At the age of fourteen, I was accepted into an Early College High School that has allowed me to take dual credit courses since my freshman year of high school. By the time I graduate high school, I will already have my college associate degree that I will have earned through my hard work and dedication. Even though I went through a lot at such a young age, it has shaped me in every possible way. I was exposed to a whole different language and culture, but I was able to succeed through my strong desire of success and dedication. I am thankful for every challenge that I had to go through because if it was not for them, I would not be the person I am
It is an extraordinary honor to be considered as a candidate for the National Honor Society. Being considered means I have achieved my goal in demonstrating my determination- in school and outside of school- and my willingness to aid people in my community. Being a part of such a prestigious organization is an enormous responsibility to which I will fully devote my time. Ever since I was a freshman, my goal was to work diligently to be among the highest scholars and to be accepted into this scholarly “hall of fame”. Through my relentless hard work and perseverance, I believe that I possess the four characteristics of a National Honor Society member- leadership, service, character, and scholarship.
By enrolling in some of the most difficult classes at my school, my work ethic and persistence has grown. I have also developed a strong desire to meet the challenges in my life, which will prepare me for the many new challenges later on. With this in mind, I feel that the MCC Honors Diploma would benefit my academic and professional future by demonstrating my capabilities to other schools, and it would also be an amazing reward for my activities and work here at
I have been involved in Campus Congress throughout all of my high school years. I have held a number of executive positions including Lead Grade Representative, Executive Secretary, Treasurere, Vice- Speaker, and Speaker, and I have worked with Administrators to implement school reforms such as upgrading software systems, increasing internet capabilities, acquiring IPads for the library, and introducing a number of charging stations throughout the school in order to encourage students to bring their own technology to school.

Joining NHS would allow me to grow as a person and do as much as I can for others. In my years as a student at Mahwah High School, I believe that I have displayed various examples of scholarship, leadership, service, and character that I deem would qualify me to join this prominent society. Being a high school student who balances the rigorous work of AP and Honors courses, tough sports, clubs, and volunteering just shows my ability to bend to anything that comes my way. In the beginning of this year, my character abilities
In order to provide services to students or members of the community, it is necessary to have good character. Leadership is one of the most important traits to have, not only in school, but community too. In school I take up the leadership role by helping my classmates and answering their questions about a topic in class. I am a Senior High Student Council member; I have been an active member since my freshman year. I have helped plan and participate in events put on by the council to ensure things run smoothly.
I have not only grown academically but university has taught me how to be confident, independent and dedicated. I consider these to be my strongest attributes, most importantly the independence I have taken on. This has stemmed from the switch from being mothered and encouraged by school teachers to holding big responsibilities. The independence I have established has helped me come to grips with the fact that It is up to me to study and complete my assignments on time and to the best of my ability. I understand that I must maintain these skills to be successful at university.
For instance, I did wrestling in high school and I became one of the captains during my senior year. I learn the essence of leadership and what it meant to be a leader for others. I serve as a role model through my diligence and discipline at not only practices and meets, but also during school. I motivated my teammates on and off the mat through my academic excellence. I am now currently the president of the Filipino student association at Houston Baptist University.
