In my point of view, to be a person with good character means that you should be nice and friendly to people around you, and try to help those people who need help. Being a person with good character means that you respect other people. Using my real experience as an example. When I was in elementary school, I went to a nursing house in my hometown in China with my friends. The first thing we do was to serve dishes. Some old people were really old and they can’t even talk clearly so the only thing we could do is trying our best to hear from them and make them satisfied. Though serving is really a hard thing, after we’ve done, I found that waiters and waitresses are not easy and full of difficulties. The second thing we did was talking with them. At first I though that talking with old people would be annoying because they always talk a lot, but actually we really had a good time. We listened to them talking about their family, how were their children and how cute their grandchildren were. And the last thing we did was cleaning their rooms. After this activity, I found out that helping other people is really a fun thing; it can make our hearts be stronger and help us shape our characters. It also deals with showing our respect to others, especially the old. And another experience is joining Love Heart Society in my old high school in China. I remembered one time, one graduates from our school had an injury and really needed money for an operation. We gathered all our members…
There are two main types of essays you would be asked to write. One is a personal statement; the other is a proposal or statement of intent.
1. A personal statement should be a narrative giving a picture of you as an individual. It should deal with your personal history, family background, influences on intellectual development, the educational and cultural opportunities (or lack of them) to which you have been exposed, and the ways in which these experiences have affected you. Include your special…

I have lived in Wandsworth all my life and I have one sister who is two and a half years my senior. The subjects I chose at GCSE were ICT, History, Performing Arts, French and Spanish. I chose these subjects because I enjoyed them and I thought I could do well in them. I chose two languages rather than only one as I was in the top set and I am able to manage this well to get two qualification. A subject I have found challenging is Chemistry as I found it quite hard to understand…

Personal Ethical Statement
The Ethical Lens Inventory was thought to be a waste of time and a pointless homework assignment. Now after completing, my view on this assignment has juristically changed due to the fact I was able to learn new things about myself, and have a better understanding on how to overcome obstacles.
My preferred ethical lens is Collaboration. Collaboration is essential throughout…

Since I was in elementary school, I have been fascinated by the world and country that I live in. My grandfather was an intelligentsia during China`s Cultural Revolution. When I was eight, I learned he suffered political persecution by the Communist Party of China; he was sentenced to death by an accusation of anti-revolution. I started to be aware of the political issue of China. Then I constantly began to focus more and more on national politics…
The study of the mind has had a profound effect upon society in an eclectic amount of ways, ranging from the relatively recent and extensive improvements on the healthcare of patients and mentally ill to the development of infants and the evolution of humans as dependant social creatures. Psychology is the fundamental basis of society and as humans we are all driven by this powerful force which we are still incapable of fully understanding. I initially chose psychology out of…
I will strive to listen to my intuition and use my finding to determine the greater good for everyone. My preferred ethical lense is that of results and autonomy. I am independent, and I get things done my own way.
Along with every set of ethical standards comes a blind spot, sometimes causing faults and setbacks. I sometimes tend to be satisfied with too little. So long as I am satisfied with my current needs, I tend to be complacent, leaving problems unresolved…

Growing up, my grandmother taught me great life lessons of passion, kindness and ambition. I remember an incident when we were sleeping one night. I could hear a loud voice calling for her from afar. I awoke, grabbed the flashlight and followed my grandmother. My job was to hold the lamp for her and escort her as we walked to the house of the pregnant woman about to give birth. I was only 8 years old. These events happened all the time so I already knew what to do. It was then…
