I believe I should be selected for the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Scholarship because I am not the typical high school senior. When it comes to my education, I go about and beyond expectations. My desire to do my best in school shows consistently year after year. I put in equal amount of effort when it comes to my after school activities and community involvement. I was told at a young age that education was the key to success and from that point on I made it my main priority not to be the average student among those that settle for less but to be a outstanding student that rises to every occasion to take advantage of my education.

Diane successfully goes through with the pregnancy, but Julia’s doctors predict that she will not live much more than six years.

After our interview I now understand the why and it makes perfectly good sense. I then began to wonder what strategies could we, as a school, provide for our parents to help them support their child’s vocabulary development?
Through examination of the previous sophomores’ advice and my own predictions of the year to come, I have formulated a definitive set of goals I would like to accomplish in Algebra II Honors this year. Looking back at my past year in Geometry Honors, I have recognized many improvements I need to make to my personal studying habits to reach my full potential and excel in this course. Last year, I was slow to ask for help, many times waiting until it was too late to come to my teacher and ask them to explain the concepts on which I was still a bit fuzzy. This year I am making it one of my personal goals to work harder to fully comprehend the mathematical concepts and ask for assistance as soon as I start noticing a problem. I also would like to make it a goal to stay much more organized this

Problems, some are dealt with easier than others, but everyone has them. How can overcoming all of these complications change our lives? Should we just ignore the ones we do not want to solve, or do we need to solve all of them? Some problems can seem so infuriating and such an inconvenience to have at a specific time in your life, but those problems can also precisely be the reason your life is as easy or as difficult as it is. I have come across multiple impediments in my almost 16 years of living, and as much as I would like to blame God for them, or grow super upset and irritated that I ended up being the one stuck with these issues, they all help me develop as a person in one way or another.
