Coming to Job Corps made me realize a lot about myself including how much potential I have within myself. Before coming here I wasn’t as focused as I should have been when it comes to me getting my education. Leaving school early or just not showing up at all became a routine for me. The school I was attending wasn’t as good of a school to even want to show up at. The kids there was very disrespectful which made it hard for those who wanted to learn.
As a senior at Ashley High School in New Hanover County, you have to complete a senior project. This project singlehandedly determines whether you graduate or not. It was second semester, my classmates and I were sitting in Mrs. Ventre 's class knowing exactly what was coming. We were scared, nervous, intimidated, and so much more. The way she helped me through this huge project has stuck with me to this day.
One of my most difficult academic challenges that I have faced was in my 11th grade trigonometry class. The problem that I faced was that for the entire 1st semester we didn 't have an actual math teacher. Throughout the entire semester, different substitute teachers switched in and out of the class.

This challenge was significant to me because all of the odds seemed to stack up against my class and me.

Every time that a group project is assigned I look everywhere in search of hardworking people, but unfortunately this is rare nowadays. I personally do not like working with a group of people, it is a waste of our time for a number of reasons. People are more dependent on one another and expect the job to be done for them without even trying. This affects the way we are now, things are not supposed to be easy and just magically be solved; it defeats the purpose of working together with each other and learning. I agree that more people can serve as a power source for more research, but it still isn’t sufficient enough for those who just act like fools and don’t get their work done; the one’s that are goofing around can distract the rest of the group members and convince them to join the dark
The Hero’s Journey is something that every human being goes through whether they realize it or not. We all go through different obstacles, some being more difficult than others, but at the end of the day we are all connected by the Hero’s Journey. We start with the separation stage, move on to the initiation stage, and then end up in the return stage. I myself have just gone through a cycle of the Hero’s Journey, when I happened to get my first B in a class, AP Spanish Language. It all started last year, freshman year, when all of the students were picking their classes for the following school year on Naviance.
Locating public transportation routes and finding times to fit in with my schedule was extremely difficult, and would have been much more so without the aid of technology. Additionally, life stressors such as young children or a full-time job could make the trip much more challenging. Not only was the office inaccessible, but it was unwelcoming and sterile.

Throughout this experience, I realized how challenging the public service system is to access and use, resulting in frustration for many of those seeking help, especially for people with language barriers or disabilities.
At that moment, I decided I would no longer have one person I wanted to work towards; instead, I use several co-workers’ traits some specifics being stronger than others. Overall, common errors in judgement occur frequently, it is important to understand the errors and avoid
My biggest problem at the Career Fair was that I was expecting for the employers to ask questions and I found that I had to lead the conversations. It was difficult to figure out what to do or say to the employers, I felt very out of place and out of my
Therefore, we must learn how to interact with one another in appropriate manners for each interacting individual. For instance, I have always been timid when working with a physician, because I am stuck on the idea that he or she may be too intelligent for me. I believed that we did not have compatible minds, so communicating with an individual such as a doctor would lead to lack of comprehension to my end. Therefore, uncomfortable feelings may arise, leading to a lack of collaboration. This scenario clearly changed, due to the fact that the physicians whom I have worked with have shown me otherwise, and prodigious teamwork has driven from there.
The lack of communication can put the workplace in trouble. The reason why communication is a problem may consist of many different personalities and level of skills.

Deana stated that the personality conflicts and personal bias causes the communication to come to a halt.
I would gain look to gain their support by listening to the concerns that they have. Many times people do not take part in change because they feel that their voice will not be herd. I feel that in order for change to happen we needed to have as many individuals as active in the process as possible. This issue I feel would have bring about many stumbling blocks. This issue tackles a major issue in our society and affects the well being of it.
Once I was officially placed at The Mercy Center, I was nervous and concerned that it may be highly structured, which would make it difficult to interact with the clients. I feared the population I would be serving would not positively react to me, since they already had a routine with the staff. There was also an issue of my role
When working with highschoolers in an alternative educational setting one must go into work with the idea that you will face problems. With those problems you must manage and address each situation accordingly.

This required myself to go into work every day with plans and goals for the current day and advice and lessons from the previous day.
