Now with 100% more Stay At Home™!
- Dec 30, 2017
I have quite a few "normal" entries already, but I want to take some of the smaller volunteering roles and combine them into one activity ("Various Volunteering" or something), and then make it one of my most meaningful. I would like to talk about how community service is meaningful to me and how have I honed my teamwork, empathy, and diplomacy skills. I would also like to have this opportunity to elaborate on my role as a homemaker-cum-community volunteer, as I feel the stay-at-home-mom part of my story isn't really told in my PS, which is much more formulaic this year (which reads thusly: I want to be a doctor because x, y, and z, and here are three paragraphs detailing my clinical, academic, and altruistic volunteering experiences, etc etc) (I tried telling a more organic story last year but I'm not sure it had the effect I intended, so instead I'd like to be evaluated on merit and not my nontraditional-ness). Any thoughts?
