My dreams of being inducted into the honor society are getting closer to becoming reality. As I approach this reality it brings to mind the ninth grade when I entered in the high school an ignorant and immature teen. I never even considered that I could achieve the level of standards of the National Honor Society. It was two years ago at the end of my sophomore year that I realized how mush I wanted this. When I came back to school as a junior I decided that no one and nothing was going to destroy my dreams of becoming a successful young woman. That is when I began to make the transition between a girl and a young woman. Read More
