My sophomore year in high school, I was nominated to be inducted into the National Honor Society. It was an honor to be chosen, seeing that the teachers had to nominate you. Now all I had to do was be accepted. Induction into the National Honor Society required an essay telling about yourself and why you should be chosen. I didn’t think I was very good at telling “why” I should be chosen.
So much has happened to me in my 14 years of living! I’ve changed schools twice, made the Rocky Mountain Ballroom team, and met my best friends ever in the 2nd grade. So much more has happened in my life but these are some of the best things! All of these have helped me get through thick and thin. Changing schools the first time was pretty rough.
National Junior Honor Society The five standard qualities of the National Junior Honor Society are character, scholarship, leadership, service, and citizenship. This is what the five qualities of the Society mean to me and how I show them. A positive character shows honesty, caring, trustworthiness and generosity. I tell the truth even when I have made mistakes. I show caring when I help with the Brownie troop with the young girls.
I want you to know that school is pretty easy for me. Last year I was a part of National Junior Honor Society. My grade point average was a 3.6. I was ninth in my class. I like to play sports.
In high school I was a part of the National Honor Society, where I helped plan some of the events. One event we did was the orientation for incoming freshmen. I helped think of activities, such as a scavenger hunt, for the students to learn about the resources they have available to them. I also helped plan a fundraiser for our club. We were able to have Chick-Fil-A sponser our club.

The Pillars of National Honor Society have influenced my life even before I recognized what they were. For Scholarship, I have spent the past four years dedicating my attention to my studies. I’ve spent hours after school studying particular tests. Matter of fact, I spent my seventeenth birthday taking a mock exam for my Calculus test. I’ve always kept my goal of succeeding in mind and worked hard to make my family proud.
Lower VS Middle school Schools out, now it’s time to go to middle school! Last year, I was fifth grade,and was the worst because we were not allowed to do anything. In middle school,We are allowed to do a whole lot of thing like talk in the halls. Due to the increase of freedom, middle school is better than lower school.
Currently, I am participating in several activities that I believe will be conducive to my goals of becoming a valuable asset to any organization that will have me. In the past few years I have been surrounding myself with activities, academic and otherwise, that I believe to be at least in some way beneficial to my goals in future. My participation in National Honor Society, Student Government, Model Debate, History Bowl, and Tennis each reflect a different aspect of myself that I wish to forge into one cohesive individual. National Honor Society is representative of service and character, Student Government of leadership, Model Debate is for debate and compromise, History Bowl for scholarship, and finally Tennis for camaraderie and teamwork.
In life, failures sometimes happen. It happens to everyone. However, failures don’t define us as a person, but it builds you as one from those experiences. In my seventeen years, I have experienced my own share of blunders, each teaching me a new lesson. The person who succeeds without first failing hasn't really learned anything; in failures, there can be a learning experience and an opportunity to grow.
