Not necessarily for college applications, but moreover on the experience that I will gain by being a member. In fact, the opportunities such as giving back to the school and the community will surely hold more value than it would in my college applications. In addition, if I do get accepted, I will surely not be the first to write that I was an NHS member, so would it really make much of a difference? I believe I will be a great contribution for the National Honor Society.
Some things changed, like I joined National Honors Society, cross country, and the fall musical but was unable to continue with basketball (yet still managed) and math team because I lost interest.

I had to stop doing some activities in order to spend more time in the training room.
“What you seek is seeking you” (Rumi). I feel as if I didn’t choose to become an optometrist so much as the inspiration was seeking me. Two years ago I panicked every time someone asked me what I was doing after graduation. I hated the time commitment that came with medical school. I knew my nieces and nephews would be graduated from high school by the time I got done, and that my grandmother almost surely wouldn 't be with us.

My senior year has not started out too great either I have still having the bad side pain despite being over the mono. After once again many doctors visits we have found that I suffer from irritable bowel syndrome which explains the amount of illness I’ve had all throughout high school and now we know even though there is no cure there is medicine I can take to make the pain manageable. Now I am really hopeful that the hard work was not for nothing and my poor attendance and grades from that school year will not hold me back from accomplishing my goals of getting accepted to your college and becoming a history teacher so I can help students like myself push through their hard

Madisen Hansen Period A3 There are twenty six letters in the alphabet, and never had I thought that five letters could be arranged in such a painful way.

I aspire to emulate the moral convictions of Truett Cathy, the founder of Chick-fil-A. Truett Cathy never compromised his morals for his own success. His restaurant franchise has succeeded operating only six-sevenths of the time of his competitors. This is due to his commitment to keeping the Sabbath. I see this level of commitment in myself.

I am the oldest of three siblings, the oldest of my cousins from my maternal side, and the first from both maternal and paternal side to receive an education outside the country Nigeria, better yet the United States. It is a privilege that a few attain and for many Nigerians a dream come true. As grateful as I am, there are a lot of expectations accompanied.
