When asked to describe me, most of those close to me would immediately think of the word responsible; this personality trait is among my most defining characteristics. I exhibit responsibility in regard to my peers and others around me, ensuring that I always keep any promises that I make and come through for those who need my services.

Personal Essay

Contributing to my responsible nature is my ability to wisely manage my time and balance numerous tasks including two part-time jobs, extracurricular activities, advanced placement school classes, and family obligations; in this regard, engaging in my high school's co-op program has encouraged me to develop a sense of responsibility. Lastly, my ability to prioritize allows me to behave responsibly: for example, when facing the options of studying for a test and attending a concert, though I may wish to partake in the fun activity, I would almost always choose instead to do the responsible thing.

In addition to being responsible, I am very ambitious. Because I grew up having to go without, I have decided to dedicate myself to ensuring that neither I nor my family members are forced to live in such a manner ever again. To achieve this goal, I realize that I must stay focused on academic success, which will eventually turn into professional and financial achievement. At this point in my life, my self-evaluation centers almost completely on my timely completion of tasks I have set for myself which will help me to meet my personal goals. Though there a number of others, the last adjective with which I will describe myself is passionate. I believe that everything I do is important, and should be treated as such; all tasks must be given the most attention and concentration. In this manner, all results will be of the highest quality. In addition to any of my working tasks, I carry this sense of passion to my relationships with others, as I find that submersing yourself completely in a given situation yields the greatest results. In this manner and with these qualities, I feel assured that I will use the college education provided to me by in part by the Willbern Heritage Scholarship Foundation to succeed in both the academic and professional fields.
