Discus Award Winner
12th Grade, MN
As a student, academics are my main concern. I have been on the A honor roll since 7th grade.In middle school I recieved the Presidents award for academic achievement. I have always been a self motivated student and it has allowed me to excel in high school. I take a variety of honors and AP courses so I can be prepared for college. I have maintained a GPA of 3.97 throughout my 3 years of high school and recently got admitted to National Honor Society. In order to prepare for my dream career as a Nurse I will be graduating high school with 12 science credits. My ACT score was a 28 and I feel as though it is an accurate representation of my academic ability. My senior year of high school will remain academically challeging as I prepare for college!
I am passionate about my participation in sports. I have remained a 3 sport athlete throughout the course of high school. In 2010, my teammates elected me captain of the soccer team. I have been a part
of the varsity track and field team since my freshman year of high school. To encourage youth to become involved in track and field I encourged and taught children the basics through the youth program. In order to become a better runner I joined the cross country team in addition to the nordic ski team in the winter season. This has helped me immensly to become a better sprinter on the track team as well as be more of an asset to my team. Sports have allowed me to step outside of my box to meet people and they have taught me a lot about sportmanship and hard work.
Community service has always been a large part of my life. I regularly volunteer in my community and I am required to volunteer a minimum of 25 hours per semester for National Honor Society. I volunteer through my church frequently at places such as Feed my Starving Children and the church nursery for children. My mission trips have allowed me to spend multiple hours improving communities in Cass Lake, Minnesota and well as Brooklyn, New York. Experiences outside of my community have taught me about the value of other cultures and different ways of life. I have also spent time with the elderly at various assisted living and nursing home facilities. Making a difference is a rewarding experience for me and I hope to continue that as much as possible during the course of my life.
