My name is Montaisia Hawkins. I am currently a senior at New Kent High School. My academic status is satisfying with a GPA of 2.3; however I am working towards improving it to a 3.0 or higher. I enjoy listening to music, dancing, reading and learning new things. I am very excited about finishing high school and continuing on to college. Hopefully I will be able to get accepted and attend Old Dominion University. I want to create realistic goals and stay focus on my goals, the more I stay focused on them the better chance I have of achieving them. My first two years of high school I attended Varina High School when I was living with my father. I’ve been living with my dad since I was about seven years old, at the age of sixteen I moved with my mother when she got her own house. I have a total of 5 siblings; two of which is just my dad’s and three which is my mom’s. I love my family; I think family is very important. On my dad side I have two younger brothers, I’m the oldest and the only girl, so basically get everything I want. However, on my mom side I have one older brother and two younger sisters and of course the baby girl always gets her way. The last few years, I’ve been trying to decide the perfect career for me. I wanted to choose something that would allow me to help others as well as contribute a healthy lifestyle and personal wellness. The career path I’ve chosen to seek is dentistry. I became interested in being a dentist because I recently had braces and my orthodontist really left a lasting impression. Not to mention the fact that healthy teeth and gums are a vital part of personal wellness. I’ve always admired pretty teeth. After doing a little research of various colleges, I learned that Old Dominion has an outstanding Dental Program. I’ve been considering obtaining a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. My overall goal is…
to the College Board budget report for 2013-2014 school year, on average an in-state public college’s tuition costs $22,826 and private college tuition costs $44,750 a year (CollegeData.com). Because of this gross amount of money college requires, I propose the Senate and House of Representatives subtract a sum of their earnings received from extensive salaries by taxpayers and give a portion of the sum back to their states’ colleges and universities through Pell Grants.

growth at the college and university level. In 1951, the first women’s league was established in the United States and things changed from then on. The Craig Club Girls Soccer League had four teams and played complete schedules for two seasons. This is considered as the changing point in the history of women soccer. Although, it took around a decade before the soccer was included as a serious game in colleges. The beginning of 20th century saw US women soccer gain high popularity and international…

Divorce and out-of-wedlock childbearing are now epidemic in American society. Both forms of disrupted families are harmful to children and to society. The children of single parents are more likely to do poorly in school, commit crimes, and become single parents themselves. In addition, the increase in single-parent families contributes to such social problems as poverty, crime, and a decline in the quality of public education.
Divorce and out-of-wedlock childbirth are transforming the lives of…
