Throughout the years I have been a hard worker, if I start a job I finish it (unless something serious gets in the way) I am dedicated to what I love and I love learning new things. For the past four years I have been attending Valley High School and I love it! This school has taught me how to be a better person, how to be a leader, and how to stand up for what I believe in. I would love to be able to continue my education, it means a great amount to me! My family isn’t extremely wealthy, I was raised to be independent, that means I will be paying for my own education.
Competition only occurs when one reaches the junior year of college because the availability decreases as the number of years increase, since Warhawk Academy has exclusive features such as; discounts on books, un-restricted parking, and early access to technology. Selectiveness is not a major concern because as long as one keeps a grade-point average of a 3.8, admission will be granted. Lastly, other organizations might mention the attitude of the members. According to Bentley University, entering into organizations will help one find out about themselves: and this “self-awareness will be beneficial in your future career.” Members are required to show respect and have leadership skills in all situations to successfully accomplish this
Like everyone, I have weaknesses thats make me fall but, I also have strengths that help me get right back up. Spending nearly third-teen years in education not counting four plus years that will be spent in college, motivation is what will be need to get us threw the failures and help achieve our goals. Threw grade school and high school I thought of myself as a “slow learn”. I new I needed help but never asked for it. Reading “brainology” by Carol Dweck showed me I have a “fixed mindset”.
I strongly feel that Gatton Academy is the right place for me to finish high school. At my high school, I’ve struggled with lacking curriculum and instruction, with little to no challenge provided for me. Gatton Academy will be able to provide me with the tools and resources I need to excel to the best of my abilities. Not only will Gatton provide rigorous coursework, but it will help prepare me even more so for life as an adult. The extended freedoms that come with living away from home – on a college campus, no less – are something that many people would consider taking advantage of.
The most important thing for me is an enjoyable environment in which my potential for learning can flourish. Coming to UWSP I found myself missing that environment, everything else I found enjoyable except the environment for learning. I need my own space so I could focus in my studies, and sadly it was too late when I finally realized that the dorm life it 's not for me. I was a high honors student in high school and I wish I could transfer that into college, but this semester has been extra hard to keep up with regular hours of studying. Hopefully with the move to UWM could guarantee me a safe and enjoyable place where I can focus on my studies and future.
This information is also important to know because though I 'm a freshman small classrooms are great to have because its awesome for teachers/ professors to be one on one with the student. So if you are one of those people who stresses out on which path to take, collage, trade school or not at all, trade school is good to start with. Cost affective, graduation timeline is shorter, and benefit people that learn better in smaller class 's. All of this information is great to know so you don 't stress out any more about where to go or what to do with your life after high school. Don 't pull you hair out and pick Trade school for your life after
So one dream may be set because George lowered his standards due to not achieving his actual dream. Not following your dreams because of obstacles and adversity, may shape you on who you are going to become, but facing those fears really shape you on who you are supposed to be. People take life-long goals for granite, and will give up on them too easily, but they must fight the adversity and overcome obstacles in order to achieve your full self. George and Lennie had set out for one common goal, although through recurring obstacles, dreams are broken and characters are not to be found. Now think, have you ever set a goal, and never followed through?
My ultimate endeavor since attending community college has been my involvement in school, specifically with Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. As an engineering major I am limited to a diminutive amount of free time, due to the quantity and difficulty of my classes. However, this limitation and the fact that my ride to school is a two hour trip on public transportation, has not stopped me from participating in extracurricular activities. Applying my time management and responsibility skills that I acquired from taking several math base classes at the same time, I managed to become a member of clubs and attain leadership roles. I first became the Vice President of Service, for Phi Theta Kappa and organized service events on campus and outside of campus.
Most of them do finish high school and by that I mean they do graduate. From that point on they don’t really think of a college thing so they stick with a job easy for them to do. As long as they have and education and money coming in they are satisfied. If you ever stumble in the chance to know an Illegal family get to know their story. The parents just as any others, are working hard to pay for the education of their children.
Since then my only responsibility has been to take everything I can from the education that I am offered. I consider taking the education I am offered to be my responsibility to America because by studying for the tests, paying attention in class, and doing homework my overall education allows me to become a better person, it allows me to grow in knowledge and not make the same mistakes that were made in the past. To see all of the people in history who have failed, and not given up just because their experiment did not work for 9,999 times. Education allows me to be someone that can give to the world and our country instead of taking. It allows me to build character, to become a better person who can keep going and not give up in life, and be someone who can make our country even greater than it already is.
Every high school student should attend college in the time they have after graduating because you learn so many things, even in one semester. Here a person learns a lot of academics but also gets a little knowledge of being independent. I am here at the University of Alaska Fairbanks as a freshmen to major in civil engineering and minor in the Inupiaq language. My goal is to go home to either be an Inupiaq teacher or any occupation relating to or needing the use of a civil engineering degree. After my mom left me to be an adult, I’ve learned a lot on how to be on my own.
Transitioning from high school to college has many hardships; however, my most difficult struggle is mentally realizing that I am now an actual college student who cannot have any faults. Back in high school, I was able to study lightheartedly because there was no money involved, and second chances were offered on assessments. In present time, I have to do well on an exam the first time it is given with the mindset of fulfilling the expectations of my scholarship donors and others. Since I am not the biggest fan of my major, I miss the high school version of Heather who was able to dream and imagine where she would be after graduating. My distress is realizing that the people I shared my interests to have gained and is out accomplishing them
Once I learned what is required of me, I enjoy doing it without someone standing over me this makes me nervous. I enjoy multitasking in order to get things done in a timely matter. Confluence One of the risk I have taken was leaving publixs a company I was with for 17 years that was very scary leaving . Now my new job is collection which is a challenge now I 'm on the phone with customers instead of seeing them face to face when I was with publix And now I 'm going back to school to get my degree in early childhood education, wow. With the help of the learning pattern, I will be using the sequence to make sure that I complete my school assignments by doing the quiz first and follow through with the discussions and the assignments to ensure that all weekly assignments are completed on time.
This caused a period of many months where I felt alone. It was not until I tried to make things up with them that I realized that they missed the old happy me, and that they wanted to make up. This event made me realize that the best thing for people like me is to try to be involved and happy with others. I on several occasions asked my anxiety the same question as Jodi Aman, “why won 't you just leave me alone?” but I knew that getting angry at anything I could would only cause more worry. I also realized that others with this issue are more help then you could ever realize, and that you should always want to accept help from them.
I can honestly say that the reason I want to go to college is because this is going to be the last time before I enter the work force that I can be intellectually and academically challenged, where I can learn much about all the things I wanted to learn about, with friends who were as dedicated to learning and the pursuit of knowledge as I am. I often feel a lack of knowledge about something--colleges might call it "intellectual curiosity," but it 's that sense that you learn something, but you don 't feel that you 've learned it fully. I don 't know if people reading this know what I mean. For instance, after I took my AP Calculus class I loved calculus, and I didn 't feel that one year of it was enough. That drove me to go out and learn more about calculus on my own, but it would be much better to share that experience with others.
