Motivation allows for an employee to work harder than he already is. Many employees tend to exhibit their ambition within careers which contain opportunities that grant the advancement to higher platforms. However, despite there being such a low amount of career advancement possibilities at McDonald’s, securing a job at the fast food restaurant did not prevent Marissa Nuñez from gaining and displaying motivation. Rather, obtaining this job sparked her desire to succeed from her first real day; she began her career with an idea to race her cousin, who was also a McDonald’s employee at the time; this race consisted of a goal which was to determine “who could get the most customers and who could fill the orders in fifty-nine seconds” (440). Although, this action was more trivial than not, it sparked Marissa Nuñez’ inspiration to strive without her even knowing.
More importantly I fell in love with the people who worked with food, owned restaurants, and planned special events. I was hired as a pastry cook at the Little America Hotel in Flagstaff, Arizona but that wasn’t enough. I worked as a dishwasher, pantry cook, banquet cook, and line cook. I loved every second of being in the kitchen but all I could think about was being in the front of the house. During my sixteen hour shifts I would often think, what is the perfect job for me?
Being an accountant and an assistant controller I earned a very good living and I was successful at my job but never felt passionate or enjoyed my job. At the same time my children were looking at colleges and contemplating their future careers. When they asked me what they should study I remember telling them to find a career you enjoy, something that makes you excited about going to work, be happy, and most of all try to make a difference. This started my investigation of other careers because I realized it was time to follow my own advice. The concept of being a FNP was first suggested in passing at one of my youngest son’s doctor appointments.
Becoming the Vice President of Public Relations for the Rho Beta Chapter is a Phi Theta Kappa activity that has had a profound impact on my life, both socially and academically. When I initially joined Phi Theta Kappa, I was unaware of the high caliber of company that I was joining. The Phi Theta Kappa community is one where members encourage each other to challenge themselves academically, and invest wholeheartedly in their community. Running for and holding an office in the Rho Beta Chapter has given me the opportunity to meet and develop relationships with my fellow members. Since holding this office, I have met and befriended many new people who continuously inspire me.

Unfortunately, I have not held any offices in the organizations above yet but I sure intend to. However, I have been a leader and mentor in many of the organizations. The National Society of Leadership and Success has taught me how to be an effective leader throughout my time here at Columbus State University. The Competitive Premedical Studies Program has allowed me to mentor those incoming students into the program and give helpful advice as how to make the most of the program. By being a part of the organizations listed above, I encounter many opportunities of community service and volunteer work that contribute to enhancing CSU and its community.
Restaurants have existed for many years and will continue to exist for many years to come. When it comes to creating a restaurant, there are many things that need to be considered. The hiring process plays an important role in creating a successful restaurant. The proper hiring process ensures that the appropriate people are hired for the right position in the establishment. Without the proper process, the restaurant could fail due to the lack of applicable personnel.
There are many different political socialization that people have but these are the main ones for me. The first political socialization i 'm going to talk about that I applies to me is family. The ways that family affects my political socialization are through members of family like my uncle and my dad. These individuals have influenced me through their jobs and the way they carry themselves, for example my dad owns his own restaurant and is a successful hard working person. I idolize my dad and hope to one day become even more successful than him and own my own business.
I was determined and motivated because I wanted to finally feel connected to a community where I could share and express my culture without feeling out of place. Not only did my sister and I learn the language, but we felt the need to had a better understanding on the cultures in society so we made it our duty to venture to new museums or famous restaurants to become familiar with a new perspective on society. I felt like a missing piece of myself was finally put together and I was now whole. The trip had only lasted three weeks and in that time I learned and began to understand a part of myself that had been missing my entire life. I will always cherish the amazing memories made in Korea for it was the beginning of a new understanding of
Time passes really fast and I have already worked as a part-time waiter in this Japanese restaurant for two and a half years. Today is my last day at work and I have a lot to share, not only the most memorable experience I had while working, but also what I have learnt since I chose this job. I remembered that why I chose Japanese restaurant is due to my curiosity on Japanese culture and cuisine. I remember that I was energetic and excited as I reckon that being surrounded by all sorts of Japanese food should be fun. However, thing did not go smoothly as I had expected at the beginning.
Growing up as a first-generation Mexican American was a huge advantage for me in that it allowed me to grow up in a culturally diverse community. I learned how to work well with people of all backgrounds and empathize with people from all walks of life. However, while being the first in my family to go to college was a momentous accomplishment, the lack of instruction and guidance lead me to commit many mistakes that could have been easily avoided during my first years at college. My timidity and downright arrogance lead me to believe that I did not need anyone’s assistance and thus I found myself denial that there was a problem in terms of my grades during my first semesters. I have since addressed this issue and have worked diligently to
Being a fast food worker for the past year and a half, I have been exposed to numerous different types of people, and most of them are not the same race as me. When I first started to get to know them, even though at times there was difficulty communicating, we were able to make it work and build stronger relationships. One of my favorite managers was Rose, a Hispanic woman who had been so kind to me. She was an example of someone who was able to teach me things about herself I could have stereotyped and not taken the time to learn anything about her as an individual. Growing up in Joliet, Illinois has always given me the opportunity to experience race relations on a regular basis, just due to the diversity of the city that I live in.
While education can open doors to your life, having the initiative to be successful is what really counts. I am determined and I have the desire to study Business but am lacking the financial support needed to achieve my goal. The Plant City Lions Club Scholarship would help me by giving me an opportunity to pursue my dream career. My desire is to be able to study in order to work and give back to my parents who have helped me accomplish graduating from Plant City High School with honors and with a weighted GPA of 4.7321.Receiving financial support will allow me to make a difference in the challenging world of Business. My parents have always supported me in everything, but unfortunately they cannot afford my college tuition.
