Sophomore Iman Hearing swings her flags gracefully over her shoulder and takes her place in line. As one of six, she marches down to the football field in front of the band, chin lifted and smiling big.
Students usually have a hobby or activity that defines them in a certain way. For me, it’s something not so common and you don’t see it everyday. Under the Friday night lights, you will see the colorguard on the green stadium field throwing flags, rifles, and sabres in the air. They dance in a sophisticated way to the beat of the music and catch their equipment with exquisite technique. On that field you will find me, alongside my team members, performing to my maximum and creating alluring art. Although our routines are mesmerizing, being in colorguard also comes with hard work, dedication and difficult tasks to overcome.
Last night, I was sitting cross legged on my bed holding Chinese take out in my hand while watching the new episode of Orange Is The New Black, which premiered on Friday at 12 am, long past my bedtime. I was behind everyone else in the game, only on the second episode on the third day of its release. The second episode dealt with a lot of issues, aside from Piper being convinced she’s Litchfield’s new “gangsta”, that I related to on a personal level. I’ll try not to reveal too much, if you’re like me and still on the second episode, but the audience finally got an inside look on Maria, one of the girls from “Spanish Harlem’s”, back story. The audience learned that she struggled with her identity as the daughter of a Dominican drug dealer. I, for one, am nowhere near
When I am asked to think of a situation that was intellectually challenging, my mind shifts directly to my experience in the color guard activity. While the activity is seen as simply a physical sport, there is a mental aspect that is adamant when performing. As a member of the
Upon entering into Barry University (B.U.), I was an insecure black African- American woman full of passion coupled with a myriad misconceptions of what I thought social work consist of. However, during my two years as a undergrad student I learned that those misconceptions had kept me stagnant in facing
Growing up in the city, participating in the urban school system, and being an active member in my community as well as working with the Allen County Juvenile Detention Center as a reading mentor, now in college, has given me first hand experiences of the negative effects of the justice
This exercise, while excellent for students, merely scratches the surface of the complexity that accompanies an UW mission. Building rapport with a G-Chief and training his guerrilla fights often seems like a walk in the park compared to developing strategic options for a UW campaign, tying the plan into the Joint, Inter-agency, Inter-governmental, and Multi-National (JIIM) partners, deploying as a singleton or small team to failed and steady states, operating in region specific language, and all the tasks related to UW. To gain a graduate level understand of UW, well thought out and complex training must be received to fully train on the numerous tasks outlined in TC 18.01, Special Forces Unconventional Warfare. This training is needed to ensure each Jedburgh team has the ability to build Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) and build a strong cohesive foundation. If the situation deteriorates in outside declared theatre of active armed conflict (ODTAAC) environments, Jedburghs do not have a division of infantry to run back to. They have well-rehearsed SOPs and a solid plan to evade hostile entities. Support could be days away, not minutes
Over the summer of 2017, I had the amazing opportunity to attend the gem boys state program, organized by the American Legion. It was an incredible experiences that in only a week, allowed me to seemingly grow up while also giving me a plethora of new skills and education. I was able to participate in the program after a competition was held by my local American Legion chapter to select who they would sponsor.
The next week was PRT training where we learned about life on the PRT, how to work with the military, how to interact with our Iraqi interlocutors and life in general on a FOB (Forward Operating Base), where I was headed or at the Embassy. There were basic intros into many of the players in Iraq providing assistance, USAID, Department of State efforts, and some of the many projects being undertaken.
I want to recognize both Doctor Garmon and Ms. Hilleary King for going above and beyond the call of duty to provide patient care. There was a power outage in building 302, on July 21 2016 at 4:30 pm and a patient appointment scheduled for 5 pm in the same building with Ms. King who happened to be working an extended
During my time at ALC, I’ve learned a lot from my peers. Prior to coming to this course, I thought I had a good understanding of how I projected the attributes and competencies of a good NCO on subordinates, peers, and my leadership. However, after discussions with my classmates about
This semester I learned a lot about writing in English 151. It has been a roller coaster ride with these essays for me this semester. I learned step by step how to write a good essay and how to have your readers be engaged in what you’re trying to tell them. Each essay I did has taught me something valuable I can take to the next level of English. I feel as if as the semester went by I did not take my writing that seriously and that reflected in my grades I received in each essay. It made me a better student and writer and it will reflect next semester. In this essay, I will reflect on what I learned throughout this semester that you should apply in your writing when you begin English 151.
Over the course of this reporting period I have made many calls to Dr. Hillman PCP, Dr. Dennis Neuropsychologist and Rain Bow Rehab. I have worked towards setting up the Rainbow Rehab program and obtaining orders. On 10/6/16 a meeting was scheduled at Rainbow Rehab to tour the facility with Etwan and his mother. Ms. Edwards did not show up for the meeting. I have advised Dr. Hillman of the lack of follow through by Ms. Edwards. Transportation will be arranged for through Rainbow rehab to avoid Etwan missing his therapy appointments. He was already discharged from the Hurley therapy program due to not attending appointments. Dr. Dennis has determined that Etwan needs these therapies to recover fully and get back to
3. Due to the high turn-over of field grade officers this summer, Captain Bruce is the officer who is available and has the need and desire to complete this seminar. Although he is not selected to Major, he has the knowledge, background, and the drive to do extremely well. Captain Bruce has a lot to offer in his capacity as a Defense Systems Analyst
The organization I worked for was Fox34. It is a Fox affiliate television station in Lubbock, Texas. I worked from January 23 to May 8, 2017. I was assigned to write scripts for the 9 o’clock show, which included writing a vosot, which is a voice over and an interview along with video. I wrote full screens, which are just a script with no video. I also got to edit videos for the show. Most of them went with the vosots that I wrote. I was assigned to write for the web. I would take the broadcast script and adapt it for online purposes. I got to time the show in the control panel. Also, I got to go to interviews and events with the reporters. My supervisors included Henry Ramos, Anthony Hall, and Audra Coffman. The area of media and communication
