School: Williamsport High School
Service above self gives me the opportunity to help others who are going
through tough times and are not as fortunate as myself. As a member
for Relay for Life, it brings me great satisfaction to know that I am
making a difference helping others in my community and across the
world win a battle that too many people have lost.
Service above self also means that I can spread the knowledge given to me to
others. As a second degree black belt at White Tiger Martial Arts I
get the opportunity to pass what I have learned down to other
students. These students are adults as well as children. Knowing
that I am making a difference in someone’s life and giving them
information that could possibly keep them out of harm’s way –
even saving their life – brings me a great deal of happiness.
The core value of service above self has impacted me to do things with me
life that has assisted and educated others. I want to obtain my
degree in Biochemistry and eventually earn my PhD. I plan to
continue to manifest these values in my life by doing lab research
and studying infectious diseases with the hope finding curses while
sharing the knowledge I have learned along the way.
