One of my dreams is to be part of The National Honors Society and be part of the family; I am already part of The Spanish Language Honors Society and want to further build upon my academic career. I have demonstrated leadership, service, character, and scholarship and I hope to be inducted into the society. Even after I get inducted into the society, I will continue to volunteer in my society; as of this summer, I hope to be volunteering at Atlanticare. Volunteering in my community has been a great experience and I can not wait to extend it with a new chapter of my High School career. I am beyond thankful for being part of the first chapter of The National Honors Society and hope you will consider my
No home, not much food, just surviving. These numbers are just in America. There is over 7 billion people on this planet and almost half of a billion are homeless, only in America. These numbers astonish me every time I read them. People become homeless for a variety of reasons but the main cause is lack of money or employment.
Being a resident of Bergen County, New Jersey, I visit New York City frequently and unfortunately witness homelessness every time. It breaks my heart to see people living and begging on the streets, but it really hits me hard when I see a homeless a young adult. This summer I also watched an old documentary directed by Martin Bell called Streetwise, about homeless teens in Seattle. It followed about five kids surviving on the streets, but mainly had a focus on a 14-year-old prostitute whose name on the street was “Tiny”. After watching this documentary about kids trying to get by while living on the street, I began to research everything I could find about the homeless youth and found it very sad and interesting, if only there was something
Since I was a little girl I have always been told to be on top of my studies and to go do what I love most. However, with college I am able to take on and obtain new knowledge to further my studies and do what I love most. I see college as another stepping stone into a great life and future. Being able to attend college is a blessing, this will help me understand and see the different perspective of the world around me. The final reason that led me to college is to experience the" life of as a college student".
On land, there is a different problem. Hundreds of thousands of people go to bed every night without food. We not only want to fix both of these issues, we need to. BlueGold is our non-profit organization that helps homeless people living near coastal cities receive food while collecting trash from the beach. Our goal is to not only clean up the ocean, but also help feed those who go hungry due to monetary incapabilities.
At the age of nine most kids are spending their time outside at the playground with their friends, when I was nine I got to experienced what is was being homeless. Growing up I never knew my home was dysfunctional because my mother did everything she could to shield me and my siblings from the reality of that was actually happening, until she couldn’t anymore. My father was in and out of jail and struggling with drugs and alcohol, till this day I don’t think my mom really knew I understood what that meant but it was hard not to even at such a young age. I knew exactly what was happening, I remember the sleepless nights of hearing my parents screaming and yelling back and forth, and the cops showing up to arrest my dad. One day my mom had enough and decided she wasn’t going to put our family though it anymore, so she packed out bags and we left.

In conclusion, how everything that Grant did and decided on worked out to define his own destiny. Grant took control over his destiny by making the decision to go to college and become a teacher.

I cringe at the thought of this happening to me now at 21 much less at the age of 18 and while I was still in high school. But for teenagers that are aging out of the foster care system at the age of 18, this can potentially be a real life scenario for them. I volunteer once a month for the Obion County Foster Care Association. Basically, I help watch over roughly around 25 to 30 foster kids while their parent’s undergo a mandatory meeting. If you sit down and talk to a teenager who is currently in
