The “Early Life and Career” of John Pemberton stated that he was born on January 8, 1831 in Knoxville, in Crawford County. Pemberton grew up and attended the local schools in Rome. His family lived there almost thirty years. He studied medicine and pharmaceutical practices at the Reform Medical College of Georgia in Macon. In 1850, at age nineteen, he was licensed to practice with Thomsonian medicine and the Botanic Principles. And such pharmaceutical practitioners during that time relied heavily on herbal remedies and on purifying the body of toxins that seemed commonly suspicious to the general public. Pemberton, “otherwise known as Doc,” practiced medicine and surgical prodecures first in Rome along with the surrounding areas and then afterwards in Columbia. In 1855 he established a wholesale retail drug business specializing in material media. Before the Civil War he acquired a graduate degree in pharmacy, but the exact date and place are unknown. Pemberton and the Columbus Company were part of the analytical and manufacturing laboratories which were unique in the south. While Pemberton had one great obsession which was to create medicine and the perfect beverage, he although invented a lot of patent medicines and owned a successful chemist’s store. He wanted to do something more, something bigger. At age fifty, his chief interest in life was to patent a so-called medicated drink which could not only make him a fortune but also secure a place in scientific history
I would be the best person for a radiology tech job because, when I go to college to learn how to properly do it, I will get the hang of it. Basically what a radiology tech person do is take pictures of bones, the only reason I know this is because my sister work as a radiology tech. Im great at taking regular pictures but, taking pictures of bones is a whole different story. You have to use this big machine to take the picture. My talents are dancing and acting but, my talents does have anything to do with what I want to be in life. I really haven’t had any accomplishments yet but i'm working on it. In five years, I plan to be still in school because im trying to get a Dr. Degree, so I can be certified. I would also have another job until
Career choices are, and still greatly influenced by my parents. The typical theme in the household circled around becoming a doctor, and although it seemed exciting for my 14 year old self; continuing the stream of sciences in highschool slowly diminished my drive to obtain that goal. Whenever I tried to deviate myself from wanting to become a doctor, it made me feel almost selfish. To this day, I still don’t know what I want to be, and if becoming a doctor will make me happy shortterm or longterm.
As a kid, I loved making everyone around me smile and laugh. I would hug them, make up jokes, or just try to help them. I enjoyed watching their moods changed. I was amused by the way a simple thing could change someone’s day. I would put other people’s happiness first because making them smile made my day better. I could read their body language and almost tell exactly how they were feeling. A simple act of kindness could go a long way.
Education is one of the most important tools an individual can utilize in order to climb the social ladder towards a better life. In order to place my education on the fast-track towards college, my parents enrolled me into preschool at three years old. Preschool is a vital tool for children because they learn skills necessary for kindergarten, but about half of the children in our society do not receive this form of early learning (Education Lecture). During this time, I learned how to read, listen to adults other than my parents and participate in group activities with other children. Since I was one of the few children who learned how to read by the beginning of kindergarten, I was automatically sorted into the advanced classes by
It was just an after school job, or so I thought. I only wanted some extra spending money for the weekend, but what I received was something money cannot buy. This past fall, I started working at a recreational softball league, coaching kids on how to hit and the simple rules of the game. As well as occasionally umpiring the girls weekend games. Nothing of enormous importance, anyone can load balls onto a tee and learn how to swing a bat. I would show up Monday evenings for two hours and teach roughly fifty kids how to properly hit a ball, and given the fact that I played competitive softball my entire life, it was right up my ally. However, I did not yet realize how much this job would mean to me.
I have a good vocabulary, I can find reliable sources, I enjoy interviewing people and can get them to relax and answer questions honestly. I have already worked in a newspaper and I really enjoyed it. Because of my experience I can write unbiasedly. I am always on time and I don't mind putting my lunch hours to use and working on the jacket. I also am prettie gud at da spelling and da grammar.
After I graduate, I plan to work in the field that my major prepared me for such as being a teacher, writing for a website, or writng for a magizine. While I am working, I will be writing on the side. I will publish my work independently on the internet before I get to the point where I send my work to a publishing company to be reviewed. I will continue to work towards being a author until the day comes that I am published will have a completed novel out. I also plan to work closely with the editing and design of my books artwork.
My career aspirations are to work with, help, and mold students and children as a future educator and ultimately, an administrator. I hope to follow in the footsteps of my mother and keep the tradition alive of being a college graduate and a teacher. As a Hispanic, being a second generation college student and receiving higher education has always been an established priority of mine. As a future high school teacher, I plan to help urban and underprivileged students reach their highest potential. I’d like to somehow participate in changing the stereotypical cycle of discontinued education among these individuals and their families. Living in a diverse community, I’ve witnessed a stigma and cycle of undervaluing
Throughout my high school career, I have been a very dedicated student. Much like the prestigious students I surround myself with, most of my nights are spent studying for exams, completing homework assignments, writing essays, and keeping on track for the long term goal of college. My academic record does show how I am as a student in limelight. Some years my grades fall due to personal indolence. Other years my grades would be in flying colors, it was dependent on what my motivation was. I found that motivation around junior year and ended that year with a 3.79 GPA and a class rank of 40/145. Though I wish my class rank were higher, my school is a charter school so it is very competitive, even students with GPA's of above 4.00 nearly miss
From a little boy, I was always trying to find what to be and where I fit in the crowd. Being In school and observing clubs we had inside school was interesting, trying to fit in was simple, but it wasn’t what I was looking for. All the talents that I have were so naturally given and I got the chance not to change and find myself in serene place enjoying what I do. From finding out my talent for drawing and have so much skills for art, sculpture, etc. Looking for something you wanted to be good at and have it as a special skill was complicated, just being myself without trying I realized that you don’t need to look for your gift it’ll find you. Editing videos and producing films was another talent that I learned and enjoyed doing, but by doing this I learned my interest for traveling and socializing with people. With so much knowledge I’ve used it to my interest and have used it to my capacity.
I love working with children and I have previously worked as a teacher’s aide for five years. I worked in all the classrooms from ages two to five years old. I loved every aspect of my job as a teacher’s aide from the everyday, mundane tasks of “wiping hanabata noses” and changing diapers to the more rewarding moments of helping a child calm down and find comfort when their parent says good bye in the morning. My favorite part of working with children is watching them accomplish a new task for the first time. It is so rewarding watching a child grow and being a part of that process. Another goal of mine is to provide support to families in times of stress or hardship. I believe that because of my unique circumstances and my own hardships,
There are so many hours in a day. My school can only offer so many courses, and I can only attend so many of these while fulfilling graudate requirements. I attend school from eight in the morning until about five in the evening due to my added conservatory classes upon academics. My brain is basically already running beyond the confinements of the typical nine to five working schedule, yet still there’s still so much more I want to know!
When I looked into my future as a kid, I never saw it ending at age 16. When I was 6, I thought i would live in a castle and grow old with someone I loved. The next year, I was diagnosed with Leukemia. The next 11 years, I was in and out of the hospital getting treatment and most of the time staying home because I was so weak. On the days I did go to school, I didn 't talk to anyone and I just walked around listening to everyone talking about me. To them, I was just “cancer girl,” but one day, I met someone different, someone who saw me as a human trying to make it in this world. His name is Matt. The way we met was crazy, I had been walking in the hallway and I clumsily tripped over, as cheesy as it sounds, he came and helped me pick up my books. We never exchanged a word, we just looked into eachothers eyes, almost as if we were communicating through the soul. Days went by before I ever saw Matt again, and one day in the hallway he walked past me, turned around and dropped all his papers in his cluttered backpack. I laughed at his attempt to get my attention, and helped him pick up his stuff.
From my early childhood till today, my most remarkable characteristics have been my curiosity to learn new topics. My keen interest for learning new ideas, when combined with my inner desire to reach a degree of excellence in every piece of work I perform, enabled me to acquire significant knowledge on various aspects of nature and technology, as well as leading me through a successful educational career.
