Over the past four years I have dealt with circumstances that have affected me positively and allowed me to grow. I have gained much perspective, determination, and responsibility. These qualities have aided my highschool career and help me continue to succeed in college. I plan on going into engineering; the Honors College is the place where I want learn exactly what branch of engineering that I want to pursue. My ultimate goal is to become a well rounded person and student; I want to take full.
If I decided to obtain my associate 's degree after earning my diploma the impact it will have on my career would be greater than the impact I will have just by having a diploma. I feel this way because by having a diploma only I will be starting from the bottom and working my way up. As opposed to me coming into the medical field with an associates I would have an easier chance of moving up the chain to higher positions a lot quicker because of my schooling. I do have a plan to come back to school to obtain my Associates so that I will be walking out of the military with a degree in something instead of just a diploma. All in all, I feel that obtaining my associate 's will help me in the long run not only financially but also by the
Finding My Independence Being a twin is occasionally eerie. There are times when my sister, Emily, seems to know what I am thinking and often finishes my sentences for me. I have been asked millions of times "What’s it like being a twin?" I don’t blame people for their curiosity, but I really don’t know what it would be like without my twin sister. From the day of conception we have been side by side, figuratively attached at the hip.
Arnold Schwarzenegger once said, “Help others and give something back. I guarantee you will discover that while public service improves the lives and the world around you, the greatest reward is the enrichment and new meaning it will bring to your own life.” This quote clearly explains what service truly means to people that care about others from their heart. National Honor Society is an organization which recognizes students’ achievements not just with exceeding grades, but with service, leadership, and character. Serving others is an important and valuable pillar of the National Honor Society.
Dear the National Honor Society selection committee, Thank you for the great honor of being invited to apply for membership to such a well-respected and incredible organization. I am very excited about this opportunity as it presents an optimal way in which to further my passion of expanding my mind and bettering my community. Since I entered high school, I have pursued this by taking all honors classes and any Advanced Placement classes offered to me each year. Although sometimes I was not always entirely sure what to expect walking into each class, and of course there have been classes I like more than others, there is no class I regret taking because each and every one has opened my mind up to a new way of thinking.
The Pillars of National Honor Society have influenced my life even before I recognized what they were. For Scholarship, I have spent the past four years dedicating my attention to my studies. I’ve spent hours after school studying particular tests. Matter of fact, I spent my seventeenth birthday taking a mock exam for my Calculus test. I’ve always kept my goal of succeeding in mind and worked hard to make my family proud.
Joining the sisterhood of Kappa Kappa Gamma has enhanced my life in many ways. Throughout the past year, I not only met the friends that will be with me for the rest of my life, but met the people I call family. Every member of this sisterhood has encouraged me to be a better version of myself. In particular, this past semester, living in the chapter house and being surrounded by this amazing family throughout most of my day has increased by GPA, improved my mental and physical health, and decreased the stress that comes with being in college.
I am ready to board the ship, and set sail – pointing towards a bright future of being an ECU pirate. Being admitted into the Honors College at ECU would be the catalyst to a successful future. As a high school senior, I am considering many universities and believe that being apart of the ECU community would allow me to reach my full potential. Growing up I have always set high standards for myself academically and extracurricularly. I participate in many clubs at my school including BETA club and National Honor Society.
As a future nurse major, I feel committed to engage in activities that deal with serving others. My lifetime goal consists of becoming a registered nurse, and later on a certified nurse anesthetist. My high expectation of a career is based on the association I've had with a disease hardship in my family. Consequently, my highest reward would be to soothe the literal pain of a human being.
Being in 1976, the University of Southern Mississippi opened its public honors college program with the goal to create a vibrant, supportive, challenging community for scholars while attending the university. The atmosphere the honor’s college is striving to create is ideal for incoming students who crave knowledge and the struggle of learning new material. For these reasons, I long to be part of the honors college community while contributing myself to the incoming freshman class. The design of the honors college creates a sought after destination for students who wants a challenge and to exceed the standards of basic classes.
Being a member and leader in National Honor Society has proven beneficial in my development. As I grow and expand my knowledge of the world around me, I have relied on the four pillars of NHS to ensure my current and future success in life. The importance of scholarship has always resonated with me, as I have maintained my number one class rank throughout my high school career. However, distinguishing my desire for additional knowledge from a classroom requirement to a true commitment to learning has only come to me through my membership with NHS.
