When I was young, my grandparents taught me that one’s purpose is to serve others and spread love and compassion. In high school, I’ve been able to live that lesson and work to help others. For the last three years, I’ve had the honor of being the BHS Acceptance Club’s president.In 2014, I was part of a campaign to stop the use of slurs at Brevard High and helped create a video to educate the student body on the harmful nature of such words. My sophomore year, I spearheaded our effort to raise money for LGBTQ youth homeless shelters. We created and sold t-shirts, painted faces, and handed out flyers at the 2015 White Squirrel Festival, bringing in $600 for the Trinity Shelter.
Throughout the speech the rhetorical devices that were most present were ethos, parallel structure, and hypophora. The author begins the essay by using ethos. She notes that majority of the students for whom the speech is for are current and past student of hers. Giving her credibility to address them since she once taught them. Another example of ethos is found closer to the end of the speech in which she reminisces on meeting some of the students as freshman and they joy she has at being able to have watch them grow over the course of their high school years with caressing works such as”, and I must say that it is truly a joy to watch and experience you become powerful forces of nature right before our eyes.
Laconia Middle School was the local school for those that lived in Laconia. Knowing most of my classmates and having many friends I felt as though I was at a very good place in life. Attending school everyday was fun for me. I got to be in classes with my best friends, had some of my favorite teachers, worked out a wonderful schedule and played the sports I loved, but if anything middle school was especially important to me was when I began to pick up a fascination for history and also began to realize how the Bosnian War had affected me as a person. Seventh grade was the year I was asked to write an essay about my biggest fear.
Opportunities like this scholarship only come in a lifetime, so being able to partake in it, is such an honor. I truly contemplate that I’m qualified for this scholarship because of my past academic accomplishments and flexible upcoming goals. The day I learned about college, I generated a goal: attend a 4-year university and receive my Bachelor’s Degree of Science. I knew that my goals were not just going to be given to myself, so I started working firmly for them. I started to obtain near perfect grades, which certainly made me stand out in my class and as an individual.
I am interested in being a Link Crew Leader for many reasons. My sister who graduated in the class of 2016 was a Link Crew Leader and from hearing about the duty of being a Leader and how much fun she had excited me to want to become one. Another reason I want to be a part of Link Crew is because I remember my Link Crew day when I was a freshman, and how much fun it was. It assured me that I made the right choice in picking where I would spend my next four years. The activities helped me open up and meet my fellow classmates, which made my first few days of school much easier for me.
I would love to share my experience with others to help ease their transition into college life. An Honors Ambassador should excel in a few skills such as: clear communication skills and being able to connect and relate to a variety of potential students and their parents. They should hold good student values by attending every class, staying involved, or going that extra mile to express the best of their abilities. My communication skills have substantially improved since I started working as a front desk receptionist at McCorkle Sales in Claxton as a high school senior. For example, I must be able to maintain a friendly personality to every incoming customer and
In fact, I am the product of diversity. I was raised in a multi-racial home with four adopted siblings, attended one of the most diverse high schools (Fort Wayne South Side) in the nation and embrace all that is good in individuals. I believe providing diverse standpoints in the classroom enhances education. In fact, I am finishing up research on the ability to remove gender bias in the consumer economics classroom and have data to further research on syllabus organization to enhance student athlete’s academic
Lastly I got to volunteer for OSU SMILE which is STEM based curriculum for majors in science, math, engineering, and innovation. I volunteered for a morning working with middle schoolers who were proclaimed less likely to go to college. The experience was inspiring seeing kids who could do math much better than I could develop ideas and problem solve to real world issues. Many of these kids come from minority groups that traditionally don 't go to college and working with them was invaluable. This project open my eyes to the unique struggles that each minority groups face.
5. schools have already started this program. In the past six months five communities created free two year college programs including statewide programs Oregon and Minnesota and many more that my partner will discuss. Many people in the areas they are doing free community college ,students are getting the education they deserved and worked hard for. It's important for people to agree with me and my partner because President of St. Thomas university, Franklin Casale said “college experience educates the whole individual, and helps to developed the person's values”. College is very expensive and it can sometimes be unaffordable for students.
At my school, I am a co-leader of Sankofa, my school’s Black Awareness Club. We educate the student body on racial issues and have discussions about what it means to be black in our society. Throughout high school, I have helped this club grow from a few students to a flourishing space where students and teachers gather to better themselves and our school. After every event I feel progress being made. From the transformed way the members in my club interact in their community to the increasing number of curious new members, this club are advancing the presence of black students in my school.
During her visit to Whitman, Alexandra made comparisons between her high school years and the high school years of the upperclassmen observed. She noticed the variety of differences between them because during her years there was not much palpable competition but now there was between the students at Whitman. The competition of getting the best grades was a huge deal to the students because their grades were a factor to getting admitted to the college of their choice. Pete a junior student at Whitman, was one of the many overachievers who put in the effort to get the best grades he could even if it meant to risk his own health. Pete was a straight A student who one night took so much caffeine to complete a paper that was due the next day.

Max of 110 words each Leadership/group contributions: Describe examples of your leadership experience and share how you have significantly influenced others, helped resolve disputes, or contributed to group efforts over time. Consider responsibilities you have taken for initiatives in or out of school. I have been involved in my school’s Link Crew program since my junior year of high school. Through this program I have been able to help incoming freshmen adjust to the high school environment, and have gained skills in leadership and public speaking for myself. When I first joined Link Crew, I was not very confident in leading groups or talking to large groups in general.

My goal for after high school is to get into any good university.
