An activity, interest, experience, or achievement that has been particularly meaningful to me in my life is being in an educational group called educational talent search otherwise known as TRIO. This helped me realize that this my future I need to take control and do what’s best for me and my education. This not only helped me get serious about my future but also helped me find the right college(s) that I know I would have liked to apply to such as the University of Central Florida. Being able to visit the college and see what it was about was a great and beneficial experience. In addition to being in a class in school that helps determine my future. Being in the Gulf Power Academy Program in school is a tremendous meaningful experience to
Despite all the challenges, I received my high school diploma. In addition to my graduation day, my self-image had improved. I graduated with honor and that was one of the happiest days of my life. My achievement and my supports made me realized that I could succeed in college. People congratulated me and made me feel confident. After my high school graduation day, I was a different person by having people congratulated and wished me luck with my professional career.
My proudest achievement would be getting into Cumberland International Early College and making it oy my
One problem that I have faced personally was that I was a bit of an introvert. It was a significant problem for me considering I was not entirely confident in social situations. This all began to change through events that transpired during my freshman year. My family moved to Bentonville, Arkansas, where I attended Bentonville High School for the majority of ninth grade. In an instant, I had transferred from a school with a class size of 250 students to a school that was six times larger, consisting of 1500 freshmen. This was a tremendous transition for me. I was required to leave my friends and classmates that I had known for the previous seven years in Palmyra, Pennsylvania. Soon I realized that I needed to overcome my introversion
In the Dominican Republic, we had a wall called El Cuadro de Honor, the wall of honor. From first grade to fourth grade, my photograph and name was always on it. I loved being a student. I was excited to go to school each morning. The maestra, the teacher, taught us lengua española, ciencias naturales, ciencias sociales, matemáticas. After the morning classes, we would go into the backyard, which had a big field and a playground. There, we ate the ham and cheese or chicken sandwiches and drank the fresh fruit juices we bought from the lunch ladies.
The best thing I had accomplishment in high school is doing my 200 over hours in the Mercy Medical Hospital. Doing this was a big accomplishment because I learned how to communicate with the people in the community and also I had also learned new things on how to take care of the patients their to make them feel comfortable while they where their. How I earned these hours was by going once a week and doing four hours and I help people locate where they need to go and I also go to the floors and help them get their things ready when they are about to get discharged. Also, when I was able to work on the weekend and during my breaks I had done eight hours each day I took the extra hours to show that I am capable that I wanna help the people
One significant accomplishment that means the most to me was being voted for McAdory High School's Class of 2016 SGA Class Treasurer. Winning the election, in May of 2016, has shown me how I am looked up to by my fellow peers. Having 244 students in my grade is already a lot of kids, but having the Class of 2015 vote on the Class of 2016 officers means that over the years I have become a role-model for those younger than me; that itself means to me to always do what is good and honorable because I will have younger eyes watching me and being influenced by my actions. I have always tried my best in school work, cheerleading, and after-school clubs, so because of that I have a valued accomplishment of a high GPA and a long list of extracurricular
Just two years ago, if someone would have told me that I would have a 3.9 GPA in college and that I would have dreams that are close to coming true, I would have laughed straight in their face. I was never truly inspired before in life, and I thought, with all the trouble that I got into in high school, that I was just a bad person, and that bad people do not get to achieve dreams. I was confused, a mess, and I did not even know how a "troubled youth" as I was labeled, would be able to do successfully in life. As I stated before in this application, I was diagnosed with a lot within high school, but it does not start there. No, this all goes back to preschool, where I was actually kicked out of my preschool and was told that I required “psychiatric”
Why is being a good leader important to me? Growing up I was always told it is important to be a leader not a follower, this gave me high aspirations. Leadership qualities help me meet my high expectations in education, co-curricular activities, volunteering and in my personal time. Leadership helps me to surpass others while reaching for my career goals.
My time during the Middle School has been very influential to me. During it I have been able to find the things that I enjoy the most and have the most success at. The primary examples of these are; maths, science, and basketball. By realising this I have positioned myself well for the senior school as I am learning as much as I can in the areas that I enjoy. I feel that through this I was able to be very proactive in taking responsibility for my learning in an enjoyable way – this is my greatest achievement for the Middle School. However, in order to prepare for the senior school a more advanced time management system would benefit me
I felt that when I got to college that it would be smooth sailing, but boy was I wrong. I have noticed that I may not have been as prepared as I thought, some of my studying habits were terrible, and I needed to learn how to manage my time. But like all things you learn with time, and I do believe I am getting better.
In middle school I took high school courses, so I could get ahead. I was dedicated to my studies making honor roll every report card. Senior year I was invited to a meeting to honor the students graduating in the top 15% of our
“Everyone is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” In this quotation, Albert Einstein explains that by thinking someone is stupid because of his lack of a certain ability, then he will have less desire to learn. Einstein was dyslexic and never finished his education because his teachers thought he was mentally challenged. If it weren’t for his determination to continue learning, he would never have put forth the General Theory of Relativity. Like Einstein, I was diagnosed with dyslexia in the fourth grade; it seemed that teachers and some of my friends doubted my intellectual prowess. They did not believe that I could achieve at a high level and suggested that I take easier classes and not overload my schedule.
They say the path to confidence is not a direct route. There are always things getting in the way of us fully accepting ourselves; whether those be forces outside of us or inside of us. We are constantly bombarded with images of girls that are a size 2, naturally or photoshopped. Sometimes, the inside forces are more vicious than the magazines. We are so hard on ourselves. We focus on every little imperfection and turn it into a huge insecurity. For example, I hate the roll that appears when you put your arms down. I think about them all the time. It took me a little while to realize that no one else was looking. I doubt anyone has ever thought, “wow, look at that girl’s armpit roll.” Most of the insecurities we have are only visible to us.
I learn from my failures, and it is through them that I find my inspiration.
