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.
Throughout my high school career, I have been involved in different professional societies such as the National Society of High School Scholars, Mu Alpha Theta (Math honors society), and Business Professionals of America. My involvement in these societies has made me knowledgeable in the logistics of how to run the society, and have taught me valuable skills such as leadership and collaboration. For logistics, I can help organize events such as fundraising activities or philanthropic events as I am currently on the social committee for Business Professionals of America, which is in charge of organizing social events for my chapter. As an elected member for the social committee, my chapter has shown faith in me for my leadership skills and collaboration skills. Overall, I feel like I can contribute a lot of my skills and knowledge to UIC honors college.
Broader Impact I enjoy helping others pursue their passions and achieve their goals. Softball is a sport that has taught me many important life lessons including teamwork, leadership, and dedication. As softball is a sport that has taught me so much, I spent several weeks of my high school summers volunteering
Throughout my life, my extracurriculars have supplemented my academics. My club memberships range from Math Counts to National Junior Honor Society, where I hold the position of Vice President. Moreover, I played baseball for numerous seasons and have reached the highest level in my school’s band program. Furthermore, I have assisted my church live stream services for the past
I stay actively involved in many extracurricular activities. I am a member of FCCLA, Yearbook,
Biographical Summary Uncle Toms Cabin, written by Harriet Elizabeth Beecher Stowe in 1852, made her the most widely known American woman writer of the 19th century. She was a housewife with six children, who opposed slavery with a passion. With the advice of her sister-in-law she decided to write this novel.
When I first made Dean’s List at Montgomery College in my second semester, I promised myself that it would be the beginning of my long list of awards in college in the US, and I am making it. Additionally, when I volunteered for Junior Achievement to teach sixth graders personal finance and educational and career goals, I knew it was going to be arduous because I am very shy. After all, using real-life situations and games, I got to connect with the children, show them that the more education one receives, the most rewarding job he or she will have, and teach them about budgeting. It was a wonderful experience because not only did I help them, but I managed to overcome my fear of public speaking. Actually, I believe that what most motivates me is the sense of fulfillment a well-done task provides.
This will be my greatest achievement. I have maintained the status of honors or dean’s list every semester since enrolling in the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. I carry a 3.7 GPA and participate in various clubs. This past spring, I participated in events through Titan Volunteer. Our club made dog toys for the humane society, helped install fire alarms with the American Red Cross, and even chaperoned at the local high school dance. I also assist with campus clean-up after major social events. In addition to volunteering, I am an Odyssey Leader; this involves supporting freshmen in their transition to college life and provides a fellow student as resource for questions and information regarding campus. I am vice president of a new campus organization focusing on herbal health remedies and green alternatives for household consumption. In addition to clubs, I plan to participate in this fall’s season for the women’s rugby. Aside from balancing school work and extracurricular activities, I have worked at Georgia Pacific as a student packager and forklift driver the past two years. This job allowed me to save money for a two credit biology course to the Florida Everglades. We created individual field journals full of different species and images. It was the trip of a life-time. I hope to travel more throughout my college career; it is vital to education, especially as an environmental studies major. I believe one must see the world and experience it to truly understand and help
One of my most enjoyed extracurricular activities is National Honor Society because it allows me to engage with the community around my school. It also gives me the opportunity to work with people from other grade levels by having projects that require the input of all the members. Usually the meetings are two every month but on special events like the special olympics or winter formal it can change up to 4 every month. One of the events that the group did this year was preparing banners for the special olympics. This small project allowed me to learn more about the special ed group that is on our campus and how there needs to be more effort to integrate them in our school community. This year I had the opportunity to work at my school's thanksgiving
English Narrative Assessment As the sweat dripped down my back there was no uncertainty in my mind, my black word was worth nothing. Atticus stayed positive, he acted confident but he surely knew we didn’t stand a chance. The audience was disinterested like they knew what they were waiting for. Mayella couldn’t look at me; she knew how much damage she had caused me. All my life I have worked to support my family, and my kindness has led me to an argument where I stand powerless. This town hates people like me; my family and I are good people.
During college, I focused on engaging in extracurriculars that focused on education that enabled self-advocacy. One my long-term extracurriculars was being an educator for Peer Health Exchange, a non-profit organization that trains college students to teach local high school students about different health issues. I facilitated a workshop on pregnancy prevention and later one on accessing health resources in various New York City high schools. Our goal was not to tell students right from wrong but to give them the information they needed so that they could make their own decisions regarding their health. Having gone to a high school that did not have formal sexual education, this was of great importance to me. In addition to this, I was briefly
As for my second experiential learning activity I was the public relations on the Board of Leaders for the St. Olaf Student Support Services. In this role, I met weekly with the advisor and members of the board to plan educational and social events for the SSS community. I also promoted events and activities through social media engagement, campus fliers, and email announcements. This role helped me represent and feel closer to the SSS community, and I was able to develop valuable skills such as leadership, organization, and eye for details skills that I will take with me wherever I may
I would continue to have students reading the novel in an Appalachian literature class. This books gives such a different point of view from many other pieces we have read and allows both the perspective of a person from Appalachia, and wants to return while also one who wants to run away from the idea of home. While it is the same person the whole time it is very important to be able to see both sides. There is both an insider and outsider perspective going all in one character. When the novel started D.R. seemed to just be a hippie deep in the counterculture movement without anything else to do. As he developed as a charter though I could see D.R. was just searching for something that could only be found at home. “I’m going to stay here for
My current academics and extracurriculars that help me with my achievement are my animal science class, biology and my participation on the Vet Tech team in FFA. My Animal Science class provides information about veterinary experiences and what is expected to become eligible to work with animals and Vet Tech allows me to learn about
Personal Narrative My Life I never really thought about where my life was going. I always believed life took me where I wanted to go, I never thought that I was the one who took myself were I wanted to go. Once I entered high school I changed the
