In the end, while only half of the students in the FIG attended, I was able to provide an atmosphere where they could relax and have fun. This was also the most rewarding experience I had the entire semester, as not only was I able to effectively plan an event that brought the group closer together, but I very positive feedback from the students, who relayed that with my help, were able to make a smooth transition into
Tuesday and wednesday went by and thursday and friday were just scrimmage days. After school thursday we stretched and got warmed up then got straight to business we picked teams and started playing I didn 't think the teams were that fair but I didn 't really care I just had to play my game I started down with the freshman and sophomore like every other freshman but i wasn 't regular like them after a few games past the coaches seen that a had some talent and that I should be moved up with the jv and the varsity players so the coach plaste me in the other gym with the more advanced players and put me on a team as soon as i started playing with the older guys I noticed an immediate change in paste I started breathing harder my heart rate shot up and they were just way bigger than me but I had to make it work somehow I knew I wasn 't the best one out there but I hustled a lot and gave it my all and hoped that 's what coach was looking for.
I was able to learn how to organize and run a workshop and that gives me good experience in the future. I have never worked with homeless families before and this was a great learning experience because I would be able to better understand how to work with homeless families in the future. During this workshop, I had the ability to use all the counseling skills that I have learned in the program with real people and it was great to see myself be successful with the attendees. After this program, I was leaning on working with individuals with mental health and substance abuse disorders but now I will also consider homeless families moving
And a leader does not let themselves down just because my school did not choose me as a nominee I did not give up I proceeded and well I got nominated by my summer job Where I worked in the courthouse. I believe this shows how I can persevere and always tried to overcome the obstacle for me. I remember the night I got home and i open my computer to see my email and I see an email from Posse saying that I was nominated I was so happy I could not stop smiling.
I anticipated that it would be fairly easy to make friends because all the other kids were experiencing a big change as well. However, on the first day of school, I only made a few acquaintances. I felt very disappointed in myself and told myself that tomorrow will be a better day. As a result, I began to socialize more and I had the best friend group anyone could ask for. Moving gave me the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone and become less timid.
His doubts of my seriousness student were palpable, and there due to my minimal oral participation in the class. Though I understood where he was coming from, I saw myself as more of a reticent but engaged student, completely capable of wrestling with a course like AP US. He agreed to let me take the entrance test after weeks of constant inquiry. After a month of waiting I received an email say that I had been accepted into the class. When I ecstatically approached him the next day and questioned him about the test, he said that I was ready for a class of a higher level and that mine was one of the best essays overall.
The event met my expectations and even more. I did not know that I would get as much information as I did and that the faculty would be so voluntary to help. At first, I assumed that I would walk around to each of the tables, pick up information sheets, and take it with me to look over myself later on. But to my surprise, everyone was very helpful
Due to this whole semester of bullying from this player I had a strong sense of dissent towards the players on team not allowing me to have a team bond that I experienced before this year. I hindered greatly from having confidence of myself which ultimately led me to have a indifferent beginning to my high school career. Following that year I made sure every season returning to soccer in the fall, that all freshman and new players were welcomed and felt like this team was a group of people they could count on no matter
In the years since I entered school, to the moment that my cap left my hand, I had grown into an entirely new version of myself. The freedom of college in combination with the guidance of so many teachers had led me to turn every negative aspect of myself into something new. With the pride I had gained in being part of something bigger, I became diligent and wholly interested in my studies. I had met so many interesting people who helped me break from my shell, and in doing so I had met some of the greatest friends I have ever had.
Ms. Jones helped get me started by editing my first few pages because they were rough. Once I saw how she wanted me to write the paper I just started typing away. I decided to complete the paper a few pages a night and I was really glad that I did that because I was never stressed out because of my paper. I actually think my junior paper was more stressful, maybe that 's because I had a full class load. Overall, graduation project hasn 't been bad at all.
As a matter of fact, telling my guidance counselor I hoped for USC Upstate to be the school I attend was a surprise. In all the senior meetings she had, I was the only student who even considered USC Upstate as an option. However, that didn 't stop me from looking. I like being able to
Of course, that was more of a scare tactic to make sure we weren’t bad kids. The exchange from eighth grade to freshman year was actually pretty easy. Most high school teachers are surprisingly nice and lenient when it comes to certain assignments and things, and a lot of them sympathize with your problems. My first problem was trying to find people I could talk to because most of my friends were divided among other classes and I, being the only teenager in the world without a cellphone, was not able
I feel that I was triumphant in my first year of college with the help of believing that there have been many people that have graduated college, so why can I not do this. Additionally, having a great support system back home and at Chico helped greatly in the transition to the new environment of Chico State. Also, learning from my mistakes in high school of not getting the best grades because of lack of effort helped me become a strong student academically at Chico State in my first two semesters, due to not wanting to repeat the past. My last example of success in my life is being more outgoing and being able to hold a conversation with I person I just met a few minutes. When I was younger I was very shy and could not even look people in the eye when I was talking to them.
but I think I executed it successfully enough. Looking back on it, I do not think there are any drastic changed I would have done to my project, he incarceration rates are always changing after all. I am even proud that I was able to reconnect my project back to the book because almost everyone in the class failed to say where their research came from and I did that and
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.
