I wasn’t raised Navajo. I didn’t grow up on the reservation. I have never tried to herd sheep. I have always had clean, running water. Many customs are lost to me. Yet I finally hit a huge milestone in my heritage when I attended my grandparents' Navajo meeting in April. Navajo meetings are the equivalent of a church service, although meetings last longer. Instead of one or two hours in the morning or mid-day, meetings last thirteen hours...

Supplemental Essay for Marquette: Unique question posed by school
482 Words
I have been interested in athletic training as a career since I was in sixth grade. Playing basketball exposed me to many injuries and introduced me to my first athletic trainer. After meeting the trainer, I realized I have always wanted to learn how the human body responds to stresses and rehabilitation and help athletes recover from injuries. Athletic training would be a great way for me to do both. Enrolling in the Health Science Academy (HSA) at Moorpark High...

I would like to work to reduce the number athletes who are affected later in life by head injuries suffered during their athletic careers. This may not seem like an important issue to some, but it is still an issue that needs to be addressed. In a study conducted in 2013, it was determined concussion symptoms may fade, but the brain itself takes years to heal. When an athlete sustains a head injury, the symptoms may not be apparent right away,...

Within my Roman Catholic community, there are many different people with many different roles. There are the leaders of the church, such as the priests, deacons, and youth minister. Then there is the congregation. I belong to both groups. As a peer minister, I have become a leader in my church. My job is to help the youth learn about and understand their faith, help the adult leaders with church events, and help with Mass. When working with the youth,...

There are many reasons that I am attracted to the School of Kinesiology at the University of Michigan. The University of Michigan has one of the top programs in the nation because of the curriculum provided. The combination of the hand-on experience and rigorous classroom work caught my attention. As a high school student who was able to tape and bandage athletes early on, having the ability to learn hands-on is rather important to me. Classes such as physiology, pharmacology,...
