I have been playing basketball since I was in 5th grade. When I went to middle school, I was selected by the district basketball team. I intended to attend every practice because I really did enjoy playing basketball. When I entered 8th grade, there was a tournament amongst all the 8 districts in ShenZhen, the city in which I lived. I considered the tournament as a precious opportunity for me to prove my efforts.
At Edelman Digital, I volunteered as a mentor with the Junior Achievement of New York (JANY) and the Manhattan Business Academy. As mentors, we assisted students as they took part in the Manhattan Business Academy’s annual Business Plan competition. It was an extremely satisfying experience as I am aware this program helps to support our community by making a difference in the lives of many underprivileged students. In addition to being a JANY mentor, I also serve as a mentor for the 4A 's Project Act Mentorship program providing individualized mentorship to a student who attends the High School for Innovation in Advertising and Media. As a mentor, I share information and insights on the digital media landscape and help to develop the competencies needed to pursue a career in the advertising and media

I’ve learned many things about softball, but one that has stuck out to me and that also applies to life is that it can be fun. However, sometimes things happen and people have got to just keep pushing through it. My third year of softball my team was very proficient, strong, and confident. When it came time to go to our first tournament, we were unquestionably excited. We knew we were going to do excellent because our team was undefeated, and with our confidence, we could do anything we wanted.
Indoor and outdoor track may be similar to some but to me they are as different as soccer and basketball. I have been on the indoor and outdoor track teams at sutton since seventh grade. Being around a varsity sport for so long has allowed me to see the greats pass through the halls of this school and has allowed me to become one as well. During my junior and senior year I became captain of both the indoor and outdoor track teams leading them to many DVC
I have a passion for working with children in my future career. I have been a camp counselor the past two summers and it has provided me an opportunity to further my leadership abilities. Therefore, other leadership positions I have had was being a freshman connection mentor, leader for the children’s ministry at college church, junior high mentor for Youth for Christ, leader for the WRL council, and many others. I believe this semester I have balanced my school work, friends, family, and other things as well and I have continue to be very successful. I believe I am a hard working student and I do not like to give up on things easily.
Similarly, I would like to serve as a resource to university administration. Having recently been through the same stages in education, current students like me are ideally placed to provide support and guidance to young people at this critical time in their education. I would love to share my stories and experiences with them and listen to and understand them. I believe that I possess many of the qualities that you are looking for in a student ambassador and I will prove to be an asset for the
When I first started to play organized basketball, I was in the first grade. My family had always been involved in basketball. They all played, shared their talents and skills, and were successful on the court. As I grew up, I spent countless hours in the gym, playing and watching basketball. When I was seven, I received a six-foot basketball hoop.
NBA Cares is the league’s program of which promotes awareness to important social issues.

This group represents me, because I’ve played basketball since middle school. I played this game for many years of my life, which is why it became such an interest to me.
I was inspired by this story, and I promised myself that my practices will be of high quality and quantity. Several months later, I decided to audition for the Legion baseball team. My father and I wished to be certain I made the team, so we practiced harder and more often than before the school baseball tryouts. When the time came, I performed. The extra practice was effective; I was accepted to the team.
As a member of FPC’s future problem solvers and community problem solvers club I have embraced and enhanced my problem solving and critical thinking skills to allow myself to lead my peers. My pivotal leadership role as a Varsity captain for FPC’s Girls Lacrosse speaks volumes as to how my coaches and teammates view me. As a mentor to other players on my team I aid them on and off the field; offering a friendship they can confide in, and tips/tricks they can use to improve their skills. I work with my peers in various clubs to help better them in any way I can. I greatly understand the importance of bettering our school.
As his former counselor and academic adviser, he impressed me with his determination to pursue the world in so many ways. Education has always been a priority for him and with that he has chosen teaching as his profession.

Working closely with the counseling staff, he assisted in a variety of duties such as working with students and their families focusing on educational pathways
I showed accomplishing my goals when I realized what career I wanted to pursue in the future. Vincent Van Gogh demonstrated reaching his goals when he fought many challenges and continued to do the thing he loved, painting, and when he showed his perspective of humanity to the whole world. Michael Jordan showed success when he accomplished his goals that many thought were close to impossible, when he made his varsity basketball team and when he became one of the most decorated NBA players ever. My sister showed success when she was in college, but mostly when she pushed herself towards achieving two majors and three minors in college and making her way towards her doctorate. In fact, it is not hard for people to reach success.
