Let your passion shine through... Volunteering is a major part of my life. Through the several events that I have had the privilege of partaking in, I have been able to do many things for the betterment of my own self and the greater community. By volunteering my time and skills, I am able to let my own light shine and inspire others to realize that service to community brings back infinite rewards.

What NOT to Write Because for me, its not about loving your job everyday of your life, instead its all about the job security. I would rather have a job that I know I will have for a long time rather than one I love, but may not have it the next day. Once I get a job, I will slowly try to make my way up the corporate ladder as much as I can, before

retiring at an optimistically early age (maybe 50?). Myth4. There are so many students applying, Ill never get one! Realize Your Potential! 1. Research 2. Apply often Bonus tips.
