As a little girl, I found it hard to say “Griffin” correctly. Most of the time when I tried to say his name it came out as “Rickin” which was then shortened to “Ricky.” Names I still call him today. But no matter what you call him, my brother is a special person and has been an excellent role model to me these past 2 years at STVM. Academically, he is a member of National Honor Society and Mu Alpha Theta.
On It’s a Wonderful Life George Bailey changed many people’s lives over the course of his life. This is supported because of what George Bailey did to help his friends and family, his dedication to helping others, even strangers, and what would happen if he didn’t exist. It’s a Wonderful Life displays each life is important through what George Bailey did, when he finds out that he’s an important part of the town, and the scene where George wishes he was never born. George Bailey influenced a lot of people and helped friends and family through hard times. Bedford Falls would be very different without George.
During my senior year, though, our old director had become busy and let go almost completely. This gave our new director the freedom to teach as he pleased. Older members of the band had very little faith in our director, and they were pushing their negative opinions off onto the rest of our band. The level of trust and respect for our director were very low.
Now I am looking forward to furthering my education after high school and taking care of my family the way I always wanted. In final conclusion, being on probation was a bizarre journey. Also, taught me a lot in life from start to end. Which started to show me that my friends weren’t for me, I did thing I regretted, I ended back on probation, and it made me the person I am today.
I am honored to be amongst the meritorious students who are being considered for induction into the National Honors Society. Being an active member of this society has been something I have been looking forward to since middle school; having previous family members inducted, I regard acceptance to it a goal I must accomplish. I would be honored to be a member of this society which is known for benefiting others. These limitless opportunities of contributing to my community will help me grow as a person which will undoubtedly help me in my future career in the medical field and leave an impact on my fellow community members. The National Honors Society is an important organization made up of students who demonstrate leadership, service, character,
No, not back then. What did happen was that I re-read the book and learned some incredible things about myself. I asked myself some hard questions, about my hidden fears and limiting beliefs, and was shocked at the kind of answers that came out as I journaled regularly. But I didn’t really dive in and do the actual work of tapping and clearing. For a year, what I worked on was developing deeper self-understanding, and self-compassion came with it.
This act was particularly hard for me, as by now my behaviour had been fluctuating for a good amount of years and I got it in my head that this behaviour was normal, after I was kicked back into line after multiple suspensions, and a meeting with my parents, I strived for the best in my behaviour and education. In this act I showed resilience, as I kicked out a bad habit that had been causing me trouble for far too long. Sometimes you have to look at yourself and your faults, and decided how you can be a better person, this is incredibly difficult for most, and shows vast amounts of
At the end of freshman year, I started to realize that I needed to clean up my act if I wanted to be successful. I would relate my freshman year like traveling thought that mountain’s ups and downs on my trip. It started off fun and exciting, but the ups and downs came up real
I believe that each weaknesses becomes strength. Every human beings have weaknesses, an enemy trying to bring you down in everyday living in the world. An enemy that cant be seen in the eyes but in the midst of mind. In an mock interview I ask what was your greatest weakness in your life and how did you overcome it, I stop for a second and I return back all the memories. Without any hesitation I quickly answered, “My greatest weaknesses was insecurity, I have been fighting every single day of my life to the point that I cannot fight it anymore, but I realized that I’m not the only one who suffered this kind of disorder.
Through the years, 4-H has had a great impact on my life. Without 4-H I would not be the person I am today if I had not been involved with 4-H at such a young age. During my years of participation in 4-H I have received many life skills that have greatly impacted my life. Some of the skills that I have gained include but are not limited to leadership skills, public speaking skills, and responsibility skills.
It shook me up a lot and I wasn’t in a good place mentally and emotionally, but I learned who I was as a person, and that I deserved someone who would treat me better than how I was being treated. Bad things don’t just happen for no reason. When we experience something that scars us, we change and become a stronger person. We can’t control what happens to us or around us, but we’re in control of what we
The peak of these illnesses came during one of the most important and stressful times in my high school career, junior year. I suddenly lost two of my grandparents, my parents were going through a divorce, which caused me to move out of my childhood home and into a new house with my mother and little brother, and I watched my father struggle with an illness. Fortunately, I was able to recover with the help of doctors, friends, and family. Through this experience, I learned I find the most happiness and contentment by keeping myself busy with things to benefit others and when I can use my expertise while contributing to a group or project. The happiness I have found while bringing the gift of community to those in need of it, through my service projects, is unlike any happiness I have ever felt before.
