I have already gotten to do that a lot through volunteering with National Honor Society. That organization showed me why it is crucial to help your community and also created a love of volunteerism within me. We can always do more though. Throughout my high school years I had the chance of doing a lot of work for my community and now I will get the chance to impact a new one. Since I will be leaving Jacksonville to go to college in Fayetteville, the only thing I can do for my old city is encourage its citizens to continue to better the city.
I want to give back to my community and help others so I can earn the respect that I’ve always wanted. My long and short term goals had shaped my aspirations and who I am as a person today. My experiences are unforgettable and I will surely take all the observations and knowledge I had gained to create a happy and successful life for myself and
I want him to look at me and say “if my mom can do it, so can I!” My son has always been my number one motivator in everything in life, including college. I want to be able to give him the life that he deserves. I don’t want to struggle financially. I want to have a career that I can be proud of. All that is
Looking back at all the volunteer opportunites I take advantage of, Operation Santa will have a special place in my heart because of the joy the activity brings me. Ultimately, activities with the same orientation have inspired me to make a positive impact on my community in the future. Operation Santa has been a teaching tool towards the important ideal I learned at a young age, "Help others even though they may not be able to help you." Moreover, interacting with individuals who are not as fortunate as I am has humbled and motivated me to become the best person I can be in order to help other hapless members of my community. I believe this project is one of the most rewarding activities any volunteer can participate in.
Family is very important to me to have at this particular time. They have always been there to help me to get where I am today and where I can be in the future. My family has always encouraged me to complete my goals and dreams and if it takes working more than one job they would do it in an insistent. Other than my family friends have been great for getting support and ideas that can be very beneficial for myself and for them as well. Having my family and friend has been wonderful to have them every step
My doctor took the mentorship role in my life and has not left since. By informing me on how to take better care of my body and sharing her community resources, I learned about myself and responsibility I have to the community. My neighborhood has given me the room to experience this growth and taught me the appreciation of various ways of life. These experiences have transformed my prospects from an “at risk” youth to an empowered adult. Possibly one of the most advantageous components of an inspired, healthy life is the many that benefit.
My favorite feeling is being content, which is hard to express. So, one of my biggest struggles in leading the team was showing my emotions in a way that encouraged all of us to improve. Through this experience I learned the importance of having a good attitude even when underneath you are frustrated. The power of positivity is something I still struggle with, but I have been able to more fully apply it to my life since realizing
My lengthy résumé is filled with ample opportunities that I have taken to improve my school, community, and self. I believe that my successes in extracurricular activities manifest my dedication to self-improvement as equally as my test scores and GPA. My devotion towards things that I cherish is evident. I plan to take my passions with me throughout college and my career, and channel that fervor towards different directions as I augment my goals.
With the difference in age between myself and my two older brothers, I believe I was put in a position that allowed me to mature quicker than others my same age and this is part of the reasoning that I am self-motivated and driven to succeed. Furthermore, my parents have always been by my side and supportive of all my endeavors and have given me the support, encouragement and resources needed to reach the level of accomplishments I have achieved. These life experiences have made me a more independent individual. If it weren’t for my family’s effects on me, I don’t believe I would be the person I am today. Moving on to what I have done personally to further my education, I have done many projects that were either school related or independent.
