Having two older brothers she learned to hold her own. Bethany’s brothers inspired her to work hard and get on their level (Hamilton 35). The boys played many rough sports and Bethany was right along with them and was like one of the boys (Hamilton 37 & 38). Bethany had learned to surf at five years old (Hamilton 39). Once she was able to catch waves without help; she was entered in local competitions (Hamilton 40).
When I walked into the pool area on my first day of high school swimming practice in seventh grade, I made two goals for myself to accomplish during my high school swimming career: break the Sartell school record of 55.88 seconds in the 100 yard backstroke and win the MSHSL Class A State Championship in that event as well. For six years, I trained everyday with these goals in the back of my mind. After numerous trips to the State meet, I had yet to achieve what I had set out to do. When I qualified for the State meet my senior year of high school, it was my last opportunity to turn my goals into a reality. My senior year State meet was different than previous years.
This resulted in a very intense feeding campaign that extended over three weeks. Every day at dusk someone in our club visited the swims to feed the fish. The results didn’t come immediately, early in the season the fishing was slow but after several weeks you actually could catch several crucian carps at one night. The next year we noticed that we didn’t have to use such a massive baiting campaign. The results came faster and after a week or so the fishing was at it’s peak.
I loved that they showed all the people in the community she worked with helping her spell the final word. Akeelah and the Bee showcases the message of the courage it takes to overcome obstacles in life,the importance of being who you are, and that these traits will help you reach your goals. Akeelah accomplishes this with help from the community and by proving the stereotypes wrong. This successful movie has given other girls like Akeelah to not let other people or ideas stop them from doing the things that make them who they
After traveling I moved again to Colorado where I got a job working with adults with disabilities and also volunteer every week with the adaptive sports program. The joy I found that one day in the ocean is one I get to recreate day after day. The ability to create in others a sense of independence, strength, safety and acceptance is what I hope to find every day, in my actions and my career. It is because of these values that I stride to become a lawyer. To give back that hope, and that determination.
Volunteering is very important; it is both vital to the people receiving aid as it satisfies their needs, and it is important to those administering aid as it gives them joy and helps them become better people. The reason I volunteered for St. Margaret 's Fair was so I could finally stop sitting around and get to work. When I saw the opportunity to do something important, I grasped at it; I selected the ring toss game was because I felt it would be fun and important. I do believe my job at the St. Margaret 's Fair was very important as it both collected money for those in need and, at the same time, instilled me with a love of volunteering. The purpose of the fair was to collect money for humanitarian efforts in the local area.
The bongo net, then towing 30 minute sub-surface from each station. Figure 2: Bongo net (mesh size 500 µm, mouth diameter 0.3m and length 1.3m). v. Sukumaran et al., (2014) use a cast net measuring 2.5 m long, with a mesh size varying from 7 mm at the base and 15 mm at the apex was employed in the collection of fish throughout the period of study and the net was hauled 10 times during every collection at the sampling site. vi. Mwaluma (2010) studied community structure and spatio-temporal variability of ichtyoplankton in Kenyan Coastal waters method use the light trap fabrication and deployment.
Last year I completed the NCIS course, this lasted 3 weeks where I not only completed team activities, fund raising & volunteering but also had the opportunity to live independently, helping me set up for university life. I enjoy keeping fit, this is mixture of Gym, Swimming & Running. My diving & science studies have inspired me to learn more about this fragile & largely undiscovered eco system. I have worked hard to build up key skills needed to become a valuable student & ensure I can make a significant contribution to this field, & secure a role as a professional & respected Marine
I thought that this would be a great way to develop a better understanding of the career and what it takes to care for others. The STNA classes I completed to receive certification and the work as a patient aid that followed helped me confirm that I was making the right choice with respect to my career choice. I worked as a personal care aid in an assisted living home to gain knowledge and experience and I am extremely grateful for that opportunity. Working in the health care field provided a chance to care for the elderly and watch nurses do their jobs. I saw at first-hand the impact of diseases including, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, but more importantly, I witnessed the impact of empathy and good care had on a patient and their families.
The Turning Point in My Career In my time in the Navy I have had one supervisor that I could say really changed me. The first time meeting my Senior Chief was nothing more than a quick introduction of myself. Looking back at the time, to him I was just probably another young kid, fresh out of High School, who he had to keep out of trouble during our time together. I didn’t know it yet, but eventually this man would guide me and teach me things that would help me throughout my Naval career. I’ve learned a lot from his guidance and applied it to my job everyday so that I can teach other Sailors smart and safe practices.
