Since sixth grade, the Boy Scouts of America, specifically Troop 39 in Burlington, has played a large role in my personal development and growth. I started at the bottom of the totem pole, and worked my way to the top through years of hard work and dedication to finally reach my childhood goal of being an Eagle Scout. This journey through scouting, and my achieving in attaining this rank, also represents my transition in my life from childhood to adulthood, within both my family and community. As I grew as a scout, I also grew as a person; and although my being an Eagle Scout marked an end to my scouting career, it also marked the beginning to my life as an adult. As an Eagle Scout, I 've learned many skills that proved to be useful in scouting, but also in life as well.

Being an Eagle Scout is important to me because I have learned leadership and many skills through my journey that will benefit me the rest of my life. By becoming an Eagle Scout, it shows a level of commitment that many are unable to achieve. For example, I completed all the required Eagle merit badges as well as all of the alternate required Eagle merit badges including Cycling, Hiking, Swimming, Lifeguarding, and Emergency Preparedness. Becoming an Eagle Scout, I have become a more knowledgeable person through the wide variety of merit badges completed and skills learned. Without the experience of achieving the rank of Eagle Scout, I would never have learned how to be a leader ranging from Patrol Leader to the Crew Leader of a Philmont Expedition.
As a persistent volunteer, my passion to help others has been a significant trait of mine, I am blessed to have many opportunities to help my community since I have been in elementary. I volunteer at any event I am eligible for throughout my community whenever I have the chance. However, I do not limit myself to participating in community events. I help others in need by purchasing food for them or donating the clothes I don 't wear. Looking back at all the volunteer opportunites I take advantage of, Operation Santa will have a special place in my heart because of the joy the activity brings me.

When I was ten years old I my father took me out hunting with him and he told me it was time to. Get your hunters licences so that you could hunt by yourself and get your first buck.
