“Excuse me!” I elbowed my way through my school’s teachers and administrators as I raced toward the office. My fingers fumbled excitedly gripping the door handle. The clatter of the coins matched the beat of my pounding heart. “How much did we make?” I queried, short of breath. “Around forty-five hundred,” my Senate sponsor responded, surprised at my lack of breath. I voiced my thanks, and took off, dashing back to the gym where my fellow Senior Senators were...

Essay for the Joint Degree Programme at William&Mary;: Pin trading is a tradition among attendees at the Olympics, so naturally when I volunteered at the London Olympics, I felt compelled to partake in such a distinctive custom. My volunteer duties were nothing extraordinary—most of the time I ended up handing out water bottles to athletes and visitors—but there were many opportunities for human interaction and thus, many opportunities to trade pins.

Supplemental Essay: “Why us” school essay

University of Chicago is the first college I found that had a soul.

Though the novel may not be dense with literary devices, Thirteen Reasons Why should be studied because it challenges the perceptions of everyday interactions as well as provides readers with the inability to be oblivious to the issue of teenage suicide. My mother believes fervently that reading is one of the best ways to relax. So while on vacation, our family consistently visits a bookstore to select our own paper escape from reality. When my mother handed me Thirteen Reasons...

Pumpkin? Check. Mashed potatoes? Check. The clatter of stacking cans created a dependable beat that transformed my labor into a rhythmic second nature. Packing Thanksgiving care packages felt musical. I loved volunteering at the Action Center’s warehouse, a building chock-full with canned foods and clothing which I loaded into boxes for the Center to later distribute. I strengthened my relationships with my classmates who also volunteered; I enhanced my organizational skills; I bolstered the number of National Honor Society...
