As a candidate of National Honor Society, I possess the qualities as it will include leadership and character. I have taken the most difficult honor courses since the beginning of highschool and still maintained a 4.0 GPA throughout.

These things include Advance Placement and Honors classes, clubs, and volunteering for different organizations. I am a hardworking and challenging student, who likes to take Advance Placement and Honors classes and challenge herself. I have taken 3 AP classes previously, and currently enrolled in 2 for senior year of high school.
