This led to the creation of my startup: The Global Hiker. It will create a community of like-minded travelers and eliminate the fear of traveling by giving the tools necessary to explore, expand & enjoy. I have traveled to over twenty countries through out my life and I have seen two common trends: the world is full of good people and in order for the human race to evolve we need more helping hands to combat the suffering that takes place. Whether it is pursuing my start-up, joining the Peace Corps, or both I see it as the path that I must at least attempt to engage in. “You have not lived today until you have done
From the age of 14, I participated in enhancement projects at my high school and began volunteering for the City of Keller, feeling further connected to the city. My desire to service my hometown continues to this day, and I continue to volunteer through my city every time I come back during my school
After taking care of my educational responsibilities and extra-curricular activities, I always find the time to involve myself in service-oriented activities. For example, during the last year, I completed 68 hours of community service. And, this year I hope to devote more hours to activities that will benefit my fellow students and my community. I have great plans in mind like organizing service trips, doing fund raisers, reserve one Saturday each month to community service to bring a smile to someone’s face. Additionally, this year the Interact members have selected me as a treasure for the school year 2015-2016; giving me the chance to use my leadership skills to provide a valuable service to my classmates.
My personal qualities, experiences and values directly coincide with the Henrietta Schmoll School of Health’s Mission Statement. I am an extravert who cannot go more than a day without interacting with people and these interactions bring fulfillment to my daily life. The majority of my day to day life revolves around relationship-center activities. For example, I work as a coach for children from the ages of three to fourteen, I volunteer as a tour guide at my University and I lend my time to organizations such as People Serving People (the local homeless shelter) and the Special Olympics. My happiness is influenced by my ability to make those around me happy and I pride myself in my ability to make instant and long lasting connections.
She expanded her skills to a service to military family caseworker along with acquiring disaster training and teaching others in CPR/First Aid and babysitting – all before graduating high school. During college, her love for the community expanded as she joined Circle K International, the collegiate form of Kiwanis International, and at her first meeting volunteered to chair Community Services and Awareness Week, an entire week dedicated to community awareness and volunteer projects. She was recognized by the Florida District as Outstanding Club Member for her work and elected to serve as Citrus Lieutenant Governor and the District’s Convention Chair. For her
I take every position I am put in very seriously. I currently work in the Chancellor’s Office, so I have a repertoire of fun facts about Texas Tech that I could entertain girls with. I have served as a youth camp counselor before, and am good at connecting with other students. I love to meet new people, so having a whole week of meeting PNM’s would be so fun to me.
Being captain required me to help my team after hours as well as provide insight on to them on how best to prepare for the competition. During 4-H camp over the summer, I was one of three counselors assigned to a cabin of 25 prepubescent girls, for whom I
In the future, I would like to become a medical assistant. This career seems to be a perfect match for me because I have been an EMT for 16 years. I have always had a passion for helping people in their time of need, ever since I was a little kid. I would be the person out on the playground trying to help others, when they got hurt. I would be the kid when the fire department came to the school, for a public relations event, that would be right in the middle of them asking questions.
I have gone to school in Elcho my whole life. Elcho has given me countless chances to participate in everything. As a current member of student council, Students against destructive decisions ( SADD), Forensics, Cheerleading, and Golf, I value these opportunities. Extra curricular activities have taught me to be responsible, work with a team, and untimely made my highschool career one to remember. Being so involved in high school has forced me to be responsible.
For the past three years, I have been open to various networks of connections through school and school clubs. For example, becoming a Key Club officer enriched my skills in communication with other students, teachers, and those in my community. By enhancing my communication skills, I have learned how to interact and work with different people to achieve a common goal. With these skills, I learned to set myself apart from the traditional standards by finding myself and developing my own unique characteristics. High school has been an amazing opportunity for me to gain experience and grow as an individual.
During my high school years I have worked at Little Caesars. I fulfilled my community service hours by attending the NJROTC ceca drill meet competition. Both of these positions required skills to work with customers and co-workers. In my opinion I have learned how to effectively communicate with other higher up personal and deal with difficult situations
Similar courses, coupled with photography offerings, would allow me to further advance my skills. After traveling solo in India and Nepal during the past two summers to teach English, I grew inspired and eager to experience as much as possible in the world. I am interested in a global classroom and eventually studying abroad, possibly in Africa and Asia. Lewis and Clark’s Indian Region Area Study Program would allow me to take
However, my favorite volunteering experience was getting to be a “Buddy for Special Olympics”. I was paired with a young girl named Kara with Down Syndrome and the biggest appreciation for life. I walked her to each of her events and cheered her on from the sideline. Even when she didn’t technically win she was so grateful for the opportunity to compete. She gave me a different outlook on life and taught me how to be grateful for every opportunity that comes my
The goals that I hope to accomplish in the next six months is completing a season of water polo, be an officer of the FCA club, be on the swim team, and grow further on my praise and worship team at my church. I hope that I am still upholding my 4.0. GPA and continuing to brighten people’s days. I have pushed myself past my limits and worked really hard on keeping my straight A’s and withholding my starter spot on the junior varsity water polo team. I have supported my goals and plans already by getting help from my parents and my avid teacher.
Through student council this past winter, I was introduced to a new type of innovative charity called VING. This organization gives teenagers across the country the opportunity to give back to those in their community that have inspired them in an unique way. A woman who truly inspires me with her spirit of determination, strength, and love immediately came to my mind. My family mentors a woman, Janaee, who has been diagnosed with Leukemia, has two young children, one of whom is partially deaf, and she has been battling financial hardships, faced homelessness, and has fought to maintain custody of her children. The story touched the hearts of those at the VING project so much that they decided to allow me to give Janaee the boost she needed
