LEAD 2012 was one of the best experiences for me. It helped me improve in many ways and has overall bettered my life. I am now a junior at Great Mills High School, in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) program, and currently taking 4 AP classes including Biology, Calculus, World History, and Language & Composition. I have been a part of the Varsity Golf and Varsity Swim team since my freshman year. This fall I earned the Sportsmanship Award for Varsity Golf. It’s an award given to one person on the team that shows the most teamwork and sportsmanship. I have been on the Honor Roll every year and have been ranked in the top 10% of my class. I am currently starting my college search and have my eyes set the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
Within the next couple of months I plan to start on some college visits. I just applied for the Naval Academy Summer Seminar, and plan to take the ACT for the first time and the SAT for my second time. I’m trying to get my SAT score above my 2000 score goal as my first SAT score was a 1730. So I’m not that far off. Hopefully, with me being more active in extracurricular activities and more open to people, I can achieve my current goals, and goals that come up in the future.
