On the other hand, I think it was great to have the experience as long as it made me more money. In the beginning, I started working when I was 17 years old. I worked at a retail store in Bloomfield, New Jersey after school and on the weekend. I began working at an early age because I want to stand on my own feet and I do not want to rely on my family. In the essay “Working at Wendy’s,” Joey Franklin states, “I only applied here because I knew I would get hired, says Sara the first night I work with her.” This situation related to my experience when I am hunting the job.
The story says that “The Association was a group of people who helped farm workers have better rights and better pay.” Chavez and his supporters successfully improved the lives of farmers and farm workers. The story states, “Through boycotts, hunger strikes, and marches, they made a difference for everyone.”These days he still inspires community activists and politicians. The story states, “His speeches about justice, community, and education still resonate…” In 2008 Barack Obama adopted Chavez’s motto “Si, Se Puede.”The story says, “Barack Obama adopted it as his campaign slogan.” Obama used it because he wanted to inspire people like Chavez. Senator Robert F. Kennedy described him as one of the best heroic figures of all time.” Cesar Chavez was more effective than Nelson Mandela. Even though Mandela became president, he didn’t do as much as Chavez did.
Another instance of social capital being beneficial in Author Wes Moore’s life is when he was granted a scholarship to attend John Hopkins University. Due to his Military school experience, overall admirable progress in life and the right connections, he was able to speak with the assistant director of admissions via his advisor at Valley Forge Junior College. Now, this instance of social capital would be lost on some but not Author Wes Moore, he states; “having an advocate on the inside -someone who had gotten to know me and understood my story on a personal
Juan was very proud that DeAndre went the path that Juan suggested. This could be seen when Juan said, "He called to tell me that Big D [DeAndre] was doing great while he was training him at the APD academy. And that these past few months, Big D really committed himself of becoming the police officer he always wanted to be." When people give up harmful things to do what they 've always wanted, it would make anyone proud. The tragedy struck when Juan got another phone call about DeAndre.
Serving in the military is a family tradition. I am grateful for all the opportunities that this country gives to its citizens and I felt like joining the military was a great way to give back to it. I took an oath of justice in defense of the liberties; to preserve peace and to calm the winds of war (Scott, 1). Being a veteran is now something that is part of me and describes myself. Since I joined the military straight out of high school, I decided to go back into school and pursue a career in business marketing.
Bono describes this as “Some people build fences to keep people out… and other people build fences to keep people in. Rose wants to hold onto you all. She loves you”(2.1.30-2.1.32). What Bono says about the fence is what I believe to be the central theme and is the most important passage in the play. Rose loves Troy and stood by him for eighteen years and did everything she could to make him a happy man.
I thought to myself, I had to earn money, in order to buy a iPhone, but I told my parents thanks for the money. They told me “if you keeping doing what your doing, you will be getting allowances each month”. So I told myself, “Time to save up, I can do it”. I kept working so hard for the iPhone that I wanted and wasn't going to give up. Every morning, through Monday to Friday I went to school, I went to school but after when I got out from school, I had to
My journey of reading and writing throughout my life is one started during my childhood in elementary school. Even though reading and writing have been a struggle for myself, I am still continuing to try to increase my reading and writing levels. As a child, I had difficulty in reading. Because of this, the school required extra classes for reading. It was not until my senior year in high school that I wrote my first thesis paper.
On the school-level, I commend myself as a good leader being a class officer of the Student Council in my Freshman and Sophomore years of High School. As a Student Council member, I need to promote activities, such as Spring Fest and SpeakOut, as well as make sure the students’ voices are conveyed to the Administration. I have helped organize events such as SpeakOut last year and the upcoming IdeaCon this year. Moreover, I am in charge of my grade’s finances, including fundraising to donate to a charity and fees for Prom. A few fundraising events in which our council has carried out include a Tie-Dye booth, countless bake sales, raffles, and the Color Fest.
Throughout those years, I have worked several half-marathons, which helped out those events that needed volunteers. I also worked several hours volunteering at the local Hennepin county library in 8th grade, which was one of my favorite community service experiences. The Feed My Starving Children is also an organization that I have helped out in the past few years. During these community service experiences, I was focused and I put in a great deal of effort since I knew that my contributions would directly benefit the community. If accepted into the National Honor Society, I know that I will contribute towards community service projects with much

He absolutely loves his experience so far, and it has enabled him to thrive in his education.
During my time with the club I often met with Kiwanis (A organization of volunteers), soon I learned that Kiwanis created The Key club to give high school students an opportunity to serve their community. I also uncovered that The Georgia Institute of Technology also enjoys a Kiwanis club. In terms of service I believe that through community service, I may make a positive contribution to Georgia Tech upon arrival. I am very excited to join Kiwanis in college. I have always served locally, but I am exuberant to assist broader
First off, I am humbled to be considered for membership of the National Honor Society. In my opinion on the foundation of the four pillars of NHS the FPC NHS chapter will benefit from my membership because I will bring intellect, drive, leadership, character, dedication to serve my community, honesty, respect, pride, discipline, compassion and among many other qualities a sense of humor. As an active member of my school and community I work hard to serve not just myself but those around me. I am an active volunteer throughout Flagler County as previously stated. I am a teenage volunteer at the Florida Hospital Flagler.
