When I first began this journey of obtaining my degree I had the goal in mind to continue my education until I receive my Doctoral Degree. By obtaining my Doctoral Degree in Business Administration I can make a difference in people’ lives by sharing the knowledge I have gain through my educational studies and work related experiences. As a student of Saint Leo University I have been able to apply the University’s six core values of Excellence, Community, Respect, Personal Development, Responsible Stewardship, and Integrity to my life experiences. I volunteer at numerous community events, such as the city of Newport News annual South East Community Day, Family Redirection Institute’s C4 annual week long Community Event, and Portsmouth Redevelopment and Housing Authority Community Day Events, that are geared to bring together and empowering the community. Through applying these core values to my lifestyle I have gained more insight and experienced more fulfillment with the achievements I have accomplished. By obtaining my Doctoral Degree I will have the opportunity to expand my knowledge and gain a better perceptive for the corporate environment, community and
Many of my studies have focused on subject matter relevant to the teachings of the faculty at Memorial University such as the topics of climate change, the geology of coastal landscapes, oceanography, cartography, global positioning systems, remote sensing, and geographic information systems. I hold an affinity of interests toward technology used for geospatial data acquisition such as ERDAS Image and ArcGIS. Map making is a big interest of mine. Recently, I have spent many long hours designing maps with various software including Adobe Illustrator, ERDAS Imagine, and ArcGIS that were largely enjoyed. When I graduate from San Francisco State University in Spring, I will have fulfilled degree elective requirements for both resource management and geographic analysis techniques.
I am writing to express my interest in the biology teaching position at Bard High School Early College (BHSEC). I am currently holding a New York City initial certification in adolescent biology education as well as a Master degree in Biology. I have experience teaching at a high school as well as a college level. I believe that my experience and qualification is a great fit for this position.
1. I expect a great deal from my time with Virginia Commonwealth University Honors College. I enjoy that I will have an adviser that truly cares about my wellbeing and education, and I believe this will help me succeed as I pursue my Bachelor’s degree in Biology. I hope to become close with the faculty and staff of the Honors College as I strive towards my ultimate goal of becoming a Reconstructive Plastic Surgeon. Although I plan to commute to and from VCU for classes rather than stay on campus, the Honors College dorms are an extreme luxury provided to those students that are qualified. I also am ecstatic about the special classes and curriculum that is available to Honors students. I am pursuing VCU in an attempt to further my education, and I believe the Honors College is my best opportunity to do so. I look forward to exploring all the Honors College has to offer, and I hope it will help me to become a better student, graduate, and person all around.
My initial interest in nursing began from my experience with my grandmother. It was in the fall of 2007 when my grandmother was sent to the hospital due to hypernatremia. My dad would pick me up every afternoon from school to visit my grandmother. I was given the responsibility to look after my grandma for nearly two weeks that includes in feeding her, assisting her, and other light duties. What fascinate me during my visits in the hospital were the nurses who assisted and took care of my grandma. They treated my grandma with dignity, kindness, compassion, courtesy, respect, understanding, and love. Their commitment, professionalism, dedication, determination and skills inspired me to pursue a career in the medical field. From that point, I realized that nursing is a field that enables people impact other people’s lives and make a difference. At 9 years old, being a nurse was a childhood dream and now I am at the point of turning my dream into reality. I want to study and pursue my dream registered nursing at Ryerson University that offers a nursing degree program that focuses on developing student’s critical thinking skills, ability to analyze reflectively and apply theory through community health focused practice making Ryerson one of the best nursing schools in Canada.
I always have enjoyed learning Mathematics and have been fascinated by Business. This interest has led me to pursue my future study and career in the field of Business Analytics. At this stage, I am filled with genuine pleasure and profound optimism to submit this personal statement in support of my application for continuing my education at George Washington University.
When people hear the word “college”, many panic inside at the thought. But, when I hear the word “college” I think about Illinois State University. In early July, I attended an Open House at ISU for my very first official college visit. As I stepped onto campus, I couldn’t but help to feel like it was my future home. Many aspects of the tour made me draw nearer to choosing this college after finishing my High School career. Illinois State University seems to fit my personality very well, has an amazing program for what I want to study, and is an outstanding campus for my academic strengths and weaknesses.
I put on the lead apron and walked into the operating room. I was shadowing an interventional radiologist, and although I was just watching the procedure, I was nervous. What if I faint? What if I get queasy during the surgery and have to walk out? These questions filled my mind with diffidence. But as I stood there, just a few feet from a doctor carefully maneuvering a catheter around the vasculature of the patient’s brain, I had never been more intrigued and excited. My feelings of self-doubt washed away as a flood of fascination and curiosity came over me. I watched as the doctor skillfully pulled the blockage out of the women’s brain and place it on a tray next to me. The enormity of the procedure was not lost on me. Sitting next to me
In my time at Albany University I have had time to mature and pursue my passion for serving people through medicine. One factor that has aspired me to study at Oklahoma State University is their emphasis on serving rural and underserved areas of Oklahoma. I was raised in a rural area of New York and really love the environment and people. One of the best parts about growing up in a rural area is the ability to getting to know everyone in the community personally. In high school I got to see the continuity of our community first hand when two of my fellow classmates passed away tragically. During this time our community came together to help our classmates families by holding fundraisers and holding gatherings to show our support. It was amazing to see continuity of our community during these tough times. Being able to form connection like these is main reason why I wish to support my community wherever it may be through
From the time I was in junior high, my grandmother had been telling me about College of the Ozarks and trying to convince me to attend the college. After much consideration, I decided to make College of the Ozarks my top priority when applying to colleges. The atmosphere of the college, the perfect distance from home, and the opportunity to work for my education were all major factors when making this decision. I had attended private Christian schools for most of my life, so the small campus and Christian values of College of the Ozarks appealed to me much more than the chaotic partying ways of a larger university. I knew if I attended College of the Ozarks, many of my classes would be more difficult than at a public university; however, I saw the difficult classes as an opportunity to learn more, which I believed would help me later in life. I also knew the professors at College of the Ozarks would be more caring and more willing to help than those at other colleges.
Even in my youth, I was concerned about the environment and humanity’s impact upon it. That concern developed into an ardent passion to fix or mitigate the issues we are bringing to our world. Thus my resolution to become an environmental engineer was born. However, most schools do not offer this program, and it has considerably narrowed my options. My search has led me to Rensselaer, the first college to establish an accredited Environmental Engineering program. While visiting Rensselaer, I spoke with an environmental engineer major, and she described her research and internship experiences. She specifically mentioned class lessons devoted to water quality. I have been doing research on this topic for the past two years and find it fascinating. Therefore, I was glad to see that I could use class instruction to build upon my prior knowledge. During
I am a girl from a small town in Lebanon who attended a school that consisted of 20 classrooms for all elementary, middle, and high school students together; therefore, being at a modern and growing college like Wake Tech is a blessing. I truly believe that being a student at Wake Technical Community College is a privilege that opened up many doors for me. It has exposed me to several opportunities such as being a member of the Carolina Student Transfer Excellence Program for UNC Chapel Hill and a work-study student for the Records and Registration Department, along with the Advising Center. You could basically say that I live at Wake Tech, I am on the North Campus all day, five days a week. On this campus, I complete homework, attend classes, go to work, and keep
Since I was fifteen I have always been drawn to answering important questions, engaging in meaningful discussions, and touching lives in intentional and personal ways. My favourite thing to do is disciple; engage in authentic conversations about life, relationships, and Jesus through a mixture of counseling, mentoring, and teaching. I
I know that thousands of students throughout the world have applied to Long Island University (LIU) because they hold it in high regard. I have admired LIU for quite some time, and from my many visits I have come to love the diversity of people on the campus atmosphere and need for knowledge at the Brooklyn Campus and in the nearby area. It is because of my extraordinary esteem for the university that I write this GPA letter of appeal. When a school such as LIU is so flooded with qualified applicants, the position of the admissions officer can certainly be frightful. Frankly, I do not feel that LIU is wrong to selecting a class modest to be equaled to the number of students’ desire attending LIU. I am writing this letter as a request for my admissions decision for the
