I’m involved in many activities at school including orchestra, choir, show choir, and athletics. These all prove me to be hard working and committed to making myself the best person I can possibly be. In sixth grade I was involved in Klein Academic Competition for the writing portion, and this year I will be taking the Duke University ACT test for all subjects.
In all my life, I’ve never had a commitment that required so much of me as track and field, both physically and mentally. Towards the end of my high school career, track and field for me meant having to push through a difficult physical condition known as tarsal coalition, a condition that causes inflammation in my feet. With help from my coaches, I had to learn to endure past physical limitation and strengthen my faith in my abilities. By doing so, I became more confident in myself and I was able to help lead other team members to do the same. Not only did track and field teach me to lead, but it also taught me how to be a part of a team. I learned the value of teamwork through building relay race teams. In all relay races, I was either the
I am a hardworking-dedicated student, who focuses on my studies, yet I have enjoyed every second of being involved in extracurricular activities. I am enrolled in all honors, dual credit, and AP courses. While at Preston High, I was a varsity football and basketball cheerleader. I also ran the 200m sprint and pole vaulted on the varsity track team. I adapted excellent leadership skills through Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA). I attended the National FBLA convention
This limited my circle of friends to just the people I had known for years. My athletic endeavours also partially attributed to my academic shortcomings, as I focused more on them than I did on school. I realized I had to have better balance between my activities and school. Instead of coming home, skipping my homework, and immediately going to bed, I would stay up later to make sure all of my work was done before going to sleep. This balance allowed me to take on other activities in addition to my athletics. I since have become involved in Class Council, National Honor Society, and Academic Challenge. While the first two organizations primarily consist of service work to the school and the community, Academic Challenge invokes the competition of athletics into an academic setting. This has allowed me to make new friends while also experiencing the competitive aspect I have always enjoyed. Branching out in high school, while not easily done at first, greatly benefitted me, allowing me to diversify myself in areas other than athletics and to better manage
Throughout my high school career I have participated in many activities and been awarded many great honors. As a member of my high school color guard, I have led as co-captian and captain for four years, traveling across the country to compete. Beta Club has given me the opportunity to serve my local community and create a service project to reach the globe. I was asked to lead the volunteers at my church for the early service in the children's ministry area my sophomore year and I continue to serve in this position. During my junior year I was acknowledged as a junior marshal, a Wofford Scholar, and a Presbyterian College Scholar.
A couple of days ago, I got the chance to interview one of my dad’s friends, Nate, about his experiences with interviews. Currently a Nurse Practitioner, he has had over ten different jobs in his lifetime, ranging from a managerial position at KFC to an emergency room nurse. Just like his past jobs, the types of interviews that he has been in have been wildly different. He has even conducted a few interviews himself. Soon I will be participating in important, career-defining, interviews and it is important that I understand the ropes of an interview. I asked him only a couple of questions, but I got detailed answers and invaluable insights from the mind of both a successful interviewee and
Through high school I was involved in many different groups, clubs and athletics. I was a STRIDES leader for 2 years, an active member of the high school Bible study and a leader of the out of school athlete Bible study. I was a member of FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes), and I was also a member of the Z-Club. In high school I took challenging classes every quarter and I also took 3 of the 4 available college credit courses offered, finishing with an A in them all. I was on the honor roll 3 of the 4 years I was in high school and was a very dedicated student in all of my classes. During high school, I was given the amazing experience of representing my school and student body by being voted the freshman representative for the homecoming court. I was also
Throughout my five years continuing on my sixth; I had never became so close to any sport/club offered at my school. Our team is considered a “family.” We stand by eachother through times of doubt and reminisce on our good memories. We enjoy the company of one another. Every Friday night before our Saturday morning races, the team would all sit down together and have a nice meal together. The team is a close knit group even with students joining and graduating from the
I was an active member of the Varsity Swim team this year at School. I was swam 50 free, 50 back and in two relays. I personally came 8th in 50 back at the CISAA finals and our team was awarded CISAA Coed Champions
I am in Scholastic Scrimmage, which has been one of the most rewarding clubs I have been a part of and I have been captain of Varsity Scholastic Scrimmage during 11th and 12th grades. This year (12th grade) is the first year the team is going to EPC playoffs in over four years.
I have been part of the varsity swim team for four years now, which I am now a captain of it, reached cadet chief master sergeant in Civil Air Patrol, where I soloed a plane, and other; however, these two accomplishments are the foundations of my goals.
Perfect competition is an idealised market structure theory used in economics to show the market under a high degree of competition given certain conditions. This essay aims to outline the assumptions and distinctive features that form the perfectly competitive model and how this model can be used to explain short term and long term behaviour of a perfectly competitive firm aiming to maximise profits and the implications of enhancing these profits further.
I have participated in cross country and track and field and have gone to the state championships three times. Academically I have acquired a 4.28 G.P.A and I rank seventh out of 87 in my class. While I was in sports I excelled academically and was awarded Nevada All-State Academic Team for three seasons. I am part two clubs, National Honor Society and Future Business Leaders of America. I am proud to be vice president of Future Business Leaders of America, to help coordinate the underclassmen so they can keep the club alive in the following years. One of the most memorable accomplishments in my high school career is receiving Rotary Student of the Month for math and social studies. The Rotary Club rarely gives out this award to a student two times and I was fortunate enough to receive it both
I have learned so much in this class to prepare me for a successful college experience. There were some topics that caught my attention more than others. Such as, time and stress management, University resources, and critical thinking.
