The more I observe, the more I understand who I am. I come from a small town in a very cold part of the world, where very few exciting events occur. This means, I have to work extra hard to become an artist. I remember having my neighbor say, “You aren’t an artist until I buy a painting from you,” and she did. I never wanted the money, but I did enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that what I create makes others happy. So many people in town encourage me and support me with my dreams, and all I do in return is help them back in return. When people need a little sunshine on gray, winter days, I am there to lend them my happiness. That is why I am able to succeed. When failure strikes his wrath upon me, I learn from the mistakes rather be held back –being optimistic allows me to grow much quicker than if I were to be
I’ve always wanted to touch the sky since I was a little boy. When I turned 8 my father took me to the Oshkosh Airshow in Oshkosh, Wisconsin there I met a gentleman named John Alison. John was a very special man to me because he inspired me to pursue my dream to do exactly that. Touch the sky. I would be a good fit for the University of Kansas Aviation program because I have completed the first requirements for aviation school, I am transferring with an associate in applied science and I have the ambition to complete my Bachelors in Technology Management Degree.

It takes a lot of courage to stand up for one’s own belief and thought, how abnormal it may be. But, when someone reaches to that point, they are truly genius. Most people are ashamed of their identity because it is different from others. They should learn to “Accept the place the divine Providence” has found for them (Emerson, Self-Reliance, 233). They don’t understand that their different identity makes them extraordinary in a special way. All the people who have achieved great milestones have been different. But again, what made them different made them great. “To be great is to be misunderstood”(Emerson, Self-Reliance, 235). All the great people achieved great things because they were brave enough to be different. They defied the normal. Consequently, their lives were more pleasurable. They knew what they were doing and what will they do next, and they didn’t need anyone’s acceptance except their own. If people speak their minds, accept who they are, ignore society’s norms and lastly, be original; their lives can be a joyous journey.
Growing up I've always been interested in Astronomy I remembered having a one on one conversation with my middle school science teacher explaining to me that he see a young astronomer in his eyes . When he taught the class my hands were always raised with the answers to the question given. It was pretty obvious my goal was to become an astronomer at a younger age.
At a certain point in people’s lives, time seems to stop and they become stagnant, almost as if they can’t progress any further. It’s at this point that they are given a choice to move forward, and at a young age I was also given that choice. When I was in elementary school, I was told by many people trying wouldn’t get me anywhere because I was naturally bad at many things. I was told that I had no talent and even if I did get better I couldn’t be compared to my peers. This idea didn’t seem right to me and I immediately questioned it, however for a long time I let their words get to me. I remained one of the slowest runners in my grade, I had some of the worst grades, and I thought it was just how the world worked. Although, I let their words affect me, I didn’t really believe them.
Constantly learning and growing in our lifetime, allows us to gain an understanding of the world around us. Analyzing, admiring and reaching for what the world has to offer, we are able to
We as a species are very connected, very social. We require other people to function and to grow. The reason that I keep going, the reason that I am inspired to be my best self each day is because of these people, because of the people who have decided to have me in their lives. I put work and time into being a good friend, someone who others enjoy being with. I put hours of practice into my viola so that my quartet can reach greatness. I am a part of other people's lives, and it is that responsibility to them that gives me my inspiration.
Let us think back to when we were young boys and girls. We get reminded of the desire to grow up and become someone important. Growing up we always had that special person who was always there for us, supporting us in everything we did. Little girls had big dreams of being super stars and being on television for everyone to see us. Little boys also had dreams of becoming doctors or engineers. Many people dream of doing something important for the rest of their life, but unfortunately not many are able to achieve their goal. There is always exceptions to this, and there was one person who achieved her goal, not caring what people said.
"I would like to die on Mars. Just not on impact."- Elon Musk. Space exploration is tough. The slightest problem can turn what seemed a successful mission into a disaster, making it imperative to prepare for every possible situation. As such, there is a great demand for high quality engineers in this field. I plan to be one of those engineers, and Washington Aerospace Scholars is one of the best opportunities to help me accomplish this. There is a lot I can gain from it; however, it does not come without difficulty. WAS requires dedication, strategy, and commitment to succeed. I believe I can offer these through my diligence towards STEM, time proven work ethic, and experience in similar courses.
The question why is stated and presented in the many ways that we approach life. Albert Wolters has given an explanation that whatever way we go or see in the world there is an explanation of why we are able to go or choose that route. Through the book Creation Regained and the lecturer that was given by Mark Charles both collaborate and give an insight of what direction we have took based on the decision that our forefathers have chosen for our nation. The direction and the structure that we want is embellished into the idea that we can only become a better person by correcting the mistakes that were made in the past.
My early education shaped my motivations and philosophy in both negative and positive ways. At a young age, I became motivated to read and learn as much as possible. I regularly outperformed all of my peers in school and became focused on showing everyone that I was superior to them. Consequently, I continued to perform better and became convinced that I was smarter than my classmates and friends. Despite being given chances to excel in elementary school; in fifth, sixth, and seventh grade I was not sufficiently challenged and was disappointed that my time in school felt wasted. This was particularly frustrating because I had contemplated skipping sixth grade, but was discouraged to do so. Halfway through seventh grade I had the opportunity to challenge myself again. This time it did not influence my motivation or work habits; instead, I learned self-humility and had my personal philosophy reshaped.
Have you ever had an original thought? Why do we dress the way we do, watch what we watch or even live the way we do. Through our means of entertainment, it is almost a guide in how one should live their life. With the technology we have in our world we are persuaded to believe what is right and what is wrong. Although we create our own world, our thoughts were imposed upon us since the day we are born. “What if the world is some kind of show. What if we are only talents assembled by the Great Talent Scout Up Above! The Great Show of Life! Starring Everybody! Suppose entertainment is the Purpose of Life,” says Gabler. We wake up in the morning where most of us have a daily routine we go through. Why do we put on
