I believe that a leader is someone who knows how to properly guide others, as well as rely on others when needed. I also believe in leading by example as the bible says in Titus 2:7, “In everything set them an example by doing what is good...” I believe that how I behave, how I interact with teachers, others adults, and students can provide a positive influence for my peers. I hold several student leadership roles at school. I am a member of STUCO (student council) and DECA (Distributive Education Clubs of America), a global organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality and management in high schools and colleges. I am also a member of two mentoring groups, Dulles Diamonds and PALS (Peer Assistance &Leadership), which provide peer positive support to address issues like bullying, low achievement, at-risk youth, and behavior problems.

The core values empowerment, service, excellence, catholic identity and respect represent the community of Marywood.

More specifically, the novel strongly conveys the value empowerment. “Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou introduces the value of respect in a beautifully displayed poem.
Challenging for me because I am documenting a place/time in someone’s life that can have an effect on the rest of their life.

This internship that I have embarked is not just to fulfill a requirement at school, but to better me as a person and professional.

Fr. Pedro Arrupe’s motto “educating men and women for others “sends a strong message about putting others before yourself which is key in having a fulfilling, complete life. Through his statement, I believe Fr. Pedro Arrupe is clear about the Jesuit beliefs in building an educational foundation that encourages students to conduct unselfish acts to promote kindness above all else. Throughout my years at Bellarmine College Preparatory the Jesuit focus has been to give back to the others who need help, to better others is the ultimate goal.

Princeton is an institution, which has turned passionate students into passionate change makers, making positive influence on sociopolitical movements at home and abroad. The University and I share a common value; a sense of duty to create positive change in a myriad of environments, big or small. Determination and commitment is key to making a difference and this is especially evident regarding the author of this speech, Woodrow Wilson. Wilson’s resilience to complete the speech despite his physical obstacles exemplifies true strength of a leader. I have worked to make strides and become a leader through my advocacy work for the duration of my high school years.
While waiting for my competitions to start, I practiced with my coaches and thought to myself, “I can do this, I can do this, I can do this,” hopefully trying to increase my confidence. Finally, it was my turn to go the competition with butterflies in my stomach, and a big burden on me. My partner Justin, a ninth grader, approached me and said, “Don’t worry we got this, just focus and you’ll be all right.” As we were done with our test, it was our turn to show our Hovercraft. I powered it up, and I could feel the strong air pushing against my face from the blazing force our hovercraft went. The hovercraft passed the finish line and got a good time of 0.9 seconds.
It was heartbreaking to watch all of the girls I made the team with my freshmen year leave me behind. My depressed mood was soon replaced with frustration.

My determination paid off immensely, because I was asked to be a swing player for varsity.

My academic attitude, I believe, is important for a Resident Assistant to hold because as a RA, one should be a role model for the other members of the hall. While I do take my academics seriously, I also understand the value of communication and social stability while in college. I am very capable of delivering emotional support to any future residents that I may have. Due to my position on the Monmouth College Forensics Team, I, in no way would consider myself shy and have a very warm and outgoing personality that I feel would be able to help residents feel at ease. I value organization in my everyday life and I feel that my daily management skills would
Being a part of the National Honor Society would be a privilege. I have been chosen as a candidate due to my academic excellence, but I understand it takes more than just a good GPA. I believe my abilities to be a leader, serve others, and express good character meet the standards set by NHS. The service opportunities that I will have as a part of NHS is what I look forward to the most. I’ve had good experience volunteering to serve others in the past.
The purpose of a liberal arts college is to educate students to be well rounded. It teaches them how to think and how to learn.
