I see both concepts in today 's society; however, it seems to me that the Success Gospel beliefs are shown more than Social Darwinism. This may be because people find the Success Gospel reassuring and comforting.

In many advertisements one can see that the majority of America today wishes the best and tries to give everyone the equality they deserve to have to be successful. As a high school student, I am pushed to go to college and get a degree where I can choose to become whatever I want to.

I will be able to ameliorate educationally, culturally, and also on a personal level. My career goals involve teaching students in a college setting. Growing up, I was convinced that I would have my own classroom one day and I am currently on my way of making my dreams come true. My ultimate goal is to empower students to learn and to embrace the power of knowledge.

Of course, I was a student that hoped to attend an accredited university, but in order to, I knew I had to get outstanding grades. I was a hard worker throughout high school, and tried my best every year. I was really motivated to take AP courses as a freshman, unfortunately my school only provided honors, but I found out later that it acted as a substitute, and was accepted just the same. I took advantage of anything they had handed to me. My priorities at this moment are maintaining an outstanding GPA all through high school, and promoting quality leadership in everything I do.
Every semester was goal was to get straight A’s but with balancing school and a child, sometimes there just were not enough hours in the day to get perfect grades. Despite the demanding academic and home schedule I proudly earned high enough grades to be recognized on the WSU Presidential Awards Program: President’s Honor Roll and I was additionally offered membership to the Honor Society. I was ecstatic to be offered membership to the Honor Society. Immediately I envisioned myself at graduation wearing my cap and gown complemented with Honor Society Regalia.

Each of the National Honor Society’s four pillars, character, scholarship, leadership, and service, are a part of what the students of NHS embody in who they are and how they act.

These classes are more rigorous than the regulars classes offered at my school.
There are many activities and classes at Wooster that are of interest to me. One I admire the most is the first-year seminar, where you explore texts, their interpretations, and your own writing. A class like this would be really important to me because I didn 't have something like this in high school. It would have been helpful for me with my transition from middle school to high school and I would take full advantage of it if given the chance to at Wooster. There are aspects about high school that I look for in a college, and the most significant is diversity.
Throughout high school, I excelled in the classroom and I pride myself in this accomplishment. I currently on course for receiving an Academic Honors diploma come graduation at the end of May.
