Micro Blog: Melanie Wilkerson

When thinking of what “Student of the Term” means to me, I was having a hard time putting it in to words because it's more than just my accomplishment. I've had so much support that it belongs to those people also. When we think of achievement in our life a lot of time we forget about the people that help us on a daily basis. When I wake up every morning at 5am that means so does the rest of my household when they don't have to, and as we all know every minute of sleep counts. Your family may also sacrifice financially because they want to see your dreams fulfilled. They may have to work one hour longer because you have to work one hour less. When I decided to enroll at The Chefs Academy I had no idea how much it was going to be my life line to my future. I remember the night before my first class I was going through some folders in a closet to look for paper and found a note of encouragement my grandmother gave me about 10 years ago. She would give me little snippets every month for as long as I can remember, but this was the most significant for me because it sums up what “Student of the Term” is for me.

Essence of Life
Watch your thoughts, for they become words.

Choose your words, for they become actions.

Understand your actions, for they become habits.

Study your habits, for they will become your character.

Develop your character, for it becomes your destiny.
