I am the founder and president of the Black Student Alliance at EHS, I am the Drama club and International Thespian Society's Social Media/Public Relations Coordinator. I am involved in student council, tennis, Key Club, and lead and direct my church's children choir and praise team as well as sing on the main choir and praise team. I sing and play piano and I am asked to sing the National Anthem for community events. I am also involved in the high school acapella group, called the MasterSingers and we sing for community events and hold a concert every season. Along with that, I sing in the classical choir the Capitol Singers of Trenton.
Throughout the school year, I serve on the New Jersey State Board for the International Thespian Society. This is a theatre honor society that includes opportunities for young thespians to showcase and develop their craft. My job as a student thespian officer is to work along with other juniors and seniors who were selected through a rigorous application process to plan the New Jersey Thespian Festival. This festival is a competition that includes workshops and scholarship opportunities. As a Student Thespian Officer, I represent the student voice to present themes and fundraising opportunities as well as facilitating workshops. At every festival, we raise money for Broadway Cares and volunteer at the Broadway Flea Market. We also promote arts advocacy to ensure that schools include theatre within their curriculum or extracurriculars. Every year we go to Washington DC as the very few youths that promote arts advocacy and learn about what we can do within our community. This job is non paying and takes up my time from getting an actual one, however, it is a rewarding non-profit organization that I am honored to be apart of for 2 consecutive years.
The beginning of highschool I have learned to push bullying to the side and shine through past everyone else. I started doing better in school and didn't listen to what other people said about me. I started involving myself in extracurricular activities such as cheerleading and drama club and gained a lot of friends. I also started getting more involved in my school work and volunteering for my community. I was once a speaker for an afterschool program about bullying. I talked to kids ages 9-13 and talked to them about speaking up and shining out and not letting anyone downgrade you because only YOU can know YOU !
I wanna thank myself because I've pushed myself to be great and be the person I am now. I went through hard stages of life and pushed through by myself. I am independent and strong and can influence anyone with my story . Now I want to pursue my dreams of going to college and impress my family of being the third family member to attend college in the family . When I walk across the stage in 4 or more years i will be complete.
My Goal Is To Keep Thriving...
At the age of 12 I volunteered at my church working in the nonprofit spectrum as a camp counselor. As challenging as it is to mend over 60 students each year, The most challenging thing I ever went through is outreach. At a very young age I was able to see the world beyond rainbows and butterflies and get a breath of the not so fresh air, but I continued, I’ve helped over thousands of people, enriched many suffering students to achieve and excel above the barrier that has been placed by their peers, sat at many tables with community leaders & influencers to help shape my community for the upcoming youth. Over the past four years I felt my heart melt under the innocence of a child’s smile, the same feeling I will feel for the rest of my life as I serve to help people who have fallen short and need a hand.
With these experiences close to my heart, I was able to remain stable throughout my early years of high school, High school is where I took my love for reading and writing to the next level, capturing the hearts of over 110k people as I wrote my very diverse novels. I grew my passion for reading and writing as I applied these self taught skills to my school work honouring me with two Advanced Placement courses and an honours class granting me to be top 20% of my graduating class.
As I look back to little elementary me, I realised that the passion that was slowly burning in me at such a young age has sparked a bigger fire that will will continue to burn as I take this journey into life.
My motivation comes from experience, from growing up with an immigrant family having to put in twice the work for me to succeed. A goal I have in life is to become a detective in the law enforcement. I would like to graduate with a degree in criminal justice and pursue my life long goal after being a police officer and studying for that position. My life took a toll throughout my high school years because of my anxiety. It really pushed me far back and took my motivation from me and made me feel alone. Last year I decided to be 10 steps ahead of my anxiety and change my life around for the better. It truly made me fail at a lot in my academics but thanks to my family and peers I have been able to leave that low point in my life behind and succeed
My goal is to go into the military and get my degree in psychology and become someone who helps people understand their minds and why they do certain things in their lives. I also want to open my own practice and give free or reduced services to veterans after they come out of the military with mental diseases and disabilities.
