The clubs provide many opportunities including meeting new students, learn from others, and exploring things. I become a better communicator through presentations, speeches, and conversations in these experiences. The clubs help me to learn how to manage my time and to be connected to students and even the world. In addition, during my senior year, the International Club elected me as their President. As President, I became more adept at thinking, helping, and working which helped grow my leadership skills.
I am honored to be eligible amongst the meritorious students who are being considered for induction within the National Honors Society.

What really touched my heart is the fact that though these students have disabilities, they still had a passion for life and an excitement to learn. I want to be a part of that.

There have been various magnificent leaders throughout history, such as Martin Luther King Jr., Sojourner Truth, Nelson Mandela, and Eleanor Roosevelt. I thrive to follow in the footsteps of these phenomenal leaders and get closer to this goal everyday by practicing my leadership skills in my home, school, and community. Demonstrating leadership at home has proven to be life-changing, I’ve taken on the position of being a leader at home because I am the oldest child, therefore, I put the responsibility upon myself to teach my younger sisters the ropes of life, I also guide my parents to being healthier and better versions of themselves. My sisters look up to me as their role model and I live a life of example by exhibiting that self-respect, academic responsibility,
“The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.” Ray L. Wilber’s statement is one I came to realize after becoming a summer camp counselor for girls ages seven to twelve. Only in my first few days as a counselor, my eyes were forced open to see the greatness inside each of my campers. For some children these gifts only need nurtured; others require assistance in uncovering their distinction. Here in lies my passion: to convince each child I meet of his or her infinite potential. Each child contains a gift vital to the well-being of the surrounding world.
I believe this goal is realistic due to my preconception of the career, love for helping others and experience. I've always loved helping other, so when I made it to middle school I joined an organization called builders club were we gave back to the community in various
My favorite part of being a counselor was getting to know the campers and being the best counselor to them. I have attended the JCC since I was in Kindergarten, I always wanted to be in Habimah and when I got the chance, I never wanted to leave. Unfortunately, there comes a point when you have to graduate and move on. My way of moving on was becoming a counselor and giving back to the campers what was always given to me. This summer really impacted me as a person because seeing the smiles on everyone’s faces, taught me that community service does change this world for the
I will help motivate my peers to take on more community and school service projects. I am not afraid to break out of my comfort zone to benefit those around me. The past two years I have worked to come out of my comfort zone and try new things. This lead me to many clubs and extracurricular activities that I know enjoy. For example, I am an active member of the FPC band.
Every moment is a memorable part of the journey of life. I have always appreciated the value of giving to others because I believe that just being able to lend a hand to others, no matter how trivial it may be, is what makes life worth living. However, my desire to help people started when I began working with children as a teacher’s assistant. It would instill in me a lesson that I would never forget. As my first step at trying something different, in the beginning I was tense, unsure of what to do.
The Morehead Honors Program opens many doors for the receivers. Several magnificent programs and internships are offered to students that are part of this wonderful program; these include an internship in Frankfort, an intensive summer research program for students interested in medicine or dentistry, a commitment to host a show on the campus television station for a year, and a year-long volunteering experience working with children in after-school programs. Honestly, the volunteering experience in after-school programs for children interests me enormously. Along with building onto my existing skills, I will develop new skills, grow as a person due to the experience, and face my fears and anxieties. I believe I would thoroughly enjoy that
The International Summer Camps are very enlightening because they have allowed me to not only be healthy and take part in physical activity; but to embrace my culture, assist youth in acknowledging the importance of education, take part in team oriented workshops, and listen to key speakers that overcame great adversity. I have learned about the importance of assisting others and placing a grin on another person’s face, which is my primary motive for becoming a family practitioner. I have a desire to major in biology, minor in public health, and declare pre-med and I will continue to place forth my utmost effort as I embark on my
