I feel the National Junior Honor Society (NJHS) would be a great opportunity to express myself and my abilities. I have many qualities that I feel would be a great asset to this organization such as responsibility, organization, trustworthiness, commitment, and positivity. I have done numerous things to help around my community. I have helped the less fortunate, teachers, and I even had a work experience at the Bay Pines VA. I feel my service around my community would be a good thing to contribute to the society.
First, I have helped those who are less fortunate in my community(s) several times. I have volunteered at a local soup kitchen in Woburn Massachusetts. There I did tasks, such as serving and preparing food, those tasks required me to be positive, organized, and committed. I have also helped at Feeding Tampa Bay, which took a great amount of organization. In addition, I volunteered at the Metropolitan Ministry’s, located in Tampa Bay, Florida. There I helped adults shop for food and entertained the younger ones.
Another way I have helped my community is by helping in the school systems. I was a second-grade teacher assistant in my old elementary school (Reeves Elementary School). During that experience, I did tasks such as grading, sorting papers, reading, and math help, during this period I had to show myself as responsible, trustworthiness, and organized. I also volunteered at a church preschool for a while, located in Lexington Massachusetts. Here I helped insure children from ages ranging from 0-5 safety, by watching and assisting them. These series of tasks shows independence, dependability, and trustworthiness.
Finally, I had a work experience at the Bay Pines VA hospital where I worked in the linen department. Here I did many tasks such as folding wash clothes, sorting things such as sheets, towels, and blankets. I rolled up items such as fitted sheets, and blankets. I was also given the chance to help with the scrub machine where I filled up the slots with scrubs. I worked there four hours a day with a half hour for lunch. This work experience showed I was committed because I showed up every day, responsible because I could do all the task I was instructed to do and on time, and finally it showed organization because I had to organize and sort thing on various shelves and bins.
In conclusion, I feel my experience volunteering in my community would be a great asset to this organization. I have had many opportunities to help such as, helping the less fortunate, helping with education related things, and my work experience. The tasks I completed during my service time, so many good qualities which would be a good addition to this society. This community would be a great way for me to express myself, and my strengths.
