Extracurricular Experience 

Extra-curricular activities play an important role in shaping character, and I am proud to have served as advisor for projects such as leadership conferences, philanthropic activities, and clubs that allowed students to become well-rounded citizens beyond the academic sphere. I am committed to participating in the life of my community, and, whenever possible, volunteer for organizations that involve outreach.
