I am very proud of creating a charity organization (Help4). This charity organization makes me feel especially proud because it is such a magnificent organization that was initiated back when I only was in grade nine. This organization started as a local school project with a limited aim and goal. It then developed to become a well-known organization with the aim of reaching out to Asia, especially to third world countries with health, educational and social issues. Adding to that, I am very proud that a junior is going to take over the organization presidency when I graduate; the organization created a legacy in our school passing on from a school generation to another.

My unique identity is without a doubt a combination between all my communities I lived in, however the community of my boarding school is defiantly by far the most important community that had the most influence on my character; I am not any ordinary member there but a leader leading the entire student body. Therefore, I spent most of my time during the week interacting with almost every school member from all age groups. My school's community is especially important to me not only because it influenced my thinking and values, but because it is the community I grew up in as a teenager; a community that taught me how to live independently and take care of myself. The school's community shaped me to become an open-minded leader ready for the standards of this century; not only in my region but, due to its multinational nature, with all different cultures and backgrounds. Needless to say, this community also made me realize and appreciate the importance of education and family.

- What are the unique qualities of Northwestern - and of the specific undergraduate school to which you are applying - that make you want to attend the University? In what ways do you hope to take advantage of the qualities you have identified?

It all started when I visited the Northeastern campus in January 2012 during a university tour around the state of Massachusetts with the Harvard Model United Nations trip. Northeastern was the first university to visit during the tour and I was amazed of Northeastern's qualities that opened my eyes to the option of studying at such a great, top-ranked university. During my visit the tour and the information session were extraordinary; it was in such a way where I explored the unique qualities of Northeastern without actually being directly told. First, the huge beautiful campus located in the heart of Boston itself is one of the qualities of Northeastern that makes the University unique from others, with the T running in the middle of the campus giving students the opportunity of not only living within the campus but exploring the beautiful city of Boston minutes from the University. Academically, Northeastern offers a variety of programs giving its students a wide range of options in which they are challenged enough yet without being intimated. The student body is a pretty diverse population, creating a cultural exchange environment both in and out of class with students who are welcoming, funny, energetic and smart. Needles to mention, the astonishing program for alumni students makes the university a place connecting world leaders worldwide. The entertainments and sports programs offered at Northeastern University and the student's imaginations with recreating the rules of games and sports is also an exclusive quality only found in Northeastern. Last but not least, Northeastern's administration and staff share a friendly however professional relationships with the students making the students feel more like home. During my visit, I was also introduced to the six schools of Northeastern University with each school not only having the exceptional qualities of Northeastern but unique qualities of its own. The most quality that attracted me from the School of Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences was the very close relationship between advisors and students in the advisor program. The graduate school also offers small classes with a wide range of choices with author professors who wrote books on their subjects, making the learning experience in the school beyond the expected learning the theoretical then practical and moving back to the theoretical aspect of the topics. Finally, the university in general unlike other universities produces people who are not behind money and states but with one main goal in life to learn, educate and serve humanity. If I joined such a great inimitable university with endless qualities, I will make sure to use the qualities earned throughout my life and not only in the field I am working in. During my studying period these qualities will develop my character and prepare me to be a leader ready for the demands of the twenty first century.

Help to help you hhahaha..your second essay is good but you did not mention Qatar ...do it and explain a little more on environment in boarding school which you have explained in the other essay as very diverse. Otherwise second essay is impressive. Third essay: you have written about the N.W and undergrad school, I would suggest highlight more on your undergrad school's ( School of Weinberg College of Arts and Sciences )distinctive qualities (which you do but towards the end) its good that you have mentioned HMUN. Good luck!
