Throughout high school, I have been involved in a great number of activities. These include athletics, clubs, and taking part in community service. I have played varsity field hockey my freshman, sophomore, and senior year of high school. I also played varsity lacrosse my freshman and sophomore year. The sport that I am most well known for is swimming, which I have participated in for all four years of high school. For my senior year, I am the girl 's varsity swim captain. Other than athletics, the clubs that I am involved in are the National Honor Society and the National French Honor Society. To gain entry into the National Honor Society, one has to have a GPA that is a minimum of 3.5 and be immersed in a variety of activities. As for the
The car screeched to a halt. Like the rain, the traffic was getting heavy. The road was congested with cars, taxis, and buses. The dense Philippine smog filled the car interior with the smell of exhaust fumes. People dashed across the streets, weaving around the vehicles. Through the rain splattered window, I watched young children in tattered clothes approaching the cars ahead with bunches of white flowers in hand, knocking on the windows. “Would you buy our flowers?” one child asked, “We need the money so we can eat tonight.” The annoyed drivers concentrated on the road, ignoring the children. With smiles still on their faces, the children moved from vehicle to vehicle, hoping someone would be generous enough to purchase their flowers. Suddenly, the traffic picked up and the children returned to the sidewalks. As the car moved
I sat quietly in my AP Lang class as my teacher, Mrs. Fisher, announced that the reading competition between the language arts classes called for the book count for September. She stood at the board, marker in hand, staring out expectantly at her large class. Hands shot up across the classroom, and my own nervous hand rose up to join them. Mrs. Fisher happily chalked up the small fortune of books that our class had read. Practically everyone read one or two books, and then there was the occasional student who 'd managed to thumb through five or six. I was one of the last to be called on.
All my life, I was always told that I was so smart and advanced for my age. Everything came easy to me: math, writing, reading, sports, and even playing many instruments. All this came with little work. So I seldom ever had to study or practice for anything. This occurred all throughout elementary and middle school. I was even placed in honor classes, yet those classes still turned out to be quite easy for me. I had nothing less than an A, but that was all about to change once I got to high school.
I have been an active member in multiple school extracurricular activities. Mu Alpha Theta is one of the clubs I part take in, and I have been a member for three years. In Mu Alpha Theta, I participate in inter-school test, practice math problems and attend math competition. Another club I participate in is National Honor Society. I have been a member in National Honor Society for eleventh and twelfth grade. In National Honor Society, I engage in volunteer projects for community service hours which showcase the four pillars of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. I also hold the Secretary position in SADD club. My duties include making announcements, informing members of upcoming meetings, and helping other officers with their duties.
I am a hardworking and challenging student, who likes to take Advance Placement and Honors classes and challenge herself. I have taken 3 AP classes previously, and currently enrolled in 2 for senior year of high school. AP classes have prepared me for college classes which take time to study and comprehend. I have also taken plenty of Honors classes, by having the opportunity to expand my learning.
Business, Science, Spanish Honor Societies- I Show Leadership and the ability to excel at a particular subject. I also do 10 hours community service for each while maintaining over a 95 GPA throughout High School.
Many high school seniors who plan on going to college or get a job may have good grades but they might not have gotten involved with any clubs or activities at school or anywhere else. If a student doesn’t get involve with others or with anything they run the risk of getting rejected because “participation in extracurricular activities will foster creative, social and physical skills that are desirable qualities to colleges and future employers.” ( Kelley). When students get involved with their school it shows others that they enjoy working with others and exploring what they might enjoy doing. It also shows how they can help out others and how they can benefit each other. When it comes to choosing someone for a certain job or school the person
Currently, I am part of the Deerfield/Cambridge cross country varsity team as we seek to return to the Division two state championship for the second year in a row. With my running background, I plan to join a running clubs and to also encourage physical activity around the university. I will help to lead this movement towards being physically active by understanding the sciences behind the body. I am currently involved in both AP Biology and Advanced Chemistry at my school and I have always loved science classes. Within my science classes, I have found a passion for engineering and problem solving that cannot be matched. With my love of sciences, I plan to join engineering organizations at the collegiate level and to lead these organizations to the best they can be. My final interest and talent is in the music department, but specifically band and choir. I love music and have adopted it as a hobby because it inspires me and motivates me through its intricate patterns and rhythms. Band and choir will always be one of my interests at the collegiate level, and I plan to make these groups better in whatever ways
When I was younger my mother would sit my sisters and I aside after school and ask us what we wanted to become when we were older. My two elder sisters always had a different answer they would proudly belt out; a doctor, a vet, a movie star or model. Yet, I never remembered having an honest answer, I simply couldn’t think of anything I wanted to dedicate my life too. However, that was then. Today If my mother were to ask me what I intended to do with the rest of my life I would have a definite answer, one that I could be proud of, a psychiatrist.
It was peaceful day on Earth in the year 2222. The birds were chirping, the wind was gently blowing, and many families were have picnics. That was until a bio-android known as Cell, who was created using the cells of the strongest on Earth, escaped from a lab in the cold, mountains of North America. Cell was created with the purpose of protecting Earth from danger not putting it in danger. Cell escaped the lab he was in because the scientists didn't think that he would try to break out so, the tank he was being held in was only strong enough to hold fish. After he escaped he tried to find a road sign so he could find a city to absorb (though the way he puts it is he drinks people). Though he soon realizes that being so zealous about drinking people was terrible.
Growing up in a smaller than average class of 25 students, I am placed sixth academically. I am an active participant of almost all of the organizations, sports, and clubs my school offers. These extracurricular activities include volleyball and softball, four years; basketball, one year; cheerleading, three years; National Future Farmers of America Organization (FFA), one year; Family, Career, & Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), three years; Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA), three years; National Honors Society (NHS), two years; Yearbook, two years; Student Council (StuCo), three years; Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), two years; Class Officer, two years; Forensics, one year; Band, two years; and Choir, one year.
Every Tuesday night for the past seven years, I have repeated these twelve words at the Chopmist Hill Fire Station. To some, these words are only a string of random adjectives - but to me, this “string of adjectives” is a way of life - a way to live a life of character, integrity, and leadership. The Boy Scout Law has ultimately guided me throughout my life during class, after school, at work, home, and beyond.
I am not part of any sport or athletic pursuits, despite my long legs and the many proclamations that I should be out for basketball. I have not been given gifts in such highly coordinated activities, and I’m afraid I’m too calm and I don’t handle aggression very well. I am part of many musical pursuits, though, and I have been musically inclined since I was very little. My parents said I would always be singing until I thought someone was listening to me, and then I’d go quiet because I was shy. I am part of the Cedar Catholic Choir, of which I just joined this year. We haven’t competed yet in the District Music Contest, but we have performed in concerts in the area, and we were even invited to
