On my travel basketball team my friend was having trouble understanding the drills and the coach was not being very nice about it. At our water break I told my friend that the names he was using for the plays are different from the ones she was use to. So I told her the name equivalents and she started to get it. The coach even commented "what was in that water, not bad". After practice I went to the coach and explained that our old coach used these play names and he thanked me for letting him know. Next practice he apologized to the team and my friend and said he should have asked if anyone was confused or did not understand.
During re-election for school president many running did not have the best interest for the student body in mind. They were making unrealistic promises, aligning people against people, making posters and giving out candy to buy votes with out real plans for what needed to be done and some just wanted the title. During the speeches each person got up and told people what they wanted to hear. When I got up to speak I let people know why I was not giving out candy to buy votes, making tons of promise posters and creating issues between groups. What I did tell them was what hard work I had done for our school in the past 2 years and what has already been planned going forward. I let them know that if they voted for me again it would be voting for the actions that they really wanted from the leader of the student body and that my presidential poster would be a picture of them on it because I care about you and our school. I won!
I balance my school work, family, friends and sports equally. I evaluate each time decision with resulting benefit for myself and people around me. It is not easy all the time but I give it my all everyday to be as successful as possible! I use my planner and maintain my focus. I eat healthy, rest properly and work to improve my personal goals on and off the field.
I have many memorable experiences from the hundreds of hours of community service that I have been involved in high school. The one I found the most joy in was when our National Honors Society did our service project at the VFW facility in town. We made food for the veterans, took care of outdoor landscaping work and beautified the grounds. We worked inside on organizing and cleaning the facility while meeting the fine men and women who so proudly served our country. It gave us all a great feeling of giving back to all who have given so much to protect our great country and preserve the freedom we all enjoy everyday!
Another great event was with my church group. We planned and organized a prom for senior citizens at our local nursing home facility. We decorated, set up music, food and beverages. We then helped all the seniors who we signed up to get ready. We introduced each senior and took turns dancing and having fun with them for hours. These types of volunteering events allow me to connect with a cross section of people who have a diverse life experience which helps me grow by gaining understanding from multiple perspectives of what really matters. What I have learned by actively participating in all the community service events is that I have grown as a person intellectually and have gained a wisdom from my mentors life experiences that is priceless in helping others help themselves to feel positive and proud.
Peer tutoring fellow students for the National Honor Society was another great event for me. I was able to help my fellow student by tutoring the subject matter but I realized that I was also now mentoring them in other areas of school life. This double bonus felt very rewarding that I could give so much back that easily. The realization that my hard work in class had helped fellow classmen increased my confidence that I could help many others.
