Since orientation, and after much consideration, I have decided that I wish to be known as a kind and generous person. To achieve this goal, I hope to take advantage of volunteering and fundraising opportunities on campus. I would also like to get involved with tutoring programs, and am interested in taking on a leadership role when an
Every day I look forward to going to my Human Service Exploration Class. I have worked my way up to Leadership Two, in which I teach and supervise the interactions of new leaders working with students with
I have learned from fellow classmates and peers on how to become a selfless leader and follower thinking of others above myself. Throughout my four years of high school, I’ve been a part of many clubs, some that I am still involved in and some with important leadership positions. My main motive in getting involved with my community and school is to improve our school and community. In AFJROTC I have done over 250 hours of community service just within ROTC and have done over 1,000 community service throughout my community and school. I believe in selfless actions to help benefit my neighbor and peer to overall make us both superior. I am currently the Steele’s National Honors Society President, a Flight (class) commander and squadron (leader of all flights) commander, Business manager for 2017-2018 Squire magazine, Class of 2018 reporter (class officer). I have key positions in many clubs and organizations that have over this year improved and exceeded expectations. As I am a Leader, I have learned to become a respected, caring, strong-willed, straight forward, and reputative leader. I learned this mostly from the direction and teaching of Steele High School making me the leader I am
From this club I’ve learned people assemble and assisting each other on a project, can be very refreshing. Our club works together, getting certain things accomplished. However; all of us learn the same thing at the same time. I’ve also learned you don’t have to be rewarded for every good thing you do in life, sometimes the most rewarding things are just doing it in the first place. And I participating in theaters and know that I am a helpful person when it comes to helping people remembering their lines. And also I worked at the church café and learned my leadership skills there as well I have also applied it everywhere I go.
I think also as i work with students I’ll be able to give insight into situations I'm dealing with to my other peer leaders allowing us overall to be a stronger and more knowledgable group. No one of us is perfect so by grouping together and sharing our strengths were sure to impact each others lives.
For my twelve service hours, I decided to dedicate my time to one organization. That organization is known as College Mentors for Kids. College Mentors for Kids is a program specifically designed for elementary and college aged students. It is a nonprofit organization that works with over 2,000 students and mentors one day a week on a college campus. This program can be found throughout nine states and on 33 different college campuses. I am fortunate enough to be attending Ball State University, which is home to the largest chapter in the country for the program. The program’s main focus is to acknowledge the importance of higher education and career growth as you get older. There are a variety of ways the members of this organization accomplish
In high school, I was faced with a plethora of service opportunities and I quickly became involved in many of them. I currently serve as a Freshmen IMPACT Mentor and a Point Tutor. As an IMPACT Mentor, I help freshmen adjust to high school. This transition can be tedious and stressful for underclassmen, but having someone to guide them can be relieving. As a Point Tutor, I utilize my strengths in Math and Chemistry to
I find myself to be a natural leader in service, community, education, and daily life. I have pushed myself in my schooling to ensure I was taking control of my own education. With my commitment to education I have been in charge of classes, service projects, and club events. This past year my teacher chose me to lead the beginning and intermediate chorus class while she is there and when she is absent. Having this responsibility makes me take my education and the education of the other students in that class. I have spent much of my own time that I could have spent on my other classes to ensure that everyone is understanding the material and prepared for performances. Being able to use my leadership skills to help others with music performance, theory, and other aspects has pushed myself further than I thought I could. Dealing with others that are my age and younger can become discouraged and aggravating at times, but I try to stay determined no matter what the circumstance I’m in. My determination has pushed myself to remain calm in situations and continue my service work no matter what the issue. My qualities that I have gained in high school, I feel have prepared myself to move to East Carolina University and hopefully into the Leadership Program. The Leadership Program is a place I feel I could thrive in the community and the
I always seek out new challenges for myself so that I can learn and grow as a person while helping others. Until my junior year in UAFS, I never led the group for any projects. It took two years for me to finally take charge, simply because I was not ready to become a leader. After two years of taking feedbacks, I finally started to take action. During these four years, I learned that I wouldn’t just be handed opportunities; I was going to have to work hard to accomplish my goals. And this is the reason why, if I see any potential to grow, I will take all the opportunities and chances I have. I had worked my way up to become a leader. Now, if I have chance I always lead
I want to play a role of a learner and as an activist. I want to learn about everyone’s culture and understand how that plays into the current world. I want to be aware of any problems my classmates face because of who they are and if there is a way I can help them. I have organized fundraisers through GSA and for the 3 other clubs
As a child, I had no idea what I wanted to do when I grew up. As I grew older and developed traits similar to my peers I noticed that learning was extremely fun to me. Since the beginning of elementary school I enjoyed learning and the challenges of tests, spelling bees, etc. In addition to my love of learning, I have always felt a calling to lead others. Upon attending PBA I gained leadership roles as the President of the Pre-Pharmacy Society as well as at my church as a worship leader for 1st grade students. In the PPS, I focused not only on having successful and knowledge packed meetings but on getting to know my peers and how to help them succeed. Although I claim that I did “this and that”, I could not have accomplished half of what the Pre-Pharmacy Society did without the
Since middle school, I’ve hadn't been the type of person that's into sports or clubs as much as the other students my age have been but I am the type of person that seeks opportunities to help out my community. I have volunteered in many locations starting from food banks, teaching at an elementary summer program, church on Saturdays, working the front desk at an organization, babysitting, the sheriff's department and some other small duties. From all of these, I have gained new skills that have been useful or will be in the future some day. For instance working with the sheriff’s department has taught me multiple skill on working the front desk and mainly improving my communication skills. In college communicating is very important since
I believe the recognition of societal or environmental needs and making conscious efforts towards finding a solution is a civic responsibility of every individual in a society. My desire to be a participant of the Emerging Leaders Program is to be a catalyst for positive change and development in my community. To connect with like minds, develop ideas and capacity building initiatives which will promote sustainability by empowering individuals and communities at the grass root level. I appreciate the impacts teachers make in the lives of students, and teaching children/youth gives me a deep sense of satisfaction. This opportunity would present the platform to gain valuable knowledge and insight for my professional development, consequently
I’ve always known that I wanted to be a force of good in the world, someone who lifts people up, someone who can help during stressful times, and be the shoulder people can lean on. I want to be there for anyone I can. While I’ve been in multiple school groups as early as elementary, such as student council, several honor societies, academic clubs, and other activities, it wasn’t until my final years of high school that I discovered my true calling that has created the most memorable and rewarding experiences of my life.
To better understand student characteristics and effects on college students I choose to participate in experiences to complete this competency. While I enjoy reading and discussing things in class, I always learn better when I can see what we’ve been talking about with my own eyes. In our Environments class, we had to travel to another university and share their culture with the rest of our classmates. I had a good time visiting other schools and I enjoy traveling to different campuses in my free time as well. Whether I sign up for an official campus visit, or spend an hour or two wandering around on my own I feel like I can pick up on important aspects of the environment. This is an important skill to have and will also be helpful when deciding which job offer to accept in the future.
