I position myself to be a real scholar when I earn the title as a Baruch Scholar. Being a real scholar means a lot in my mind. First is to maintain and improve the GPA, as suggested in the program policy, that the base is academic success. Of course I should study as best as I can to gain respect as a scholar. SAT, Regents and other glorious high school records lay in the past. I look in the future as a college student, see all the obstacles I can possibly imagine and fight my way through. Persistence and consistency are essential to be a real Scholar. Second is to develop my moral concepts and basically be a good person. My parents always tell me that the most important thing college is going to teach me is not solid knowledge, but how to fit myself in the society better. As a real scholar I should be charming, patient and able to handle all my highs and lows. Third is to give back to our society. Reputation comes with great responsibilities. The whole society is looking upon us. Being a real scholar I should also be a pioneer and leader in community services. I have attended several walkathons and participated in fund raising activities. And I had a wonderful time teaching new immigrant children. It’s so great staying in a community like that where we all care about one another. I feel like by doing community services I can finally contribute my own strength to make the society better, which is above all the stuffs I learn in school, and really see the progress and results. Given all the opportunities as a Baruch Scholar, I shall stick with my three main goals and work the best out of it.
