Even now as a senior in high school I struggle with moments of immense shyness. I had become accustomed to falling into the background so when I was asked by a teacher to join the student council my senior year of high school, my instinct was to say no and let the opportunity go by me. I decided to take a leap and it is already a life-changing experience for me. Student Council is an experience I feel will greatly impact my life goals and college education. It is important considering it has helped with my organizational skills, time and project management, and idea sharing.
From the start of high school, I have been a proactive student by being involved, demonstrating character, and overcoming challenges. I believe I have taken the initiative to make not only changes within community but also better understand my aspirations in life. Moreover, my involvement in community services has assisted a diversity of individuals in various events. Certain service clubs allowed me to realize the needs my community pertains, comprehend various cultures, and establish a level of respect toward their heritage. Students Together Organizing Peace is a club that has impacted me mentally in terms that they shaped my mindset by making me become conscious of my actions and realize the magnitude of problems my communities face.
I feel as though I could benefit National Honor Society through my leadership qualities, willingness to dedicate my time to the community, positive character, and perseverance to succeed in academics.

Additionally, one can see that it is important that I take time out of my day to serve others as I devote two hours each weekend to volunteer. My academic standing is also of importance to me, believing that consistency in school is a crucial factor in achieving success. I challenge myself by choosing to take any honors or AP classes available and striving to put forth utmost effort in each class.
I have met ARSA LI grade 1 graduates, and they told me that ARSA LI had shaped them to great student-leaders. I do not know how but that is why I am eager to join the Leaders’ Institute. I want to learn how this training program would enhance the leadership skills of its participants. If I were chosen for ARSA LI, I would try to learn the various leadership styles and try to make my own, so that I could give something back to this organization, that has given me lots of opportunities to grow mentally and socially, by providing someone who is competent for ARSA related projects such as Senior’s sendoff, ARSA IAC, ARSAFEST, and more. It would be a great honor to help ARSA be the most competent organization in the whole
I am everyone’s biggest cheerleader naturally and I consider myself flexible in my decision making. Since I am such a cheerleader for everyone in my school, I see how being positive and an active participant in the leadership, helps to maintain an inclusive educational environment leading to success for all students in that environment. My job experiences have helped me learn to be a member of a collaborative team and while I am competitive at heart, when it comes to my students and inclusion, it’s all about what will help them. I am adaptable and organized, which can be helpful in a collaborative environment where things are changing to fit whatever hiccup or challenge arises. I know where my strengths are and I see
The Core Competencies and the values are the foundation of Social Work, and it is my duty to reflect the foundation in my intern experience.

During my undergraduate education I had the privilege to serve as the student representative on Appalachian State University’s BSW curriculum committee. I enjoyed being able to voice my opinions about how the BSW curriculum could grow and mature. With that being said, I have looked extensively at UNC Charlotte 's MSW curriculum. I appreciate the emphasis on both work with individuals at the micro level as well as organizations at the marco level. This curriculum aligns well with my interest in working with families.
Before college, I was focused on myself and what others thought of me; however, since I started college I have been more focused on my family and not worried about other’s opinions of me. Before college started, I was what some people would call the blossom. I would talk to everyone about different kinds of topics and I would try to strike conversations with anyone in order to make more friends.
