    To me it is a great honor to be part of this generation because it shows my endurance, hard work, dedication, and deviation. In order to get into National Honor Society you have to have above average grades and be scholarship material. This is something that doesn’t come as easy to me as it does others. I have to put in a lot of time studying in order to get an outcome that I am pleased with. This shows that I am hardworking and dedicated. I can not recall a time that I didn’t turn in a project or assignment in on time. I am responsible,take initiative, and do not procrastinate. When there is a task to be done, I dig into it into it right away and active productive and efficient. Another quality look look at to join National Honor Society is your character. Students with a good character demonstrate honesty and integrity, fairness, respect, responsibility, caring, and citizenship in all their actions. Honesty and truth are morals that I personally like to live by. I also think it is important to be a friendly, nice, and caring person. My mom always taught me that you don't have to like everyone, but you do have to treat them right. Being apart of National Honor Society also allows me to do something that I love- volunteer, out in the community. I am always willing to work to benefit those in need without need of recognition of any kind. I try to give back to my school and community as much as I can. One example of a service project we did for National Honor Society was raking leaves in out in the community for the elderly. Members from National Honor Society would pile into someone’s car with our big rakes and went from house to house raking the leaves. The elderlies were so sweet and very thankful. Some even baked us cookies and desserts which was a great bonus. Many of the elders came out by us and loved talking to us. They were amazed how quickly…

    As quite the introvert, I never would have imagined myself as the secretary of such a renowned organization: the National Honor Society. However, I had decided to take on the challenge of running for board, requiring me to give a speech to our 500+ NHS members. My strengths did not lie in public speaking or persuasion like the other candidates. Instead, my speech involved me singing Mulan’s “Be a Man,” using ingenuity and humor to win over opinions. I believe that pushing yourself into an unfamiliar situation is the best way to learn and grow, as this approach demands problem solving and innovative thinking. NHS has pushed me to be more outgoing and active in the community by giving me the privilege of leadership, and I would definitely serve…
