When I was chosen by my teachers to apply to be a member of National Honor Society, I was very honored. This honor is very dear to me and is further validation that I have demonstrated my willingness to work hard, help others and be a contributing member of society. I believe that I possess the qualities to be an asset to this organization because of my hard work, morals, respect, academic excellence, leadership and service to the community. These qualities have been noticed by the teachers around me and I thank my parents for instilling these attributes in me at such a young age. My academic achievements have not always been easy for me.
If I had to use one word to describe me it would be compassionate. This is what the National Honor Society hopes for in a member. I know i’m not perfect and can make mistakes at times, but acknowledging that takes a lot of character. My academic achievements are a result of my determination and drive to ensure that i’ll be able to achieve success in the future as well as serve as role model to the younger siblings and cousins in my family. Getting good grades is a priority to me.
As high schoolers, we will definitely make mistakes as mistakes are our greatest teachers, but when we do make mistakes, we are to take ownership of our actions and our behaviors. Leadership is one other pillar that is important for myriad high schoolers as this is a key element many companies will look for in a person. A person with leadership skills know how to have integrity, have problem-solving skills and have a friendly interpersonal communication. Lastly, a pillar that is important to all high schoolers is friendship. Throughout high school, one will meet countless new people and become friends with them, but they can either be a positive impact on one or a negative impact.
“The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation’s premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students,” as reported by nhs.us. I am truly honored to be part of this organization, as are some of my classmates. Although there are many requirements when determining who is chosen for NHS and who isn’t, the main requirements are academics, character, leadership, and service. I personally believe I fulfill all of those requirements. One of my top priorities throughout high school is to earn good grades, which can be difficult when I’m involved in many things.
All of these attributes are related in that they all reflect my determined mindset in achieving my academic goals. Because I experienced hardships during high school due to my lack of determination, I worked to improve these aspects of myself so that I am not only more confident in my abilities, but also have a goal set in my mind that I can work towards achieving. I practice strategies such as avoiding to carelessly rush through homework by setting enough time to thoroughly complete the task, and investing myself to the tasks at hand. All of these had a direct correlation towards my academic self-confidence, because I now believe in my abilities to work through difficult tasks and
They say some people are natural born leaders. My parents used to say I was one of them as a young child but really I just liked to be in charge. It wasn’t until I started to hold leadership roles in school such as student council and work at my piano studio that I realized a good leader is so much more. Good leaders not only see the big picture of how to get from point A to point B but they also inspire, communicate, and delegate to achieve the best results from a given group of people. The more experience I receive in leadership roles, the more comfortable I become in that role, realizing that I really enjoy leading a group and plan to utilize these skills for the rest of my life.
It means guiding a group of people to success, even if it means that I have to make sacrifices. Scholarship and leadership go hand in hand. Although being a leader requires persistence and diligence, anyone of us can be a leader. A leader can also take losses because they can learn from them. I do consider myself a leader.
I will be using motivation when having to help the children feel rejoicing and not feel like they are worthless to others. Personally, I have been using this motivation skill when talking about my friends. I help my friends by motivating them to do better in school. It makes me happy knowing my friends are doing great in school by a simple push of motivational quotes. My motto is and has always been “Out with the negative in with the positive, reach reach reach.” As a personal experience, in the past I would have problems on being motivated, but I overcame that and now my only goal is to be a psychologist and motivate
I was trained to be competitive and to think out of the box. I was also a prefect, a secretary for my school’s choir and a treasurer for my school’s girl guides. Having to get my work done on time has made me a more organised, responsible and disciplined person. I am also the publicity director of my college’s dance club which proves I have creative and innovative qualities in me. Being a member of my college’s Sky Adventure Club, famous for its saying “Accomplish Or Do Not Begin”, proves that I am a determined person and do not give up easily.
I would like to start my statement by writing about my parents who have excelled in academic achievements. They attained a good position in their career through hard work and skills which they obtained through their knowledge which could never have been possible without an effective educational background They are my role models and the reason for my passion to do my masters as they have always believed that education is divine. Due to this I have developed a keen desire to pursue my graduate studies and research in Management Information System in a University of Excellence, which will provide me an opportunity to work with most modern and sophisticated equipment and intellectual environment by which I would be able to realize my dreams
