When it comes to my deepest thoughts, I always worry if I can either do it or if I’m even good enough. I have always struggled in school and had those teachers that told me that I couldn’t do it or I was succeed, but that just made me push harder and that is what motivates me. Along with that I had have students brought me down and that is what ticked me off, I had either people who thought they knew me or people who didn't even know me say horrible things.
For most of my life I was incredibly shy, introverted and had minimal self-confidence. I didn’t have many friends at school and I didn’t feel I fit in with my peers.
Who am I? Am I a shy wallflower or am I a loud boisterous character? Possibly even both? I’ll tell you who I am by using my words. As you read this essay, you'll begin to scratch the surface of my past. The past that has helped mold me into the person that I have become today, and the past that will continue to change me tomorrow.
Understanding who I am and why I am here is a really hard concept for some. Not only is it hard to express through words, but it may be hard for some to hear. Not everybody is proud of the person they have become or want to recognize who they are. But I feel as if it is really important thing to put into perspective to self evaluate yourself and to make sure you are what you want to be. I have never really thought of who I am until today, but my goal is to try to make myself understand it as much as possible through five categories. I hope years later I can understand my way of doing life today and continue loving myself through times of despair and hardships.
I think of myself as being better. Sometimes, I even think I’m the best. But my wide set of skills and my large ego has a story behind it.
This is the question that every college wants to know. But with the endless amount of applicants, distancing yourself from the crowd seems like an almost impossible feat. Throughout my years of school, academics have always been what set me apart, but at a college like Harvard, stellar grades and extracurriculars are expected. On paper, it might be difficult to distinguish me from the other 40,000 applicants. Just based on probability, there is bound to be another Japanese boy with divorced parents who lives in California. It’s easy to blend into the crowd if I described myself with these types of generalized titles and traits.
People all around you is trying to change themselves to fit in. Excepting who you are is a big leap , believe me, I took that leap. I was a girl who got persuaded and got sucked into believing that I needed to change myself to be ‘’perfect’’ .Media,
Ever since I was little I have aspired to be something great in life, a chef, a pro. soccer player, and an artist. I still hold on to those dreams in hopes they will come true. All of these dreams shape who I am today. I play soccer for “Charlotte Soccer Academy” and previously for the “Waddell Soccer Team”. Both have kept me being a team player and a stronger leader. I go to visual arts camp over the summer and try to use creativity at any moment possible. I love making cupcakes and baking which also allow me to be creative. I have finally realized that all of these dreams originated from my family. I pursued soccer, like my parents did throughout their lives. I continue drawing, like my mother and father did until it became their life and jobs. I am still love making cakes and cupcakes every weekend, just like how i've seen my grandmother make them. Life has a very strange and mind-boggling way of turning out. I know that sounds cheesy, but it is really true.
or years I have been known to be shy and even struggle to be bold, and outgoing, conversely, these qualities characterize can be viewed as an overall weakness, but my soft qualities of being shy are my strength. In fact, they helped me become a leader by connecting to those who are shy like myself, not to mention my clumsiness, which is an attribute that shows my humility and ability to laugh at my own faults and understand the struggle of being needing a helping hand. In fact, with a personality like mine, it is natural for me to feel entitled to guide my peers without the pressure of an official title, helping others is second nature.
There you are. Just standing there, looking back at your reflection through the mirror and seeing all of the negative words permanently sticking to you. Not very many people truly love who they are, and that is because of the society we live in today. No one likes to be judged all of the time for who they are or what they do. So, we end up doing anything to fit in, no matter what. Your identity is who you are and your actions, and you shouldn’t be ashamed of it, but some people are. Those people are the ones that have figured out that they won’t fit in unless they manage to change something, and unfortunately they choose to change their identity, because of stereotypes, prejudice, and self doubt.
It is important to express your selfness. In order to do that you must be comfortable with who you are and you must accept the fact that you are unlike anyone else. This isn’t a bad thing at all. Recently, I learned to embrace who I am. Before then, I was very insecure and quiet. I had to realize that I needed
Inner image of yourself may not match your outer; find awareness of total self in all situations. Get
From time to time, in your pursuit of doing what you strive to do, there will be roadblocks or obstacles getting in the way of your success. Most people simply give up at that point, stop trying with the excuse of, “it’s not worth it,” or “it’s too hard.” If I had done that and quit at the first few obstacles, I would have never been able to come to the point that I am at today. If I hadn’t had the willpower and grit to do the things that I had done, then I might have still been an amateur swimmer, have barely any friends, and not have advanced as a mathematician. Overall, overcoming your fears, trusting yourself, and having the determination to pass anything in your way will result in a great amount of eminence, success, and contentment.
Achieve, believe and succeed. These three verbs have summed up to who I am today, where I want to go, and who I will be tomorrow. Still to this day, my life has been categorized as the "all around." Instead of people asking me "what do you do?", they ask me, "what can't you do?" I believe in the fact that we are given a purpose in life, it's up to you to figure it out. That is exactly what I am determined and strong-willing going to do. I want the best for and in my life, the only way that is possible, is to earn it. I first earned part of my future by being accepted to an Early College High School, which is a school to where I earn my high school degree and my associate's degree. Out of the thousands that applied, I was chosen to be in their
My identity is defined by my passion for music and my willingness to work hard. As a child my parents always taught me that working hard is key for success so I like to try my best in everything I do. What I think defines me best as a person are my hobbies. My number one hobby is band, I have been in band for six years and it’s one of my greatest passions. I was first inspired to be in band when my older sister joined about two years prior to me entering the program. My mom really liked how band was teaching her responsibility as well as multitasking so she encouraged me and my twin to join and I can honestly say it is a decision I will never regret. Towards my highschool years I decided to take more responsibility in the program by becoming
