Serving others by utilizing the lessons I have learned through my experiences and my talents is how I want to live my life. As a first generation college student, I want to integrate myself in programs or start my own mentorship program where I am able to mentor and give
In light of being denied the Federal Pell Grant from applying for the FAFSA, I will now rely upon grants from scholarships I have been applying for. Along with my own money from future jobs and my family's contributions to my education. For the past year and still continuing, I have received money from my family in order to save up for college. Money that I received during daily responsibilities around the house. No matter the quantity, due to the fact that I am unemployed. For the reason that I have been entirely focusing on my high school education since I am still in High School and in the ACE Program. Nevertheless, I plan to obtain a job in the near future to aid my education in Chandler-Gilbert Community College. Whether that job is in
Growing up with high expectations my mind has always been set on the idea of college. However when thinking of the “right” college for my future, I never knew If I would be able to fully commit and choose which one was best for me. I wanted something that would be comfortable for me that also meets my criteria that would make the college transition a bit easier. Since I’m going into something new, my decision would end up being based on the class sizes, the costs being affordable, the majors and degrees available for Nursing, and the location and how close it is to my family. It was a hard decision however one school had it all, which is why I’ve decided to further this chapter of my life at West Texas A&M University.
In my life, I have had to make made many difficult choices, each with their own consequences, but the most significant choice I made occurred three years ago; I decided to leave my home state of Maine, and enroll in Texas A&M University. This decision has had a major impact on my life, and continues to influence my life today for better and for worse. I've grown to be more independent, but as the same time my debt increases every semester.
I started my college education at Chandler-Gilbert Community College, then to GCU. My passion to help others was evident in the classroom resulting in my professors recommending that I became a tutor at the college’s learning center. I worked there for three semesters tutoring math and science. In addition, I volunteered at Chandler Regional Medical Center where I accumulated over 300 service hours working in the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU). After earning my bachelor’s degree, I was offer a position to work in the CV-ICU at Banner-University Medical Center. I am also an RN supervisor at Southwest Behavioral
Untitled Being a non-traditional college student is hard for anyone, for someone who gets anxious easily it can be even harder. I remember my first day of college, I had spent the previous week sick and could barely talk because I still had a lingering cough. Pacing back and forth at home, I contemplated if it was too late to back out and quit school before I had even started. I changed my clothes several times and thought about giving up so much that I was nearly late to my first class. Additionally, in all the excitement I only took the time to know when my classes started and not where they were actually held. I had no idea why I was even here.
In the fall of 2005, I took my first steps onto the campus of Appalachian State University with my sister who was entering as a freshman. One of my most vivid memories from my childhood is walking hand in hand with my then eighteen year old, wide eyed, and
I am Efrashia Nicole Crespin and I was raised here in Las Cruces, New Mexico. I had recently moved to Hobbs, New Mexico and came back to finish my high school career and start at New Mexico State University the following semester. I am majoring in the school of Hotel, Restaurant, and Tourism Management as for short we call it HRTM. I have received numerous scholarships from the university in pursing in bachelors here at New Mexico State. I am grateful for the opportunities the school as offered to me coming from a very low income family.
As a faculty member, I have experience teaching to diverse audiences. During my time at Youngstown State University, I worked within a student population that had a significant minority and low-income population. I provide opportunities for all students within my courses. In my class, I foster an environment where students
2015 Fall is my first year at Harper College, within my experience and new chapter in life I was introduce to a very unique person that will not only help me figure out what I want to pursue in life, but a smile and composition to teaching and helping. Dr. Grant one of the most unique faculty member that one can be introduced at Harper College. I have had the great opportunity to meet and be taught by Dr. Grant. FYS was one of my first classes at Harper College as a starting freshman. Being brand new into the system of complexity which is college life. Dr. Grant understood and helped us connect with peers around us. One of the biggest steps of starting in college is stepping out of the shell and expose yourself to your other classmate. One
The journey to becoming a student at Jones Technical Institute started a long time ago. I was academically expelled from Ball State University after my freshmen year. College was an undertaking I should have never tried simply because I was not mature enough to handle that kind of responsibility. It is not like I drank and partied all the time, I simply just did not go to class. For the rest of 2007, I was searching for work. I sent applications into every temporary agency in the City, and felt like I applied to every job opening there was, but sadly I never heard anything back. That failure to find a job led to one of the most exciting experiences of my life.
There are two main goals that I would like to achieve by the end of my first semester of college at Youngstown State University. First, I would like pass all of my courses with at least a B. Second, I need to realize that I am paying for this expensive
Well I'm hoping to transfer within the month but I want to make sure that the credit that I do have will be transferred over, and to understand what classes that I would still have to make up, also that the 504 that I have now will be accepted, like I stated previously the school I went to before; I don't know how to put it in a polite way they basically screwed me over and I lost all of my junior year credits even though I had multiple 504 plans and Doctor notes. I would like to set up a meeting to talk more about what I would have to do to be a student at Deer Valley.
My decision to enroll at Grand Canyon University was in August when I turned 25 and felt I was not living up to my potential. I am currently a receptionist and I know I am too smart to be wasting my creative drive answering phones and running other employee’s errands. To reach my goals, I need higher education. I researched many online schools, but none stuck out quite like GCU did. I kept putting it off until I received an email about a scholarship only offered in November and I decided right then and there, it was time to go back to school.
My life changed dramatically when I hit my freshman year of college, and many things happened to me that I could never have foreseen. I have made horrible choices while in college, not just simple things that could be dealt with in a day or a week, rather it is going to affect me later in life. I was on the college
