Have you ever felt alone or isolated from the world? Well from being in middle school, I’ve learned that some people feel as if the world revolved around them. They do things they never would’ve done. Yet, they still do it just to try to fit in the crowd. From many experiences, I have learned that it’s ok to not be with the crowd since the crowd isn’t always the best option.
I am so thankful for everything I have in my life, like my family and friends, and reminding myself of that gives me a positive outlook on life. When something goes wrong, I am quick to remind myself that it can be worse, and that everything will be fine. I know that many more people have it hard out there, but appreciating what I have brings happiness into my life. My friends also give me joy, making me laugh about every little thing in our conversation. When we talk about the future, no one is pessimistic.
I used to be a shy kid. The kind of hiding-behind-your-mother’s-legs kind of shy. In elementary school I did not approach anyone to come and play with me. In middle school I was used as a messenger between fighting girls. I didn’t want that job, it was a job that was given to me, forced upon me.
Besides, school wasn't that easy for me because I didn't know English and I couldn't communicate with the people around me nor the teachers. I was the only kid who looks different in my class and has no ideas what the teacher is talking about. It was uncomfortable for me to be around my classmates, but everyone in the class seems to be nice to me because I was the new kid. They didn’t have problems with me and I didn’t have problems with them. As time goes on, I began to feel
I was no longer the shy girl in class, but I was much more confident and even gained new friends. From a young age, I learned to be very independent, and this independence has led me to gain leadership skills that have proven valuable in school. As Vice-President of National Honor Society, I have helped take charge of more than a hundred members and helped direct and organize community service events. Such as the Harvest Fall Festival or visiting nursing homes
You have touched my heart, and to this I am truly thankful. Thank you for sharing your experiences. I learned a lot from you. And this experience and learning, I will always treasure. To my co – thesis adivsees, friends, and blockmates, this journey would not have been bearable if not for you guys.
Throughout my high school career, I was forced into many situations where I was challenged to connect with my peers and serve as a role model for future students. Whether it be my involvement in the school marching band, or helping students in community tutoring sessions, I have always made it my goal to better the people around me through my own efforts. Throughout my high school career, I have put forth my best effort to connect with my peers, transform individuals, and make a difference in my community. Joining the school marching band at the beginning of my freshman year of high school was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I’ve spent hundreds of hours working with my peers, building friendships while working toilsomely to perfect one show each year.
While I was there, I always felt different and I never really fit in - I always felt different and I wasn 't sure what was necessarily different about me. Sexuality and gender was never spoken about at my school at the time, which is something I wish would change. When I started going to my high school in grade 9,
During high school my grades would be slipping, but no one ever asked me why or even motivated me to work harder. I would like to be that support for children one
Is there any of your friends, who loves smiling and keep saying ‘hello’ to everyone in a very cheerful way? There are people with such character and we can notice that they are the kind of people who have lots of friends. They deliver cheerful ambiance to their surroundings, so everyone always expects their presence. They make up their mind to be happy all the time, and they deliver positive energy to others. Believe it or not, some people with such character, whom I have known so well, are successful on their lives.
I look back to freshman year in high school. I didn’t know anybody and was so eager to have friends, but the mistake I made was to surround myself with people that didn’t have my best interest in heart. In the result of that I wasn’t focused in school, my family, or my own self. Peer pressure can be difficult.
Most ninth graders do not want to draw attention to themselves at school. This is why I even surprised myself that my freshman year I ran for treasurer of Key Club. Being Treasurer would not only mean that I was in charge of the money, but also that I would have to stand in front of an auditorium full of students and talk to them about upcoming events and dates. Just a few years earlier, I never would have had the courage to do this. I have come so far from who I used to be and it is all because of performing.
I was delighted after receiving the letter informing me I was eligible to become part of the National Junior Honor Society. It would be a privilege to be accepted into such a prestigious group as the one listed. The NJHS is known for helping students learn leadership skills and unlock their full potential and I firmly believe that I would love to be a part of it. Being the fun loving people person that I am I have no problem working with other kids and or adults. I have many qualities that I would love to contribute to the
I feel that this volunteer project does benefit both me and the recipients, because I get to experience such an amazing act of kindness that changes a person 's life forever. It also benefits the recipients, because they get to have their lives changed forever. The event itself takes a lot of hard work, and has to involve as many people as
Other similar qualities he has is being a good worker and follower. I always try to please my friends by making them laugh or agreeing with them. Lennie tries to please his friends by emulating their actions and being nice to everybody regardless of who or what they are. I try to be nice to everybody as well so we have that in common. Another quality we share is being a good worker.
