My current focus is entering the Respiratory Care program at Northeast Iowa Community College. A college degree will assist in ensuring that one day I can be an adult capable of facing adversity, capable of giving back to the community, and capable of being an example to others as my parents are to me. I do not expect the college experience to miraculously transform me into a knowledgeable adult. However, I am relying on it to help me grow, mature and learn.

I became part of the AVID program in eighth grade, I had no clue what the program was about; most of the time we worked on subjects that we needed help on, learned how to be organized, and practiced public speaking by having small socratic seminars. In a way, the tactics that my eighth grade AVID teacher taught me helped me become successful for my college preparation it helped improve my grades in the classes that I was struggling in and pushed me to take challenging courses. In my sophomore, junior, and senior year of high school, I spent my time reviewing different schools around the state and out-of-the state browsing through the financial aid assistance, majors and minors, location, and diversity to choose from. Junior year was the best
I would love to attend Wake STEM Early College High School because I believe it will give me a head start on my learning after the high school level.

Adults and peers have described me as dependable, fair, honest, trustworthy, intelligent, empathetic, respectful, and friendly and I do my best to live by these characteristics. One of my main mottos is to treat others the way you want to be treated. I am by no means a perfect person and I try to accept help and criticism whenever it is offered in an effort to keep improving upon my character. I am a reliable student, sister, daughter, and friend. I believe I would learn a lot from being a member of this program because being surrounded by peers with similar moral and academic character would allow me to do even more to make my community a better place. This would be a perfect opportunity to benefit from any experiences this program has to offer me and make a positive impact on my school and

1- What appeals to me about the AVID program is that the program prepares you for high school/college. Also, how the program teaches you new strategies that you can use in school and it helps you develop a sense of hope for personal achievement gained through hard work and determination. This was my first year in AVID and I gained a lot of new ways to make learning easier in school. Such as cornell notes, PVLEGS, and how to stay organized throughout the school year. I want to continue AVID because it’s really a fun and it is a very educational program to be in. I met new friends there and it helped me not fall off the wagon in school by getting good grades.
Hello, I am Anahi Ceballos-Tapia and I am currently 13 years old. When I’ve first heard about the AVID program, I was very skeptical about what this program benefits. After asking which program would suit me the best for my future education, I’ve chosen to participate in this particular program. I feel that I have the skills and determination to have this course in Everett Alvarez High School. Therefore, I would like to be enrolled in AVID for various reasons. My foremost reason on why I want to be enrolled in AVID program is considering that it will help me tremendously on my academics in school, which would apply to helping me learn how to be successful all the way through college. Secondly, I would like to be in AVID since this class can
The first reason I feel that I am a deserving candidate for this program is that I enjoy taking on new challenges and tasks. I feel this program would be enjoyable for me, getting to explore new places such as colleges and learning about the iBelieve program. I
I became distracted and I ended up not performing as great as I hoped due to not taking my grades seriously. I had a low quality work ethic, and was not very organized or motivated. I also felt cluttered when it came to making my own decisions, such as having to realize that school is a huge priority in terms of my future career goals. Transitioning into my sophomore year, I realized I need to be more responsible and be a self-advocate if I wanted to succeed. I applied to two programs that I knew would help me balance out the difficulties I faced freshman year. AVID was the first program I joined which helped me learn to stay organized. I eventually applied to College Possible, which provided a very strong support system when it came to ACT preparation and applying to college. Each program also provided a coach who pushed us to go beyond our abilities in order to become self-sufficient beyond our high school
The academic middle, as defined by AVID, are students whose GPA is 2.0-3.5 and are proficient on Standard Tests for ELA and Math. In addition to serving the academic middle, the AVID program also aims to close the achievement gap among predominantly minority and low-income students without a family history of college attendance (Galindo, Green, Kupczynski, & Mundy, 2013). AVID’s college readiness design is to increase the number of students who enroll in four-year colleges and universities through the AVID support system, which includes the AVID elective. At the secondary or high school level, AVID students are also enrolled in rigorous courses such as Advanced Placement® (AP).
The things I know for certain in life are that I want to go into neurological research, I want to get into a decent medical school and that I have no idea what medical school will entail. All I know is that it is brutal and will give me a lot of debt. I am hoping that Alpha Epsilon Delta will help me broaden my horizons when it comes to medical school. I want to learn the process of acceptance and the financial aids that are offered to me. I hope to learn how hard it is to get accepted and when I should start studying for the MCAT. I am hoping that a membership with AED will aid me in my journey towards medical school.
The reason I am interested in this program is because I want to have real experiences. I no longer want to look at life through a computer screen. I want to be the one researching and challenging myself in every possible way. I am a very open-minded and ambitious person. I am prepared to tackle any task that comes my way. I have little outdoor experience, but I want nothing more than to learn. Adventures are the best way of learning so this position was naturally appealing to me. This program will give me the opportunity to apply what I learned in class to the real world and allow me to escape the ordinary. I am a freshman in college with a massive desire for learning. I wish to leave my own trail and be the ripple in a wave that will produce
