At my high school, I tend to stay busy with numerous extracurricular activities. I am the President of my school’s Environmental Club. Last year for this club, I was in charge of planting 200 trees in our community. I do Lincoln Debate for my school’s debate team as well as having played Soccer and participating in Student Government. I am also an anchor on my school’s announcements, the Treasurer for both Athletic Council and my grade level officers. As for honors societies I am the Vice President of SNHS, and a member of both NHS and Mu Alpha Theta. I also compete in the IAC National Science Bee Championships and Ignite STEM competitions. I also enjoy giving back to people in need in my community. I started my own fundraiser and raised over $1000 from my church to help my local food bank. Also, when I appeared on the local TV-show Class-H-Room I donated a portion of the winnings to help people in Ukraine. I enjoy being involved and staying busy because it allows me to meet many new people and forge new friendships. I never would have met any of my best friends if I wasn’t as involved.
Finally, I look forward to TRIP this year because not only is it a great opportunity and experience to learn more, but I get to meet new people from different schools and backgrounds and connect with them and forge friendships.
