They taught me that an educated person is one who can accomplish great things. They pushed me to be that person. They pushed me to do the best I can academically. An accomplishment that I am proud of is being inducted into the, “National Honor Society.” This has proven to me that hard work and dedication pays off and has allowed me to be recognized for all the sacrifices made to achieve high grades in the most challenging courses offered at my high school. This would never have been possible if not for the "push" my family gave me towards education and hard
I enjoy helping out the community and I believe it allows me to become a better person overall. Getting the opportunity to be considered for National Honor Society is such a privilege and I couldn’t think of a better accomplishment one could earn. The main requirements one should fulfill when being considered for NHS are academics, character, leadership, and service. I believe I successfully meet each and every one of those requirements and will continue
Whenever I take on an assignment, whether it is school or work related or anything else for that matter, I always put my heart and soul to it. Many of my friends and teachers would call me over-ambitious, but I do not see that as a negative designation. Something I have learned through experience is that if you want something, you have to work for it. Going to an elementary school with a history of royal children attending, such as our crown Princess Victoria, as well as many talented students, put a lot of pressure on me to succeed. I managed to graduate with straight A’s, and received a scholarship for “excellent study results”, something I am very proud of and still value highly.
My parents are my greatest role models in life and I thank God for giving me such magnificent parents. I wish that God will continue to bless them because they’re such wonderful people. I will do everything I can, to the best of my ability, to make them enjoy and have a happy life because they’re deserving of it. One of the factors and challenges that have most shaped my life was being denied a scholarship from the Tan Siu Lin Foundation during my junior year in high school. After hearing the news that my scholarship application for the foundation had been denied, I studied and worked harder to improve my grades for the rest of the school year.
Thus, my mother decided that I will change my school the next year so for me to transfer I had to really work hard in the last term, term 3, so I can get accepted as an 11th grader. For the next two months that was left of the school year, I stayed up late to study and went to my teachers to seek help. I was eager to show everyone that I can pass this school year. After the two months, I sat for my final exams. I was so nervous and afraid of failing that I will stop my exam for a few minutes to just focus again.
Last year my essay on equality was chosen to represent the school in a district wide contest and won first place.Yet my proudest accomplishment has been the gradual yet astounding results I have seen in our mentoring initiative. We have established a bond with all of our students, discussing more than academics but their personal and social concerns that impact their academic success.A large percent of our eighth grade students have applied to magnet and early college programs. Though we in no way claim responsibility, I believe our program gave them the confidence to take the chance .We were able to expand from a small group of people who saw and issue and hoped to help, to a diverse group of students using their combined skills to make an impact.This experience revealed my genuine passion leading and helping others, working from grassroots to making change. In the future I will expand upon what I have learned thus far continuing to address the issue of education equality and pursue my personal
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
I’ve spent the past ten years of my life at St. Martha and I’ve learnt countless life lessons from my experiences, teachers, and students from the school. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without these experiences. I’m also very happy to be able to graduate with the class of 2018. Despite all the troublesome and reckless our class is, I’m happy to be a part of it. I may
Although I had some pretty hard setbacks, I did have great times as well. Some of the successes I had, before getting kicked out, were being able to make friends with two new teachers, that the school had hired, when the new school year had started. My American Government teacher was Mrs. Elizabeth Adkins and my CP English 3 teacher was Miss Robyn Spangler. Another success I had was making great grades and attending the rest of the time I had spent at the school with my boyfriend, Brandon Crawford.
The Pillars of Success can be meant in many ways to many different kinds of people, but to an individual, such as me who is in currently, a junior in High School is meant through respect, responsibility, leadership, and friendship. These 4 simple words are the pillars of success to become a successful person when graduating high school. As a high schooler, being respectful to not only to one’s peers, but also one’s teachers, janitors, parents, principal or band director is essential not only in high school but in life in general. In my perspective being respectful to everyone around one regardless of authority is more important than any grade one scores on a test or assignment because scoring a number cannot withstand the way one makes their peers feel. Responsibility is another important pillar for countless high schoolers like me because high school is the time when we make decisions that will affect us for a long time to come and it is
Now whenever problems come my way, I am able to conquer them. Not only did I gain from this move, but my brother, sister and mom as well. All of us became closer and were lucky enough to have joined with another amazing family. I started a new school that changed me for the better. This move had a huge impact on my life and without it I

Personally, all of my high school achievements, activities and future goals have and will continue to represent my experience at Little Falls. The most important thing a school can provide to its students is a quality education. Especially within Little Falls High School the tools that faculty, and even other students ensure provide an environment to which anyone can thrive.
Going to Brookdale was a good choice for me. First, going to Brookdale was a good choice for me because I have met good and wonderful people. I met a good professor who cares and wants to help her students succeed. And I met good students in the ALP program. Before coming to Brookdale,

I was really excited to start my second year of high school. I thought it couldn 't get any better! I had all my friends in the same school and most of my classes. Since I wouldn 't be on the bottom as a freshman it was way more exciting to become a sophomore! I had great classes and the teachers were good.
