There is so much I can and will do in my new college community. I will initiate conversations about things that need to improve, encourage students to strive to make a difference, and volunteer around the campus whenever the opportunity is given. The future excites me and I am ready to become an active member of a new community. I have a lot of hope in the future of our developing community because of all the students recently inducted into the National Honor Society and the active adults always ready to lend a helping hand. If ever given the chance, I would come back and volunteer for my home community
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.
and I know I can continue to push this initiative. Upon graduation from the Haslam College of Business I plan to enroll in the two-year MBA program. Being able to earn my masters at UT will be incredibly beneficial for me as I begin my career right here in Tennessee. I cannot wait until I have the opportunity to give back to the university that has already done so much for me. I suppose the reason I have such a passion for the University of Tennessee is because the vol spirit is part of me.
Consequently, it impacted my approach to the performance because I knew I needed to significantly increase my focus and commitment to Kel Knight. This meant treating each rehearsal like the performance, working hard on staying in character and gaining an understanding of who that character was. Also, because Kath and Kim has a very funny script and we chose to make ours funny as well, I was required
As I continued, I discovered myself changing into a leader and becoming eager to help. Using the leadership from that field, I applied it to the rest of my life, becoming the Editor-in-Chief of my school’s yearbook and beginning to lead discussions in class instead of counting the minutes until next period. Immediately, Special Olympics forced me to be open-minded and more accepting. Instead of staring and feeling sorry for those special individuals, I grew aware and saw they craved friends, not sympathy. I recognized that merely because they are different, doesn't mean I must treat them differently.
I did not realize what a personal impact it would make as I wandered my way into the basement of Tawes Hall. From my first day volunteering at the Capital News Service (CNS), the University of Maryland’s student-ran broadcast news channel, I could tell I was surrounded by some hardworking people that were very passionate about what they were doing. This charismatic crew made me feel at home with their sense of support and cooperation, which lead to an educational environment that I highly enjoyed being a part of. Throughout my experience at CNS, I tried my hands with many different roles.
The Honor Society helped me stay motivated while enrolled in the Washington State University (WSU) Mechanical Engineering Program. I made the decision to go back to school and earn my Mechanical Engineering degree. It was a difficult decision at the time as I was working fulltime as a CNC (Computer Numerical Control) Programmer in the aerospace industry and my husband
The closest thing I can thin k of would be writing passages for a class I was taking in high school. At my school, we had a government class in which we had bi-weekly debates. We would split into small groups and discuss a political issue and write a small paper based on our stances. We would then read that aloud and try to sway our classmates into voting for our side. This required us to be very persuasive in our speech and text.
It all began, my last semester as a community college student, I was very anxious to start my last classes and finally be able to graduate. I remember waking up the first day of class and feeling my emotions rush all over the place, as I began my last couple of months at Porterville Community College. being really excited to take the last classes before graduating, but like always I left the toughest subject for last. I’ve never considered myself a good writer and this class made me remember that everyday. This class was English 101A with professor Stern, he is a very tall man with a big beard, and he has the type of personality that intimidates you right away.
(Only A Teacher, n.d.) I thought this was important to add to my paper because he felt like he connected to the students. One of McCourts worries was that the students would not be interested in what he has to teach, in reality they were really excited about it. In an interview conducted by Academy of Achievements, McCourt talks
During my high school career I have made a consistent effort to stay involved in both my school and community. Through clubs such as Key Club, National Art Honor Society, and National Honor Society I’ve been able to help out locally and globally in an abundance of ways. In Key club and NHS I am able to volunteer in traditional ways, but National Arts Honors Society allows me to contribute to my community and school in a creative way that stimulates people 's minds through art. Due to these activities having a significant impact on my life my future career options are based around what I have learned from them.
Author and Journalist, Gray Basnight came and spoke at Manchester High School about his journey as a journalist and fictional author. Basnight attended Manchester High School and graduated in 1971. He had his own column and was an editor for the school newspaper at Manchester. During his time at Manchester, Basnight would often drive his teacher, Ms. Reibsamen’s car to downtown Richmond in order to print their school newspaper.
Due to my position, I have organized multiple programs for the hall in order to make the overall atmosphere in Grier a comfortable. I have also grown very good at multitasking my various involvements on campus and have learned how to prioritize my work and remain orderly. I am a member of Alpha Xi Delta and also serve on the Panhellenic Council. I believe that it is important that I represent my sisterhood with respectability and grace. I aim to achieve this in my everyday and would love to have a chance to represent both Residents life and Greek life to the standards that they
Writing is a language. If we take simple words and bluntly put the phrases into paragraphs, it defies the meaning of this broad dialect. I, Abigail Platon, will not only understand this odd, foreign language but make it my own while painting a picture with the power of correct grammar and lines of beautiful word choice. The only way I can find a gateway to this dream is through, one, hard work on my own and, two, in Temple City’s English Honors class. Through this program, I can achieve the goals I desire to complete, either in the academic year or the “foreseeable” future.
