Riding a unicycle is probably pretty interesting. I originally wanted my parents to get me a pogo stick for christmas because they never got me one when i was little, but they couldn’t find an adult sized one in their budget. So they figured something else that is equally strange would suffice, and it really seemed to fit my personality.The reason I started my essay with a reference to my unicycle is because it shows some good aspects of my character. Since riding a unicycle took multiple months for me to master, it shows that I am persistent, even if I fall a few times. Though riding a unicycle is interesting and fun, it’s not my main priority. I’m extremely passionate for film and theatre, and there are a few things about me that really do a fantastic job at getting me ready for a career in acting.
“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because your character is what you really are. While your reputation is merely what others think you are.” -John Wooden.
Former baseball player Tommy Lasorda once said, “The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person’s determination.” The journey of our life is full of winding paths and concrete obstacles whose sole goal is to slow us down, and to attempt to block us from reaching our ultimate goal in life, whatever that may be. These barriers are there for several different reasons, whether it be mental or physical. Sometimes these obstacles are motivated by fear, other times they exist simply because we have to make a decision, and that decision can be life changing. But through our determination, and through our perseverance, we can achieve what these barriers told us was impossible, and can pursue the path in our life that leads us to our ultimate self. Throughout my life, I have had thousands of barriers stand in my path. And the only way I was able to defeat them was through conquering my fears, and breaking my limits in order to achieve excellence.
It's a hard knock life. Dogs are scary. Babies are afraid that they will drown them in slobber. They already know that their chubby cheeks are cute. Grandmas need to stop pinching their cheeks. Babies need to be changed, please, it's so uncomfortable for them. They are sorry about that, but they can't help the smelly mess. I cannot describe for them how hard it is being a baby.
Throughout my life I have battled against mayor struggles. Struggles which to some may seem like it was nothing and to others it may look like it`s a horrible situation. My entire childhood I lived in my home country of Puerto Rico, and honestly had never thought about the outside world. As time passed, the more crime progressed to levels that could never be seen in America. Crime had become unbearable and unescapable, so much that stepping on someone’s shoe on accident would lead to that person shooting you or threatening to do so. I as a child could see what was happening, and I could see how my countries problems had affected me greatly. Shootings right behind my house almost every day, 9-year-old`s bringing guns and pocket knives to school, people breaking in to my school to kill students selling drugs. The biggest problem that affected me was that my father, being a kind-hearted man, risked his life to save two students who were
From a young age, I have never particularly excelled in any field. I was an average student and average at all of my so-called talents. However, my perception of myself changed in 7th grade when I joined the Debate club at my school. That one club helped me realize my potential and taught me not to underestimate myself. During my journey in that club, I learned a lot of things. Having needed to debate on various issues around the world, this club was an eyeopener to the privileged life I lived. It was that year I made a decision to make this passion of mine into a career- a human rights lawyer.It is has been 3 years since I took that decision and my passion hasn't diminished. Ever since that year, I have strived to be the best version of myself
“Volunteers are the only human beings on the face of the earth who reflect this nation's compassion, unselfish caring, patience, and just plain loving one another.”
In life as people begin to grow up and get older, lots of things around you and in your life will begin to change. People will change and you will start realizing that not everyone you know is good people to surround yourself around in life. As you get older you should become more responsible so you can grow up to be the successful human being. Life and time flies by and can be taken away from you at any given moment, always have fun and use your time wisely, and make sure you aspire to be the best person you can be.
I started working at as young of an age as I could. Everything costs money, so I had to get a job if I wanted anything. I know better than most people how much hard work can pay off. I have worked as hard as I can at anything I do for that reason.
I believe that I am a perfect recipient for this award. I am a hard working student, who strives for greatness. I am the first in my family to go to college. I am not only doing great in my academics, but I also inspire my family to pursue their dreams. There is no required age to continue your career path, and I always pass this message
but to feel a few things twice”-Unknown. I wish I knew who wrote this quote, because the person who wrote it put love, feeling, and memories in words, which is not easy to do. I was born in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas; that’s in Mexico. My family consists of five, my parents, my sister, brother, and me. Life is full of decisions, chances and it is up to us to make the right once to take the path you believe is correct. Life is going to take us places, and where ever we go, whatever we do, the environment in which we are born/ raised shapes all of us as persons
Many people just think that everything is easy and that they will know everything without even attempting it. This I believe that you have to work your way up to succeed, but everything will take time. Not everything is easy because you haven’t even try it.
All people face realities. Good realities, bad realities, and neutral realities. No matter what, you will face them. What are these realities though? The rich, the poor, and the middle class all face them.
The scary truth about life is that nothing is forever. Life is temporary, but death is permanent. No matter how hard we work to get where we want to be in life, we will all end up in the same place. Death is a very heartbreaking concept for me and I have always known that I wanted to prevent it to the best of my abilities. When I was 7 years old, I would always see commercials on TV about St. Jude’s Children’s hospital asking for financial support for children with cancer. I knew that I wasn’t able to donate any money to the hospital, but I still felt the urge to help them. One day, I had decided to call the hospital and I was directed to the charge nurse of one of the floors. I remember talking to her about her patients and I wished her and
Every kids goal is graduate from high school, go off to college, and live the luxurious life they have always dreamed of. They don't realize all of the hard work they need to put forth, and obstacles to overcome in order to fulfill those dreams. Over the last 4 years, I have set myself certain goals so I can be the first of my family to earn a high school diploma, and move on to pursue a higher education. Some of those goals included; maintaining above a 4.0 cumulative GPA, ranking #1 in my class, and becoming extremely over involved in extracurricular activities. I have accomplished all of these, setting myself well above where I expected to be. Now that I am a senior, ready to start making my own dreams reality, I have made a whole new set of goal to work for. But with these goals comes patience, and effort. Since freshman year, I have worked for my grades, and have had the ambition, and strive, to become who I am today. This wasn’t easy, nor was it a quick process. So for this, the most important lesson i’ve learned up to this point in my life is that success is not handed to you, and that it takes hard work, as well as patience, to really become all that you would like to be.
