I would like to start off by saying some thank yous to those who made this day possible. To my parents for the much needed love and support To my family and friends and to the people who helped with my eagle project And thank you all for attending my court of honor Over the past 13 years, scouting has taught me a lot of things that will stay with me the rest of my life. It has taught me, don’t use gasoline to start a fire. I’ve learned that being an eagle Scout isn’t just a title, but a way on how to live your life. Since 2008, when I joined Boy Scouts, I’ve made so many friends and memories that I will never forget.
I have already discussed the importance of Boy Scouts in my life. FIRST Robotics has also been very important to me my development. FIRST Robotics inspired me to pursue a career in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). I want to further encourage students to pursue STEM and to develop their leadership and communication skills to better prepare them for the future. In ten years, I plan to mentor a FIRST Robotics team to encourage the development of these skills.
However, it also represents a point of maturity. Already I was a senior member of our troop, but as an Eagle Scout, I became part of an elite group of role models. More important, however, was my realization that a passive approach to life is childish, accomplishing nothing extraordinary and nothing beyond what is required. An aspect to maturity is not merely going through the motions, but getting involved in activities, seeking out opportunities, being willing to engage in activities whether or not you feel prepared. Acquiring the rank of Eagle Scout and conducting my Eagle Scout project forced me far outside my comfort zone to teach me this.
After watching the Randy Pausch speech, I have gained a better understanding of what it is like to experience flow. Randy Pausch lived his life dedicated and fully immersed in all of his goals. Whether it was to become the guy at amusement park that won the big stuffed animals or being able to get into Brown University; he did everything to the best of his ability. Although he did not necessarily accomplish his childhood goal, he received greater lessons by not doing so. In trying to achieve his childhood goal, he came to understand that his abilities may not allow him to become an NFL player.
As an NCO, I have given my best to ensure mission success and train my soldiers. Concurrently, I continue the search for unique and challenging intelligence positions. Becoming a warrant officer will open doors to those new challenges I seek, expands the possibilities of specific training and unique assignment opportunities while still providing the opportunity to train, lead, and mold the next generation of soldiers. During my 11 years as an Intelligence Analyst, I have excelled in positions of greater responsibility and genuinely believe i have more to offer the Army. Throughout my career, I have taken my job seriously and taken pride in my work.
He showed courage within his daily life constantly. He made it a point and a continuous effort to raise his two kids Jem and Scout to grow up with a sense of pride. When Judge Taylor approached Atticus on the porch late at night in chapter 16, I knew he was only being appointed because Judge Taylor saw something in Atticus that made him fit to defend Tom Robinson. It takes a lot of courage to willingly defend someone who at the time was looking down upon because of the color of their skin. Adding on to the fact that Atticus wanted to teach his children to grow up free of prejudice; Atticus gives Scout an important life lesson.
My parents had instilled in me the importance of hard work and dedication so by the end of the school year I was capable of holding a clear conversation in English. I realized then that I could achieve anything I set my mind to; a lesson that has carried though my entire life and served me well in years to
Unfortunately, being immigrants from Mexico has its limitations and prevented them from doing as they pleased. This motivated me to do well in high school in order to attend a university and ultimately help my parents out. Simply pursuing a higher education was not just the next step after high school, but more of an opportunity to achieve a better lifestyle for my family and I. College grants me the opportunity to achieve something my parents simply could not do; graduate with a degree or two and to get a decent paying job without having to break my back. I want to be able to give back to my family for all of the things they have sacrificed and done for

A college education is very important especially if one wishes to maximize their potential and earning in the future. What makes it so important to me are the three things that it allows me to do: expands my skill set, gives me a better chance at reaching my ultimate career goal, and provides me a way to support a my future family. These three objectives are what help me put my education in perspective while lighting the fire in my belly to get my assignments done. I’m not the type of person to take an opportunity like this for granted because I know how rare a chance to get a college degree is whether it’s an associate’s, bachelor’s, or master’s degree. Therefore, you must dig in with both heels and make the most of the opportunity so that one can better themselves for the present and the future.

With this in mind, my greatest desire is to receive not only an outstanding technical education but also grow as a conscientious and socially responsible individual. In the next four years, I envision myself in an environment that fosters a genuine sense of family among motivated students. I want to belong to a school where I can develop in character as well as in my Catholic faith, even in the midst of rigorous academic work. I look forward to a career in applied sciences, with one foot in the laboratory and the other in the real world. I daydream about discovering creative avenues for positive change and inspiring others to innovate solutions for the complex challenges of our modern
