To make a significant change in the world, countless hours of preparation, of work, and proactive cooperation with others are crucial for success. I partake in few extra-curricular activities, but I have dedicated years of my life to them all. On a regular week, I have to balance French club and National French Honor Society secretary duties, community service for National Honor Society, and additional choir practice for at least two hours after school each week (while sometimes performing community service with the choir as well). I want to become an engineer; so I take AP classes that are useful and interest me because I will need to know advanced math and science concepts in college. All of these extra-curricular activities and academics will become even more relevant when it is time for me to advance my future goals of pursuing a higher education and making significant efforts to aid the world by designing helpful technology with medical applications.
I began this track since the fifth grade, and I continued and progressed all these year. Now in my senior year of high school I am taking Calculus III and Differential Equations- traditionally college sophomore classes. I also took advantage of the Engineering classes offered at Union. My parents
Its name is Ben Carson’s Summer Program. Its aim was to educate and encourage the black youth to pursue a career and spark interests in the science field and, for me, that is exactly what happened. I extracted DNA, dissected cow brains, and learned about the life of Ben Carson, my idol. Despite his political standings, I respect his story about how he came to be the neurosurgeon that he is today. He went through several trials and tribulations to
I am a member of the band, and a member of jazz band, the sound technician in theatre, and I am an active member of Student Council and the Every Monday Matters Committee. All of these involve time and effort, and I do my best to help the most I can for each club. Although I may not be the best in everything I do, I have grit. I am willing to do whatever I can to be as successful as I can. In the next three and a half years, my goal is to leave Llano High School the best I can.
Last year I completed the three year course with an occupational course completion certificate. With this certificate I can enter a four year college with three credits towards my bachelor’s degree in criminal justice along with the dual enrollment courses I have already completed. This year I continue to study criminal justice law and systems, but it has been a more kinesthetic experience by participating in mock trials, criminal investigations and traffic crash investigations. My teacher, Heather Lay, has been such an influence in my education and pushing me to try my best, especially with all of the mock situations she made me head leader of. Though, such mock situations have also supported and influenced my intrigue in the criminal justice field while satisfying my scientific curiosity.
Maybe I am a bit distracted at times during lessons but believe me I have almost always tried to do my best in everything I do in specific my classes. Throughout my life I have been a 2.5 to 3.0 (gpa) student and had maybe a couple of F letter grades since my freshman start at Dinuba High School. I have high hopes of going to Reedly my college though it has always been a goal for my family but most importantly for myself. What I am saying is that I truly believe that I have the qualifications needed to make it to the college I have always thought about going. I am very optimistic about my future and see myself being accepted into Reedly college it is one of my dreams and until I see the day they really won 't accept me I 'll never
I have worked hard my entire life to get good grades, and have found ways to balance my academic and personal life. I have a job, am in 5 clubs, have over 200 logged volunteer hours, and have taken 8 AP classes. I am a member of the Stony Point High School Unarmed Drill Team. I have held a leadership position in my high school for all 4 years. In 9th-12th grades, I was Treasurer for the Robotics Team, where I also documented the process of designing, building, and testing the robot.
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.
Being involved in many activities in high school, from athletics to fine arts, has taught me how to work well with others as well as work hard under pressure. One of the many organizations I have been involved in while in high school is student council. I am currently serving my third year as student council president for my class and in doing so it has taught me leadership and organization. Student council calls for many responsibilities and opportunities including, service projects for the community, planning a variety of events for the school, and planning major events such as homecoming and prom. Planning and organizing events has given me the opportunity to communicate and meet new people.
My short term education goals include attending Northern Virginia Community College for two years and completing my Associates in Science degree in engineering. I hope to join the honors college and graduate with a GPA of 4.0. During my time at Northern Virginia Community College, I hope to truly learn and prepare myself not only for transfering to a University but also for real work and life after college by applying the skills and knowledge I learn. Not only do I want to learn but I want to spend time in extracurricular activities such as cross country or join clubs like the robotics or math club. My goal is to complete community college with no debt.
My respectable future is slowing sneaking up on me and I have to be prepared. I have strived for satisfactory grades and an abundant of community service hours to do so. The career path that I have chosen for myself is Forensic Anthropology, which has always fascinated me. This career is obviously not easy to achieve, but I believe with the right determination and work/study ethic, I can potentially flourish in my future education. I plan to attend community college for two years, and then move on to a 4 year university to work on my degree.
I believe I have always pursued for what is best for me and I continue to do so. Dedicated is what I like to describe myself as, whether it is in school or at work. I will always accomplish more than I can, without the help of others. It gives me value for being an independent person, which I believe makes me stand out from other candidates. Not only that, I enjoy managing to do certain task and duties on my own, because I enjoy the after feeling of success and the opportunity to help others after.
