My service projects have developed my skills in public speaking, conflict resolution, marketing, recruiting corporate sponsors, financing, and networking. I learned I love innovating and am passionate about volunteering. My service experiences helped me realize my goal of obtaining an undergraduate degree in engineering and an MBA, becoming a social entrepreneur, and focusing on technology that makes a positive global impact.

Since joining NHS, I noticed that I have become better at addressing society’s needs. An example of this is my involvement in Science Study Buddies, a program for elementary school students that fosters interest in various scientific fields. As president of the program, I am learning to become more responsible and caring toward those around me, as well as how to be more inclusive. Additionally, the students’ feedback has taught me how to view science from a different perspective, making me a more open-minded leader. My involvement in Science Study Buddies has been an opportunity to exercise the traits NHS promotes.

Each pillar of the National Honor Society, scholarship, service, leadership, and character, is equally essential to me as they shaped my development and future goals. … Each of these pillars played a quintessential role in my development and made me realize that if I wanted to become successful one day, I must first develop and practice these qualities in myself.
