Creating and achieving goals are some important things that people want to do in their lives and learn to accomplish or achieve them. The goals can be small, big, long, short, simple, complicated, hard, objective, career, life, educational, professional and it can be for anything such as health, job, work, you, the people that are around you, friends, family, the world, history, culture and advocacy. In order to accomplish or achieve these goals, you need to have a lot of time, effort, proficiency, patience and perseverance. Goals are the ones to be proud of because we are accomplishing them every day you just do not realize it. As a full-time college freshman student attending Fullerton College and majoring in Elementary Education, my professional goals are performing well academically, apply for scholarships, study well, qualify for the honors program; raise my cumulative grade point average of my freshman year to a 3.5, have a B and above in all classes, graduate college with Latin Honors, transfer to a four-year university to California State University Fullerton or University of California Irvine for my last two years of college, plan out my schedule, ace those exams, midterms, tests and finals, turn in my assignments on time, take classes in the summer 2014 semester, improve my critical thinking, on-the-spot essay writing and oral presentations or speech skills, begin my career as a teacher from grade levels Kindergarten to fifth grade and to teach abroad at international schools. Giving all of my best, effort, time, passion and care as an educator to children is one big objective goal because teachers today are the people we rely on to our children because they help children find their path, begin their journey, express ... ... middle of paper ... ...n potential. The reason why I chose to take education as my major in college is because I really enjoyed being with younger children as my past time while being in high school ever since my niece came along on January 19, 2012 and when I began volunteering after school at one of the pre-schools near my home. My instinct at that time is to find out what you want to do as a living based on what you enjoy doing daily. In my setting during this time was to become a teacher and to nurture the minds of children who are growing today. Overall, without teachers today what will to happen to the future of children today? A teacher is one person in life that is always there for you no matter what occurs in your own daily lives. At the end of day when the class is over children think about their teachers on how it impacted them in their own lives as they come, move on and go.

As a child I did not know a lot about college. None of the adults in my life had been to College, my family did not talk about it, and it seemed like a distant land that I heard about only in movies and on Television. I was first introduced to college when my third grade class took a field trip to Iowa State University, clearly a much needed field trip considering my lack of exposure to higher education. I was immediately amazed by the grand architecture and massive buildings. I had never seen anything like a University campus before. The few things that I remember about the trip were that everything was big, the college students played with us, and we got to swim in the pool. While the larger purpose of the field trip may have been lost to my childhood excitement of getting to swim in a big pool, the field trip did mark the beginning of my knowledge of higher education and from then on I always viewed it as something that I would be a part of eventually, even if it did seem like a very distant future at age eight. As I grew older I developed other reasons for wanting to attend colle...
Deciding on a career is a very difficult decision for anyone to make, especially for someone just coming out of high school. I always knew that I wanted to work with children, but I didn’t know what field I wanted to be in. After thinking about what field I could be in that I could work with children the most, I decided to become a teacher. I have always had a great deal of respect for most of the teachers I’ve had and hopefully I will be able to gain that respect from my students.
First off, I would like to say again, thank you for nominating me as a possible recipient for this scholarship. I do not think I have ever been recognized for my academic achievements throughout my entire school career. I never was really focused and determined to learn before like I am now. So just the nomination is an honor, no matter if I receive the scholarship or not. Thank you for the recognition. It truly made my day.

I came to Brooklyn College in the Fall of 2015 as a meek, and unsure transfer student with a budding interest in History. From my very first round of courses, all of you whom I’ve had the pleasure of taking classes under have made me feel more than welcome here at Brooklyn College—especially in the halls of Boylan—and helped foster that early spark of interest into a not only a fuller appreciation, but a worthwhile skill as well . It was an unexpected honor and pleasure to receive this Merit Scholarship at the end of my undergraduate career. I would like to thank the Chair of the Department, and all of its faculty, but especially Professors Napoli, Warren, Wills, Fishman & O’Keeffe, for teaching me the ropes, and providing me with the guidance
Changes have to be change by the fact that many students from Anaheim High School are not succeeding, the way to do it is to let them earn themselves a full ride scholarship to a four year University. For the ones that can achieve the goal do not have to struggle for money in the future, which then have to pay early on. Many of the students from California receive scholarship by after school programs, sports, and excellent grades. Anaheim High School should pressure the students to have extraordinary grades throughout their freshmen year to senior year and the only way to do that is to give them a reward for their hard work. A program that only focuses on freshmen students to be drafted for a total of forty-percent. The students will have

In high school I had the privilege to experience many amazing opportunities to further me in the future! I really enjoyed working with others and discovering the world around me, personally high school has offered a lot of travel for me.

Born on October 2, 1998, and raised in Denville, New Jersey, I have noticed since I was a young child that I see the world differently. When confronted by with the challenges that I am faced with by life, big or small, I see possibility and need for growth and change in the way society functions, which can be acquired through education. I can only educate others once I am educated to the furthest extent. I have much to learn, and can expand my knowledge through the University of Southern California Resident Honors Program. Beginning with my childhood, nearly all of my actions can be drawn to my love for artistry, for my community, and for my interest in the sciences. In the future, I would like to earn a PhD in psychology to direct my own behavioral
I am the perfect candidate for the BRITE scholarship because I see what the future has in store because of great scientist and researchers. Helping the sick has always been one of my dreams in life. From the time I was in kindergarten until now, I always knew the type of career I wanted to have. Whether it was being a pediatric surgeon, a forensic scientist, pharmacologist or a pharmacist. I knew that I wanted to have a hands on career in the health and science field. There was always something about the everyday discoveries and the opportunity to learn so much about our everyday life through science that I have always been drawn to. Not only do I want to help people get well in my lifetime but I also would like to make new discoveries that

I am aware that I no longer meet the grade point average of a 3.0 to be eligible for the Academic Excellence Scholarship and I take full responsibility for that. I am grateful for the opportunity to have been awarded such a scholarship. I know that I have fallen below my own academic standards and the standard expected of me by the Scholarship Committee, and without a doubt I have learned several things than can prevent me from falling below those standards.
