LEADERSHIP/VOLUNTEER EXPERIENCE:

Choice Technical Academy                       

Student Congress & Student Leadership                                     

    This opportunity helped me learn a lot about leadership. I was responsible for initiating school rules and recruiting new students. This position also had a lot of responsibility, as I had to coordinate school events, inform community members about my school, and arrange meetings. Along the way, I assisted students with various projects and helped advance their mathematical abilities. Problems were solved, and students ideas were valued.

Tutor at Roosevelt Community School

    I taught non-English speakers effective methods of learning and studying the Naturalization Citizenship test. Through encouragement and proper guidance, students were able to successfully learn English. The students studied English words, sentences, and proper pronunciation.
