Being nominated to be a member of the National Honor Society is an honor in itself. It shows me that I have achieved my goal to work as hard as I possibly can to stand out among my peers. Throughout my years here at American High School, I have always strove to do the best that I can to achieve the best grades possible. Not only do I focus on my academics, but also, I strive to be an asset to the high school. I have been a member of the cheerleading squad all four years. This squad has taught me a lot about unity. I try to bring what I learn on the sidelines to everyday life. I have learned to settle conflicts and learned to cooperate with a group of people. Being on the squad has also helped me in correcting other teammates and assisting them when it is necessary. These things can be used in anything, whether it be on a team or in the classroom, at work or in the community. I try to be involved in anything I can to help the school, from being an active member of the student council to participating in fundraisers and some community service activities. I believe that I would be an asset to the society because I always bring a positive attitude, and I always work hard to achieve my goals. I make every effort to assist my fellow students to do their best. I am also a very dedicated person. Everyday I follow the same routine. I go to practice, go to work, go home and do my homework. Besides family things, these have always been my top priorities. Everything else comes after these things. Being inducted into the National Honor Society would not only be a privilege, but it would be an honor.
