The features alsoenable the candidate to stand out among the students that he or sheis competing with. The essay below takes into account the uniquefeatures, related to academics that I would consider addressing tothe admission board to stand out among others.

TheUnique aspects

Tostart with, the diverse ethnic background is one unique aspect thathas made me a better person. I have grown and been brought up in astate that has people of different origins. The communities fromwhere I have been brought up are mixed up and even speak as manylanguages as the number of the groups. The fact that I have grown upin such areas has made me a person who can easily understand peopleand accommodate them in my locality. As a student, this has enabledme to uphold the high respect for my fellow student as well as theteachers irrespective of the background. This trait will go a longway in assisting me to live in harmony with the various students thatI will meet in college. Respecting other people around me will makethe learning process smooth for old age shows.

Mybackground has also been one that has revolved around drug addictionbut later triumphs against the menace. Being brought up in acommunity that has a high rate of substance abuse has gotten methrough an extensive learning process. Most of the parents that Ihave had an encounter with are ones who have abused drugs. Thisprompted me to get into the drugs. However, the continuous efforts toavoid being affected by the drugs and completing the high schoollevel have made me stronger. I can now withhold any temptation oftaking drugs since I had a practical experience of how drugs can harmone’s life. The struggle to avoid drugs is a unique aspect thathails in me. It is hence hard for me to give in to peer-pressure thatcomes from other students. I hence stand in a better position livingamong many peers who can easily influence one into drugs. A drug-freelife will best suit the academic life that am just about to start.

Havinghad an experience in the computer industry has also improved mycapacity. I have had to work in a challenging environment where thework pressure was a factor not to ignore. Working with time limitshas had a great impact on improving the skills in the computerindustry. The experience gotten differs from one institution toanother. As much as the application would come in to improve mycareer life, I have a lot that I will in turn offer to theinstitution. Having a background experience in the computer fieldwill enable me in assisting the fellow students that have a lesserexperience. This amounts to value addition in that I will not onlybenefit from the computer programs, but other will have a chance tolearn from me.

Asa writer, I have had great experience in the field. I have been inthe writing industry for a while and have had to do variousassignments in my academic life. Besides class work, I have had to dovarious writings in general field. This has included providingassistance to other students in solving their home assignments. Beinga routine, the writing experience has remained with me and hascontinued to become better. The experience I have had in writing willassist me in a big way in being able to solve the assignments in thecorrect formats and ability to follow the instructions. Having hadthe experience of helping other students in handling the tasks islikely to enable me to have the same spirit to extend a lending hand.

Havingbeen a student leader in the students’ council, this opened up mymind to the various challenges that the students experience. Havingbeen present in different forums trying to solve students problemsbuilt in me a personality that would always like to see challengesaddressed. The student council offered a great opportunity ofdetermining the best as well as the worst decision-making procedures.The student-teacher relationship was under a test being a studentleader. I had to solve the students’ complaints and at the sametime obey the school rules and regulations. This inspired me to seethe challenges of the students settled in the best and most amicableway. I developed the spirit of upholding the law requirements insolving the challenges that came up in a peaceful, respectful andmature manner.

Ihave an auntie that attended the college that am applying for. Thisauntie has always bragged about the institution and how she gained alot from the same. Her being my mentor, I yearn so much to attainwhat she has attained by attending the school. I have hence loved theinstitution way long since I was a small child. This will enable meto have all the loyalty towards the school and the stakeholders. Thiswill make the learning smooth as a positive attitude translates tothe right results.
