It was May of 2016 when I went to Elitches for the first time.Before Ariana,Marisa,Nathaniel and I left I was cleaning the house.After I was finished cleaning I got ready to go,then we left.When we got there Ariana,Marisa,Nathaniel,and I went to get my season pass,there was a long line.After I got my receipt we had to go across the front of the building to another line we were there for about 20 minutes waiting to take my picture for my season pass.Then we got in line to go into Elitches.We had to passed the security to go into Elitches.
In my time at North, I have had countless amazing classroom experiences. The classes that I’ll never forget though will be AP Calculus with Mrs. Buckley, AP Statistics with Mrs. Schmid, and multiple advanced science classes with Mrs. McCreery. From the funny moments and inside jokes shared with classmates to
Learning French also fulfilled my interests in traveling. I had the opportunity to visit French-speaking African countries like Benin Republic and Togo. I did not only become fluent in the language, but also came to understand how the culture, beliefs, and traditions of man shape what values he represents. Likewise, I realized that factors such as art, literature, language, music, dance, laws, wars among others, are all key in the
At the age of five, I spent my nights running through my house screaming "I don't like English and I will never learn it!" as loud as I possibly could in Spanish. I had just arrived to the United States and was so terrified by my new environment that I
This will take you through the adventures from curious teenagers following in the footsteps of many Canadian soldiers that helped make possible the freedom Europe relishes today.
April 8, 2017. This is the day that my mom and I went to the MVA, and I got my drivers permit. The excitement hit the day I had gone to get it. My cousin and sister had both told me that I wasn't well prepared and that I wouldn't pass the test. Little did they know that I would prove them wrong. All night I had studied and eventually I started to doubt myself. I felt like my cousin and sister were right about me not passing the test, but I prepared myself anyways. The morning of I had waken up early and began to study for yet another time. At around 12 p.m I gathered all the documents I needed and left my house. On the way to the MVA, I started to laugh and smile as I usually do when I get nervous. I went inside the building and stood in line
The only foreign country I have even been to is Canada. And sure, Canada is great. I love Canada. Without Canada we would not have Canadian bacon, maple syrup, or teen pop sensation Justin Bieber, but it is not much different from America. I honestly would not have known I was in another country if it were not for the Canadian flags hanging outside of people’s houses where the American flags usually go. Of course it is an exciting experience to cross an invisible boundary to another part of the world, but the excitement is equal to that which I have jumping from North Carolina to South Carolina when visiting Carowinds, or driving past the big green “Welcome to Virginia” sign on the highway. The Earth is full of interesting, and exciting people, and places that I could learn a multitude of new information from. I know that there is a whole world of culture and perspective that I am missing out on. If I were to take a semester of study abroad as a part of the International Honors Program at Lloyd International Honors College I would learn more about who I am as a person and what I want to do with my life, and be inspired to learn more and push myself to better schoolwork and success at UNCG.
Fear, that’s what dominated every move in my life. Every decision I made was limited by it and every opportunity I received was spurned from it. Now, being new in a school is hard, being new in a neighborhood is burdensome but being new the entire country, well, you can imagine. That was me four years ago, new, insecure, oblivious and scared. Even while growing up, I wasn't the most chatty one in the room. I kept to myself but not because I didn't want to socialize, because trust me when I say I did, but because I was terrified of what people thought of me.
I was born and raised in Canada and I always identified as a Canadian. My dad is romanian and my mom is chinese and together they immigrated from Germany to Canada in 1999. There was a variety of reasons why my parents moved to this country, one of which was
I will look into camping, I had not thought of that as an option! Although if I am intending to go with Emily and Aurynn it's going to be difficult dragging their drunk butts back to a camping site after they insist going to a bar somewhere: "Kylieeeee I want to go swimming with the whalessss", "Aurynn it's three in the morning get your ass in the tent". I do have 12 years of french under my belt but i'm afraid my memory is slowly losing it's capacity to remember it all. I will undoubtedly go my whole life and understand french that is written and spoken to me, but speaking it will be a challenge.
Before I can tell you all about the man I am thanking today, I need to inform you of some things. Most importantly, you need to understand that I go to the little town of Granville, Iowa all the time. When I was a little girl, for years my grandma
UCLA field trip For my first science event I chose the UCLA field trip I went on with my biology. On Saturday April 16 , my biology classmates and I went to UCLA citylab. CityLab at UCLA is a science educational program run by UCLA undergraduate and graduate students that shows high school students to develop the world of biotechnology though “hands on” laboratory experience. I choose this event because it was so educating and fun. These city labs help me develop my skills in biology. While working in labs I also have fun , in citylab they make these plays that involve a problem that we need to solve. In this UCLA citylab , the problem was finding rapanzels real mother. In order to find her mother we needed to distract DNA from Mother Gothel and the Queen. In the end we found rapanzels real mother to be the Queen. I choose this event because I learned more about biology and I had a blast while doing the labs. When I'm older I hope to work in science , specifically biology that's why these labs are so important to me because I'm expanding my knowledge. When I first arrived I expected a complicated lab and many many students
This is my first year working at Windsor. I’ve been blessed with wonderful colleagues and a delightful group of students. It has been a great but at the same time a challenging new experience. One of the first things I was faced with was the huge academic gap between my students. An example of this is reading, my lower reader scoring at level 2 on the DRA test. My higher reader was well about level 30 on the DRA test. I was overwhelmed thinking about the best strategies to use to narrow the gap between my students. I needed to find a way to help my lower readers, and at the same time challenge my advanced students. One of the strategies I decided to try was peer tutoring. I started by training my higher readers to serve as tutors. Peer tutoring
After many recent trips to parts of France in the last few years, I have gained a fascination with the concept of communicating with individuals in various languages; these excursions have fuelled my passion to immerse myself into a language degree and to follow a path of foreign language and its meanings and uses in the world of work. Discovering aspects of the French culture like fashion, food and family life during my travels assisted me for my AS French Oral Exam and these experiences have led me to believe that time spent studying in France will help me to achieve my aspiration to have the ability to interpret the French and English language for both myself and others. Attending weekly sessions with a fluent French born assistant in my sixth form has helped develop my French linguistic skills and enhanced my confidence with communicating in the language. Although Welsh is a more diverse language to French, it is still close to my heart and I have a great desire to one day be able to speak the mother tongue of my home country fluently. Studying both French and Welsh at AS and A Levels has equipped me with the ability to communicate, to read and to understand both languages simultaneously. Despite only studying Biology at AS Level it has broadened my knowledge and cultivated me with critical thinking skills and has assisted me to have an understanding of science, beyond what I new before taking on this vast subject.
Furthermore, I have excellent verbal and written communication skills in both French and English. The French courses that I have taken in University provided me with the opportunity to improve my written and spoken French; I
