Time management and persistence have allowed me to overcome this problem. Regardless of how busy my social or extracurricular life becomes, I always make time for school. I have had a great high school career, earning all “A’s” over the past four years. I play varsity for all three of the sports I am currently in and are going to be promoted next month at my job. The time and effort that I have put into school compares to nothing else in my life.
As a child, ballet was not just an extracurricular activity, it was my identity. I started homeschooling after the fourth grade to devote my young life to this passion, trading a traditional grade-school education for a daily schedule replete with private lessons, technique classes, and extended rehearsals. My days started early and ended late but I adored every moment. As I progressed in the discipline, I would move around the country—from Aspen to Boston to D.C.—enrolling in prestigious full-time academies to train with world-renowned masters of the art. From age six to sixteen, ballet was all I wanted, it was all I knew.

Her drive to be successful was evident in everything she did and most clearly described when she said “I was certainly as determined as anyone to work single-mindedly until I reached my goal. Since meeting the Chairman on the street that day back in the spring, I had longed for nothing so much as the chance to become a geisha and find a place for myself in the world.” (152). This determination as well as having an already famous older sister, Mameha, is what allowed Sayuri to become one of the most famous geisha in all of Gion. She worked so diligently in order to learn the arts required in the life of a geisha because, in truth, she was already years behind every other apprentice geisha in the city.
Out of the three, I was always the good one. I always obeyed my parents ' rules and I was never rebellious. My sister is the youngest and she always got what she wanted. My parents were very lenient on my other siblings. Growing up my sister was extremely defiant and manipulative.
I believe I should be selected for the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Scholarship because I am not the typical high school senior. When it comes to my education, I go about and beyond expectations. My desire to do my best in school shows consistently year after year. I put in equal amount of effort when it comes to my after school activities and community involvement. I was told at a young age that education was the key to success and from that point on I made it my main priority not to be the average student among those that settle for less but to be a outstanding student that rises to every occasion to take advantage of my education.
The try-outs were in the spring so I wanted school to hurry fastly. I wasn’t the only one trying out. Kat Wille also did. If it wasn’t for Kat and I to convince Aubrey McEnroe and Grace Menke to try out, they wouldn’t be dancing. We were all so excited to try out and we all four made the team.
This is a cliche with a lot of meaning and motivation. These inspiring words are crucial to my own success. I was an all-star cheerleader for 11 years before my parents eventually ran out of the time and money to pay for my two sisters and I. I finished cheering my freshman year, and also started dancing. In past years, I took an interest in the high school dance team.
Despite moving to dozens of new schools, Blue is always the one to beat, and her dad makes sure the dean of any new school knows that. “Naturally, students will be threatened by her, especially those who anticipate they’ll be first or second in the class.” (Pessl 63) Because Blue has such a good record, her dad automatically assumes she will be at the top of her class wherever she goes, always striving to earn the valedictorian spot at graduation.

It is the morning before all of the Frisco Independent School District tennis teams face off to see who will be the best in singles and doubles. The weather is nice and it will quickly rise to the mid-90s. I cannot wait to get to school to see my team mates and play my final match for Wakeland High School Tennis team. I have been preparing for this match for seven years, without realizing the full affects.
The information I received was negative and positive, it gave me time to prepare myself. So even though I could not join the team, I stilled attended every practice after school to watch the team.
