I am sincerely honoured and appreciative that I have been selected as a possible recipient of the Schulich Leader Scholarship. Becoming a great leader takes time and experience to cultivate. It means creating a path forward inspiring myself and others to be the best they can be. I believe that I would be an excellent Schulich Leader because I want to make a difference by helping others. With the resources that would be provided to me by being a Schulich leader, I would be able to help others to the maximum of my abilities.

Before Eric and Dylan committed the attack they filmed themselves for a school project titled “Hitmen for Hire” where they swore aggressively, made violent statements, yelled at the camera, and reenacted a school shooting. Later on they filmed videos of themselves shooting weapons and executing the signature poses; where the killer points the gun at the camera, then at his own head, then spreads his arms wide with a gun in each hand and waves goodbye. Most future school shooters to come all performed the same poses and some even admitted to their influence by Eric. In terms of Collen’s proposal stating that Eric was the leader and Dylan followed; this was also true. Throughout the Columbine novel it is noticeable that Eric was the one to induce Dylan into joining him.

On the school-level, I commend myself as a good leader being a class officer of the Student Council in my Freshman and Sophomore years of High School.

I have helped organize events such as SpeakOut last year and the upcoming IdeaCon this year. Moreover, I am in charge of my grade’s finances, including fundraising to donate to a charity and fees for Prom. A few fundraising events in which our council has carried out include a Tie-Dye booth, countless bake sales, raffles, and the Color Fest.

Throughout my experience in Ridgewood High School, I got a chance to show my leadership skills. Showing it by helping others and be responsible. To be in a leadership position encouraged me to show who I am as a student, and help me to build myself by learning from others.

The clubs provide many opportunities including meeting new students, learn from others, and exploring things.

By graduation, every student knew each other and felt connected as Keller graduates. Due to a small student-to-teacher ratio, we were able to bond with our teachers. Many of our teachers continue to serve as our mentors. Our schools also taught us the important of service to our community, enhancing Keller’s already communal feel. From the age of 14, I participated in enhancement projects at my high school and began volunteering for the City of Keller, feeling further connected to the city.
Within a fellowship of individuals, honor is highly esteemed. The sharing of common attitudes and being united through service, binds a society.

Furthermore, being in the organization has made me realize that I can assume the role of leadership and guide my fellow classmates by being a role model. Consequently, I became further aware of the importance of education and have been gradually becoming, increasingly studious.
