I have recently learned that good friend of mine is currently in the program and has told me that the content you receive from the program is very applicable to the work that we are doing now. Personally the time frame has also greatly influenced my decision as well. I am a very hard worker and if you review both of my college histories you will see that I don’t like to take too long through school as I know I am meant to do great things, to help so many families. I know with the superb education from Saint Joseph 's University I will be an extremely effective and able person.
With the help of the professors and counselors I know I could excel in this great program for talented and gifted students. I wish to attend the rouse program to not only excel academically, but individually as well.... ... middle of paper ... ...rther our education. As next year approaches, I worry that the financial load will only get heavier as my brother and I start college. I believe that with this scholarship I will have the ability to study freely without financial restraints holding me back. With the support of my family and hopefully the Rouse Program through this scholarship, I plan to reach my academic goals and get the education that I treasure so much.
The skills that I have earned through my work with and for others relate directly to those required to be a successful leader. Like volunteerism, leadership, the subject of my second goal, is also something I hold close to my heart. I am fond of leadership because of my experience with the empowering feeling that being a leader provides. Such opportunities to lead have pushed me to become a proponent of the development of leadership skills among youth through additional volunteerism with... ... middle of paper ... ...ting because opportunities capitulate more opportunities and challenges are simply opportunities to grow! With this in mind, I face college with a confident demeanor, and I prepare to learn new things and achieve success in a world that I have yet to experience, but cannot wait to do so.
This world declares that the strong will advance and be successes and the weak will fall behind the rest and have to live with whatever they happen to receive. One thing that the strong have in common is that they are educated and this education adds to their persona of being the leaders of today. I hope to be a strong leader someday just as my idols have, and if I am to do this I must get my education and succeed in school before I battle the real world. One way I can get on track to becoming a member of the strong after I graduate is to take part in dual credit courses. The choice to take dual credit courses was not something I always thought about doing, but rather something I realized was necessary after I was influenced by my friends, my family, and myself to be beneficial in my quest to gain success in this world.
I am aware that character is an important part of being in NHS and I believe my personality and character make me an exceptional addition to the group. To be inducted into National Honor Society would not only be an honor, but a way for me to assume more responsibility in my school and community. I have been in National Junior Honor Society before and I hope to continue on the same path. I, along with many other students, have held to the theory of survival of the fittest. I fought long and hard to get to where I currently am and I hope to continue on the same path.
Although it’s easy as it sounds, it needs a graduate degree to get there, and the studies are intense. When I was a kid, I’ve witnessed experts who work with patients one-on-one, and I saw them progress through treatment. It just caught my attention that these physical therapists really are making a difference in their patient’s lives. I consider this career as my ideal job, for it can fulfill my wanting to help others get moving and continue with their life once again. Janet Rosenbaum points out that “A four-year college degree has long been an aspiration for the nation’s highest-achieving students.
I am privileged to call several of these professors mentors. These mentors have given me valuable insight into how to achieve my goals, and I have modeled my academic career after their own prestigious achievements and accomplishments. They have helped me to develop a plan for my future that will enable me to overcome any obstacles that I may come across while striving for degree. It has been my pleasure to know and learn from each and every one of them as they have made me a better student, and a respectable person in my
1. I chose to do advanced standing as I am mentally and emotionally prepared to further my education during a time that will provide me with the most success. So far, I have been very proud of my grades in the social work undergraduate program. It takes a lot of determination and skills and to get through school and be successful. I feel that I have what it takes to continue my education and continue on the path of success.
I would be grateful if I am accorded the privilege to pursue my graduation in your university. I understand that I have to put in painstaking hard work and compete with the best in the world to reach my goal. But I am mentally and physically prepared for it or to say, I am prepared to go an “extra mile” both figuratively and literally. In Conclusion I believe in the saying “The greatest pride is to grow in your own eyes, the greatest set back to fall in your own eyes.” I would like to grow in my eyes by realizing my goals with the great knowledge that your university is going to contribute to me. I hope that my aspirations would become a reality.
For this reason I am applying for the Masters in Public Administration at Baruch College. I am excited about continuing my academic career at Baruch. But, I am especially excited about working with educators like Peter Hall, Stan Altman, James Krauskopt, and Michael Seltzer. Their knowledge and experience in non-profit will prepare me for furthering my career. In addition, I am truly inspired by the mission statement of Baruch College.
