My oldest brother has obtained a certificate from TVCC. The household income is obtained from one parent in earning the minimum wage of Oregon. Over the years I have maintained a GPA of 3.8 to a 4.0. While in high school I have taken around 16 semester credits of honor classes, as of the end of last year, and I am currently taking some right now. Most of these honors classes have also counted as college credits so that means the 45 credits of pre-admissions requisites can turn into less.
At that time, I was volunteering at the Exodus Refugee Immigration for about 4 hours a week to complete my community service scholar requirement. It started out as just a way to complete the scholarship requirement, but after I went to the airport to pick up a family that had just landed from the Democratic Republic of Congo, I knew that this was something I could see myself
Transcripts Throughout my high school career I have accumulated a weighted academic GPA of 3.76. My first two years of high school were the hardest for me. Since I was in foster care I had moved four times in my first two years of high school. Unfortunately my GPA at the time was barely above a 2.0. Junior year I was settled down and determined to improve my academics; by the end of first semester of junior year I had raised my GPA by one point.

It is time for parents to teach young people early on that in diversity there is beauty and there is strength. Maya Angelou This quote embodies the essence of my students. They are from diverse backgrounds, however, each possesses beauty and strength that I hope to nurture as their teacher. Over 99% of my students are African American or Hispanic, and over 95% receive free or reduced lunch. They also live in the poorest congressional district in the United States.
As mentioned before, I was a tutor for many years, both paid and volunteer, serving mostly the Armenian community. A tutoring company sent me to Burbank and Glendale to tutor some high-end students for an hour or so after work, where I would then use my spare time to tutor a few good Armenian kids for free down the street. Through networking from Church goers, I naturally found myself being called up by parents to help their young adults revamp their grades. It grew from a few favors to a full-time job, which I’d have to admit, really took its toll on me. Something about being Armenia makes it hard for me to say no them even if it drains me.
For most of my college years, I have been a part of the class 's executive board. Presently, I am the Senior Class President. With my position, I am tasked with leading class meetings, planning class events, and everything in between. One major part of being on executive board is the planning of your class spirit week. Four weeks before homecoming, Senior Week is the first major event week of the school year, and is the last group of class-based festivities for the respective class.
In my junior year of high school, I did not think that the bags underneath my eyes could grow any darker. At the time, I was a member of Business Professionals of America, UIL, Student Council, SHAQ, and the National Honors Society. Not only this, but I was taking college courses, an AP course, and had friends and family to attend to. Every day was a new challenge for me. Although all of these comings and goings have a place in my heart, my biggest achievement was becoming class president and planning the 2015 prom.
Attending college will show my dad that his hard work is going to pay off and know that I succeeded because he was there since day one. Another person who has influenced me to go to college is my AVID (Advanced Via Individual Determination) teacher, that since junior year of high school, has been there through SAT/ACT testing, in my college application process. She has been someone to motivate more to attend college because she sees potential in every single student, no matter what circumstance they are in. Going to The University of Texas at Arlington would be a form of payment to her for dedicating her time and

After graduating from MHS, the next challenge in my mission to ascend from my circumstances was to become the best student at The Pennsylvania State University (Penn State). With consideration of my mother not graduating high school, it was imperative and self- driving that I reward her sacrifices by excelling in my academic career. Eager to outperform, consequently, I earned the Smeal Merit Diversity Scholarship for three consecutive years (Freshmen-Junior) at Penn State. This prestigious scholarship is only awarded to the top five minority business students at Penn State. In addition to my academic successes, I became very active on campus and served as a leader at the top of four different campus-organizations.
With a Japanese mother and German father, I seem to fit into the common depiction of the United States as a “Melting pot of cultures”. Through multiple visual tours and hours of research, I deduced that Georgia Tech possess a certain uniqueness that other technological institutes lack, that being a great graduation rate of underrepresented minorities and research leadership. In terms of cultural diversity, I truly believe that I may add to the cultural diversity ingrained in Georgia Tech by joining the 4% multiracial students, and sharing the same positive ideologies that I am fortunate enough to retain. During my sophomore year of high school, I began to engage myself in the community. My local mission sparked my interest in the locale.
