Children are the future of the world. I feel as though it is important to invest in their academic, psychological, and physical development. School counseling is a potential career option that would allow me to achieve that goal. For this reason, I chose to interview my cousin, Ms. Sonya Wright, a professional school counselor at the Barack and Michelle Obama Academy in Atlanta, Georgia. In her position, she is expected to guide, support, and advise students and their families in hopes to alleviate any problems or issues that may cause the student stress. Her main goal is to be a resource for students so that they are able to successfully perform academically and mentally function inside and outside of the classroom. She is able to reach students in a way that allows them the opportunity for stability and support to succeed and thrive. Having the ability to inspire and influence a child in such a powerful way is something that strive for in my future aspirations.
Working in various school settings, I have been exposed to merely a glimpse of the future in which I pursue. I believe that this passion is driven by looking at my own school counselors when I was younger and realizing how great of an impact they have had on my life. From the counselors in elementary school that have helped me resolve issues with other children over a stolen crayon, to my counselors that pushed me over my limits at Rutgers University, I have become more aware of the positive impacts they have had on my life. I only aspire to be as great of a counselor to others, as they have been for me. This program embodies major values that I possess and would want to expand on in order to support the youth. Through the counseling program, I hope to gain more experience about how to help individuals in various topics such as academic support, self-development, and building relationships with these young
Thank you for allowing me to work with you and always being open to questions. You really contributed to my knowledge and my interest in working with children. It was always fun to work with you and learn from you. I think you do an amazing job with the kids! Wish you the best with your master. Have a great holidays
Some of my favorite memories made in high school thus far are due to my involvement in the Best Buddies program. Best Buddies is offered across the United States and is a non-profit organization dedicated to ending the exclusion of people with special needs. I joined the program my freshman year and was selected my junior year of high school to be in the Best Buddies class where I get to develop a closer relationship with all of the buddies. In total there are about twenty-five special needs kids that attend my school. I am proud to attend a school that welcomes these kids and always makes sure to include them in major school events and extracurricular activities. Recently, Tyler, one of the buddies, scored a touchdown while playing with our varsity football team. This was a proud moment for the Best Buddies class because we wanted him to have this amazing experience.
Greetings Founding Corps, I wanted to first express my gratitude for your dedication to the students of Miami-Dade county. I believe we will change how South Florida views early childhood education.
Each of us will show we are leaders by being positive role models for these young people by showing them we genuinely care about them and their futures. We represent the service component by taking time to work in an organization that is in need of volunteers. We recognize that this is not a faith-based organization, but we chose to act on our individual faiths by doing God’s work and serving others. We will demonstrate the pillar of learning by working with children from different backgrounds than we grew up in. Also, we will encourage the children to learn through mentally stimulating activities in a fun
This was a great experience I had and would love to do again in the community. I love working with kids and making their day. It’s always a great feeling knowing you helped a kid become better as a student or even as a person. I wished I had done this earlier because I had such a great time with my
A new high school called Apex Friendship was just built in Apex, North Carolina. The new high school is only open to freshman and sophomores of the 2015-16 school year. In the booming town of Apex people come from all over to take advantage of its growing economy and its welcoming community and also the great reputation of the schools. Apex Friendship had many critiques and people with many expectations of what this school was to become. I was thinking this could either be very, very, bad or one of the best experiences of my life. Many people thought it would be a great school, and the students that would graduate from the school would be a great representation of the community from where they went to school at. Others, mainly the students

Sampson, George, and Rameck could have easily followed their childhood friends into drug dealing, gangs, and prison. Like their peers, they came from poor, single parent homes in urban neighborhoods where survival, not scholastic success, has the priority. When the three boys met in a magnet high school in Newark

Let me start off by saying thank you for all the hard work you put in to improve students at Monroe City's lives. It can be a very difficult to promote positive growth, but you do it and do it well. You are a man that I hold in very high regards.
Hi roomie! I promise you that I am extremely easy to live with. There are just a few things that I ask from you in our roommate relationship: communication, honesty, and open-mindedness. These are all things that you can expect from me as well. Over time, I think that we will be able to get a feel of what it’s like to live with each other, and when we do, I think it would be best for us to discuss any rules that need to be established. I’m the type of person that likes to be straightforward when communicating how I feel, and I think that helps to avoid conflict. I am also very openminded and that has a lot to do with where I come from. Hawaii is known for its diversity, so don’t expect judgement from me. I’m always going to be willing to look
It all started when I decided to join the Youth Volunteer Corps (YVC) club as well as Student Senate in grade 8 where I would volunteer and participate in variety of events around the school that included food sales and school dances. Through the mentorship of older students, I was taught many skills and given the chance to help around the school whether it be by fundraising for the “Hydration Station” that is now in our school through food sales or helping to plan and create school dances throughout the school year for the enjoyment and entertainment for students of all ages at the school. Ever since joining these two clubs in the eighth grade, I have continued to be apart of them as both a volunteer and now a Leader. Under my Leadership of these two clubs, we have successfully raised enough money to
