Tyler woke up on a Saturday morning and got ready for the six hour car ride to what would be his new home for the next four years, Ohio Northern University. He said good bye to his mom and both of his miniature schnauzers, Bonnie and Clyde. Tyler then left with his dad to embark on a four year journey that he hoped to be full of friendship, knowledge, learning, and most importantly success.
Going into college at Ohio State my intentions are to have a career in public service. Through multiple internships thus far I have found a passion in serving for people. Growing up I have always felt the need to make an impact and give back to the community. Eventually, I hope to represent my community, the people of it, and those who are in need of representation. No matter what career path I choose, I hope to leave a legacy behind that will help the greater good.
My ideal career would be to work with children and support them in any form. By pursuing graduate school, I would focus on the fundamentals of my career and get the experience that I need to flourish. It would be an enriching and educational experience to be surrounded by individuals who share the same interests and goals. I am hoping that through my work I will become a valuable member within my community. I aspire to make a difference in the world, which may begin by changing the life of one child. Throughout my life, I have been surrounded by adults and educators that have managed to make a difference in my life. I admire their hard work and dedication that they have shown me. My ambition, is to help as many children and young adults as I can and make a positive difference in their lives. I believe that I possess the skills and experience to succeed in graduate school.
My whole life I have been invested in doing what I love, focusing on my true passions, as well as finding new ones. I have been very involved in my high school, and have been lucky enough to be a part of multiple clubs and activities. Without these activities, my high school experience and life would be a lot different. I have been an active drama club member, a part of ‘Bottlecappers,’ a club advocating anti-drug, alcohol, and bullying to younger students in my district, and many other community service opportunities. I am lucky to have the opportunity to be in these activities, as they have shaped me to be the young adult I am today.
Through experiencing social injustices, and making myself more culturally aware of inequality amongst social classes, I believe I have cultivated the leadership skills necessary for success. My willingness to reach out to the environment beyond me has exposed me to a career path that excites me and is my true passion. I plan to take action to improve the lives of the defenseless and those who are politically and socially disadvantaged. Through utilizing what I have learned by dedicating my time to service I know that I will truly make an impact on the lives of the helpless. During my years attending university I plan to continue a rigorous course load focused on a career path that truly intrigues me. I also plan on continuing to dedicate my free time to service and philanthropy. Overall, I have dedicated my high school career to becoming a leader in and out of the classroom. I hope that by attending University of Texas-Austin I will be able to utilize the resources provided to become a leader prepared to make worldwide change, continue on a path of academic achievement, and create a successful future not only for myself, but for those in generations to come as
It is with pride and humility that I have chosen Suny Empire State College as the institution to pursue my studies. This college affords me the opportunity of enrolling without the standard entry test, which is a requirement of most traditional colleges. It also allows me to tailor my studies in the area of Emergency Management. Suny Empire State College will makes it easier for me as a student to study and work due to the constraints of my schedule. Having a mentor is a great incentive, it provides guidance, motivation, and emotional support which is always needed and welcome. Another aspect of the college that captured my interest is with the flexibility in catering to mature adults, who are seeking to advance their career as well as their
Ashford University is a instituion that holds itself with great prestige and respect. While attending I'll be able to advance my knowledge of teaching and children’s emotional, social, and physical needs to better help them grow. I feel it will push my career and academic goals in the right direction aswell as push my limits academically.
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
Syracuse University is an outstanding place of higher education. It provides a diverse, stimulating, and exciting classroom, and one that truly teaches its students how to live a life of value. Syracuse’s level of diversity promotes understanding and tolerance in all, helping to eliminate racism and religious intolerance in its student body. Its stimulation helps to encourage its students to “always seek the light of truth,” as the words of the High School National Honor Society pledge echo. Students are always encouraged by the university to expand their knowledge, and to never stop learning. The feeling of enthusiasm on campus, provided not only in the classroom, but also through Syracuse’s wide selection of on-campus activities, such as Division I athletics, clubs, and service organizations, teaches students to seek opportunities to live a full and meaningful life. This is what I truly hope for my life, and Syracuse University can help me become
I am a southern bred leader, pursuer, and helper whos mission is to spread peace, love, unity, and respect among many to create a world of cheerfulness and brotherhood. I am Austin William Carricoand this is my story. All my life I have lived in the small town of Crestview and grew up among the wilderness along with its inhabitants. As the town grew exponentially into a vast city, my heart, my mind, and my soul grew with it, learning the ways to help others and slowly turning from a boy to the young man I am today. I now attend Collegiate High School continuing my journey at the ripe age of fifteen, still promoting peace as a mission for others even when I left my former school, Niceville High.

I write to express my interest in the tenure-track appointment in guitar at the assistant or associate professor level beginning fall 2018 at the Arizona State University School of Music. While I have taught at a number of institutions, my position at Georgia State University (GSU) has offered the greatest opportunities for professional growth. Consequently, my discussion of professional activities will focus primarily on the work I have done in connection with GSU starting in 2012. In this time I have revitalized a failing guitar program, reinstated its MM performance degree, and created a guitar chair position within the Georgia Music Educators Association (GMEA) while holding two to three part-time positions and maintaining an active
Ever since I can remember I have had an intense curiosity about the world and the people in it. This is probably due mostly to my parents who read to me nonstop but it has fuelled most of my learning experiences and given me a love of the world and of people, and the understanding of both of those. This love was further developed when I began four years of learning Attic Greek and Latin through a classical education. Then, after yearning to go overseas since I was eight years old and saving for it most of the time since then, I made it to England for six weeks this summer. Here my appetite for understanding is being indulged not just with words and pictures but with real world experiences which I can touch, see, and hear. Now, as I near the end of my stay, I am looking ahead to the rest of high school and I have decided I want to make the most of my junior and
In the words of civil rights great Mahatma Gandhi, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” Receiving an education, in my opinion, is the foremost responsibility of every individual who walks this Earth. Education, however, has different meanings for different people. In some cultures, an education may include learning agrarian or farming techniques. In many other cultures, an education consists of attending primary school, secondary school and later attending college. No matter how the concept of education is prescribed in a given society, this fact remains true: everyone desires to have learned more when they leave this world than they did when they came in. Personally, I desire to receive a college education because I believe that by receiving such an
If someone asked me where I am going to be in ten years, this would be my answer. I will have a great, high-paying job, and beautiful wife and family, and a nice sports car parked in front of my lovely house. When I look into the future, I see myself being successful and happy. Even though I always pictured myself this way, I never worried too much about how I would get there. I feel the Suffolk University can lay the groundwork for making these dreams into reality.
