In this brief essay share what it is you care about, why you care, and what you have done towards helping with this issue. If this is a new idea to you, what do you think you might care about in the future and what might you do to help out.
the “something” you care about has to be a national or international issue. Examples would be things like poverty, homelessness, war, HIV/AIDS, veterans, elderly, child abuse, immigrants, cancer, prisoners, environmental sustainability, gender equity, etc.
It must be an issue beyond yourself or immediate family (I really care about getting good grades, a good job, achieving my athletic goals, finding a decent boy/girl friend, getting in the fraternity sorority, honors society, I really care about my grandmother, etc.)(I lam Chinese)
If you have come to care about an issue through personal experience (your grandmother has cancer, your sister was a victim of domestic violence, you were a victim of child abuse etc.) and that concern has lead you to become involved with others beyond yourself or your family member that would qualify for this assignment. (My father has diabetes could use as example)
