Then we had to do a poster with a photo of us and the position we are running for. Lastly, we had to make a speech and it was my first time public reading. I was so nervous but I had a feeling I might win this, but sadly I wasn't elected. I was sad and I thought to myself that some things weren't meant to be. This was my first attempt to be in Student council and
Laconia Middle School was the local school for those that lived in Laconia. Knowing most of my classmates and having many friends I felt as though I was at a very good place in life. Attending school everyday was fun for me. I got to be in classes with my best friends, had some of my favorite teachers, worked out a wonderful schedule and played the sports I loved, but if anything middle school was especially important to me was when I began to pick up a fascination for history and also began to realize how the Bosnian War had affected me as a person. Seventh grade was the year I was asked to write an essay about my biggest fear.
In high school, I had this role model, and he was my athletic director. The man would do anything for not just me, but the entire athletic department and all the moving parts. For example, at a tennis tournament on the weekend, I was a site by myself competing in that division held at that site. My tennis coach was at another high school with other teammates. He told me I would be the last one picked up for the night, and I already lost, so to hear that was incredibly disappointing.
My senior year I did not try out because of my busy schedule, but i regret not making more time for it. It is my passion and the band advanced to area this year. Another extracurricular activity I enjoy is Winter Guard, which is all color guard members and no band members. I have been in Winter Guard for two years and I will be going on my third year this year. The first year we got sixth place at State and I was captain my junior year as well.
Now, to end everything off with a good impression. I hope you will consider me to be part of National Junior Honor Society with everything I have stated in my paper. This year for me was an experiment with the clubs. I had only joined a couple because I wanted to make sure I was not too overwhelmed, but I was not so I will be considering to join one or two more to make my life a little crazier. I do intend to do more for my community in the near future and gain even more work experience.
I am interested in being a Link Crew Leader for many reasons. My sister who graduated in the class of 2016 was a Link Crew Leader and from hearing about the duty of being a Leader and how much fun she had excited me to want to become one. Another reason I want to be a part of Link Crew is because I remember my Link Crew day when I was a freshman, and how much fun it was. It assured me that I made the right choice in picking where I would spend my next four years. The activities helped me open up and meet my fellow classmates, which made my first few days of school much easier for me.
Julia Young English 1010 Larson, P.3 Personal Narrative The professional boxer Muhammad Ali once said, “I hated every minute of training, but i said ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life a champion.’ ” This quote became relatable the moment I looked back on the start of my cheerleading “career”. My older sister Aarika cheered for Brighton while I was in 7th grade, she tried convincing me for months to join a team and finally I agreed. I wasn’t very excited, I wasn’t thrilled having to be thrown into something I didn’t know anything about, and I was absolutely terrified about being the “new girl” on the team. I remember that first practice, walking into the gym and being shaken by the loud blaring music and girls running around
The most significant impact that I have made in a community has been through my work as a Student Section Leader. In years past, with the exception of my junior year, the position had generally been given to kids considered the most popular in the school. They ruled through fear, which resulted in intimidating seniors yelling at underclassmen to cheer. The football games (the only games the leaders would attend) generally involved a majority of the people feeling uncomfortable, self-conscious, and waiting for halftime so they could leave discretely. Going into my senior year, I hoped to revolutionize the position.
My self-actualization had inspired me to the same for the members of my beloved club. The title of president did not lead me to believe I was higher than my fellow members. The freshmen from early September would not have grown if the club did not make her feel like she was part of family. My contribution the Monroe College Community were my two helping hands. Criminal Justice students may feel lost in thoughts of doubt.
I don’t remember the exact date, but it was during my freshman year, after a wrestling match against Kentwood high school. We were the two best wrestling teams in our division. So, knowing how big this match was, the whole wrestling advertised and promoted it all week. Our efforts paid off because that following Friday the stands were packed. Students from both schools came to support, but one side was going to leave disappointed.
