Write 5 pages with APA style on Growth and Accomplishment. Height turned to be a limiting factor once again, as for my passion for modeling. Though I could use my height as an advantage to be a part-time model in high school, I didn’t meet the height requirements to be a model when it came to the university level.
However, this couldn’t stop me from achieving my dream towards modeling, as I turned myself into a coach and a team builder. I not only successfully chased my dream but also helped others to do the same by establishing a university’s first modeling association. This personal accomplishment added much to my confidence in turning the impossible to possible.
Accomplishments have a better value when it serves towards one’s social commitment. In February 2008 my neighborhood in Tianjin saw agitations from small shop owners as the government had forcefully relocated them as a part of the Olympics project. Most of them had entered into long term contracts with their landlords and had spent ample money on restructuring the shop which was not compensated for. However, their protest was hardly leading towards any result.
In spite of joining them in the protest which lacked a direction, I decided to use my negotiation skills developed in business environments to intervene in the issue. I discussed in detail the problems of the shop keepers which were wide and vivid ranging from location to inventory. On the other side, I analyzed the government’s blueprint of the new street and time schedule for reconstruction. Resultantly I developed a compensation plan which was approved by the shop keepers as well. .
