Discus Award Winner
12th Grade, TX
Every day I strive to be better myself and accomplish higher achievements. I’ve been involved in the gifted and talented program since I was in third grade and since high school I’ve been in all pre-AP and AP classes. Since my freshman year I've been in eight pre- AP classes, three AP classes and one dual credit course. I have achieved A/B honors since my freshman year. I have lettered in journalism and have been accepted into the Quill and Scroll association. I have also taken four AP test since my freshman year. I am currently ranked number 29th in my class out of 422 students with a 96.5111 GPA. I'm also involved in math club, yearbook, and math honor society. I accept that every day may throw you curve balls but with dedication and perseverance I know I can achieve my goals.
Being in Girl Scouts has taught me the value of being a responsible leader. I’ve won my silver award by putting together a fun day where we taught children safety tips, how to build a fire, educational songs as well as arts and crafts to keep their minds creative and the importance of staying true to themselves. I am the vice president of our troop. Throughout our year, I’ve volunteered helping send supplies to troops and needy families, fundraise to help the Kohlman breast cancer walk, and teach the younger troops how to care for others and live by the Girl Scout law. I've also volunteered at the Animal Services helping to find homes for the animals as well as the Red Cross Association at Beaumont Military Hospital helping in the pharmaceutical department
Going into yearbook I never dreamed of the importance of unity that I would learn. I've been involved with the journalism program since my freshman year and became junior editor my junior year. As an editor I had to work with my peers in designing the layouts and checking to make sure the staff had all the work completed along with completing the spreads assigned to me. I reviewed and revised the staff's spreads, uploaded them to be created, took pictures, and attended as many events the school held that I possibly could. I lettered twice in the journalism program for all my achievements as well as receiving the Quill and Scroll. I worked close with others and helped tend to the needs of peers by discussing new ideas and opportunities in order to help them feel a part of their yearbook.
