If chosen for the ALT position with the JET Program, I would strive to establish a positive, fun, and upbeat environment that will bring excitement to Japanese students learning English. I took the opportunity to study Japanese during a language class while in High School and I learned so much from the guidance of my Japanese teacher, Mr. Zachary Carr. Mr. Carr’s course inspired me to become a teacher in Japan with his optimistic, calm personality and deep passion for teaching English and Japanese to his students. Mr. Carr also had no Japanese speaking skills while living in Japan, but with his determination and work ethic, he became fluent in the language. While in class, he never gave up on me and my classmates while he was teaching Japanese to us and thanks to him, I have grown a love for the Japanese Language. I will continue this route as an educator and make impacts toward student’s life just like how Mr. Carr impacted my life. I am convinced that my collegiate experiences, interest in Japanese language and culture, and desire to teach make me an ideal candidate. The biggest outcome that I hope to gain is acceptance by the Japanese community and for them to see how my hard work was a positive influence for the school staffs and their students. For example, I will create an after-school tutoring service for students to take advantage of receiving extra help. I will also participate in all social gatherings that the school has to offer. I will create side projects for

My freshman year of high school I joined JROTC because I knew it would look good on my college/job applications. I knew it was a good program that would help me become a better citizen and I was right; we do community service, service learning projects, and it teaches skills that are hard to improve on your own such as leadership.
Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) Nutritional Services is a federal program that provides health care and proper nutrition to low income pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women during a crucial time for both mothers and babies. The mission of WIC is to “safeguard the health of low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutrition risk by providing nutritious foods to supplement diets, information on healthy eating, and referrals to health care.” (Food and Nutrition Service, 2010).
Fear holds back a person’s ability to commit to an event, a relationship, and contains one back from his or her dream. As a child, I dreaded boarding an airplane due to the altitude and the pressure closing one’s ears, a terrifying experience. In addition to my fear of airplanes, flights would absolutely bore me. Hence, my impatient reaction of shaking my leg in a fast paced, up-down motion, a nervous tick. Over the years, every time my parents announced a trip that required an airplane flight, the idea would horrify me. Nevertheless, the distinct moments I boarded airplanes, there were always hints of curiosity about the bird-shaped flying machine. How does this strange machinery work? How could an airplane be this frightening? That fear was the foundation of my commitment to aerospace engineering.
I have had a long-term interest in the arts, culture, and history of Japan, and hope to help familiarize the American public with those lesser known aspects, as well as introduce Japanese natives to American traditions and values. I believe my professional experiences, time spent organizing extracurricular activities, and ongoing commitment to learning the Japanese language will help me to perform the duties of the program. I hope my experiences and perspective would be beneficial to the program, that my time teaching in Japan would be personally enriching, and that I can help establish a more intimate relationship and understanding between the US and
The National Junior Honor society, to me, represents the highest honor someone can achieve while in Middle School. Being accepted into such a prestigious society would not only give me an environment where I can improve my character, but it will also give me an experience which will help me gain a leadership position in the future. My intentions while in this society are to gain knowledge on what I can do to better my household as well as my community as a whole. While in this society I will work diligently to make positive changes to my community and school.
It is unbelievable that I have been selected to potentially become an NHS member. As I look back on the last two and a half years of my high school career, I realize there have been many times that I could have given up on trying to achieve my academic goals. I have had opportunities to cheat and lie my way through it, but as a meticulous student chose to do my very best the honest way. I have maintained a 4.0 grade point average, so I am an incredibly hard-working student. I promise to continue to work hard in order to keep getting straight A’s and that is only one reason I should be chosen to be an official member of the National Honor Society.
Currently, I’m teaching a group of high intermediate Academic English students from China and Saudi Arabia. They are all on a path to enter an American university and complete their bachelor's or master's degree in a variety of majors. My class size is 14 students and I teach them in the classroom 6 hours per week.
Upon graduation from high school with an above 4.0 GPA and a 28 ACT score, I received the Wildcat Excellence Scholarship from the University of Arizona in the amount of $6,000. Among the friendliness, location, and pristine medical reputation, this scholarship was a large reason why I proudly chose the U of A for my undergraduate studies, because without the financial aid there was diminutive chance of being able to afford a college education. During my first semester freshman year, I struggled with common ‘teenager problems’ (low-self esteem, peer pressure, etc.), but there was also an added weight: I graduated high school at the age of fifteen, and it was at that time I left home for university life. While academically, I seemed prepared enough for this challenge, emotionally I was still only barely sixteen,
If you have a love for the sky and aviation is one of your interests, you're not deterred from being in charge of at times more than 100 lives, and you have a soft spot for exploring the world than becoming an airline pilot is for you. Airline pilots have one of the coolest, most exciting nerve racking jobs out there. My goal for this paper is to explain all about how to become an airline pilot, what it takes to become one, the facts about the job, and some pros and cons of being in the field. My interest in flying was harbored as a child during vacations, my mother is a flight attendant so we traveled often. Whenever entering an airplane I was at awe of the sheer number of controls in the cockpit and the
My interest to participate in the summer immersion program comes from the passion that I have for caring for the vulnerable populations and my inheriting love for helping others. From the beginning of my nursing education, providing healthcare to vulnerable populations in different settings healthcare has always been important to me. I believe access to quality healthcare is a right that every person should have. My belief of healthcare for everyone has been my motivation for pursuing a career as a nurse practitioner (NP). I would like the opportunity to fulfill healthcare needs in people who do not have access to healthcare in low in come communities and countries by providing them
The purpose of this study is to examine the performance of pilots flying multiple types of aircraft in an experimental setting. Pilot performance will be assessed by written tests and simulator sessions. This study will build on a previous field study, Pilots Flying Multiple Aircraft Types or Multiple Flightdeck Layouts, which was conducted for AVS 4504 Aviation Safety Analysis. The results of that study showed a need for a simulator study to further identify if pilots have issues maintaining currency in multiple types of aircraft.
The STARS program is a process that most students have not even heard about, as a first time student myself, I was not even aware that the program existed. Most people might wonder what STARS is, for instance, STARS, however, stands for “Statewide Transfer and Articulation Reporting System.” It is an agreement that mostly a two-year college and most public four-year colleges in Alabama has that give all the transferring of courses taken to a public university in Alabama. In addition, most student wonder how to connect to STARS through their school site, it is an easy process; most colleges will have a link at the top of their website that will lead straight to the STARS site. However, from there STARS will give student instructions on how
