Danielle Turk is a senior at Sugar Land Preparatory Academy and is a part of the Class of 2018. She started SLP as a 6th grader, and has since then established herself as a role model and leader to her peers.
After a grueling application process, Danielle is now reaping the rewards of her hard work. She has been accepted to 12 colleges, and is now faced with deciding where she will spend the next four years.
The 12 colleges consist of Emory, Northwestern, Northeastern, Auburn, Alabama, UCLA, University of Arizona, LSU, Fordham, Notre Dame, Emerson, and UT Austin. Danielle would like to major in Communication or Business.
At the moment, Danielle’s top choices are Northwestern, UCLA, and Notre Dame. All three universities are among the best in the country, with highly distinguished communication and business programs. She has also gained many scholarships, which are listed down below:
What is the key to her success? While her high ACT scores gave her a leg up in admissions, Danielle contributes much of her success to her strong essays and extracurricular activities. She recommends investing time in activities that align with your passions and goals, rather than merely joining a multitude of activities solely for the purpose of filling up a resume. When it comes to essays, Danielle says, it’s critical to find your distinct voice and write about something unique.
We are so proud of Danielle and cannot wait to see what she accomplishes in college!
