I am good enough

The first time I felt worthy

I have always believed in leading by example. I get satisfaction from helping out people whether it be aiding my brothers on a homework assignment or helping out someone in need. My willingness to train and guide others makes me feel that I'm actually making a difference in someone else's life other than mine. My strong ability to communicate both orally and in writing made me a perfect candidate as a volunteer at the Boys and Girls club. While there, I led the arts and crafts station where I was able to bring out the creative side of each child. I gave the kids one-on-one attention and was able to guide them through exploring their creative side, which built up their confidence. When I volunteered at the Boys and Girls Club the summer after my Sophomore year of high school ended, I gained valuable communication skills and felt vulnerable with every child under my care. Getting the kids to pay attention and follow directions was a somewhat difficult process, yet I still managed to get it done. Rather than spending my summer staying at home doing nothing, I spent time having fun with the kids and the other volunteers and I still hold satisfaction to this day because of what I accomplished.

Beginning in high school, I was a confused, shy and lost freshman. I did not know what my place in high school was or where I belonged. There were the math fanatics, popular cheerleaders, artsy folks, and then there was me. I was invisible to most students at my school, besides a few good friends, until I signed up for yearbook my sophomore year. This extracurricular activity changed my life. I was the nervous girl no more and finally came out of my shell. Yearbook was a place where I could actually be myself without being judged. I expressed myself through the pages I made and the year bookies became my second family. I learned the basics of graphic design as well as how to write an eye-catching article. It was not until junior year, when I was promoted from a web page designer to the Editor of Clubs and Activities, that I realized I was actually doing a good job. My promotion made me comprehend that I am not just the underdog. I can achieve great things like everyone else. The fact that I became a leader gave me even more confidence. I felt as if I had made a difference with this after school course because I created something. I hope I am able to help more people in the future by creating things that benefit them.

5 Reasons to Consider a Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side. It is meant to be their mantra, "My client is innocent until proven guilty."

Career as a Defense Lawyer

Lawyers are supposed to be unbiased. Lawyers are trained to look at both sides of an issue and give equal weight to each side.
