My future academic goals for junior high is to promote as a CJSF member and to earn a GPA of a 3.5 or above. During my two years of Washington I want to remain in the AVID program. AVID has helped me in many different ways, for example it has showed me how to keep organized, take Cornell notes, be responsible, and how to strive for my goals. As a high school student I want to maintain a GPA of a 3.5 or higher as well. For my four years in high school, I would like to also be an AVID member. As I graduate from high school, I would like to graduate as an honor student. After high school, I would like to attend the Colorado State University. In the University of Colorado
The expectation that I hold for myself in life is success. I have many goals I wish to achieve in my future; however, the only obstacle in my way is hard work and myself. Of my many ambitions there are still many out of my reach, but of the ones achievable without too many years passing are the issues I’m considering and preparing for already. More than anything, I wish to graduate as Valedictorian of my class, be accepted into a college with a free-ride, and when I move to my new school for senior year I will still try to follow my dreams no matter the challenge. After high school, I plan to attend several challenging colleges some ideas are UT Martin or Vanderbilt. This education will allow me to live my life as I wish; with a high paying

Attending Edmonds Community College for the last two years of my high school career was liberating. The Running Start program enabled me to take control over my education and I was eager to jump headfirst into the college environment. At the college I was able to learn at a quicker pace, relying less on others and more on my own abilities. My academic success became entirely dependent on my eagerness to learn and willingness to work hard. As a full-time Running Start student, I was able to hand-select courses that both challenged me and pertained to my academic interests. Unlike my high school, the community college offered a variety of course subjects, enabling me to cast a wider net into the academic pool.

After the first semester of freshman year at Bentley University, students take a Career Development Seminar, which begins by taking a survey about strengths. Out of 34 strengths, the test lists the top 5 strengths for each person. Bentley students typically share the same type of strengths, such as Analytical, Focus, Maximizer, Strategic, and Woo. However, when I received my results, I felt like the elephant in the room. While most people received Competitive and Achiever as their top two strengths, mine came back as Relator and Empathy. As awkward as it was to explain to my teacher that my results were atypical, this moment lit a light bulb inside of my head. During my first semester, I struggled with my business courses, and none of the material seemed to pique my interest. At first, I wrote this off as a transition period and a time where I just needed to adjust to the college lifestyle while away from home and on my own. As time went on, this idea began to turn into serious doubt about whether the corporate business world was for me. The only problem was that Bentley is known for its business programs; in fact, out of 24 majors
With my large service background, I hadn't done any community service since this past summer with the STEP Program. Coincidently, earlier this semester I unintentionally enrolled into a community based service class. I then would have to select a nonprofit organization to do fifteen hours of service and later create a service project. Reviewing the organizations I had to choose between, I was not overly enthused as none of the organizations called out to me and I would have to do a lot of work with them. My choices narrowed because of my schedule, availability, locations, and other various conditions. Having to determine which service cause was the lesser of the two evils based off of my personal interests. I found myself choosing to work with

Our college-counseling program is designed to help students explore their strengths, talents, abilities and interests, then identify the right colleges and universities that best match student’s choice and abilities, and, ultimately, gain admission to the colleges and universities that best suit their ambitions and aspirations.

Strength-based advising is an approach used to identify strengths that students have, and apply those strength to formulate short and long-term college and career goals. Strength-based advising allows the student to focus more on their skills and abilities that can help them progress, rather than dwell on past weaknesses that they may have encountered. This advising approach is a new adaptation to higher education advising and is similar to strength-based approaches used in social work, business, and psychology. (Schreiner & Anderson, 2005)
Being more than two years in the United States has never stopped giving me challenges on the way I undertook to achieve my academic dream. With my efforts alone, I acknowledged that it cannot afford to lead me to my dream college, due to the shortage of time that I got acquainted with the new educational system. Fortunately, my friend recommended to me a program that assists and prepares students in the journey of approaching to colleges, Reality Changers.
Post-secondary and graduate educations are attainable goals with selected people experiencing the barrier of affordability. Certain individuals come from affluent families and money is not an obstacle to higher education. Others have opportunities to secure funds due to athletic or academic excellence with grants and scholarships.

Most importantly I have known what I have wanted to do with my life since I have been fifteen. I also have many weaknesses that I need to work on to help me through college. These would include verbal and writing confidence, abstract thinking, and tolerating others opinions. I need to work on my confidence in speaking and writing, by improving my confidence I will have better written papers which will help me get good grades in class. By improving my speaking confidence I will be able to get a better job or a better chance at a job by being confident in an interview.

Tolerating other people’s opinions or being more understanding of them, I will not only do better
