I am working on completing a college application, but I am not very good at writing about myself. Any help would b really appreciated! The question is as follows:
Tell us about who you are.
How would your family, friends, and/or members of your community describe you? If possible, please include something about yourself that you are most proud of and why. (maximum 250 words)
People who know me would describe me as caring, passionate, responsible, and driven.
I am one of four assistant captains on my hockey team. Captains on our team are elected by the members of the team, rather than the coach. I believe that my teammates voted for me because of my responsibility and organization - my coach often refers to me as the "team mom". This year my hockey team consists of a lot of young players, so I have had to step up and make sure that everyone is acting responsibly, and help the girls learn to be more independent.
Throughout high school I've worked hard to juggle hockey, homework, friends, family, volunteer work, rugby, and a job. This often meant doing homework in the car on the way to rugby or hockey, communicating with my employer every few days to make sure I got shifts that worked for me, and sacrificing time with my family and friends to do school work or pick up a shift. I have gained excellent time management skills because of this.
Those who know me would likely say my top personality traits are my empathy and compassion. These are demonstrated in my volunteer work as well as my career plan; because I would like to get a job where I can help others.
I am proud that I have been able to keep up with so many activities, and I am especially proud that I am a valued volunteer at the veterinary hospital.
