Tell us about an activity that is important to you, and why. Please feel free to talk about an activity other than one you may have discussed in your essay.

I take much pride in being apart of my school's National Art Honors Society. The broad scope of projects that NAHS participates in is why I cherish being a member. We concentrate on working around the community by adding an element of artistic flair. One of the major projects that we annually partake in is Relay for Life, a cancer awareness and fundraising event that celebrates survivors and remind us of those who have died. Every year, we help raise hundreds of dollars by running in the relay and providing a face painting station during the relay to represent our school. In the spring of my junior year, I had the great honor of relaying with several cancer survivors and donors, a first hand experience of true tenacity.

Describe your academic interests and how you plan to pursue them at USC. Please feel free to address your first- and second-choice major selections.

At age 3, I got a taste of flight when I looked up toward the sky. Four Blue Angels surged past me in a diamond formation at the Golden Gate Bridge during San Francisco's annual Fleet Week. The unique thundering roar of their jet engines was unforgettable as they flirted with the sound barrier. Ever since then, I've been fascinated in the concept of flight. Although my first choice is to major in biology, my passion is in aviation. I plan to pursue this interest at USC by enrolling in the aerospace program as a second major. Because USC is a leading research institution, I'm confident that I can expect the best possible engineering courses. I also believe the number of distinguished pilots at USC, including Neil Armstrong, has become source of inspiration for students like myself who look toward the sky.
