In my brief life, I have overcome a lot of adversity. My mom fled Mexico with her three young children to escape domestic violence. When we came to this country we had only a few personal belongings and the promise of a better future. We came to this country and lived in a small trailer with no toilet other than a bucket, and no shower except for the one that was lent to us from the kindness of a stranger, our new neighbor. As a single parent, my mother had to work day and night to support us.

At the age of fourteen, I was accepted into an Early College High School that has allowed me to take dual credit courses since my freshman year of high school. By the time I graduate high school, I will already have my college associate degree that I will have earned through my hard work and dedication. Even though I went through a lot at such a young age, it has shaped me in every possible way. I was exposed to a whole different language and culture, but I was able to succeed through my strong desire of success and dedication.

The next level is esteem which is self-esteem, confidence, achievement, an respect towards other as well as respect from others. I have built up my self-esteem over the years, mostly my mom helped me build up the self esteem that I have, which also goes for my confidence as well.

Imagine moving from a small catholic school to a bigger public high school. I got to experience this my 8th grade year through my freshmen year. Each year at Hermann High School I have gotten to experience something new each year. Going from St.George to Hermann High School has had a huge impact because it has shaped me to be the person I am today. Hermann High School has helped me be more social, come out of my shell, be a leader, manage my time better, and to have more self confidence.
Ultimately, I gained even more confidence in myself and ended up having a successful year, both academically and socially. This has been a significant change for me that helped me to improve my social skills at school and at work. For example, while giving a presentation in front of others, I realized that the social skills I acquired during my freshman year allow me to deliver a clear message without being as nervous. I am also more confident at work, whether assisting customers or working with fellow employees. In conclusion, moving to a large school my freshman year motivated me to overcome my introversion and helped me to be more outgoing, which turned out to be more worthwhile than I could have
I am extremely honored to be eligible for this opportunity to apply for the National Honor Society. Becoming a member of the National Honor Society has been a goal I set for myself since I was a student in middle school. I have been greatly looking forward to this moment for a very long time.

From that one conversation, I placed in the top ten of all North Carolinian 's for my event and got to finally reassure my capabilities in being an adult woman. I had never been more proud of myself knowing that I am so much stronger than I had ever thought. After that week I found a job, started exploring colleges, and made new friends for the upcoming year. That one day changed my perspective on what is ahead for me and who I can be. That is why I aspire to attend the University of Chapel Hill to prove to myself that I am not average, but, I am exceptional and deserve to be at an exceptional
