My school was able to give me a glimpse of the bigger picture. It showed me the world in a way that I couldn't have at any other school. We went on trips, we studied different cultures, and most of all each course we taught in way that encouraged students to see beyond the classroom. I personally benefited from my this approach, in many ways. Not only did I work hard and try new things, but my school sparked a desire in me to change the world. I had the chance to excel academically, make a science project that made it to the Intel International Science fair, and much more. I was nominated one of the 20 students who will change the world by Utah Valley Magazine. It was my school that made that possible.
