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…
Since my tenth grade year of high school which was in August 2010-2011 I came to the conclusion that I wanted to attend college. Even though I played around my freshman year which was the most important year and counted the most I had to work hard on becoming the woman I wanted to be. After hearing so many people get put down about not going to college and being told that I wasn’t gone go to college neither I chose to prove everyone wrong. I started filling out college applications…
attended summer learning classes too, to prepare for my 1st year.
When school started, I was shocked, I thought I knew everything, I thought my accounting classes were going to be a walk in the park, like high school. But I was wrong, on top of the challenging university curriculum, were obstacles that challenged your soft skills.
Time management was my biggest weakness that university has brought to my attention. What the university gives you is too much time, not too little, but too much.
Why Students Should not Have to Take Standardized Tests
I don’t believe that high school students should have to pass a standardized test in order to receive a diploma. In my opinion it does not improve academic achievement but it worsens it. I have many valid reasons to support my opinion.
The first reason I believe that high school students should not have to pass a standardized test is because it keeps many good, smart students out of college. Some colleges require a certain…
It made me cry. Very touching.
"An 87 Year Old College Student Named Rose
The first day of school our professor introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn’t already know.
I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned round to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me
with a smile that lit up her entire being.
She said, “Hi handsome. My name is Rose. I’m eighty-seven years old. Can I give you a hug?”
I laughed and enthusiastically…

middle school student, and possibly higher than the average high school student. I believe this because I have been planning my future step-by-step. First I anticipate to take all Honors and AP classes, and pass them with all A+'s, when I attend high school. I also intend to join clubs, such as Debate Team or Mock-Trail Team to help show my commitment to my future of being a successful Criminal Lawyer.
Secondly, when I graduate from high school I intend to immediately go to a university. The first…
College Application Essay
If the University of Pittsburgh could only accept one student during this application period, it should be me. I have firm self-confidence and I truly believe in myself as a person.

Nobody is perfect and everyone has their strengths and weaknesses, however I believe that me as a person make…
