The five items that I chose that best reflects who I am today would be a soccer jersey, earbuds, my key club pen, a book, and a beauty blender. I chose my soccer jersey because it reflects my love for soccer and how teamwork is everything. I also chose earbuds because it reflects my passion for listening to music, I listen to music on a daily basis with anything and everything that I do. I added my Key Club pen to the list because it reflects the dedication that I have for helping others around the community and how I hope to be able to do more in the future. A Book would be the thing that would best reflect who I am today because I love reading. Reading is my most favorite way to pass time, anywhere anytime. A beauty blender would probably
What defines me is my drive to help people, and the adrenaline and mental high I get from doing it. I can accredit this to my Aunt Rhonda who was a Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) During my early childhood. I remember her letting me sit on her lap after she got back from a long weekend of volunteering, and me marveling over her stories of the shift. By the time I got to elementary school, I had started carrying extra band-aids in my backpack so as to save the life of a possible wounded classmate. When I got into middle school, I was familiar with the first responder standards of care and had my own basic medical bag. I spent my weekends reading “Grey's Anatomy” and watching endotracheal intubation demonstrations on youtube instead of doing my homework. But everything I
Why I Became Me I saw, even though you tried to cover my eyes. I heard, even though you tried to block my ears. I felt, even though you pretended there wasn't a reason to. How could I possibly understand what I was seeing and feeling at such a young age? Who was there for me to talk to about it? No one..I had to comprehend so much. I sat behind the door with my back against it, when the screaming began again I closed my eyes this time. I pictured myself in a meadow with the grass being pure green and the sky being pure blue. The sun shined so brightly on my skin and the feeling of warmth comforted me. I could see a man walking up to me, but he was so bright you couldn't see his face. My throat was in a knot and my heart was heavy, but as
Vanessa, I’d like to say good afternoon, (or whatever time of the day it is), basically I just want to explain myself a little bit; just the part why I am so nice. If you really do not care it is alright with me, just stop reading here, I completely understand if you do. To get back on topic, let’s start with one of the biggest misconceptions, the reason why I’m so nice. It is simply because it’s the way I was raised. I was told to be nice to mostly everyone, due to the fact that you don’t know what is going on in their life. The other reason is that I hate seeing others having a bad day. It’s just my personality. I’m not being nice because I think your daughter is a “catch”, I’m being nice because it’s just the way I am. Then the other side
How I Got to Where I Am While growing up at around the age of six my family and I moved to America. At the time I only knew a few words and they were "Hi, and, the" Only way I knew those words was from sneaking into the room where my parents used to have English class and hiding under the table. I would stay quiet and listen to what was being said while at the same time trying to get a good look on what was on the white board that was leaning against the wall until someone would notice me under the table and make me leave the room.
The environment around me has molded me into the man I am today together with its strenuous experiences and jubilant moments. In addition, those memories have created a blazing ambition to become a more intellectual and compassionate individual. Next, my community and certain individual have thought many fundamental aspects that completely changed on how to view this world today. For instance when I study martial arts under Sensei Deanna Bivins, she trained me to become more self disciplined no matter the path that lies before me. Furthermore, the number one person that has carefully raised and taught me almost everything I know is my father. My father has educated me around one concept “Don’t do unto others what you don’t want others do unto you” and because the golden rule was always so close to my heart, I have always grasped the idea of being kind to others. Similarly, I think being involved in my community not only
Well to tell you how I became the person I am today. You will have to know my past because my past is what molded me into the person i am today and who i will be in the future. I was born in washington D.C in holy cross hospital. Born with a single mother my dad had left us when i was only 2 since then me and my mom have been moving a lot around the united states and for some time out of the united states. i lived in canada for some time then we moved to california then to north carolina then to maryland. Everywhere i've been i picked up some mannerisms and some male influences that weren't the best but i've always stayed out of trouble. By playing my favorite sports like basketball and football. And a goal of mine for a while was to be the
Muqit khandaker Moving from place to place not much other than family remain constant and that too takes a different shape with time and makes me both accustomed to change and more importantly, prepared for it. Moving every few years is a gift and a curse, giving you a clean slate when you both need it and when you do not want it. It is always difficult to move away from good friends, teaching me to remember all those who left a mark on me .
In my Life, I have had many experiences that have shaped me into the person that I am Today. One experience being when I was able to volunteer at the Booker T. Washington Nursing Home with the Hopewell Baptist Church Sisterhood Ministry that is based in Shreveport. Our objective was to keep the Elderly patients company and we decided entertain them by engaging in Bingo and giving them gifts in the forms of cookies, snack cakes, and toiletry items. To be perfectly honest, I didn’t know what to expect upon my arrival at the nursing home.
There have been many people that has helped me be the person I am today and has help get to where I am today. It’s only right for me to give back to my community and the future generations that will make a difference in this world. I may or may not be able to donate my money but I can help them with something better, what I know best, which is the right mindset and person to be a great athlete . Since I have experience in playing sports and there are many things I can teach them, physically and mentally. Also coming from a championship team, I know what it takes for a person not just to be a great player but also a great teammate. I can volunteer my time with younger athletes and teach that there are more to sports than just sports. I know
What made me who I am today I have a secret that I have not told people about me. But now seems like the right time for that secret to be known. My secret is that my brother Kyle and I were adopted. Why I have never told anybody is because
The choice that was the most frightening helped me grow as a person. Challenges pushed me to the best of my abilities. I had to take a risk and explore the unknown to understand my fear.
We should celebrate life every day, celebrating who we are as a person and appreciating every moment every step that it took to become the person we are today. I celebrate the opportunities and challenges that I have encountered along the journey to becoming who I am today. Sometimes that journey has been misunderstood by people close to me, as they don’t always remember the steps, the moments, or even the challenges it took to get to where I am today. It is I that remembers every challenge because I lived them--every moment etched into my very existence molding me into the person I am today.
I'm going to tell you a story about how I ended up where I am. When I was 4 and could semi speak in sentences, I began talking to someone, no one fake and made-up, no stranger either. They were completely real, but they had the power to hide from my parents but only I could see them. My parents asked who I was talking to, I pointed to right behind them but my friend turned himself invisible. They turned back around to face me, something was wrong, it was shining in their eyes. They left without saying a word, only looking down, shaking their heads. Later that night I remember hearing them argue. I tried listening to what they were saying, but I couldn't understand any of the words they were using. They seemed.....foreign. Spanish maybe? I just
Looking at how I have changed from freshman year of high school to where I am now I can’t begin to list all the ways I have grown. Trying to guess what I will have learned about myself after my years in college is nearly impossible but I can try and imagine it. After four years, I will have grown more confident in myself and thrown away the idea that what other people think of me matters. I will have learned to go outside of my comfort zone and meet new people, go new places, and take risk. Most importantly though, I will discover what is really important to me in life, and who I am as a person. Hopefully I will figure out what direction I want to go in life and the lessons I will have learned will have prepare me for that next step.
