Scholars Event -ZeroWaste Inititative

Zero Waste events minimize waste at least 20% (OSU). During this event volunteers placed recycle bins around parking lots while people are tailgating before OSU games and educate them on the benefits of recycling.



Heads Up is an initiative through the College of Medicine to improve healthcare literacy of underprivileged populations. At the brain station we taught kids about the different parts of the brain with real live human brains.

Year in Review

My first semester at OSU has been an eye opening one. I believe I have gotten acquainted to the University’s resources and know what I need to change for me to be successful next semester. I have also found a community service organization that I believe values the same programs I do and plan to apply for a leadership position with them as well next semester. College is on a whole another level than high school with them adopting a high pace learning environment. So with the assistance of my scholars class and survey class I have adopted a new effective way to study that lines up with the teaching style of college.



  • Global Awareness: Students cultivate and develop their appreciation for diversity and each individual’s unique differences. For example, consider course work, study abroad, involvement in cultural organizations or activities, etc.
  • Original Inquiry: Honors & Scholars students understand the research process by engaging in experiences ranging from in-class scholarly endeavors to creative inquiry projects to independent experiences with top researchers across campus and in the global community. For example, consider research, creative productions or performances, advanced course work, etc.
  • Academic Enrichment: Honors & Scholars students pursue academic excellence through rigorous curricular experiences beyond the university norm both in and out of the classroom.
  • Leadership Development: Honors & Scholars students develop leadership skills that can be demonstrated in the classroom, in the community, in their co-curricular activities, and in their future roles in society.
  • Service Engagement: Honors & Scholars students commit to service to the community.


As of now during my first and second year I plan to focus on the Orginal Inquiry and Service Engagement section of G.O.A.L.S. I have been applying to many research positions available through Ohio State University, and I had two interviews with researchers so far and I’m still waiting to hear back from. For Serevice Engagement I make sure to volunteer on Saturday mornings when I’[m free or throughout the week when I don’t have much to do so far I have volunteered through Pay It Forward for Ohio Midwest Food Bank, and HeadsUp through the College of Medicine.


Business Professionals of America is a organization that prepares students for the world-class workforce. This organization enhances student participation in many different endeavors and gives the opportunity to receive skills essential to leading their own organization. To test students skills they have regional, state, and national competitions every year. My team and I enrolled in the Global Marketing competition and the topic given to us was “the expansion of Tiny Homes”. We had to pick a city in the United States where we wanted to set up construction and a city outside the United States to expand to. This competition required us to make a presentation, and a 10 page marketing plan.  My team and I placed first on the regional level and third on the state level. Unfortunately we didn’t place high enough to advance to the National competition in Dallas, Texas. Through this experience I was able to partake in the steps that businesses take when setting up.
