For the past 8 months, I have simply been a set of numbers on an application;
4.1 Weighted GPA
3.9 Unweighted GPA
ACT Score: 31
SAT Score: 1630
Class Rank: 81 out of 403
18 years of age
90 hours of community service
62 college credit hours
But I am not these numbers:
I am a human being,
With feelings and a personality
And an all too familiar sense of being lost in a sea of numbers
These numbers do not represent who I am;
Merely what I have done.
You cannot put a value to me,
Based on the numbers that somehow determine my future in this life.
I am more than the sum of these numbers:
I DEFINE WHAT THESE NUMBERS ARE BASED ON MY ACTIONS.
So when you judge me,
Don't just judge me based on these numbers.
Judge me on the amount of
That I have put forth for these numbers.
Because these numbers DO NOT DEFINE ME.
Rather, I DEFINE THESE NUMBERS
