Ã¢â¬ÅDo not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many...
Ã¢â¬Å"Do not judge me by my successes, judge me by how many times I fell down and got back up again.Ã¢â¬ Ã¢â¬â Nelson Mandela. The quote by Nelson Mandela, sums up my personality,Ã¢â a better way to say this? Explains the type of person I am? I am persistent. I do not give up, and I am determined to succeed in my academics. I have overcome a lot of struggles throughout the undergraduate years. Which lead to my falling, but over the years I picked myself back up and showed that I am able to succeed with my degree in Sociology. ***Ã¢â - how can I show this without saying I am determined to succeed.

I will be working independently on the research project for nine months, with assistance from an English faculty member. In 2009 and 2010, I fell down with my academics, struggling to get back up. My father was ill and I had take care of him throughout 2009 and 2010. Because of his illness, this led me to gain an interest in Social Work. I wanted to show myself that I was able to succeed, and determined to receive a degree in Sociology. I took interested in low SES and diversity. Leading me to understand that I wanted to contribute to society in a hands-on way instead of researching. To understand social work, I registered for a Special Education class. The special education class was helpful, I was able to understand students with disabilities. I am a Student Ambassador for the Student Disabilities on campus. I work with students who have disabilities, mentoring the students throughout the year. Ã¢â should I add the student ambassador for special education? I really do not want to start out with My father was ill. Ã¢â should I do the sandwich approach? Place the positives on bottom before this and the illness in the middle? *** I need to place the WÃ¢â¬â¢s in the middle. But! Draw attention to the other positives!*** Transition: I found my niche for helping others while working at my internships. I was an intern at Needline, which is a food pantry helping the community with a low SES
