Describe one specific example of your leadership. (The writer of your letter of recommendation re: Leadership  Abilities and Potential must confirm this experience). 

I have been in Choraliers, our schools advance show choir, since my freshman year of high school, and currently the only four year member due to how competitive the class is. I am a two year elected team leader and this year I was appointed dance captain of the Choraliers where I was allowed to choreograph, teach and lead the classroom throughout the year during classroom rehearsals and performances. Last month, our music director was scheduled out for a week and he announced I would be in charge of the classroom, on my own, to continue our choreography for an upcoming competition. I was very humbled and excited to take on the challenge of finishing our routine and cleaning up our moves. I came home and learned all the choreography moves in advance and throughout that week I was able to teach the ensembles. By the end of the week our class routine was completed and cleaned. Although the week was extremely challenging, the hard work paid off when our class received a gold medal during the ISSMA Jazz Contest.

Describe a recent particularly satisfying public service activity. (The writer of your letter of recommendation re: Public Service must confirm this).

Community service is something that I am very passionate about and a calling on my life. Being involved in ministries at church since I was 8 years old has given me the opportunity to serve in many different areas. One of my recent satisfying community service was praying with and feeding an underserved community in Gary, Indiana outside of the Brother’s Keeper shelter. My Pastor cooked meals through a food truck he owned and together with members of our congregation, we fed over 80 individuals and prayed with people who welcomed prayers. Being able to provide others with food, essentials and even having the chance to pray with strangers is something that is a humbling experience and something I loved being a part of.

Describe the education program you intend to pursue if you receive the scholarship.

I will be attending Indiana University Bloomington in the fall to pursue a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. After completing my prerequisites my first two semesters, I’ll begin the competitive nursing program. I will continue to work hard, be diligent, and persevere, to keep up with my coursework. Indiana University is a very big university and offers a lot of opportunities for their students from academics to student life. The nursing program at Indiana University is one of the highest ranked universities in Indiana and I am very blessed to have been accepted into IU and for the opportunity to pursue my undergraduate education through their programs.
