I consider science as my playground where I question nature’s rules and break them to witness phenomena. The possibilities that science can offer and what scientists can conduct keeps my curiosity active in learning how I can be part of the science community. When I was informed that my mother was diagnosed with Hepatitis C, I struggled to support her emotionally and felt unknowledgeable about the disease and her treatment. To understand my mother’s treatment and how she healed, I challenged myself to excel in every AP science course my high school offered to learn the foundation of science. Throughout my science courses, I drowned many times because the concepts were demanding. However, my passion for science and my mother’s condition kept me striving on. After various science classes, I felt passion was not enough and wanted to expand my abilities in a health environment. This led me to volunteer at an
My transition into high school was as easy as taking a breath. I had always found school quiet easy and I never had to put much effort into getting promising grades. Before high school I had my whole life figured out, or at least I thought I did. I had planned that I would attend a law school or major in English. After a while of being in high school I started to realize many things. My parents did not have the financial stability to send me to a law school, I was not as smart as all the other kids, little by little I began struggling with a negative mentality about myself and my future. I slowly let go of my dream of becoming a lawyer and decided to join the Health Careers Academy. Soon enough, I began to have a deep interest in the medical field but then again I continued to have the same question; how can I afford going to a medical school? I did not know much about college or what it took to get into college. I assumed I just had to have a pretty transcript and that was all it took. My self confidence began to lower as I saw how other students cruised through their high school years so effortlessly. I never wanted to ask for help because I did not want to seem “dumb”. I would bite my tongue and hold in all the unanswered questions I had. My junior year, I was having a very difficult time. I had a tight schedule which consisted of almost all AP or honors courses. I slowly began to give up because I did not believe that I could do it. I let my grades slip failing almost
Major changes in my life have affected my high school career, but a large impact came from the death of my father in eighth grade. Before his passing, I was an average A/B student in middle school and even elementary school, which quickly changed in 8th grade when my classes became too hard for me to handle. I decided the best thing for my mental health was to drop out of my higher level classes. This lead to being in standard classes throughout my first year of high school with minimal effort from my part. After constantly missing school, I failed my second quarter. Instead of bouncing back from this, it pushed me down, making me believe I would never be able to recover. Without any motivation, I ended my ninth grade year with a grade point average of 1.4.
Growing up, I’d always been expected to do well in school. Which isn’t out of the ordinary, every parent wants their child to be successful and have a beneficial career. So, since good grades were what my parents expected that’s what I got. All throughout elementary, I strived to do my absolute best in every subject. At my sixth grade graduation I was awarded the Presidential Award for Academic Achievement, in my junior high years I did well as well. My eighth-grade year I achieved my goal of obtaining a 4.0 G.p.a. The first year of high school was nerve-racking but I still managed to keep my grades up. However, Sophomore year was definitely a bump in the road for me. In all my ten years of being in school (including head start and kindergarten)
Ever since I was younger, science has captivated my interest and has molded me into the person I am today. When the rain would come crashing down on my elementary
Ever since I was a child, I have loved science. I learned at a young age to always keep asking questions and to never settle with just simply not knowing something. The thought of how everything works on a molecular level never ceases to fascinate me. I have other interests spanning multiple fields, but none can compare to my love of science. I quite enjoy being in the labs and getting to do experiments to uncover answers that were otherwise unknown to me. It is that curiosity and interest that keeps my fascination towards the realm of science strong.
I would like to be in Honors Science because I am ready to take on the challenge, my passion for science and the natural world has grown and I am a self motivated learner that is always willing to learn new material. Honors Science would give me the opportunity to do each and every one of those things as well as challenging me with more complex things. My passion for science has grown and as well as my curiosity for the natural world. Science is made up of so many different attributes and topics which makes it so interesting to learn about. This year especially, I have learned about chemistry and what it is, DNA and what it is made out of, and waves and technology and what it does to help our world.
Science seems to have always been interesting, just not in a classroom. School science classes bored me. To me, it was just memorizing vocabulary. It was always science outside of school that excited me. I remember as a child I would spend Saturday afternoon parked in front of the basement T.V., my eyes glued to the screen during the Discovery channels Mythbuster marathons. I loved watching the Mythbusters use science to solve problems to do tasks. Even if, that task was often causing something to go catastrophically wrong. Mythbusters made me take notice of the everyday things around me that, in all actuality, were super complex. This curiosity extended beyond those T.V. Saturdays. Soon enough I was playing in the backyard trying to make potions
For the duration of time amidst graduation and resuming my education I chose to instead take the time to better myself by means of coping with the hand I’d been dealt. High school was discouraging to say the least. Academically I was a failure, which was frustrating for everyone concerned, since it wasn’t a question of my intelligence, but my lack of motivation. Fortunately, I had a large support system, without which I wouldn’t have graduated, however, this support system was unconventional, including my dad and most of the faculty at Golden High School, which left me somewhat isolated from my peers. I struggled relating to most of my fellow classmates on a deeper than superficial level, which left me with only a few genuine relationships
I am seeking admission to the Master of Science in Nursing program at William Carey University for this fall. I earned my associate degree in nursing in 2012 at Southwest Mississippi Community College. I have been four years of work experience as a nurse. I currently employed at Forrest General Hospital in Hattiesburg as a Rehab nurse. I recently return to school last year in order to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing from William Carey and plan to further my education here.
Even in my childhood I was always fascinated by how the world works. Science has never failed to amaze me. Throughout my academic years I have always had an aptitude for learning the immense vocabulary and information required for science courses. They have been a strong suit of mine throughout my school years.
The transition from the first semester of high school to the second semester marked a significant change in my work ethic. During the first semester, I lacked motivation because of unexpected events during that summer. Eventually, the stress caught up when I received my report card and saw three B’s. Receiving those grades was a warning to work harder. After the first semester, I started to push myself to become more involved in the school. During my freshman year, I competed in band competition in Florida, sang a chorus solo, and performed many concerts around the Durham area. Becoming more involved with my activities was a life changing decision for me due to the fact that I figured out how to stay motivated.
As I continued through grade school, something about biology, chemistry, and human anatomy intrigued me. Oftentimes, I would find myself researching cancer and other diseases out of curiosity, just thirsty for more information. My curiosity motivated me to want to learn how one little
As a young child, my science courses were my favorite. Having gone to a Magnet school, I remember the excitement I had participating in science fairs and conducting experiments with other students. As an inquisitive child, wanting to know how things happened and how they worked just seemed natural. I vividly remember going to the pond behind my school with a net to look at the different organisms in the pond. When I finally got to high school,
Science has and always will play a constant important role in my daily life, maybe more so than others. Science for me has not always been my strong subject in school and I very easily tend to get intimidated. But when I look at my daily life and realize how much science plays a role in it, I cannot help but smile. Science is not at all bad, it has allowed me to do many things every day, even if I do not take the time to stop and think about it, it is there. From the way the microwave heats up the water for my coffee every morning or the way my body digests the food I eat every meal and makes
