This greater sense of complexity within the world would enhance my personal and intellectual progress. Studying abroad would establish my ability to communicate and connect with other nations and cultures. It would widen my view of the world and even help me have an improved understanding of the culture I live in. Working to understand it would be a prodigious start to developments, within myself and learning to transform the world around me for the better. My overall experiences granted through the university would exponentially escalate, aiding me in becoming a self-sufficient, confident person. I want to do my absolute best for myself and those around me, which means doing my best to fully understand the world I live in. The better I can understand and work efficiently in the circumstances we live under, the quicker our world can progress into a greater state than it is currently in. Increasing my critical thinking skills and awareness of what is happening around me can help me transform the society we live in and enable me to pass that knowledge along to
I just can’t believe there is only few more days of high school left. As the days are getting closer and closer, it's getting sad. I still remember the day I stepped into Maine East High School as a Freshman, at that time, all I wished for was to graduate from this school with good grades. High school was not the way I imagined, it is way different from what I thought and definitely different from Middle School. Freshman year was the “exploring/adventure” year, finding where each classes were, what activities/clubs were offered at this school and many more. Freshman year went quickly and then Sophomore year came up. Sophomore year was probably the least stressful year in high school but from Sophomore year my family and friends started asking me the scariest question “What are you doing after high school, which career?
Just as the sun started to shine right through my window into my navy blue room on a Saturday morning, it crossed my mind that it was game day, but not only did I have a football game today it was the state finals. My team and I have been working hard from early July until late November, preparing for this one two hour game. We have been lifting weights in the 100 degree weather, running three miles to the beach and back and working our butts off just so we could drive down to Peoria as a team for the state championship. On this Saturday morning I set my alarm for 7:00, I am gonna eat a good healthy breakfast and mentally prepare myself for the big game ahead of me. At 7:00 my eyes drifted open from a deep sleep I jerked out of bed with a great
For my years to come in a short amount of time I intend on accomplishing many great goals. As any other senior in high school my main goal right now is to graduate high school. Following high school, my main goal is to be accepted into the University of Georgia to study in their College of Arts and Sciences with the intent on becoming a pediatric dentist. During my time in college, whether it be at the University of Georgia or not, I am determined to study abroad in Oxford or London, England. I have chosen to participate in this program in order to expand my perception of the world and its people. Being a young woman from the hometown of Lithonia, Georgia and having the mother that I have, I have not seen anything outside of the states that border Georgia. This opportunity to study abroad will be my chance to experience a culture fresh and new unlike the one that I have been accustomed to for eighteen years. With this experience I will anticipate the opportunity to become a Rhodes Scholar and bring my education to the UK. These all are priorities of mine, and I must assure that I set myself in the right position to achieve
I want to study abroad because of all the opportunities it offers. Studying abroad would be my first chance to explore the world on my own. It would also provide me with numerous opportunities to learn in and out of the classroom. Studying abroad is the best of both worlds. I get to further my education and make progress to become the physician I wish to be, while living in a totally new and exciting environment. Getting to learn and adapt to a new culture presents its own challenges like culture shock, but in the end I think that it’s an important process that everyone should go through. I believe that studying abroad would also make me a better doctor. I feel that learning about a culture different from my own and having to adapt to it will make be able to account for people’s culture before making assumptions about their choices or behaviors. My values and beliefs may differ extremely from that of my patient if they come from a different culture.
In the last several decades, studying abroad has become a popular and exciting part of many students’ educational careers. As Kimberly Gray explains, “Study abroad programs have in recent years become increasingly legitimized as forms of experiential learning.” As programs for studying abroad expand, those debating on whether they should try it or not may ask themselves what is so special about continuing their education in a different country, or how it will impact their future after school. Although some would say studying abroad has few benefits to your future career or life, being immersed in other cultures and studying their languages while going to school can help your professional and personal ventures.
That New Years was the most rough,fun,exciting and painful New Years I have experienced in my 14 years of life. The people who were present were Lorrissa, her older sister Leena, Megan E. , Jadynn and of course me. We were spending that New Year's at Lorrissas hoping for a fun night. That night was mostly fun but at times it was… dramatic to say the least.
Not being able to graduate has affected my life, a bunch. Not graduating, made things difficult for me, however, made things better, but on the other hand, made them even worse for what I had been under, stress and pressure. The one person putting the most pressure on me, was none other than me, but my family puts some of the stress on me too. Not being able to walk and graduate from High school, had been already humiliating enough for me, how I brainwashed myself, and was thinking of my future, had yet to hold for me, it was setting off all those stress factors. I was thinking constantly, "what should I do now?" The stressful tension was already too much handled, but having some of my family put me down was even worse, I struggled with my ACT, and worried about passing my classes at Ridge, and competing my requirements. Trying to pass a test I was already worried about, I kept thinking to myself, I’m going to fail, which wasn’t a good attitude to have. I couldn’t help it, but felt it was, it the only way to go, so I let myself confidence, the honor in myself, to go down. All the negative thoughts I already considered about myself, what I was thinking, and told by people was hard for me; but finding out I was not going to graduate and have my diploma was even harder to hear. Completing school was very different than finishing school. Instead of getting my diploma from High School, I received a certificate of completions from Ridge Community, to me that
Not being able to graduate has affected my life, a bunch. Not graduating, made effects difficult for me, however, made effects bigger, however on the other hand, made them even worse for what I had been under, stress and pressure. The one person putting greater pressure on me, was none other than me, still my family puts pieces of the stress on me too. Not being able to walk and graduate from High school, had been already humiliating enough for me, how I brainwashed myself, and continued thinking of my future, had yet to hold for me, it enduring setting off all those stress factors. These thoughts that were racing constantly, "what should I identify now?" The stressful tension had been already too much to handle, but having a few of my family put me down was even worse, I struggled with my ACT, and worried around passing my classes at Ridge, and competing my requirements. Trying to pass a test I remained to already worry about, I kept thinking to myself, I’m moving to fail, which wasn’t a strong attitude to have. I couldn’t assist it, but feel it was, it the only way to drive, unusually I let myself confidence, the honor in myself, to drive down. All the negative thoughts I already considered around myself, what I was thinking, and told by people was tough for me; but finding out I was not moving to graduate and have my diploma rest even harder to hear. Completing school was actually different than finishing school,
“Studying internationally is a new experience for everyone, and with new experiences come new challenges.” –Lao Tzu. To think that studying aboard does need courage living in foreign country studying far from one’s parent is a huge step to take in life. Living alone far from family, meeting new people, learning new culture and the needs to blend in and learning the American ways. There are some positive effect of how being an international student has matured me and how the modern live style has changed my behavior. Studying in a developed country from a developing country has changed the way I think after learning the culture of American people. At first culture shock has made me passively interactive to local people. As an outsider being nervous and avoiding local is normal at first. However, after learning the ways of the local I have adapted to the culture and has shown me a rewarding result in my life. Living here in Seattle has made me an open-minded person as an example of the Seattle culture traits that have been adapted by me. However, living here in Seattle for the past couple of years had taught me on how to value people from other culture, how hard work will show result, and how to make friend with foreign people.
In the article “Passport to Knowledge,” the author writes that studying abroad changes a person into someone new (Gaines 40). But how much can a student learn from completing a college degree from another continent instead of staying at home in the United States? After all, the idea of study abroad seems so wonderfully terrifying to most any college student. Many emerging adults are mentally burdened by a burning desire to explore and travel, but there is almost always more behind the desire than just seeing what there is to see around the world. It is important for students to study abroad at least one year of their college experience in order to grow and change into open minded people. Studying abroad gives students a better worldview, engages them in creative problem solving, and allows them to develop a better sense of self. Students’ lives are changed by their experiences, and definitely for the better.
in the course of our lives we will always have ups and downs, who have taught us many lessons, lessons are what shape us as people, helps us understand why things happen and give meaning to our lives.
