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. As a junior in high school, I was inducted into the National Honor Society for doing exceptionally well in my academic endeavors and actively participating in volunteer events. My contributions through this organization have made a significant impact on both my personal development and my community’s support services. The numerous volunteer projects in which I have participated have prepared me to continue helping others in the future. Through projects such as building houses from the ground-up with Habitat for Humanity, I have developed teamwork skills, discovered my management potential, and increased my social network, all while working to provide services for less fortunate individuals in my community.

“You did it. You helped make a difference,” were the words I heard when I felt my perspective on life change. It was in that moment, standing in the hallway of my high school, holding a crisp check of $2,000 for the American Heart Association that I realized I did not need to be a superhero in order to make a difference. When I became the president of my National Honor Society(NHS) chapter, I set out to make a difference within my school. In years past, the NHS chapter at my school was not extremely active and I set out to reinvent the chapter.
My dutie for my health science was HOSA. I was co president of HOSA and my duty was to lead the club and we did community service.

Before 10th grade, I had an insufficiently rigorous course load to yield a competitive GPA. After taking the most rigorous classes for a year and boosting my GPA, I have decided to help my classmates tackle the competition at my school by helping them organize their schedules and classes for future academic years. I have reached out to these classmates through class projects and tutoring sessions. So far, I have helped about five teenagers become competitive. I have also frequently volunteered at a local food pantry.
Through high school, I’ve done over 1000 hours of community service and been an active member of many clubs, but the ones that I have truly put most of my time and effort into have been Spanish Honor Society and Key Club. Combined in these clubs I have had the position of historian, treasurer, secretary, and president. With these leadership positions I was able to develop my leadership skills and also understand the hard work that gets put into these clubs that is later brought out to its members to create a union of people that have influence in the world. Through tutoring students in high school, I have found I alone can make an impact on one person at a time through motivation and mentoring, which in turn makes a difference to our world little by little and helps them start their own journey’s as
Instead of being closed-minded and allowing the expectations drown out my aspirations, I needed to open my eyes and realize my potential. I wanted to continue my interest in advocacy, so I became president of my school’s Students In Action program and helped the team win the 2016 Gold Service Leadership Award. In order to guarantee that my presentations and ideas would be effective, I enrolled in the Dale Carnegie youth training that my school was offering. Even though my siblings have tried to persuade me not to bother worrying about report cards and colleges, I utilized my love of learning to pursue higher, more challenging course loads in AP and honors classes.

I dedicated most of my time actively participating in the American Red Cross by assisting in blood drives, raising money for charities, and bringing awareness to certain issues within my local communities. While actively being a part of the Essex Youth Council I was committed to providing and assisting the neighboring communities around me in order to guarantee that I am doing everything within my means to volunteer and make a difference.

My goal is to pursue a career where I can utilize my diverse skills. In studying Health Administration, it would allow me to become healthcare provider who not only understands the concepts of finance management but also aware of medical law. I have previously studied and received a degree in my major of Biology, concentrated in the Pre-Medical Curriculum, and minor in Chemistry.

When I transferred from LA Mission College, I applied to become a part of the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP). To become more involved in school’s extracurricular activities, I joined the program called the National Society of Leadership and Success (NSLS) which is an honor society on campus. With NSLS, not only I get to meet different people at school, I also have a chance to build leadership skills. Other than NSLS, I am also a member of the Layer 8 club and a member of the Management Information System Association (MISA). Through these organizations, I have a chance to meet with professionals in the IT field and learn new things from them.
Throughout my life I have been blessed with more opportunities than many other people my age. This is why I strive to act on all of the opportunities I have been given, while also satisfying my passion for giving back to those who are less fortunate. Firstly, one of the most beneficial events in shaping myself was attending the National Student Leadership Conference. Hundreds of students are chosen annually for their outstanding leadership qualities within their communities. During the one and half week camp, students not only focus on improving their leadership qualities, but also get hands on experience in the field of their choice.
