I was always different from the other kids in my class. I was reserved and quiet. Most would tell me that I always look like I was in deep thought. Well that's because I was. I always thought that I thought deeper and viewed the world differently than other people my age. I had a great interest in people, in fact they fascinated me. I greatly enjoyed meeting new people and listening to their life or things they like. So I guess one could say my interest in Anthropology dates back to grade school. History was always my best subject, I would always sit at the front of the class "bright eyed and bushy tailed". But I especially loved when they talked about different civilizations of people and the thing they did. When it was time to decide where I wanted to go to college and
My College and Career goals include graduating college and getting a job. I wish to attend the University of Alabama. I plan to major in occupational therapy or speech therapy. After I graduate with my bachelor's degree I wish to get my master's degree. After I finish my schooling I want to receive a job that allows me to provide for my family. I wish to receive this job in my degree's field. After receiving this job I wish to improve to reach a leadership role.
The topic of mental illness had become a recurring theme in my life during 2015. Health and wellness of the mind was a topic never brought up in my household during my childhood and well into my adolescence. My father always reminded me “Ashley, were black. We don't get depressed or anxious, we just face our problems head on because we’re naturally strong people.” Constantly hearing this gave me the false notion that mental
When examining myself, I am often labeled as being helpful, sympathetic, generous, friendly, responsible, cooperative, understanding, and kind when it comes to the social category. I am also self-confident, optimistic, agreeable, energetic, and ambitious when it comes to enterprising. Many people also see me as obedient, practical, efficient, persistent, careful,
As the United States economy requires more students to obtain college degrees, the number of students entering college unprepared becomes a pressing concern. According to Bragg & Taylor (2014) growing concern of college and career readiness (CCR) in the United States is requiring policy makers and educators to review factors that contribute to success. When students enter college unprepared, remediation courses are taken costing the student monies for skills that could have been completed prior to post-secondary education (Jackson & Kurleander, 2013). In order for students to meet standards set by postsecondary institutions, the students must demonstrate the skills and knowledge necessary. David Conley (2010) describes college readiness as, “the level of preparation a student needs in order to enroll and succeed without remediation—in a credit-bearing course at a postsecondary institution.” To achieve college readiness amongst all incoming college students, strategies must be developed for high school students to become college ready.
Something that make me smile, gets me excited, makes me do something is softball. I have played ball all since the day I could walk. I started off playing baseball since I was 2 years old. Then at age 8 I went on to play softball for a select softball team in Pearland. Playing softball has always made me smile! I love the intensity, excitement, and the teamwork that is used to play ball. We all look out for each other and try to pick each other up even when we are not all in the spirit. Some activities that involve science, technology, engineering, and math that I find to be fun is robotics and underwater robotics. Robotics has always been a big part in my life because my dad is a robotics teacher for this school and I always loved playing
Through college you learn many skills that will help you in your career. One reason I want to go to college is that more jobs are available after completing college. Many employers look for a college diploma on a résumé when hiring. I want my future job to interest me and this will help. With more options I can get a job that pays good and interests me. This way I will enjoy going to work everyday. I also need good pay so that I can get the things I need. Of course this all will help provide for myself. For example, food is an obvious priority. Also, I need clothing and a home. Overall college is a great way to prepare for a job, provide for my everyday needs and get a career that interests me.
Warren Buffett once said, “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.” Throughout the first years of highschool, I searched for that seed, the seed that would secure me a prominent future. A future where I would be enjoying the fruits of my previous labor. I went on a quest towards finding the perfect career that I would enjoy for a lifetime. Though it was tough, I managed to find my calling sixteen years into my life.
Passion is necessary to excel. Once someone loses desire or motivation for something it becomes quite difficult to continue doing well in that field. I went through a crisis of lost motivation in my first two years of high school.
Throughout my educational career, I gained the teaching of 32 magnificent teachers, even so, just two ever genuinely inspired my work, and strived to know my being as an equal, as a fellow. I have always attained the status amongst exceptional students, and time was on my side, it seemed, when I met one of the utmost inspirational teachers I have had the tremendous pleasure of learning from, Mrs. Leah Tucker, my art teacher, who taught me not only who artists were, or how to draw or paint, for three stupendous years of my schooling career; suddenly 8th grade came around, I was acquainted with Mr. Bevis, who has the probability of being one of the best English teachers, and inspirations I may ever have. Fortunately, bits of both of their teachings
The scorching oil splashed across my father’s forearm as he worked in a frantic hurry, ignoring the searing heat that ate away his flesh. He absorbed the trauma, swallowed the pain, and continued frying the chicken wings for his upcoming customers. Whenever he came home after toiling twelve hours a day in the cramped, hot kitchen, all I noticed was that permanent scar and the dark bags under his eyes. Noticing how closely I was watching him, my father held my face with his rough hands and reassured me, “I will make sure you will have a better life than mine.”
A college education will take me many places and open up many career opportunities for me. Without a college education, I would not be prepared for the cruel world. Going to college will help me develop the skills that are essential to be successful in this world. The motto that pushes me to get through my day is “you only get out what you put in”. Throughout my time in college, I have learned more about myself, and who I truly am. By keeping myself involved on campus, I have made connections and have built relationships with my peers. After my time at Kansas State University, my goal is to become a physical therapist because it will allow me to help make an impact on others. Without a college education I would be stopping myself from achieving my goals.
I have a very good idea as to what career I would want after college. The plan for me would be for me to go get a MA in history after FDU and then go into education. I think the goal for me would be to get a Ph.D. in history, but that would be further down the line. But if I was not on this path my two other career options would be public relations and counseling.
My journey towards reaching my career aspirations in business began five years ago when my mom made the fateful decision to work as a sales manager for Tupperware. It was through her that I was introduced to the world of business. Through assisting my mom in her work and job shadowing various people I reached the conclusion that I want to major in a business- related field be it management or marketing.
