On Live Now!

Outstanding and Inspiring SNHU Student TV Campaign

This is the questionnaire I was asked to fill out by my advisor after he entered me into the chance for this program. Email from my advisor (leaving his name out for privacy) You may have recently seen an email talking about how Southern New Hampshire University is considering heading out on another cross-country bus tour to meet students and celebrate their successes. They are looking for outstanding and inspiring SNHU students, like you, to share their stories in our next TV campaign. My Answers to the Questionnaire After receiving so many injuries from domestic violence (where my teenage son had initially convinced me to return to school and the only easy thing I thought I could learn would be music) I outgrew my local community college. Always being referred to as a talented writer by my 8th grade teacher, I thought to attempt SNHU's Creative Writing degree for a second time-initially doubting myself at the first attempt. I ended up surprisingly exceeding in the first term, where years previously following my initially injuries, I was told that I would never retain information anymore. Then when inducted into 'The National Society of Collegiate Scholars' through SNHU, this reiterated my chances of success in life. THANK YOU SNHU!! ###

Olga Phoenix Leads Us to Our Infinite Dreams

I learned to make wish lists and lists of gratitude. And the one that I recall mostly right now is to thank Olga Phoenix for helping me to learn how to come outside of myself and smell the flowers to bring my own relief from helping others. I'm thankful I was reminded to be thankful for what I have and don't have to give life full, healthy yearning. Olga even includeds a colorful chart with many choices for us to choose from to bring these healthy feelings to us in all the needed necessary areas for fulfillment in our lives. Being positive and looking ahead isn't enough for any of us. We need to take physical actions towards ourselves and our bodies in daily care to be fulfunctioning for ourselves and others. As a victim and an advocate I know first-hand how important it is to reach out on both ends, and how helpful affirmations and life-coach healing is-these methods saved me. Olga's sample vision board helps lead us on a path to our infinite dreams. Victim Advocate's Guide to Wellness by Olga Phoenix Available at Amazon Reviewed by Lori Finnila aka Lori Jean ###

I Really Like What I Wrote Here:

I really like what I wrote here: In Class-searching for a topic for a research paper. While doing the Module One exercise I was able to narrow down the publishing topic. I came up with more of 'Traditional Publishing vs. Self-Publishing' or 'Self-Publishing is Better than Traditional Publishing.' Another good one I found was 'Most Writers Will Not Be Published in their Lifetime.' This was not meant to be cynical, but where I have a short instructional class on this, and have even iReported a free non-vetted CNN report on this approach and how to do it, I feel this could also change people's dreams for the better-there is so much on this. I'm still confused which topic statement to use yet I have many supporting topics for this idea. Possibly the last topic statement is my thesis statement and then use 'Self-Publishing is Better Than Traditional Publishing.' There is a great argument there, but you know... with my preliminary research I found most people are leaning, 60-40, to self-publishing-even the professional writer. And what do you think about Jennifer's idea? It's starting to draw me in. There are competitions at schools when training for music that I think can be eliminated to learn better. And though I could be accused of being jealous of the other competitors towards this stance, I really feel even this energy shouldn't be found in a place of learning. We only have so much time and money to learn and get support before we're thrown out there. We need support to fall back on to be ready for the real cruel world-there's plenty of time for that. I know I used my 8th grade teacher for support in writing when she was my only memory to a supporting link to surviving a really tough time in my life. Certainly more feedback from you would help on my final decision. Thanks!!
MAKE SURE I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION HERE:I've found this is the only thing that works.
