Her goal when she started four years ago in college was to graduate with honors.
Now she is awaiting the month of May as graduation is inching closer. Soon she is on her way to obtaining her degree and the very goal she set is now a reality. A goal set by Texas Southern University (TSU) student Kendra Pete.
Kendra, a senior and journalism major, is one to balance her things in life and as a student. In college, she does everything the average college student does, only to go beyond average. She does her best to attend every class day. When there are assignments colliding with projects, she manages and plans out what is due and what has to be done, which is honor-student material and she happens to be one, as a matter of fact. She is also a member of The National Society of Collegiate Scholars. Kendra, because of how she performs in college, is considered as the ideal TSU student.
Kendra describes an ideal TSU student as “a highly, self-motivated individual who sets goals and accomplishes them.”
In addition, Kendra said that an ideal TSU student also “utilizes their resources such as textbooks, teachers, and the library.”
Resources are there when a student needs them. Kendra is that type to seize those resources given if and when she needs that extra help.
She believes that she sets an example to other students.
“I have always been the type of person to take care of my business.”
Throughout class after class at TSU, Kendra has handled them with patience and no hesitation.
Also, the people she is surrounded by adds to that example. Some of the students on campus are just like her, even her friends.
“I have a great group of friends that do just as much, if not, more than me.”
Surrounded by a great group of people can influence one’s ability to focus on the goals at hand. It has now gone to the point where all other students want to be like her.
If a student wants to be like her, Kendra’s advice is one to follow.
“Remain focused,” she said.
“If you’re not distracted, you’ll be able to accomplish goals you set for yourself.”
Goals that a student sets for themselves can be achieved through planning and not let negativity get in the way of those goals. He or she does their best to have those goals accomplished. Take Kendra Pete for instance. Known as an intelligent young woman and an amazingly, brilliant scholar with a grade point average (GPA) of 3.94, Kendra has earned the title as the ideal TSU student.
