But the summer before my eight grade year I really wanted to learn how to play the drums. So I started taking lessons and I loved how difficult it was and I loved it. I had only been going to lessons for about two months and there was an incoming freshmen night for La Cueva at the Halloween football game and so we all went so we could play our instrument with the high
Since eighth grade I never really took anything the ConnCAP staff said to me seriously; it took me seventeen years to actually understand and realize how important college is and how important having a good education is. They have helped me in many ways by engaging me in meaningful learning experiences for the purpose of enhancing my basic skills and critical thinking. From grades eighth-twelfth, I’ve attended a ConnCAP Summer program for six weeks each summer. This has helped me improve my chances of competing in an advanced society by offering enrichment classes in the areas of math, science and English. During those six weeks I worked on material that helped me get ready for the next grade.
I successfully joined a discourse community of a music class to learn the skills of playing an electronic keyboard in my sophomore year of high school. I attended a seminar in our school conducted by a renowned institution known as The Trinity College of London. The Trinity College of London offers graded musical qualifications in performing arts, musical theory and for performance in electronic keyboards, piano, violin, and many other musical instruments. Having a soft corner for music since childhood, I decided to opt for their class as I thought this to be the perfect platform to enhance my skills in an art form that I was passionate about. Moreover, the class took place in one famous music college that was just a few blocks away from my school.
But what he didn’t know was what I would take to make it big As griffon got a little older he moved to different places. But he never stopped playing. He moved to a place where he found other kids with musical talents. They decided to start a band, griffon was the drummer. They were one step closer to making it to the top By the time griffon got into high school he decided that he needed to take some designated classes, one which would help him find a career.
I also joined Marching Band. I did Marching Band my full 4 years of High School playing the Bass Drum. My dream was to go into the Music Industry and be able to produce music for artists and then I realized my Sophomore Year that it was an extremely difficult field to get into. I had a “Plan B” which was my second favorite thing to do, nursing. My mother has been a nurse for about 7 years now.
All I was worried about was my mom getting me to practice on time or being the first one out to recess to get the good swing, but once middle school came around I started thinking about grades and how I needed to start doing well in my writing. No matter how hard I tried I struggled to find what the teacher was really looking for and they would have no problem pointing that out to me, because I would also jump back in and try again. In fifth grade our class went to the annual ‘5th grade camp’ at Clear Lake for a week. Somewhere between the teamwork activities and journal entries caused something to click and I realized writing and stories aren’t just made up creativity coming from people’s heads, it was all built off experiences they have had in there lives. From then on when a writing assignment came up I would relate that topic to my life and twist events and experience to please my audience.
Merritt Tondee Dr. Anish Dave 26 September 2012 24 November 2012 Composition 1 Occupational Therapy Since I began high school, I knew my ambition when I began college; I would want to study occupational therapy. When I was 15 years old, I broke my wrist in eight different places. Even though it was a long and painful summer, it was interesting how my therapist worked with my wrist so that I gained the full range of motion back. I knew that becoming an occupational therapist, school was the main aspect ahead of me. Occupational therapists prove therapy treatments to patients with disabilities, injuries, or illnesses in order to help the patients fully recover so that they can perform every day activities without encountering problems.

This wasn't any regular cheer competition, this was the Special Olympics and this was my first time volunteering as a Unified Partner. It was my Senior year in high school. Thinking back I never would have thought I would be faced with the amazing opportunities that came to me during the school year. Just before I was making my schedule my principal approached me and asked me to become a Peer Mentor. She explained that I would be tutoring freshman and helping them with their school work for two class periods a day.
