My “threshold guardian: was most likely myself and my fears. At first, it took me a while to accept my responsibilities and get over my fear of failing and getting nowhere. Now that I am within the “unknown” there are many challenges that I face every day and will continue to face. There is the challenge of finding out what I want to study in college, doing well on standardized tests, and getting good grades in all of my classes.

My strengths are my acquired knowledge and skills acquired from my education, work experience, and foundational year field practicum experience.

The purpose of The Outliers is to inspire his readers to think of an individual more critically: “”They had to look beyond an individual. They had to understand the culture he or she was a part of, and who their friends and families were, and what town their families came from. They to appreciate the idea that the values of the world we inhabit and the people we surround ourselves with have a profound effect on who we are” (11).

Before coach I didn’t really think I could go to college but thanks to him my mind set changed. He taught me that I can accomplish anything I set my mind on and more.
Academically, I was pushed into performing the best I could such as trying my best in English class even though it was a struggle in the beginning.
