If selected for admission, I plan to take advantage of IMSA’s unique learning opportunities by working diligently in all of my classes, joining clubs and teams to learn from my peers, and participating in Student Inquiry and Research to satisfy my curiosity and allow for more independent work. I come from a small high school with approximately one hundred students per class. Funding is a constant problem and learning opportunities are thus very limited. I’ve attempted to take as many science and math classes as possible, as well as world history, foreign language, and an advanced English course, but I still do not feel challenged. My school has done what it can to enhance my learning experience, but my math and science classes aren’t quite
I believe ASMSA is the right place for me to continue my studies because I believe that I will excel there. I am interested in learning some things that my current school does not offer as a course. ASMSA will offer me more opportunities to do things outside of school and in school that will prepare me for my time in college and after college. I want to be able to get up for school and be excited about what I will be doing that day, and I believe that ASMSA will provide me with this opportunity. I think that the school is the right fit for me and my learning style because I feel as if I need to be more advanced and learning things that I cannot at my current school. ASMSA will help me improve my skills and help me develop new ones in the two years that I will attend. I believe that this school will help me grow academically and socially.
The two weeks I tracked were November 6th through the 19th. I chose those days because I was paid on the 6th, and I wouldn’t be paid again until the 20th. By choosing those dates, I was able to see how much I spent from that paycheck and how much left over I actually had. I liked being able to see how much of my paycheck was left over by the time I was paid again. I use that extra money for a buffer in case there is something I have to spend a little extra money on, and so I always have money in my bank account.
I have made a contribution to the AVID program by spreading all the wonderful things AVID teaches you to my friends and relatives also how it can change your life positively. I have spoken with many friends as to why they should be considering the AVID program in high school in order for them to gain knowledge and learn important college factors so that when they move on they won’t have a difficult time in college. This contribution may not seem as much but I have also tried my hardest to earn a good grade for all the years that I have been taken AVID not only for a grade in the class but for others to see what I have learned throughout all the years that I have been in AVID program and what it can do to improve high school students who want to attend college and become successful trying to reach their goals and dreams.
Going to a university can encompass a variety of factors and meanings for each of the individuals that it applies to. Here, at ASU, there is an abundant amount of these backgrounds always coming forth and attending this university that helps fuel to the variety of why people attend such a higher level learning institution. As to how I contribute to this diverse pool is of the reason of my family and pressures placed onto me by them. I come from a fairly large family that consists of eight people, including myself. I am the oldest of five siblings and the first who has ever been able to graduate high school. With this in mind, it is obvious that I must be the role model for the younger bunch along with striving for better after my high school graduation. All my siblings are expected to follow in my footsteps which can at times be stressful because I want them to walk onto a even better path than I ever did in my school career path. With being the first in my family to ever graduate, my parents want me to be a good representation to combat the negative comments usually associated with people of Mexican descent and how they often do not get far in life.
I discovered Loma Linda University School of Medicine through a friend who urged me to apply knowing how much of a devout Christian I am. I am aware that LLUSM educates its students in the teachings of Christ, and teaches them to heal patients and make man whole as Christ did. This in itself requires an understanding of Christianity and its application to medicine as a career. As a future medical student, I recognize that I will be required to act according to these Christian ideals, a privilege that I look forward to. I admire LLUSM due to its ability to spread love to its patients and inform them of Christ’s ministry. I wholeheartedly agree with the philosophy; healing a patient is much more than treating the symptoms.
The Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science has been called the most diverse square mile in Mississippi. Before coming to MSMS I had never seen other children my age who were Asian, Indian, or any other race except for Caucasian and Mexican. I didn't have a chance to talk to other children about their cultures or beliefs until I came to MSMS. Being at MSMS gives me the opportunity to speak to one of the most diverse student bodies in Mississippi. I am able to listen to the different languages spoken by the children here such as Vietnamese, Korean, Hindi, and Spanish. I also get the chance to join cultural clubs established by the student body. Currently, I am a member of the Asian Student Association. The ASA meets monthly to discuss
This spring, I will be completing my first year of graduate school in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of New Mexico. I graduated with a B.S. Degree in Environmental Science from UNM last year and was the first in my family to earn a college degree. I transferred to UNM in the fall of 2012 and have had the opportunity to interact with many professors, which I feel helped to influence my decision for graduate school.
My name is Brittney Duffy and I transferred from the financial assistance department at Metro. I have been employed with Baptist for 3 years. I started off as a CNA at the heart hospital Downtown and transitioned into the patient financial department in 2015. I am currently working on my Bachelors at FSCJ for Supervision and Management and I will graduate in summer 2018. I am extremely excited to be joining the BMDA team and am looking forward to starting this new journey in my career.
I was born the fourth of December 1991 in Cranbrook British Columbia. I lived there for 18 years. Before joining the military I worked as a fry cook at a Burger King for three years and held part time jobs working for the College of the Rockies summer camp programs during the summer. My parents are currently living together in Cranbrook BC. My father works outside the province testing railway tracks for two months at a time, then returns home for two to three weeks. My mother acts as the main contact point of the family, she works as a financial clerk. I have a 22 year old sister who will be attending university in Calgary this September. I attended Mount Baker Secondary School in Cranbrook and graduated in 2009
USciences gives me the opportunity to attain higher education. By attaining higher education, I will be able to apply the knowledge and experiences I have gained in the workplace. Furthermore, USciences provides a great opportunity of various clinical settings, hands on experience, and allows me to be a part of a diverse group of individuals within the community. I believe hands on experience in various clinical settings will enhance my ability to provide better care for my patients. By enhancing my abilities, I will feel more confident in what I do in the future. Like any other career, I feel like it is important to feel confident in your job. For example, with physical therapy, patients are trusting the physical therapist to provide the best
It is a pleasure for me to write for admission into the AAEP program offered at your esteemed institution. When I was little, I met many teachers who constantly inspired and motivated me. Thus, I made the important life decision of becoming an educator in order to ensure that many more pillars of tomorrow can receive the attention, care, and quality education they deserve. I have not regretted my decision since then. After I graduated from the University of Education, I passed the highly competitive and challenging teacher qualification exam in my country with flying colors and soon began my prestigious career as an art teacher serving the needs of children in junior high schools nationwide. Teachers shoulder the responsibility of educating
If I am accepted to the Illinois Math and Science Academy, I would be so honored and grateful. I look forward to the hands-on curricular offered at IMSA. I wish to be well prepared for my future. I plan on using the opportunities given to take initiative, explore my curiosities, step outside my comfort zone, take charge of what I’m doing with confidence, think for myself, work on different challenges, and build my independence.
Pursing a career as a medical doctor is an opportunity for me to mentor youth in underserved populations. As a child, I was raised in the low income, urban community of Roxbury, MA. Although not as notorious today, the neighborhood had garnered negative attention for its high crime rates. My mother emigrated from Haiti and raised me as a single parent. Due to our financial circumstance, Roxbury became our permanent residence. I have always felt there was something lacking in Roxbury in comparison to other towns I visited. My teenage years were largely spent in the suburban town of Stoneham where I attended high school. There was a literal difference in air quality and a psychology contrast in future prospects. While native students of
