College entrance essay

In my everyday life, at school and in my community, I have
used the skills I built in 4-H. I have been active in French Honor
Society, Youth Teaching Youth and I am on dance line at Jan’s School
of Dance.
Through all my years of high school I have been an active
member of the French Honor Society. To be a member we are
required to attend meetings and help work at several promotions.
Some of the opportunities I have had through FHS are working closely
with the community in our annual “Mardi Gras” festival. This past
summer I was able to travel to France for three weeks to tour the
country and stay with a French family.
To have the chance to go into an elementary class and work
hands on with the kids to help them build responsible choices is what
Youth Teaching Youth is all about. I have greatly enjoyed doing this
because I love working with kids and I support the messages that we
teach. YTY also gives you a chance to build relationships with the kids
in the community.
To be a part of a team, it takes responsibility and dedication.
These are two things I have acquired by being on dance line. It is
necessary that everyone is at practice on time and is participating.
Another plus to dancing at Jan’s is she gives her older students a
chance to help teach the younger kids.
These activities are very important in the community that I am a
part of. They give me leadership skills, public relation skills,
responsibility and dedication. All the while I am giving the same back
to the community.
