I believe hard work and a strong work ethic to be imperative in achieving success and finding genuine happiness. While it may cause stress and pain in the short term, obtaining the ability to push through and overcome obstacles that every person faces in life leads to long term happiness and success. Growing up, I moved several times, and as a result I have faced multiple uncomfortable, difficult situations. Therefore, I have grown in character, leaving positive impacts on my relationships, school work, athletics, and more. Specifically, I improved immensely in cross country this last season, a sport I thoroughly enjoy and am extremely dedicated to.

For example, Zaevion Dobson jumps in front of two girls to protect them and Obama praises him, “He gave his life to save theirs - an act of heroism a lot bigger than anything we should expect from a fifteen year old”(Obama). This boy was a quick thinker and had to believe in himself to do what he did. He is a great hero. Zaevion Dobson is a great example of a hero because he has all the traits of a hero. He saw people with guns approaching where he was hanging out with his friends, and quickly thinking,
Actually, I achieved Eagle scout and am very proud of that achievement. I would love to see all of our boys achieve that status as well. Scouting was an important role in my youth and I feel it truly shaped my character today.
Most everyone has their own opinion of what an ideal hero is. Heros are definitely impactful in our lives, and play large roles in them. In my opinion, a hero is loyal, kind, and courageous person. I can only recognize a few people in my life who fall under all three of those categories, however while reading The Odyssey, Odysseus stood out significantly as a hero. Throughout the epic, he displayed countless acts of courage and bravery.
One theme that is very prominent in Winterdance is the idea that hard work can bring great rewards. One time when this theme appears in the book is in the prelude when, after a night of luck and survival Paulsen takes in the gorgeous scenery all around him. “I let them run until they settled and immersed myself in the run and the beauty of the mountains.” This quote shows how after a night of barely surviving Paulsen is rewarded with great beauty and peace. All throughout the book this theme pops up when, after long hard journeys he is surprised and delighted in the rewards to be

I described this waterfall as a “godsend” and a “prize”, because after hiking for so long on this excursion we finally found something worthwhile. I remember hitting a second wind of sorts; the waterfall satisfied my hunger for adventure and

Thank you, dear Lord, for the gifts you have showered on me last fiesta. Thank you for the blessings of vacation and rest.

Mr. Diggs enjoys bursts of adrenaline in action. The “action” he describes within my interviews is a superb and fascinating definition. It is highly unique for his taste, considering he was a part of the Marine Corps for eleven years. From hunting to fishing, the wilderness is his domain to feel exhilarating euphoria and nostalgia. It is gleeful anticipation: a drive that prompts an accelerating heart towards a tempo of fortissimo.
This is where the students get to perform any kind of talent they possess in front of the school and community members that choose to come. The activities and events we host are always very fun and exciting. I have been a volunteer since my freshman year of high school, which is when they allow you to be a volunteer.

I feel that this volunteer project does benefit both me and the recipients, because I get to experience such an amazing act of kindness that changes a person 's life forever.
Exploration is the act of searching for the purpose of discovery of information or resources. Exploring was exactly what drove the thrill in Lewis and Clark’s life.
