By the time I entered middle school, I had greatly improved my English speaking, reading, and writing. I learned to embrace my accent, and take pride in my Hispanic heritage. I still can't believe how much I have grown as a person in the last 9 years. The struggles that I endured growing up, strengthened and prepared me for the future challenges I am yet to face. I will be a first-generation college student next fall, and I know that I will be successful because I have always been able to overcome the obstacles I face.

At the time, I did not know, that Mock Trial was going to change my high school career. During my first year as a trial attorney, I not only improved immensely in my public speaking and communication skills but also made new friends. After a successful year and great scores at two regional competitions, I was truly proud of our team's achievement. However, many members just seemed to be completely disinterested. That is when I decided to step up and ran for the Mock Trial President position with one main goal— to unite the team.
From my teachers to my classmates, the numerous people at this school are a mix of the most wonderful, kind, and encouraging people that I have ever encountered. One of the most memorable experiences that I have had at Prairie Ridge was my participation in a group for new students organized by two great counselors: Mr. Dusenske and Mrs. Berg. I am very thankful for this experience because I was able to become comfortable and happy at Prairie Ridge alongside other students with whom I could empathize. Furthermore, without the encouragement and kindness from my peers or the PR staff, I would not have felt the desire to succeed , nor would I have stepped out of my comfort zone to do
Throughout my elementary, middle and high school career, I have always thrived to do my best. I have remained in the top ten percent of my class throughout all twelve years spent in school. I have made many achievements, especially during my fours years in high school.

After three and a half years, the day had finally come. It was the day that I had been looking forward to since graduating from high school. And it was the thought of the day that kept me going when it seemed far away. When the stressful days of projects, internships, essays, and assignments became overwhelming, I was able to catch a glimpse of the day that would lead me into the future. That day would not only escort me into a promising future, but would allow me to reflect on my accomplishments and show appreciation to my support team that had brought me there.

“This will be my first year with Conifer; my second year teaching,” said John Shipley, the newest member to Conifer High’s athletics department. “I’m very excited to be a part of this school, staff, administration and the great community.” “[Like the Freshmen,] I’m lost finding rooms,” said David Shirk, Conifer’s new Algebra and Geometry teacher. “It’s really hard to get a grasp on the layout of these rooms and the room numbers. But [this year] is going to be excellent! I feel at home already and everybody is so nice and helpful.
The National Honor Society is an exceptional organization that allows students to help the needy, children, the elderly, and non-profit organizations. I would be excited to join such a society because of the limitless opportunities it presents to me. Joining NHS would allow me to grow as a person, and do as much as I can for others. Throughout my years as a student, I have shown great examples of scholarship, leadership, character and service that I believe would qualify to join this prestigious society. As Wikipedia defines it, the word scholarship means academic study or achievement; learning at a high level.
I worked at Hofstra Summer Camps last year, and I can honestly say that that summer was the best summer of my entire life. I spent the summer surrounded by alumni of the school which made me realize just how diverse Hofstra really is. I also noticed, while walking around the campus, that Hofstra is one of the most prideful schools I have ever seen, and I want to be surrounded by all of that, everyday. The sheer amount of activities the school offers, from sororities and fraternities, to academic interest clubs, I have never seen a school more well rounded in all aspects of student life. My uncle, who is an alumni of the school, told me the best years of his life were spent at Hofstra, and that made me realize just how much I wanted what he had.
This field trip was a way of celebrating that we all achieved a good academic year at school. I really like that my school rewarded us for doing well in our classes, but they did it at the end of the year for a grand finally of the school year. I believe at the end of that year was when I started being a good student. I found out how important it was to get good grades. As soon as everybody was on the bus we started our trip to Six
