Good character, as I see it, is important not only in my life but for everyone so that the world functions smoothly. I do not like to think of myself as perfect in any way, but when it comes down to it and who I am as a person, I believe I have very good character. How I act around and treat my peers shows this quality. When meeting someone new, I am friendly, easy to get along with, and I believe their opinion is just as valuable as my own. I am also an honest and trustworthy person. What I see as my biggest advantage in my character is that I really enjoy helping people, whether it be advice, or help with a problem that I excel at such as schoolwork or technology.

    One of the most rewarding experiences I’ve had in my eighteen years of living was becoming a mentor. Deciding to become a mentor for an elementary school was an easy decision for me, given the fact that I love kids.
