So you’re thinking about joining FFA, and you don’t know if it’s a good fit for you. You don’t think you fit the stereotype that is meant to be in FFA. First let's start off with what FFA stands for, it stands for Future Farmers of America. While FFA is the traditional name we had a name change in 1988 to show the diversity in agriculture that it is not only farming but a variety of different focuses. So even if you're not into farming there is more then likely something that you would find that you would enjoy.
How would you feel if someone you love didn’t remember who you are? That was my mother’s experience. My grand-mother Mrs. Mesidor, who died in 2004 at the age of 110 years old was diagnosed with the worse possibly disease “Alzheimer”. She didn’t remember her own kids or her grand-kids. That was a heart-breaking experience for the family.
I wanted to thank you again for allowing me to be a part of the HBCU Pride Summer Institute. The experience was enjoyable and enlightening. Since this experience, I have seriously questioned my career goals and direction. In fact, I really miss our quarterly self-assessments. They really provided a roadmap for growth. I also love working with Gina. She is awesome. I feel inspired, just as I did with Dr. Gamble, to stretch myself and knowledge base. I want to do more.
“The Atlanta Exposition Speech” by Booker T. Washington, “The Talented Tenth” but W.E.B. DuBois, and “The Negro’s Place in American Life at the Present Day” by T. Thomas Fortune were written during the end of the nineteenth century when African Americans were faced with great challenges on a range of different levels. These documents are very like one another considering they are all addressing the same issues, but I also feel like each of them are unique from one another because of the person who wrote them. Washington focuses more on an industrial education so the blacks can go to school. He has the whites to believe that it will also affect them and make things better for them at the time and that they will
This week, I attended an Open Speaker session at a local AA meeting. There were about 30 participants in the meeting. They were mostly white with ages ranging from childhood to older adult. There were a even number of men and women, and they were some couples in the audience.
When alcohol becomes to take control over your life, it is time to seek help because one cannot overcome this disease alone. For a long period of time I have had the curiosity of attending an Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) meeting. My curiosity to attend an A.A. meeting came from having many family members deal with harsh realities because of alcohol related issues such as DUI’s and family separations. The A.A group meeting that I attended was about forty-five minutes away from my house. I decided to attend an aa meeting not so close to my house because I wanted to experience a meeting that involved people from different ethnic backgrounds as oppose to the people that I am accustom to seeing in my neighborhood.
Thank you for allowing us to meet with you and Dr. Strickland on yesterday. I believe it is safe to say that our WPU team gained more knowledge on WTCC Veterans, but also the policies and procedures in which your program runs off of.
Here I am sitting on this bus. Things look different and I’m not quite sure I like it. I can’t see anybody; where did they go? You wouldn’t think that three years could really make that much of a difference in the way people live. Nobody wrote me the entire time I was locked up which kinda hurt me inside but I couldn’t do anything about it. I knew that my family wasn’t much of a family to write. But, it would’ve helped to see my family at least try to write me and try to contact me or see how I was doing.
First, our family's dynamics. Right, wrong, or indifferent, our family has dynamics that may not be in play in your "typical" student's family. I say this as a precursor to this... I believe your priorities and ours may not always match, but hopefully the success of Emma, the child of topic, does match. First of all, my husband and I both work advanced careers. Many days I leave as early as 6am and get home as late as 6pm, and some days, I work until 9pm or later. Jeremy and I switch off working late many times as well. I have two children with special needs and have hundreds of appointments each year to attend, which also means at times, I work in
Welcome to Org 555 course. I am so glad to have you in my course. My doctoral commencement was held in Nashville Tennessee. Lauren you cannot be travelling alone with your best friend alone. I need my buddy pass too. I am just kidding. Is it better to consult than work fulltime? Share a little light on it. You will learn new skills and knowledge from your peers and this course.
Thank you very much for presenting IMPACT 2020 for our Leadership Development Program Cohort IX last week. I appreciate you changing your schedule to meet and greet these leaders. If there is anything that I can do to assist your team or you, please let me know and I will do my very best to assist you! Thanks again!
Did you know that 1 in every 5 teenagers have abused prescription medications? If not, I bet you also didn’t know that about 40% of the teenagers who have abused these drugs obtain them from medicine cabinets in their own home. Teenage substance abuse has become one of the most prevalent issues in the United States today, and is continuing to spread to many other areas around the world. Due to the easiness and accessibility of substances, how they are advertised in mass media, and the amount of money that can be brought in from substances, it is no surprise that they are being abused more and more each day. To explain why substance abuse in teenagers has become so widespread and common, I will be using the Structural-Functional approach to
My aunt struggles with an addiction to prescription drugs after being prescribed pain medication for endometriosis for over 3 years. She found ways to continue to get these drugs 2 years after the doctors stop prescribing it too her. I don’t understand the disease and yet it is so common, so I am bringing you information that I have researched in the hopes that you all may understand it better as well.
When I was told I had to take Speech for my Associates degree I was outraged. Not only had I taken a speech class before, but I was exposed to multiple speech competitions in middle school. I did not see why it was necessary for me go through this class. I knew how to talk to people, I could write a speech in my sleep, and reciting information to others was something I believed I was efficient with. I was very wrong. Not only did this speech class teach me how to be a better speaker, it also exposed me to social concepts I had never thought about before. By taking this class, I learned more about society and how perception and language affects it, I learned how to work in a group setting, and learned more about myself as a person.
I just wanted to thank you and the VCOM staff again for your hospitality during my interview last Tuesday, November1. I thoroughly enjoyed the informative presentations, interactions with the students, and sharing my perspective of medicine with the faculty. Each encounter during the interview was just as constructive and genuine as my first encounter with VCOM back in 2012. I sincerely appreciate your interest in me amongst the multitudes of applicants, and I feel extremely honored to have met you al in person. I hope that the rest of this admissions cycle will be as pleasant for you, as you have made for me.
