From the start of high school, I have been a proactive student by being involved, demonstrating character, and overcoming challenges. I believe I have taken the initiative to make not only changes within community but also better understand my aspirations in life. Moreover, my involvement in community services has assisted a diversity of individuals in various events. Certain service clubs allowed me to realize the needs my community pertains, comprehend various cultures, and establish a level of respect toward their heritage. Students Together
I believe that a leader is someone who knows how to properly guide others, as well as rely on others when needed. I also believe in leading by example as the bible says in Titus 2:7, “In everything set them an example by doing what is good...” I believe that how I behave, how I interact with teachers, others adults, and students can provide a positive influence for my peers.

The impact of ethical decision-making relies on the soul’s ability to influence the body and mind similar to how I employ structured influence on students, staff, and parents.

Radiography is a constantly evolving area and my interest in technology keeps me inspired to learn new methods. Patient care is the essential key to becoming a good professional and I have experience working with patients and vulnerable people. Developing professional relationships with patients and their family members are skills I have acquired as a part-time healthcare assistant during my school holidays. Attending boarding school has made me a very empathetic person as I was a prefect and leader to students who had been recently enrolled.
During my undergraduate education I had the privilege to serve as the student representative on Appalachian State University’s BSW curriculum committee. I enjoyed being able to voice my opinions about how the BSW curriculum could grow and mature. With that being said, I have looked extensively at UNC Charlotte 's MSW curriculum. I appreciate the emphasis on both work with individuals at the micro level as well as organizations at the marco level. This curriculum aligns well with my interest in working with families.

The junior mentoring program has also helped to think ahead in my life and start saving for future expenses, and finally this program has also enlightened me on my career choice seeing that I have fellow classmates attempting to reach the same career goals I have.

As a co-leader for the Greater Bethesda AMSA chapter, I work to support the professional goals of the NIH post-baccalaureate fellows through hosting panel discussions, group meetings regarding the professional school application process, and organizing mock interviews. In addition, I organize community and volunteer opportunities such as Kids Enjoy Exercise Now.

Working as an officer for AMSA has taught me the value of being a co-leader, that is working with other leaders to achieve a common goal and how to plan events based on the needs of the student community.

For instance, involving myself in community service like Relay For Life, not only aided me with the chance to assist my community but has helped me to develop citizenship and service. Furthermore, being in the organization has made me realize that I can assume the role of leadership and guide my fellow classmates by being a role model. Consequently, I became further aware of the importance of education and have been gradually becoming, increasingly studious.
