Joining NHS would allow me to grow as a person and do as much as I can for others. In my years as a student at Mahwah High School, I believe that I have displayed various examples of scholarship, leadership, service, and character that I deem would qualify me to join this prominent society. Being a high school student who balances the rigorous work of AP and Honors courses, tough sports, clubs, and volunteering just shows my ability to bend to anything that comes my way. In the beginning of this year, my character abilities
Both years I have helped in foreign language, more specifically, Spanish classes. My junior year was basic; I would grade papers and help organize things around the classroom. This year, as a senior, I have grown more confident with the language and have been able to help the students that are struggling with translations. Serving as help around the classroom, doing a lot more to actually assist the teacher if a student seemed to be struggling. I’ve even helped decorate the classroom and keep books organized and in good shape.
Cynthia Collins is not only a wonderful wife and mother of two but also a wonderfully different form of artist. Collins had been interested in the arts ever since her mother started teaching her how to paint and knit. In high school Collins’s mother pushed her to try an art class so she could learn more. Collins fell in love with the class learning about things like woodcarving, sculpting, painting, and pottery. This passion of arts led Collins to wonder even more about the different forms of art in the world.
Roberts has very good examples of how to make your papers more colorful. Using words such as, resourceful in place of smart, or engrossed instead of busy, are very good examples of a simple change that can make a big (difference) alteration in your essays. I have a very difficult time staying engaged in reading when the same, lifeless words keep popping up. Prior to reading Roberts essay, I would have (never) not in any way, used the colorful words described by Roberts, in my own essays. I am usually straight to the point, using simple wording from my everyday vocabulary.
My Artist Journey Ever since I was in kindergarten, I’ve had a fascination with creating things. That fascination was shown very early with me spending more time building with blocks and other various construction toys. One of my earliest memories was when I was playing with some tinker toys during recess and told the supervisor “This is my contraption”. With my bout of English usage and my growing joy for creation, I soon wrote up my own invention journal. Around the middle of the elementary school I had started to grow out my so called inventions.
Last year my essay on equality was chosen to represent the school in a district wide contest and won first place.Yet my proudest accomplishment has been the gradual yet astounding results I have seen in our mentoring initiative. We have established a bond with all of our students, discussing more than academics but their personal and social concerns that impact their academic success.A large percent of our eighth grade students have applied to magnet and early college programs. Though we in no way claim responsibility, I believe our program gave them the confidence to take the chance .We were able to expand from a small group of people who saw and issue and hoped to help, to a diverse group of students using their combined skills to make an impact.This experience revealed my genuine passion leading and helping others, working from grassroots to making change. In the future I will expand upon what I have learned thus far continuing to address the issue of education equality and pursue my personal
My camera allowed me to show the people around me my life perspective as a person of Autism which is not the same as other people. In elementary school I entered my photos in the PTA sponsored “Reflections” competition and won several awards at school, district and state levels. These opportunities helped me socially as people took note of my work and would praise me for my work, accepting me for who I am. I could gain more acceptance as I was on my middle school yearbook staff. As I transition into high school I began to take photography, graphic design and illustration and animation courses to prepare for my future as an animator.

Seeing Mrs. Groot was the start of something that would further shape my literacy development. In my mind, the years following my time with Mrs. Groot were full of success for reading and writing. Middle school and high school still provided opportunities for me to go to another room during study hall time. That provided me time with instructors who gave me one on one help with the subjects that I was
