UBC Sauder School of Business - Personal Profile Essay - RESPONSE TO A PROBLEM /UNFAMILIAR SITUATION

EXPLAIN HOW YOU RESPONDED TO A PROBLEM AND/OR AN UNFAMILIAR SITUATION.


WHAT DID YOU DO, WHAT WAS THE OUTCOME, AND WHAT DID YOU LEARN FROM THE EXPERIENCE?


I was on the verge of giving up, extra hours, revisions, nothing was working. I had heard of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) but never realized its true gravity until 10th grade when I got to tutor a 5th grader diagnosed with it. Initially, I was unaware & assumed she either disliked studying or just me, but after stating my concern to her parents, they finally opened up about her diagnosis.

I instantly scrapped my plan of resigning & started researching ADHD, teaching tactics & its psychological aspects. Afterward, I experimented with video & audio materials, gave more breaks, minimized distractions, & constantly communicated with her to know which change was more helpful. My dedication & understanding motivated her to work harder & by mutual efforts & adjustments for about a year, we saw a major improvement in her grades.

This truly reformed my perspective as instead of avoiding sensitive & uncertain situations, now I embrace them as opportunities for growth & enlightenment. It taught me the importance of putting extra effort to help people with special needs reach their true potential. Hence, as a school prefect, I urged our counselor to arrange workshops on ADHD, Dyslexia, etc for both teachers & students. Later, as a content writer in a mental health organization, I & my team set up a campaign to voice the need for mental health counselors in school. I now know that giving up might seem easy, but easy won't take me places, challenges will.

There should be 2 outcomes and lessons learned presented based on the current information presentation. This was effectively presented for the ADHD aspect but not for the prefect activity and content writer references. If the minimum word requirement has been met by the ADHD reference then you can stop there. It checks off all the necessary info requirements and is a very strong reference point. If you need to produce more words then adjust the remaining sections to include outcomes and learning you recieved from the said activities. You could take on the angle of an ADHD crusader if you wish, with more outcomes appearing as your participation deepened. There is no limit on the outcome you produced in relation to the cause.

@Holt
Thank you soo much for your review. I sadly reached the world limit hence I couldn't reflect more on the other activities. I do plan on going into details about the prefect activity in another essay for the same uni so hopefully, that will solve the issue. Thanks again!
