After being done with my four years in college, I am planning to go straight into graduate school. I am up for this challenge even though it will be tough. Some might say that it is crazy to jump into graduate school after college, but I think it will benefit me in a way that my mind is still fresh and full of knowledge instead of taking a two or three year break. Then, I will look for a job after that; working in an environment in which I am studying for while in graduate school to help pay for my
The NUFS program provides their student with the proper tools and knowledge to prep their student for their intended career path. With the proper guidance and mentoring, students are able to graduate faster with post graduation goals in hand. For example, they notify students quickly each year if the catalog has been changed within the major. By taking the course NUFS31, I now know which classes I need to take every semester such as NUFS106A. This is important to take because it is a prerequisite for most of my major classes. I am also currently taking NUFS21, introduction to culinary, as an elective.
The classes I am taking this summer will be last required classes before I start my internship with UAF School of Education this fall. I pride myself of being hardworking student and because of this I am starting my internship one year than what was previously estimated. Financial difficulties will make it extremely hard for me to afford taking two classes during the UAF Summer Session. I have shown that I am dedicated student who will takes her college classes very seriously. I started my college career almost sixteen years ago, and returned several years ago to finish what I had started.
Currently, I am a senior at Livermore High School. After graduating high school, I aspire to become an Optometrist. I believe this career will be perfect for me, due to the fact that I will be able to work in various settings, make a difference in other’s lives, and maintain a flexible schedule. However, in order to achieve this goal, I will have to spend at least eight years in school.
Since I will be graduating school soon I have though about what I am going to do after school. Post back might be the plan because of how my GPA looks if I cannot push it up before I graduate. Another reason that I am looking at the Post back is because I will have a whole year until I go to graduate school because of the time that I will take the test in order to get into graduate school. During my time going through the post back program, I believe that I can find an internship or a research program in order to expand my experience outside of the classroom and lab. If all go according to plan this should be it in order for me to be able to fulfill my dreams in the near future.
In order to be successful in college students should to choose a career they are passionate about, get to class on time, and study. Finding a career that someone is passionate about can be tough. Although it can come easy to a lot people. Some people know exactly what career they want when graduating from high school. Lynn F. Jacobs and Jeremy S. Hyman said to make sure when choosing a major take all the general education such as math, reading, and science.
The main way that this scholarship will assist my academic career at the University of Michigan is by allowing me to be able to take classes during the Spring/Summer terms, which is something I would not be able to afford on my own. Taking classes during the spring and summer will grant me the opportunity to spread out my course load, which will, in turn, help me receive better grades and learn concepts more thoroughly. It also will allow me to spend more time volunteering with different psychology labs and my student organization (Active Minds) during the Spring/Summer term, as well as the Fall and Winter terms of my senior year. With less of a course load in each specific semester, I will be able to allocate the time necessary to fulfill my lab duties, gain work experience, and have experiences that will make me a more well-rounded student without being overworked or feeling too overwhelmed. While classes are my
First, it will free up my time by requiring me to work less during the school year but still let me graduate debt free. Secondly, the time that is opened up will let me study more, allowing me to continue to earn straight A’s as I have done in the past. However, this time will not only help me earn straight A’s, it will also let me spend more time to truly learn what I am studying. The new free time will also let me participate in clubs such as the robotics club which will not only augment my learning, but help me prepare for my bachelors degree and spend time with other students who have similar interests as me. It is my goal to eventually earn a leadership position in one of these clubs, this would not be possible without this scholarship.
Maybe I am a bit distracted at times during lessons but believe me I have almost always tried to do my best in everything I do in specific my classes. Throughout my life I have been a 2.5 to 3.0 (gpa) student and had maybe a couple of F letter grades since my freshman start at Dinuba High School. I have high hopes of going to Reedly my college though it has always been a goal for my family but most importantly for myself. What I am saying is that I truly believe that I have the qualifications needed to make it to the college I have always thought about going. I am very optimistic about my future and see myself being accepted into Reedly college it is one of my dreams and until I see the day they really won 't accept me
By the time these children graduate from high school, they will be nearly fluent in Spanish, which would be extremely beneficial for them in their future endeavors. I would be honored to become a teacher in a Spanish immersion school, however, I could not do this unless I was able to spend a semester in Guatemala. In order to be hired in a Spanish immersion school, the educators must be fluent in Spanish because they are required to teach their classes in Spanish. If I have recent immigrants from Spanish speaking countries in my classroom, I will be better prepared to communicate with the students and their parents and understand the issues that brought them to the U.S.A. For these reasons it is vital that I spend an entire semester in Guatemala becoming fluent in the Spanish language and better understanding the
I went to two different events this term, the first being a theater event promoted by Deaf Spotlight back on May 13th. The beginning of this event there was some time where I got to meet Deaf community members. One guy there I talked with a lot, his name was Jimmy K. and his sign name was a “J” trasitioning to a “K” by his shoulder. There were only about 10 Deaf people there for the event but it was nice to see everyone interacting together. Unfortunatly I learned that it was not a deaf primary event, and instead of focusing around ASL it had translators.
Going to college would be great for my future. Today, it is hard to get a good paying job without a degree or some type of higher education. Some people, however, believe that college doesn't matter and is a waste of time. If college was a waste of time, then nothing good would come out of it. Students graduate high school with dreams of becoming doctors, teachers, engineers, etc.
