A LEADER FROM WITHIN Throughout my lifetime, I have learned that I am a natural-born leader. I willingly accept new challenges, conquer my goals, and strive to create a better community for myself, and those around me. From the time I began middle school, my leadership abilities became apparent. I enrolled in the Leadership class at the middle school where I thrived for two years. During my second year in the middle school leadership class, I enthusiastically served as the ASB president.
Most Beneficial College Courses In today’s world, college is an essential step to reaching a good career and defining who you are to yourself and others. However, while going to college a student must endure numerous courses that encompass a wide variety of areas to receive the degree they are going for. On my quest through college, I have found that three fundamental classes have helped me throughout many of my other classes that I have taken. These three classes are a speech, English, and a computer skills class. While these three classes may seem very basic and generic, a student definitely needs these classes to help and guide them throughout their college career.
In this model students can have internships or participate in work-study programs while completing graduation requirements online.

The National Honor Society is a token of excellence that symbolizes hard work, motivation, and all around character. Being apart of NHS lets others know you mean business. Over the course of my four-year high school career, I'v been able to prove myself worthy of the recognition. As I reminisce over the past three years and a half, I remember quite vividly several key moments when I was hit with difficult obstacles and could have easily given up on everything I'd achieved. I've watched some of my peers give up and as a student with exemplary leadership and role model qualities, I chose to overcome those obstacles to show my peers that a little hard work goes a long way.
In the fall of 2010 I left BRCC with a degree in Liberal Arts and certificate in general studies. I am in my third semester at Southern and I am enjoying every minute and I could not be more proud of this institution despite what’s been said or what’s going on. After I receive my bachelors’ degree in Psychology and get certified in Health & Physical Education & Adapted Physical Education, I plan on getting my masters in Supervision and Administration. I chose teacher education program at Southern because of the quality teachers that have came through the SUBR teacher education program. I currently work with children with disability in the Zachary Community School System and love every minute because you get an opportunity to reach out to children who never really had chance and to be able to give them a chance is very rewarding.
My journey to where I am now all began with a goal I made four years ago, to be the valedictorian. While it seemed unrealistic at the time, it gave me a direction and plan to work toward. I encourage all of you to set goals for yourself and to strongly stand for something that can give your life a direction and purpose. As a fellow member of the graduating class of 2005 I love all of you guys and wish you the best of luck in your
For two years I watched and assisted students achieve their dream of obtaining a degree. They did this in part because of the explanation I provide that those without a degree would always be the last considered for a position and the first let go.

I could not and would not continue that hypocrisy.
