This upcoming Saturday, I am graduating from high school and receiving my Advanced Diploma. I am finishing my senior year with a GPA of 95.1 and a class rank of 11 which puts me in the top 10% of my class. I never thought that I would only be 10 people away from being valedictorian since I have so many intelligent, driven classmates. When I started my freshman year, I told myself that I was going to partake in numerous extra-curricular activities because I wanted to get outside of my comfort zone. I ended up joining Spanish Club, History Club and my favorite, Rotary Interact. I have at least 60 volunteer hours since joining that club and that is 60 hours I have spent helping numerous people in my community. Throughout my time in high school, I have received 3 awards. 2 awards for my scholastic achievement during my Junior and Senior year and an award for my leadership in Rotary Interact. Last year, I was also inducted into National Honor Society. These past 4 years have shaped me into the individual that I am today and I am so excited for the next chapter of my life as being a business student.
