My life has been a struggle at times, but my hard work, self-confidence, and eternal passion for my education and my community will outstandingly prepare me to be a successful member of this community at East Carolina University. I have had many different educational experiences that I feel have been beneficial for me. These things include Advance Placement and Honors classes, clubs, and volunteering for different organizations. I am a hardworking and challenging student, who likes to take Advance Placement and Honors classes and challenge herself. I have taken 3 AP classes previously, and currently enrolled in 2 for senior year of high school.
Now I work two jobs and go to school. Never would I have thought that I would be working two jobs as a senior in high school but I am. Although I do get tired, exhausted and overwhelmed I do not give up. I push myself, sometimes I may over do it but, I always try to be the best person I can be. I enjoy my jobs, I enjoy making people happy and helping people.
I am very passionate about this, which is why I have decided to volunteer at the Mercadito every Saturday afternoon. In addition, I recently graduated from Lakewood High School, a school where most of the student body is white. There is a very small group of students that are usually left behind, the English as a Second Language. That 's why I decided to create a club that gives the ESL community a safe place to ensure their academic success. I also have a personal connection to women who suffer because of economic hardships.
During the last year and a half at ECC I have been able to start fulfilling my education goals by getting a good education and find out what I want to go to college for. The college has helped me in many ways not only with my education. One example of this is I have been able to work the whole time that I have been attending classes. This allowed me to save enough money that now when I transfer to NIU in January with my associates degree, I will be able to pay for it in full without taking out student loans. This was one of my fears be for going into college was that I was going to be in debt after.
Before 10th grade, I had an insufficiently rigorous course load to yield a competitive GPA. After taking the most rigorous classes for a year and boosting my GPA, I have decided to help my classmates tackle the competition at my school by helping them organize their schedules and classes for future academic years. I have reached out to these classmates through class projects and tutoring sessions. So far, I have helped about five teenagers become competitive. I have also frequently volunteered at a local food pantry.
Each year, student council has become more complicated but I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I have been in charge of planning a United Services blood drive, the entire homecoming parade, our school 's coronation ceremony for homecoming, the Junior Prom, and I am currently in charge of planning the graduation ceremony. These projects were only the ones I led but I also have assisted in the majority of the initiatives completed by our high school student council. I could not complete these projects without the hard work and dedication of many of my fellow students. I think the hardest part of working on big projects was delegating; I am often worried that if I don’t complete something myself it will not get done.
As a candidate of National Honor Society, I possess the qualities as it will include leadership and character. I have taken the most difficult honor courses since the beginning of highschool and still maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout. Also, I have joined clubs to expand my knowledge of certain areas, which include DECA and Spanish Club. To add, I have been to two competitions, including this year 's Academic Team. Furthermore, I lead some of my classes, teaching them how do some of the work while having patience and confidence as I help them.
Through my four years of high school by being in clubs, sports, and other activities I have had many great high school experiences but my most valuable experience i have experienced in high school has to be becoming a peer assistant for students with disabilities my senior year. The first day of becoming a peer assistant really changed my life. During the end of the junior year i was trying to figure out what it was i wanted to study in college that has to do with helping children and by the end of the first week of becoming a peer assistant i knew exactly what i wanted to do. As a peer assistant I help the students with disabilities with their daily school jobs such as helping take down the flags, putting out bus signs, fill up paper for
I am writing this paper after successfully completing my first half year of college on campus at Dakota Wesleyan University. I have done numerous things here during the fall semester of 2015 that have helped me mature and ultimately grow into a stronger person. My Learn Strong 101 class taught me some essentials that helped me with getting through the semester. One of the first things that I completed in this class was campus clarity. I think that this was a very helpful program.
There are many different things that can impact students in their high school years. Whether these things are friends, activities, or the sports they participate in they all impact the student. Many opportunities are presented to students in high school, although not many impacts the student beyond high school, I believe this opportunity will impact me forever. I would love to be a part of the Early College Program this coming spring. I believe the program will do nothing but help me grow and strive to be a better student and continue being involved.
Yes, I chose a school that would prepare me for my career. The school I chose provided multiple programs and scholarships that are relevant to me. The total hours spent on my project would be close to around 70-75 hours. To manage my time effectively, I worked everyday in class up until the bell getting my assignments done. The dates assignments were given, I would get those assignments done that day.
Since being enrolled in college I have been able to maintain a grade point average of a 3.4 or better for the two semesters that I have attended. Through the ups and downs that came with each semester, I have learned the value of putting in hard work and what it takes to achieve something one desires. Additionally, my academic performance has earned me spots in both the Alpha Lambda Delta National Honor Society and the Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society. Furthermore, this summer I was able to intern with a pipeline design company, EN Engineering. This was a significant experience for me as it opened up my mind to the possibilities that engineers have to create a better world for everyone.
With having, to compete mentally, but also interact personally with my teammates and other teams everyday helped mold me into who I am today. This year as a leader in robotics and on the TSA chapter leadership team has given me qualities of project planning and group mentorship that I couldn’t have received somewhere else. I participated in all these extracurricular and to take AP and Pre-AP classes all four years. Receiving 3’s and high on all of my AP exams and managing a 3.0 and higher
First of all, I want to express my gratitude for the opportunity to apply for the Clarence A. Hawkes Scholarship. With the cost of a college education increasing to new heights, scholarships become all the more important. I have participated in numerous and varied extracurricular activities throughout my life, and all these extracurriculars take up a considerable amounts of time. For instance, most days last Fall I would arrive at the school at 7:00 for marching band, have class from 8:15-3:20, cross country from 3:30-5:15 and then musical practice from 6:30-9:00. These time commitments taught me to manage my time and to never take weekends for granted.
“I feel happy, and I feel confident, and I feel like I don’t have to hide myself anymore.” 15 year old Renata said after her surgery. Renata is now comfortable with the way she looks, and can be more social at school, causing her depression and anxiety to go away. A few months after the surgery, Renata’s mother said her daughter was happier than she’d seen her in years. The
