There are many obstacles that you are faced in life. One of my biggest fences in my life is being short. I am not that tall and it effects me in all the sports that I am in. Being short may not seem like a major issue, but it can create many challenges in my life. This is not something that I can change about myself therefore it is hard to overcome. This affects me the most in the sports that I play.
In ten years from now I can see myself as a certified Physicians Assistant in the specialty of Urgent Care in a hospital here in San Antonio, Texas. I will do this by a series of multiple steps, graduating high school of course being my first step. After
The obstacles that I went through was having to not think about my dad’s death and also when my mom got sick and she had to have 4 surgeries because she had arthritis.I was only 5 years old when my dad died he was out and saw his friend getting beat up and went to go get the guy off his friend and the other guy had a machete and stabbed my dad with it. That night my mom got a call from the police saying that my dad has been killed. I know I was young, but it was hard trying to get over the fact that I don’t have a dad anymore because of some guy who thought it was right to kill him. It was tough on my family we couldn’t get over it he died on my sister’s birthday that midnight. I tried a lot of things to forget about my dad’s death, but it just couldn’t help me. When i started getting older and older I just told myself that he is in a better place and that he is watching over us and not to
As I got turned onto my back, fighting for my life, the referee’s hand slaps the mat, and my career of wrestling was over. Throughout all the times I worked out and practiced as hard as I could, my only desire for wrestling was to go to states. Knowing I had the potential, my wrestling coach used life lessons to motivate me throughout the obstacles I faced. Although I never went to states, the lessons I’ve learned from the sport apply to any desire I have in life today. Furthermore, I’ve learned that “some desire is necessary to keep life in motion” to accomplish the goals I have in life.
In 5 years from now, I see myself graduating with my bachelor’s degree in Healthcare administration. I also see myself working on my Master’s degree in something else in the healthcare field and then moving onto my PhD. I see myself running my own facility, more than likely it will be a nursing
Luisa Guzman Gomez East Bakersfield High School University of California Personal Statements Describe the most significant challenge you have faced and the steps you have taken to overcome this challenge. How did this challenge affected your academic achievements?
My interest in Health Sciences started in 2013, my freshman year at Health Sciences High and Middle College (HSHMC). Prior to high school, I wasn’t sure what my passion is life was and every time someone would ask “What do you want to do when you grow up?” it was followed with a bow of the head and a shoulder shrug. As I moved into high school, I was offered an internship at SHARP Memorial Hospital and I decided that if I wanted to go into healthcare I would only know if I tried. My second internship at SHARP Mary Birch really started my love for health care and was the spark of a future career that I would make me smile when answering the aforementioned question. Health Occupations Students of America: Future Health Professionals has helped me work toward my goal in more ways than one.
My life isn’t that appealing, I always imagined myself in better position that I am now, maybe living out of state somewhere with a boyfriend who loves me and a job that could sustain my college tuition. If you would have asked me at the age of eight what I wanted to be when I grew up, I would have said something on the line of “a Lawyer, Doctor, or even an Astronaut” but no one ever tells you how hard its going to be and how much debt you’ll be in at the age of twenty-five. From childhood to adulthood, everyone chooses a path, where they must overcome obstacles thrown at them. Obstacles in life make us who where are, they make us learn, and they predict how we will turn out. My obstacles consist of mental, physical, and social throughout my childhood, adolescence, and adulthood years which made me who I am today.
Facing obstacles, it is an everyday challenge for some people. Mine was a baseball to my face, during my sophomore year of high school. It happened during class at the end of the day. Some kids were practicing for baseball tryouts outside the gym, which is where I had my class. The ball caught on with the wind causing it to change course, making the ball fly straight into my face, specifically my left eye. Two months later I was diagnosed legally blind. I was thrown so far off track that I lost myself.
During the course of our lives, we will all be faced with obstacles. Some may be small, such as losing your car keys. Others may be large, like losing your job. However, if you approach all obstacles with an ambitious attitude, and resilience, as opposed to just whining, moping, and becoming depressed about it, they can be much more easily overcame (Harrington, 2012).
At the age of 17 years old, it is the obstacles in my life that defines who I am and who I strive to be in the next chapter of my life. In order to understand who I am and where I want to be it is important to reflect on my early experiences. I am Asian but I am definitely not the “model minority” that the news and research make us out to be. My mother gave birth to me as a teen mother. Unmarried, both my teen parents dealt with their own struggles while raising my siblings and I. Addiction was very familiar. Early in my childhood, I can recall memories of my siblings and I living with extended family members because of my parents’ inability to provide stable housing. I have witnessed my uncles on both sides of my parents’ family being affiliated with gangs, drugs and violence, and
I have endured many obstacles in my life and these obstacles could not have come at the worst time, during college. The biggest heartbreak being my brother’s death and my second heartbreak being my mother’s unexpected heart surgery. My mother had open heart surgery just a month before the passing of my brother. She seemed fine at first then out of the blue she’s passed out and being rushed to the emergency room. At this moment I am very nervous and scared of the outcome of my mother. She is literally my heart and if anything ever happened to her I know for a fact I could not handle it. She is the BIGGEST supporter over my life. She always pushes me to stay on top of school and always encourages me to finish. She motivates me to accomplish anything I want in life and to always finish what I start. My mom and I are best friends and the moment she went into the hospital I lost a piece of myself.
As a teenage there are not many obstacles that have faced, but there are a few. One obstacles that I have overcame in my life was the death of my aunt. During my junior year in october one of my aunt's passed away during her mother's birthday dinner. One minute we were eating and then the next we were at the hospital. It was so unexpected to say the least. This was the first death in our family in 18 years and none of us new how to cope with this sudden loss. I had never felt this grief or loss for someone ever in my life. I had to learn how to grieve and continue on. A similar thing happened when my uncle died last year. I had to be able to grieve and move on because I had so much to do with my everyday life and school.
In life, there are many obstacles that get in your way. Some obstacles can be overcome. Some are harder to overcome. This is the story of a woman I know who had three obstacles of her own: pancreatitis, cancer and a stroke.
Life is hard, but not impossible. I believe everyone has to go through the worst to be able to overcome its best. I’ve faced many obstacles in life from leaving my mother behind in the Dominican Republic to having to work at a young age in able to provide for myself.
