I have a lot of goals for my life, but since I’m in high school right now, so my priority goal should be my high school goal. My high school goal is very important, my college goals or even my life goals depend on it. My high school goal is to get a GPA of 4.5 or above in senior year. However, I found that I’m doing a pretty good job on approaching to my high school goal, which is surprising to myself. I have got all my classes except for AVID to an A, my AVID grade is a B, which got me a GPA of 4.00, which is not bad for a freshman at all, but of course I expect better. Also I’ve studied hard before every single test and quiz, that make sure I won’t do bad on it and will get most of the points on the test or quiz, so my grades will be stable,
I can reach my goals and dreams through discipline. There are many goals that I intend to fulfill. At the end of my senior year I hope to have achieved a 3.75 grade point average. If I successfully obtain a 3.75, it will ultimately make it much easier for me to get into college and further my career. I also want to obtain this just because I do not set many difficult goals for myself, so when I do, I feel that I must complete the goal successfully. I have always had the goal of becoming a Wildcat at the University of Kentucky. Nearly my entire family (on my father's side) has at some point attended the university, therefore, feel that I must attend the university as well.
I was told that this, my junior year, would be the easiest year of my high school career. And no, they were absolutely wrong. It was not just school and grades that I was concern about either. I had other things to worry about, things like, driving, clubs, friends and family. I however had no idea that it would be this difficult. Throughout this school year I have learned many things; like the value of sleep, whose really your friend, and that although very important, grades are not everything.
In my household, from the time I was in Kindergarten, my mother expected academic excellence and nothing less. With her help I was an A student, Science fair grand champion, Young authors winner, Community helpers member, Young academic role model and more. At the age of eleven I lost my mother to Invasive Breast Cancer. Being academically successful was her goal for me and up to that point in her life she instilled the values of education and hard work ethic into me. At that young age I had to decide how I was going to continue being academically successful in school and what were my educational goals for myself. Since that day every school year I ask myself that same question,and this year being my senior year it’s more prominent than ever. My short term educational goals are: to apply and be admitted to 4 universities, maintain a 3.7 gpa, pass AP calc and English exam’s with a score of 4 or higher, and graduate with honors.
Goals give you something to measure yourself against and give you direction. Currently, my main goal is to graduate from East Carolina University with a bachelor’s degree of science in engineering with a concentration in biomedical engineering. My anticipated time to graduation is five years with a GPA of 3.5 or higher. Beyond getting my bachelor’s degree at East Carolina University, I would like to go to medical school and become a doctor focusing on prosthetics. In order to make my goals a reality, I will have to work diligently to remain on track throughout my schooling. Additional goals that I have set for myself are to complete homework assignments by the time they are due, reading assigned material before it is discussed in class, doing well in each of my courses this semester, successfully participating in extracurricular activities, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in engineering, getting a position as an engineer, and becoming a leader within both the engineering community and the general community. A world-class engineering student woul...
High school is a very important time in a persons life. This is the time to set goals. We not only set goals, but set out to find solutions. My first goal in no particular order is to become a good athlete. My next goal is to be a good student and graduate high school, with a 3.0 GPA. There's a last goal, but I am saving it for later. My goals are simple, but not as easy to accomplish.
We had all just got back from Des Moines. Alivia, Lexi, Brianna, and I wore sitting on her bed. Our faces lit up with blue because we were on our phones. It was really late I think maybe eleven o’clock. When I glance up and watch the bathroom door creep closed. I freaked out about it trying to scare everyone else. Alivia basically sits on me. Pulling a mound of blankets over our heads. Everyone is screaming and Brianna’s mom, Keri, runs into her room. Then the door opens slightly and that’s when I actually panic. I cling to Alivia and yelling, “Did you see that?” Keri looks very concerned about us and has fear in her own eyes as she jumps into bed with us. We all don’t know what to do. All of us are telling Keri to go look while we hide under the blankets. My mind is racing I personally don’t want to go check because what if there’s a killer in the bathroom. All I can think is I’m too young die.

College is the main goal of my life. It is a life dream to go to college to get a degree and get a successful job. Everything that I have done until this point is to get to college. During my senior year I plan to apply to many colleges and to take the SAT's to get into college. My GPA and SAT scores will be crucial for me to get into college. With college I will further my business career, making more successful in the field I enjoy doing.
Something that I have always been extremely passionate about is sports. My freshman and sophomore year of highschool I played four varsity sports, volleyball, basketball, golf, and softball. After my sophomore I decided to get a job as a lifeguard and work full time in the summer rather than continuing my softball career. For the remaining of high school I continued to play volleyball, basketball, and golf, all of which I love. Without athletics I am not positive I would be the student I am today, sports keep me healthy and on top of my grades and schoolwork.
Seventeen years ago in 1998 I was born in El Paso, Texas to wonderful parents, Rafael and Rosa Isela Nevarez. For the following ten years, until 2008 we lived in a small house in San Elizario, Texas which was not ours. Two years and eight months after I was born, my sister Abby was born. When I turned five my younger sister, Ivonne was born by this time I was already in Kinder. My first challenge was in second grade at Alfonzo Borrego Sr. Elementary School. Especially because the teachers had told me that I was a slow learner, and they would have to lower me a grade level, as a consequence I would not go further than third grade . According to the teachers they had to administer a test to conclude where they had to place me, however, my mom defended me and
Ever since I was little, I have always had very high career goals for myself. My short-term goal was to work hard throughout high school in order to be accepted to a university, which I accomplished by graduating with a 4.0 grade point average. My next step was to do well my freshman year of college at Eastern Michigan University in order to be accepted into their nursing program that is very competitive. I finished my first year of college with a 4.0 grade point average and was accepted into the nursing program. Now that I am in the program, my goal is to continue to do well in my studies by focusing on my courses and spending as much times as possible studying. I ended my first semester of nursing school with all As and one A- giving me an accumulative GPA of 3.98. I would like to graduate at the top of my nursing class, and I believe this is an achievable goal because I am a very driven and hard working person. When I want to achieve something I will do whatever it takes to do so.
My circumstances of leaving UIC was due to financial issues. My financial aid was revoked during my sophomore year of college at UIC due to SAP. I was not very focused on my school work during my freshman and sophomore year of college; having to work 20 hours a week and study for my classes. In my freshmen year, I selected 5 classes totaling about 16 credit hours, and that was the toughest transformation coming from high school to college. The transformation took me a while to adapt to UIC and the environment of the classrooms. I found myself lost and very unsociable during my years of UIC. I did not make any classmates friends until my sophomore year of college. All these factors made it tough for me to do great in school and adapt. I dropped
Let’s flash back in time to before our college days. Back to then we had lunch trays filled with rubbery chicken nuggets, stale pizza, and bags of chocolate milk. A backpack stacked with Lisa Frank note books, flexi rulers, and color changing pencils. The times where we thought we wouldn’t make it out alive, but we did. Through all the trials and tribulations school helped build who I am today and shaped my future. From basic functions all the way to life-long lessons that helped shape my character.
I have always wanted to make good grades but I never really set any goals but, then I realized that setting academic goals are way more important than people realize . I then started to set goals like my sophomore year of high school after I did that it really helped me focus on my future and what I wanted for myself. My goals I think pushed me so much more academically they opened my eyes a little bit more. One Goal I set was to graduate High school with a Core 40 diploma, which I did, so that is one goal down and a bunch more to go. My senior year I started applying to college but my main goal was to make into Saint Mary-of-the Woods and when I received my acceptance letter I was ecstatic. So far, I am still trying to figure out my academic goals for college but, I do know for sure that I want to succeed in every single way that I can so I can make a better future for myself. A goal that I made this year is to make the dean’s list every single time, for this I will study so hard for every test, do all of my homework, and ask questions when I have them and maybe even getting a tutor. This challenge will probably be really tough but I believe that I can do it if I put my mind to it, and I tend to be a very determined
