High School Accomplishments
In the community I am active in my church Youth Group. As a high school sophomore, I was our church’s representative to the Diocesan Youth Fellowship for World Youth Day Volunteers. I helped organize youth group events, the largest being “The YFD Praise fest,” a state-wide event for 300 young people. I also played high school junior varsity volleyball for two years. As a senior I will be playing varsity volleyball, but in the off-season. As a junior I coached a girls’ soccer team for the town.
This gave me a great deal of responsibility because the care of twenty-four girls was put into my custody. It felt very satisfying to pass on the knowledge of soccer to another generation. The girls played teams from other parts of Florida. Though their record was 3-8, the girls enjoyed their season. This is what I taught them was the greatest joy of soccer.
In my High School, non-academic clubs such as the Young Scientists’ Movement and the Glee Club, both of which I have belonged to for two years, gave me an opportunity to see both the technical world and the artistic world. These two clubs have given me a greater sense of what these careers may be like. In the Young Scientists’ movement, I participated in field trips to various technical research institutes all over the state and also participated in two theatrical productions in Glee Club.
