Dear future host family and language instructors, I have always had a special interest in learning languages and it is thrilling to be considered for an opportunity to learn a language in an immersion atmosphere. In addition to my love of languages, those close to me would say that I am adventurous, easygoing and studious, which I believe would make me a good fit for the program. I 'm not easily upset and I work hard to secure future educational opportunities. I have a strong relationship with my family and friends and they are a major source of support.
By learning about myself, I was able to discover my strengths in school and as a person. I developed communication skills and study tactics that I will continue to strengthen. The knowledge I have acquired through my experiences has allowed me to better myself and to develop the strength and courage to continue to reach my goals. Through perseverance, in my studies and myself, I have been able to pursue my
Becoming an NHS member recognizes my scholastic achievements but, just as important, it gives me the opportunity to continue expanding my leadership skills, strengthening my character for future challenges; all while simultaneously being of service to my community and my school. I am committed to working hard using my skills and talents to make a positive change in the world. Membership in the National Honor Society gives me the unique opportunity to interact with other like-minded students who will develop into the future leaders of society. When I first became aware
I want to be part of such a rewarding career. I feel that the subjects I have studied have provided me with a good foundation of skills and knowledge that I will use on a daily basis as Occupational therapist. In Biology I learned about the human body on a physical level. I found learning how the body works to be fascinating and I look forward to expanding my knowledge even more with this course.
So far high school has taught me the basic knowledge that I will need in life like how to solve problems which do not have straightforward or easy answers, and how to work effectively either with others or alone. In most of my classes critical thinking and analysing is the way to solve problems. I have learned to appreciate the importance of communication through effective speech and debate. High school has taught me many skills that will be helpful later in my career of work ethics, social behavior between peers and leadership. However, the thing I benefited from the most in high school is collaborative working.
Over the course of the semester, I have noticed some small but positive changes in my life and ultimately within myself, as a result of the knowledge that I gained through taking ENGINEER 4A03. I gained a greater and deeper perspective in a large variety of different topics, helping to expand my mental process as well as understand the thought processes of those around me. With every lecture, quiz or assignment, I learned something new and from this new knowledge I discovered changes that I wanted to make in my life for the betterment of myself and the world. To begin, the topic of our very first lecture was Ethical Dilemmas, where we discussed the different stakeholders in a variety of different scenarios. I was introduced to the reality of how one reacts may differ based on their role in the situation or their
I remember when I was first able to glance over the descriptions of all of The Engaged Citizen courses offered at Hendrix College. They all sounded spectacular, but there was one that really drew my attention. The title read “TEC: Identity & The Need to Belong.” Underneath was a description of the course explaining how by understanding the importance of identity and belonging, the course would help students become better engaged citizens and better understand their own identity and belonging. Immediately, I knew this was the course for me, and boy was I right.
By enrolling in some of the most difficult classes at my school, my work ethic and persistence has grown. I have also developed a strong desire to meet the challenges in my life, which will prepare me for the many new challenges later on. With this in mind, I feel that the MCC Honors Diploma would benefit my academic and professional future by demonstrating my capabilities to other schools, and it would also be an amazing reward for my activities and work here at
A key step to this is what I want to do after high school, and ISM seems like a good first step to help me decide. I really want to be a part of this, as it seems like a once in a lifetime experience to me. Working with different people is a big interest for me, as I love being around people, and working with students who have
High school has been an intersecting experience for me. I have learned and experienced a lot of new things. I also accomplished a lot of goals for things that I always wanted to try. Also I will be leaving East Wake Academy with a lasting legacy that will make it easier for other students to pursue opportunities of their own. My time at East Wake Academy has been well valued; being there has allowed me to pursue opportunities that I would have never imagined could happen.
In life, failures sometimes happen. It happens to everyone. However, failures don’t define us as a person, but it builds you as one from those experiences. In my seventeen years, I have experienced my own share of blunders, each teaching me a new lesson. The person who succeeds without first failing hasn't really learned anything; in failures, there can be a learning experience and an opportunity to grow.
