Every day millions of people have many events that occur through their life. Many of these events could be either positive or negative. But the real question is, have these events played an important role in the decisions we make today ? The answer for me is yes. In this essay I will be discussing how the events in my life, made me to what I am today, and how It made me into becoming a successful student. Ever since I was a little girl, my grandfather has had severe heart problems. I remember seeing him in the hospital before his surgeries. After these surgeries I used to watch him and help take care of him at home, because he was in so much pain. I hated seeing him like this, and It made me wonder, "would I hate seeing anyone like this ? Around age twelve, I went to visit my grandparents for the summer, and I was outside with my grandfather one evening. Our neighbor stopped by my grandparents house to see me, since they knew I was up their to visit. She told my grandfather that I looked fairly sick and that I have lost a lot of weight. After a few days, I began feeling exhausted, irritated, thirsty, and frequent urination. My grandparents and mother took me to the hospital to get some blood work done because these symptoms were occurring for weeks. The results of the blood test returned, and they sent me off to a major hospital because they assumed I was diagnosed with diabetes. When I arrived to the hospital I remember being rushed into the ER because I almost passed out into a diabetic coma because my blood sugar was very high. A day later I woke up, and looked around and their were iv's all through my arm. I hated this feeling, and knew this was a disease that I was going to have for the rest of my life. But the nurses I had were awesome. They helped me look past all the negativeness around me and…...

My Future

...My Future Goals What are my future goals? Well, let me say that I am dreaming big. I do not wish to become the President or even a CEO of a big business. I just want to be able to make a difference in the life of another. I will be attending my college in the fall and studying to become a pharmacist. After three years there, I will transfer to the actual pharmacy school for another two years. There, I will complete my Pharm D degree, also known as a Doctorate of Pharmacy. I would like to start my career in a pharmacy getting to work with and talk to patients one on one. This will help me better understand how some diseases affect people and which diseases are top priorities to eliminate. It would also be very enjoyable to work with the pharmacy technicians as well. Eventually, I want to obtain a PhD in Pharmacy. By receiving my PhD, I am able to participate in lab research. It is a dream of mine to be able to partake in finding cures for diseases like AIDS and even cancers.

My Past vs My Future

...in los angles, California and with only one older sibling and my mother we had a lot of hardships. We moved a lot, never stayed in one place for more than a few months, my mom and my brother would always get into fights, my dad was on drugs and my mom kept me home-schooled and sheltered, causing me not to have a social life, or have any kind of friends for that matter. I grew up in an environment where my mom did business a lot because she had her own business and even as I child I would have to help with the family business. I learned about business and technology at a young age along with business. I know so much about business now because of my mother. And yeah at the time it was beneficial but then as time went on I became further behind in learning because I was not in school and the tutors I had were not certified in teaching, they would just be people that we knew. So every year it would get harder and harder for us. It even seems like we became homeless more and more each year. I’ve slept so many places and have been evicted out of the nicest house to the most raggedy motels. My brother and I have such a big age difference, so because of that he was mostly never around, he is 11 older than I, but he was always there for me. Eventually, when we realized there was nothing left for us in California my mother and I just got in our car and left California never to return again. So now were on our way to Georgia. My mom promised we were going to go back to California, she......

What My Parents Told Me

...What My Parents Told Me Growing up as a child we were taught that sex was nasty, and only married couples were the only people on earth to have sexual relationships. My parents were not open to neither talk about sex nor teach my sibling and me anything about sex. Talking about sexuality or anything to do with our bodies was like an embarrassment to them they were ashamed to talk to us. The communication lines between us were really slim. “A child can learn to express her or his affection and sensual feelings through activities such as kissing and hugging the child receive these expressions of intimacy can have a strong influence on the manner in which he or she express sexuality in later years.” (Cook, 2011, p.346) My parents did not show us any affection no hugging, kissing good night, no saying I love you, no nothing. Growing up I thought it was strange to see other parents kiss their children, hug their children and even tell them that they love them. Playing outside we would play games like “hide go get it”. “Usually around the ages of 5-7, children became interested in the other sex, their own bodies, and inquiries as to where babies come from (Cooks & Baur, 2008). One day I asked my Mom why she didn’t hug or kiss us, she said it doesn’t take all that to show you that I love you. My parents thought that providing a stable home and food and clothing was enough. As I grew older I began to tell my parents that I love them and try to hug and kiss them I only......

What Matters More to My Kids’ Future:

...What matters more to my kids’ future: Their school or quality time with their parents? 1] On countless mornings over the past year, I stood with my 3-year-old son, James, in our driveway, watching our next-door neighbor trudge off to fifth grade. As she’d disappear around the corner, I’d think ahead to the kind of school James might attend when he starts kindergarten in two years. 2] My wife and I are in our early 30s, living in Ann Arbor, Mich., where she is finishing her training as a demographer. Over the next year we’ll figure out where we’re going to live for the long haul. Where we choose will depend to some extent on the job market, but it will also depend heavily on where we want James and his brother, Oscar, 1, to go to school. 3] We can’t afford private-school tuition, so living in a city would probably mean chancing it on a subpar public school system. And although I loved growing up on the coast of Maine, the limits of my public high school education became clear when I got to college and immediately felt like I was behind. I would like my boys to be better prepared for college. 4] But if my wife and I wanted to do everything we could to give James and Oscar the best possible K-12 education, we’d have to make some big changes. We’d have to choose more lucrative careers than hers in academia and mine as a writer so we could afford urban private schools or a house in an affluent suburb where the public schools are better. But between the......

Me Myself and My Future

...from now, because I’m not expecting the better or best life in future. Cause for me, before you reach your dreams you have to work hard to fulfil your dreams, but hopefully I can get my dreams in a fastest way and in good way without stepping someone. After a few years I can see myself in the ship, navigating the ship at the oceans and travel all around the world. I know at this stage of my college life is the one of the hardest thing, because you are far from your family, and you have to work for your own life, I didn’t expect that this moment I can manage myself good, because at my high school life is different at this moment cause in high school you can be free at all times and there is a parent who can guide you and accept you even you gave them many problems. On high school there is parents wash your clothes, preparing your meal and etc. this moment that I am studying here at MPFC, this is my stepping stone to achieve my goal and dreams. After 5 years from now I can see myself at a ship or a luxury ship or a big ship meeting different types of person. I can see myself successful, helping my family and others. I can see myself a great man serving other people, I can see myself enjoying my life, I can see myself a inspiration to others that they can tell he or I a successful man. Life is too short so enjoy it. As you waste your breathe complaining about life, someone out there is breathing their last. Appreciate what you have.

Whats in It for Me

...What’s in IT for me? When I came to the prestigious University of Cincinnati, I knew, through much of my father’s help, that I wanted to go into the business field. Throughout my freshman year I was unsure of what major I wanted to peruse, but when the Operations Management head, Ruth Sieple, came and spoke to my freshman Pathways class I knew that this major was definitely for me. When she spoke of how people in this major are organized, detail oriented, and like to find more efficient and faster way to complete tasks, those qualification were all mine! I have not taken any core classes in Operations Management yet but I am very excited too in the future. I currently just accepted a job offer with General Electric for next semester in their Operations Management department. I will hopefully be involved with planning and purchasing supplies from their many suppliers, here and abroad, and learning how to manage inventory which is critical in any manufacturing business. A high knowledge of inventory, stocking, designing efficient and productive processes, by effectively allocating resources, controlling inventory, and scheduling projects is obtained when pursuing this specific major. Once one graduates with an Operations management degree, specific job titles such as production manager, operations manager, purchasing manager and agency administrator, just to name a few, can be pursued within this field. Obviously in stating all of that, technology is not only a huge......

Me-- What Makes Me Me

...For the past seven years of my life music has been a big part of my life. Music is a teaching tool, a way to learn and envelop yourself, escape from the world when it becomes chaotic, and get out the thoughts and emotions that just cannot be expressed as words. And I have indulged myself in it from the start. I have become drum major of the Mary G. Montgomery Pride Marching Band, made MCPSS honor band, I sit first chair of my school’s symphonic band, and I am the lead alto saxophone in the MGM jazz band. Strangely enough, this all started with a divorce. When I was in the fourth grade my parents divorced, little did I know it was a blessing in disguise because in fifth grade my father remarried and that’s when it really began; my newfound older step-sister was in the exact same band that I now lead, and because of her I decided that I too wanted to join band. Immediately, I loved it; it came so naturally, and as I progressed, I was amazed at the things I could do with music the way the seemingly subtle change of one thing could completely change the entire experience, emotion, and message that existed within a piece of music. High school is where I truly blossomed as musician. As a freshman, I began playing in the jazz band (which developed into my favorite style to play), I made first chair in the symphonic band over three seniors and a junior, I began learning how to play the bassoon, and I began to teach myself piano and guitar. Currently, I play alto saxophone, bassoon,......

My Veiled Future

...dreams since they were young. And they are sure that they want those dreams to be their future. However, some people find their dreams after they have grown up. Most of the teenagers are still having numerous dream jobs in their mind. Most of them not sure of what they want to be but they knew where they want to be. They want to live without worries , and live happily in the future. For me, as a 17-years-old student, my only aim for now is to pass my O'level with good grades so that i can get into the course that i want. Even though my mind has been wavering with a lot of thoughts and people's 'suggestion'. It is really hard for me to stick on one dream as i am easily influenced by other people. I wanted to be a business woman when i was young because i saw a movie about a successful business woman and i thought she was cool. After a while, i wanted to be an engineer like my father, a hotel owner after i visited to a grand hotel as i thought it would be awesome and a ballet dancer when i saw a Hong Kong movie about a beautiful ballet dancer. As i grew up i had more and more dreams. I wanted to be spy, detective, singer, and lastly architecture. And now i had realized, no matter how many dreams i had, there are some common factors about the dreams that i want. I wanted those career because i thought it would be cool, famous and mostly money. The fact that i like money does not change. My last dream was to be an architecture because i thought it is a respectable job and......

...SPEECH ABOUT “MY FUTURE” STUDENT NAME- becky MODULE TITLE- ACADEMIC WRITING MODULE CODE- PF013 WORD COUNT- 750-1000 THE SUBJECT OF MY SPEECH IS “MY FUTURE” Hello ladies and gentlemen. My name is Bukky Dada. I am a student of Greenwich School of Management, and I’m studying Business Management. I am honoured to stand here before you to give a short speech about “MY FUTURE”. I can recollect the day l received my letter of admission to Greenwich School of Management, l was so excited because l was one step closer to my dreams. I had worked with “Compass Group” for 6years as a chef, so l knew a lot about catering. Before coming to this country, back home in Nigeria l used to work in the hotel as an assistant manager. I have come up with three plans for my future, which is to own a big restaurant, give my children better a future, so it will be easier for them to concentrate more in school,( because without education, there is really no future for anyone) and lastly, set up an orphanage to help the poor in my country. My perfectly laid plan for myself is unavoidably. I had always wanted to be a business woman, own two to three big restaurants with lots of staff working for me, and being my own boss. This is something l had wanted since l was a child. I understand and believe that l have to upgrade myself to achieve some certain goals in life. Some of these goals are personal to me while the others are professional. Now l have come to a cross road in my......

My Future

...time I was able to realize what a university was, all I heard from my mother's side of the family was about the University of Michigan and the great heritage it has. Many a Saturday afternoon my grandfather would devote to me, by sitting me down in front of the television and reminiscing about the University of Michigan while halftime occurred during a Michigan Wolverines football game. Later, as I grew older and universities took on greater meaning, my mother and uncle, both alumni of the University of Michigan, took me to see their old stamping grounds. From first sight, the university looked frightening because of its size, but with such a large school comes diversity of people and of academic and non-academic events. In Springfield High School, non-academic clubs such as the Future Physicians and the Pylon, both of which I have belonged to for two years, give me an opportunity to see both the business world and the medical world. These two clubs have given me a greater sense of what these careers may be like. In Future Physicians, I participated in field trips to children's hospitals and also participated in two blood banks. Currently I hold a job at Maas Brothers. This lets me interact with people outside my own immediate environment. I meet different kinds of people, in diffrent moods, with different attitudes, and with different values. This job teaches me to be patient with people, to have responsibility, and to appreciate people for what they are. In the......

What Excites Me About My Future in Technology

...Ibukunoluwa Sobayo Lee University April 10, 2015 What Excites Me About The Future Of Technology? It is not news that we are at the peak of technological advancements that will change our lives. Nothing has made more impact on how we live our lives today or carry the potential to so seriously improve the human condition, as the technologies each one of us now has at our disposal, and the wonders yet to come. The inter-connectedness we have, the vast amounts of information accessible to us in less than a minute, the way in which anyone with basic knowledge can communicate with their friends and family, or even the entire world is quite impressive. The ease and convenience with which we can access almost any resource on the internet using anything from a mere personal computer to a small smart device in the pocket is highly impressive. I am encouraged and grateful to be part of such a great global innovation. I truly believe that personal and individually accessible technologies, will become an important part of humanity’s next stage of growth in the general quality of life and even survival. There is such a great potential to empower any individual to interact with people all over the world – from family and friends to new people on the other side of the planet. Nothing the human race has seen to date has the potential to empower the individual to make as much of a difference, to make as much of a connection, to make as much of himself as the technologies we have now and......

How Pearland Prepared Me for My Future

...“How has the Pearland Independent School District prepared me for the future?” Almost two years ago I was just a normal student, I did what I needed to get an A or a B and I wasn’t involved in any extracurricular activities, then I moved to Pearland. I had never before been to a school where I wanted to be a part of things, or a school where I felt welcome and accepted. I have been lucky enough to know what career pathway I want to pursue but I had absolutely no clue where to start. When I enrolled in Pearland I was informed that Turner High School down the road has veterinary medicine courses. It was like a dream come true, until I found out that it was too late to enroll at Turner. I thought for sure I was going to have to pass up the opportunity of a lifetime but the counselor worked her magic and got me in the veterinary medicine course at Turner, I would just have to travel between schools. I have wanted to be in FFA for a while but I had never had the opportunity to do so. When I came to Pearland I was finally able to become a part of the organization and I was even in time to raise an animal for major stock shows like the Houston Rodeo. It was a bit intimidating to raise my first animal for a show that had such a large volume of contestants but I had already waited so long for this opportunity. I chose to raise a goat because of how difficult it is to train them considering I like a good challenge. In addition to raising an animal for FFA I was also in LDEs and......

My Future

...little assistance to get me started with my education. Without a doubt, college preparation is new to me. So, there is a lot that I will have to learn. If I receive this $1,000 scholarship, it will be of immense help to me. I could use it towards my books for my classes and towards tuition. It would relieve some of the stress knowing I have gratefully been given $1,000 that is not coming out of my parent’s pockets. At a young age, I have always had a passion for animals. All I ever dreamed of was having a puppy to grow up with. By the time I reached high school, I had two English Springer Spaniels named Shayla and Shiloh. When I was younger, my mind was set on going to Auburn University to become a veterinarian because it was the only school I ever heard of. For as long as I could remember, that was all I inspired to be. But, as I got older, I realized I also loved being in the presence of kids. My career goal automatically changed into wanting to become a teacher. I had the desire to want to be an inspiration to the kids in my community and to be a factor for why they are successful in life. It would touch my heart if one of my students ever looked up to me and said “because of you, I didn’t give up”. Those are the moments that I would long for. The greatest gift of all will be watching my students thrive. By the time my sophomore year rolled around, I became more intrigued with kids. So, I decided to go into the Early Childhood Program that my school had to offer. I......
