Emma Cohen

Sunlake High School

Scholarship:

I have completed my AP Capstone Diploma, which means I have passed both AP Seminar and AP Research. As part of AP Research, I have conducted a study on the media's coding of sex myth. I have a taken a total of 12 AP classes, getting a score of 5 in ten of them, and getting a score of 4 in two of them. I am especially proud of my 5 in AP Chemistry, as it was a class that I struggled in. I have gotten all As in my classes since the beginning of my freshman year. I have worked incredibly hard to always challenge myself, as I believe is reflected in my academic achievements. I have also been recognized as a National Merit semifinalist and am currently waiting for the final results of this award.

Leadership:

I am the leader of several clubs in Sunlake, and each represents a facet of my love for helping others. One of my primary roles is as the Chair of the Council of Governors for the Junior State of America, a debate and activism club. This essentially means that within this student-led organization, I am the highest ranking official. In this role, I organize events with around 2,000 people to help participate in our democracy through phone banking, volunteering, and more. Furthermore, I organize conventions for hundreds of youths to debate the hottest issues of the day. I am the president and founder of the Philosophy Club, which helps create dialogues within our community about hard-pressed issues. I am the president and founder of Math Olympiad, which is a competitive math club at our school. Through this club, we have organized several events with other schools over the last three years. I am the president of Mu Alpha Theta, our math honors society, which helps provide tutoring to everyone at our school. I am also the co-president of the National History Honors society, which provides many of the same services for classes in history. I am also the co-founder and co-president of the Model United Nations club, where we enable students to learn about global politics and become engaged members of their society. Finally, for two years I have helped organize my class’s skit, including writing the script, and helping with the direction.

Service:

My service is mostly focused on changing my community for the better, which largely takes two roles: political activism and community outreach. For the former, I have participated and organized countless voter registration drives along with phone banking for nonprofit organizations trying to increase voter participation. One summer, I participated in an unpaid internship at a newspaper to help increase community involvement. I also focus a lot on making a direct impact on the community. Although I am often restrained by my time, I regularly volunteer with the local animal shelters and food pantries for underserved people. For me, it’s an opportunity to make the change I constantly talk about actually happen.
