Being a Grade 8 Retreat leader was an amazing opportunity that I will continue to look back on with fondness throughout my life. The Retreat is an annual event that our school holds to help the Grade 8 students build friendships. I remembered my own grade 8 retreat as an influential part of my high school experience, so when I became old enough to become a leader, I jumped at the opportunity. Creating team posters and name tags were some of the more routine tasks that had to be completed before the retreat. However, the more rewarding aspect of the retreat was being able to bond with the children.
During the Denver tournament I realized I was starting to like it. Exploring Denver was one of the best times I have ever had with the team, it was truly amazing.

I have spent many years working to make my community safe and joyous place and in college I hope to do the same. Throughout my years as a Southampton High School student I have volunteered at various events, met new people, and tried my best to make the world a more content place. I have put in hundreds of hours and my entire heart into working to make our town the best it can be. As the Key Club President, Relay for Life Captain, and Class Representative I have learned the true meaning of what it means to be a leader and essentially a teacher. I have learned what it means to be a problem solver and to rise every time I fall.
I never expected to come to college and suddenly be a highly social individual. This change in my personality has given me the opportunity to meet so many new people.

Until I finally found my gift. My junior year I joined this club called DECA which prepares future entrepreneurs for finance, marketing, hospitality, and management in high school and in college. Students compete against other students in different categories. I decided to do DECA because I really liked all of the
To the community and my high school, I’m seen as a great role model and the ideal student. In Pre-K, at Pines Elementary School in Plymouth, NC, I excelled and exceeded my work and was able to move up a grade (Kindergarten). At that very moment, I knew I was a very intelligent and unique girl, I was smarter than average, and I had a gift. Since that moment, I graduated from Washington County Union Middle School (Roper, NC) as salutatorian of my class and I’m currently salutatorian of my class at Plymouth High School (Plymouth, NC). I am involved in many clubs and organizations at my school in which I run top positions as vice president or captain.
Character, scholarship, leadership, service: the four pillars of National Honor Society. These pillars have led me to the person I am today. I became a member of National Honor Society my sophomore year of high school, since then I have volunteered more, focused more on school, and became a better person. I have always been someone to get involved in the community, whether it is within my school or not. I love seeing the difference I can make in someone life, just be lending a helping hand.
The National Honor Society helped me gain communication and confidence skills. It was where the top 20 percent of students gather together to volunteer and build leadership for their current clubs and future dreams. I enjoyed doing community services with this fantastic group because they have helped me become a better leader towards anything I wanted to be. While I was building my leadership I was also building my self-esteem. I was being more confident in meeting new people and giving out a speech in front of a huge crowd.

Participating in this prestigious program will increase the skills I have already accumulated and help me to be more successful in the
My appointment to General McLane’s LINK Crew is an amazing opportunity to gain leadership training and utilize it within my local community. LINK Crew is a faculty-appointed organization that utilizes forty driven juniors and seniors to help transfer students and incoming freshman become orientated to the high school culture and rules.

I have led many club activities such as concession stands, volunteer services, and other community led activities. I have become a great leader to many of these kids as president of our school club, S-Club. I am in very good standing academically and known for my exceptional work ethic. I have matured with each of the trials and events I have encountered that have come my way during my senior year. The skills I have gained over the course of the year will help me towards my main career goal in mind, professional.
Within a fellowship of individuals, honor is highly esteemed. The sharing of common attitudes and being united through service, binds a society. Being a member of the National Honors Society would bring me countless opportunities to further my academic career, allow me to give back to my community, and introduce me to accomplished student leaders who have the same perseverance I do. Academics has been a significant aspect of my life ever since I was little, I constantly try and challenge myself with rigorous courses such as honors, AP, and IB courses, I have also been on the honor roll since middle school.

For the past three years, I have been open to various networks of connections through school and school clubs. For example, becoming a Key Club officer enriched my skills in communication with other students, teachers, and those in my community. By enhancing my communication skills, I have learned how to interact and work with different people to achieve a common goal. With these skills, I learned to set myself apart from the traditional standards by finding myself and developing my own unique characteristics. High school has been an amazing opportunity for me to gain experience and grow as an individual.
My time at East Wake Academy has been well valued; being there has allowed me to pursue opportunities that I would have never imagined could happen. I have done and accomplished a lot while I was at East Wake Academy. In the first two years of being there I made an impact on majority of my teachers. I was a smart student who normally at the end of the year got the highest average or most improved awards in the class. In my last two years I was invited to observe the Zebulon Chamber of Commerce meetings.
