In my junior year of high school, I came to dominate the role of a junior class representative in the English Honors Society, a secretary in Mu Alpha Theta, and a junior class representative in Science Exploration Club. In my senior year, I became the president of Mu Alpha Theta, vice president of English Honors Society, and event coordinator of the FIU Science Club. Due to the difference in hours of commencement for the AAA program and for Dr. Michael Krop, my peers and I could not engage in the activities conducted in our main high school. Thus, through the roles I presided over, I brought back the high school experience that the AAA program
Especially among society and in high school it is often difficult for someone to come out. At this time, the norm in high school was, if you were homosexual then you lose a certain level of popularity. In the novel, Brad a star high school quarterback who is also secretly homosexual would conform to this social norm. Charlie states, “Friday, there was another party. And this time, Patrick and Brad got stoned…
Money was also a motivating factor because I wanted to have a career that could pay well and secure my retirement that way I can build a family. From past experience working with investors I noticed that the majority of them are vehement about saving money and most of them had a college education. Lastly, the strongest motivating factor was my future career and interests. I have always enjoyed being a manager
I was told early into the semester by my professor Rogerio Zapata that we needed to write a six page essay on a regular meeting or a school board meeting. In fact in our first exam some of the questions were about the paper we needed to write. In addition Professor Zapata remained us every class to attend a meeting. As a high school student the first thing I did was to going ask my principle if she knew when the next school board meeting was going to be held. She give me great information and told me if I needed more about the meeting to go to the school website.
I believe that I represent self-restraint very well. In school, it is very easy to give in to procrastination and laziness and let your grades slip. During my freshman year, I receive the first B I had ever gotten, because I was unaware of how much work I would need to put into my high school education after I breezed through middle school. After this, I have shown self-restraint and ignored the indulgence of laziness and relaxation and have kept my grades since to all A’s. I have also represented accountability.
In my time knowing Bernard, he has always had a spirit of serving others. In whatever he does, he aims to help people; whether it is being a resident assistant; helping his residents have a fun college experience and someone to confide in, serving as a smooth transition mentor; guiding incoming students from disadvantaged background in order to ensure that they succeed in college, or serving as a destination X mentor; helping high school students see the importance of a college education. I have heard him tell his “failure” stories of struggling during his freshman year of college and having to work extra hard to improve his G.P.A. Although most people would be afraid
Being the president of the National Honors Society chapter at my high school, allowed me to experience what it’s like to disagree and collaborate on ideas for things as simple as shirts, to big events such as cancer walks and fundraisers. Being a part and in charge of a group as large as our NHS, allowed me to understand what it was like to not only take what you want into consideration, but what 90+ members want as well. This enlightenment began when we had our first officer meeting for the new school year. Topic of discussion was one that would be a breaking point for us: deciding if we should get t-shirts and polos, or just polos.
It was a rude awakening to the reality of high school to be apart of this team as a freshman. In retrospect, I believe that my transition into high school would have been smoother if I would’ve asked to be on the Junior varsity. Although this would have hindered my growth as a player, it’s a sacrifice I realize now that would have been worth it. The commencement of this harassment came during the start of school at lunch, a couple weeks
How I Graduated High School Have you ever procrastinated for so long that it finally caught up to you? Well that was the story of my life in my senior year of high school. To me, high school wasn’t about learning and doing school work, it was more about hanging out with friends and living a life of leisure and free time. Needless to say, by the end of my sophomore year, everything changed and I learned things the hard way. Getting your responsibilities out of the way, and taken care of is always better done soon rather than later.
Intro My brother, being a ninth grader at the high school, is constantly reminded of the importance of college and his performance in high school. I want to start looking into colleges but i don’t know where to start. The thought of getting left behind in society because I didn’t look for a college is nerve racking, but I already knew some things.
So I decide to talk with elementary teachers over the summer to see if I can get a sponsor. The first teacher I ask said she was in charge of a program that will teach many new activities to children. By the end of summer the school cancel the entire program. I did not give up. I talked to more and more teachers and each one of
“Yes, I have to be apart of this.” was my immediate thought when I opened the letter. I did a lot of research and asked a few people about what I would need to take part in this group. “The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation 's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to recognize those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, service, leadership, and character.”
During her visit to Whitman, Alexandra made comparisons between her high school years and the high school years of the upperclassmen observed. She noticed the variety of differences between them because during her years there was not much palpable competition but now there was between the students at Whitman. The competition of getting the best grades was a huge deal to the students because their grades were a factor to getting admitted to the college of their choice. Pete a junior student at Whitman, was one of the many overachievers who put in the effort to get the best grades he could even if it meant to risk his own health. Pete was a straight A student who one night took so much caffeine to complete a paper that was due the next day.
I was a student worker at East Los Angeles College for two years where I assisted in the matriculation office. Matriculation is a process that promotes and enhances student access into the California Community Colleges. The Matriculation Process provides admissions, assessment, orientation, counseling, and follow-up to all students enrolled in community colleges. During the two years that I worked for the matriculation office, I had the opportunity of having constant contact with students on an everyday basis, which has contributed to my inspiration of becoming an academic counselor. I was assigned various tasks such as proctoring students while they took their assessment tests or screening students for the assessment test.
This artifact is a research paper that we had to write for my English 12 class. We could pick any topic of our choosing as long as we could find 12 credible sources that support our topic. The topic that I chose was the history of racism. I felt like people in today 's society doesn 't realize how racism started and the effects that it could cause. This artifact relates to the page "writing samples" and to English 12 because it is a wring sample that I wrote in my senior year of high school.
