One of my main goals for this class is to feel more ready for college by the end of it because currently, I do not. In addition, a goal of mine is to get the highest grade I can get. Overall, my main goal is to be ready for college.
In this class, I hope to improve my all of my English skills. Especially improve my writing skills and get them on a college-ready level. In addition, I hope to improve my essays and the time it takes me to write them. All in all, I hope to get prepared for college.
My strengths in English are grammar, reading comprehension, and vocabulary. I find it is easier to do these topics compared to writing essays, which I really dislike. When writing essays, I feel my strength is in writing the body paragraphs. Therefore, I prefer doing these topics and I actually like doing them.
One of my weaknesses is writing essays because I always need a lot of time to write them. In writing essays, I struggle with writing the introduction and concluding paragraphs. Another one of my weaknesses is reading because I tend to get bored and zone out. Also, some figures of speech are hard for me to remember.
The song "Como La Flor," by Selena, represents me because Selena is one of my favorite artists and her music made me appreciate my Mexican culture more. This was the first Spanish song I liked and it introduced me to many more Spanish songs and artists. Also, this music helped me improve my Spanish speaking skills which is important to me because a lot of my family speaks Spanish.
Another hobby of mine is sports. Although I'm not that good at playing them, I love watching them. My favorite sports are basketball and football. My favorite sports teams are Golden State and the 49ers. My favorite player is Stephen Curry.
One of my hobbies is acting. I have been in drama for three years and I am currently the Vice President of the drama department. I have been in 4 plays and landed 2 lead roles last year. Acting is my main hobby and I enjoy doing it the most.
