JordenR99 1 / 1 Feb 15, 2017 #1My name is Jorden Rosenboom. I'm from Blum, Texas, and I'm going to be graduating in May from Blum High School. I'll be going to TSU in Fall of 2017. I'd like to tell you a little about my achievements, interests, and my goals.basketball, art and psychologyI have been on the varsity basketball team since I was a sophomore, and each year we've made it to the playoffs. Sophomore year, I got 1st team all district and junior year I got 2nd team all region. Both my junior and senior year I was on the cross country team. Then, my junior year, we got third at regionals, which qualified us to compete at state. This year we made it to state by getting first at the regional meet. At state, which was held in Round Rock, Texas, we finished third. That was the first time Blum had ever medalled at State for cross country. We recently got softball here my sophomore year and I've played both years, we were in outlaw last year but I believe we can win district and I'm hoping to make it farther in playoffs.In my free time I enjoy drawing and painting. I've taught myself how to draw and paint since third grade. All the hard work and practice to be good at it has gotten me a couple of prizes. I won the competition to design our city flag, so now my drawing is part of our small town's history. I was also asked to help collaborate on a drawing of our old gym because we are tearing it down and we made a poster and sold t-shirts in memory of it. I've also spent time doing little things for the church I go to. I've helped them design a few things like, signs and trophies. I was involved in Habitat for Humanity my freshman and sophomore year. When I volunteered, we had to go paint and help fix up some houses that were being built. I spent approximately 16 hours working for Habitat.Starting high school, I really enjoyed art. At the time, my dream was to be an art major once I got to college. However, as time has passed, I've developed a love for listening to my friends and helping them to the best of my ability. The more problems I see in other people's lives and my own the more I want to help people conquer their situations. Not just by ignoring a problem but by suggesting different solutions. As a result of my fascination with assisting people, I've become captivated by psychology and the possibility of becoming a therapist. Self psychology and Interpersonal Psychotherapy are two of the main specialties that peak my interest. That being said, I have been accepted to Tarleton as a psychology major. My goal is to complete my bachelor's degree, and then go on to get a master's in Psychology.
