Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences in the space below (150 words or fewer, 1000 character maximum)

"Miss An...I made a bracelet for you..." An uncertain smile wavered on Ben's tiny face. "Thank you honey!" As he ran away to play, I thought, "I love Story Time."

I was recently honored with a request to be the new face of Story Time, the biggest event in the library, due to my outstanding interactions with the children, of which many have special needs like autism. As I read to the children and assist with crafts I am proud to bring joy and knowledge to their lives.

Every time I offer few hours in the library, I am assisting in the creation of a better world one child at a time. With every story I tell, every smile I see, every bracelet I receive, I am a better, happier, more fulfilled person than before. Children are the future and I a proud to be a part of that future.

This is great. As I try to think of suggestions to make, I find little room for improvement. One idea might be to "extend the implications" of this so that they indicate your longer-term purpose. Right now it is a great little piece of writing about the great work you do and award you contributed, but you can add a sentence at the end to suggest something about your careers of interest or your goals for the future. That would make it so that the whole anecdote is evidence of a larger process as you do the things you will do in this life.
