<p>Yeah exactly.. I mean, I know I'll get into a good school.. I've just always hoped for something great.</p>
<p>Like, I really enjoy math.. Which may sound funny to some of you. (Math?!) So other than joining the Mathletes team at school (which I actually won a silver pin for), how can I express my interest in math? My high Math SAT score? That doesn't really say much, except that I'm good at taking a standardized test. I do tutor kids sometimes, but still.. Lots of teens do that.</p>
<p>Then there's Spanish. I love learning a new language, and am interested in exploring Anthropology in college because it combines a lot of things I like -- History, language, biology, foreign cultures.. And would give me a chance to study abroad, which I REALLY want to do.
I remember in 3rd grade, my school had an International Festival.. We worked in groups and made display tables about different countries.. It was amazing. (I did Kenya.. We had corn bread on display because corn is on of their chief imports or exports (I don't even remember which, ha)), I think we had coffee to drink because.. aren't there coffee beans in Kenya? And we had a Make Your Own Necklace/Bracelet With These Beads station because Kenyans love to adorn themselves and they're big on jewelry and stuff like that. This was my fondest memory of elementary school, and I tried organizing a World Cultures Club at my school, but it never went through. =( I would have LOVED that.</p>
<p>And then there's art. Although I haven't done much artwork lately outside of my class at school, it's something I really love, and I used to be in a Studio Art class where I created quite a few pieces that I'm proud of, including a pencil sketch of a sneaker (the thing that won me 2nd prize at my school's art contest last year). Even if I were to take an art class on Saturdays or Sundays, how much would that help? (Although I really should consider it just as a means of relaxing.)</p>
