Katelyn Cherry
Mt. Sac Early College Academy At West CovinaGlendora, CA
The best skill I possess is perseverance, especially in some of the most challenging times in my life. I have used my determination to succeed throughout my struggles, not allowing the obstacles I have faced to stop me from achieving my goals. Perseverance helps define who I am, and as I face life, I use it every step of the way to overcome challenges. For instance, when I was recovering from an eating disorder, I used my perseverance to continue, even when I wanted to give up. I often wanted to fall back, but my determination to recover stopped me from relapsing. Ultimately, this perseverance allowed me to continue working on myself and my academics, creating who I am today. Not only have I used perseverance in my past, but I also continue to improve it in every facet of my life. Even in my shortcomings and my struggles with my mental health, I face life with the dedication to succeed and perseverance to not let life throw me down. Currently, I am struggling with anxiety, but through my worry, I am improving my persistence to find coping skills and talk back to my fear. My perseverance leads me to become who I am today, helping shape the person I want to become and follow my future goals. Without it, I would not be where I am or who I am; It is my greatest strength and most vital skill.
