New York Times Scholarship - Part III
My one greatest academic achievement that I've accomplished
would have to be keeping good and consistent grades throughout my
three and half years in high school.
This single thing, even though it is over a span of years, is the most
important to me because after all the hard work that you've put in, you
I think this number
is the most important one because it symbolizes what I've done over a
substantial and important part of my life. This shows that I can stay on
track over a period of time and perform the tasks that I'm put to do even
with distractions along the way.
As most people who have passed through high school know, there
are lots of pressures that a student goes through. Besides the peer
pressures of cutting class and doing what my friends are doing, I also
have to juggle extra curricular activities, such as an and a
part-time job working at . All this on top of the tons
of homework that teachers assign and all the stress involved with the
college application process, might just drive anyone off track, especially
over the course of four years.
The only way to survive all these things is to stay focused on your
task and be disciplined throughout the four years. This is why I believe
that my cumulative average is my most important academic achievement.
