In my senior year at UC Davis, I worked part-time at the Academy of 21st Century Learning. My responsibilities included tutoring K-12 children, designing and teaching academic camps, and building the Kairos program. During the school year, I worked at the Academy for about 15 hours each week, along with the off hours I put into designing camps and working on the Kairos curriculum. Through my time here, I worked to develop close relationships with my students, a competence which will help me to become a better physician. Additionally, because the Academy functioned as a team in designing and implementing a solid goal plan for each student, I am prepared to apply the skills I have learned to working in a medical
After taking care of my educational responsibilities and extra-curricular activities, I always find the time to involve myself in service-oriented activities. For example, during the last year, I completed 68 hours of community service. And, this year I hope to devote more hours to activities that will benefit my fellow students and my community. I have great plans in mind like organizing service trips, doing fund raisers, reserve one Saturday each month to community service to bring a smile to someone’s face. Additionally, this year the Interact members have selected me as a treasure for the school year 2015-2016; giving me the chance to use my leadership skills to provide a valuable service to my classmates.
One past leadership position that I held in high school was the presidential seat of National Honor Society. Through this leadership position, I’ve gained communication skills between teachers and fifty students in the organization. I’ve promoted and facilitated community service activities. I’ve also learned to engage actively with colleagues and branch out of my comfort zone, especially when it is something I am passionate about. As the president, I delegate responsibilities to board members that I worked closely with to achieve the organization’s goals.
Academically I was inducted into Alpha Kappa Mu Honor Society, Upsilon Phi Delta Honor Society, Psi Chi International Honor Society, consecutively on the Dean’s List since freshman year with consecutive 4.0 GPA semesters since Sophomore year and am on track to graduate with Honors. Throughout my college career, I have been engaged civically through community service at various organizations such as Mentoring Majesties, Fannie Battle Day Home for Children, and Preston Taylor Ministries performing more than 200 hours of service. In addition to my college and community involvement, I have made advances in my future career to be a healthcare administrator by being selected to participate in the Community Partners Internship through Hospital Corporation of America. Recently, I have been invited back to the internship to participate in a new project that targets behavioral health and access to
First, I would like to thank you for considering me for the position as a Family Attorney at your firm, I have spent several years of my life trying to prepare myself for this position. I believe that I would be the best fit for this job because of my educational background, work experience, and the passion I have for the job. During my time at Faulkner University I was at the top of my class with a 4.0 GPA. I was in the National Honor Society where I stood as President. During my time as president of the honor society I was able to receive an additional scholarship for outstanding leadership.
“It taught me values”, “It taught me maturity”, “I’ve met and become friends with people in this program that I never would’ve associated with before”, “You gave us stuff we can use in the real world, like interviews, speaking skills, politics”, “Taught me self-respect and how to respect others”, “PT”, “It taught me about values and how to get along in life”, “It forces me to think about my future.” These quotes are from the Cadets of Somerset’s JROTC Program in Pennsylvania. The program needed “$65,000 re-occurring commitment by the April 12 (school board meeting) to begin the program again next year.” Rita Halverson, author of dailyamerican.com. This article is from April 08, 2011, meaning this website has been up for a rough four years and nine months. If this is what JROTC students thought about this program in 2011, approximately four years ago, imagine what those programs will look like in the future, say three or four more years. If this positive thinking continues, the experience will be much different, fresh, improved, and we will have a more positive impact, as a result.
Upward Bound, a pre-college program, has prepared me academically and socially. Every summer, I spend six weeks at the University of Eau Claire taking classes and going on field trips to visit a variety of colleges. Staying on campus and taking classes has allowed me to interact with a diverse group of people that I did not know before. Meeting new people has made me realize that I can be friends with other people in college. The classes that were offered helped prepare me for my upcoming school years.
Having so many people interested in Armenians and our culture is what motivates me to spend an extra hour every day making future plans. An elected a board of 16 motivated students now meets both during and outside of school. With this board, I delegate duties to board members, which has made the club operate more smoothly. I have also reached out to local Armenian community leaders seeking help and advice. Finally, I have helped my high school become closer to the Armenian community by linking the Armenian Club with AYF, an organization that unites Armenian
Being captain required me to help my team after hours as well as provide insight on to them on how best to prepare for the competition. During 4-H camp over the summer, I was one of three counselors assigned to a cabin of 25 prepubescent girls, for whom I
I have worked hard my entire life to get good grades, and have found ways to balance my academic and personal life. I have a job, am in 5 clubs, have over 200 logged volunteer hours, and have taken 8 AP classes. I am a member of the Stony Point High School Unarmed Drill Team. I have held a leadership position in my high school for all 4 years. In 9th-12th grades, I was Treasurer for the Robotics Team, where I also documented the process of designing, building, and testing the robot.
I served two years as a residential advisor responsible for overseeing both on-campus and off-campus apartments during the summer and academic year. My training and staff meetings focused on teaching, organization, and program-development. Working with staff and peers has enhanced my teamwork and critical-thinking abilities. Being responsible for my residents has also improved my communication, counseling, and crisis management skills. The listed hours include training during the year and four and a half weeks of full-time summer training.
Being involved in many activities in high school, from athletics to fine arts, has taught me how to work well with others as well as work hard under pressure. One of the many organizations I have been involved in while in high school is student council. I am currently serving my third year as student council president for my class and in doing so it has taught me leadership and organization. Student council calls for many responsibilities and opportunities including, service projects for the community, planning a variety of events for the school, and planning major events such as homecoming and prom. Planning and organizing events has given me the opportunity to communicate and meet new people.
I am a member of the band, and a member of jazz band, the sound technician in theatre, and I am an active member of Student Council and the Every Monday Matters Committee. All of these involve time and effort, and I do my best to help the most I can for each club. Although I may not be the best in everything I do, I have grit. I am willing to do whatever I can to be as successful as I can. In the next three and a half years, my goal is to leave Llano High School the best I can.
During my high school years I have worked at Little Caesars. I fulfilled my community service hours by attending the NJROTC ceca drill meet competition. Both of these positions required skills to work with customers and co-workers. In my opinion I have learned how to effectively communicate with other higher up personal and deal with difficult situations
Maria is my boss at the counseling center and has been for three years now. I work under her as a sexual assault peer educator. I have weekly meetings with her and work with her when planning certain events that the SAPES may be doing throughout the semester such as the sex positive event that was held last spring. I have gotten to know Maria fairly well, making this interview feel like just another one of our weekly meetings. In conclusion, I was truly blessed to have Ms. Wydra be so generous with her time to allow me to interview her for this paper and or class.
