I am a Canadian citizen, living in Orlando, FL (nine years now). In 2012 I had the opportunity to travel back to Canada with my U13 team and participate in the Canadian National Championships in the U14 division where we won the Canadian National Championship. This is just one of the many memorable experiences that I have achieved while playing the sport that I love.
Not only have I excelled in the sport of volleyball, but I am also very active in my church, and high school where I will graduate with honours and a have accomplished myself within our Air Force JROTC program.
Timber Creek High School (Orlando, FL) has a population in excess of 4,000 students. I am currently a senior and active in a number of clubs including: Fellowship of Christian Athletes (officer), BETA Club, Cancer Awareness Society, National Honor Society and Pit Crew (Peer Inclusion Team).
The Air Force JROTC program takes up a large part of my free time as I currently serve as the Vice Wing Commander, responsible for keeping track of the cadets in the positions below me to ensure our Unit is functioning efficiently and on track to meeting our goals. Our Unit currently has 240 enrolled students making it a very dynamic program to oversee.
In 2018 my Air Force JROTC Drill Team competed in the Drill Team National Championships, where we finished 6th overall.
I have currently taken all honours classes, 6 AP classes, and 3 dual enrollment classes. I have a GPA of 3.7 and a weighted GPA of 4.5.
My Volunteer and Work Experience
Over my high school career, I have amassed over 500 volunteer hours by working through the following:
Helping coach middle school and YMCA volleyball
Numerous AFJROTC events
Numerous National Honor Society events
Cancer Awareness Society Events
Pit Crew (Peer Inclusion Team)
Numberous BETA Club events
My Skills and Abilities
I would say that four years of High School involvement within the JROTC program has helped me develop some solid leadership skills.
I am also involved in the Timber Creek Peer Inclusion Team (PIT crew). This program is designed to for students to work with students with disabilities and students with educational disabilities. PIT Crew members help these students with everything from educational help with their studies to job training. The whole purpose of the PIT Crew program is to promote inclusion.
Because I am involved in numerous school clubs, a job, as well as time demanding classes, I would say I have very good time management.
