The extra-curricular activities that I am involved in includes Tri-Beta, AED, AQ Stars, and Habitat for Humanity. As a biology major, Tri-Beta (an honors biology society) provides me with a community that I can seek help from, as well as participate in community service opportunities to teach science to children in neighboring elementary schools. Thorough AED, which is a Pre-Health club, I have the opportunity to learn about a variety of careers in the medical field as well and volunteer at a local rehabilitation center. Both of these clubs are academic based but realize the importance of service, thus helping me to understand the importance of not only what I am studying in class, but how my major can assist me in bettering my community. AQ Stars is a club that works to raise money for the Make-A-Wish foundation. By helping volunteer for numerous events throughout the year, we are able to raise thousands of dollars to help grant wishes for childre
n. As a member of Habitat for Humanity I am given an opportunity to help those suffering from poverty. Many of the families that we have built houses for have recently experienced some sort of tragedy and our goal is to alleviate some of that financial burden by providing a safe, affordable place to call home. By building houses, I know I am not just helping a family in need, but giving back to my community as well.

I am the Student Council President for my school. I am a member of the Future Business Leaders of America, the National Honor Society, and a member of Interact. I was also nominated by my school and picked by a board to attend the 2015, Florida American Legion Boys State held at Florida State University this past summer. I spent a week learning along with 530 other Florida boys about Florida's laws and elected official roles. We learned the electoral process, and I won my parties nomination for Governor, where I ran my election on education reform. Education is very important to me and I believe we can make it better for the generations to come. In addition to making an impact in my school and graduating class, I play sports. I have played varsity football all 4 years in high school, I have played varsity basketball for 3 years. In both sports I have been captain for the last 3 years. I take leadership seriously, even if its in extra curricular activities or the classroom.

Outside school, I like to take part in activities that are stimulating, both mentally and physically. I like to express myself with many different art forms, and find new ways to relax and put my mind at ease.
On Wednesdays, I participate in my church's Youth Choir. I have been a part of the music program at my church since I was in Preschool. We meet from5:30 to 6:30 in the evening, from September all the way through late May. We sing in worship and lead the congregation in hymns and other parts of the service about three Sundays each month. Every other summer, the Youth Choir goes on a choir tour to a region of the country. This summer our trip will be to Seattle and the surrounding area. The group is comprised of seventh through twelfth graders, giving the older kids and important job of being a leader. I enjoy being a role model for the younger kids, as I once had to look up to my elders when I was younger. Being in this group, I have learned to express myself with song, teaching me to gain even more from doing something that I enjoy. Besides leadership, I have also learned how to stick with something, as I have been a member for six years now. Youth Choir has also taught me to step out of my comfort zone by giving me solos.
I also have made a habit of baking every Wednesday, before or after choir. My friends and I have coined this "Baking Wednesdays". I look for a new treat to bake in the early days of the week, and then bake the treats on Wednesday night, and bring them to school to share with whomever wants oneon Thursday. It started out as an opportunity for me to have some scheduled baking time in the week, as baking is a passion I have, and turned into a fun way for me to make other peoples' days a little brighter. I have learned that a small thing that I do can have a huge impact on others, and have learned to embrace this. This activity can help me in the future by reminding me that I can make a difference no matter how small, and also provide an outlet for me to do something I love. I have also learned to work with what I have, since recipes do not always lay out ingredients I like to work with, meaning I have to change things up from time to time. This has helped me to be more confident in my decisions.
Every morning, on weekdays and weekends, I wake up at 6:15 in the morning to do Yoga. This morning exercise has helped me to get ready for the day both mentally and physically. I find this time to be very relaxing, and I am better able to feel in the moment, rather than rushed and thinking about the future. Yoga had taught me to be cool and collected, and will be a relaxing outlet when things get stressful in my college years. It has reminded me what a few minutes of relaxing can do to calm me down.
On nights where I find I have a bit of extra time, I like to paint. I find that painting is a calming experience for me, and that I can be very creative when I pick up a paint brush. I also like to spend time cleaning and organizing, two activities that benefit me for the satisfaction I feel after I have made a spot more functional, and benefit others by creating a beautiful environment. I also spend some of my time rearranging my room, an activity I have enjoyed since I was about five years old. I do this about monthly, and find it enjoyable to fix around a space to make it functional and pleasing to the eyes. This skill will definitely help me in college, as I will have to make a small dorm space very functional, and will feel good if it looks good as well.

When not happily buried in my curricular activities, I spend my time with coming up with creative ways to expand my sustainable lifestyle. I compost everything that I can get my hands on - food scraps, paper items, dryer lint, wood chips, yard clippings; there’s something miraculous about taking would-be refuse and turning it into fresh, viable soil! I recycle all of the things that I use (if it isn’t compostable, that is). I make it a habit, almost a form of entertainment, to pick up trash and things that can be recycled when I’m out and about; doing this helps to remind me of the impact that one person can make. I like to think that these actions make this world a better place; that by making small contributions I will be an example to some and an inspiration for others. The subplan in my Environmental Science degree is sustainability. This asks that I be a leader in living a sustainable lifestyle if I am to ask others to do the same.
I practice yoga and meditation (when I have time) and bike to school daily. Physical exertion creates a certain clarity of mind, and as long as I’m spending thousands of dollars on my education I’d like to have a clear mind ready to learn and retain information. As a perk, bicycling to school has a negligible ecological footprint!
I feel strongly about community education; I believe that it enables anyone to do something important in their life, clarifying issues that affect them on both a local and global level. I get to be a part of that process by volunteering for the Watershed Management Group (WMG), an organization that provides water reclamation resources for local Tucsonans.
