Past experiences influenced my decision to pursue art history, both academically and professionally. My undergraduate studies in Art History and Visual Arts first
Growing up in a family of two siblings and a single father, I learned to make my life less challenging by working hard with discipline. People always say life is unfair, but I don’t have an excused to stop trying harder to have a better life. Since I was little, I have been struggled to find my dream because my little silly dream to have a dinner with my parents seem impossible. When I was three, my parents fought and end up with a divorce. I got raised by my grandmother and my father when my mother left without a word. Getting raise from a poor family, I always build up the hope for a better life and better future. Suffering lonely, starving moment, I grew up bolder and stronger. I become more responsible and more passionate to have a better
I am currently enrolled in three AP courses and made the Distinguished Honor Roll for the first marking period of the 2016-2017 school year. Because I’ve been able to learn from my mistakes I will enhance the values of Towson University through making more personal growth, allowing me to help those around me by being proof that you should never give up on yourself. Although I spent the past months questioning whether I should even bother applying to college because of my below average GPA, I know that have grown and changed. I know what I am now capable of accomplishing. Knowing that it was never too late to change my future has made me the person I am
Fear and anxiety plagued my mind during this transition, however my wife and daughter kept my mind at ease. The information and instruction that was provided from the Professors at Durham Tech galvanized something deep within me. I began to strive for goals that I thought were unattainable as a naïve adolescent. Instructors encouraged me to work hard and to be persistent when it came to the immense obstacles of my course work such as giving a presentation at an honors symposium as an honors student. After countless years of self doubt and negative feelings towards education as a whole, for the first time in my life, I felt like college was an option for
Throughout highschool I have grown as a person. Three words I would use to describe myself as would be friendly, caring, and positive. My mom has always taught me to include everyone in everything. This is the main reason why I am so friendly. Whenever I see someone sitting alone at lunch, or even walking to class alone, I am the type of person to go up to them and talk to them to make sure they know they are always welcomed to join me. Two things I try to accomplish everyday are telling everyone good morning and giving everyone at least one complement. I love doing this because you never know when someone can be having a bad day and the one compliment you give them can change their whole day around. I would also say
As a recent graduate of Iowa State University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Art and Design focusing on art history and education, the position as Education Coordinator and Advisor at Buena Vista University captured my attention as an opportunity to work with students through educational programming. As a recent college student, I provide a valuable perspective on academic advising through my own personal experiences. I have learned many advisors lack in truly connecting and catering to each student’s individual situation and needs. Buena Vista University, a relatively small area college, provides an opportunity to fully connect and provide personal one-on-one experience all students deserve. Subsequently, students gain the absolute most out of their college education. A large part of my career goals entail helping students of all ages engage, thrive and connect in their own individualized way.
Twenty-six years ago. I began the quest to find the perfect college. As I drove down the driveway of Bay Path College, I knew this was the college I was going to attend. I was drawn to the rural setting, the beautiful campus and the small academic community. My intent for life after high school was to get my associates degree, earn some money, then begin working toward my bachelor degree. In retrospect, I did not possess the confidence or drive needed to be a good student. I struggled for the next couple of years to earn my Associates degree, however was apprehensive to commit to the time or expense it would take to continue my education. After a very long break in schooling, I now approach education with a new mindset and ready to commit
“Returning to school after so many years of not attending, to obtain a degree can be a struggle for many people throughout their life, but it also has its benefits, changes, challenges, and goals. Initially, I had planned to go to college right after high school, but due to many family problems I was unable to. It would be another eight years before I would make the decision to enroll in school. My reasons for returning to school are to higher my education, have a better career/ job, and to better my life, as well as the life of my daughter. Returning to school for me, has had its benefits, changes, challenges, and goals. In this paper, I plan to give you a brief
My transfer process from the dreary and jaded feeling halls of my High-School to Isothermal Community College was drastic. Rutherford - Spindale Central High made me feel trapped and like none of my choices mattered in the slightest bit. When I finally graduated I knew my life would change and it has quite a bit. I make my own decisions and I am responsible for important things, such as my education and grades. I am thankful for the freedom that my college life gives me as well as the responsibility.
At this point in my high school career, I am considering going into computer engineering, which will require some form of post-secondary education. Winning this scholarship would be a substantial step forward in paying for the classes required to obtain a degree in that field.
Througout my academic career, I have learned as much about myself as I have learned in school, whether it be from high school, to community college, and my journey that lead me to Arizona State University. I can honestly say as my parents did, that I wish I would’ve tried harder in high school. I scraped by taking the easiest classes possible and choosing to take the easy way out. Looking at my transcript makes me cringe, because I know that I am capable of so much more. I wish that I would’ve taken the honor classes and tried so that I would’ve been able to apply to a college other than a community college. My time at Mohave Community College was a significant improvement from my experience in high school. Not only did I graduate with near honors (3.49), I had made the Dean’s list and Honors List for three out of my four semesters, the first time this had happened since middle school. I had never felt more motivated and focused in my life. I was taking 16 credits and prospering and had a balance of work, school, and a social life. I had never felt more proud of my self in my life. As I sit here and write this paper, I question my time here at ASU as I try to plan the nex chapter of my life. I wonder where I am supposed to go and what I am supposed to do.School for the first time had become a priority, however, it began to consume my life. I would spend hours and hours on end doing homework and studying, and although there seems to be nothing wrong with this, I wouldn’t go
During my career at SUNY Orange, I have grown by leaps and bounds. I have mastered my short comings, earned a 3.5 GPA, made the Dean’s list three semesters and running, earned the Peter Albergani Inspirational Scholarship, and I was selected to attend the Exploring Transfer Program at Vassar College. SUNY Orange has opened many doors for me, doors I did not even know existed. I was not sure that I wanted to attempt to get my Bachelor’s degree, seeing as just getting my Associates degree was more than I ever imagined I would accomplish. That all changed when I was given the opportunity to experience what it would be like to attempt learning at a four year institution.
I have lived in West Liberty all my life, with my parents Corie and Ronda Peterson and my younger sister Morgan. I love golfing especially with my friends and family as well as spending time outdoors in the summer. My mother is my biggest inspiration because while she was fighting cancer she not only stayed strong for my sister and I but also she has taught me to be strong and to believe in who I am and who I will become. I am extremely excited to be furthering my education at Mount Mercy University to become a neonatal nurse, this scholarship will help me with my financial insecurities making me more confident to pursue my dreams.
Going to college has been a dream of mine growing up. I am the first ever in my family to go to college but figuring out how to pay for it has been a challenge. I desire to achieve my academic and career goals and this scholarship can help me succeed in my journey.
My want to pursue fine arts as my area of study stemmed from my want to obtain my Bachelors in Fine Arts and help procure a future career in the art museum industry. I want to go beyond what I know to develop an array of skills that will make me an asset in the art world, developing practical and theoretical skills to learn art and design history. Being passionate, innovative, and creative in every aspect of my life I believe acted as my backbone that supported me in venturing into new things. The passionate, innovative, and creative attend The New School which is why I believe my presence as a student would be a perfect fit. Students attend higher education to become enlightened about the majors that will essentially help them become successful in their life. I believe that The New School would be an essential component educating me about fine art as well as expanding my knowledge on topics such as painting, drawing,and
