Participating in leadership has made me realize that a leader has power through consensus to make changes for the good of all. I was student body treasurer and vice president of my freshman class; sophomore class president and student government member-at-large, and am now senior class president. Each year my skill as a negotiator and peacemaker grew through experience. I have guided my 20 classmates in raising more than $7,000 to pay for events. I have played sports, including volleyball and canoe during my first two years of high school. I can delegate, multi-task, and juggle school, work, and extra-curricular activities with good balance. I have kept a 3.9 GPA while working 14 hours a week as a maid, being class president, volunteering, watching over my younger sibling and cousins, dancing hula, and helping out at home. I plan to attend the University of Colorado Boulder in fall 2012 and study pre-medicine. After I get board-certified as a doctor, I plan to return to Hawaii to become Hana's first Hawaiian pediatrician. I also plan to minor in business administration, perhaps medical business administration, because I feel knowing business as well as medicine would be an asset in setting up my own practice.
