Title: The Proof of Success

I owe much of my confidence and belief in my abilities to sports such as soccer, tennis, and basketball. Challenging myself athletically - as well as calisthenically - when at the beginning of one summer I could only do 4 pull-ups and by the end of that summer through consistent progress I ended up maxing out at 18 pull-ups, proved a great feat of goal setting for me.

For me it always comes down to goal setting. Setting goals is what dictates progress, and my progressive improvement reinforces the possibility for turning the ideal into real. I have witnessed many not try because they do not know how to set themselves up for the small feats of success which later lead to success on a larger scale. As a result they are left with fearing failure (much more than their desirable feeling for accomplishment) based on their lack of confidence in believing that they can accomplish whatever it is they wish.

The value of feeling accomplished, it’s the greatest feeling in the world. It’s the quintessential victory for the self - of knowing thyself. So a small victory here and there led to grander victories over time, and this too was the case for basketball whereupon I would consistently train myself not to leave the court until I met the goal of making 5 three-pointers in a row from the perimeter followed by 10 free-throws in a row from the foul-shot line. No matter how far-fetched my ability to accomplish that specific objective felt at each moment in time, it taught me that always in the end - all it ever takes is perseverance. I would always concentrate my mind to end up accomplishing the task - a challenge that felt so doable and at times so far fetched.

The longer it took me to succeed, the greater the success felt. And whence I finally did succeed - I would always be reminded that that’s all it takes – is some Heart and continual persistence until IT FINALLY MANIFESTS ITSELF. And sometimes these goals manifested themselves - I’m not sure how; it felt outside of myself. Because the feeling of my beingness felt the exact same 1 minute ago, when I had just failed, and yet I just one more time - and one more time - and another time - and again - at once the tide of success was bestowed upon me and my goals came to manifestation. This too was the case with juggling a soccer ball, whereupon I commit myself to accomplish 50 in a row, entrapping myself on the field/blacktop until my ability to accomplish the task opens the gates for me to leave as an achiever.

To leave with your last moment being an accomplishment - whether that means a swish on the court or a beautiful backhand struck across the wall - it has a psychological effect whereupon you have solidified yourself from that moment onward as accomplished. Subconsciously this has an unseen effect of “I know I can”. And oft times that’s all it takes - is some confidence; that can be the difference between why one person reaches ultimate success in life and another doesn’t. Through trial and error, chance and persistence, confidence is bestowed. And even though I am not yet a success in what I deem as ultimate "life success” - just like these consistent exercises of hard-work and perseverance, I realize that if I keep steadfast toward my objectives - I can accomplish the grand portrait of success I pixelate in my mind.

Title: The Spring of Individuality

Focus upon self prompts awareness. Unity comes from the acceptance of every single expression. Where respect is earned through the acceptance of differences, tolerance persists, conflicts are resolved, rights are respected, and voices are heard; originality reigns supreme, and authenticity prevails through contribution. Peace is the understanding of one's self among others. Who is comfortable with the totality of themselves, rests with peace. Conformity diminishes tolerance by its lack of awareness. Where self-awareness lacks, destructive acts persist unto those hearkened with fear. Intolerance and lack of acceptance to the natural evolution of conditions limits one's perceptions of truths, eliciting resentment. Truth defines self-awareness, thus intelligence and growth. A rigid mind is an extreme and a complementary at best. Grace serves as an ultimate blueprint encapsulating singular existence.

The weakness of the social construct is found in the enforcement of conformity. Conformity rewards behavior in accordance to socially accepted standards, thereby undermining the limitless expression of individuality and the transcendence of self, and thus the community at large. Destructive non-conformity elicits criminality, as may destructive conformity. Constructive conformity imparts invariably. Constructive non-conformity elicits Heroism. Non-conformity amid the social construct prompts the arrival of a vanguard. The visionary channeling spiritual spontaneity without limitation, and existentially so, defines the eccentric, whether mad or genius. The existential paradigm of an eccentric moves beyond the cast of the social construct. The impact of the eccentric's individuality is capable of bringing unity to a society much more than conformity amidst the social construct is capable of administering in the truest of senses. 

Non-traditional realms of thought, such as that of an eccentric, are unwelcomed in the paradigmatic-arena of indoctrination. For the commoner, academia is well and good. For the gifted and inspired, academia may very well threaten utmost potential. Knowledge of self educates, albeit formal education does not equate to knowledge of self. The social construct's infrastructure thrives upon the programming of beliefs unto those within the construct. When those within find themselves bounded, actions may induce destructive consequences rather than constructive deeds. Such articulation of power, or lack thereof, beseeches societal responsibility for progress, entitling the corruption of citizens and thus society, and cyclically so.

Hope as a facade of security cultivates from the shadow of doubt. Hope envisioned and proactively-articulated exemplifies activation for progress. Where men follow suit, hope may activate the eccentric. It is the untraveled road that challenges the self en route heights of certainty. The sympathy vulnerability extracts from superiority deems the gracefulness of God. True power has been stripped by conformity and replaced with self-debased love. The love society projects unto the conformist stems from lack, thereby reinforcing a paradigm of limitation mongered directly and indirectly by the social construct. Unto such depths, what is hope but a spiritual death unto self reconciling the spirit from existential hell. Despite what resistance one encounters through regulation of conformity, justification for perpetration serves as the by-product of the immature self in wont of over-soul appraisal amidst society's conditioning.

To grant one the liberty to live a life deemed worthy of living begs the question of whether one wants what they really say they want. What folks turn against society and kill as opposed to leaders who organize to lead and end up getting killed? The personal fault and responsibility the eccentric hearkens unto himself is the same paradigm the social construct victimizes, profits from, and regenerates. The social construct views the un-awarded eccentric as a degenerate. The eccentric views the social construct as debased. The eccentric's desire to transcend the construct empowers him beyond the social construct albeit leading to his disenfranchisement among the populace oft-times. The eccentric's inability to conform to the social construct supports the pillars of the infrastructure in so long as the eccentric lacks transcendental influence.

Title: Global Citizen (My study abroad experiences)

Native to California but raised in Hong Kong from the age of 3 to 11, I spent three summers studying abroad in England before starting high school in America in order to perfect my English. Since then, my experiences studying abroad in Costa Rica, France, and Greece have allowed me to expand my language capabilities and build a knowledge base centered on the subtleties of conducting business on an international scale.

My study abroad experiences contributed a lot to my personalities. They make me who I am today because I have learned the importance of globalization. In order to be a good business leader, one must understand the differences of different cultures and have a sense of cultural sensitivity. (please make this sound good).

Studying abroad in Costa Rica was the first time I have ever been in a third world country. Growing up in urban areas, I have never experienced what it was like to walk on mud (elaborate). This experience made me appreciate what I have and eventually want to help people who aren’t priviledged.

I studied abroad in Greece in 2013 with the College of Business. We explored the causes behind the failing Greek economy and learnt the ancient history of the country. I was able to develop lifelong friendships with the group and understood that unless we visit another country, it is hard to truly understand another culture.

I believe in the power of traveling (something like that). Because of that, I am excited to participate in DBI (its NYU’s study abroad program) in the future, to submerge myself in another country with NYU students to study business.
Global Citizen (My study abroad experiences)

A native of California, I was raised in Hong Kong from the age of three to 11. I spent three summers abroad in England prior to entering high school where I studied English and perfected my fluency (in both writing and speaking). Following high school, I studied abroad in Costa Rica, France, and Greece. During this time I developed my language skills furthermore, and laid the foundation for what would become my experience in the world of international business.

My study-abroad experiences contributed much to who I would eventually become. The awareness and insights I garnered during my time overseas taught me about the impact of globalization and the ins-and-outs of cultural customs and practices in these parts of the world. This has given me keen insights into what drives certain economic policies, and the incentives that accompany certain moral and ethical tendencies found in these regions of the world.

In 2013, I studied in Greece with the College of Business. During this time, my classmates and I explored the catalysts which eventually led to the failing of Greece's economy. We also learned about the ancient history of Greece, and trajectory of the nation's economy and political sovereignty during that decades that would later follow. It was during this time that I created what would become life-long relationships with my classmates and professors, and where I learned about the value of traveling; the ability to evolve the perceptions and ideas of my own world by experiencing foreign cultures and ways of living.

It is for this reason that I am excited to participate in DBI, as it will provide me with the opportunity to further develop my business skills, and expand my knowledge and know-how, by submerging myself in another country, this time with my fellow NYU classmates!

Writing Sample 4 - Undergraduate Final Capstone Research Paper

Title: The Restoration of Anacostia River

The point of this research paper is to determine whether GIS plays a critical role in improving the pollution afflicting the Anacostia River by means of evaluating the current circumstances and steps deemed necessary en route its restoration. GIS provides the ability to describe spatial patterns using a computer database enabling viewability of complex spatial patterns made easy (Claden-Yardley, 2008). The maps, charts, and graphs included in this research paper have been collected to depict the knowledge made available through Geographic Information Systems (GIS), further sufficing the interpretation and evaluation of GIS as a means for restoring the river and its watershed.

The Anacostia River is nearly nine miles in length and floats from Maryland into Washington D.C. joining with the Potomac River en route the Chesapeake Bay (Anacostia River Watershed. 2007). About 80% of the Anacostia’s watershed is located in Maryland and the other 20% is in the District of Columbia (Department of the Environment. 2010). The beauty of the Anacostia River is illustrated in its numerous outdoor recreational offerings, including trails for hiking and bicycling, as well as fishing and boating along the river. Various parks exist along the river as well, many of which offer recreational services and sites for leisure relaxation and enjoyment (Anacostia River Watershed. 2007). The Anacostia River was once an abundant source of ecological wildlife; however it has become impoverished and flows through some of Washington D.C.'s poorest communities, which has led to its nickname, "The Forgotten River" (NRDC. 2013). . .

Interdisciplinary Rationale
The research of my paper is based upon Geographic Information Systems (GIS) which has come about through Information Technology (IT). My paper focuses on the utilization of Geographic Information Systems (Information Technology) in order to find out how GIS systems aid in contributing to the restoration process of the Anacostia River in Washington D.C. GIS consists of hardware, data, and software, each of which presents interaction by means of a user, technically trained with skills for using GIS at its highest potential (Ohioline. 2013). The processing of data through means of its acquisition and manipulation is one of the essential keys in the success of utilizing GIS (Ohioline. 2013). The transition into digital technology is useful in enabling the navigation of our world in an advanced way. It has improved all fields of study, from science to politics, and has created new occupations as well. An example of how GIS can be of benefit is shown in how GIS is able to help find out where things are, how they are related, and how attributed factors coincide with one another to tell us the story of what may be happening under past, present, and future circumstances. . .

Historical Background
The Anacostia area is known for high crime rates and a high population living in poverty. Its poverty over the years has brought about an increase in homicide rates in and around neighborhoods along the river (Washington Post. 2010). Socio-economically speaking, the Anacostia area compared to D.C. has a much lower realty value. Additionally, there is a lower percentage of high-school graduates, and higher shares of households living in poverty. The median income in Anacostia is  well-below that found in Washington D.C., and unemployment is 50% higher (NARPAC. 2013). . .  Continue reading here:
