There are many things I enjoyed through this program. Many people think of freshmen and they automatically are pictured as these annoying little babies who just get in our ways when walking to class. As a Link Crew leader, I’ve learned that this isn’t the case. Some of them are fairly mature and we can identify with them on some levels, I’ve enjoyed getting to know a select few of them. I’m also happy that I got to be part of such an enthusiastic group of people. The energy within a room full of
The first experience most high schoolers have with the program is during sophomore year at spring RYLA. It’s a nice introduction, you meet kids from all reaches of Long Island.
The program is both social and academic. I was too ambitious to productive during my last summer of high school. Thus, despite being financially struggle, I tried my best to use my savings to attend the program, with the help of tuition scholarships. In here, I built great connections with faculties and friends, whom I still stay in contact and who are helping me with my academic endeavor. Being an on child who was raised protectively in home and never allow to go on field trip, I thought this was a unique program that allows me to gain independence being far away from home and support myself. The program taught me how to get along with roommates and how to be friends with different people before my real college life started. In the beginning, I shed blood and tears, missing my parents so much. However, I knew that the most difficult obstacle to overcome is overcoming myself. New Start gave a new effect on my work ethic because of the experience I had with college students’ team work and with the conference that I presented. The transition to college became easier a few months
Lastly, Sally did an excellent jJob at communicating with her patients. She could explain the procedure in technical terms but also make it understandable to the patient. She was very good at explaining the procedure to them without belittling them. I am very good at understanding procedures on a technical level but then simplifying them to make them more understandable both to others and myself.
To me this program thought me many lesson above and beyond, challenges my knowledge skills, and developed my thinking globally. My experience in the program will be a life learn lesson because I never gave up no matter how tough it was sometimes. Because I always remember life is a journey that I walk through every day. Not so many people get such

The Excellent Speaker Series is an organized advantageous activity for students currently taking a public speaking class. This series is handled by the college's speech professor, Carolynn Schmies. This activity gives these students the opportunity to see how an excellent speaker performs. The speech professor, Carolynn Schmies, invites past students to perform their speeches in front of her classes. Chosen students exhibit great speaking abilities, interesting topics, as well as excellent leadership abilities. I was chosen among her students and have spoken to her classes various times. Furthermore, as a favor to her students and herself, I would stay after class to offer advice to the students. Overall, I am incredibly honored to have
Thank you for the invite and allowing me to meet the team. Great people. What you have done is impressive, and what you are outlining to do is inspiring. I truly appreciated the environment of SharkNinja that emanated from yourself, Brian, Neil and Mark: the desire to achieve, to always keep moving/thinking differently, to learn and challenge yourself and each other. This espirit de corp was evident in every conversation in their own unique way.
I got involved with this program because when I was in high school I knew I wanted to pursue a higher education but had no idea how to make that possible because I didn’t know where to begin. Thankfully I found a teacher who would set time aside from her lunch to walk me through the steps on how my applications needed to be submitted and what I needed to include in my essays. I know that there are student like me who are shy and don’t know where to obtain the help that they need in order to successfully submit their application. I decided to get involved with this program because I want to be the mentor that that teacher was
