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.
For the past three years I have been very involved with my church. I have been going to Saint Matthew 's Lutheran church since I was born.

I felt and still feel that getting confirmed takes dedication, time, and in my church it takes intellect and the ability to absorb information about your religions and other religions every week.
I want to become a member of National Honor Society because it will help me enhance my leadership skills, along with other important character qualities such as academic achievement, serving others, and developing my character traits.

If selected, I will help give back to my community by committing my time to volunteering and fundraising for non-profit organization.

I have as well been donating money to multiple foundations throughout the years such as the Wounded Warrior Project and St. Jude Children 's Research Hospital. Although I may not be the wealthiest person, I’ve always acknowledged that there are people out there in worst situations, truly opening my eyes. I believe that if I were to take part in NJHS my love of service would be a great asset. In addition to leadership and service, I feel as I am qualified to be part of citizenship.
That work ethic has been reflected through academic letters, band letters, placement in debate meets, leadership positions, and scholarships earned in high school. My work ethic was also reflected, as I became a recipient of the nationally recognized John Philip Sousa Band Award. The heart instilled by my parents also led to experiencing a taste of employment within my dream career field.

Personal fulfillment, a flexible schedule, making proper connections, and just enjoying life have always been something I’ve strived for, but have never been above money in my personal hierarchy.
