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.

If I am selected to this group, I would contribute to the continued growth and success of the National Honor Society by setting high standards in my grades and achievements.
