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.
CNA Certification I was really looking forward to getting my job at Winner Regional Long Term Care. This was the summer after my freshmen year and I had just turned 16. My mom and my friend Mollie really made me believe I would have a lot of fun while helping people. To be able to get this job, I took classes to become a Certified Nursing Aid. This was a very long procedure that took about three months.
I am writing this recommendation letter at the request of Samantha Mercado who is applying for the Resident Assistant position. I was lucky enough to have Samantha as a resident and suitemate this year in Stuyvesant Hall. Over the past semester, I am proud to say that I have seen Samantha grow as a student and find her place at Hofstra University. Samantha is one of the most focused and driven individuals I have ever met. Her commitment to academics is second to none and as a Dance and Biology double major with a concentration in Pre-Medical Studies, her time management and problem solving skills are top of the line.

After completing the summer term, Jerri will graduate with her Bachelor of Business Administration degree with an emphasis in Management. Jerri lives a busy life. In addition to taking two to three courses per semester, she also juggles her family life, and her many hobbies.
Each exercise helped us gain the courage, confidence and physical strength we needed to return to our regularly life that we normally had and enjoyed so much. That’s where I believe my passion to become an occupational therapist began. For the past three years, I have spent a substantial amount of time observing this field from various perspectives. If I had to choose a particular instance that helped me gain knowledge and a more intense drive for the occupational therapy field the most, it would have to be my first place of employment after undergrad. I had the pleasure of working with the Jackson Public School District as a Special Needs
To start off, what I believe makes me unique and different from other candidates is my determination and my ability to get back up after being knocked down. Many students applying to the University of California have had continued academic success. Either they are successful high school students that have never posted anything lower than a 3.0 GPA or transfer students that have cruised easily through community college. This was not the case for me. I did have some success in high school receiving awards such as honor roll, but there were also numerous times when I struggled to maintain a passing grade.
Whenever they have a problem they facetime me and we rant and rant and rant for usually more than three hours a day. I give them options for what they should do in their situation I assure them. I help them cope and more than anything we talk, we make fun of each other, and we sometimes have actual sessions were we write what happened to let things out. Some are one on one sessions and some are sessions with more than one client (friend). Most of the time they aren 't serious but they can
School had always been something I was good at. All through my academic career, up until my sophomore year of college, school never stressed me out too bad. Trying to be a successful student, employee, friend, and family member can be very overwhelming. Once I entered college I was faced with many obstacles that challenged me to balance all the roles in my life. During my fall semester of my sophomore year in college I experienced the most difficult time ever.
Each year contains four quarters, so two years consists of a total of eight quarters. I would enter the planning phase of formative evaluation by analyzing the different dimensions of binge drinking as well as the stakeholders involved, such as advertisers of alcoholic beverages. To develop the program, I would apply the various elements of program logic. After this, I would utilize different ways to collect information about the students’ experience and determine the progress my program is making. The different activities of my program would take place during each quarter, including monthly community discussion forums and workshops to lower binge drinking, etc.

So far my first semester here at Neosho County Community College has been good. I have experienced lots of things these past six months. And there are lots of things the incoming freshman should know, but the three major things that I experienced were, procrastination, Grades and, dorm problems. I have faced those three problems a lot just in my first semester of college and those are also problems freshman all over the world face. Firstly, Procrastination is a problem I faced early in the year and I should not have.
Maria is my boss at the counseling center and has been for three years now. I work under her as a sexual assault peer educator. I have weekly meetings with her and work with her when planning certain events that the SAPES may be doing throughout the semester such as the sex positive event that was held last spring. I have gotten to know Maria fairly well, making this interview feel like just another one of our weekly meetings. In conclusion, I was truly blessed to have Ms. Wydra be so generous with her time to allow me to interview her for this paper and or class.
I have had three whole years to think about this. Being the only fourth year returner and last year’s alternate leader, I have dedicated myself to this program in ways that others have not. I have been with this program even with changes in leadership and coaching styles. I have a vast knowledge of what is expected and I am an excellent source when people have questions about stunting, dancing, and cheers because I truly have done it all. This level of dedication has not been easy, however.
Last year I completed the three year course with an occupational course completion certificate. With this certificate I can enter a four year college with three credits towards my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice along with the dual enrollment courses I have already completed. This year I continue to study criminal justice law and systems, but it has been a more kinesthetic experience by participating in mock trials, criminal investigations and traffic crash investigations. My teacher, Heather Lay, has been such an influence in my education and pushing me to try my best, especially with all of the mock situations she made me head leader of. Though, such mock situations have also supported and influenced my intrigue in the criminal justice field while satisfying my scientific curiosity.
