I am typically rather calm, but whenever a topic of discussion grabs my interest, I become somewhat more energetic. As most people would, I presume. I alternate between shining idealism and more callous pessimism, generally pessimism. I enjoy arguing/debating with others in a reasonable manner. I have accomplished little of great importance, although I suppose one could consider such things as winning the rights to fertilization and such momentous (Although that was hardly the point of the question.)
I am inspired by many things, although usually it is a rather quirky work ethic that drives me to do various tasks.
Campus and Community Involvement
I do not volunteer unless I am part of a club/society that requires such, in which case I willingly participate. I find myself largely indifferent to sports, except for personal amusement now and again. I did enjoy my time with the school newspaper as partial editor/writer, and I would not mind working on the UH newspaper if I am qualified to do so eventually. I do look forward to seeing the clubs that are relevant to my interests around campus
Awards and Honors
Most awards and honors I received in high school (James E. Taylor High School, KISD) are negligible and hardly relevant to my major, such as an award for my work on the school newspaper. I did receive a few awards for academic excellence, such as ‘Commended’ on the PSAT/NMSQT exam, which was given to the top 50,000 scores out of roughly 1.5 million students in the US. I also was part of a team that placed 2nd in the 2011 Sam Houston State University Academic Challenge Tournament. Our team qualified for the State level the following year, but was unable to compete due to certain circumstances out of our control.
I am not taking any languages at this time, but I do plan on taking at least one semester of Spanish to refresh my knowledge of the language. I do not plan to study abroad at this time.
I am unable to answer this question at the moment due to my lack of familiarity with the types of research projects conducted at UH. I expect to be capable of more fully answering this question in the future.
I do not plan to take any further education after I have earned my Bachelor’s degree, although this position may change as I progress. At this time, I plan to have begun working by the time I have graduated.
