Essay Questions

What is your most memorable childhood experience?Some of my more memorable childhood experiences are big family parties around the holidays or for my birthday. We always got together with both sides of my family on Christmas and it was always one of my favorite times of the year. Family is very important to me and the big family gatherings around holidays every year are times I remember very fondly.
What immediate family member do you closely identify with and why?I feel I identify most with my younger brother. We have similar interests and are closest in age to each other and get along very well. We also would hang out with the same friends for years growing up and that made our friendship stronger.
What character traits do you admire in an individual?I most admire honesty, loyalty and compassion in individuals. I believe you need to have these three traits to have heathy relationships with other people. It is hard to relate and get along with others if they are dishonest, don't have your back or don't care for other people.
What is the funniest thing ever to happen to you?It is hard to pick out the funniest thing to ever happen to me to be honest. I can't really think of one thing off of the top of my head but I know I have had many times in my life that something so funny has happened that I have cried laughing. There really is no better feeling than laughing so hard that you cry.
If time and money were not an issue, where would you travel and why?I would travel to a tropical island somewhere. I think either Hawaii or a Caribbean Island would be two places I would like to go. There is something very peaceful and relaxing about being at the beach near the ocean and that is my favorite place to unwind and relax.
When and if you ever have children, what would you like to pass on to them?I just had my first child. What I would like to pass on to them is just my experiences and what I've learned from my mistakes. Along with that, I just want to teach them to be kind to others and how to be a good person because there are not enough good people in the world.
