Some come for more opportunities and education and a better way of life. What is really the incentive for this.

Personal Experience: The Seventh Grade

- The seventh grade....what can I say. It has been a roller coaster, one full of notes, homework, deadlines, big assignments, deadlines, huge projects, speeches, presentations, and learning.

My Personal Statement On My Life

- I grew up poor and without a father figure in my life. Most of the time these stories end bad but I made some decisions in my life that changed it forever.

I felt like this because I wanted that love from my father. This made me into an angry young boy.

Personal Statement : Adult Foster Care

- . In the past when I worked in an adult foster care, I would often celebrate a client’s small accomplishments; this showed my encouraging mode (Taylor, 2008). Some of the clients did not want to attend any of the outings or socialize with others at the home. I believe that they secluded themselves just because they wanted the staff to give them attention. Some of the staff would just watch TV on their shift and not care about what the clients were doing. Thus, when I was working I would make sure to say how good it was when I saw them outside their room or they came along on the outing....   [tags: Want, Motivation, Need, Game]

Personal Note On Relationship Building Assignments

- Prior to the relationship building assignments, I had never written a professional thank you note to a professor or place of business. I had a pen pal throughout middle school and also wrote notes to teachers that I had built a relationship with in high school, but neither were to the same degree of professionalism as I learned to utilize in this course. My notes mainly focused on updates of how I was, how my family was, and maybe a few questions to cap off the note. Outside of my experience writing note cards, I did know that there was this ‘mysterious art of professional note writing.’ My family owns a roofing business and the operation is pretty old school....   [tags: High school, Learning, Education, Teacher]

- One's future is affected by many things; decisions, consequences of decisions, and commitments to decisions. When asked to define how my future is affected according to my commitments, it took a great deal of thought to first decide how I viewed commitments. Webster defines commitment as "an agreement or pledge to do something in the future".
