Therefore, I plan to continue my active involvement in extracurricular activities while I am a college student. As a junior in high school, I was inducted into the National Honor Society for doing exceptionally well in my academic endeavors and actively participating in volunteer events. My contributions through this organization have made a significant impact on both my personal development and my community’s support services. The numerous volunteer projects in which I have participated have prepared me to continue helping others in the future. Through projects such as building houses from the ground-up with Habitat for Humanity, I have developed teamwork skills, discovered my management potential, and increased my social network, all while working to provide services for less fortunate individuals in my community.

Franklin 's enthusiastic attitude is a great attribute she has that sets her apart from and makes her better than other athletes. Coaches are willing to continue training Franklin, and help her because of her positive approach through everything she does.

He has done this because coaches love athletes who listen to them! He realizes that he will see results from the time and commitment he has put in with Missy.

This is where the students get to perform any kind of talent they possess in front of the school and community members that choose to come. The activities and events we host are always very fun and exciting. I have been a volunteer since my freshman year of high school, which is when they allow you to be a volunteer. Before that you may participate in the activities.

At first, it was just a way to get my community service hours, but the kids later won my heart and there was no turning back. It was a place of unity, a place of hope. It brought people from all over the city of Fitchburg together. Volunteers, such as myself, would come from everywhere to help, the high school kept in touch through their mentors, and the kids would bring different friends along. That unity, that Fitchburg unity, was shown everywhere: at football games, at school events, and even at the grocery store.
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”. Furthermore, I believe attending this university will give me the opportunity to expand my skills and knowledge to advocate for those who need a person that will stand up for them and help them to be able to advocate for themselves one day or even others and to see them succeed in life. Thank you for your

Also, along with the DuPage County Historical Society I participated in many volunteer events such as walking tours, and fairs.

As a member of several honor societies in high school, I participated in many community service events and hoped to continue serving the community once I began college. I joined the RPI Zeta Eta chapter of Alpha Gamma Delta Women’s Fraternity during my freshman year. Being a part of Alpha Gamma Delta has allowed me to continue serving the community. Throughout the school year, we participate in several events including Relay for Life, Volunteering at the Boys and Girls club, and several philanthropy events set up by our chapter and other Greek houses and organizations on campus. The money raised at our philanthropy events supports Diabetes education and awareness.
