My academic goal is to obtain my Associate Degree in Computer Technology. For the past year, I have been able to focus more on my education. At this point, I have roughly 3 to 4 semesters remaining before reaching my academic goal. With my determination, hard work and the support of my husband, children and close friends, I have been given the encouragement to push forward. These people are like my own personal cheer squad, giving me the strength and courage to keep, going when times have gotten tough. My career goal is to be able to obtain employment with a progressive company that will utilize and value the unique set of skills that I will bring to the table. I believe that with my background and life experience I will become employed. At this point I am also looking into internship opportunities and hope that when I get one that any future employers will see that not only am I dedicated, but also a hard worker. My education has many benefits. To begin with a direct result will be the satisfaction of simply obtaining my degree and a job well done. Then of course completing my degree will also make me more desirable as an employee, which in turn will help my family out a great deal financially. During the past 2 years, I have learned a lot, but I like to turn around and use that information to help others. For instance, anytime I see a vulnerability with the local public schools’ technology, I always notify the district IT. With that in mind I like to attend meetings
On a personal level I would like to get better at basketball as well as baseball. In three years i see myself being a little bit more involved in technology and graphic design. Sooner or later like every kid I will turn 18 wich mean time for a job i'm going to go into it strong I think i am going to work at Old Navy. I hopefully will be able to stay in this job as long as possible to make as much money as I can. These goals are important to me because it will make me feel good as a person. It is a good start as a teen to make money. School has prepared me because I will pick the right classes to assist me in my career.
When I think of my career goals, I ask myself what I want to accomplish in life. I know that I love helping patients and families, and I want to continue to do that. I always am changing my mind on what I want to do after my BSN. I don’t know when or if I will get my masters or continue to work at the bedside for a while. I love what I do and what I do for other people and families. Working in the critical care unit feels like home. I get to do what I love.
“Sport is the force that unites and empowers us to be better, no matter how you look, what you believe or what language you speak.” These words of Olympian Simone Biles illustrate my life-long passion for sports and the science behind it. I had been an athlete all my life and planned on continuing my track and field career at the collegiate level before a critical injury switched my focus from athletics to academics. When I began my studies at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, I knew my future would involve helping athletes grow to their fullest potential in strength, athleticism, and overall health. Having majored in Health Science with a focus in Health and Wellness Promotion and a minor in Nutrition, I would now like to concentrate on Strength and Conditioning.
My name is Elana Sanguigni, and I am a sophomore student at Pine-Richland Senior High School in Gibsonia, Pennsylvania. My interest in the Health Career Academy is immense, and I exhibit a profound interest in a future career in the health industry.

My academic love for Biology, Chemistry and all science courses, in addition to my love and care for people have led me to inquire a path of future health careers to utilize my desire to help people.
A long term educational goal for me was going back to school after 4 years and a second child. I kept putting it off for months and months .I was extremely intimidated due to the fact that I had two kids to support and; I would only be able to work part time. Finally I had to drive to greenwood to see the dermatologist and I said that would be the day I go to Kaplan. To make sure I reached my goal I started by cutting down my work hours and keeping in touch with my advisor. My goals were achieved after a month and I was proud it made me feel like I could achieve anything as long as I put my mind to it.
This class has overall been one of my favorite classes that I have taken over the past four years five years at DeSales. I learned more than I expected and have implemented some of these learned lessons towards simple excel calculations into my work at my job. For my chosen project, I decided to take a look at one of my hobbies. During my senior year I took a personal finance and discussed with one of my professors about my collection of trading cards. The result of this conversation, had me start thinking about the overall value of my collection for insurance purposes and if I ever sold the collection.
Growing up in rural Oklahoma, I have been involved in mission trips, Oklahoma’s Project under 21 program, Crossfit, and local community child care centers. Being involved in my community, I have been able to maintain professional relationships by communicating effectively with compassion and patience. This enabled me to stress the importance of daily dietary and hygiene needs and its impact on overall general health. These experiences have instilled a passion in me, which ultimately led me to pursue a career in the dental field. I learned more about the field soon after working with those community child care centers. I researched dental hygiene as a potential career by exploring articles on the internet,
In all honesty, I don’t know what I want from the world. So many ideas go through my brain, that I get a little bit frustrated with myself. I want to find the path that is true to who I am. I believe that the Career Exploration program help me find this path. At this point in my mind, I am stuck at a fork in the road between my dream jobs and I’m ready to finally pick.
Like many adult learners, choosing a major is often difficult. With there being so many degrees available and a number of fields to choose from, we often worry about making the wrong choice when it comes to picking a career field of study. This proved to be a definitive struggle for myself, especially early into my college experience but there was always something inside of me that longed to help others. This made my decision to pursue a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing through the accelerated program, a no brainer once I discovered that there was still a way for me to obtain a nursing degree after spending so many years’ prior, pursuing others.
I have chosen to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Management from Franklin University. I decided on this degree as I have spent the past seventeen years creating a career in the I.T industry, for one of the largest financial institutions in the world, and feel that this would present me with more opportunities for growth. I believe I have the technology knowledge and experience now, and I want to show that I have the leadership and management skills that will take me to the next level. This will also,hopefully, lead to promotions and more influence within my department, as well as the financial benefits that accompany them. My wife returned to school as an adult learner when she was 26 and obtained her

Participation in this program will support me and my goals to be the first person in my family to receive higher than a bachelor’s degree. I plan to receive my Ph.D. in abnormal child psychology, and I am currently in early education and care at my high school as my career path. I truly believe that I connect on a personal level with children and my interest in mental illnesses and why they occur fits into that career description perfectly. I would like to leave Delaware and experience the world, starting with where I attend college. Louisiana State University, Spellman University, or Texas A&M are my top 3 colleges that I would love to attend and pursue my career goals. I aspire to be very successful in everything that I have planned to do
Ever since a young age, I have aspired to become a strong, hard-working woman. Throughout high school I have gone through some personal trials that have tested my own belief in accomplishing my dream, but perseverance led me to Central Michigan University. People say that every challenge you face will make or break you, and I believe that Nouvel Catholic Central made me into the person that is here today. With all the occurrences that have led me here today, I will go forth with tenacity and determination to persevere through my college years into becoming the professional I believe I can be and face any obstacle that may come forth with steadfastness and indefatigability.
Known for my quirks and determined personality, I am the nineteen year old daughter of Dale Todd, a supervisor at an Interfor division in Baxley, Georgia. I am on the verge of successfully completing my second semester at Georgia Southern University located in Statesboro, Georgia. Although my plans have slightly changed as far as my career goals, I still hope to achieve a professional career. I had originally planned to go to school for Pre-Med, hoping to one day be a dentist, but after shadowing an occupational therapist, I have decided to major in exercise science. After obtaining that degree, I plan to apply to Augusta University in hopes to get accepted into their Masters of Health Science
As I stated in my personal goals, I am focusing in developing my interpersonal skills toward my professional and personal environment. Even though this is not my first psychology class, it is always encouraging to re-learn and discover new findings in psychology. During and after the course, I found myself practicing many of the communication skills throughout my daily life such as paraphrasing, avoid stereotyping and especially analyzing my own and other’s emotions. The collaboration of the course and my experiences, in my own opinion, has built a very sharp sense of my emotional intelligence. I always know that I am sensitive when observing a person’s emotions, but the skills that I gained from this class help to direct the message into more rational interpretation. For example, now I am capable to reduce or set aside my personal judgement when someone is telling me his/her story. I learn how to take the time to step back and digest their words without feeling offended. The most current example is the way I communicate with my husband. We are coming from two different cultural background, and communication could be hard sometime. Many times I realized that it was my frustration of not knowing how to explain things to him without getting mad. And off course a part of it is my ethnocentrism and also his. But as the one who have better understanding about human interaction, I have to be able to apply my communication skills in order to reduce or eliminate conflict. I am
