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.
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
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. Reaching out to families that endure a
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 journey at Norfolk State University has been a series of challenging experiences, I have seen heights that I never thought were possible, and have overcome a lot of obstacles as I reflect. This spring semester marks the beginning of my senior year here at Norfolk State University and I am looking forward to obtaining my degree in the field of Social Work. I am both frightened and excited by the unknown experiences that lay ahead, however I am eager to embark on my career as a practitioner. This is where the rubber meets the road and I apply what I have learned in the classroom to the field experience. The Core Competencies and the values are the foundation of Social Work, and it is my duty to reflect the foundation in my intern experience.
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.
The main reason I am attending college, is to obtain my degree and start working in a profession that I enjoy and exceed in. I am looking forward to finally being in a place where I am happy to be. Where I feel I can contribute and be heard. To have a voice, and to have people really hear you is a great feeling. Even better when it helps others and helps you to feel better about yourself and what you are doing.
I believe that I have become more understanding and more mature from this involvement. This club taught me more about life in less than a school year than I have learned over seventeen
I want to attend college to further my education, be a role model to others and to better the life I live today. Furthering my education is important to me, I am always eager to learn something new and implement it within my daily activities. Being the first generation in my family to attend college is an enormous accomplishment to my family and myself. I will be able to show my family that anything is possible with hard work and determination, and I will be able to be that role model to my niece that I never had growing up until I got to High School. I want to be successful in life and let my happiness portray as a way of giving thanks to the ones who guided me along the way my last four years and give back to my community one day.
I want to become a member of National Honor Society because it will help me enhance my leadership skills, along with other important character qualities such as academic achievement, serving others, and developing my character traits. Becoming a part of National Honor Society will give me opportunities to help and learn more about others. I enjoy volunteering in my free time since it is a way of me giving back to my community, getting to meet new people, and gain more experience. If selected, I will help give back to my community by committing my time to volunteering and fundraising for non-profit organization.
Every moment is a memorable part of the journey of life. I have always appreciated the value of giving to others because I believe that just being able to lend a hand to others, no matter how trivial it may be, is what makes life worth living. However, my desire to help people started when I began working with children as a teacher’s assistant. It would instill in me a lesson that I would never forget.
