I wish to attend the GERI Summer Residential for multiple reasons, including the experience I will earn in my area of interest, the challenge I will receive, the relationships I will make, and information I will learn. I have always been interested in taking all opportunities I can to separate myself from everyone else. I wish to achieve and be the best person I can be academically. Foremost, I work extremely hard in class maintaining a solid GPA of 4.0. My high school courses consist of advanced placement courses and courses that are geared towards my interests.
My “supernatural aid” would come from all my teachers educating me so I am able to get into college and my parents who constantly remind and push me towards my goal. My “threshold would most likely be the transfer of my sophomore year of high school into my junior year. At this point in my life, I am slowly becoming an adult and taking on more responsibilities and starting to make larger life decisions. At this point in my life, I am passing into what will be some of the most important years of my life. My “threshold guardian: was most likely myself and my fears.
Always set goals and backups for your future! Study with your classmates together and test each other because if you teach each other you will master the lesson. When things get difficult don’t just give up, work for it and put all of your efforts! Remember that no one ever was born with a genius brain, we humans grow and learn each day! If you want to succeed you have to work for it!
I guess I did not want to disappoint myself because I know I can do it. I am just not that quite confident. I guess I wanted to have a better goal in life and be able to aim and accomplish a bigger dream rather than working for low wage paying job like my older brother. This then became my motivation to do better and work harder in class. I work harder than the rest of my classmates due to my limitations with my English.
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. This helped me in the long run because I had to move schools a second time. Towards the end of the year, I found out some news that shocked me. I had to be redistricted to a new middle school again because Howell Memorial Middle School, the middle school that I was attending at the time, was being changed into an elementary school.
Jane Doe was familiar with this theory because she took undergrad classes that discussed strength perspective material. I asked Jane Doe what strengths did she think she possess that other family members may not have? She replied with” I think a strength I bring to my family is finding resources. Working at this job has allowed me learn how to find resources for others and I’ve learned to apply these skills at home. Whenever my family needs to find something that may help with stability, they always ask me and it makes me feel good to help.
I believe that this program will help me continue on my quest to challenge myself and become the best person I can be. With every day being an opportunity to learn more, I plan to make the most of each and every day. There is nothing that can ever quench my thirst for knowledge, but I believe that the Honors Program can nurture my growing curiosity. I believe that I am a great fit for this amazing program, and can bring lively ideas to conversations and debates on any topic. The knowledge that I could gain from this program will help me become the best person I can be outside of this university upon completion of my four years.
I work hard in school and always an prepared when it comes to a quiz or a test. I understand that to qualify for National Honor Society you have to be strong in academics. I have worked hard to be where I am today. I've been on the gold honor roll every semester. I enjoy school and I'm blessed that I have the opportunity to attend such a great
As a member of a team, I had to fully commit myself, because my actions did not only have an effect on myself but my teammates as well. Giving 110% was something my parents had taught me to always do. I learned the importance of responsibility. I told my mom my junior year of high school that I wanted to play lacrosse in college. She had told me if I really wanted to play in college that I would have to work hard, practice more and focus on my grades.
Each time people ask me why I decided to become a teacher, I always travel back in my life at the time I was a teenager. My dream was to serve to my country and be admired for doing it properly. I wanted to be a Police Officer; however, I also wished to leave a legacy in people’s mind and hearts, something that could live on after my life was drained from this world. Mustafa Kemal mentioned; “A good teacher is like a candle; it consumes itself to light the way for others”. When I read that quote eight years ago, I realized I wanted to be that light who guides children’s path during their learning process, teach them how to become in future candles in a world of darkness, I wanted to be one of the reasons why they come to school, to be part of them not only as a teacher, but also as a family member, because I strongly believe what we do in life, echoes in eternity.
Rivera.Session1.Journal What made me want to go back to school was that I didn 't have anything else going for me after high school. I had two beautiful children in the process. I couldn 't find a job or anything it was hard on my own. CCU showed me that it doesn 't matter what your going threw It 's never to late to get an education. Everyone in my family was telling me to enroll back in school I have to admit I was kind of scared to but I 'm here today now back in school.
I wanted my parents and younger siblings to be proud of me. I went to school because my family would be proud of me. I was the first in my family to graduate from college. I saw this achievement as a collective goal because I hoped it will have a ripple effect in my family’s education. It has my 11 year old brother is constantly encouraging me to go back to school and obtain a Master’s Degree.
I know from experience that honors courses can be very challenging and stressful. Even when I am facing the hardest classes, I know that I must never give up. I put all the effort I possibly can into my work. Even when I receive grades that I am not so proud of, I never get discouraged. I am content knowing that I did my absolute best.
The first thing I needed was to pursue more education. I needed my B.A in Liberal Studies to be able to get my teaching credentials. Sharing my new goals and inspirations with my family was the first step, after sharing with my family my plans of pursuing more education, I immediately received lots of support and enjoyment through them. I had been the only person in a family of two children to graduated from a Community College, but now I was going further in my education, they were definitely proud of me. I was going to be the first to graduate from an University, that 's something my mom as a single mother wished she had accomplished.
UW-Eau Claire is an important school to me because of your great educational programs. Through my life I have switched the idea of what I wanted to do plenty of times. However, one idea always remained. I always wanted to be a teacher, and work with kids and be able to shape and work with the next generation of students. This past fall semester I have been taking a college course at UWGB through Bay Port.
