When you ask me how I brought my positive energy into the community, I’ll tell you that I planted a tree.
I have lived in the League City area all my life. Growing up, I rode down the streets of old League City which were lined with beautiful, full-grown, live oak trees. In the entry of my house, a picture hangs of me and my parents when I was just a little girl. The picture features the three of us holding hands and smiling in old League City under the majestic oak trees. This is my favorite picture as it reminds me of the girl I once was and allows me to think of who I have become and what I may become.
But last winter, a freeze hit the city caused many of the live oaks to die. I wanted to help put them all back. This past summer, I teamed up with other students to work on a service project together. Our group decided to plant trees to beautify the city just as it was before.
Working with the League City Historical Society, local nurseries, and garden centers, we were able to put our vision in place. With a little persuasion and some hard work, we planted trees in empty yards of historical homes in League City. We then registered the trees with the League City Historical Society, dedicating them to citizens that have served our community. Future generations will be energized by the natural beauty and shade of the oaks we planted.
There is something about planting a tree that helps you reflect on the future. It energizes me to think these trees are a little like me. They are small but full of potential. With some care and favorable conditions, they will flourish into grand oaks that will beautify the environment for generations to come. As a young woman pursuing an education in Civil Engineering, I see myself in those trees.
Just like the trees, I am a full of opportunity, able to learn and grow, and have the potential to beautify and energize my environment. My plan is to pursue a career in a field dominated with people unlike me. I hope to plant my own seeds. I hope to make positive changes within the field, changes that will be appreciated by others. And I hope to leave a legacy that may even be able to influence a future generation.
