Different people have different portrayals of a person's personality based on their experiences.
For instance, my parents would describe me as independent and a critical thinker. As a child, my mom would always tell me to "look at the big picture" and to "approach problems from different angles". Growing up, I have always been able to analyze obstacles that I am faced with solve them on my own. Though I value other people's input, I have the capabilities to handle my own problems without relying on others.
Furthermore, when I asked my best friend to describe me, she said that I was a thoughtful and caring person; I always go above and beyond in everything that I do and my efforts are evident. I have a big heart as I'm always there for my friends for support and I go out of my way to check up on them or make sure that everyone feels included.
Having good time management is something I'm proud of. Academics aside, much of my time was devoted to extracurriculars, sports, tutor classes, volunteering and my daily dog-walking responsibilities. Juggling everything at once can be overwhelming and this caused me to be stressed and have panic attacks out of anxiety. Work kept piling up and I was at a breaking point and on the verge of crashing like a car pushed to the tip of a cliff. However, I was able to overcome this by remaining calm and focusing on everything one at a time.
