Being a leader now will help me show my family, underclassmen, and community that I work hard and that things don’t come easy. I am always willing to help out and make a difference in my community. Having set goals makes me want to work harder, and also making me realize the road will be hard. But with the work ethics I have that I’ve learned throughout high school, and will continue to learn in college will help me accomplish these much easier.

Today David Ortiz is known as “Big Papi” because he is big in his career. For me someone who had lived and achieved the American Dream is my paternal aunt, Danilda Adams, who from when she was little she was a hard worker.

My American Dream is to become more successful everyday, to obtain a bachelor’s degree in business
The most character building experience in my life was when I joined the National Junior Honor Society in middle school. Engaging in NJHS has molded me into honing the attributes of leadership, citizenship, scholarship, service, and character. For instance, involving myself in community service like Relay For Life, not only aided me with the chance to assist my community but has helped me to develop citizenship and service. Furthermore, being in the organization has made me realize that I can assume the role of leadership and guide my fellow classmates by being a role model. Consequently, I became further aware of the importance of education and have been gradually becoming, increasingly studious.
DSHA has impacted me in numerous aspects, the most significant change being the way I appreciate learning.

Through taking specific courses, especially the science courses, I have discovered genuine interests that I initially never expected to have.

To me an organization such as the National Honor Society (NHS) is a way for me to strive to do my very best. Not only would it help me try to keep up with my grades, it will also make me more involved with my community through service and leadership.

If I am selected to this group, I would contribute to the continued growth and success of the National Honor Society by setting high standards in my grades and achievements.
