The way I was raised has influenced me to be confident, mature, and selfless to not only get through life, but to succeed in it. I make it my obligation to signify the four pillars of National Honor Society everywhere I go. I know that I am evaluated on my character and abilities in and out of school. That makes me responsible to represent not only SHDHS, but my family, my clubs, and my sports
The National Honor Society gives an opportunity to all dedicated students to contribute to the community. This wonderful organization is made up of responsible, driven, leadership, and punctual students. This organization recognizes students with outstanding grades and academic skills, which I possess. The National Honor Society would be a great opportunity for me to expand my wings and contribute to the school that has given so much to me. I know that all my efforts to maintain a good average and a good standing in High School will be fruitful if I am given the opportunity to participate in this organization that is made up of people that are determined, devoted, and above all aspire to help others.
Being nominated to be a member of the National Honor Society is an honor in itself. I was certainly looking to be a part of this prestigious honor society since the beginning of my high school career here in United States. The organization will give me an opportunity to work with the exemplary students who share and vision the same goal as I do, the betterment of the society. I believe I can contribute my knowledge and attributions towards this society as this organization do many great things.

“The purpose of getting power is to be able to give it away.” These are wise words once spoken by the founder of the National Honor Society, Aneurin Bevan, explaining the dynamic of the NHS. Fundamentally, the National Honor Society is an esteemed organization that recognizes the achievements of treasured students and helps them advance their influence on their community, primarily in order to help others. In my past endeavors and years spent attending school, I have surpassed expectations in the fields of academics, character, leadership and service, and intend to use the platform of National Honor Society to further advance my presence in these areas. In my academia, it is apparent that I have excelled farther than most. I have retained
Consequently, these are optimal years for “developing future leaders whose decisions and actions will reflect universal human values”. The development of leadership abilities in youth, asserts Heath (2005), “should rank high on the agenda of school administrators, teachers, parents, and all who work with and on behalf of young people”. Through instruction, guidance and practice, these skills, like any other, can be learned and developed by all. Gardner (1987) found that skills
I demonstrate leadership skills, reliability, ethics, and kindness. Becoming a member of the National Honor Society would aid me in developing my skills, giving back to the community and it would greatly benefit me as a scholar. The National Honor Society would also give me a safe place to network and exchange ideas with other like-minded individuals.

All my life I had always loved to help others and set an example. I believe that community service through the program National Honor Society, has greatly impacted my life by showing me how I can put my underlying motivation and cast a full fire of passion. I have always loved to teach and motivate others to try their hardest in school to achieve something above of their expectations. From my love of teaching, tutoring and trying to help understand in "student talk" has always been a strong point to show how rewording something can greatly impact a student's understanding which is all worthwhile. I always make sure to keep my grades up and dedicate time to studying and persevering which has influenced others around me to follow my path to achievement.
Leadership is being bold enough to provide a vision, and humble enough to recognize achieving it will take the efforts of many people. It means being an example, a contributor, and a motivator. Leadership is inspiring, and empowering a team to work towards a common goal. Leadership is understanding people's talents, and temperaments and creating an environment to let others soar to their highest potential. Through out my high school career leadership has been a big part of my life.

In particular peer relationships can provide a range of positive outcomes that can influence a students social and emotional wellbeing. Welch (2014), highlights that there are many varieties of peer relationships, all of which can have positive effects on the associated students. Welch (2014), states that peer relationships provide students with companionship, emotional support, social identity and a sense of safety and belonging. These aspects of peer relationships are imperative to the academic success of students.
Professionalism is an important conduct of individuals in every job, career, and even some students while attending school. I understand professionalism to be the art of carrying oneself, handling, and resolving situations with the utmost integrity, confidence, and respect. By embodying professionalism while at your job, career, profession, and while attending school in many circumstances, it allows for situations, conflicts, and relationships to be in favor of a positive outcome. Being professional is inclusive of the actions and behaviors of an individual. Actions will line up with what the individual says; showing integrity and trustworthiness to employers, customers, and those who are interacted with.
