-Debate team. My events were Domestic Extemp and Congressional Debate where I went to state in both my junior year. Also did Informative Speaking didn’t go to state for it (Member of NSDA) I will most likely be a captain next year as well.

-President of National Honor Society: I really wanted this spot because I get to give a speech at graduation which I know is kind of low. One of my biggest accomplishments because I am in love with service and everything that has to do with community. This was really important to me and I wanted to make my mother happy.

-Created a Club known as Girl Up which raises money for the United Nations for Girls all over the world (President). Far most one of my biggest accomplishments ever! I really love Girl Up and it’s extremely important to me and my little baby, that I nourished! One of the supported girls all over the world.

-Started an annual drive at our school that collects pads, tampons, and other stuff for women at Haven for Hope a local homeless shelter in our city.

-Created an annual color run called: A Walk For Her was one open to the whole city. We raised about 1,000 dollars and over 150 people showed.

-Started a girl’s camp over the summer that has different activities for girls at my school that talk about careers and getting in touch with who you want to be called #GirlsCan. We raised a lot of money and ended up sending it to the United Nations and other small companies like Built By Girls and Girls Who Code that help teenage girls out.

-I plan to become a Girl Up teen advisor for next year

-Youth Community Outreach Leader for church; I organize all the community service activities and clothing distributions that youth in the church does. Also super important to me and I loved it so much! We revamped a clothing distribution at our church and it was super successful. Clothing distribution linked up with the food distribution as well. I love it we’ve done a lot as a group of youth

-Volunteered over the Summer at Haven for Hope tutoring kids and also at my local hospital.

-Round Table (We talk about Social Issues and problems) linked up with Girl Up and made a culture fest at my school.

-Play piano for church every Sunday (I’ve been playing it for a while like 8 years)

-Was in schools Orchestra for two years. Was second chair/first stand led orchestra to sweepstakes at UIL. Did Solo and Ensemble where I received the highest ranking freshman year

Teacher REC’s thinking about getting
Bio Teacher - 10/10 sponsor of my club she’s a GTown alumni
Principal - she knows me very well and I think it would be a good letter
English Teacher - knows me and is aware of my personality

You have solid credentials and hooks, like the poster above said - an above average chance.
