Instructions : What qualities or unique characteristics do you possess that would allow you to contribute to the University community?
I don't really have any "unique" characteristics--maybe you can think something up. Since I am majoring in nursing it is important that you include that I am kind and friendly to other people. I volunteered at a day care center for three years and volunteered at a hospital for a few months this year. I'm sure you can figure a way to show how these characteristics would help me contribute to the university. You can also make up a few qualities as long as they aren't like special talents that I need to prove I can do. Just make sure this is college level work and is appropriate for an admissions essay.
Coming to a new group of people is always a little scary, and most would fear a transfer to a place where they have few if any acquaintances, but I am confident of my ability to blend in with the campus community and make a valuable contribution. Speaking of my personal qualities, I believe that my greatest asset is my communication skills that help me to speak common language with people of most diverse backgrounds. I do hate inequality and prejudice and am ready to stand up for any person if I find that others are treating this individual with bias because of race, origin or other qualities related to background that a person has inherited at birth and cannot change. This determination to be fair to all usually wins me a lot of friends and, I hope, relying on my past experience, makes the group of people including me a safer place in terms of being free from prejudice and premature judgments. It is also true that I can organise people into groups of friends by suggesting different leisure-time activities like little outings that provide an incentive for people to get together and be nice to each other. In my view, the ability to hold a group together is a talent in itself as it strengthens social ties between people and can contribute to cohesion and friendliness on campus.
