I am extremely honored to be eligible for this opportunity to apply for the National Honor Society. Becoming a member of the National Honor Society has been a goal I set for myself since I was a student in middle school. I have been greatly looking forward to this moment for a very long time. Overall, I have worked incredibly hard these last two years to display a positive character and obtain qualities such as leadership, responsibility, and scholarship. I strongly believe I will be a productive and reliable member of the National Honor Society at Harvard H. Ellis Technical High School.
The transition from childhood to adulthood occurs when an individual is able to recognize the impact he or she can leave upon their community, gaining life skills doing so. An accomplishment that marked my transition from childhood to adulthood, would be best demonstrated by the process and completion of a leadership responsibility when I performed my Eagle Scout Project. I joined the scouting program when I was very young, and have been very active since ever. Becoming an Eagle Scout has many challenges that a young Boy Scout must undertake, including the completion of a community-based project, which is an important step in obtaining this notable rank. The Eagle Scout Project is designed for the scout to learn different leadership responsibilities.
It takes a certain kind of person to be a good leader, and the Beta Club has greatly helped me in doing so. By active community service, leadership roles, and hard work, I have learned the incredible importance of academic achievement, character, leadership, and service. Through these things, I have been substantially prepared by the Beta Club to serve others as I depart high school and
Therefore, people who have passion and perseverance and those who have taught and learned, achieve their long-term goal. I still agree with Duckworth idea about having and testing out grit to become better in life. On a personal experience, I was always struggling through high school. My goal was to be able to walk across the stage with my friends and graduate. So no matter what, I overcame every obstacle that was holding me back from my goal and I was able to graduate with my
To me it 's a much bigger picture. I believe it 's the years of bonding and trust I have created with all the teamates around me. To excel throughout the years, my team mates and I had to perform on the same level for us to suceed as a whole. I will always have those friends because we actually became a family as well
“And the winners of the Tuttle Middle School American Legion Awards for 2011 are Alyssa Yund and Justin Raters” announced the assistant principal at the time, Rex Ryker, in a congratulatory tone. I have never been more grateful and proud of an accomplishment in my life until this one. Scoring high on exams, making the high honor roll, and earning awards for my academics over the years have been satisfactory accomplishments on my behalf, but earning this award seemed the most important accomplishment to me. This accomplishment marked a significant transition between my childhood and adulthood within my culture. Most importantly, this award taught me life lessons that have shaped me into the individual that I am today and that will endure with me eternally.
I did my best right up to the last moment of my time in that blessed school. I had understood what I was capable of and what I had the power to accomplish. I developed intellectually, physically and mentally. I became outstanding sportsmen and received extraordinary results for my Ordinary level examinations. I knew that I had the ability to reach my highest objective.
My parents had instilled in me the importance of hard work and dedication so by the end of the school year I was capable of holding a clear conversation in English. I realized then that I could achieve anything I set my mind to; a lesson that has carried though my entire life and served me well in years to
I have already been volunteering to get to know the programs they offer. I will be dealing with domestic violence and trauma families and children. I am excited to this new chapter and new beginning to starting putting what I learned into action and learn even more. My site supervisor is a well established LMFT with supervision certifications for over 10 years. He allows his trainees and interns to practice the style they want to explore.
Now being at Rowan University I enjoy my profession and practice course as well as my life span development course. All three professors did not make the course dreading with meaningless homework. They would make sure you studied exactly what you needed to study, they gave you assignments that would help you with your career goals, the professors made the course a course that you can say you enjoyed and took something from it. So attending grad school is something that I find will be useful so I can be exactly where I need to be and gain all the experience and then some before working the youth. As you can see I always had a passion for working with children ever since I was young which is why my future goals are to build my own recreation center for kids eight to eighteen which will be called “Kinship Unity”.
Ever since I was a little kid, I was serious, mature and warm hearted, and becoming a successful person at school and my community is what I always wanted. I define success as one 's ability to overcome some challenges. My challengeswere adopting both American and Ethiopian cultures and living in them as one. I hat as success because it’s interesting to find peopleliving (an active life in two different cultures.
I am deeply honored to be given the opportunity to join the National Honor Society and be among some of the most exceptional students in our school. Being given this opportunity shows my family and myself that I’ve truly worked as hard as I can to succeed. Growing up around adults with a good work ethic has taught me to see the reality in life. Working hard will help create a better future. I not only work hard in my classes but I also participate in sports which gives me the experience of being a leader.
