The personal experiences I have had along the way have aided in shaping my character. For example, this year I had the privilege of being elected to the board of my school’s National French Honor Society. Our induction ceremony for new members was taking place and much preparation had to be done in a short amount of time. As a new board member, I took charge and made sure every detail of the ceremony was perfect. From decorations, food, audio and video, I did it all. My teacher and head of the honor society was very impressed by my leadership and “take charge” approach that she appointed me the new President of the French Honor Society for the 2015-2016 school years. That event allowed me to see my true potential as someone who works well with others as a leader, and my ability to work under pressure to achieve results. I have always strived to be the best I can be and excel at whatever task I set out to do. By having the opportunity to attend The United States Naval Academy, it would allow me to continue to challenge myself academically as well as strengthen my leadership and discipline. I would also be honored to serve my country as an officer, giving back to this great country that has been so good to me and my family for generations. All of my life I have been told that I am a very determined individual with a strong presence and desire to lead. It only seems right that I further develop myself
The Nullification Crisis, which transpired under Andrew Jackson’s administration created a controversy not only during its time, but also in the years to follow and ultimately was one of the many causes of the Civil War years later. The Nullification crisis soon developed in the early 1830’s when the state of South Carolina began to have issues with the protective tariff (which was designed to protect the industry in the northern United States by taxing imports). At this point in history, many of the leaders of South Carolina were under the idea that a state did not have to follow a federal law and could “nullify” the law. This was a result that many colonists from South Carolina felt that the protective tax was benefiting the
Through what I have done in the community and at school, I have shown several skills of being a great leader. I work with little kids in baseball to help improve their skills. I also lead others throughout the community by instructing them what to do at Arlis DeBoer’s. We, as a BASIC youth group, volunteered to paint and landscape her house. I have done work for her before and helped to tell them what needed to be done.
Firstly I want to be remembered as a servant of the Lord. I wish to show others the love of Christ through my actions and willingness to serve. I have dedicated my time to help serve others. Joining the Chik-Fil-A Leader Academy here at school has helped me be able to reach out and serve those in need. This program has been an asset for me to understand what it means to serve.
Freshman of Lower Richland High school, I want to be the change that I want to see. I want my life to speak for itself! I am a strong young lady that will go very hard in school, and is always known for being gracious and kind. I want to lead by example! Putting God first in all that I do, making good grades, having the ability to say no to sex until marriage, and always saying no to drugs and alcohol. I want to show the freshman class that we can still be on top, and not give into the things of this world. As I mentioned early, no one starts as a leader however, the importance of being a leader is to start having a mindset as a leader early in life. Knowing that you can lead, and you will lead by
Combining certain passions with the power granted to me, I chose to make the most out of my leadership position. I organized both the Recycling Committee and the St. Baldrick's fundraiser. In the Recycling Committee, I created a script, filmed, and edited a video emphasizing the importance of recycling. That video was then circulated throughout the school and was a success-- it prompted my peers to correctly recycle materials. Similarly, I ran the social media and advertising campaigns for the St. Baldrick's Fundraiser, raising awareness for childhood cancer. I not only want to achieve leadership positions, such as my National Honors Society position, but I want to exercise them to positively influence the community around
The legacy of doing good and encouraging others is a legacy I want to leaving HVMS. I want my teachers and friends to consider me as a person who was always positive and always having everyone backs.
It is extremely important for everyone to give back to their communities and I hope I can inspire others to continue their own dreams of being successful. When I become a family physician, I will be able to help many different people and advise them on how to live a healthy life. As one of Jordan’s valedictorians this year, I know how important school is and have always worked diligently to get to where I am today. I am determined and will always continue to push myself to achieve my goals. I never give up and am able to learn from my failures in order to grow and succeed. I have always loved helping others and know that I will continue striving to provide the best care possible wherever I work. I will continue working tirelessly when I am at CSU Long Beach because I know college will be more challenging than high school, but I will not let that stop me from being successful. I am going to try my best to graduate with honors because I know I have the potential in me to accomplish that goal. Family is extremely important to me and I do hope to someday get married and have a family of my own, but I know that can wait until after I accomplish my career
A true leader stands high on on the pillars of success: dedication, servitude, respectability, and honesty. The mark of a fulfilled life is not one who has collected many awards, not one who has an insurmountable amount of money and fame, it is one who has touched the most souls in his journey of life. A leader destined for greatness will touch many people along their journey to the top. In my short years on this Earth I have made it my mission from the start to leave a lasting impact on everyone I come in contact with and as a student of Howard University I will continue my mission without fault. From birth my parents noticed I had an insatiable thirst for knowledge, a heart of gold and an unconquerable ability to lead. In the 5th grade I was awarded the
I hope to be able to secure a stable, well-paying job with the help of my college degree and to be able to give back through tax dollars, donations and scholarship funds. I hope to also help others find jobs and to make Lamar County attractive to businesses looking to plant their roots in a prosperous community. It is also important that I will be able to be part of groups that will allow others to find those jobs. Additionally, I wish to give back financially to those who are less fortunate, especially the children who live in the local Housing Authority. I believe that by helping the children, I will be investing in the future of the community.
As I prepare to enter the next stage of my life, I look forward to furthering my passion for politics and government, with the ultimate goal of preparing to run for public office one day. To continue to build off of what I cannot think of a better way to continue the journey I started back in 2008 at the
I wish to give to others all the knowledge I have attained from my past experiences to help mold the future destinies of my peers and descendants. Being remembered as an advocate who had strong, forceful opinions on multifarious topics is extremely important to me and I hope that my legacy encourages others to follow their dreams even if a person of influence is pressuring them not to. My goal in life is to live day by day and to always rely on my wisdom and heart to make the right choices in order to better my future as well as others.
