After working a few different places and being laid off I soon decided it was time to look toward my future. I returned to Highline Community College I did not know what I wanted to do after school but was more focused on each class and who I could learn. Towards the end of my time at Highline I took an introduction class to psychology, I feel in love with the idea of being able to help people. I choose Central Washington University’s psychology program to receive my Bachelor’s degree. During my senior year while attending Central Washington University I narrowed down what Master’s program what wanted to enroll in to help with the career that I want to have.
In this paper, I will be reflecting on my first year as an Occupational therapy student at the University of The Witwatersrand. While reflecting, I have come to realise that my viewpoint and understanding of the profession of Occupational Therapy and the importance of occupation to Occupational Therapy have developed substantially throughout this year. In my opinion, my previous understanding of OT and occupations in OT was very basic and shallow compared to what I understand of this topic currently. This growth in understanding came about due to many learning events such as lectures, fieldwork and activities, however, two of the most significant learning events I have personally experienced this year have had a major impact on my learning experience. These two learning events, which are prominent events within my first year of studying OT, include the OT June exam and making a chair in APT (Appropriate Paper-based Technology) for a child with Cerebal Paulsy and Microcephaly.
On the other hand, I think it was great to have the experience as long as it made me more money. In the beginning, I started working when I was 17 years old. I worked at a retail store in Bloomfield, New Jersey after school and on the weekend. I began working at an early age because I want to stand on my own feet and I do not want to rely on my family. In the essay “Working at Wendy’s,” Joey Franklin states, “I only applied here because I knew I would get hired, says Sara the first night I work with her.” This situation related to my experience when I am hunting the job.
As a pre-medical student, I initially felt out of my league since the other volunteers were graduate education students. I was responsible for designing a summer reading program for fifteen children, ages five to nine and implementing my program at the Little Falls YMCA where the children were daily. I encountered many obstacles such as what material would be appropriate for each child, children who announced their dislike for reading, and the struggles of instituting a daily lesson. Despite these factors and my unfamiliar setting, I began to feel confident in myself as I thought of new projects to get the children to enjoy the program. Also, several of the children needed emotional support in addition to assistance with their reading, and a personal factor evolved in my relationship with the children.
After I was out of school for around a month after my ACL surgery it was hard to catch up but It was not impossible. I didn 't try enough because I already thought my grade was too far gone and that rolled over into the next semester. After the school year I was very disappointed in myself. I never have failed a class in my life but here I was applying for summer school. So I redirected my disappointment and decided to excel at summer school.
When I started my first year in high school at Old Scona Academic, my transition from junior high wasn’t the smoothest. I didn’t know what courses to take nor how to handle the stress. It was in these times that my school’s mentorship program proved invaluable. Returning students had the option of becoming a mentor for new students and my grade 11 mentor cleared up all my worries the second after I had them. So I took inspiration from all the help I was given and am now a mentor for a new grade 10.
Every summer i’d take many courses to advance and exceed in my classes, my parents having some knowledge about high school believed at one point that I had taken a summer course to make up a failing class due to the fact of how my older brother struggled during his years. Not being able to do much during the summer also limited my time to having fun and doing what I liked. Community service hours were never mentioned to me until my sophomore year surprisingly and I had a plethora of hours piled up to my normal schedule, up until now I have been able to do most of those hours but if I were told sooner I’d be done by now. Experiences with my community have also opened up connections to work-related material and internships for the near future. I’ve been living in Atwater for at least more than six years and am surprised with all the time I’d been here, I now know much about the area I raised
What I have learned I learned an enormous amount of information during the Spring 2018 OCTH 5510 Groups Theory & Practice course. The next few sentences will only provide a small window of what I have learned as I feel I have gained a lot more from this course than what I am going to write. First, I learned the differences between a group and a crowd. Second, I learned about the five stages of group development and their defining characteristics. Third, I learned about Dimock’s framework of group dimensions.
“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing.” These were the words that my elementary teacher told my class before a summer vacation. I never forgot them because they were the reason I ever got into my creative writing. I’ve been writing stories for both profit and pleasure for the last ten years, and each one is an example of my improvement. I took this class as a review course after my recent two year hiatus, and I believe that I have made an improvement in my writing as a whole. Before I took this course, I wasn’t confident in my organizational skills, I couldn’t make my stories flow, and I wasn’t sure if I was using correct grammar and punctuation, or just making a fool of myself.
So, I questioned myself, "What it takes to finally be familiar with those rules?" This experience taught me that writing is not the same as speaking and that requires me to have skills that go along with it. Writing this particular assignment about 9/11 as a topic has taught me what is like to deal with writing a research paper in a college-level, for the first time in my senior year. That was for my high school broadcasting class. However, after I gave my paper to my teacher, Mr. Williams, the next day he told me that it still had a lot of errors in it.
As summer came I wanted to make right choices so I decided to call the school and ask for the regaitor and I asked what I can do for me to make my credits up for my junior year and she told me that there where correspondence classes I can take but it costed money but for me an my family had put money into the corresponding classes and I got it an I have and I 'm trying to finish it so I can walk the line. My senior year came and I was ready to start the year fresh an make it smooth with getting my classes together and getting all my credits to graduate and walk that line with my class of
Then I started thinking, “What if I started a cupstacking club in my old school?” So I decide to talk with elementary teachers over the summer to see if I can get a sponsor. The first teacher I ask said she was in charge of a program that will teach many new activities to children. By the end of summer the school cancel the entire program. I did not give up. I talked to more and more teachers and each one of
My week 6 in Public Health was filled with unprofessionalism and full of sadness how public school has become. I was at Mt. Gleason again this week with Nurse Archer and Nurse Ana. We had to organize health immunization cards that has not been organized for a while. While organizing the health immunization cards, we noticed that the health immunization cards that were in the filing cabinets were mostly students that transitioned to Middle School or have transferred to another schools.
Growing up, she had to face some difficult decisions and witness what others can 't imagine. This is Dulce 's first year in college, 5th year in the United States and plans to major in Political Science. My goal in the beginning of interviewing her was to get to know her more as a person, but by the end, I had learned more than what I came to realize.
I am Juwan Clayton, a current sophomore and this is my second financial aid appeal letter, since attending Lock Haven University. When first coming to Lock Haven, things we 're difficult, a lot have change since then. I have made large strides in improving my intellect, habits, character since my last financial aid appeal. My Satisfactory Academic Progress have been progressing but at a normal student pace, I believe it will take one more semester to finally even out. So I do ask that all committee members who are reading my appeal letter, please keep a open mind and try to understand my reason for writing to you.
