At the age of fifteen, the end of my freshman year in high school, I started golf. Being in a sport I had to keep up a high grade point average I worked very hard to maintain a 4.0 GPA on our 5.0 scales. Therefore, I continued to work hard to stay up in the ranks and also stay eligible, I was able to receive an invite to join the National Honors Society. I was excited that all my hard work was paying off not only for just being eligible to play golf, but to also be allowed to join a very elite and well-known Society. Golf motivated me and helped me have a positive look at my schoolwork, which also helped me receive my Golf Scholarship, to the Colorado
My involvement in Science Olympiad includes my position as president of the club. As president of Science Olympiad, I am responsible for running practices and supporting my teammates in preparing for their events, all while preparing for my own events. I provide advice to my teammates for how to tackle studying for a certain topic or building a certain system, along with resources to solve problems on their own, and advocate for their needs to the team’s coach. My involvement in math team includes my position as vice president of math team and my selection onto Chicago’s regional math team. I lead my school’s math team by performing well, as evidenced by rankings in the state, and by organizing the efforts of my team.
Bobby Jones: The Golf Master What would it be like to win over ten major golf championships? Bobby jones was born on March 17, 1902. Jones grew up in atlanta georgia, where he would go watch club pro’s at the East Lake Golf Club. He would try to imitate the swing of the club pro’s. At an early age, Jones was known for being a golf prodigy who quickly grew into one of the greatest golfers and created the masters tournament that increased competition in the sport.
Furthermore, golf also gave me opportunities to meet the coach from different universities, and all parts of the world, like the United Kingdom and the United States. My biggest goal right now is to succeed in golf and get into a good university with a great golf team in the United States. But right now I need to focus on maintaining my grades because in order to get a scholarship in the United States I need to keep my grade at 4.0 or higher so I can
Throughout all the ups and downs I’ve experienced from golf, the one lesson that I will always remember is how much perseverance, dedication, and hard work it took me to become skilled in golf. Golf has also taught me to have trust in myself and to be patient because sometimes results take time. As I plan a career in computer science, I know that the lessons I have learned from golf will help me reach my goals. Just like golf, I will need to learn as much as I can, and practice my skills and be patient to see the
Science is a subject I have been fascinated with since an early age. I was always curious about the human body and fell in love with the world of science after being overly exposed to it in high school. When I entered freshman year, I joined the STEM Academy in the Biomedical track and took honors biology. I was instantly obsessed with the concept of science and all the knowledge it brought to me. The following years I took an abundance of science classes to continue the flame of my burning passion.
My experience and proficiency with programming languages, linear algebra, algorithms and database concepts is supported by the following facts: Undergraduate and Graduate School Coursework: 1. In the 3rd semester of my undergraduate program, I had to take a C, C++ programming course and a programming lab. These courses introduced me to both the theoretical and practical applications of the programming languages. 2. I was a math minor at Vanderbilt University and took multiple mathematics courses such as linear optimization, non-linear optimization and error-correcting codes to meet the degree requirements.
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.
There are certain classes I enjoy. When I entered the 11th grade, I took AP Physics 1 and believe or not, science became my favorite class. I am also currently taking AP Physics 2 for my senior year because I feel that this class really influenced me to get a better idea for my career in the future. Before high school, I had some sort of idea of what I wanted to be when I get older. I thought of being some type engineer and one that I would enjoy to do.
She graduated from high school when she was just 14 years of age. When Katherine turned 18 she attended West Virginia State College. She brought her love of math to college with her she took every math course the college had to offer. Many of her teachers horned her so they began to take her under their wings. She was a very bright and smart student.
During my senior year, I took a leadership role. Some of my duties in this role consisted of updating Rotary members of the status of Interact, conducting meetings, and thinking of ideas for volunteer work. I have also attended events such as RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards Conference) and American Legion Boys’ State to further my leadership abilities. During my high school career I have taken my education seriously. I acquired a total of 28 college credits while in high school, with most of them being more challenging classes such as physics and calculus.
After summer break, I returned to Westlake High School for my junior year, feeling as if something was missing. The decision to spearhead the creation of a chapter of the Science National Honor Society (SNHS) at my school arose because of my desire to establish a niche where high school students could express their shared passion for the sciences. The SNHS would provide enlightening scientific activities and opportunities for students, and the Science club would serve as a path to introduce members into the society. I initially proposed the creation of the society in a meeting with the Principal and Board of Education. Quite a few obstacles had to be overcome to start a new organization in the school.
