I learned that any barrier you face there is always an option to overcome it and be successful. I can grow by working my hardest on my school work and never giving up, even when things get hard. I also learned that time management is a very great skill to obtain at this time in my life, because college courses take time, effort, and lots of patience. I must give myself time to prepare for class work and especially exams. Having a schedule for my school work and my personal life is the best choice to help me stay on track.
Junior year was a bit challenging for me. It was not challenging because of the work, but I joined a career program. I had to keep up with both of my schools.

In closing I would like to say that I'm elated that I chose to pick up this book and run with it. It truly changed my perspective on struggles or the "mountains" of my life.

Every semester was goal was to get straight A’s but with balancing school and a child, sometimes there just were not enough hours in the day to get perfect grades. Despite the demanding academic and home schedule I proudly earned high enough grades to be recognized on the WSU Presidential Awards Program: President’s Honor Roll and I was additionally offered membership to the Honor Society. I was ecstatic to be offered membership to the Honor Society. Immediately I envisioned myself at graduation wearing my cap and gown complemented with Honor Society Regalia. The thought of wearing the regalia was a significant visual indication of the hard work I did and I was eager to show it off to my family, friends and fellow
By going on this trip, I hope to further develop both my leadership skills as well as my independence. As mentioned earlier, I am an introvert who struggles to get out of her own bubble. The Honors Experience is all about getting out of one’s bubble and not being afraid of change. This trip is my chance to pop that bubble and do something I would have usually never even considered, for fear of the unknown. The confidence I gain from this experience will encourage me to get more involved and speak up for myself, as well as others, a quality that every Honors wildcat should have.

Acceptance into the University of the Pacific will allow me the opportunity to greatly expand my knowledge and grow into the mature and professional person that I have always known that I can
To be an honors student takes a lot of hard work. There are many factors that go into being a successful student. I believe that you must be determined, organized, and disciplined. These three qualities are the key to succeeding in your goals because I have used them all throughout my high school career, and plan to use them in college. Determination is the quality that makes you keep on trying, and to never give up, even if things get difficult.
The National Honors Society places a strong emphasis on the cornerstone traits of character, leadership, and service within the school and outside of school. I have met, and exceeded these qualities by being honest, assisting others, and participating in school activities. My character has always been an important aspect within my life. This is because character is comprised of honesty, selflessness, and compassion. No matter what the situation is, it has always been important to me to be honest with not just those around me, but with myself.
My parents perpetually encourage me to have a commitment to education, it enables knowledge, power, and freedom. They teach me to go after my dreams, and always remind me “Nothing comes easy, you must work hard for your goals.” When I first came to the U.S, I was too young to understand my educational disadvantages. Throughout the years, I relentlessly worked hard to excel in my academics, my persistence allowed me to consistently exceed expectations. In the spring of my freshman year, I was selected as a National Honor Society student by my school. This has been my biggest accomplishment.
The National Honor Society is a top-notch group that many want to be part of, but for all of the wrong reasons. There are many traits one needs to successfully participate in the group; Scholarship, Leadership, Service, and Character. During the course of my life, I dedicated it to learning new subjects and striving for top marks in my classes. Learning is an immense passion of mine that will continue to thrive. Throughout the years, I observed that certain people led their group to the correct path.
I want students to push themselves harder than they though possible, which has been modeled by my professors pushing me to do the same. Teachers are role models to show students that it is okay to not be perfect, but it is about trying to improve and persevere. George Fox has teachers that modeled and let me practice my own pedagogy, which will allow me to be a confident and effective educator. By finishing my education at George Fox I can show my students what it is like to set goals and finish them. I am a proud first generation college student and I want my students to know that they can do what ever they set their mind on.
That is what this life is about. You sacrifice for those you love. That is what my parent’s did. They brought my sister and I to this land of opportunity and even though they used their chance on us, their chance to follow their dreams, I will follow mine for them. People always ask me how I do so well in school, how I have the energy to do all the homework, study for the tests, do extra curricular activities, and never give up.
