I believe that I am an excellent candidate for the Early College program. For me, school is a top priority, and I always strive to be my best. Whenever I set my focus on a task, I will put 100% effort into it until I am satisfied with the result. I am not nervous to talk to adults or teachers, and address any questions I have about the course. To be at college at such a young age demands hard work and dedication, which I am ready to put forth. There is so much in this program that will help me succeed in life. First of all, this program will help me graduate college a year earlier than the rest of my class. I am already young for my grade, so if I am involved in this program I will graduate college at the age of 20 years old. I will be two …show more content…
During middle school, I was not the best student. I did not try my best. But the minute that I entered high school, I knew that I wanted to work hard and do well. I am a year ahead in both my math and science courses. One of the high points in my academic career was when I raised my biology grade for a B to an A. This is a very hard class and I was mentally exhausted from all the work I had put in. I was very thankful that my teacher helped me succeed. I worked with him and did a lot of extra work, and studied incredibly hard, and within 4 weeks, I was able to raise my grade 11%. This was the class I had always been terrified about. I didn’t think I could do it, because in the past science hadn’t been my strong suit. But the feeling that I felt when I got my report card and saw the letter A on it, was an incredible feeling of accomplishment. The low point had to be my two years spent in middle school. I didn’t care. I didn’t want to study or do my homework, so I didn’t. My teachers knew that I was capable of so much more than straight B’s. I also knew it, but I was lazy and careless. I am thankful that I have grown up and that I have begun to respect all of the opportunities given to me in life. The areas that I have improved in are definitely my study habits, and not being afraid to ask my teachers for extra help. I used to be afraid that my teachers would think I am stupid, and that they would judge me if I admitted to them that …show more content…
One of the main ones would definitely be the band at Spring Lake. I participate in the Spring Lake concert band, marching band, and pep band. Band is the incredibly important to me. It is where I met my best friend, where I have spent thousand of hours of my life learning to master various instruments. I enjoy learning how to play many different instruments to keep my mind fresh. When I am in marching band I am part of the sideline percussion section, during concert band I play the oboe, and during pep band I play the flute. At home, I taught myself to play the piano. I believe that the band is a fantastic way to use both sides of your brain. The actually playing of the instrument, and the beautiful musicality of it all works the right side of your brain, while the rhythms and the math behind it all works the left side of your brain. Another activity I am devoted to is the Spring Lake Girls Lacrosse program. This season will be my 5th season playing. I started when I was in sixth grade, which was the first year the sport was ever offered at Spring Lake. I love being in this sport because it keeps me active, and helps me avoid just sitting on the couch after school. I also have a job at Fruitport Food and Ice Cream. This will be my second year employed by the facility, and I love my job. I try to get as many hours as I can, and I really enjoy working. Some responsibilities I have in my daily life is making sure
