I am currently in my 1st year at the University of Georgia with a intended double major in Finance and Economics. I am eager to find ways to increase my knowledge of the finance field through certain unique experiences.
Volunteering with Technocademy has been a truly incredible experience. It is amazing to see the faces of senior citizens light up after teaching them how to Facetime their grandchildren or text their friends. I have a total of 200 service hours logged on to GivingPoint as of November 2017 for my volunteer service with this non-profit. Also by serving as the Director of Technocadmey Alpharetta, I have been able to make some effective changes and adjustments that have had a huge impact in my community.
One of the most important phrase in the Scout Oath is "to help other people at all times". Over the past 6 years, I have been motivated to do just that. One of my most successful project was my Eagle Project, where I built a wooden information kiosk to help my community navigate through the trail while being safe. Some of my other favorite service events include: cleaning up the local trails, cooking fresh cobblers at old age homes, and teaching safety and first aid to younger Cub Scouts.
The Eagle Scout rank is the highest rank in Boy Scouts. To get this rank, over the past 6 years I have earned 20+ merit badges, and served in various leadership positions within the troop. Finally for my Eagle Project, I built a wooden informational kiosk on the Greenway. This kiosk was built to hold information regarding the trail such as maps and safety information.
Through my volunteer work with Technocademy, I had the opportunity to apply and earn a spot on the YSA Global Youth Council. The Global Youth Council is made up of students all around the world who are eager to improve their community and world through unique ideas.
Through FBLA, I have earned multiple awards and have been recognized at the Region and State levels and have competed at the National level. I have placed in the top 10 at the region and state level every single year for competitive events. I also earned the Future level of the business achievement awards.
English has always been one of my favorite subjects. I enjoy reading, and have a unique perspective on some texts. I often tutor peers with essay writing and literature analysis. NEHS has provided me with multiple opportunities to volunteer at libraries, tutor peers, and participate in poem cafes.
