I would greatly appreciate any feedback on my essay. Thanks!
What qualities or unique characteristics do you possess that would allow you to contribute to the UCF community?
"Success is a ladder that cannot be climbed with your hands in your pockets." I stumbled upon this saying from an American Proverb one day and knew that it fit me perfectly.
My unique characteristics that allow myself to stand out from the crowd are diligence and determination. Most people jump straight into their project without really thinking about the job thoroughly. I, on the other hand, tend to take a step back to establish the best way to start and accomplish the task at hand. I do not like to do a job poorly and I will do whatever it takes to get it done the right way, the first time. Determination has always been a quality that I have possessed. Whether it was getting the cookies out of the cookie jar when I was four years old or being the first person in my family to graduate college. For instance, when I graduated high school I told myself that no matter what I was going to do my best in college and receive both my Associate and Bachelor Degrees. So far, I have worked diligently to earn my grades and will be graduating with my Associates degree in two months. I am hoping to get the chance to apply and share my unique characteristics with numerous campus activities, students, and faculty members at the University of Central Florida.
Every job or obstacle that I have had to overcome or accomplish clearly shows my perseverance and dedication. Everyday I use my diligence and determination to climb another rung on my ladder.
