Personal Statement : My Heart Without Losing Myself

- “You have to take care of yourself before you can help others.” Or at least that is what I have always heard. Growing up, I came to be thought of as trusting but almost gullible, forgiving but almost naïve, generous but almost foolish. My family praised but also chastised my charitable nature but I could not help myself. I played the role of the kid who would share his toys, helped my classmates with their homework, and cheered up the stranger who looked a little sad on the playground.
