I will help motivate my peers to take on more community and school service projects. I am not afraid to break out of my comfort zone to benefit those around me. The past two years I have worked to come out of my comfort zone and try new things. This lead me to many clubs and extracurricular activities that I know enjoy. For example, I am an active member of the FPC band.
The International Summer Camps are very enlightening because they have allowed me to not only be healthy and take part in physical activity; but to embrace my culture, assist youth in acknowledging the importance of education, take part in team oriented workshops, and listen to key speakers that overcame great adversity. I have learned about the importance of assisting others and placing a grin on another person’s face, which is my primary motive for becoming a family practitioner. I have a desire to major in biology, minor in public health, and declare pre-med and I will continue to place forth my utmost effort as I embark on my
I want to do something to help my community to make a difference and be remembered, to be someone who my parents are proud of. I would also like to save up and travel to other countries to see how other cultures and communities live and go about their lives to learn and see what life is out of my small community, spend some
I would be a good fit in the Roger Williams University Honors program for a multitude of reasons. I obtain the qualities of someone who is ready to become a leader, as well as the best version of myself possible.I have participated in multiple activities, clubs, and service projects throughout my life. A few qualities that make me a suitable candidate would be, my motivation, dependability, and ability to put others before myself. During my four years at Sandwich High School, I was involved in numerous clubs and activities. This can be shown on my application;however, that list does not show the impact it had on me.
Red Cross Club - Board Application Why do you want to be a leader in Red Cross Club? I have a keen interest in promoting the health and well-being of my fellow community members. The very thought that my efforts could help save someone’s life and inspire others to do the same motivates me to spark greater change. Moreover, I hope to refine my skills in community outreach, communication, and teamwork, all of which are among the most crucial to improving society. Taking an active role in the city government has brought me to access the importance of bridging gaps within the community, an effort that I hope to continue and grow through my position on the Red Cross Club board.
However, this delightful inclination of helping others would have never arisen if I never listened in on small history lesson about George C. Marshall. It was on the JROTC Leadership team that I learned how awe-inspiring Marshall was, and Marshall Plan is what really caught my attention because he knew, the easy choice would be to leave Europe the way it was, but he decided on giving aid and rebuilding Europe. Then ultimately, it is JROTC to blame for my fascination with helping others. Last year, I held the position of assistant commander of the Leadership team. It was a subtle role, but the perfect role to receive the lecture about George C.
What followed was an intense sense of gratification for doing something for the benefit of others. From there, I dove into as many community service opportunities as possible, including sports, school clubs, and mentorship programs. While my responsibilities as freshmen class vice president were small in the grand sceme, my experience on the student council were perhaps the most enlightening. Primarily, I learned the importance of teamwork and inclusion because I had to work with other class officers to organize events, including spirit hall decorations and my high school’s annual air guitar
I found the readings on education reform to be interesting. I enjoyed reading about charter schools and what school organizations need to be an effective school. I learned from the readings about Charter Schools which are not too familiar in the area where I live in Michigan. From the readings I have a new perspective of what factors are needed to be an effective school. I found the topic of charter schools to be interested because I don’t know a lot about charter schools.
However, I have experienced some negative aspects of group work in university where people didn’t pull their weight or didn’t complete work at all/on time. Choosing one of these groups and reflect on: What the group was about? The group I have decided to look at is science camp groups. In particular, a camp that required a lot of group work was the NYSF (national youth science forum), which I attended in 2015. The NYSF is a summer school program that aims to inspire future scientists.
This is why thoughout the years I've tried to look for opportunities to help people. By looking back on all the things Connie did for her community, I noticed how important volunteering and doing community service. Not only does this benefit the person that is receiving the help, but it also benefits the provider. Indeed, doing community service molds a person’s character and personality. Perhaps this is why I was so eager to begin community
First of all, I want to express my gratitude for the opportunity to apply for the Clarence A. Hawkes Scholarship. With the cost of a college education increasing to new heights, scholarships become all the more important. I have participated in numerous and varied extracurricular activities throughout my life, and all these extracurriculars take up a considerable amounts of time. For instance, most days last Fall I would arrive at the school at 7:00 for marching band, have class from 8:15-3:20, cross country from 3:30-5:15 and then musical practice from 6:30-9:00. These time commitments taught me to manage my time and to never take weekends for granted.
I am looking for more than just academics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. During my four years at Northwood High School, I became involved in numerous academic and extracurricular activities. As a result, I have been recognized and honored for achievements both inside and outside of school. I realize that titles and academic achievements are limited, but some of the impact I have on my community and other people’s lives is what really matters. Therefore, I plan to continue my active involvement in extracurricular activities while I am a college student.
Organizations are also looking at educational programs as a method to enhance local knowledge about how they can support restoration of the Back Bay through volunteer efforts. The progress made on many prior restoration projects is encouraging and fosters hope that although many challenges face estuaries, there are also a great deal of opportunities to remedy negative impacts and form more preventive measures towards sustainable estuary
