pandemic experience



Give us an example of how the pandemic has changed your involvement in the community or group most important to you?
What have you learned from this experience? (maximum 200 words)


I'll appreciate if someone help me with grammatical errors and other things

This pandemic has made me realize the importance of having family around when dealing with unexpected situations. Across the globe, we all had to go through tough times during this pandemic including myself, when I lost my grandmother earlier in July. Not only did my grandmother survive Breast Cancer in 2011, but she was on the edge of surviving stage 3 Ovarian Cancer before COVID took her life away. Knowing that the survival rate of Stage 3 cancer is low, she did not give up. Her strong willpower and determination to get better every day were truly inspirational and mind-blowing. Seeing a loved one going through this much pain and coming very close to recovering and then suddenly passing away from a virus that is out of everyone's control was very tough to discern. I learned that in life there will be certain situations beyond my control, and even after doing my best, I cannot change the outcome of these situations, but as long as I am with the right people, I will be able to face them.

The response told me more about the death of your grandmother than your involvement in a community or group that you consider important. The question asks you to consider how you have changed in terms of community participation because of Covid 19. So the essay should focus on your community activities such as volunteering at the local senior home, participation in medical missions, participation in outreach programs, and other similar activities. The idea is to show that you know how to adjust to the changing times, still being able to carry on with activities you consider important in a virtual or physically adjusted capacity. There is no sense of that in your essay because the focus was on the death of your grandmother and the effect it had on you on a personal basis. That has nothing to do with your community or group involvements.
