It is an honor to be chosen to apply for the Columbus Chapter of National Honor Society. National Honor Society has always been something I have strived to be apart of. After reading the the criteria for this honor I feel that I have demonstrated the qualities associated with this organization. I feel that I am deserving of this honor because I truly strive to be the best student I can be in school. I work hard in school and always an prepared when it comes to a quiz or a test.
Opportunities like this scholarship only come in a lifetime, so being able to partake in it, is such an honor. I truly contemplate that I’m qualified for this scholarship because of my past academic accomplishments and flexible upcoming goals. The day I learned about college, I generated a goal: attend a 4-year university and receive my Bachelor’s Degree of Science. I knew that my goals were not just going to be given to myself, so I started working firmly for them. I started to obtain near perfect grades, which certainly made me stand out in my class and as an individual.
This scholarship is a wonderful opportunity for students of GVSU, and I am honored to be considered for this scholarship. I believe that I am a great applicant for this scholarship, and that I deserve this scholarship. One reason I deserve this scholarship is because of my strong academic courses. Throughout my high school career, I pushed myself academically by taking a total of 10 AP classes and 7 honors classes. These classes were all challenging, yet I pushed through with determination to complete the classes to the best of my ability.
I love learning. I always made sure, with the reassurance of my parents, that I had the best grades possible and I went to school everyday because I was taught education was extremely important. I have dedicated a lot of time, work and effort to maintain my 3.8 GPA. Unfortunately, my Senior year was not how I pictured
College is a place where you are transformed into the person you want to become in the future. In the same way it gives me determination to peruse my career and achieve my goals that I have prepared for myself. In addition ,which is why it led me to begin college; to make my family proud, pursue my career as a nurse and to experience the college lifestyle. To start off with, my main goal in life to always make my family proud of me. Without my family I would not be the person I am today and have the motivation to attend college.
In the world we live in today. Going to college is no longer a choice, or privilege, but rather a need for a brighter future . So the big question that happens to be going around is, “Is College really worth it?”According to Andrew J. Rotherham’s article “Actually, college is very much worth it.”, “5 Ways Ed Pays”produced by (The College board), and “Why College Isn't (And Shouldn’t have to be) For Everyone” written by Robert Reich. The answer to that question is yes. Though there are many individuals who believe that college is not for everyone, attending college and getting a higher education can open the gates to many tremendous life changing opportunities such as becoming healthier, begin able to secure jobs, and earning more financially.
Academically, I was pushed into performing the best I could such as trying my best in English class even though it was a struggle in the beginning. Socially, I was pushed into situations that I had to adapt to, such as changing schools every couple years. I was also pushed physically into trying everything I could possibly be comfortable with to see what I enjoy doing. These challenges helped form who I am and pushed me to
I believe I should be selected for the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Scholarship because I am not the typical high school senior. When it comes to my education, I go about and beyond expectations. My desire to do my best in school shows consistently year after year. I put in equal amount of effort when it comes to my after school activities and community involvement. I was told at a young age that education was the key to success and from that point on I made it my main priority not to be the average student among those that settle for less but to be a outstanding student that rises to every occasion to take advantage of my education.
I have visited UCLA and it the campus looks amazing. I am not saying that the other colleges are good for me, because Harvard is everyone’s dream school and you could get any job if you graduate from Harvard but I have always had my eyes on UCLA. In conclusion, I would like to attend UCLA not only because it is great school and for the campus but because it is so close to home and it has Quidditch. What more could I ask for in a university. I mean I might put myself into debt trying to achieve my education, but it would be worth it.
Elva was influenced by such antics as she understood the importance of income to her family. She acknowledges that Apá sacrificed much needed income so that his children could go to school. He reiterated many of times that all his children would graduate from High school. This embedded the significance of education into Elva from an early age which she acted upon and strived for the best in school. She was also extra determined to get higher grades than the Gringos but Amá made this
This field trip was a way of celebrating that we all achieved a good academic year at school. I really like that my school rewarded us for doing well in our classes, but they did it at the end of the year for a grand finally of the school year. I believe at the end of that year was when I started being a good student. I found out how important it was to get good grades. As soon as everybody was on the bus we started our trip to Six
It would be amazing to meet new students and encourage them to attend not on The University of Alabama, but also make the Culverhouse College of Commerce their academic home. It is so important to invest in the lives of others, and you never know what impact you can have on a life. By simply being an ambassador, I have the ability to greatly impact someone’s future career. I struggled with choosing a major, and I understand how difficult of a process it can be. I am sure that if I toured Culverhouse initially it would have been my first choice.
Also FCCLA has brought me lifelong friendships, I’ve met other people from other states, and I still do keep in touch with them, it’s also an encouragement or something to look forward to if I do qualify for Nationals. Without my advisor, I honestly don’t know what I’d do without her. Mrs. Maeda, is like a mom to me, she cares for me as if I was one of her own kids. She pushes me to be greatest student I can be. She’s the only teacher that didn’t give up on me when things got a little rough.
To Whom This May Concern: I, Karen Myers, am writing this letter to urge you to seriously consider Akiyah Douglas for the M.E.S.T Scholarship. I came to know Akiyah when she was student in my English class during her seventh grade year. She immediately rose to the top of the class, distinguishing herself as a bright, inquisitive, energetic scholar. Akiyah is popular amongst her peers, teachers and administrators alike. She is a very independent person, but from time to time finds herself being someone everyone wants to collaborate with.
They had her get her first job a little before she turned 16. The family wasn’t surprised that Dilcia was accepted into fantastic universities because of this; she had always gotten good grades throughout her schooling and had shown her values and morals. Though they weren’t surprised, it didn’t take away from the emotion of Dilcia receiving her first acceptance letter. Dilcia rejoiced “my grandma, Rosina, cried when I got my first letter of acceptance and I just felt so happy that I made my family so proud and that there sacrifices were worth it.” She respected her family so much for everything they had done to create
