In my eyes this is the path I wanted to be on, Palumbo is the place for me to start my future. Me working hard got me into one of the best schools in Philly because of the good grades that I got. This shaped my present life because it showed me that as long as you work hard and stay concentrated you can get whatever you set your mind to.
This scholarship is a wonderful opportunity for students of GVSU, and I am honored to be considered for this scholarship. I believe that I am a great applicant for this scholarship, and that I deserve this scholarship. One reason I deserve this scholarship is because of my strong academic courses. Throughout my high school career, I pushed myself academically by taking a total of 10 AP classes and 7 honors classes.

It states in the story Lupe, “never missed one day of elementary school. She had received a small trophy for this honor and had been congratulated by the mayor.” This shows me that school is very important for Lupe because she is smart, good at it, and she is dedicated. In addition Lupe got straight A’s and she said she had a razor sharp mind. Straight A’s are hard to get and this proves that she is smart. Another example is that Lupe wins lots of contests.

She reveals that there were other people who tried to help Tom, even though the outcome was unfavorable for them. Even though this could’ve given Tom an advantage, there was no possible outcome that would’ve been in Tom’s favor. When Scout asks him why he already knows why Tom won’t win the trial, Atticus immediately says, “Simply because we were licked a hundred years before we started” (Lee 78). Atticus knew that even with all of the advantages Tom could receive, there would be no way to win the trial. Due to the other testimonies, along with Bob Ewell’s tough, cruel reputation, Tom was pre-destined to be declared guilty, never having a chance to present his testimony to an unbiased
The opposite of self-control is to lose control of him/herself in difficult situations. Without self-control the world would be in chaos. People would say and do whatever they like, good or bad and there probably wouldn’t be much of a crime prevention. In To Kill A Mockingbird, a few of the characters have shown self-control. One example,
Therefore, Maximus is not a tragic hero. He was a heart in our hearts, but not a tragic hero accoriding to rule. He was very close to making the cut but he just missed. If only he had a tragic flaw that kept holding him back from succeeding he would’ve officially considered a tragic hero. Since he didn’t he is not considered a tragic
Lying is really pointless, and if someone lies and then they get caught, the outcome will most likely be worse than what it would have been if the truth was told in the first place. So many problems can be avoided and bad situations can be resolved as long as the complete truth is told. In conclusion, people will tell lies, and in Abigail and Mary’s case, go to drastic measures to get what they want. However, after going through all the work of lying and making people believe them, the outcomes aren't always what is planned. Although the court believed Abigail’s accusation about Elizabeth, she did not get what she wanted because John was hanged with Elizabeth.
