Being a member of this team has given me more confidence than I ever thought a shy girl could attain. In addition to gaining confidence, I have learned to be humble. I train my mind and my body both on and off the field during the season as well as during the off season, but I still cannot take all the credit for what I accomplish in this sport. I have been blessed with a driven and quick-learning mind, a healthy immune system, and the body of an athlete. I also give credit to my coaches and to my teammates because I could never be where I am today if it were not for their inspiration and motivation.
The National Honor Society is an exceptional organization that allows students to help the needy, children, the elderly, and non-profit organizations. I would be excited to join such a society because of the limitless opportunities it presents to me. Joining NHS would allow me to grow as a person, and do as much as I can for others. Throughout my years as a student, I have shown great examples of scholarship, leadership, character and service that I believe would qualify to join this prestigious society.
Sebastian Reaves Dr. Hood English 10 Honors, Period 5 30 October 2015 Title Unexpectedly life can give you certain obstacles, you have to fight through those obstacles to get through life. Last year, I joined the cross country team and I am still on it today. Running has affected my life a lot and has changed my lifestyle. Additionally, running has made me a stronger individual.
I know from experience that honors courses can be very challenging and stressful. Even when I am facing the hardest classes, I know that I must never give up. I put all the effort I possibly can into my work. Even when I receive grades that I am not so proud of, I never get discouraged. I am content knowing that I did my absolute best.
A lot of aspects in my life changed drastically when I started my first year of high school. I became more matured and dedicated in my education, which made me feel better with myself as I started to improve as a student. Teachers suddenly began to mention college and demand the requirement to know what career you want to make a living of, and reality instantaneously hit me hard. I realized that I had to upgrade my grades and start thinking about my future, something that I have been avoiding for a long time, so eventually, when my grades became higher than usual and the only thing left was to decide what major I was getting in my mind was completely blank. Since I was young I thought that I was convinced about what I wanted to do, but I became aware that what I wanted was a bit unrealistic and as I heard my friends talk about their future with such confidence l felt uncertain about mine.
I have taken responsibility for what I have done in the past and are pushing myself to work harder to reach all my goals to make me a better person within society. I have faced many challenges as well as setbacks this past year, but I have and I know I can find a way to manage my time to reach my full potential. I find myself juggling school and my full course load, club volleyball, work and making my car payments, getting a decent amount of sleep and having a social life. I do admit it can be overwhelming at times
For me, cross country isn’t just a sport to add to your extra curricular activities, nor is it an “easy” sport to join just because you want to be considered an athlete. Cross country is way more than that. It is a lifestyle. It is waking up every morning at 5 a.m., running countless miles until you can’t feel your legs anymore, having no days off, and having to sacrifice plans with your best friends because you have practices and races every weekend. I saw dedication every time I saw my sister grit her face with determination as she forced herself through the finish line.
Throughout my years I have achieved multiple academic awards and accolades. To get to to a point in my education where I was able to receive such great awards took serious dedication not only on my part but all the teachers as well. Learning new material in various topics does not come easy to me. I started off certain classes like geometry or spanish with no clue what I was doing and even a few bad grades in the beginning. Specifically, I failed my first geometry test with a 54 in ninth grade and that did not sit well with me and from then on Mrs. Brown took the time out her own schedule and stayed after to
I personally believe that the Ohio State Academy would be a tremendous opportunity for me. I see the Academy as a way to get accustomed to the rigor of college, as well as an opportunity to push myself academically. It would allow me to graduate from college quicker, which would enable post-graduate studies to be a more feasible option. Rather then continuing to be held back in my education, the Ohio State Academy would let me excel past high school curriculum. Another major advantage of this post-secondary program is the, although counter-intuitive, ability to be more involved in my high school extracurricular activities.

As an athlete myself the athletics are a major part of why I would like to go to Archbishop Mitty High School. The wide range of sports means that if I grow tired of one sport I can move to another. With a lot of sports that do not need much experience since they are non-cut, I feel that I have many opportunities to shine in sports that I would otherwise never have attempted. Knowing that Archbishop Mitty High School has won so many awards in the athletic department, tells me that they are doing something right. At the open house, I had the chance to speck with athletes and coaches and that gave me a feeling that the athletics are another part of Mitty 's wonderful community.
Langston Hughes once said “Let America be America Again”. What does he mean by what he quoted? “I hear America Singing” is a poem written by Walt Whitman and these two poems have similarites and diffrences. These two poems have a lot of similarites.
