I aspire to attend the Clark Atlanta University because it is a symbol for past and future generations of educational and operational excellence. Clark Atlanta University is the hub of African American leadership and educational expansion, and with the constant policing of the community and poaching of black culture in today’s society, it is significant that I achieve an education that represents myself and the world with which I am familiar and intend to change for the better.
My academic drive and diligence as a student are manifested in my scholastic achievements. I was presented with the Most Outstanding Student Achievement Award when I graduated 8th grade from Mountain Home School. I currently have a grade point average of 4.0, which has been sustained throughout my years of high school thus far. Last year, as a sophomore, I received three Academic Achievement Awards for Religion, Chemistry, and Spanish 1. I also took three senior classes, and I was on the Principal’s List for every quarter. This year, I am taking two dual-credit classes and excelling in both. I believe that the main reasons I am a straight-A student are because I am self-disciplined, I have a strong work ethic, and I strive for academic excellence. Mediocrity is never an option for me.
After receiving the award, I continue to visit the residents at St. Barnabas and share my gifts of music, by playing the piano, flute, and leading group sing-a-longs. I throw myself into my activities and do so with a happy, humble heart. An important quality I possess includes my integrity and respect. I always uphold strong moral integrity and respect those around me. I understand that you must treat others as you would want to be treated, and to be respected, you must do the right thing even when no one is watching. I am a strong leader as I am a person who takes action and gets involved, in order to help others and the team. When I see an opportunity to be supportive and to lend a helping hand, I jump in. I am not a person who sits in the background and waits for someone else to do something. I am a go-getter, who thrives on helping those around me. I am very organized with all of my activities, both academically and socially. I input over 200%. I understand that without a strong work ethic and passion, only the minimal will be accomplished. As Class Secretary for the past four years and as upcoming National Honor Society Peer-Tutoring Coordinator, I remain organized in sending emails, marking attendance, collaborating new ideas and fundraising opportunities, and encouraging others. I am an effective communicator as I understand that each voice matters. I do not speak just to hear my own voice, and I value the thoughts of others. I speak up when I have
I am truly dedicated to my school work and put a great deal of effort into all my classes and organizations. I keep my grades to A's and B's while I strive for A honor roll. My goal is to do the accomplish the most outstanding work I can achieve. With all my hard work I earned the Outstanding Academic Achievement Award from the President's Education Awards Program.
Last year, I received a commendable G.P.A of 4.4. This proves that I not only take difficult courses like Honors and Ap classes, but also contribute great amount of hard work and dedication to overcome those challenges and succeed. Other than my transcript, I received man recognition for my academic achievements. I attended many Honor Rolls and received Academic Letter Award every year. In addition, I also participated in competitions, like Junior Math Leagues, Science Fair, and NHD(National History Day), to test my knowledge in academics. I competed in the Science Fair and won first place in school division. In NHD, I have received first place in school, district, and state competition. By participating in these competition, it motivates me to strive higher. Lastly, I am a member of NAHS(National Art Honor Society), NSHS(National Spanish Honor Society), NMHS(National Math Honor Society), and Tri M Music Honor Society. This demonstrates my high interest and excellence in all four subjects: Art, Spanish, Math, and
As of grades and academic achievements, I’ve maintained a 3.96 grade point average all year long and expect to keep and/or raise my GPA by the time I graduate. I’ve proven to my teachers, family, and myself that I can do anything that I set my mind to, like maintaining a high GPA or being on high honor roll for three years. I’ve also been awarded the Presidential Education Award three times for my hard work. I have participated in honors classes ever since elementary
My moms raised me with a strong set of morals, including “hard work pays off.” Sometimes this can be discouraging when you work hard, but it doesn’t pay off as you’d like it to. I’ve always gotten the grades I strive for without much struggle. However, once high school started, everything changed. I’d work for weeks on a scholarship essay, and I wouldn’t even place. I’d work for months to get something published and then read other people’s names in the congratulations announcement. I’d constantly wonder: Who’s at the top of the class? Who’s going to win the end of year awards? When you consistently get the grades that I do, people just expect those grades. No one congratulates you on your hard work anymore, and you don’t always get recognized. Despite the lack of recognition, I still take pride in my grades, and continue to work hard. Getting great grades is something I know I can do, even when it’s difficult to do. The difficulty makes it even more satisfying when I see the hard work pay off, and I get the grade I wanted. I’ve encountered
At Norwalk Community High School, I am in the Top 12% of my class, earned a cumulative GPA of 3.6, received an Academic Bar and Honor Roll for past 3 years, and inducted into the National Honor Society. I have challenged myself in the classroom by taking several AP and community college classes which at this time I have earned 18 college credits. Outside of the classroom, I am involved in several activities: Football, Basketball, Tennis and Concert/Marching Band. I have lettered in Football and Basketball for the past 3 years, Tennis
Coming from a small city where everyone knows almost everyone, I would like to excel in my ways so everyone in the city will recognize it. La Mirada California, a place where I was born and raised my whole life. I am currently a senior in high school. I attend
Growing up, I have been an individual who has pushed myself beyond the minimum requirements in order to succeed. In high school I excelled in both academics and athletics. I graduated in the top 10% of my class and lettered in hockey and tennis my sophomore, junior, and senior year. I worked hard and put in extra time in order to set myself apart from others. Succeeding in both school and athletics made me a responsible, reliable, and an organized individual. These experiences made me a versatile individual and have given me a work ethic that has benefited me with my academics in college and with my work and volunteer experiences.
I have a passionate desire to excel in my academic life. My early elementary school years were arduous because I have always been a very stubborn person; and at the time, I had simply decided I did not want to go to school. However, about halfway through my 1st grade year, I decided that I could no longer go without giving my best academically and I turned my stubborn rebellion against school into a
A special attribute that sets me apart is my tendency to work hard. I constantly try to do my best in everything that I do. Throughout high school, I’ve always set a high standard for myself by taking rigorous classes, joining sports and clubs, and maintaining a high GPA. Even if certain classes didn’t have any relation to nursing, club meetings were the day before a large exam, or tennis practice was especially grueling, I still worked hard and put in as much effort as I could. With this type of attitude, I was able to maintain Distinguished Honor Roll and a cumulative 4.08 GPA throughout my high school career. I chose to maintain this attitude during senior year instead of taking it easy, as I was able to gain knowledge and experience that
At the age of ten, I read a book, “Gifted Hands” by Dr. Ben Carson, which inspired and begin to motivate my interest in pursuing medicine as a career because I could identify with his discovery of the joy of reading and his fascination with science. When I was 14,
Throughout my educational career at St. Paul High School I have been involved in many roles of academic excellence and leadership that I believe have well-prepared me for my future. As a freshman and sophomore, I received two ACE Awards for maintaining a minimum 4.0 GPA and as a junior
Throughout my educational experience, I have endured countless hardships that made progress difficult at times. Although it was a struggle through my strong dedication to education, I have also earned a list of achievements for my hard work. These experiences from, failing two of my English classes, to excelling tremendously in mathematics, have molded me into the type of student I am today. I am a student with a growth mindset and, an optimistic outlook on education and, the bright future ahead. I now understand the impact that a positive mindset can have on your future. I am definitely proud of the student I have become. I feel like my journey is unique, but is also very relatable.
