During high school, I was a very rebellious student. Although I always achieved high grades and performed well in class, I was the student that was constantly out of uniform or late to school. This led to some issues as I was going into my senior year of high school. I wanted to get into "Senior Institute," which was a cohort of the twelfth grade that took honors and advanced placement courses. Because I was constantly disobeying school rules, I was not automatically admitted into Senior Institute; I had to write an appeal to go with my nomination. I wrote my appeal and was able to get into SI under the conditions that I followed all school rules during my senior year. I am thankful that I was granted this opportunity because I believe that it put me in a good place for getting into colleges. If I could go back, I would change my attendance. I now follow the motto, "early is on time, on time is late, late is unacceptable." Being punctual is a small thing that says a lot about your preparedness as an individual.
