Activities and Societies:
National Honor Society, Arnold Damen Chapter, for leadership, service, and character. I was qualified for this society because of my GPA and was further accepted because of my community service and dedication to my extra curricular activities such as figure skating and lacrosse.
Lacrosse: I was a member of SICP’s Wolfpack Club, Junior Varsity Team for grades 9, 10, 11 and 12. As a spring sport this activity was 10 hours per week and 13 weeks per year. Participating in this sport brought me closer with other students of various grades, thought me communication. As a club sport, I also learned promoting and advertising skills in order to gain new interested members each season.
Synchronized Ice Skating: I was a team member of the Robert Crown Jewels of the Robert Crown Center in Evanston, Illinois. I participated during grades 6, 7, 9, 10 and 11. Practices and competitions consisted of 2 hours per week for 37 weeks. This team sport is unlike others because every participant is included during the entire performance so every individual’s abilities must always be on point. This sport consisted of choreographic practices on and off the ice and traveling competitions around the Chicagoland Area, as well as in locations around the Midwest. This was very fun but high-pressured activity that was very unique. Since most figure skating is usually an individualist sport, I enjoyed being on team. I learned communication on the ice, increasingly became a better leader and demonstrated almost year-long dedication.
SICP’S School Newspaper: ‘SPIRIT’ Writer grades 10 and 11; 3 hours per week, 4 weeks per year. Through this activity, I was able to proudly create and edit articles of booth assigned topics and of choice. This small scale, monthly newspaper opened my eyes to journalism and creative advertising.
SICP’s Welcoming Committee Tour Guide: during the annual Open House, I participate din this event during all my 4 years of high school. It is a one day, all day event that choices for prospective students. Participating in this event always gained personal and community school pride. I learned communication and leadership.
