I have played in the Elite Club National league in Arizona for 4 years which implies a lot of traveling most weekends. ECNL is a step above State league, allowing us to play the hardest teams in the Nation. Each week we practice a minimum of 3 times a week for 2 to 3 hours a day and play 2 games each weekend. Many of our games however require us to go out of State. Taking away hours of our time for driving and eating out.
I am a member of my high school’s student council, Girl Scouts, and also the chaplain of my school’s drama club.
I excited that teaching in the DPP is about to become reality. Daniel and I have enjoyed meeting everyone over the past 3 months. I know Ms. Yates preferred Monday or Tuesday evening. I am going to contact Morgan Kirkland today about April’s Class zero or setting up another meeting time. I will send any updates I get from Ms. Kirkland.
During 8th grade at Howard D. McMillan Middle, I believed one person could make a difference if they just set their mind to do so. Our school had many restrictions and few student activities. Early that year I became interested in Student Government (S.G.) and National Junior Honor Society (NJHS), so I decided to run for President of both clubs hoping to make a change.
Throughout my high school career, I have been involved in various clubs and organizations to help me become a leader in my community. At Auburn High School I took on the role of being a Publicist officer for National Technical Honors Society the first two consecutive years that it became a part of our school. I gained a lot of leadership experience through this club. Implementing a new organization is never easy and takes a lot of hard work and dedication from the leaders of the club. By being a part of a very helpful, dedicated and motivated team, we helped affiliate all the eligible members into the club and in turn helped introduce this new club to the school. As publicist my role in helping the club grow was crucial; I helped in publicizing the clubs various projects and involvement.

I am involved in two clubs at Hopkins High School. I am proud to say that I'm part of the We Serve HHS and HHS Responds clubs. We Serve HHS focuses on serving the community through volunteer. We organized the food drive that recently occurred in October to donate to ICA. Currently, we are looking into collaborating with Mr. Allan Law to provide food for homeless people in the Minneapolis area. HHS Responds is a representation of the diversity in our school. It encourages and promotes diversity in Hopkins. That club brought the gender neutral bathrooms into our school and we are currently working on celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month. We have discussions regarding politics, race, religion, gender, and many other current topics that affect students

Throughout my past four years in high school, I have had the opportunity to maintain leadership positions in various organizations, including Spanish Honor Society and Drama Club. These groups have allowed me to be involved my school and community. I have organized various events including a stuffed animal drive in which we brought almost 1,000 donations of stuffed animals to the Pembroke Pines Police Department
The final mast of school and community involvement was catalyzed when I joined Key Club as a freshman. Finding a passion for service and leadership, it rapidly became my primary focus in deepening my high school experience. Key Club inspired me to search for further opportunities for leadership and involvement, leading me to join Student Council, Relay for Life, and so forth. Through my various executive positions, I have not only improved my own character and qualities, but also inspired others around me to do the
One of the first real leadership positions I ever had at my school was in the Hillcrest Hospital Helpers Club. I became a member my first year at Hillcrest as a sophomore and became immediately interested in their purpose as a school club. While it may sound cliché, the members of the club, and especially the leaders, wanted to make a difference through their service. We would at least monthly participate in creating art crafts and activities for the children at Shriner’s Hospital and then deliver it to them. While it may not seem much to the average person, the happiness on the children’s faces was worth all of our efforts and more.
I have been on the UTD School of Natural Science and Mathematics Dean's List for every semester I have attended UTD. This is awarded to full-time students with a GPA in the top 10%. I am a Phi Kappa Phi Honor Society member. Invitation is given to those with a
LD is a thirteen year-old Haitian -American seventh grader who is enrolled in the 7th grade General Education program at Middle School 500. She lives in a large household that is comprised of her paternal grandmother, her father, younger brother, aunt, the aunt’s boyfriend, along with her aunt’s two children ages 2 and 4. LD was referred for counseling by her Guidance Counselor due to conflicts in the home with her grandmother and aunt. The source of LD’s problem stems from her grandmother’s strong ties to Haitian culture and traditions. Although LD was initially referred for family problems, the dynamics of LD’s situation changed when her grandmother died suddenly before the holidays. As a result, the focus of LD’s sessions was changed
The first organization I joined was Sigma Psi Omega. I was Social co-chair during 2014-2015. In this role I helped the chair take minutes and roll for the committee in which we plan events such as the Full Moon Fever Dance. I then became Historian 2015-2016. In this role I take pictures and write down what we are currently doing for next generations to see. The second organization I joined is Student Government Association. I first started out as a Senator but was quickly inducted as Secretary in Spring 2014 during my first semester in Student Government and continued to be Secretary through Spring 2015. Then I became President 2015-2016. I have loved every second of it, and feel that I have made an impact on Student Government here at USAO. We are updating the constitution this year. We went to two conferences in the fall and will host a conference here at the university. We are also working on what we can for the people who view the legislation and make the decisions to take us more seriously. I have also attended Haven the whole time I have been at USAO as well, and just started craft crafting club towards the end of 2015.
If I would only be able to continue participating in one of my activities, I would choose SADD, or the club of Students Against Destructive Decisions. SADD encourages students to make better, healthier decisions when faced with opportunities for destructive behavior, like drugs, drinking and driving, etc, by providing fun, safe, stress free environments and activities. In life and especially at college, there are so many opportunities for students to make the wrong choice. I am happy to be a part of something that gives students the support we often need when faced with tempting situations. As Co-President, I am pleased to say SADD is one of the largest clubs at Elkhorn South High School. In college, I want to continue supporting my fellow
