My history as a writer has been a bit of a struggle of slow development. From a young age I had a hard time with spelling and this is still a trouble area for me, even with the help of autocorrect. As I grew in age and as a writer my problematic area became not including enough nitty gritty details. My bad experiences that I recall would always involve the start of writing because I struggle with beginning paragraphs. Also, I tend to use the ending paragraph to just repeat myself, so overall my first and last paragraphs are usually shit. I find that I usually have more success when writing about something that I truly enjoy and struggle when talking about something I do not really care about. Both my parents were minimal to no help with writing

Nobody is really how they seem. In the book “Pathways to Bliss” the author Joseph Campbell explains that Carl Jung, the Swiss psychiatrist, tried to define the many parts of the human personality. In the explanations, he mentioned a big part of the human psyche, the Persona. He says, “Society has a number of roles that we need to play. We assume these roles just as an actor might slip into different pieces of a costume” (Campbell 71). Everyone has many of these costumes or masks; some of these include your Persona with your friends, family, and even your professional interactions. When I was offered the opportunity for a job interview, I put on a show with my most professional Persona in order

When embarking on a doctoral journey, it is important to keep an open mind and realize that the journey will lead to a whole self-transformation. During each step of the doctoral process, students will learn, grow, and change. Their ideas will be reformed as they develop into critical and analytic thinkers in their new scholarly environments. Throughout the journey, there are many contributing factors which lead to scholarly transformation, some of which may include sociocultural experiences and perceptions, developmental networks, and explanations of academic norms. Taking a deeper look at each of these elements within a doctoral environment can lead to a better understanding of how individual experiences and visions
The summer going into my Junior year of high school, I started volunteering at a retirement community called The Legacy down the road. I helped out by playing games with residents, talking to them, and helping with the weekly socials where we serve treats like pie and ice cream. Not many of my friends understood why I would take the time out of my day and spend it at The Legacy. To answer their question, it is because many of the residents at The Legacy do not have family nearby and have not seen their children, sisters, brothers, etc. in many years, so even a simple conversation with them can really brighten their day. The day that I realized the impact I had on the residents at Legacy was when they started remembering my name and started
My academic writing has predominantly taken place in AP English and Literature courses in high school. English 1102 is the first writing class I have taken at ISU, considering this is my first year of college. In AP English, we focused a lot on analysis and finding the theme, as well as other rhetorical devices in a wide variety of literature. In high school, I did not learn anything about APA style. However, MLA style and format was heavily emphasized by every English teacher I had.

“Be nice to the environment. Be nice to animals. Be nice to people. If you do that, you will leave a mark on the world.” This is one of my favorite quotes by Enock Maregesi because it summarizes what I aspire to be. When I graduate high school in the next year and a half, I would like to attend a Texas university and become an environmental engineer. On my mind are Texas State University and A&M. Currently, I am taking the classes I believe will help me follow this career, such as AP Physics, Pre-AP pre-calculus, and engineering design at the Center for Careers and Technical Education. I am a member of the National Honor Society at my school, and I volunteer at school and in my community. I am also a member of my school’s theatre club. We put

The book, Biography and History by Barbara Caine, was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2010. This work explored and discussed the complex relationship between history and biography, the changes within the field of biography over time, and acts as an essential introduction for contemporary biographers. While there are many areas that are repeated and stressed throughout the book, the main argument supports the legitimacy of biography as a field both within the field of history and in its own right.
