i've been on the academic honor roll all of high school of course and was recognized at the regional science fair thus advancing to state, i have also won awards at district competition for UIL Current Events and i am an AP scholar with honor.
Volunteer Work (150-200 hrs)
-helped repaint house working with muslim-jewish interfaith organization
-led youth prayers during holy month of ramadan
-helped teachers of a religious part-time school with students
-worked at library with shelving books, etc.
I am also teaching at a Weekend Islamic school started by my parent. This is a paying job.
Also not mentioned is the fact that from the summer following my freshman year until now i have been in a program where students memorize the entire Quran (Koran). This is a major commitment that takes several years and I have had to attend classes throughout the year and all during the summer. It is especially tough considering I play soccer and have to work with my other EC's along with the AP workload.
I want to major in public health and become an epidemiologist. I have a great interest in diseases and am inspired by Richard Preston's work, who I plan to write an essay about.
My recs should be good as well
