The NCVPS Super Student Award is for students who have gone above and beyond the course requirements and as a result have enriched the content, class dynamic, their own learning, their classmates’ learning, and even their teacher’s learning.
“Next year, I would like to take courses that will go towards my associate’s degree, so I will be ahead two years going into college. In the future, I plan on majoring in biology/biological sciences. From there, I want to enter medical school and wish to become an anesthesiologist. This has been my lifelong career choice, and I want to pursue this career because I believe this will truly make me happy.” –Hanan
“Hanan is a hard working student. She is always on time in my coaching session, very respectful, and she loves learning Arabic.” –Georges Marayati, NCVPS Arabic 1 Instructor
My overall experience with NCVPS has been great. I have taken five courses with North Carolina Virtual Public Schools, and I am really satisfied with the results I have received. My teachers have cooperated with me when I wasn’t able to complete my assignments on time due to an incident.
Advice to Online Students
My number one advice for other online students is that it is very important to keep a schedule or calendar with your due dates, that way you won’t fall behind. Also, always keep in touch with your teacher and keep them updated with everything, so you will be successful in the class.
I spend most of my time on Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube. I usually spend time on Instagram for any photography inspirations and to communicate with friends. I use Snapchat to talk to my friends and spread my photos to my friends and family. YouTube is somewhere I can go to watch videos to get my mind off of school and for educational purposes as well.
Gadgets and Things
My favorite gadget is my camera. I like taking photos and capturing the moments that pass by. Photography helps me learn more about myself and others that surround me as well as the environment around me.
One of my goals this semester was to end the year on a good note, with no regrets and a clear mindset for next school year. This has been especially hard since being a student-athlete, taking college courses, and volunteering.
I am really interested in learning about new cultures and hope to travel to the different countries to experience the different cultures in the world.
My favorite book is To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. I prefer printed books because I believe ebooks take the essence and meaning behind books, since we are in a technologically advanced society.
I don’t exactly have a favorite song or musician, but I really like listening to kpop, rap/hip hop, and r&b.
Favorite TV Show
My favorite TV show is Hawaii Five-0. I really like crime shows and this particular show has captured my attention for awhile.
I have traveled to Egypt, Germany, Canada, and other states in America. I wish to visit other countries and states in the near future.
