Throughout my years at Olive Harvey community college I believe curiosity and mindfulness has played a big role in my academic experiences and by having leadership skills and a never giving up attitude equipped with me everywhere I go has made me the type of student I am today. Since the first day I stepped foot into Olive-Harvey community college doors, hard work is what I have been chasing after. My academics I achieved thus far describes myself as a dream chaser with a “Failure is not an option” attitude. At Olive-Harvey College I had no idea what I wanted to major in but I knew the subjects Mathematics and Science has always sparked my interest ever since I attended Chicago Vocational Career Academy high school. During my fall and spring semester of 2013 at Olive-Harvey I enrolled in Mathematics courses as well as a Chemistry course in the summer of 2013. After I completed my courses my freshman semester I decided I wanted to pursue a pathway in Mechanical Engineering. While attending Olive Harvey College, I took advantage of opportunities to be active on campus. During my first semester I joined the Stem Robotics club and the Stem club. Toward the end of my freshman year I was recognized at my school as student of the month by my adviser Ms. Duron, who is a General Biology professor, academic adviser as well as a Phi Theta Kappa conductor. During my years at Olive Harvey I took challenging courses and remained active around my campus. Although some days it seemed tough, I have always kept in mind that I have a dream and every single day my goal is to do whatever it takes even with the little amount of energy I might have I would always push myself to greatness so I can make something happen to eventually reach my full potential. In the fall of 2014 I was inducted into the Phi Theta Kappa Lamda Iota chapter. The Phi Theta Kappa organization recognizes students with leadership skills, character and charity. I was also recognized as a presidential scholar and received a presidential scholar certificate. By the end of fall of 2014 I won the One Million degree scholarship. recognizes and empowers highly motivated community college students. During my sophomore year I was placed on the presidential scholars as well on the dean’s list. I also joined phi theta kappa lambda iota chapter. I also achieved the One Million Degree signature scholarship and now I am currently a second year scholar in the program. The One Million degree scholarship recognizes and empowers highly motivated community college students. In the program I was fortunate enough to meet amazing people that have the same goals as I and have an amazing coach who is also a Mechanical engineer. The program has helped me so much along the way of getting my college applications and applying to as many internships in my field of study. The program also has given me a mentor that comes to Olive Harvey each month to motivate me by engaging with my achievements and accomplishments. Recently during the spring of 2015 semester I have received many awards and scholarship achievements. I won the College Success Scholarship at Olive Harvey College, Olive-Harvey College Scholarship and the Cook County College Teachers Union scholarship as well as the Union Memorial book award at Olive Harvey College. Additionally, I was recently announced as a Phi Theta Kappa International Honor Society 2015 All-Academic Team All Illinois Academic Team member. The award recognizes two community college students from City Colleges of Chicago of each of the seven community college systems. The award recognizes scholarly achievements of students enrolled in Illinois’ Community Colleges presented by The Coca-Cola Scholars Foundation, and Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society. The power of curiosity has helped me along the way on my journey to accomplish my goals and achieve my all-time American dream, to climb the ladder of success. The experience I have had at Olive Harvey college has made me truly believe that my hard work, persevere and greatness will always be recognized and by working hard, never blending in and always standing out from being average will allow me to show the world the outstanding student I am.
