When I first started this course, I didn’t really know what to expect. I knew it would educate me on the matters of choosing a career and post-secondary life but I never realized how in-depth it would be. In the end, I learned so much from this course, I now have a post-secondary plan in mind, and I know which path I need to take to get there. When I look back on all I achieved in the two short weeks of this course, I am extremely proud of all I achieved.

Though testing is necessary with the current structure of evaluating students, there is a conscience effort to improve schooling for students. Hoping to stay teaching in Eastern Washington, I am excited to see teachers setting the foundation for change. I hope that I have the opportunity to not only help my students inside the classroom but also in a more political way that will help students that I am not teaching. Like many things that I’ve experienced in these last ten weeks of class, my thoughts on education have definitely been

My life and journey towards Cornell has been one characterized by struggle. Throughout my childhood, I was raised in two families which highly valued critical thinking and education. As such, I was always expected to ask “Why?” “Why?” was the question that could bring me an education. “Why?” could help me learn more about my surroundings and how I could improve them. I also asked that question when my mother and birth father divorced. I questioned why my father left and why my mom and I moved. What I realize now is that, without my parents divorcing, I could not have received the opportunities afforded to me.
During the spring 2016 semester I enrolled in physics II, organic chemistry II, and biochemistry, while also being a student researcher and participating in extracurricular activities.

I owe my ability to endure that semester to my ambition and the supportive community at Spelman. It was ambition that helped me through this difficult semester. My strong desire to learn the necessary material and have a satisfactory grade helped me by allowing me to expend all my possible resources to achieve the outcome I wanted.
Once you learn how to do something, you become so used to it that you forget the challenges you had to overcome in order to master it. I became aware of this as a counselor at Camp Casey one day in kites class. I was seated next to a fifth grader named Brandon, as we worked on decorating and constructing our kites. When it came time to tie the string to both sides, he was obviously struggling, so I offered to help him. I explained to him how to do it as I showed him an example of what to do with my kite. It took Brandon a couple tries to get the hang of it, but then completed it all by himself. The fact that I enjoyed this experience was rewarding enough but it was an extra bonus that I helped this little boy go through this whole process and overcome the challenge. Teaching him how to do it was way more satisfying than just doing it for him. Through hard work and perseverance he was successful. Making mistakes and having failure is all part of growth. My passion for
As I sit in the basement of the Lilly Library, surrounded by friends who have become family in a few short months, covered in calculus and EQ notes, and listening to some Duke Ellington jazz music for my Music 101 class, I can’t help but reflect on what this year has meant to me and my development as a student, athlete, brother, friend, and person. I entered Wabash College not exactly sure what to expect; I knew it was going to be different, but I also knew that with change I wanted to keep an open mind that was ready to learn and grow. Freshman tutorial and especially enduring questions are two classes that have pushed my boundaries as a person, forcing me to question core beliefs and ideas that seemed previously engrained in my mind. Throughout
