Please edit my response for grammar and spelling. To be honest i don't really think it's good and will set me apart from other applicants. So if you can help me make it stand out and edit it it will be great. Also if you would like you can change, reword, cross out anything. I personally feel it's repetitive and doesn't flow. Any help would be appreciated.
What does it mean to be well educated?
"What does it mean to be well educated?" is a very simple question to ask, yet very hard to justify. Being well educated depends on a lot of varying factors. Many individuals refer to their level of marks, proficiency, success and completion when answering this question but what exactly does it mean to be well educated? Does it mean a person has to be intelligent? Does it mean a person has know everything there is to know about the universe? Many people generalize being "well educated" as going to school for a long period of time. I disagree with that ideology of the mainstream culture of what defines a "well educated" individual. I believe being well educated is more than just going to school. There is much to more to it than people think. I define a well educated individual as a person who can adapt and adjust to whatever life throws their way. Also, as a person who learns to see past their mistakes and builds on their failure. As someone who has the ability to see past people's skin color, race, nationality, and ethnicity. A person who doesn't judge a book by it's cover. A person who has the ability to love themselves, other people, nature, and manages to find a balance between their own needs and the needs of others. Last but not least, a lifelong learner. In the end, what defines a "well educated" person cannot be determined by their grades, but rather by their ability to comprehend and apply the solution to the problems and challenges they are presented with in life.
