In summary, Nicola Tesla, a smart and persistent man, and took the world by storm. My dream job after graduation has to be the challenging and invigorating field of neurosurgery. Neurosurgery is a field that without a doubt extremely challenging in many ways. Neurosurgeons have to spend many hours a day in the taxing environment of a hospital. Neurosurgery is also a very well paying job. Neurosurgery has an average pay of over $300,000 per year, but many other professions have an average pay of $58,000, which is almost 6 times less than a neurosurgeon’s pay. Neurosurgery also has an extremely high employment rate. At the time of writing the employment rate for neurosurgeons is about 99%, yet the national employment rate is around 90%. Lastly, neurosurgery is a job with job security. Almost 96% of neurosurgeons quit their prior jobs and were not laid off. Neurosurgery is a field that requires excellent people skills and superb reflexes, which makes this my dream job. I am a soccer fanatic, Nicola Tesla loving, aspiring neurosurgeon who is a student at Blanchard Middle School. I relish every moment I spend with the inanimate, yet loving sport of soccer. I also am driven by my need to be like my honest and kind role model Nicola Tesla. As a person who is always looking for challenge, the exciting and

Nikola Tesla was born into a modest, Eastern European family, but had an interest in technology and inventing from an early age. Like many Europeans, he would move to America in search of greater opportunity and success. However, unlike most of his European counterparts, Tesla's achievements in electrical engineering would change the world forever. From electric motors to AC current to one of the hydroelectric dams in the world, his designs and inventions changed the way we live. While Nikola is a lesser known historic figure than other inventors of Industrial Revolution, he is one the most important engineers in modern history.
Everyone has different qualities and interests that make them unique individuals. After interviewing a fellow classmate of mine, Ruedi Kasabach, I have learned why he is the person he is today. Ruedi has lived with his family in Trenton New Jersey, his entire life. He is currently a boarder at Peddie. In his free time, Ruedi often watches tv, plays soccer, or spends quality time with his brother. In the future, Ruedi plans to take on a career focusing on sports. Ruedi’s hobbies, aspirations, and values demonstrate his active lifestyle and express his distinctive personality.
Last year on my first day of Honors Sophomore English with Ms. Webster, she asked us to write a page or two about us, or what we did during the summer. I remember (and look back at my copy that I still have) that I wrote about hiking the perimeter of Lost Lake the day after July 4th. Ironically, I spent the last three or so weeks of this summer at Lost Lake. This time, I wasn't a visitor but more of a host, I worked (and will work on the weekends until they close for the season) at the Deli part of the General Store. The only thing I would complain about it, is that I have to get up one hour earlier than on a regular school day, otherwise, it's a pleasant summer job. I get to interact with unique people who pass by, yet being an BIG introvert, (in my opinion) I'm not too out of my comfort zone.
What do you want to become when you grow up? There are so many choices to pick from. You can become an engineer, a basketball player, a teacher, or a professor, but just think about it. If you enjoy reading about the brain and the nervous system you might like the job I’m about to talk about. A job where you can help the people around you in a big way, a job where you can have something challenging to do every day. And that job is a neurosurgeon.
A career as a neurosurgeon is one that is long and vigorous, difficult, and money-making. A neurosurgeon is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatments of the nervous system. Every day is a new day when you're working in this career. Some days you will be operating and others you will be discussing with the patient’s family. You never know who the patient is and if you will be able to help them. Some patients will live and many will die. You need to be able to move forward and let the past be the past.
Once I graduate from La Serna High School, I will partake in a stressful journey into becoming a neurosurgeon. Neurosurgeons are physicians who perform surgeries on the brain to treat diseases or injuries. Besides surgeries, a neurosurgeon diagnose people, prescribes medicine, and also considered the surgical risks of proceeding with a surgery. This career is probably one the most stressful jobs in the world, due to all the information they must know and because of all the pressure that is on them during a surgery. The reason I am interested in this career is because, I have always been fascinated with the brain and how it works, not to mention I love helping people treat diseases or injuries.
I would also be part of helping cognitive therapy paths, better understand behavior of all ages, as well as plowing through the mystery that is the our brain. The salary is about the same depending on experience, but a Cognitive Neuroscientist would make a comfortable living. The last profession I am considering is a Neuro Surgeon. This field is exciting to think about, with the adventures of the human brain, and helping people on one of the hardest levels. This hard science would not only satisfy my want for helping others, yearning for adventure, but also filling the possibility of teaching one day. A six figure salary is also a pretty mention to say over Thanksgiving, once the degree is achieved of course. In all of these professions I would be able to work in a field that I love as well as live comfortably. Whether I teach psychology, pioneer and map the brain, or help save people’s lives, I would be happy. The question, for me, is not whether or not I can do it, but which would fulfill my dream and wants
Nikola Tesla is a man so influential yet so forgotten in history. His inventions and experiments have pushed technologies past the limits we believed we had in both electricity and wireless energy. In fact, if you look around you, most likely you’ll spot something we owe to him. For example the electricity from wall sockets run off his alternating currents (What). Or maybe you spot the lights above you, which are most likely Tesla’s fluorescent lights. Because of his work with electricity and wireless energy, Tesla has impacted the world by providing a more efficient energy source, boosting militaries, and boosting commerce, making him the most influential man in history (Cawthorne).
Last spring, I wanted an adjustment. I had been running for an extended period of time. Moreover, I just previously finished a vigorous cross country season. I desperately desired to pursue another sport. Then, one monotonous school day, on the Morning Announcements, I was astounded to hear a life changing declaration. “There will be a soccer interest meeting held in the Old Gym at AC Flora tonight.” I practically leapt out of my chair with excitement.
Nikola Tesla also used his amazing intellect in order to change the world for the better with his extraordinary inventions. One of his most well-known contraptions was the induction motor: “[Tesla’s motor could not only] convert the zig-zag impulses of an alternating current into a spinning motion in one direction, but it could run at high voltages with no danger of sparking,”("Nikola Tesla." World of Invention). Tesla’s motor was revolutionary for its time and is still in extremely common use today. Tesla’s dedication to using his astute mind in order to change the world is what made him a true hero. Not only did Tesla invent the motors that are used in devices ranging from blenders to cars, but an interviewer also witnessed him predict the
Nikola Tesla, who lived from 1856 to 1943, is often described as arrogant and hardworking but a fantastic scientist. He is known for the Tesla coil, water wheel, and wireless transmissions. He was very meticulous; some people say that he used
My top career choice is a neurologist. I have chosen this career because not only is it financially rewarding, I can help people live a better life like I always dreamed of doing as a kid. I want to be the person to be recognized for saving lives. I know that this job would be a lot of hard work, but I think all my time would be worth it saving lives. The brain has always fascinated me since I was little, I was always eager to learn more, and discover more things. I realize that this would be a challenge, but it is a challenge I am up for!
The school required a test for admission, so the competition was getting fierce. The teachers focused a lot on our academics and tried to squeeze as much time as they can from us to study. As the result, we were not allowed to play soccer during our free time because it hinders us from studying. Maybe it is human tendency to break laws, but the gang of us didnâ€™t want to conform to that rule so sneaking a soccer ball to school and keep it away from the teachers became an everyday challenge. It was amazing the kind of ideas we came up with for this task. Soccer added spices into my otherwise boring school life, and it served as a channel between me and my fellow classmates. Through soccer we found a common ground, that we were able to know each other more and support each other no matter what happens. It gave us a sense of unity, and it was very important to me. Even now I cherish the pact I had with them back then - the support that helped me to stay on the right track during my rebel teenage years.
When I look in the mirror I know whom I am, but society makes it difficult to understand who I am, because I was born to immigrants of Nigerian descent, and I am a first generation American, that term is sometimes used so loosely. By looking at my name they assume that I am from some island, but I am so quick to tell them that “I am Nigerian”, there is another statement that normally follows this. “You do not have an accent”. I wonder if I had an accent would I be considered Nigerian and not American; then I say that “My parents are Nigerian” and then that changes, so to them I am just associated with the Nigerian culture it does not make me Nigerian, there has been many discussion between my friends who are the same like me confused to
