in his work and ideas that’s why he did not sell Facebook to Yahoo as it offered to buy Facebook for $100 million but at this time his team was against his decision because they thought selling was a good deal and within a year his entire team left the company. He did not quit here as he believes in himself an d hired a new team and nowadays Facebook is the most used social network site across the world. He never stop believing in his dreams Mark Zuckerberg has millions of followers. He was role model for millions of people around the
I put more work into it than anything else the entire year, and, to the best of my memory, our final grade was a 98. It was the first film I made that I was truly proud of. About the same time of year, my class was introduced to the Madison Awards, which is an
In my eighth grade year I was attending tournament held at Western Kentucky University. I won two of my three events and was debated when I got second in the other. I remember my mother saying to me, “Jack, you did so well today, yet you are not even excited about it. That really makes me sad, I thought my son would have much humility than that.” That right there… hurt. It was a true wake-up call of why I do speech and debate.
As for the relay race we came first with a couple of seconds to spare. In grade eight I joined a track and field, outside of school called Ottawa Lions, and it was great while it lasted but I quit the club because it was too expensive my parents told me. So after middle school I came to Glebe collegiate institute. It was very scary at first, but then I joined the football team as a freshman and I met a lot of new people. I was one of the few freshmans that got to play in a varsity football team, and since I was under 100 pounds and the shortest guy on the team, II was very proud for myself.
I started working with my instructional material a week before February 11. My cooperating teacher allowed me conduct a dry run to Grade 7 – B students few days before February 11. The dry run was not that successful because we didn’t finished the entire learning task that should be done so on the next day I did some revisions with my lesson plan. Fortunately, the final demonstration teaching was rescheduled so I had plenty of time to make my lesson plan and instructional materials better. My next dry run happened two weeks before March 11.
They release a portion of their childhood, but for what, a new beginning, to focus on something else, or because they are lazy? For me, I did not realize my junior year regional track meet would be my last jump I would ever make, until the first semester of my senior year. The spring of my senior year was the season I was supposed to succeed, obtain the school record, and prove everyone wrong. I trained harder than I ever had before: waking up early and going to bed late just to develop into a better jumper. In October of my Senior year, I ran myself to the brim of
I have completed my tenth grade with 70% marks in year 2011. Subsequently, I failed in my twelfth in non-medical in 2013, as pursue non-medical in my twelfth was a wrong decision. But before I could realize this it was already too late. I thus took my exams for my twelfth class with arts subjects and finally I managed to clear my twelfth class in 2014 with 60% marks. After completing my twelfth I decided to move
