After taking care of my educational responsibilities and extra-curricular activities, I always find the time to involve myself in service-oriented activities. For example, during the last year, I completed 68 hours of community service. And, this year I hope to devote more hours to activities that will benefit my fellow students and my community. I have great plans in mind like organizing service trips, doing fund raisers, reserve one Saturday each month to community service to bring a smile to someone’s face. Additionally, this year the Interact members have selected me as a treasure for the school year 2015-2016; giving me the chance to use my leadership skills to provide a valuable service to my classmates.
During my high school career I have made a consistent effort to stay involved in both my school and community. Through clubs such as Key Club, National Art Honor Society, and National Honor Society I’ve been able to help out locally and globally in an abundance of ways. In Key club and NHS I am able to volunteer in traditional ways, but National Arts Honors Society allows me to contribute to my community and school in a creative way that stimulates people 's minds through art. Due to these activities having a significant impact on my life my future career options are based around what I have learned from them. I plan to attend college to study art within the marketing/communications field in the upcoming years.
It is not only my intellectual curiosity, but also my passion towards giving back to the community, that will lead me to success. As a UD honors student, I plan on joining organizations and performing volunteer work that I have done in high school. It will allow me to consolidate my musical and creative passions, while participating in new extracurricular activities pertaining to sports and community service. I believe that with the University of Delaware’s many opportunities, I can have the potential to become a strong leader and active member of the UD Honors community. The lessons that I have learned from working with these children will forever remain a part of me, as I hope to grow to be someone who will one day be able to change society, and will remind me to always dare to
During my time with the club I often met with Kiwanis (A organization of volunteers), soon I learned that Kiwanis created The Key club to give high school students an opportunity to serve their community. I also uncovered that The Georgia Institute of Technology also enjoys a Kiwanis club. In terms of service I believe that through community service, I may make a positive contribution to Georgia Tech upon arrival. I am very excited to join Kiwanis in college. I have always served locally, but I am exuberant to assist broader
Leadership, a drive to serve, and a strong character are crucial aspects of those who wish to live successful and prosperous lives, and unsurprisingly, are desirable traits for those in National Honor Society. Leadership is the ability to motivate, inspire, and guide others in forming a favorable outcome. Instances that I have exhibited leadership include being the captain for two years in a row for Black History Quiz Bowl and being both a counselor and teacher at a 4-H summer camp. The ability to serve helps bring out a person’s humility, selflessness, and deeper understanding of how the world interacts. Character is a culmination of traits that make up a well-rounded person, such as being altruistic or possessing comradeship.
National Junior Honors Society needs people who are hard working, and are ready to get the job done. I should be considered to be in National Junior Honors Society because I show scholarship and leadership, I have done many community service activities, and I show character and citizenship. I have done many activities involving scholarship and leadership. I am in violin, chorus, and other in-school and after school activities. This means I am familiar with other sides of school, and I can share my experiences and try to make them fit into what we do/what is done in NJHS.
A degree in exercise science will provide me with the knowledge and skills necessary to enroll in medical school. The campus atmosphere is learning-friendly and provides students with the tools necessary to excel academically as well as physically and emotionally. Simply walking around campus makes one feel as if they are part of a large family. I believe that Florida State is a unique school that will provide me with the tools I need to succeed and prepare for my future. Not only will Florida State University provide for my future, but I also believe that I will be able to contribute back to the university.
I have led many club activities such as concession stands, volunteer services, and other community led activities. I have become a great leader to many of these kids as president of our school club, S-Club. I am in very good standing academically and known for my exceptional work ethic. I have matured with each of the trials and events I have encountered that have come my way during my senior year. The skills I have gained over the course of the year will help me towards my main career goal in mind, professional.

Becoming a part of National Honor Society will give me opportunities to help and learn more about others.

Within a fellowship of individuals, honor is highly esteemed. The sharing of common attitudes and being united through service, binds a society.

The National Honor Society is a top-notch group that many want to be part of, but for all of the wrong reasons. There are many traits one needs to successfully participate in the group; Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. During the course of my life, I dedicated it to learning new subjects and striving for top marks in my classes. Learning is an immense passion of mine that will continue to thrive. Throughout the years, I observed that certain people led their group to the correct path.
For the past three years, I have been open to various networks of connections through school and school clubs. For example, becoming a Key Club officer enriched my skills in communication with other students, teachers, and those in my community. By enhancing my communication skills, I have learned how to interact and work with different people to achieve a common goal. With these skills, I learned to set myself apart from the traditional standards by finding myself and developing my own unique characteristics. High school has been an amazing opportunity for me to gain experience and grow as an individual.
He has always encouraged me to become the best I can be. He would always tell me: “Strive for success and don’t stop until you reach your full potential.” Being able to see the mistakes he made will help me succeed at Allen. This past season really opened my eyes because I was offered multiple scholarships from many different Universities and Community Colleges. Looking back at my performances has made me realize how far I have come from when I set my goal when younger. I have exceeded my goals and I never imagined being as far as I am now.
The goals that I hope to accomplish in the next six months is completing a season of water polo, be an officer of the FCA club, be on the swim team, and grow further on my praise and worship team at my church. I hope that I am still upholding my 4.0. GPA and continuing to brighten people’s days. I have pushed myself past my limits and worked really hard on keeping my straight A’s and withholding my starter spot on the junior varsity water polo team. I have supported my goals and plans already by getting help from my parents and my avid teacher.
As I have challenged myself throughout my high school career, I have gained new passions and goals. Taking higher-level classes such as AP and running start, I have prepared myself for the fast pace of college. Along with this, I’ve become involved in clubs that have allowed me to experience numerous volunteer opportunities. I am currently involved with Go Green club, National Honors Society, Federal Credit Union Board, and Leos club. In each extracurricular we focus on giving back to our community.
