Being nominated/qualified to be a member of the National Honor Society is a great honor and pleasure. This shows that I have achieved my goal of demonstrating my determination and willingness to give back to the community. I believe I represent a distinguished character with academic initiative, leadership qualities, and I am a superior representative of Southeast Polk High School. I feel my eagerness to do well in life helps prove my exemplary character. I trust that I am able to become a valuable member of National Honor Society due to me being a hard-working, responsible student. I possess all of the required qualities such as leadership, character, and volunteer experiences.
My hardworking trait allows me to bring leadership to the community. I have been involved in many leadership activities that have built up my character and helped guide me to be the hardworking person I am today. One of my leadership experiences was being a room leader at The Altoona Kids Cafe over the summer. Altoona Kids Cafe is a program that allows children to have a place to eat and a safe environment to spend time in. This gave me the opportunity to not only give to kids in need, but to also teach these children how hard work allows one to succeed. Without being a hard worker, I would not be able to maintain a 3.6 GPA and I would not be able to be a classroom leader. I am responsible and turn my work in on time. I study and give my all to my school work. I try my hardest to maintain superior grades while living a busy life. I aspire to make a difference in my future and in order to do so I have to give school my all. Also, my hard-working quality is shown in my Show Choir leadership.
In show choir, although I am not a team captain I conduct a positive attitude and I am there to help my teammates when they are in need of help. Whether my teammates need help with a dance move or need help finding motivation. I am there to be a leader and a role model for my teammates. I am able to do so due to my hard work that has allowed me to put my all into practices to be a team leader. When it comes to being a work leader I am diligent. I help train people and make sure they feel at home, since I truly believe one should feel accepted in the workplace. I stand up for someone when I see “bullying” at work, I encourage the other employees to respect their coworkers. I come with a positive attitude and motivation to make the children at Altoona KidsWorld feel safe. I try my hardest to be a role model to the children and to show them kindness. By teaching these children to be kind, I am giving back to the community and future generations.
I believe that with my skills and abilities I will be able to contribute to the society most effectively and reach my full potential in helping others. Being a member of the National Honor Society would be a privilege. Thank you for taking the time to read over my essay. It would be a great honor to be chosen for such an elite organization.
