A few years later, travel baseball concluded. Afterwards, I focused on making the school baseball teams. My father aided me in practicing most days, which we thought was enough. The trials lasted three days, and I felt that I performed sufficiently. Therefore, I was almost certain I was going to
Due to intense five-hour weekend practices and other improvements, we have reached new grounds this year. For the first time in sixteen years, our school's team was able to advance to the third round of the regional Mock Trial competition. Although Mock Trial requires a huge amount of work and dedication, the final result is well worth it. After spending many hours with the team, I can confidently assert that everyone supports each other. After all, unity is
Going to college is probably one of the most important things that I have done in my life so far. Thinking back to everything I have done in the past ten years or so, I can see that taking to leap of faith to join college and further my education was such a huge step for me and I am glad that I did. Before I joined Southern New Hampshire University, I knew I would need some motivation to enroll. I remember a story my father told me about how he had gone to Technical College and became a licensed Master Mechanic and that really motivated me to want to further my education. Also, my brother had talked to me about two months ago and had told me his experience with going to college to earn his English degree and me, being the competitive brother I am, didn’t want him to be the only sibling to earn a degree.
Throughout my whole experience at Centennial, I have always wanted to join the National Junior Honor’s Society, so I feel very honored to have this opportunity to apply. Last semester, I was part of our school’s Student Council. Being in that group allowed me to see how important leadership is in our daily lives, in and outside of school. I also learned a whole lot about service, considering we had to complete one hour every week. All of these things are important, but the thing that I thought spoke to me personally was this year’s theme.
Thanks for your comments. We are blessed to be a part of this great institution, the amount of support we are receiving is enormous. The institution provides a variety of support services for online students through the “Center for Learning and Advancement.” For instance, my student services advisor functions as both an academic counselor and a financial aid resource. As I transition to the second course, the advisor is an excellent contact for assistance about the systems and resources of the school. Given the fact that the doctoral journey is at least three years, the advisor might change during my term in the program, but the school will inform me of the change when that happens.
Because of the educational resources that are offered in the United States I was able to excel in School. I attended an Early College Academy and graduated with a 4.25 weighted GPA. I participated in many clubs such as the Recycle, Environmental, Yearbook, And Diversity Club. I was also a member of the National Honors Society, and have accumulated over 200 hours of community service. I can assure
Kewauna used passion to succeed in college. For instance, Tough states that Kewauna went without sleep for three night’s straight to prepare for finals. Therefore, her passion enabled her to be ready for finals. Thirdly, Kewauna used courage. To illustrate, Tough tells that Kewauna made the step to make friends to get help if the professor was not there.
It even helped me commit to my first job as an assistant instructor for Girlventures. I have been working with Girlventures for two years, and I am about to embark on the third year in June. Girlventures is a nonprofit based in San Francisco focusing on empowerment of females and non-gender-conforming people through inner reflection and the outdoors. At Girlventures, I realized how strong I could be and my leadership style and potential. I reached for a grounding force to focus my energies and distract from the chaos at home.
The summer before my freshman year at IUPUI I had three goals I told myself I would accomplish. I wanted to hold a leadership position in at least one student organization, create relationships with people that would last far beyond college, and graduate in three years,. I knew who I was; therefore I knew accomplishing these goals would require challenging myself and truly stepping out of my comfort zone. I believe I should be apart of IUPUI Top 100 students because in a few short months I can proudly say all my goals were met. I’ve always been laid back, reserved, but firm and hardworking.
I’m honored and excited to be on an oversight trip with the nonprofit organization Global Roots. The executive director of this organization Rick Montgomery, is a Lincoln High School alumni and a family friend. Rick thought it would be a good experience for me as an aspiring photographer and as a young woman. We are checking up on all the places Global Roots has been sponsoring. Unfortunately, “92% of all Maasai girls are subjected every year to forced removal from school, female genital mutilation and forced marriage.
As I am quickly approaching the end of my senior, I am looking back at how far I have come since freshman year and everything that Henley High School has helped me accomplish in my life. In preparation for the life that every senior must experience after school, the senior capstone project was put in place to help seniors find out what they would suit them as career and give them some of the necessary tools in achieving that. Part of the capstone was earning service hours at a non profit organization, that can go on a resume. With serving came a facilitator, who guides one’s service, and also the challenges and success of the service itself. To Provide help on future careers, Henley High School also provided an opportunity to take the CIS test
When I started high school, the club that excited me the most, was National Honors Society. So, at the first chance I got, in my sophomore year. After being a member for a year, I quickly realized that I wanted to take on a leadership opportunity in the club. So, I took a shot for the stars, and campaigned for being president of Honors Society. Though I had some competition, I put my all into composing a speech, and I won the presidency, and I have been president since.
On October 18, 2016, I attended the Volunteer Fair at Notre Dame de Namur University for three-quarters of an hour with my friend, Rheanna. The purpose of the event is to promote opportunities for college students to take an active part in society. It is also geared to assist the students in finding an internship and possibly explore outside of their immediate interests. The intent of the event succeeded in my view; I found three places that I am interested in and am waiting to receive additional information via email. I was also able to engage in a conversation with the representatives, especially ones from the Becton Healthcare Resources and Sparkiverse.
I particularly love the song choices and the meaning behind some of them. Connecting with a song is the best way in my eyes to express yourself and find something new about you... Music has SUCH an impact on performers and an audience, and to me
I was 33-years old when I completed my first Coastline College course in Geology and received an A. This milestone helped me to see the value in learning and gave me the confidence to go after an education I had all but given up on. When I transferred to San Quentin,I immediately enrolled in the college program offered through Patten University. The coolest thing about Patten compared to other prison college programs is that they bring in grad students from surrounding colleges like UC Berkeley and University of SF to help teach and tutor over 20 different classes per semester.Another major plus was that things like tuition, books,and class materials were
