In my education I look forward to meeting new people making new friends and finding people that have the same interests as me and I think it will be an insightful and enjoyable society to advance my studies and expand my horizons. Studying and doing well in the courses at the academy will set me up to be successful in the field of marine transpiration and to be
I extracted DNA, dissected cow brains, and learned about the life of Ben Carson, my idol. Despite his political standings, I respect his story about how he came to be the neurosurgeon that he is today. He went through several trials and tribulations to
Six people assigned to a one room hotel is not the best situation for a family. At the time, to make matters worse, my father became very sick making it harder for us to pay for rooms every week because he was out of work. The time was while not my ideal
Because of my interest in global health, I want to take Modern Biology and Societal Implications and the Philosophy of Biology. I also am excited to learn from Robert Aronowitz, the 21st Century’s expert of the evolution of diseases. When I visited Penn’s campus, I learned from current students that they forged strong connections with their professor, forming tangible bonds between teacher and student. The professors at Penn value and respect their students: rather than simply reciting facts, the teacher encourages and empowers their students to find real-world solutions for the solutions for our society’s present and future
These are the days where you might have to work with some not so nice people. Also you may have a surgeon who is having a bad day and your the nearest person to take it out on. Now I know your thinking why in the world would I want to put up with this stuff? But trust be it gets better, in the beginning nobody is going to trust you becasue they have been doing this a long time and you just walked across the stage last month.
My interest in science has forced me to enroll in AP Chemistry and AP Calculus to supplement my scientific endeavors. I believe my high level of proficiency in both classes, will enable me to assist others achieve their desired level of achievement at Governor’s Honors Program. My involvement in the field of engineering through Robotics and the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair will also assist me in providing practical applications for science at Governor’s Honor Program. My avid desire to share knowledge in technological integration will accelerate the performance of the Governor’s Honors Program
Volunteering at a hospice company was a turning point in my life. I find the United States is still segregated by age. I never truly understood that ageism existed, I assumed it was a thing of the past or only happened in extremely rare cases. This is my second year volunteering to help talk to patients, and my first year writing someone’s life story, her legacy. Most young people never get a chance to interact with the elderly, and are separated because of the fast paced society we have built around those 18-30 years olds.
Not only do I think that the study of life is the most fascinating subject, but I also love that there are so many career options with a social aspect. Preferably, I would like to be working with patients directly. By working with people in the medical field, not only are you able to talk to patient directly, but you have the privilege of helping them. I know that choosing to be a biology major is the right decision for me. Through my classes in high school to my volunteering at the hospital, I know that biology is my
I sincerely would love to be a part of the computer science program here at Texas A&M University and feel qualified with my background in computers and various programming languages. I have been working to be the best student I can for this program by participating in coding activities and competitions like Hack TAMU, Hack Texas, Code Red, and some others. Along with that, I have been attending informative seminars like the Google Tech Talks and Resume Workshops hosted here at A&M to learn and help pursue my career related goals in the future. Also, I have become more involved with the Aggie Computing Society to network and attended informative meetings. I feel that I have proven my knowledge, ability to code, and ability to problem solve
The meets leading up to senior state hadn’t been going very well for me and I found myself stuck with the same times I had been going all season. I had two and a half hours of practice every day and six days a week and I still wasn’t getting the results I wanted. I couldn’t understand what I was doing wrong and it often left me feeling defeated and distressed. Every single time I would come home from a bad meet my dad would say to me how I can’t expect to get faster in a race if I do the same thing every time to prepare me for one.
My short term education goals include attending Northern Virginia Community College for two years and completing my Associates in Science degree in engineering. I hope to join the honors college and graduate with a GPA of 4.0. During my time at Northern Virginia Community College, I hope to truly learn and prepare myself not only for transfering to a University but also for real work and life after college by applying the skills and knowledge I learn. Not only do I want to learn but I want to spend time in extracurricular activities such as cross country or join clubs like the robotics or math club. My goal is to complete community college with no debt.
