College/Career Presentation

College Name and Mascot

Stanford University it has no official mascot but people believe the tree, which is actually just a member of the band, is the mascot.

College History and Origin

In 1876, former California Governor Leland Stanford purchased 650 acres of Rancho San Francisquito. He made a fortune during the gold rush in California. But one day the Stanford family was going to Italy when their son, Leland Jr. died. The lost of their son made the family think about what they could do to help other children since they couldn't help their son. So they decided that the to help the children in California they were going to start a University. On October 1, 1891, Stanford University opened its doors after six years of planning and building.

Persuasive Essay

Attending college is the dream of most kids since they are young. the want to be someone useful in society while doing what they do what they love. In order to do this they need college. Some students already have a college that they would really like to attend for various reasons. In my case I would love to attend Stanford University. The reasons why I deserve attending Stanford University are because I'm a dedicated student and I have high expectations for myself.

Let us begin with stating that I am a really dedicated student. Since I started middle school and high school I have always done everything I could to do good or even better. I started being a student in the U.S. when 6th grade started. When I started school I didn't speak english so I was placed in ESL class. I was dedicated to study everyday and in the course of 2 months I could understand the language for the most part. Then high school started. I wanted to do everything in order to not go to Socorro High School so I looked into the magnet programs. I applied to all of them in order to escape Socorro High School since people always talked about it as a horrible school. All of the schools I applied to accepted me so I had to choose and I picked the IB program at El Dorado. This program is one of the most rigorous in regards to academic development. Since day one I gave all of my dedication to this program and the reward was well worth it.

Now let us talk about the second reason. I have always had high expectations for myself. I started as a A,B honor roll student, but that was not enough. I knew I had to be better than that so I got my grades up to A honor roll. I also wanted the best high school available in order to be as good as I expected myself to be. That’s why I picked El Dorado High School and didn't go to Socorro High School. In my new high school I continued with my high expectation. I would do whatever it takes to be one of the best students because being in IB is not enough. I got my GPA up and studied hard to be at least in top 10%. But again top 10% is not enough for me. I have to be top 5 in order to fill like I have done good enough. Therefore I studied as hard as possible to achieve my own expectations.

So in conclusion I the two reasons why I deserve to attend Stanford University are because I'm a dedicated student and I set high expectations for myself in order to fill fulfilled.This two have been proven with my middle school and my high school experiences. This two reasons are what drive me to be a better student no matter what and that is why I deserve to attend Stanford University.

Letter of Recommendation

To whom it may concern,

One of the many beauties of life is music. Who knew that a simple sound or beat could be so soothing and pleasing to the human ear. Many people love music, but there are few "outliers", if you will. These outliers develop much more than a love for music, there are no other people more passionate for music than these few. The population is really slim, but I had the great opportunity to meet, work, and proudly consider my friend with one, going by the name Luis Duran.

Since I met Luis, he excelled in all the topic of music, he dedicated most, if not all of the leisure time he could to his music, because his music to this day is his love and his passion, which is unbreakable. Being that the audio engineer position is open for somebody, I can't think of anybody else who deserves it more than Luis. One thing Luis is really good at is also people's skills. He can talk in a fine tone with people and is good at adapting to any given situation both physically and mentally. This skill in particular branches out into multiple skills, where he can benefit off of in the near future. Without a doubt Luis is the man for your job.

Luis Enrique Duran is a man of character and value. He puts his labor before himself and always shows respect and loyalty to his pieres. Music has always been Luis’s strong suit, being it is what it is, i can't see anyone other than Luis getting the job. The audio engineering field is the field best suited for Luis, all if the values this career look for, Luis possesses, the job was constructed for Luis. For anymore information regarding Luis, feel free to contact me at any given time.
