Elijah Song
Stanford UniversityChampaign, IL
I make a positive impact on the world by helping educate others; I believe that being educated, and the purpose of education, is ultimately to educate others. I feel that we have a collective responsibility to contribute to the knowledge established by those that came before us, whether through teaching others or through research. Knowledge is not something only to be gained, but to be given and shared. Since I’ve always wanted to share my love of learning, I founded AP Connection, a club where students can learn about AP exams from older students. I created an online resource center with syllabi, textbooks, and other tips and tricks that helped me along the way. Part of the motivation behind AP Connection was my experience self-studying for my first AP exam AP Biology (my school does not offer AP classes). I wondered, which book should I use? How and what should I study? Surely, I wasn’t the only one thinking these things; I joined a group of friends to study for the exam together. I appreciated that when we studied together, we shared insights. When one of us didn’t understand a specific concept, someone else explained it. Together, we educated each other. Ultimately, I hope one day to be a professor, and I hope to be judged by how many scholars I produce and how many students I inspire.
