In order for the Committee on Admission and Aid to get to know you better, answer the question below in the form of an essay. “Are there any significant experiences you have had, or accomplishments you have realized that have helped to define you as a person? ” “l love you, Lord, my strength. ” In the course of my life, I have encountered several trials and several attainments, but despite all of those experiences; one unforgettable moment struck me the most.
The car accident happened in a Sunday evening back in February of 2011.
There was a strong hit at the right side of the back of our car which led the car to swerve to the feet, and collide on a passing Jeep. The sad thing about the incident was that the point of impact on my side was strong. I fell unconscious after my head hit the door and I didn’t know what happened next. I only felt that I was regaining consciousness when I was already in a tricycle with my dad. My vision wasn’t clear and I can feel something painful on my face; I was troubled and nervous about what was going on and what has happened.
Vie come to understand it after I woke up in a hospital lying on a bed. I was very confused why I was laid on a bed, why my mom and relatives were around me. It turned out that I was the one they were fretting over. My mom told me about the accident while she was sobbing. My mind went blank; all I can think about was, “How? Why? Is this real? ” I was transferred and referred to another hospital, then another until I had my operation. The doctors read all laboratory findings and tests and they told me that I was lucky enough that my left eye didn’t end up blind.
I was seriously hurt physically and mentally. Knowing the bills for the operation, medicines, hospital was very grieving. My parent’s had to pay thousands of pesos Just because of what happened to me. They had to drive to and from one capital to another Just for check-ups. My conscience ate me, “Aka kaki eh! Gung Hindi aka undergrad’s, wall an sang epigraph Pasadena mega angular MO at serial MO! ” I felt that I was held responsible that we were experiencing those hardships.
It wasn’t easy for me to bear that thought, and then another thought entered my mind, “Piano gung sill Mommy, Daddy, bat mongo chapatti at pins nag undergrad’s? Slang pat nag nightcap at aka okay an okay? ” I can’t even stand the thought of it ever happening. I said to myself that I was a hero for saving them; it was far okay for me to be the one who’s hurt and not them. I have come to realize and regret so many things in life that time; in the billions of people in the world, why me? Out of the many possible things that could have happened, why this?
Why was the taxi driver so reckless and so stupid? Had I not lead a virtuous and faithful life to deserve this? Why? I felt so many regrets and blame. There were so many questions and realizations that passed through my mind. It wasn’t very easy for me to bear what I have gone through. It went to the point that I questioned God why did it happen. I experienced a lot of suffering and struggle when I was still in the hospital ND recovering at home. I missed almost the 4th quarter of my 1st year high school started the 4th Quarter at a very short time.
In spite of the downfall I experienced; I clung on to the Lord and believed on myself on what the future I hold if I let it pass or let it be a chance for better progress. I believed that it was a test from God to see if I will fall down or stand up. I was sure that it was only the beginning of how life really was. “Challenges are what make life interesting and overcoming them is what makes life meaningful. ” It reflected the life Vie gone through back then. This incident made e define myself as it allowed me put myself in others’ shoes.
I saw my condition as a chance to reflect and see what was really going on. It defined me as a person in a way that I showed more importance for others than myself. My faith was more sincere and true. No matter what pint of depression, no matter what pint of loneliness you’re in, no matter how deep of trouble you are; God will always walk with you and will always be with you facing those difficulties. Guided by this vision and understanding, I was awarded a bronze medal in the Honors’ Assembly the following school year. Hoping that more of these will come and God will continue to bless and guide me.
It was a Sunday evening in February 13 of 2011 that our family experienced a car accident, and I faced a tragic event in my life. It was the most depressing and fearful episode of my life I have ever experienced. Deep thoughts entered my mind, emotions and feelings Vie never felt before. Will I take it as an obstacle in my life or take it as an opportunity? I made a decision to take it as an opportunity and use it for my never ending success in the continuous days of my life. “Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future. ” -John F. Kennedy
