I acted as a leader within my community, earningMar 14 2016Mechanical Engineering
I acted as a leader within my community, earning my Eagle Scout award, founding a Science and Engineering club at my high school, involving myself with the school Marching Band, Drama club, Math Team, and Academic Decathlon club. I kept myself busy and maintained a perfect GPA, while pursuing extracurricular learning and my passions at home. If I could recommend one strategy: do what you love. Don't worry about what your resume will look like. If you find yourself, and pursue your passions, you will shine in the application process.
