I had no experience as a runner nor did I have the form. This did not phase me however. That year I promised myself to push through all the six mile runs, sore legs, gnarly blisters, and at times, lack of oxygen. At every meet and speed workout practice I pushed myself further and further. I set a goal every time I kicked off from the starting line and never let myself get discouraged when I failed. By my senior year, I was the fourth fastest runner on varsity. That year our varsity team won the district meet, which qualified us to run in the 2016 state meet in Oregon. The transformation over the years were evident. My determination to accomplish my goal of becoming a faster runner was complete. If I had simply just given up that first day of practice, I wouldn't have ran along side of the fastest runners in Oregon or have met the multitude of people that are now my closest friends. Having a goal sets one up for a challenge, whether it being physically or mentally, goals keep us active and thinking in more ways than one. Still, if someone has self-control, confidence, and a goal, they are still not complete.
When I first joined cross country I was not fast nor a runner. I was one of the slowest people on the team, but I wanted to get faster and I was determined to improve. Some days we would do a hills workout and I would get to the top of the longest hill and think, “I could just run back to Armstrong right now and be done”. But then, I thought about how if I did another hill, I would get better and some time during a race when there was a big hill I would look at it like it’s nothing. I could go up the hill easily and pass a couple girls. So I would do another hill. Then the next time we did hills I rememberd how many I did the last time and pushed myself to do one more. Through that cross country showed me that I could be faster and tougher than I thought I was if I put in the effort and want it

I believe each and every student is capable of learning and achieving academic success, however some children require individualized support to ensure their success. A strength I posses that supports high academic expectations for all Houston ISD students is my ability to motivate and empower young children of all types to want to be successful. I am committed to creating a classroom culture where high expectations are set and most importantly constantly communicated to students. I have the ability to lead and differentiate engaging lessons where the diverse learning needs of all students are supported. I am a teacher that believes high academic expectations will be met when lessons are presented in a way that suits all learning styles. I use classroom management strategies to set students up for success.
When I was seven, I had to witness my older brother be kicked out of the house. This was such a traumatizing experience because my older brother was my role model. Additionally, as a young child, my little sister and I were frequently home alone due to my parents always working double shifts. Thus, once my brother left, I had to take on his responsibilities; consequently, I learned how to be a leader at a young age. This experience has allowed me to develop values such as excellence, leadership, truth and service that will contribute to the vision and legacy of Howard University.
Walden University prides itself on helping students accomplish their goals, and providing the necessary resources to succeed. The interconnection between Walden, my colleagues and myself, are all of equal value because one cannot properly function without the other. Therefore, when all three parts are simultaneously collaborating, it creates a harmonious equation for victory. Being able to find out and navigate the resources available through Walden, developing a positive and collaborative relationship with my peers, and being able to excel in an online work environment appropriately is the formula I need to achieve ultimate success.
Financial assistance is needed to help me meet my short and long term educational goals. At this time, Gardner-Webb University is my college choice. Gardner-Webb is a private school that better meets my learning style, as opposed to a larger state university. I feel that this college is the right match for me and will provide better opportunities to get involved and fulfil my spiritual needs as well. My involvement with sports, clubs, and summer camps has prevented me from working part time throughout high school except for the payment I receive for one week of camp during the summer. I also chose to take more challenging classes which required more time for studying. Therefore hindering me from contributing to my educational fund.
I transferred to Arizona State University in the last semester, I felt I had a Fulfilling campus life in the whole fall semester. I love the campus environment and wonderful class atmosphere, the people who are in the campus are enthusiastic. In the beginning, I applied
I never imagined myself transferring, it just wasn’t part of my plan, and habitually when transformation or transitioning occur, I adapt. Usually. As my reserved personality highlights, I’ve never been one to take extraordinary risks or be bold when something isn’t quite right. But during this first year of my college experience, being bold is becoming more substantial to my success.
I am currently a fourth year doctoral student within the the pharmaceutical sciences graduate program at the College of Pharmacy. I have finished the course work and passed the preliminary comprehensive exam. I have also completed an oral pre-defense for my dissertation, in which I presented the first 3 chapters (introduction, literature review, and research methodology) in front of the designated committee members.
In a transitional setting, a university will have instructors who will lecture all semester long and have you complete two tests; one mid-term and a final exam. As well as have a set time and place for the aforementioned lecture to take place. In some universities attendance is not a requirement. They want you to pass the test in the middle and at the end of the year. You could be in a class with as many as two-hundred plus people which makes it almost impossible for the instructor to reach out to students who are having a hard time.
As a former Breakthrough Student, I, too was a high potential, underserved middle school student. It was great having someone, such as a mentor, or my Breakthrough teachers there to guide me on the path to success. It was amazing having someone tell me that I can do all things as long as I put my mind to it. It motivated me to be the best that I can be. I knew in my heart that it was my responsibility to allow myself to be successful because no one could do it for me. While having amazing leadership directing me in the successful path is a amazing, being high potential, but underserved comes with many challenges, unfortunately.
funding, and only those that stay relevant and leverage new digital capabilities will benefit in this digital age. The question for Surrey University right now is in an increasingly competitive Higher Education sector, how they differentiate themselves through new and emerging business models to become a Digital Leader and how this effect what is a traditional university does.
Trinity college has the mission that philosophers like Plato and Aristotle tried to find the ways to reach. Since ancient times philosophers tried to find out, how people and societies could live personally satisfying lives. Both of these great geniuses saw the solution in education. Right education would give the individuals tools to become happy, responsible and useful for their communities. After making my research about the school, I am convinced that the education that Trinity college provides brings the individuals out of the Plato’s cave and lets them see the true light of the real world.
In High school I was a C plus B minus student, which was a substandard grade point average. Due to academic and financial reasons, I was confined to a Junior college. Nevertheless, making that the best decision that was ever made for me.
