Holt its absolutely not a problem!
So for the "write about a time when you majored in unafraid" what do you think about this one
After several visits to different oral surgeons, I was informed that I needed an immediate surgery because of a tumor in my jaw. Anxiety instantly took over me.
Lying on the foreign bed on the day of my oral surgery, I feared anything that would come after: the potential risks, my appearance afterwards, the recovery period. It was eight-fifty four, six minutes before the surgery. The doctor prepared his materials, the nurses rushed quickly to begin the process and my dad was sent out the door. This is it, I thought.
But in that four minutes before the surgery, I thought about the last ten months. About how I had gone to several doctors with my dad and was informed of the big risks. As I sat there I realized something: yes, anything could happen. In the midst of my fear, I realized I was granted a hard, but unique experience to deal with. This surgery was an opportunity for me to face my fears and stay strong at a young age. My thoughts raced each other and then it all went blank.
My right eye opened up first. "Did the surgery start yet?" I asked the doctor. "It's finished," he said smiling. "You were very brave, young lady." I touched my numb cheek and positioned myself to stand up. None of the risks had been a problem and I felt healthy and strong. I knew then that I had majored in unafraid.
And this one is my Why Barnard supplement..
Coming from a cultural background that limits the role of women in society and as a feminist at heart, I have always wanted to break past cultural barriers. Barnard would be a perfect fit for me to make a difference for women not just in my culture but also globally. The education I will receive at Barnard will help empower me to become a leader in my community and inspire other women to succeed in their respective fields.
Despite society's attitude toward women in STEM fields, I intend on majoring in Mathematics and Computer Science, which are both male-dominated. When I first joined AP Computer Science I was the only girl in my class. However, one of my friends was inspired by me and so she also joined the class. At Barnard, I would like to continue to serve as an inspiration to women and serve as a mentor in the Barnard CS and Math help rooms.
As a Youth member of the Peace Islands Institute, I was exposed to many dialogue programs where people listened to each others viewpoints on issues. There I helped International students through their English classes. By working with and listening to activists at the BCRW, I would like to continue my involvement with such organizations, help the unprivileged, and come up with different ways of thinking to current issues. Barnard is the only school that will help to me grow into a confident woman but also help me to leave a trail for others to follow.
