I’ve taken rigorous courses in areas that challenge me and stimulate my mind. My favorite classes have been the one’s that challenge me the most, like AP World History, AP US History, and AP European History. One of my most meaningful academic achievements was getting the highest possible score on the AP US History exam. My love for history gave birth to my interest in politics and law. For the past two years I’ve been a delegate at the North Carolina Youth Legislative Assembly. This opportunity allowed me to debate and discuss politics with other young people. But what really merged my passion with history and politics together was representing North Carolina at the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour to Washington D.C. in June 2016. During this week long experience I was able to tour our nation’s capital and met with U.S. Representatives and Senators. I’ve always worked hard to succeed in my endeavors because I want my hard work to make the Hispanic community proud and inspire other young
Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) is a state-based national non-profit organization dedicated to preventing dropouts among young people who are most at-risk. Mullins High School is a 100% free lunch qualified school where students look for encouragement.

Mullins High school is blessed to have Jobs for America’s Graduates (JAG) program. The program coordinator Ms. T is proud of her student members and their highly supportive parents.
When I was asked to be the speaker, I was flattered when they said “We want someone who was an Albemarle Middle School Honor Society Member and is now SUCCESSFUL today.” The comment was made by an adult near by, “But they want someone successful, and you are JUST A TEACHER.”
Contributing to my school and community is a true passion. I am involved in programs like the Red Cross, Angel Tree created by The Salvation Army, and Olive Garden’s Pasta For Pennies. My school hosted a Red Cross blood drive, and I was responsible for promoting the event to individuals within our school. We had a total of two hundred students donate blood. We helped save a total of six hundred lives! I also assisted the Program Angel Tree by promoting the program among the student organizations within my school. Our involvement has helped hundreds of less fortunate children and seniors receive necessities and gifts! As a team, the student council also collects spare change from students in our school. Our collaboration with Olive Garden has helped fund the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's School & Youth campaign. I am truly glad that my contributions have made an impact within my community and society! My strong involvement in extracurricular activities has helped me become knowledgeable, principled, and a risk-taker. I carry a strong sense of respect and righteousness, and I approach unfamiliar opportunities with a vision and great courage. I seek to set an example for members within my school, community, state, and
As poverty, terrorism, hunger, and economic crises escalate, I believe it is essential for me as a student to possess a deep human desire to contribute to my school, community, and ultimately, the world. Because of my profound attributes, I am able to promote leadership, develop character, and create enthusiasm for academic excellence. I was chosen as a candidate to display academic prestige but I perceive it as an opportunity to offer my exemplary efforts of scholarship, leadership, service and

Considering the fact that I am not looking for a job in the St. Louis area I did not think the Career Fair would be very beneficial to me. However, I decided to take a chance and get all I could out of the fair and I honest believe I got more out of it than I expected. My only regret was that Scheffel Boyle was not there, because they are my top choice for where I want to start my career once I graduate with my MSA and I really wanted to talk to them.
The inconsiderateness of the clinic for my father’s injury only further fueled me to research and contact many lawyers to find the best one to represent my father. I continued to lead my father through this new and unfamiliar situation. I further developed my researching and inquiry skills to uncover resources and opportunities for the benefit of peers as myself. Bright prospect is a program aimed to empower students to gain admission, and graduate from universities. Currently, I’m the crew leader of my Bright Prospects team. Many of my crew members were unaware of the benefits and opportunities offered by their community. One of my crew member wants to pursue a career as a firefighter, but was confused about how prepare. I led him to ask around Pomona City Hall and introduced my crew member to various internships opportunities within and around our hometown. Because I pursued a positive change in myself, my family, and my peers, I took the initiative to find organizations in which I could take on leadership roles. I continue develop my leadership skills to persuade others to be active in communities and to seek opportunities to achieve their personal
I currently work with an at-risk, yet extremely lovely and lively class of high school seniors who are preparing for life after graduation through a system called AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination). Our goal is to prepare them for post-secondary education despite their circumstances. I was a participant of this program for all four years of my high school
Last week I attended the Kennesaw State University All-Majors Career Fair. This event took place in the Dr. Betty L. Siegel Student Recreation and Activities Center. I had several tables that I wanted to visit. However, there three recruiters that I received signatures from were Peace Corps, Kohl’s and Bright Horizon Family Solutions. I believe that each of these job opportunities could use a Psychology major. I say this because psychology can be applied to nearly every job.
On the afternoon of October 24th 2014, the EOP freshman were required to attend an EOP career fair. Not only was this a unique one-on-one experience, it was also a great opportunity to get an inside look of what our futures can consist of. During this time, like other students, I was to speak to a couple of people in my career path. Even though, there were a less than five people I spoke to, I managed to ask important and informational questions. To start of the fair, I walked around several times, trying to locate those who I was most interested in speaking with, and on the third time around I spoke to Norelia Cerda- Caldera. The reason I spoke with her was because she received a bachelors in Phycology and Spanish, I found this interesting due to the fact that
My notable academic career begins in inner-city Frederick High school, where I would grow my passion for entrepreneurship and the sciences. During my time there, I was active participant in anyway to assist my school community, be it from starting new clubs, to leading initiatives in honors societies to help our undocumented immigrant population, to captaining sports teams, all while taking the hardest course load available. I was fortunate enough to receive admission to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I would find my passion was not engineering, but rather entrepreneurship and law. Despite the top tier educational prospects, the school became unaffordable to me after losing my NROTC Scholarship due to an unfortunately revealed
During the Fall 2015 semester, I earned leadership opportunities in my hobby of hip hop dance. I became the Administrative Director for my dance team, Hip Hop Connxion Indiana, which is a hip hop dance team comprised of 23 dancers from IU who perform and participate in various events in the local community to inspire others in a positive manner. Furthermore, I teach a hip hop class for a group of five high school girls at the United Arts Academy of Dance & Gymnastics and a class of about eight kids ages 8-14 at Enlighten Wellness Yoga, both in Bloomington, IN. Besides my dedication to being an encouraging, positive role model through hip hop dance, I also have been active in applying for job shadow opportunities as well as internships; a recent
Today I had the opportunity to attend the Business and Technology Career Fair. Since I am a junior and previously a business student, I have some experience with this fair. My visit this time was very different from my two prior years since I am now a Kinesiology major and I am somewhat of an outsider to the majority of companies offering internships. Upon reading the requirements of this assignment I was unsure about who I was going to speak with but little did I know I would only have to do half of the work.
I get to share my passions with children and inspire them to pursue careers in STEM. I currently tutor math students at a Title I school to prepare for the Milestone exam. In addition, I volunteer and serve meals with my family at a local men’s recovery center, the Extension. Through the activities I lead and serve in, I’ve cultivated an appreciation for those in my community and learned to apply my ethic to help others. My determination to learn and serve will guide to me towards a future involvement and success in college and as I obtain my career
