My plan for a post-high school education is to attend the University of South Dakota. While attending, I will be engaged on attaining my Bachelor of Science in Health Sciences with a pathway to Occupational Therapy. During my sophomore or junior year of my undergraduate studies I will apply for acceptance into the Occupational Therapy program. Once I am accepted I plan on attending the University of South Dakota for another three years to complete my graduate studies.
I thought Senior year would never come. Well it came and arrived sooner than I though. I've been planning life after high school for a while now but, this year makes everything seem surreal. I thought I had everything planned out, ready to go, and this year would be a piece a cake. I've never been more wrong. The stress of senior year and accomplishing what I need to to graduate so i can further my education in college is weighing me down. Sometimes I need to take a step back, take a deep breath, and just calm down. I know with everything in me I am cabe of whatever I set my mind to as long as I don't let minor obstacles hold me back.
One of my many goals in life, since I was younger, was to major in a profession where I can change the world and make it a better place. I want to help people and positively impact their lives. This is when I decided to major in occupational therapy and focus the profession towards youth. Hopefully, I will be able to
“What do you want to be when you graduate high school?,” my mother asked me. She has asked me this specific question my entire life but today she wanted an answer. I was seventeen, only a month away until my eighteenth birthday, so it was time for me to make a decision. I told her I did not know and she started to list a bunch of career options I could pursue. She continue to go on and on then, she said Occupational Therapist. My mom described to me what Occupational Therapist did and their job responsibilities. That is when I decided that this is the career for me. I am driven to become an Occupational Therapist because I want to provide for my future family, and to grow spiritually and mentally in the process.
I hope to become an occupational therapist after I finish college. I always knew that I wanted to do something with people that involved helping them. I hope to provide support for those who believe that the things they used to do are now impossible. I want to be the person who helps them see that those things are possible, and they just need some help getting there. I also want to be the type of therapist who lets their patients know that whenever they need help I will be there to assist them. People feel hopeless if they are not able to do the things they always could, but I want to take that feeling and make it blossom into the wonderful feeling that hope can bring. People deserve to be happy in their bodies, and they should not feel ashamed
Senior citizens are the people who are most likely to take multiple medications due to the occurring chronic conditions as the aging process continues. Given the several medicines they take, they are ironically the age group that is very much sensitive to medication side effects, both therapeutic and negative.
Senior year turned out to be one of the hardest years of my life. I found myself working extremely hard to do well in my classes and maintain good grades. Granted, this should be done all throughout a person’s academic career, but senior year was one of the most defining years of all. As a high school senior, I found myself making decisions that most definitely affected and impacted my future. I pushed myself to always do my absolute best and excel in each and every one of my classes, while I involved myself in a part of the business world through my part-time job, and engaged in community service, all while maintaining an excellent GPA. Being considered to receive a scholarship for my schooling would be a great opportunity in assisting me in achieving my future educational and life-long goals.
Your senior year was a wild, crazy mess. You started off the year not wanting to go to school to see Karson because you couldn’t handle it. You even left school some days when he would show up. You let your dumb self try again with Karson and it failed. You got hurt, and even cried.... A lot. You meet the love of your life, Kyle, and still talk to him even though you guys aren’t together right now. You both hope to reconnect after you finish your second year of college. Keep talking to him, don’t let him get away from you. You have had it tough this year, but by the end of the year you didn’t let anything affect you. Your grades were A’s and B’s all year. You made some amazing new friends like, Chandler, Clayton Ecker, Collin and more boys
As my senior year comes around, it has become more real to me that I have to take charge of my future. I deserve and need this scholarship just as I need oxygen to breathe. Being the first in my family to attend college or even have the idea in their head means I’m on my own to discover what to do to get into college and how to come up with the means. I
The Senior Show is a relatively new concept at Pinecrest High School, where the seniors, and only seniors, who are part of the theater department produce, direct, cast, and star in a single play completely by themselves. This year the seniors chose to work on a play called Almost, Maine, by John Cariani. The show was performed on May 12, beginning at 7:00 pm.
I am planning to graduate with my bachelors in Therapeutic Recreation. I will then take that degree to enter the Occupational Therapy Assistant Program. I have chosen this occupation because it makes me happy to assist the people who want to get back in the routine in life. My patients age from 3 years old all the way to 100. I love being active, and it requires plenty of energy. My patients may have delayed development or may have traumatic brain damage. Patience is an important skill to have. I will have to get my hands dirty sometimes, but not all jobs are clean. My mother is a special education teacher in a PIP class. It is truly rewarding to me to help her kids with eating breakfast, and to simple as assisting with writing their name.
Occupational therapy combines my two loves the medical field and working with special needs children. While being employed in the school system as an occupational therapist, I will be interacting and working with many different people on a daily basis. We will all be considered part of the support staff and will work together to help the children achieve their goals. I will also be keeping the parents updated on a weekly basis of their child’s progress, along with attending each child’s IEP (individual education plan) conference. Becoming an occupational therapist is a very long and hard journey. During the process I will be taking many difficult classes, learning about numerous disabilities, taking lots of tests, learning how to use adaptive
Being a senior is very hard and a lot of pressure is getting pushed on to you. I have set many goals this year and I plan to achieve them all I am willing to face my hardest fears and accomplish it. I grew up in Mineola, Texas and been living with both of my parents for the past 18 years and I am blessed that my parents have supported me throughout out most of our hardest times together. Life isn't easy it's a whole change and everyone doesn't have the same obstacles that other have to face but it's reality. My parents always told me and still today they have inspired me never to give up my parents want me to go to college because they want a better future for me and just a better everything overall they don't want me to have a hard life like them and I respect that. Ever since then my life completely changed I had my ups and downs but that showed me to become a stronger person I have established myself that I want to be an
The government affects my life in countless aspects because it is ridiculously inconsistent in deciding what teenagers can and cannot do. In particular, the government is hugely inconsistent when determining when I can be an adult. The government decides that I can't buy alcohol until I'm 21, but at the same time I can put my life on the line in the military when I'm 18. If I can give my life for the government, I should be able to enter a bar. You ARE an adult when you're 18. There should not be any concessions when convenient to the government's interests. When I become an adult, I should attain all of the rights entitled to being an adult. The government decides what I learn and when I go to school with common core. This is unacceptable
Personally i’m young and just started to be introduced into the adult world, honestly i’m horrified that i won’t be able to make it. All the crimes that have been happening in my hometown makes me feel like i won’t be able to make it into the actual adult world. Anything can happen in a matter of seconds. I miss being able to go outside and playing, hanging out with friends or just taking a walk down the street, but now that seems impossible people are losing their lives so quickly. Now it’s a blessing if you’re a black man and you made it past your 30th birthday. I feel sorry for the boys who started out gang banging young and what they had to do to get there.
