My personal accomplishment has taught me a lot about myself and who I am as a person. It taught me how much strength I actually have within myself that I never in a million years thought I had. It was hundred times more difficult that I thought it was going to be going into it. This challenge that I feel that has been an important demonstration of a personal accomplishment is when I attended a student trooper program a couple of years ago.
During the fall semester of my junior year, my Aerospace Engineering teacher had a sign outside of his door about a program at NASA for high school juniors. Since I was interested in engineering, specifically Aerospace and NASA I decided to apply. So that night at the end of September I came home and filled out the application and wrote the essay and letters to my state representatives. I had told my parents at that point and they were excited and of course hoped I made it. I thought, “There are thousands applying and I won’t make it.”. Little did I know how wrong that thought was. When I received an email from NASA it stated Congratulations and that was when I was like: “WOW!”. I was shocked to say the least, but proud that I had made it into this prestigious program at NASA, that has now changed my life.
A major turning point in my life would be going through the Paramedic School. I say this because you must successfully complete the program to become a certified paramedic, and that was the only way to further my career as a first responder. Being a paramedic comes with immense responsibility, and the training to become one, is very hard and stressful. However, my Cardiology class; clinicals; and the National Registry Exam all taught me something about myself. Each of these has its own struggles, as well as its own significance, both to my career and me personally.
In 2009 I remember finding out I was three months pregnant. I was kinda excited but not really. I then realized that I had to make a few life changes quick in order to become more stable. I had to make a career change and make a choice on a career path that would allow me to work and have time at home. I finally realize that I would have to get a degree in a field that is in high demand and will never have to worry about down sizing or going out of business. That is when I had to think of what I enjoyed doing the most.
When assigned my first essay, “My Greatest Accomplishment,” I took time to brainstorm different ideas that defined me. The accomplishment that stood out the most to me was qualifying for State Track in four events on a sprained ankle. While writing this essay, I felt like a baby learning how to walk. My writing was unsteady and I took a few tumbles trying to get the paragraphs to flow. This reminded me of trying to run on my sprained ankle at the State-qualifying meet. However, like I finished the paper, I finished my events with qualifying times. I knew the essay would prove difficult, but I grew hopeful while writing because I knew I had numerous
My major accomplishments will be regarded as reaching out to the professional Hockey league. To reach out to my goal, I would have to work and train hard or I will not make it. Also that would include missing out on hanging out with my friends, going to parties, and avoiding circumstance were drinking, or drugs come in place, because both of those would end my career.
When I was but a boy, I had excelled in plenty of things in life. I had excelled both in the classroom and on the field. As well as maintaining an A average I held the title of star athlete in football, skating, and gymnastics. There was even talk about me continuing my educational career at Yale. However, once a damaging game of hockey occurred one winter knocking out most of my upper teeth, my life took an unexpected halt. For weeks, an ghastly pain resided in my jaw and false teeth were also being fitted.
Over the course of my career I have had the opportunity to work for dozens of leaders that aided me in the development of my leadership style. As one would easily recognize not all leaders had a constructive impact on my career but rather provided leadership traits to avoid. One person that I have learned a considerable amount from is my father. My father instilled in me the fact that I need to work hard, complete the task at hand, dedicate time to the betterment of my people, and myself and have fun while doing all of this. Another person that introduced considerable leadership influence on me are my grandfathers. My grandfathers lived very different lives; one was a businessman, while the other was a US Army post-WWII veteran, yet they had a uniformed message. That message was continuously grow, be aggressive in studies and work, stay active, and finish what you started. Two additional influencers of leadership are CDR Michael Fredie and MCPO Darrick Dewitt. CDR Fredie is a natural leader, and lives the quote made famous by Theodore Roosevelt, “Speak Softly and carry a big stick; you will go far”. He has the uncanny ability to influence others to work harder through passion and inspiration. Whereas MCPO Dewitt is an authoritative figure that demands respect and continuously inspires his workforce to better themselves in pursuit of bettering the unit, rating, and service.
My proudest accomplishment as a leader has been my time as the Group Commander of my Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps (AFJROTC). I successfully led the corps through a 5-year inspection by the AFJROTC headquarters. This inspection was the hardest evaluation my unit had gone through in its 16-year history. As the commander I was responsible for leading the cadets in preparation for the inspection.
My accomplishments would include my high school diploma, college degree, my work accomplishments, and personal accomplishments. I’m the first in my family to receive a college degree and that alone is a great accomplishment for me. I have been fully employed since the age of sixteen and have worked in many different types of jobs while attending school. I received the title of training manager at my first job, and was in charge of training the new employees. I worked at Herman Miller for a short period of time as a temp and had better quality control and more quantity produced then prior workers. I have excelled at every job I have ever taken. I currently work in a position with only the boss and I. I’m highly trusted by my boss and have ran
As a child, I was always taught to take advantage of any given opportunity no matter how big or small. Knowing this principle has driven me to one of the greatest accomplishments I could ever dream. In my life, my main focus and, goal has been to work hard on my true heart’s desire. Though every man has his/her own definition of an accomplishment mine came with a full package. Its opened more doors and presented more opportunities than I could ever imagine. Ensuring me with a continuous prosperous and, successful future.
One of my greatest accomplishment was helping a second grader improve his reading skills. I attended a local tutoring program called KIP (Kids In Partnership) when I was in elementary school. KIP’s mission is to aid students identified as "at-risk" by the School staff and adults who are learning or struggling in reading. Knowing how beneficial the program was, I decided to join as a tutor once I was in high school. I was placed to tutor a second grader who was struggling in his reading and math. I tutored him every Tuesday in an one-on-one tutoring session. During these sessions, I would help him on his reading homework and played math oriented games with him. When I first started the program, I attempted to have him read a book by himself;
Some of my best work accomplishments include being top spiff performer, and 90% quality assurance at my current position. I was a high demand substitute at 10 different schools in my last position, and I was promoted to Administration duties within 6months, achieving an average of 80-90% in quality assurance, and created morale boosting activates.
Our team practice everyday for 2 hours and our record was 23-1. We were the first team ever to win in our age division to ever win for St.Mary’s. We had a hard time in the beginning of the season. One of our best players injured her knee. She was running towards the loose ball and her knee twisted. She was out for the rest of the season. Looking back on it made me better because I learned how hard you to to practice or try to achieve your goal.
1. Maturity is a strong character trait that I pride myself in having, which gives me the ability to be organized and in control of my work. I aim to complete my assignments sooner than later and I do so by prioritizing my tasks. I have learned to use technology to my advantage by utilizing a calendar and setting reminders on my phone. I have also found using a written daily planner has been helpful in remembering my assignments. During the summer between my freshman and sophomore years, I chose to take an online Honors Biology course. I completed the class and all of its requirements at home without supervision and achieved a grade of 98. Accomplishing this shows my maturity to manage my deadlines and academic interests.
