Homework Help: college application short response

Posted by kate on Saturday, January 13, 2007 at 1:16pm.

I wish you could help me the short answer of my college application essay.
Many thanks

Question:
Please briefly elaborate on one of your activities.
I was elected as the President of the class of 2007 in high school. My job of being a President was to supervise students participating in school and community activities and coordinate teachers. I organized the 2005 New Year¡¯s Overnight Carnival, and assisted members of my class to participate in the 2005 High School Art Festival, the 2005 High School Sport Meeting, the 2005 High School Debate Contest, and the 2005 High School Fashion Show. I also established a profound friendship between students in my high school and the kids in Laurel Orphanage. Moreover, one of my significant coordination with teachers was to successfully develop a Night Classes program which had given extra help for many students with needs. As working in the president position, my leadership skills have been accelerated. Nowadays leadership is more important than many other skills for a person. I am glad that I had developed this elaborate skill in high school that will be more helpful for me when I go to the college.
