I wasn’t able to do a lot of things that I wanted to do because of my grades. At one point I was actually ineligible to play sports, what are everything to me. My parents influenced me to do better in school by allowing me to get my license the day my grades went above a 3.0. It took me awhile but by the end of the semester I had a 3.1 and was able to get my driver’s license. My grades at an all-time low were around a D average, I was able to go from that to a B average in one semester.
When I first found out I wouldn’t be graduating, it was an Eye Opener for me. I had no clue what I would do, Consequently, I couldn’t pass the algebra 1 EOC test, along with the SAT or ACT. I thought to myself if I could at least have good enough grades I will get by. I don’t know why I thought that. I just really hoped for the best, later down the road 2 months have passed, I was sitting in 7th period and then my teacher got a call telling me to head down to the guidance counselor called me down, we talked about the direction I was going, my GPA was right where it should be.
I dropped out of school when I had my first child and I didn’t get my high school diploma until I had my 3th child. I was very determined to at least get my high school diploma that was a successful day when I received my High School Diploma. My next challenge was to go to college staying focused. I’ve been part of activities and would stop right in the middle, only because either it wasn’t interesting or I would get frustrated. But I came to find out that it was not a great idea to start something and not finish, only because it would start to become a habit and your life would always be flip flop, plus it wasn’t a good example.
Simply put: It's difficult to diagnose, hard to live with and challenging to treat. If I could write a letter to lupus, I would say "I want me back, I've had enough." As a junior at Kent State University, I felt like I was on top of the world. I went to a great school, I was doing exactly what I love (journalism), and then on September 11, 2001, I began to get unexplained illnesses one after another. Eventually, I landed in a hospital bed with an IV pumping a cocktail of drugs meant to cure "a series of infections" ravaging my body.
What degree should I get? After asking myself these questions, I felt like there was no chance I could get into college and earn a degree that would better my future. Some people may find returning to school a very easy decision but, it takes motivation, determination, and confidence. I always thought when I finished high school I would take a year off and then start college. Most things do not happen the way we expected and, I did not start college a year after high school.
My 5 to 10 Year Goals Charles Sangster ITT Technical Institute Strategies for the Technical Professional GS1145 Mr. McMackin March 24, 2014 My 5 to 10 Year Goals My 5 to 10 year goals are very important to me at my current point in life. In order to achieve these goals successfully I will need to take baby steps with them. First of all I want to successfully complete my bachelors degree in electronic engineering at ITT Technical Institute. This is very important to me because this is my last chance at school. Ive been so carefree in the past that I’ve messed up my chances and already have very high school loans in deferment.
I would go try to take the test and never finish because I felt I couldn’t do it. Until December 2011 I keep telling myself that if I didn’t go get it my kids would never have anything and I would be forced to live off the state or my mom. So December came along and I forced myself to go take that test. I was surprised to say I passed everything except my essay part. It took me two weeks to study for the next essay test and I passed with flying colors.
To Financial Aid Academic Appeal Committee, I am writing this letter to inform the Financial Aid Academic Appeal Committee of CCP of my extenuating circumstances regarding the denial of my financial aid. This letter will also explain the reasoning why I was unable to complete my educational goals, and will explain why I would be an excellent candidate for financial aid at this time. The circumstances surrounding my financial aid denial were centered on my non compliance of the terms of the contract I had previously agreed to in the mid 1980’s. It was with much regret that I was unable to attend classes during my attempt at completing my educational goals. The reasoning behind this breach of contract was due to the consequences of a 33 year
We began spending everyday together, it was great. After two years of dating I got pregnant with our beautiful daughter. I got so sick I almost lost her at three months, then again at seven months. I had toxemia so I spent a lot of the time in the hospital. I had to go on independent study because I was bedridden.
When I left the hospital I would begin an aggressive chemotherapy for at least the next six months. I was worried about losing my job than about the treatment. Unbelievably, however, I was granted long-term disability with pay. This relief allowed me to engage in what I love: reading. I decided I would use my convalescence to learn a new hobby, something engaging and something I could share.
