Whenever the term legacy is invoked in conversation it elicits many different responses. What is it that makes a person have a legacy that will endure long after he or she has breathed their last breath? In my judgement there are several factors that enable a person to have a long lasting impact on others. There are several key attributes that I feel contribute in the greatest manner of developing a person into who they are and into the professional and the leader they were destined to become. As I take an in-depth view of myself and evaluate the abilities that I possess, there are areas I must identify to improve upon whether strengths or weaknesses. The strengths are my endurance, compassion, and leadership,
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
On May 27, 2011, I sat in the crowd of thousands of people waiting to see the cheer from the football field. No, this wasn’t a professional football game, or even a college game. This was the graduation and commissioning of 1000 men and women from the United States Naval Academy. As the covers of all the former midshipmen went into the air, and the crowd went wild, I stood in awe, speechless. Even as an 11 year old boy, I knew that I wanted to be that young man standing on the ten yard line, in an immaculate white uniform, jumping up and down and hugging his buddy next to him. As I read stories and biographies of men like Marcus Luttrell and Chris Kyle, some of the most courageous men in the world, I realized my calling in life. I was to be an officer in the United States Navy.
I have no other option, but to write this humble request. I am going through challenging times, and respectfully ask for help. The reason behind this charitable request is the growing cost of healthcare expenses which includes a needed hernia surgery and owed dental bills.
I am not a professional writer, but I am a writer with sufficient imagination and positive attitudes. Through last two-semester-writing training, I understand the basic requirements of academic writing, such as the format, the citation and so forth. However, there is still an extensive space for me to improve my skills in both reading and writing. As a reader, I enjoy appreciating masterpieces and I am good at thinking through reading, but sometimes either cultural shock or linguistic barriers limit my reading speed and reduce my interests.
Growing up as the son of a rural Iowa veterinarian, I got my first experience in a medical field while riding along with my dad on calls, and from an early age my interest was piqued. It was the first of multiple experiences that pointed me toward a career in physical therapy.

Background. My application paper addresses a relationship that I have with a colleague of mine who I met in the Fall of 2013. My colleague's name has been changed for privacy purposes.

Stephen was a handsome guy, he spent a good amount of his time to maintain his physique and professional appearance.
“Some people called it ‘the root of insanity’, by others is known as ‘a spark of holiness’, and sometimes, it’s hard to tell the difference... But if you find something that you truly love, dedicate it all you’ve got; and leave the rest alone.” Roman Gerry- Kites.
I had experienced a lot of brokenness in my life until hitting a low point when I was 25 years old at which time I met Christ. This brokenness resulted from childhood and early life problems and from my own choices. I had encountered God at the age of 14, in a personal moment of crisis. During this difficult situation the Holy Spirit spoke to me, assuring me of the ability to overcome the situation, that God would not give me more than I could bear. I did not know it was the Spirit at the time, but I somehow knew that what I heard was true and that it encouraged and strengthened me to make a difficult choice in that moment. However, I did not become a Christian until 11 years later. As more evidence to me of God’s love, guidance, and power, I heard this same message after all those years and the Spirit used it to lead me to Christ. One day at work my supervisor, a female Pentecostal evangelist, was ministering to a co-worker, where she explained to her how God loved her, had looked out for her in all
My personal statement will talk about how I will be the first sibling to attend college and how I love being in the kitchen. I love trying making new desserts and new dishes. If my mom and family love them, then they would put it on the menu of our restaurant. The restaurant name is called Limon. My grandmother had a restaurant as well and she taught my mother how to cook. Now my mom teaches me how to cook, I enjoy how my mother passes down my grandmother's dishes. I think my grandma would appreciate that my mom is doing that. I think later on in life I would want a restaurant of my own. I have so many wishes in life, but in order to make that happen, I would have to be successful in life and continue going to school.
From a young age, I have worked with my dad restoring cars. I took a great interest in the electrical, mechanical, and body work he was doing. He is a do-it-yourself kind of guy and I helped him work on renovating bedrooms, bathrooms, and hallways in the house. I really enjoyed the hands on work that I was helping him with. When I got to high school, I learned about an aerospace engineering class that sounded like something I would really like. I took an intro to engineering class so I could take the aerospace class. Through the intro class, I learned of all the different types of engineering and I no longer wanted to take just the aerospace class, but any engineering course I could. The next year I took a computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) class
What I learned is you can set a goal and tell yourself it’s easy but in reality it’s not. It’s expensive you would have to work really hard in life. I learned you would have to get things you need first not what you want. Well you can get what you want but until your settle down and have money left over. Then you can get things you
When looking through my self-assessment which analyzed my strengths, abilities, skills and areas of improvement it made me wonder if all leaders have similar strengths and areas of improvement. For the project I thought I would look at someone who I considered a polar opposite to myself and begin to explore this notion of similarities and dissimilarities. The leader I chose was the infamous Jack Welch. This paper will explore my-self assessment, how that compares and contrasts with Jack. This paper will also take a closer look at Jack 's skills and abilities and just how they affected his roles and functions throughout his career.
