The experience of frequent relocations and life changes during my formative years have molded me into a highly determined individual who sees the world from various perspectives and thinks out of the box. Throughout my childhood, there was always a quiet sense of not only excitement about restarting somewhere new, but also anticipation of how things would be different. Which side is the “right” side of the road? Metric system or British system? 110 Volt plug or 220 Volt plug? These thoughts that seem to be miniscule opened my young mind in accepting, and later, finding new ways of doing things. Meanwhile, the anticipation of a new school system that can be surprisingly way more demanding (or not) than what I had been through always motivated me to work hard and do the best I could academically. Hailing from my native country Indonesia to the United States at the age of 15 in a quest for a better quality education, I was determined to gain as much education and experiences while striving to overcome any challenges that comes with it. In high school, not only I overcame language and cultural barriers, but I pushed myself through the demanding private school academics and graduated at the top of my class. My interests in business and technology led my decision to attend Drexel University and pursue a Bachelor degree in Business and Engineering. Through the Business and Engineering program, I realized that while the worlds of technology and business integrates more than ever.

People feed off of other people. The Ohio State Business Honors Learning Community is a fantastic opportunity to surround myself with other excelling business majors. First of all, I will be able to provide a broad set of interests from theatre, to music, to sports, and to discussion. My diverse background will allow me to reach out to many members of the community both on the business level and the personal level. Along with my broad set of interests, I can bring an up and coming major, (Information Systems,) into the community. With Big Data on the rise, Information Systems has become one of the fastest growing majors in the world. Students with these majors are often the connecting points between management level and IT level. Understanding
After some time, these facts began to sink in. I would no longer wake up and walk into the same bathroom, walk down the same stairs, or eat in the same kitchen. I would no longer take the same walking route to school along with my friends. I would no longer have the same lasting neighborhood friends to socialize with. I would no longer take the same classes in school, talk to the same teachers, or even take notes the same way. However, I did not realize some of the other, not as despondent, impacts that changing environments would have until being ?new? for a few
As technology evolves and the price of higher education increases, alternatives to College are considered. Some people don’t believe a college education is necessary to be successful. Instead, they decide to go into business for themselves, using the skills and crafts that they 've developed on their own time to become entrepreneurs. In this day and age, it is easier than ever to learn from the comfort of ones home and actually get a degree in something with a high pay out, such as a real estate license or accounting degrees. But what social skills will be gained from sitting in pajamas on the couch? In college, you not only finish with a degree, you get real world experience. College is necessary for success and survival.
Moving far away from family and friends can be tough on a child at a young age. It has its pros and cons. One learns how to deal with moving away from the people they love and also learn how to deal with adjusting to new ways of life. Everything seems so different and at a young age one feels like they have just left the whole world behind them. That was an experience that changed my life as a person. It taught me how to deal with change and how to adjust. It developed me from a young boy into a mature young man.
When humans reflect on their lives they often categorize things by their location at the time of the event, grouping their college experience separately from their hometown high school experiences. This association with place causes us to view an unwanted movement as an attack on our personal way of living. I first experienced such an affront when I was in the first grade, my family and I moved to a small town about three hours away from San Angelo. My father wanted to be closer to his aunt and uncle so he seemingly forced me and to tag along for the experience. I didn’t want to move away from my grandparents or my friends, the thought alone would cause me to cry. I had to leave behind all my friends, my family I
To conclude, Miami Dade College offers innumerable opportunities, not only to its valued students, but also to its employees. Miami Dade College is a family of change makers and enthusiasts who always aim for greatness. Miami Dade has been the catalyst in my synthesis as a competitive student who refuses to stand still and watch innovation from a distance. This school has taught me to embrace change and adapt to quickly changing situations, since that is what constitutes life. My life has been a chain of events that lead to bigger events, and my stay in the college has been the biggest event that culminated in the fusion of a hardworking, perseverant, competitive, indebted young person with the right tools to flourish. I’m successful because
I wish to attend Texas A&M because the academics and atmosphere promise superlative growth for me during my college education. Because I intend to pursue a career in business, I see the Mays School of Business as the epitome of education. Focused on a business environment that is full of constant change and evolving technical resources, Texas A&M would give me the confidence that I am receiving the most forward-focused business education. Texas A&M provides an atmosphere that would allow my personality to thrive. The campus spirit brings a sense of community and belonging. While walking on campus during visits, I recognize a warm, joyful and welcoming atmosphere that I could call home. The robust loyalty to the University and fellow
Throughout my entire life, I have always been one to constantly push myself and pursue new challenges. In high school, I excelled academically while also being a three-sport athlete, a member of the National Honor Society, and held an active presence in my community. In the classroom, for as long as I can remember, I’ve been intellectually curious and fascinated with solving problems through quantitative reasoning. The desire to continue my education in a quantitative field and gain important soft skills, while also boasting the ability to be involved in many extracurriculars led me to pursue a degree in economics from DePauw University. In a constantly changing industry such as finance, it is imperative that one is able to adapt quickly and think outside of the box, and DePauw has prepared me to do just that. I
In general, the previous schools that I had attended were rather conservative in the sense that there is a lesser degree in the freedom to flourish in distinct fields of study. Therefore, I crave in expanding my abilities in different fields and in different places. I decided to turn to American education to challenge this stereotype. Attending Lewis & Clark College would allow the broadening of my perception in both academia and profession-wise. I see Lewis & Clark as the fertile grassland that can assist my pursuit for knowledge as it provides a large diversity of programs and working relationships with multiple companies. Ultimately, Lewis & Clark College serves as a springboard for me to achieve a higher ground throughout my career path. The opportunities provided in Lewis & Clark College could potentially elicit the inner potentials of myself to develop in the society and better represent myself as a successful candid from the
Many recent college graduates have faced record levels of unemployment. This situation has lead people to question what they value about higher education. Some high school students and their parents are wondering if a college education is worth the cost. Others, however, believe that a college prepares students for more than just a job or career. Many people then present the counter argument that people like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg did not have a college degree, but unlike them most people are not geniuses and do not have the same entrepreneurial opportunities available to them, let alone the innovative ideas and proper timing. A college education is worth the cost because it is a requirement for many jobs, college graduates make substantially more than high school graduates, and college provides more opportunities for personal growth and networking.
Ines Hernandez-Avila’s article, “Relocations upon Relocations: Home, Language, and Native American Women’s Writings” argues that Native American women are negotiating their own terms as they attempt to reestablish their cultural identities. Native American women often overcome abuse, alcoholism, rape and other atrocities, serving as important topics discussed in their poetry. Another argument addressed in the article states that the concepts of home and community are fluid for many Native American poets. Because of Native American enslavement and exile, many poets discuss how their ancestors consider their homes to be wherever they can gather and share their common experiences and language. The final argument made in the article examines how relocation, particularly the policies that sent Native Americans away
While reading Too Cool for School by Ellis Cose I have became aware of various aspects of my ‘schooling’ experience. I realized that I may not have had the best schooling experience, but I never pushed up against the system to get any better. Throughout my life I have attended over 10 schools some very high end others bottom of the barrel. Like Cose, I always knew my intellectual abilities, but I was always so dissatisfied with my situation I didn't make the best of it. Instead of soaking up as much knowledge as possible and making a lesson out of my situation I became complacent. I started to slack off and allow myself to become stagnant to what I knew my abilities were. I allowed myself to be a product of my environment when I should I have
“Why do you want to transfer to the Dyson School? You’re already in a good program.” For the past few weeks, my friends kept asking that exact question. While they may struggle to fully comprehend my fervent admiration for the applied economic and management (AEM) program, my answer has always been simple. Walking through a buzzing Warren Hall on a brisk January morning, I could envision my entire future ahead of me. The rigorous yet diverse core requirements allowing me to focus on my passion for sustainable entrepreneurship and finance while simultaneously helping me discover new ones in the field of business; the applied curriculum emboldening me to seek innovative and tangible solutions to solve the world's most complex business issues;
Young, ambitious women from all over the country participated in this program, full of innovative classes and discussions about business, which were lead by Kelley professors. The experience on IU’s campus was unforgettable and is one of the main reasons I hope to attend IU. If admitted into IU, I hope to receive direct admission into Kelley School of Business and double-major in Business and International Relations, and minor in Spanish. I plan on studying abroad and continuing studying foreign languages to increase my understanding of international cultures. I value Kelley’s method of education that forces its students to be eclectic through its innovative I-Core program that focuses on four different perspectives of business: Finance, Management, Marketing, and Operations. One of my goals while on campus is to live in the Kelley Living Learning Center so I can meet with people with similar passions for business, as well as learn to network amongst my peers. My main academic goals at IU would be to enroll in the Hutton Honors College, Kelley Honors programs, and Kelley’s Women in Business program. As a woman, I understand that power isn’t given to you, you must work for it, and Kelley embodies
When I think about an event that sticks out in my mind as one that was very important in my life, I think about changing schools in the seventh grade. About halfway through my middle school career, I became very unhappy at my school and with life in general. Upon discussing with my parents, we made the decision that I would switch schools and embark on a new journey in hopes to appease my unhappy soul. At first, I felt as if a new school would not help; little did I know what a profound change it would have on my life.
