Introduction: Just the basics Past to Present: My family has been a huge impact on the person that I am today. The values and lessons that they have taught me throughout the years will always help guide me through life. Some of the values and lessons they have taught me are always try your best, if you put your mind to something you can achieve anything, and the most important lesson they have taught me is to always follow your dreams and never settle. My family has always been there for me and had always helped me to follow my dreams.
When I was little I decided that I wanted to play soccer. As the years went on and I got better and better I started to train harder to become the best. When middle school came around I really realized how could I was and that was when the talk of college soccer came about. Ever since that day I have worked my hardest to get to the end goal my dad and I have been talking about, playing college soccer. My parent’s have been there for me through every step and have supported me through the whole Journey.
The event in my past that stands out the most is when I moved to Kentucky in the seventh grade. That was a huge step for me and has taught a lot bout my self. It has taught me how strong a person I really am to be able to adjust into a whole new area and lifestyle at a time in your life when everything seems to be set in stone. But in the end I knew that my family would always be there for me throughout the entire move and they would help me adjust and fit in. The item in my me box are very important to me and really have a lot to say about the person that I am today.
First I have a little soccer ball because soccer is basically my life and I have no idea what to do without it. Infinity ring because both my sister and I have it and he meaner the world to me. I also put in a purple sharpie because my favorite color is purple. I included my planner because it has a beach design on it and I spent a lot of my summers at the beach, and it is one of my favorite places. Lastly I included a t- shirt for the high school I went to because I have so many good memories there that have influenced the person I am today.
Course Expectation: The relationships that I expect to form while in this class is that I hope that I can make some new friends that will stick with me throughout the rest of my time here at Georgetown and also for the rest of my life. The transition from high school into college is definitely a big one. Being able to have a small class that allows you to get to know everyone really well is very helpful, since you don’t have all your friends from high school by your side so you are required to make and form new relationships and friendships with other people.
I also plan to gain a better relationship with my advisor. Having this class once a week and the professor being my advisor will really help me to get to know her and to build a relationship with her. She in return will also get to know me so that when it comes time to putting together a class schedule she will know that I also play soccer and can help me to build a class schedule that will allow me to get all my work done and still have time for sports and other fun activities going on around campus. I also believe that having a strong relationship Witt your advisor will be very beneficial to you down the road.
Since we all go away to college we no longer have our parent’s around us all the time, which can either be a good or a bad thing. If you are having troubles or Just need someone to talk to your advisor can be the one to step into that “mom” role and help you out. That is the most important thing I expect out of this class is a strong relationship with my advisor. What I believe will be beneficial to me, from this course is being able to discuss problems that are going on and to talk with your peers and see if they are going through the same troubles, and see what they are doing about it.
Lastly I want to learn some new skills that will help me throughout the rest of my time in college such s time management and ways to be successful not only in college but for the rest of my life. Georgetown College: I don’t think that it will be very hard to find a mentor here at Georgetown. Everyone seems to be very nice and they all want to help the students to see them succeed while they are here a Georgetown. In high school it was important for me to make relationships with all my teachers and that will also be important to do with all my professors here at college.
Once I get more comfortable around them then I would be able to go to them and ask for help with not only that subject but Just about NY issue that I am experiencing and get good advice as to what I need to do. Some differences that I see between myself and others at Georgetown is that I have a tendency to be a little shy when in knew surroundings but once I get used to them I am able to open up a lot more. Also using my strengths from the strengths quest will help to open up. I was not really surprised by my strengths. I do believe that they describe me quite well. My family definitely agrees that I am a very competitive person.
I am competitive in sports and in the classroom and I always trivet to be the best. I am also focused on what ever I am working on; making sure it is done to the best of my ability. Consistency describes me because I always try to treat everyone equally and with respect. I am also a very positive person. I try to look for the good in every situation and I see most things as the glass half full. Lastly I am very organized for the most part but I do have my moments of weakness like many people in the world and I always try to find the best way of doing something so that it makes my life easier and the lives of others that are involved.
