Similarly, I would like to serve as a resource to university administration. Having recently been through the same stages in education, current students like me are ideally placed to provide support and guidance to young people at this critical time in their education. I would love to share my stories and experiences with them and listen to and understand them. I believe that I possess many of the qualities that you are looking for in a student ambassador and I will prove to be an asset for the
The most character building experience in my life was when I joined the National Junior Honor Society in middle school. Engaging in NJHS has molded me into honing the attributes of leadership, citizenship, scholarship, service, and character. For instance, involving myself in community service like Relay For Life, not only aided me with the chance to assist my community but has helped me to develop citizenship and service. Furthermore, being in the organization has made me realize that I can assume the role of leadership and guide my fellow classmates by being a role model. Consequently, I became further aware of the importance of education and have been gradually becoming, increasingly studious.
Furthermore, I lead some of my classes, teaching them how do some of the work while having patience and confidence as I help them. I want to join National Honor Society for several reasons. I want to gain more leadership experiences as I surround myself with people have have the same academic goals as me. This club has volunteering
Being a student at Frostburg State University has allowed me to participate in a number of student organizations as well as leader positions and experiences. As a current mentor in the Read to Succeed program, which is geared towards helping young local students understand and develop fundamental reading and math skills, I have learned the depth and importance associated with maintaining an active role in the community. Such an experience has also helped me to enhance my own leadership skills as the current president of the Student Health Advisory Committee (SHAC). This student organization partners with the university’s health center, Brady Health Center, in providing and promoting health to students and members of the community. As president, I not only work side by side with the diligent members of the organization in advocating healthy lifestyle choices to students, but
As a member of FPC’s future problem solvers and community problem solvers club I have embraced and enhanced my problem solving and critical thinking skills to allow myself to lead my peers. My pivotal leadership role as a Varsity captain for FPC’s Girls Lacrosse speaks volumes as to how my coaches and teammates view me. As a mentor to other players on my team I aid them on and off the field; offering a friendship they can confide in, and tips/tricks they can use to improve their skills. I work with my peers in various clubs to help better them in any way I can. I greatly understand the importance of bettering our school.
What I see as the function of the National Honor Society is to encourage young adults like myself to participate more within their school and community. It allows students the ability to give and serve other people that have done so for them. This group will give many students an eye opening experience on volunteering for fellow citizens. If I were to be selected into the National Honor Society, I would contribute to the group by sharing ideas and giving useful feedback to the other students in the group. I would also provide personal experiences of certain voluntary services that I have completed, if needed.
When I was young, if she saw litter she would always pick it up, stating “If we don’t pick it up who will?” Her rectitude taught me to take the initiative in my education and in my community. By being accepted into The PCTI chapter of the National Honor Society, I hope to further my education while also developing my character and defining what exactly it is I wish to accomplish in life. I hope having other like minded, self driven peers and mentors surrounding me will push me to reach my potential while I aid them in doing the same. The National Honor Society is more than just another accolade to me. It is a pillar of education and citizenship.
Finally, the role of student has done an extreme amount of molding my self-identity. It exposed me to so many different people, situations and academic concepts. Interactions with fellow students have had a huge impact on the formation of my character. It 's helped me find security in a core group of really good friends, which has bolstered my self esteem and helped me be more confident with who I am as a person. If I wasn 't a student, maybe home schooled, I definitely would not have the friend-making abilities that I do now.
Furthermore, there comes a personal gratification when you have helped another student overcome a problem through advice or research that you shared with them. Social constructivism will be an everyday part of my future career as learning through communication a key factor in teaching (Kim, 2001). Students are encouraged to engage in social activities which require a hands-on approach to learning together (Young,
Another goal I have is to be a great leader/ role model for not only my family, underclassmen, but my community. Being a leader now will help me show my family, underclassmen, and community that I work hard and that things don’t come easy. I am always willing to help out and make a difference in my community. Having set goals makes me want to work harder, and also making me realize the road will be hard. But with the work ethics I have that I’ve learned throughout high school, and will continue to learn in college will help me accomplish these much easier.
It is because we have the need to feel special about our identities that many educators our testing the intersections of identity and individuality within schools. In the article we read called Queer students of color and antiracist, antiheterosexist education: Paradoxes of identity and activism, by Kevin K. Kumashiro, we learn process of analyzing “intersections” can definitely come with new issues and challenges of its own.
It was through my PowerPoints, office hours, and talks with my students that I came to share my experiences with them, and help them settle into college. Furthermore, the Peer Advisor community helped demonstrate our concern for our students through our numerous activities that we planned outside of the classroom. The Peer Advisors organized many outings for our students. This time with them allowed us to connect on a more personal basis, and allow us to talk to them about their college transition. Being a Peer Advisor has been so rewarding in that it has allowed me to care and concern for these students as they settle into their journey at
As a student, I participate in many clubs and extracirricular activities to promote myself as a positive leader or influence to others. I always maintain an A gradepoint average so I will have better chances for college and other future educational needs. I participate in National Honor Society, Peer Mediation, and Reading Team for clubs. In National Honor Society, we are prepared for leadership and a general lifelong success. In Peer Mediation we promote the idea of problem solving with the process of doing so by putting peers together.
