It is an honor for me to be invited to join such an exclusive society of distinguished people. I am excited about being part of the National Honor Society in view of the limitless opportunities and the strong support system it represents for me. I consider myself a scholar, by reason of the fact that I thrive to excel in my academics and accomplish my best in any achievable way. Through my years as a student I have worked on helping my classmates and my community in any way I possibly can. By offering equine therapy to participating in the climate reality project I have demonstrated leadership and service to my community.
My reasons for wanting to serve Peace Corps Volunteer are personal and intellectual. First of all, I want to share the knowledge I have acquired throughout my life by making myself available and becoming part of something bigger. I’ve had the opportunity to attend school and I recently completed a graduate degree; this has been a great accomplishment not only for me, but for my family as well.

I actually agree with the National Association of Social Workers' Standards for Cultural Competence in Social Work Practice. Becoming a social work, people have to have self-awareness, cross-cultural knowledge/skills, professional education, and leadership to advance cultural competence.

A True role model is a person who possess those qualities that we would want people to have in the near future and those who work to make us a better person. They share their ideas of being a better person and encourage us to make better choices in life. A role model is not just someone who is successful, intellegent or a smart it can be anyone. A role model can even be one of the laziest person in your class or at your work place, who knows. In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird, Harper Lee shows us how Atticus Finch is a true role model.
When understanding how my own experiences have cultivated my multiple social identities the strengths or resiliency perspective tends to resonate with me as a social worker. Marsiglia & Kulis (2015) state that “the resiliency perspective recognizes that all cultural groups have unique strengths that can be used to empower their members” (p. 145). This suggest that cultural diversity benefits communities and individuals by allowing them to identify and utilize their existing cultural competent supports. The strengths perspective counteracts the “medical model” which pathologizes individuals and communities and emphasizes the service provider as the expert (Shulman, 2012). While the medical model allows inequality to be perpetuated through focusing

Ramiah Family Foundation Scholarship I believe that part of my qualification for the Ramiah Family Foundation Scholarship lies in the amount of passion I have put into my studies and work. I have attempted to represent myself with integrity in all aspects of my life whether that be through attending rigorous schools, volunteering and applying myself in the community, or planning towards the future. If asked if I believe I deserve this scholarship as reward for this commitment I would gladly have to admit that I do not believe this is the case. My reasoning behind answering this way is that I have already found great reward in the pride that comes in putting the amount of work into your pursuits as you wish to receive from it.
I am applying for a place to study social work because I have always wanted to be able to make a difference to people's lives. With social work I believe I can do this in a caring and supportive way. Many of my life experiences have led me to who I am today. The first thing I remember that caught my attention was how my cousin would always stay with my family. He would be spent weeks with at my house without contract with his parents.
By teaching someone else to let go of their fears and not be afraid to fail, I will make a great difference in their life.

The boys and girls club has many great sports activities to join in to help get kids out of the street and become more active in their community. They are there for you when you need them the most and you make so many new positive friends through the activities they have. Camp voyageur was my favorite camp they made you feel wanted and you never felt left out the camp leaders helped you become a leader and made you feel more independent. Boys and girls club have shown me a lot in life and I want to further my education so that someday I can give back to them. With all of my reasons why I want to further my education the most important reason is so I can give back to my family and community one day.
Being able to connect with the community and with my peers will be a valuable and unforgettable experience. Not only will I be able to learn from the community, but from my fellow peers, medical students, high school students, and other undergraduates as well.

Creating long lasting friendships with people who have similar interest.
Though the term "saving the world" usually equates to a grand gesture, such as preventing world hunger or curing cancer, I think that each of us is able to help save the world by positively impacting those around us (though curing cancer would be amazing). I would certainly aspire to enrich the Gatton community as much as possible and I believe that I have the qualities necessary to do so, the first of which is my accepting nature. I enjoy being around all different types of people and continuously bring those around me together. I am also compassionate; I live my life according to the Golden Rule and I my best to help anyone who is struggling, whether that means doing something as small as helping a classmate with chemistry homework or as important as supporting a friend going through a tough time. Moreover, I am hardworking and organized, which allows me to give back to my community by doing things such as planning study groups and assisting with fundraisers.
