By the way of introduction, I am Aleem Punja's cousin and he suggested I reach out to you to explore possible opportunities at the Children's Aid Society of Toronto.
Outside of school, I am also active in my community. I am involved in many activities. For my church; Spring Baptist Klein Campus; I have been involved as a volunteer at Vacation Bible School for 2 years. I have volunteered for crafts both years because I like to be around children of
I am a member of my high school’s student council, Girl Scouts, and also the chaplain of my school’s drama club.
I have been in a few school activities. One of the main activities that I have been involved in is Color guard. Since my sophomore year, I have been on the guard and participating in all of the competitions with the band. It is a great way to get involved, make new friends, and create new experiences. I am also in my school’s National Honor Society which is an organization that consists of the top academic scholars. We do volunteer work and do activities that display integrity. We have done blood drives as well as packaged food for Kids Against Hunger. That is another organization that people can do to help package food for children across seas that don’t have any source of nourishment. I am an active thespian which is a group of sorts that is dedicated to the fine arts. I have been one since my freshmen year and have been either stage manager or assistant stage manager for two plays and three musicals. My junior year as well as this year I was involved in National
When I'm not in school I have Since my freshman year I have been doing marching band. As a sophomore I took my position as a upperclassman to help my freshman to the best of my ability. I help the freshman in my section to read drill, marching techniques, and how to play the music. While doing that I also do activities with my Girl Scout troop. I have been in Girl Scouts since the 4th grade and that has been a wonderful learning experience. From learning the ways of sales, to taking educational trips around the state i have grown in skill and character. Also for the last 3 years I have been the 2nd in highest cookie sales so that has been been very beneficial. Then during the summer I volunteer at the Durham Art's Council's Summer Camp as
From my freshman year of high school to my senior year at school I have been involved in cheerleading, track and field, the Leo Club, Ebony Society, Trio program, the Ascend Network, Emerald Legacy Step, Flagler Youth Leadership Program, and the Hosa Program. Outside of school, I volunteered to be the junior coach of Flagler Titans Varsity Cheer team, as well as concession stands for softball games and culinary events, and now volunteering at the hospital as part of the teen auxiliary
The only extracurricular activity I am a part of as of now, is Key club. I am an active member and commit approximately 20 hours of community service a semester. In Middle School I was a part of NJHS, Student Congress, and WEB (middle school equivalent to Link Crew). Within the next year, I plan on joining NHS as well as Link Crew.
So far this year, I have joined five clubs/ organizations and I find it to be extremely rewarding. I have not been able to be a part of many after school activities in past years because I was focused on keeping my grades up in Governor’s School, but now I have much more time to dedicate to other areas.
Over the past year, I have served my school and community in many different ways. Whether it be through volunteering or participating in organizations that work to make changes in the lives of others. I try to stay involved in my environment. Currently, I am a student at Rockford Lutheran High School. With the multitude of clubs, my school offers, I am able to interact with other club members to promote student participation. Every year we participate in drives and fundraisers. In Key Club, each year we put together solider boxes. We collect a variety of small items and send hand packaged boxes to our fighting soldiers, as a gift for christmas. Other drives that I partake in are the canned food drives for the local food pantries, and the clothing drives to give winter clothing to those less fortunate. This helps to provide this vulnerable population with warmth during the cold winter months.
I spend a large amount of time helping out, sorting and copying music, and doing other things that are needed. I have dedicated almost all of my time to band this year, whether that be marching band, concert ensembles, Grand View Wind Ensemble, jazz band, or the honor bands I did this year. I changed my outlook on our program and knew it was the program I wanted to be the most involved in throughout high school.
I am in Quiz Bowl which has allowed me to learn new information and connect with other kids from different schools. Pep Club is another great opportunity. We decorate for the homecoming dance and plan activities and dress-up days. We collect pennies, nickels, and quarters and donated the money raised to the local food pantry to help with their expenses. This year I am currently serving as a student council member. We help set up Winter Carnival games, pick out dress-up days for homecoming, and help seat people at graduation. Last spring, I was inducted into our school’s NHS chapter. Being in NHS allows me the opportunity to assist our local Lions Club with community service projects. These community service projects allow me to be involved and give back to the community. I have been recently voted to be a student representative of the school board. I am excited to learn how the board makes decisions for our staff and students. I also get to participate in discussion and share my opinion on current issues we are dealing with. A new activity that I just started in September is Battle of the
Among the organizations and clubs at Joliet Junior College, the Natural Sciences Club and JJC's Honors Program are the ones that I am involved in. For the Natural Sciences Club, I participate by attending meetings and going on scientific field trips with the club. My participation with JJC's Honors Program is mostly through attending the program's forums. Outside of school, I help out at my local Assemblies of God church in Joliet. Currently, I am volunteering as an assistant choreographer to a dance crew from Joliet First Assembly's youth group.
I’m involved in Pet Club, National Honors Society, Medical Club, Interact Club, 4H, I swim and last year, I was on the golf team. One thing I love the most in this world, is 4H. I was president of my club for two years, vice president before that and secretary and historian; so I’ve held office five out of the six years since I been in my club.
Currently I am a part of quite a few things before school, after school, or in other free time that I may have. Before school I am part of Show Choir, Jazz Band, Volleyball, Softball, Basketball, and Track. I also take place in confirmation for my church. During School I am in Band and Choir as well. Outside of school I am part of the community play called The One And Only Santa Claus, a choir at niacc for 4th-8th grades, and 4H.
There have been two major opportunities that have shaped and impacted me: serving with Calvary Kids Care and watching a girl’s cabin on Thursday nights at Camp Brookwoods and Deer Run. I started volunteering with Calvary Kids Care my freshman year in high school. The first time that I ever held a baby, I was terrified. I had no idea if I was holding her correctly, or if I looked as uncomfortable on the outside as I felt on the inside. The little ball of life that I held in my hands kept trying to snuggle closer, but I held the baby away from me, afraid that I would crush it if I let it get too close. This first experience led to many, and thus my partnership with Calvary Kids Care was formed. I started to work with the kids, mainly newborns
