Integrity is being honest and doing the right thing even when no one is looking. Don Galer’s quote, “Integrity is what we do, what we say, and what we say we do” shows that integrity is affected by strong moral principles and what we do with those. The role of National Honor Society is to celebrate the students who have kept up their integrity throughout their high school career and to keep them on that same path. Integrity is an important aspect in education today because there are so many opportunities to cheat on a multitude of assignments but the students who stay away from cheating will be better off in the long run. For example, while I have been in high school there have been many times that I could have cheated like reading the spark
It just takes a little attention and hard working to get to know someone and to trust each other. I learned this lesson during SEW week and it was amazing to see other people’s true colors and their identity being revealed. I also learned that team work is always better and important than individual or independent work, team work helps you finish work earlier and efficiently than independent does and trusting each other helps to build up a strong team. I in addition learned that you can’t get a perfect relationship with some of the kids because you don’t connect with them and put your prideness aside and blend in with them. When I tried talking to one of the girls, they said about their situation at home and how they ended up the place they are today and also about what they do after you graduate high school.
NHS has impacted my life because the organization has opened my eyes to what an honor society is. Like most members at first I believed that the organization primary focus was about the measure of one 's intelligence and persoal accolades. But, quickly I came to the understanding that the National Honor Society is an orgination whose beliefs are predicated on being a well roudned person. In life there are many narrow minded individuals, who only focus on one thing, such as money, intelligence, or success. But to be a truly well-rounded person you need to have more than one quality.
The majority of the residents value this quality in me and seek me out when a difficult decision needs to be made. However, my demeanor may be a disadvantage if I were to be working with another population or in a different setting. For example, I do not think be successful in jobs at prisons or alternative schools because I may have to be more serious and assertive with my clients. Throughout my life, education has always been one of the most important aspects of my life and I believe my academic achievements demonstrate this. Over the past three years in college, I have maintained over a 3.9 GPA and put much effort into excelling in classes from various departments across campus, but particularly within the
As Charles Darwin once stated “Doing what little one can to increase the general stock of knowledge is as respectable an object of life, as one can in any likelihood pursue.” Le start with character. Character defines a person who they are, how they think and act and having morals. Having good character will help you to be confident in your daily choices, identifying what is important to you, and most importantly, it will help you develop integrity which is moral code for strength, truthfulness and courage that will eventually build relationship with others and a foundation for success, Second is community services, many students view it as an unfortunate requirement to graduate high school while others are view it as a way to seek to serve others. Serving others will make a tremendous difference to you and to those around you, it will also make life worthwhile. Third is leadership and it’s more than being elected as class officer.
That is why I make sure that I engage in different volunteer works, in which I am able to serve without expecting any reward. The second is the Participative Leadership Philosophy. This is because; I value relationship and ideas of people. I think that, as leaders, I can not succeed without the help from the people I serve. Thus, I make sure that I maintain good relation or cooperation with them.
Overall, Amaeze says that I’m “always willing to help others.” Reflecting on this, I think I am seen this way because I feel the need to meet others expectations of me. Although, I can’t help what everyone will think of me, I always want to leave a good impression. I strive to be that person you can come to whenever you are having problems. I desire to be that base of support to others. This stems all
It is easier to cheat on tests than to actually spend time learning the material. Despite this, I rather acquire my grades knowing that I earned them than by being manipulative and sneaky. Throughout my school life, I have faced with several opportunities to cheat. But each time, I have refused to do so. I may not receive straight As, but I am proud and honored to say that I earned my grades through my persistent work.
I deserve this scholarship because I am committed to receiving a higher education. Sophomore and Junior year I didn’t take a study hall because I didn’t want to waste a single opportunity to learn more information. I have put in a lot of effort to do well in school and be active in sports and the community. I would love to be rewarded for my efforts. I take my education and getting good grades very seriously.
Another goal I have is to be a great leader/ role model for not only my family, underclassmen, but my community. Being a leader now will help me show my family, underclassmen, and community that I work hard and that things don’t come easy. I am always willing to help out and make a difference in my community. Having set goals makes me want to work harder, and also making me realize the road will be hard. But with the work ethics I have that I’ve learned throughout high school, and will continue to learn in college will help me accomplish these much easier.
Throughout my childhood, my parents have taught me to be appreciative of my rights as an American and what to many, are privileges, and coming from a modest background, they have instilled me to respect and value others before myself, regardless of their economic status. Because of my parents’ hardships, I have been taught a mantra of “work hard for a better future”, and I later learned that my father’s true dream was beyond achieving personal success, but rather, he wanted to pave a way to success for my sister and me. I believe that it is my responsibility to fully take advantage of my opportunities, because my American Dream is still alive. While I carry my parents’ background, I do not share their history of poverty, and I am met with new open doors and resources that my parents were not as fortunate to have. I want to pursue a higher education, and I aspire to become a stem cell scientist, which will allow me to contribute to research that holds promises of new cures and treatments.
