(maximum 250 words)
I am most proud of the fact that I was able to lead a life that was both well-balanced and fulfilling. I pride myself on having followed through with the plan that was put in place years ago in my wanting to become a student at UBC. My driven nature has allowed me to pursue an array of various activities, ranging from teaching and playing several musical instruments, to lending a helping hand in the community. Throughout my life, I have often found myself in situations that require me to grow as an individual to achieve my goals. However, I was not always the type of person who sets their foot out into unknown waters, but rather was more comfortable in the safety of my own shell. My family and others around me described me as smart and persistent, but hesitant to venture out of my comfort zone. With much encouragement, as high school moved on I found myself taking more chances and being more driven to achieve what I set out to accomplish. I am extremely grateful to those around me for guiding me to where I am today. Looking back, my motivation to achieve the goals that I set for myself allowed me to interact with the community and do things I thought I could never do, and I am confident this will never change.
Any type of feedback would be great!!
