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’m a self-motivated and intelligent female who is capable of juggling many responsibilities. Currently, I’m the Public Relations Chair for the Society of Women Engineers, a member of the Robotics Team and Quiz Bowl Team. In the past year, I completed a study-abroad in China, where I immersed myself in the Chinese language, and culture. Additionally, I worked for the College of Engineering as a camp counselor for incoming freshman. I guided them through their first college experience so they could not only ace their classes, but be sure about their path in life. I also shadowed the SWE president. This gave me opportunity to lead meetings, host events, and lead others. I learned the ropes about how to properly run
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
The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult experiences to endure in a human lifetime. The grieving process often encompasses the survivors’ entire world and affects their emotional, cognitive, spiritual, and physical selves in unexpected ways. After a major loss, such as the death of a spouse or child, up to a third of the people most directly affected will suffer detrimental effects on their physical and/or mental health (Jacobs 1993).
As an undergraduate student at the University of New Mexico I have become increasingly aware of the complex network problems that I face as a citizen of the world. I have also realized the progress and success that I enjoy in the same capacity as the frontiers of medicine, technology and communication continue to expand. My desire to participate in the resolution of those problems and in the further expansion of those frontiers had inspired me to seek a degree in biology and entrance into a School of Dentistry. I intend to successfully complete program of dentistry and further my specialization in the area of endodontics. Upon completion of my
It was a cold autumn night in North Carolina when I realized that my youth was being taken away from me. I wanted to run away and go back to the life that I had known; where I had the opportunity to go to school was happy and understood the language. Instead I was in a foreign land with my family and we could not return for there was no future in my homeland. According to my father, we had to keep migrating because it was the best thing for our family. It was then when I realized that this is not what I wanted for my family and I asked my father that we needed to go somewhere where I can go to school because it was affecting everybody including my little brother. My father raised me to believe I could accomplish anything I set my mind to
Lee University’ mission in scholastic curriculums is, “to develop within the students’ knowledge, appreciation, understanding, ability, and skills which will prepare them for responsible Christian living in a complex world.” In implementation, the practice of ethical action, redemptive service and responsible citizenship within the church, local community, and globally, are emphasized. As an older student at Lee University, I admit that these values were heavily communicated to me, by my mother, from an early age. After high school, I did not pursue a vocation and worked in a factory in Alabama for a couple of years. It was during this time, that I realized, that God wanted more out of and for me. I returned home to Tennessee, and by
I have spent the last two years addressing a personal goal: addressing the social and vocational disparity in women entering STEM fields. After spending years being one of few in my higher level math classes, it became apparent that many girls dropped out of advanced math classes around the time of middle school. As the Founder and Director of SHINE For Girls DC, a nonprofit after-school program, I have been able to address this personal goal in life in closing this gender gap in STEM fields. SHINE reaches out to girls in middle school - the age when girls begin to lose interest or confidence in their math - by offering a curriculum-based program that combines dance and kinesthetic learning to introduce complex math concepts. This program is unique because it focuses on reaching out to the large majority of middle school age girls who may not believe that they have a future in STEM fields. SHINE uniquely approaches learning through kinesthetic movement to breach the mental barriers a young woman may have to learn math by presenting abstract math concepts with dance in a fun learning environment. By representing the mission of SHINE of turning the “I can’t” into the “I can” for girls in one powerful moment, I have learned the
I, Moin Ahmed and my spouse Ismat Ara, continuing our married life since August 22, 2014. I have been working in a prestigious university, as a Lecture since April 8, 2012, and getting a lump sum salary. My organization already provided me No Objection Certificate which is attached with this application and there it is mentioned that, my institution will have no objection if I go abroad to reunite with my spouse, and I will get leave of absence and will be able to join in the same organization after coming back in my country. This NOC is giving me the opportunity to apply for this visa and accompany my wife in her hard times when she is struggling to cope up with a new culture and new environment.
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.
Since an early age my passion has always been to help others. In every aspect of my educational career and in my jobs, I have always determined that helping someone is the goal. Helping people is a goal that can be achieved in any work field regardless of what one does. For the last five years, I have volunteered for a non-profit organization named “Hogar de Ninos: Semillas de Fe” (translates to “A Home for Children: Seeds of Faith”). In this organization, a group of young adults have traveled to the Dominican Republic once a year for a period of two weeks each trip. Our goal is to help the impoverished children. These children have been exposed to countless traumatic events including being physically, emotionally, and sexually abused. The organizations mission consists of helping develop these children
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
Over the past summer, as well as the past 5 summers, I have worked at a place called Camp Vineyard. It is a fantastic summer camp run out of the Vineyard Chattanooga church where they bring in kids from over 20 different churches across the southeast and give them a place where they can experience God in a traditional overnight summer camp way. From the many fun activities such as the ridiculous games such as giant multi-ball soccer to the neat groups, which allow kids to build rockets and shoot them into the air and archery, there is never a dull moment throughout the day. In both the mornings and the evenings we have sessions where kids learn from a couple different speakers and have a time of worship. Finally, one night every week we also have a ministry where in the past kids have learned how to pray for others, sought both physical and spiritual healing, and have been spoken to by the other kids around them. It truly is quite an experience to see over 400 kids from 6th grade to 12th grade praying for each other and speaking into their lives who some have been changed forever because of this.
