Having a mom that is a teacher he had very high standards for himself making all A’s in honors classes. Quickly I began to look up to Nick academically. He mentioned one day in gym that he was going to essentially skip senior year and go to college in a dual enrollment program where he would be getting credits for his senior year to graduate and getting credits for college.

College is going to help me more in life than I realize. It’s going to make me into the person that I’ve always wanted to be, and the degree that I get will get me the job that I’ve wanted since I was fourteen years old.

A dream of mine has always been to be the first in my family to go to college and receive a degree. In order to succeed, I knew I had to learn to manage my disability.

A week before major exams, I start preparing by studying and mapping out my time, making this typically stressful week more manageable.

Generally speaking, it takes 3 years to complete the core courses of Computer Science and I managed to finish them within 2 years. Although my study of Computer Science started one year later than other classmates, the gap was entirely eliminated by my 2 years’ overload. My ability, persistence, and arduous effort resulted in the Academic Excellence Award to confirm my readiness for graduate study.

As far as I know, doing research requires solid technical skills and extensive project experience.
Another smart goal I have is to achieve at least a 3.5 G.P.A all four years. The way I can achieve this is to stop procrastinating for one, and to devote at least an hour and a half of study time over the course of a few days to better improve my grades. Many people in my family throughout my years in school have constantly told me that if I just studied for one hour everyday, I would easily get good grades, and of course I didn 't listen until the end of my high school years, and when I did it helped a lot. Lastly, a goal outside of the classroom I have during college, is to find a good CNA job for me. Last year I took a certified nursing class at Washburn Tech, and I loved it.
When I received my diploma from Elkin High School on the evening of June 12th, 2015, I soon realized this would be the best day of my life.

In August of 2009 I started my first year of what I would call the rest of my life. I say this not because my experience before that time was meaningless, but because it wasn’t until college when I started learning who I was and my potential for success. During my four year tenure, there are many fond memories as there are challenging moments that have made me the person I am today. Although I strive to continually learn new information each day, I can say the time I spent at Missouri State University was well worth the time, energy, and financial loss. To share my story, I will provide an account for each year, including a theoretical analysis of the psychological, cognitive, social, and vocational influences.
