This is for the national eagle scout association scholarship- This should not be a boring essay- It can be no more than 500 words- It should not state the Scout Law as an example of character.
How has Scouting shaped your character? How has Scouting impacted your life:? Please use specific examples
Some basic and background info :
Began scouting as a boy scout in 1st grade- a fairly tumultuous time in my life as my parents had just gotten divorced and my dad was MIA. My scout leader- became a mentor – and even when I had issues in school, would come to my house and help guide me- he was a role model and encouraged me — through him I learned empathy because of how much he took out of his free time to help me and my family– ( I am the oldest of three brothers- and my mom was a single mother) I was often the only cub scout with a mother at meetings instead of a father. –
as the oldest I had more responsibilities to help at home since my mom worked full time- so scouting also gave me an outlet to have fun- do camp outs – challenge myself – through pine wood derby’s and merit badges as well as all the ranks through completing all requirements for each rank all the way to Eagle- and completing my project and the board of review- I learned follow through /diligence – obedience etc.
but in terms of shaping my character- I would like to believe that my greatest character trait or value – is integrity. Yes I also learned that from my home with my mom- as she instilled that- but scouts taught me also about being held accountable for my actions as I was always a role model for younger and new scouts- and wanted to set a new example. ethical etc..
When I finished the ” arrow of light” at the end of cub scouts which many don’t ever complete- my scout leader helped to bridge me to boy scouts. Unfortunately, that particular scout leader stopped leading for a while and i had to go to a different boy scout troop– after a few years, I started to lose my lust for scouts as I was crazy busy with a rigorous course load in high school- all AP classes etc.. and then so many other necessary activities from robotics to national honor society- but most because I am a competitive swimmer and have been since the age of 5- and at the time was hoping to swim in college. So i began pushing scouts to the backseat because I could not do it all and swimming and grades were number one. I was only one rank away from eagle and was questioning quitting– but I was able to reconnect with my first cub scout leaders who had been the mentor etc.. as he began leading scouts again. I transferred to his unit and through his mentoring- again diligence- empathy- etc.. and being held accountable- under his leadership- i found myself again and finished my eagle project and board of review receiving the rank of eagle. –
Obviously please don’t write what I wrote, but need to use the examples I stated above since the essay asks for examples.
I would like the essay to POP and make me stand out since it is a scholarship essay.
Please don’t hesitate to ask me for additional information if needed.
again. Only 500 words allowed.
