11th Grade, SC
As a rising senior of Ridge View High school, I am proud to say i will be on the Lady Blazers Varsity Girls Basketball team. As a post player who has never played basketball till my high school years, i have not only worked hard to excel in the position i was given, but learn more about what else i can do to help my teammates and team as a whole. I played on the JV team both my freshman and sophomore year, gaining abilities and assistance while improving and finally my junior year, i was accepted on Varsity. I now work hard every other day to keep my place on the team as well as encourage my fellow teammates and new comers to try the new stuff and never be afraid to fail, for you will only get better. Three words my coaches often describe me as is hardworking, dedicated, and caring.
I was determined to change my school involvement when i began high school. I joined the Tri-M Music Honor Society because i played the violin, HOSA (Health Occupational Students of America) and Blazer Ambassadors all in my freshman year and enjoyed being apart of an effective group of peers. I made more friends and even learned more about the root of the clubs that I am in to appreciate them more. As a sophomore, I ran for position in Tri-M and became that years Vice President an loved it. My Junior year, Tri-M ended and I ran for Vice President in Blazer Ambassador as well as Parliamentarian for HOSA and lead my peers as well as my abilities allow. Now as a Senior, I have been elected President for Blazer Ambassador and HOSA and hope to be just as effective as the officers before.
When i moved all the way to Alaska, because of my father being in the military, i became really bored and being great in school with friends and good teachers started to become a bore. Then i found the violin. I started right in my fourth grade class and have yet to stop. I have rose to the top of my classes with my abilities and work hard because i have fallen in love with the music i create. In my middle school , whenever we went to competitions we made nothing but superiors and was proud. As a freshman, i skipped a level of Orchestra and played 1st chair for 9th and 10th grade years and moved up to the final level Chamber in my junior year. There i played in District Orchestra for my South Carolina. Now i plan on doing so again as well as trying out for Region for my senior year.
