Prompt:STANFORD STUDENTS POSSESS AN INTELLECTUAL VITALITY. REFLECT ON AN IDEA OR EXPERIENCE THAT HAS BEEN IMPORTANT TO YOUR INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT
Everything started with my attendance to science club. In the club, students could attend three different braches: math, biology and physics. Before I heard that, I was planning to attend computer science branch, physics or math. I was into physics and math but in the school, those braches were poorly supported. At the end of the process I ended up with biology.
At the beginning, I thought I would give up to study because biology didn't require any intelligence. As I learned genetics, animal physiology, plant physiology and other topics, I realized I was wrong because genetics required math skills; animal physiology, and plan physiology required intelligence, in order to understand how an organism lives. The more learned, the more my horizons broadened because it wasn't just biology I learned but the whole world. As I learned more, I became realization of how countries, social relations between people and so forth work and realized how they were similar with how living organisms live. If there were a problem in one of organs in an organism, everything would get affected.
As I became sophomore at my high school, I elected as president of science club. After that point, my responsibility was not just to study but also help other members in academic and social ways. It was a milestone for me. In three-year period, science club, presidency and responsibilities provided me to cover a lot of ground because the club administration and I made a lot of innovations for current members and next generation members. Throughout in my high school career, all I have done by now have been a great experience for me and I can never deny that biology and presidency have an enormous effect on my life and my intellectual knowledge.
