DOS for troubleshooting?

"the Powerpoint, I movie". Lose the "the", and it's "iMovie".

"the motherboard" - saying stuff like that makes you sound like Borat.

TBH there's not a lot there that others can't do, and it's poorly written. You need to give a full reference of what you're like as a person, give a full academic history, and don't mention the Mary Jane

Looks alright, except I wouldn't have posted your address and phone number on a public forum.

Agreed, its craziness printing all your personal information on the web, identity fraud, all that information can be used, by the less scrupled...

Would recommend a mod remove the data concerned ASAP

I would also put past events that support what you are saying about you worth ethic, or what you strive for.

Work Ethics:
* I will do almost anything to help my fellow peers. [fellow peers is also redundant. they wouldnt be your peers if they weren't fellow. maybe fellow coworkers or just peers.. although with just peers you might run into the problem of you are only 17 so they really arent your peers.]
* I ensure that I will act in a professional attitude at all times. [attitude to manner maybe? it's your choice. and perhaps change act to conduct myself]
* I vow that I will avoid conflict at all costs. [can you really promise that? conflicts happen. what if you said you will keep your composure in said conflicts...]

Yeah. Boy Scouts, etc...you used to mow lawns, I don't know.

Also, either give them the phone number to some references, or get a letter of recommendation from someone. That always looks good.
