    I have faced a lot of challenges through my life from living in a war torn country and moving to a new country as a teenager. When I first immigrated to the United States from Iraq in 2009 I faced the challenge of learning English. While I had studied English in school, I had only learned basic grammar and reading skills. I worked hard to study and learn more vocabulary to understand everything in order to improve the grades in my classes. The next challenge was how to understand the American culture and integrate with my peers. Some people treated me badly, but when I started improve academically in my classes they started to help me and respect me. Another challenge I experienced in my family is that when my parents immigrated to the United States could not work in their college field because their degree is from Iraq. I understand a college degree is very important part of my life. I cannot improve my life and work in my chosen career of photography without it.

    By winning this scholarship will help me attain my goals by finishing high school and fulfill my parents promise of going to college. I am willing to do anything that can help me get to college. I try my best at school either in homework, service hours, and working at the same time. I am a student athlete competing in cross country, track, and soccer, I work par-time with my mom at a my old middle school since like seventh grade. I need all the help I need to make my parents happy knowing that I got a college diploma, but money seems like a big issue for me and my family. I believe that without a education it is very hard to succeed in the world of today. So winning this scholarship will definitely help me reach that goal that I dearly want to accomplished. I don’t want to disappoint my them, they work very hard for me. One of my parents did not even go to a single day of school his whole life because he came from a poor family, even though he never went to a single day of school, he still turn out successfully, because of his hard work. This motivates so much that it amazes me, letting me know how lucky I am, that I am attending school. Thank you for you time.

    Everyone has there special qualities to stand out from the rest of the crowd. In my case, i tend to be very random, and always have a good sense of humor. I like to draw and act, i’ve even participated in plays at my school. Most of my friends are athletic, so when it comes to me, i’m the one who stands out from my group. I always am entertaining my friends with random subjects and my sweet personality. I’m probably the nicest person of my peers, and i stand out, because of it.

    Like Mr. Crabiel, I literally work tirelessly in many academic and leadership roles. I sleep no more than six hours a night because of my desire to expertly meet my many commitments. Throughout my life, I have worked as long and as hard as I possibly can to effect beneficial changes in both school and society.

    During the summer of tenth grade, I took a number theory course at Johns Hopkins University with students from Alaska, California, and Bogota, Colombia. Similarly, during the summer following eleventh grade, I was one of ninety students from New Jersey selected to attend the Governor’s School in the Sciences at Drew University. At Drew, I took courses in molecular orbital theory, special relativity, cognitive psychology, and I participated in an astrophysics research project. For my independent research project, I used a telescope to find the angular velocity of Pluto. With the angular velocity determined, I used Einstein’s field equations and Kepler’s laws to place an upper bound on the magnitude of the cosmological constant, which describes the curvature of space and the rate of the universe’s expansion.

    In addition to learning science, I recently lectured physics classes on special relativity at the request of my physics teacher. After lecturing one class for 45 minutes, one student bought many books on both general and special relativity to read during his study hall. Inspiring other students to search for knowledge kindles my own quest to understand the world and the people around me.

    As president of the National Honor Society, I tutor students with difficulties in various subject areas. In addition, I am ranked number one in my class with an SAT score of 1580 and SATII scores of 750 in math, 760 in writing, and 800 in physics. In school, I take the hardest possible courses including every AP course offered at the high school. I am the leading member of the Math Team, the Academic Team, and the Model Congress Team. In the area of leadership, I have recently received the Rotary Youth Leadership Award from a local rotary club, have been asked to attend the National Youth Leadership Forum on Law and the Constitution in Washington D.C., and wrote the winning essay on patriotism for South Plainfield’s VFW chapter. Currently enrolled in Spanish 6,I am a member of both the Spanish Club and the Spanish Honor Society. In addition, I recently was named a National Merit Scholar.

    Besides involvementin academic and leadership positions, I am active inathletics. For instance, I lift weights regularly. In addition, I am the captain of my school’s varsity tennis team. So far this year, my individual record on the team is 3-0.

    Working vigorously upon being elected Student Council President, I have begun a biweekly publication of student council activities and opinions. Also, the executive board under my direction has opened the school store for the first time in nearly a decade. With paint and wood, we turned a janitor’s closet into a fantastic store. I also direct many fund raisers and charity drives. For instance, I recently organized a charity drive that netted about $1,500 for the family of Alicia Lehman, a local girl who received a heart transplant.

    As Student Liaison to the South Plainfield Board of Education, I am working to introduce more advanced-placement courses, more reading of philosophy, and more math and science electives into the curriculum. At curriculum committee meetings, I have been effective in making Board members aware of the need for these courses. In addition, my speeches at public Board meetings often draw widespread support, which further helps to advance my plans for enhancing the curriculum.

    I have also been effective as a Sunday school teacher. By helping elementary school students formulate principles and morals, I make a difference in their lives every week. The value system that I hope to instill in them will last them their entire lives. I find teaching first-graders about Christ extremely rewarding.

    Clearly, I have devoted my life both to working to better myself and to improving civilization as a whole. Throughout the rest of my life, I hope to continue in this same manner of unselfish work. Just as freeholder Crabiel dedicates his life to public service, I commit my life to helping others and to advancing society’s level of understanding.
