I was making good money and I loved everyone I worked with. I started softball in the fall which was off season but we still practiced four days a week. Since I was at school four days a week it was very hard for me to be at work. I started working less and less which was okay at first, then spring came around and we have softball practice in the middle of the day six days a week. I had to quit the best job I had ever had.
Personal Accomplishment I remember it as if it was yesterday. The day I had been training weeks for, everything had come to this. The track and field district event, the most important event of the season. For a long time I had been training for long distance, the 1500 meter race. The training was hard, running for 2 hours, with only a few breaks for water and resting, everyday, for weeks.
I was born and raised in Quito, Ecuador until the age of 14. Due to economic hardships, my mother immigrated to the United States when I was five years old to seek better opportunities. My parents had to sacrifice themselves to provide my brother and I with the best education in Ecuador. They did not only pay for my brother’s private school but also for our extracurricular activities expenses. However, because of my performance in gymnastics, I won a scholarship for the best military academy in Ecuador.
The past three years of my high school experience can only be described as a roller coaster. I remember my first day of high school, sitting in the auditorium and hearing the counselors say "high school is what you make of it, so make it count". I was encouraged to join sports, clubs and extracurricular activities, which I did. I played Volleyball in the fall, ran track in the spring, joined clubs, and marched in the marching band. Even though I was very successful in playing sports, marching band was the most impactful to me.
“Beah tells EW. ‘And each time I embark on a new project, I write as if it is the first and last thing that I will ever write’...we also have another memoir in the works with Beah”(Biedenharn). Ishmael continues to inspire many as they read his troubling yet inspiring books as they realize what many children go through as they fight for their lives as child soldiers. Although Ishmael had to live as a child soldier for 2 years, has managed to turn a traumatic life experience to bring
"The nicest veterans in Schenectady, I thought, the kindest and funniest ones, the ones who hated war the most, were the ones who'd really fought."(Vonnegut). Soldiers risk their lives day and night to not only protect their country but protect their own lives, even if they don’t agree on what they are fighting for in the war. In Slaughterhouse-Five the death of
I dragged myself out of bed every morning at five thirty and worked out hard for two hours before going straight into mental focus at class. I spent what little free time I had learning and refining my soldier skills for Ranger Challenge. As the amount of light in the mornings dwindled, so did the number people vying for a spot on the team. Some quit and others got cut. However, I stuck with it.
I have had many teachers throughout the years that have had a great impact on my attitude toward education. No instructor however has had such a huge impact in my life as Miss Mindy Sopher. I first saw her name as my academic advisor listed in My Pack Portal, or my online account at NC State. I had no idea what type of experience I would have with her. Last summer before my freshman year, I sent her an email introducing myself and she was quite impressed by my ambitions, especially becoming a “geographical engineer.” I couldn’t wait to meet her in person at my orientation.
When I was a senior, I was running around with a To Do List a mile long. I was quite independent because of all of my extra-curriculars. I was barely home and I had to plan my life weeks in advanced. I had superhuman time management skills and organization because I needed to. My friends told me multiple times that they were surprised with the amount of work that I did.
I don't normally get home until 9:00 at night and that gives me a little time to be able to do my homework and still eat and I have that schedule from Monday Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday and on Saturdays I have it for 4 hours I worked there my school struggles with my ADHD and my out of school struggles to and by that 4 years I got A's and B's and that's it on my report card but this year I've been going above and beyond and I have been a straight-A student all year long I'm proud of myself for doing this and being able to work through my struggles. I have volunteered for years and I'm going to 4 years to come. I have helped clean up the environment every year and I I do the project clean stream I go all out every year my friends and I. Back last year by ourselves over 10 bags of Stuff Plus Rusty poles that we found in our Woods. I've cleaned up my neighborhood and my town 4 years and I feel great about it I feel like I'm making a difference in our environment.
You have to have a job, pay bills, and you have to pay for everything you want. This was the first time that I felt majorly responsible for something in my life. Then I realized I was responsible for many other things as well: doing my homework, keeping track of all my belongings, and making sure I wear my contacts or suffer not being able to see 10 feet in front of me. At the state competition we placed second and got to go to globals. It took place in Tennessee and was the first time I was hundreds of miles away from my parents.
Since anyone can remember women have not had the same privileges as men. For two women they have made history when they graduated from an elite army ranger school, Kristen Griest and Shaye Haver. Griest and Haver had an ongoing class August fifteen at Fort Benning in Georgia. There was a countless deal of speculations that the standards were lowered for the women. But they were required to complete everything the men were required to complete.
While interviewing Anna, I learned many interesting things about her family life, school activities, and hobbies. The first topic Anna and I discussed was her family life. Anna is a 16 year old junior who attends Hempfield Area Senior High School. She was born on March 17, 1999 in Mt. Pleasant PA. She lived there until her parents got a divorce.
no2 one really won this war because they both retreated at the same time since so many people had died, and all around it was brutal and horrifying and a war we would surely never forget. The North has been known for having a larger amount of soldiers then the south (Confederates). So far this has been the most bloodiest most terrifying battle of all because yesterday was the most Americans that have died in two battles combined. We will always and forever remember this day as the worst day in the history. Although almost a year part these two battles are both equally bad and very devastating to people all around the world and family and friends.
