Beautiful young people are the whimsey of nature.Real beauty comes from learning ,growing ,and loving in the ways of life . That is the art of life. These programs leave a passion in me for the pure knowable world and these programs inflame me with a curiosity .Most people complain of fortune ,few of nature ; and the kinder they think the latter has been to them,the more they murmur at what they call the injustice of the former .The truth is ,that nature ,seldom profuse,has distributed her gifts more equally than she is generally supposed to have done.Education and situation make the great difference .Culture improves,and occasions elicit .I believe that enthusiasm will take me further than any amount of experience .Enthusiastic people can
I dreamt of walking on Commonwealth Ave. I envisioned myself entering the Morse Auditorium, books in hand, eager to learn. Ever since I had visited the eclectic city of Boston in 2006, I knew it was the right fit for me. I knew that the city itself, along with the remarkable academic resources that Boston University offers would allow me to grow socially and mentally. Until this day I ask questions on end from my comrades at the BU, impatient to learn more and more about their lives on and off campus. From all the feedback I have received I have come to one conclusion: BU is the place where I will get a rich, broad background in all my studies. BU will give me the foundation and preparation I will need to enter any field of study.
Breathing heavily, a million things run through my mind. I’m dying. I can’t feel my feet. My lungs aren’t taking in oxygen fast enough. However, the finish line and the satisfaction of knowing that I had gotten myself through three miles loom ahead. Clenching my
I am constantly writing. I write to reduce anxiety, to plan out my day, to jot down a hilarious joke (probably made by me) that I don’t want to forget later. Slowly, I am penning my own musical and I have written several short stories as well (which will be
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
Doing What You Love Over this past year of my life, I have learned an incredibly important life lesson. Life is short. It sounds cliche, but I have discovered that this truth is the most important thing that one can uncover. Life is too short to waste it spending all your
When I was younger I never thought I would be where I am today. Through life’s challenges I have come to realize that I can do anything I set my mind to. I continue to grow everyday as a person, because “I want to be better than I was the day before.” This is my mission statement for life.
To bottle the essence in this premier moment- the liquid of success and pride, the raw emotion in that moment that has propelled my character to it's actualized state of being- would have been a fantasy amongst reality. I open my tear dotted eyes as my ears resonate the echoes of confetti cannons and cheers from the arena. My muscles ache with joy, and my mind is chasing the realization that is at hand. I have just won a midwestern color guard championship. The golden haze of chaos that ensues is one that has forever imprinted on my mind, a haze that lingers in my peripheral vision, in constant search of a worthy emotion to compare to. The prime success in this moment alone- has been the sole fuel in the flame of my determination and strive for achieved ambitions.
Over the course of a person’s life, there are events that play a vital role in shaping his or her characteristic. These events could be momentarily, or take many years to happen; regardless, it is what we gain from those moments that are important. All my life, I’ve learned how
Some people find passion in reading books, some people find passion in athletics, and some people find passion in writing. I qualify in obtaining enthusiasm in all of those areas, like many other people in the world, but there was another area where I found excitement that not many people can relate to: the ACT.
What inspires me most is success. Success, because why try anything if you're not looking to succeed in it? I look forward to new challenges that I can take on and try to be successful in. Even though some challenges I may fail, with failure comes opportunity. Learning from a failure I that consider to be a success because I will be better prepared for what's
Nearly six years ago I had to make decisions regarding my future. This included decisions based on my education. It was not an easy period of my life. At the time, I had to leave my native country, the life I was used to, and, most painfully, my family. I came to the United States with my father and his wife. They were the only family members and people I knew in this country. Many things drove me to make such a life altering decision, one of them being the idea of countless opportunities for me to study whatever I dreamt about in a free country, instead of being assigned a career, which is what is done in Cuba. Even though I entered a magnificent high school in Cuba, the only one of the kind in the province, I was not happy with the future
Passion for the Better “The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively”― Bob Marley
Growing up, I was always the one expected in my family to succeed. My mom would always talk about the future; I would go to college, a privilege she couldn't obtain herself, and become a doctor to make enough money for our family. This was the career path I've always been interested in since I was a child. This helped shaped my goals in life and inspired me to work hard so I could make that ongoing dream a reality.
When I was younger, I was often discouraged because it always felt like my parents favored my sister, Megan, over me. I know many children felt this, and in the end, it was false, but to me, it was an undeniable fact. She was the smart one, the athletic one, and the compassionate one. Everything I did in attempt to step out of her shadow was unremarkable in comparison. Feeling disheartened, I opted out informing my parents about what was going on in my life—it would never be as impressive as what was going on in Megan’s. This mentality left me to figure things out on my own. I became independent and started inquiring answers to all the questions fluttering around in my head. I wondered about the world and the meaning of life, as cliché as it sounds, but I didn’t share my personal theories with
