Three Organizations That Impacted My World. "Unity is strength. . . when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved." --Mattie Stepanek There are so many clubs and organizations to choose from in life. When choosing a club make sure it’s something that you like and you’re interested in. I am able to say that I’m a part of many organizations, HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America), Student Government, AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination), and many more. I have been a part of Student Government for four years and held different positions. I have also been a member of HOSA for about four years. This is my first year of AVID and hope to be in this organization longer. Each one of these groups have helped me develop over the years. . They have taught me to believe in myself, help others in need, and always to be grateful for what I have. I have learned to work with other people, be a leader, and achieve my goals. They have helped me become a better person all around. The first organization I had ever joined was Student Government. To be honest in this group there is no such thing as a typical day. Every day it’s something different whether its homecoming, pep rallies, or even drug free week. However, one thing in common in all our events is helping our school. No matter what position we are in, we work together as a group to get the work done. A day in student government is sharing ideas, getting tasks completed, and helping one another if needed. This organization is the one that has shaped me the most. They have taught me to be a leader and gave me so many new opportunities in life. Some opportunities that student government has given me are being able to express my feelings, help others, and make the world a better place. One activity that we have done is feeding the homeless. One day we decided to help a church that feeds the homeless every Tuesday and Thursday. We collected clothes, food, and other items to bring to the church. However, student government had certain people bring chili so we can feed the homeless a hot meal. When the day had come, all of student government members got on the bus to go to the church to prepare the meal and give goodie bags to the homeless. We had two groups, one group was responsible of preparing the food and the other group had to make goodie bags. In those goodie bags we had essentials that people need like toothpaste, socks, soap, etc. Once we completed both things we loaded everything on the bus and headed downtown to where the people were waiting there for us. There were more than a 100 people in line waiting to get food. The age range was from infants to elderly. It was a very touching day, to know that we made a difference and helped our community. Experiences like this teach you to be thankful for what you have and not take things for granted. Opportunities like these make me love being a part of student government because I know I’m helping a variety of people on a daily basis. HOSA was the organization I joined when I wanted to be in the medical field. Even though I don’t want to go into the medical field anymore I stayed because I still like helping others in any way possible. Also, if I decide that law isn’t what I want anymore the medical field is my second choice. A typical day in HOSA would have to be learning about the human body, whether it’s muscle, skeletal, or the nervous system. It’s always something new when entering my HOSA class. We usually have a discussion on the topic and then have an activity to go with it. For example, when we learning about the cranial area we are given a packet to do. Then, the next day have a discussion about the packet and what we’ve learned. Finally, the teacher will give us all a face mask to color and label the different regions of the cranial. This class has helped me learn more
