American Lot Essay

This summer flew by! I'm so excited to be back in school again because there were some very boring weeks of summer where I didn't even get out of bed. I can't wait to learn about new topics and be the best that I can be as a student and as a person. As a student my greatest strengths are organization and getting my work in on time. It is very hard to get used to the new grading system but what keeps me organized and punctual is the thought that I have the opportunity of earning a better grade on an assignment than turning it in late. My weakness is procrastination. I almost always have my work in on time but I usually save it until last minute (sort of like this assignment..) and then I'm loaded with homework. As a person I feel that my greatest strength is being a leader because I am very outgoing and it's very easy for me to get to know someone. Usually in high ...view middle of the document...

I hope to make a difference and help all of the people I can. Just today, I saw that someone's car had broken down in the student parking lot and I offered to help them jump it even though I had no idea how to do it. Even if it's a small deed it still makes a difference.
I currently don't have a stable job because of my after school activities but I do babysit on the weekends for an amazing family in Avon. The two children I babysit have become like my younger siblings which gives me a different perspective since I'm the youngest child in my family. My older sister Sonya just turned 22 and graduated from Farmington High School is 2009. I participate in a few activities after school like football and lacrosse. In the fall I manage the boys football team because it is one of my favorite sports and I get to help out right where all the action happens. In the spring I play girls lacrosse and this year will be my second year on the team. I really enjoy lacrosse because the team becomes a family and no one is ever left behind. The upperclassmen girls are so helpful and are amazing role models.
I live by the saying of "Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself" by Robert Frost. I think this quote is good to live by because in today's society it is hard to be who you are. I have this opinion because people are constantly being pressured to look a certain way or act some way but this quote helps me be myself.
I am very passionate about making a difference in the world by helping others as much as I can. I love learning different languages because I can communicate with a variety of people and not be limited to helping only people who speak English. I have an advantage because I was the first person in my family to be born in America so I have the privilege of speaking English and Russian fluently. I've been learning Spanish for 7 years now and I have started learning sign language.
