Case one:

Growing up in a traditional South Asian household, it was only a dream for most woman to get educated and have a good paying job. I was determined to break that barrier. I wanted to be the first women in my family and village to get a bachelor’s degree and start working in the corporate world.  I finished my high school in India and later moved to the United States where I began my College life. And here I am today, a senior at Wayne State University perusing a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration with a major in Management. I aspire to become an entrepreneur someday and work in the Hospitality and Travel Industry.

When I immigrated to United States, I quickly realized that two countries were poles apart, not only in terms on the physical location but pretty much every aspect. I had to adapt myself to the new traditions, culture, food, people, laws, weather and other numerous factors.  This helped me understand that I had the ability to learn quickly and adapt to changes. My culture differed from people around me, but I was not only able to make this work despite the differences but also sometimes use it to my advantage as a conversation starter. This turmoil of journey until now has shaped my personality to what I am today. 

 Virtues are universal and recognized by all cultures as basic qualities necessary for our well-being and happiness. For me being kind and forgiving is an important virtue. I believe we are all human beings in the end, and we will make a mistake. For me I always tend to forgive people, I always try look through their bad and focus on good things that they have done for me. This has helped people in my life understand that I am a loving and caring person and thus I receive endless amount of care and love from them.

For me being kind and forgiving is an important virtue. I believe we are all human beings in the end, and we will make a mistake. For me I always tend to forgive people, I always try look through their bad and focus on good things that they have done for me. This has helped people in my life understand that I am a loving and caring person and thus I receive endless amount of care and love from them. I always try to help people no matter if its work or school. I remember one instance there was a family emergency for one of coworker and he requested me to stay back. My esteemed self was appraised when I decided to stay back without giving a second thought despite being at work for more than 8 hours already. She is thankful to me since that day and considers me one of her best colleagues. It is this attitude which has helped me create and cherish new friendships all through my work and personal life. Something you do not know yourself unless you look at yourself through someone else’s point of view therefore I collected few stories from friends, family and co-workers to understand myself better. Sam, my older sister considers me as a little helper because I helped her draw and complete assignments all through her college classes. My partner thinks of me as a motivator who will not take no for an answer whereas Viraj, my best friend says that I have helped him open up and be more extravert about feelings, this has helped him with creating new relationships and communicating better. My younger cousin Khushi, sees me as someone that she looks up to. I am her role model and I see this because I was going through the same things when I was her age. This way I make sure that she does not make the same mistakes I did in my adolescent life. From all these four stories, I can say I am helpful to all my family, friends and co-workers, I try my best to be there for the people I can for, if I will push it as much as I can to make sure they can better their lives. It has always been my priority to make sure others around me are happy even if it means I have to compromise for it because seeing the people I care about happy, makes me happy. Case two: There are four different aspects of the GIVE model. They are growing self, integrated self, virtuous self, and esteemed self. Growing self is to become more like your desired self by evolving and adapting ways at work. I experienced this when working as a paralegal. When I first started the job, I had no experience. I was timid and constantly worried that I was messing up at my job. However, once I was a year into the job, I was able to do tasks with confidence. Integrated self is the different parts of yourself being connected in a compatible, enriching way. For example, my job as a paralegal connected my work role with my passion for law. Virtuous self is to display virtuous qualities at work. For example, I displayed compassion when I helped a new co-worker get the hang of the job. Esteemed self is to feel positively about your characteristics at work. For example, I feel valued by my co-workers at work. The reason I feel valued is because they show their appreciation for me by words of affirmation. I analyzed a story from my sister, Jackie and from my friend, Leah about the positive contributions I had on their lives. Their stories had some similarities and recurring themes between them. The first thing I noticed was they both expressed that I help them when they are in need. For example, they both described how I’ve lent them money and didn’t rush them to pay me back. Another similarity in their stories was that I am loyal. I’m the first one to stand up for them, and I will be by their side regardless of whether I agree with them. For example, I’ve stood up to my stepmom about my sister even though I thought my sister was in the wrong. I also have defended my friends honor when another mutual friend had accused her of taking her property. I hadn’t had the opportunity to ask my friend yet if she had done it. I was loyal enough that I couldn’t allow our mutual friend to make such serious accusations in the manner she had went about it. The last similarity between their stories was that I am compassionate towards them. They both expressed that they can tell I care about them by various things I do. For example, I go out of my way to cheer them up when they are sad. I’m their shoulder to cry on, and I give them advice and support. Case three: To start, I am growing. I often ask myself questions like “am I a good person?” or “what are things that I can do to help me become a better person?” I’ve become aware with how I am changing mentally and how I am acting and reacting towards certain situations. At the age of 22, I can definitely say that I am certainly not done growing. The one place I know I have grown in is my workplace. I am proud to say that I have held multiple leadership positions within my place of work that contribute to my degree of becoming a manager. For the “I” part of the GIVE model of positive identity, I am integrated. I hold a high variety of characteristics within my identity, some of which include work roles, family relationships, and educational background. These different aspects of my identity are all connected together in some sort of enriching and unique ways. For example, I am the oldest out of all of my cousins and when we were younger, I used to always mentor them and act as if I was their “teacher” while pretending to play school. I have tied this example into my roles in my work place as well as in my education. I like to learn and teach new things for example helping coworkers learn something that they didn’t as well as helping fellow classmates understand something that they didn’t understand. I am virtuous. This specific part of the GIVE model of positive identity is a strong one for me. Confidence and trust are probably two of the most virtuous qualities that I obtain. I have the belief that I can do something well and succeed at it and am trustworthy towards others as well as being trustworthy for myself. An example of me obtaining my virtuous qualities would be a time that I had a huge test to take and though one might think that they wouldn’t have confidence to pass it, I had the confidence and trusted myself that I was going to pass this test and succeed in my educational path. As for my esteemed self, some questions that may arise are “do I love myself?” and “what am I proud of?” I am valued and I am loved. It is easy to love myself and value myself when I know I have others around me that love and value me. I find that others around me appreciate and understand me and it makes me feel more important. It also makes me feel good knowing that my esteemed self can make others feel loved and valued. For example, I belong to an organization for leukemia and lymphoma and contributing to activates and fundraisers for the society makes me feel happy knowing that patients with leukemia and lymphoma are receiving the help that they deserve. My boyfriend, as well as my best friend had written short stories about me where I have positively contributed to their lives and reflected toward my best self. My boyfriend points out my confidence. In his short story about my positive contribution he says that “Saturdays are usually our busiest days whether it be going out to dinner and a movie or attending one of her cousin’s birthday parties. With our busy Saturday, Maria shows her confidence with her school work on Sundays. She is confident that she will complete her assignments to the best of her ability regardless of the fun we had on Saturday. She is a role model of mine and has been building my confidence since the first day I have met her. My best friends’ short story of the positive contribution I have had on her life has to do with my trust. She says “The one thing that I think of the most when I think of trust is secrets and Maria has worked for my trust and has never betrayed it. A couple years ago I was going through a really tough time and Maria was the only person I could run to and talk about everything I was going through. She was considerate with what I was telling her and not judgmental with what I had said. The one thing I like the most about her is how trustworthy she is.” I have found a pattern of both of these stories and they contribute to my virtuous self. They believe that I am confident in anything I do in my life as well as being the most trustworthy person they have ever met. And that’s why I believe that virtuous self-shows my strongest qualities to who I am according to the GIVE model.
