As I walked in the corridors of my school one afternoon during a break after a mock Model UN conference I noticed something odd. At every step, and as I rounded every corner, I found plastic bottles and sheets of paper littered on the floor.
As the co-project manager for litter management in my school's environmental club I immediately got to work and organised events such as a successful paper collection drive, rallied for the addition of separate, dedicated recycling bins for plastic and paper, and eliminated the need for vending machines for plastic water bottles by encouraging the use of reusable bottles.
When I set my mind to something I work towards accomplishing the goal as efficiently and as well as I possibly can. I always put in a lot of effort into my responsibilities ranging from academics to my relationships with all the people I am surrounded by.
I try my best to stay optimistic even when things don't go my way, since every shortcoming is an opportunity and every failure is a stepping stone for me to grow into a well rounded human being.
