In the meantime, while I was working as a certified nurse assistant, I triggered the call bell for assistance, but nobody came to my aide, therefore I decided to change the bed myself, on a fully dependent patient. Shortly thereafter, I realized an excruciating pain in my shoulder, I had torn my rotator cuff. This unfortunate event changed my entire career path, no nursing school for me. Nothing was going to prevent me from progressing my education, I may not have gone to nursing school, but I went back to business school. In this case, I was still trying to guarantee a better future, a better career, and one that I could do without being in constant
One of the most important things in my life right now is my education. I always give 100% at anything that can affect my academics. This is because I believe that what I do now will affect which colleges I get into which will inturn affect my career and therefore my entire future. While I am doing the best I can at the moment, I will soon have to make a decision about which college would be best for me. After thorough research, Rutgers University would be the best college for me because it has a prestigious program in my area of study, the location is optimal and graduates from Rutgers are very successful.
Through interacting with students working toward a broad range of majors, I may find interests in things I had never thought to study before. In addition to this, I feel as if it is incredibly important to be exposed to opinions other than one’s own in order to learn and grow, and this program could provide the perfect opportunity for this through conversations inside and outside of the classroom. I appreciate the Honors Program’s push for students to have off-campus experiences, such as studying abroad (something I certainly intend on doing my junior year), as I believe these experiences are yet another wonderful opportunity for personal growth that allow students to step out of their comfort zone and develop communication skills that can be used throughout their lives. Additionally, The Honors Program would be a great way to help me prepare for graduate school. Not only would I have the opportunity to challenge myself through upper level classes, which on its own would be of benefit when applying to a graduate program, but by having an Honors Thesis or Honors Project under by belt, I would undoubtedly have an edge over other applicants as this would show the university that I’m prepared for advanced courses and the application of my
By enrolling in some of the most difficult classes at my school, my work ethic and persistence has grown. I have also developed a strong desire to meet the challenges in my life, which will prepare me for the many new challenges later on. With this in mind, I feel that the MCC Honors Diploma would benefit my academic and professional future by demonstrating my capabilities to other schools, and it would also be an amazing reward for my activities and work here at
I remember when I was first able to glance over the descriptions of all of The Engaged Citizen courses offered at Hendrix College. They all sounded spectacular, but there was one that really drew my attention. The title read “TEC: Identity & The Need to Belong.” Underneath was a description of the course explaining how by understanding the importance of identity and belonging, the course would help students become better engaged citizens and better understand their own identity and belonging. Immediately, I knew this was the course for me, and boy was I right. This TEC course has taught me more than I could have ever imagined and has introduced me to a variety of new ideas—all of which have impacted my awareness of identity.
There are many activities and classes at Wooster that are of interest to me. One I admire the most is the first-year seminar, where you explore texts, their interpretations, and your own writing. A class like this would be really important to me because I didn 't have something like this in high school. It would have been helpful for me with my transition from middle school to high school and I would take full advantage of it if given the chance to at Wooster. There are aspects about high school that I look for in a college, and the most significant is diversity.
The National Honor Society is a top-notch group that many want to be part of, but for all of the wrong reasons. There are many traits one needs to successfully participate in the group; Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. During the course of my life, I dedicated it to learning new subjects and striving for top marks in my classes. Learning is an immense passion of mine that will continue to thrive. Throughout the years, I observed that certain people led their group to the correct path.
Going to a ‘good high school’ is really an important goal to set up a successful life. The people and education can help form what kind of person you will be as an adult, how you change your world for the better, whether on personal or global level. But what a good school is can mean many different things depending on what goals are set ahead for the high school years and beyond. I want to be accepted into a private high school, be involved and happy with the community, be pushed to achieve to my limits academically, and enjoy my time learning and experiencing the communities and people around me. My individual talents, interests, and ideas are parts of myself that I want to nurture and share with others.
My high school career at James Madison High School has prepared me to be successful as a student at Radford University because of how competitive it is. Parents, teachers, and friends are always pushing me to be the best that I can be, whether that be with my education, social life, or relationships. The faculty and students at James Madison High school have given me a deeper view of the world. I have been exposed to many different ethnic groups and situations, good and bad, which have helped prepare me for the 'real world ' at college.
Every semester was goal was to get straight A’s but with balancing school and a child, sometimes there just were not enough hours in the day to get perfect grades. Despite the demanding academic and home schedule I proudly earned high enough grades to be recognized on the WSU Presidential Awards Program: President’s Honor Roll and I was additionally offered membership to the Honor Society. I was ecstatic to be offered membership to the Honor Society. Immediately I envisioned myself at graduation wearing my cap and gown complemented with Honor Society Regalia. The thought of wearing the regalia was a significant visual indication of the hard work I did and I was eager to show it off to my family, friends and fellow
