It was the first time that I had experienced life by myself. I did very well my first semester at Jackson State, but I was very homesick and wanted to come home. I transferred to The University of Southern Mississippi in Spring 2001. I was back home with my grandparents but the young college life seemed more interesting than going to class at that time.
Morphew. She was a great teacher and she taught me so many new things throughout that year but it was not the same without Mr. Lemons. I grew very close to Ms. Morphew in that short year and as I was ready to start out my senior year with her, she had breaking news. She got a job offer back at her hometown that she could not pass up. I was heartbroken again but I understood that she needed that job close to her home.
Known to all as the foundation upon which we stand, the helping hands and guiding leaders of our global society are both the world’s tools for progression towards unconditional happiness. Kindled by religious enthusiasts and community leaders, these aspects of support and guidance are embedded in families, societies, and the future generations. Service and leadership make up the thread of our society. In homes, both parents and children can serve and lead. In the public aspect, advocates of religion, advisors in community service or social mediators for peace all have the ability to support and guide the neighborhood.
Wanting to cry, waiting for someone to say the first word. Each of us had learned something that trip. For me, this experience had taught me what gratefulness was, the impact a good attitude has, what a servant looks like, and really how the relationships we make with our life is the most important aspect about life. It was the summer after my freshmen year of high school. Earlier in the year my parents had decided that they wanted to go on a mission trip as a family
I feel more confident being a future office manager by knowing this guideline. Even though almost 300 employees got laid off the last couple months due to new regulation change of Affordable Care Act, Ms. Seidelberg wants to have me back for 2014 HEDIS season. I didn’t expect to get a job out of this internship but this is a good opportunity for me to build more working experience in health care field. Approaching to graduation, I am ready to use the knowledge from school and the skills that I learned during my internship to continue working and building more experience. I am motivated to come back to Denver Health!
After spending a week volunteering at a middle school I had an epiphany and was finally clear on what my true career path should be. I began school in August 2000; I was so excited because I was finally on the path to becoming a nurse and making a great deal of money to support myself and my daughter. My college career started later than I anticipated because I conceived my daughter and had to stay home and take care of her. I was faced with several obstacles as I was a single mother. I felt very sad and depressed because I felt like
During induction I was chosen as the new 2016-2017 service officer. Volunteering is one of my passions and I couldn’t wait to spread it to other incoming freshmen, and make sure that they didn’t feel the way I felt during my first semester. Ever since high school giving back to the community was something that I loved to do. During the spring 2016 semester I discovered an organization called VOICES, which is dedicated to giving back to the community. This is where I met numerous
Teaching has been my dream profession since I was in eighth grade and has helped motivate me to be my best self ever since then. The summer going into eighth grade my girl scout troop did our silver award project where we created a summer academic curriculum for once homeless preschoolers and kindergarteners, that were currently in transitional housing at Saint Elizabeth lodge, who were behind in school. Every Wednesday that summer I spent two hours teaching and playing with those children and my life has not been the same since. Another reason I want to go into the teaching profession is because of the indescribable feeling when you get to see a child’s eyes light up when they finally achieve and comprehend something you have been teaching them and they have been struggling with. Seeing a child after this moment is exceptionally rewarding, because they are typically extremely happy and proud of themselves and that feeling will help them problem solve, build confidence, and face more difficult challenges in the future.
Even now, at CSU, I had to defer my admission for one semester for an internship at Cleveland Clinic to earn money to pay for my classes. Nevertheless, all of my opportunities and challenges had some kind of positive impact on my education. I hope to continue my education here at CSU and attain a Master's degree in Computer and Information Science. I am applying to the Honors Program here to both stimulate myself with more work and provide me with an opportunity in the form of scholarships. If my past has taught me anything, it's that challenges and opportunities combined offer a great environment for learning and improvement.
The year has flown by and as summer quickly approached I found myself looking at the many study abroad programs that Cal offered. My friends and family highly recommended that I go out and see the world. I had never interned before and I desperately needed something eye catching to put on my resume, so I thought why not work and play. I also met with a counselor to see how I was doing towards graduation requirements.
