My passion is psychology.
The very first time I heard about psychology I was in middle school, in my Citizen Schools program. I remember it was career day and they began explaining what psychology was. They explained to us that psychology was a way to reveal how humans think and function, this fascinated me. To know that psychology has a lot of unanswered questions is so strange and interesting to me. Throughout my middle school years and now I've been thinking what I would do with a major in psychology because there are many careers within psychology that are compelling. However, I am mostly interested in psychology within media and advertising because social media has become more popular and it’s something that’s all around us.
Leslie's passion to learn about psychology has been evident throughout the 3 years I have known her. Being in AVID requires students to discuss their career goals and create a plan. Leslie has always shown interest in a career in psychology.
Leslie is a hard working student. Throughout the 3 years I have known her she has always showed her determination to succeed. She is a perfect example of what AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) stands for. As an AVID teacher, I am always communicating with the student's teachers. I always hear great things from her teachers as well. I know that if she is accepted to the program, she will work hard and learn a lot.
I had a great time participating in NTLP. The weekend I spent there was filled with many activities that I will value a lot. Those activities taught me a lot about myself and the friends I made there. I am glad I was able to experience a little of the college lifestyle by staying in the dorms.
I am going to be participating in the National Teen Leadership Program in July. I am really excited to attend this program because it will help me develop leadership skills I can use in school and outside of school. I’m also excited to meet new people from around the bay area who I can share ideas and advice with. Additionally, through this program, I will be able to explore a university campus. I believe that participating in this program will help me focus more on careers that involve leadership roles.
I am so impressed by your passion and desire to accomplish your goals. Everyone in our family should be very proud of you. I know I am, keep up the good work and stay focused. I will be happy to help you whenever I can. Love, Your Tio Mark, and Mia, Steven and Charlie
Por qué te quiero y porque te lo mereces felicidades por todo lo que has logrado y falta mucho por venir Dios siga guiando tus pasos Leslie
