I had a new appreciation for everything I participated in. School including! I began to pay attention and seek out answers to questions I didn’t know. When my time was up and I could play again I appreciated what I did so much more and gave it my all every time I participated. I learned a great lesson from a heartbreaking event. Never take anything for granted. Everything you do, do it with everything you got. Have a desire to learn and be the best you can be. Living everyday trying to be the best I can be has helped me appreciate every aspect of
I learned not to go with society’s norm, but redefine it for myself. It has also taught me how to look at situations from different perspectives and make the best decisions for me. I became a person who is confident, accepting, and able to balance life priorities. By being accepting, I developed relationships with a largely diverse group of people, spanning every race. This influenced me to have greater diversity in my ideas and views on
The first objective that my service learning project can relate to is objective five. This is to analyze the historically and morally necessary forces of change that brought an end to slavery and segregation, as well as second-class citizenship for women and people of color (Course Objectives, 2015). Bringing the history of slavery and segregation to the forefront may be difficult at times, but it is important to know just how far America has come. Understanding and analyzing the events that abolished segregation also allows individuals to consider racial tensions that still arise in current society.
I witnessed true comradery, I learned how to be compassionate and experienced a love I’ve never known before. I learned how to give without expectations of something in return (other than the good feeling accompanied by it), I learned to never judge a book by its cover, be grateful for what you have because some aren’t as fortunate, and most importantly be kind to everyone!
I learned that my passions and skills have a place in this world and cannot be dismissed with a puff of smoke. My need to help has contributed to my dream of researching and finding ways to treat mental illnesses, as well as joining the Peace Corps after college.
knowledge through my experience and helping less fortunate made me a better person. It changes my perception on how and why I see the world and the people around me. I become a well-rounded person, it opened my hearts to understand and taught me a better way to connect with people.
I also learned that there is more to life, especially for married people, than just going to work and coming back to bed to sleep. I suddenly found out about something that was never mentioned in our house: Sex!
I learned that I am incredibly passionate about the law. I realize I enjoyed learning the rules of both Civil and Criminal Procedure, and I like reading and analyzing cases.
I would like to be considered for admission to this Colorado Christian University because I believe that it will be a perfect fit for me. I will have the opportunity to receive a degree and strengthen myself in the Word of God. For many years, I have been interested in studying Psychology. My interest in pursuing this field stems from many factors, but the number one reason will be my love for people. I consider myself to be big hearted and a compassionate person. God has blessed me with a caring spirit. I have love for people and I desire to be a helping hand to as many people I can reach. For many years I have found myself working with foster children or taking care of those who needed caregiver assistance and I want to go further. I believe
Changing their perspective on me just because I was going through something no one should go through. Throughout the whole pain of being misjudged it brought to my attention what other perceive you as is not who you are. You do not to live your life for others but only for yourself. You can’t let peoples opinions affect your life and how you live it. It has made my change my attitude and my mind on how much I should let people get to me and how little I should truly care about how someone judges me because they don’t know me. They are living my life. They have no right to tell me how to live this crazy thing called life. Though being misjudged was painful it brought out a learning experience. It has and will always teach me to not let other people’s judgments control me and my
I learned how not to paraphrase. this will help me by not copying someone's work and getting in trouble. It will also help me if I become a news reporter. If i become a news reporter and i paraphrase I might get fired. This will help me in a lot of other things to.
“Service-learning is a teaching and learning strategy that integrates meaningful community service with instruction and reflection to enrich the learning experience, teach civic responsibility, and strengthen communities” (Learn and Serve America National Service-Learning Clearinghouse). This assignment gave students the opportunity to go outside of their comfort zone, which is typically the classroom and see what the “real world” is like. As Gandhi would say “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others” (Gandhi). I believe that this project really allowed us to appreciate what we have because many people are not as fortunate. During this service learning project I had certain expectations going into the project, but in the end, my results were not exactly as I expected.
I learned an important lesson about myself why doing this project. I learned that I need to be better at decision making and not giving into peer pressure. Choosing to go on the hike instead of staying behind and pulling weeds caused me to miss the
Greater Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church started as a mission doing the work of the Lord in 1969. We toiled tirelessly, and in 1970, we felt the call to organize into a church. A meeting was called, and the motion to organize the church and to elect Reverend Andrew Kelly as Pastor was established. Pastor Lloyd Johnson of New Third Heaven M.B. Church and Pastor J.P. Gordon of New St. Matthew M.B. Church proceeded to assist in the organization of the church.
