The programs offered at the honors college will allow me to achieve this goal of giving back to the community in a way that generates a long-lasting impact.

College students have short-term and long-term goals that they desire to achieve. Achieving a goal at any level would be a great accomplishment of mine.

Understanding my personal competencies will also help me improve my critical thinking skills. This is accomplished by understanding the personal competencies I already have that are strong and the ones that are weak. Then I will have to identify personal competencies that I will need to improve my critical thinking skills and come up with a plan to develop them.

I am willing to put in the time and effort necessary in order to do something that I love; therefore, I hope to gain leadership qualities and establish the foundation that will help to make me successful through my learning experience from the National Society of Leadership and Success.

I must find what interests me so that I can pick a major and know what I want to do in life.

I think long and hard and weigh the pros and cons before I come to a conclusion, because my outcome will not only affect me, but everyone around me also.
