As a student, I have set high standards for my future, focusing on my studies and looking forward to college. School is my number one priority although I do a few extracurricular activities; Key Club, CEC, Youth Group, and French Club. I also enjoy volunteer work; visiting elderly people at local nursing homes, helping out at The Pink Lemonade, benefit
I am honored to be selected as an applicant of the Westlake High School National Honor Society. I would seek admittance to the National Honor Society because I wish to give back to the community and being part of this organization will assist me in my career path. The National Honor Society is built upon four pillars which are character, scholarship, leadership, and service. I believe I posses the characteristics embodied by the four pillars of the National Honor Society because I have solid study habits such as reviewing my notes and paying close attention in class. I am a well mannered student who always comes to class on time and prepared to learn.
As a student at Catalina Foothills High School, I believe I have lived up to the tenet of service and display ideals that the National Honors Society seek for in a student and citizen in society. If I am granted membership into the society, I believe I can contribute my qualities to the community as a member of Catalina Foothills National Honor Society and demonstrate the highest standards of behavior to represent our school honorably. To begin, I would like to establish the importance school and grades plays in my life. As of freshman year, my GPA has been a 3.8, but it constantly continues to grow and improve. My grades are a top priority in my life, because I’m aware that in order to succeed in life you need to be knowledgeable of how the world works.
Coming from a different culture but still embracing the Christian values that Loma Linda University emphasizes, I believe that my unique background and personal experiences distinguish my application from others. Growing up in Egypt, where the gap between social classes is significant, my parents always stressed the need to prioritize service into my life encouraging me to dedicate time in volunteering and helping others. As a result, my experience has grown from volunteering to serve as a camp leader for orphans in the summer to participating in international dental service trips. These involvements would allow me to use my skills in organizing missions trips at Loma Linda. Being a Coptic Orthodox Christian enables me to add diversity to the
My high school career at James Madison High School has prepared me to be successful as a student at Radford University because of how competitive it is. Parents, teachers, and friends are always pushing me to be the best that I can be, whether that be with my education, social life, or relationships. The faculty and students at James Madison High school have given me a deeper view of the world. I have been exposed to many different ethnic groups and situations, good and bad, which have helped prepare me for the 'real world ' at college.
The school I have attended is a college prep school, and seems did a good job in preparing me for college. This school has taught me time management, responsibility, and to be respectful to everyone. These three things have prepared me to being a successful member of the community. I’ve learned time management by, taking honors classes throughout high school. These classes are more rigorous than the regulars classes offered at my school.
When I finished middle school, I had two choices: to go to my large home high school, or to go to a small high school that is relatively far from my home. Although I still had my doubts, I eventually decided to go to the smaller high school, William Smith. During my time at William Smith, I have learned about myself as much as I learned about my academic subjects. For example, I have come to realize that I enjoy close relationships with my teachers and peers, and that I perform at my best when I am in collaborative study environments. When I first learned about Colorado College through QuestBridge and later through my high school counselor, I was excited to know that Colorado College emphasizes the same values of collaboration and lifelong
There are many activities and classes at Wooster that are of interest to me. One I admire the most is the first-year seminar, where you explore texts, their interpretations, and your own writing. A class like this would be really important to me because I didn 't have something like this in high school. It would have been helpful for me with my transition from middle school to high school and I would take full advantage of it if given the chance to at Wooster. There are aspects about high school that I look for in a college, and the most significant is diversity.
My top 3 choices for engineering schools are UTK, Georgia Tech, and Vanderbilt University. One main reason for choosing these schools is because they each offer degrees up to a Ph.D. I am applying to UTK because I know it is a great school and has amazing professors. I love the campus and believe it would be a great school for me. I plan to apply to Georgia Tech because it is a huge well-known engineering school, and I believe it would provide me with many opportunities for growth.
The only way to grow and prosper is to accept everyone as they are and work together to reach your common goal. This is something that UT does very well and I know I can continue to push this initiative. Upon graduation from the Haslam College of Business I plan to enroll in the two-year MBA program. Being able to earn my masters at UT will be incredibly beneficial for me as I begin my career right here in Tennessee. I cannot wait until I have the opportunity to give back to the university that has already done so much for me.
