1. Everyone has their own specific set of beliefs. It’s one of the many things that makes all of us unique individuals. These beliefs can be anything from religion to a favorite sports team. Personally, I believe that if you have the ability to help someone, then you are morally obligated to do so. This is something I’ve always thought to be extremely important. Throughout my entire life I’ve always been a huge fan of comic books and super heroes; and despite the fact that those characters are fictional and could never exist in the real world, I’ve always looked up to them and each day I strive to be more like them. One of the ways I do this is by helping others whenever I can, regardless of the sacrifices I have to make for them because making other people happy makes me happy in return. Another one of my strong beliefs is that one should never be mean or hurtful to others. Sure, people may have their differences, but at the end of the day, we’re all humans trying to make it in this world, so why should we make life difficult for others? As someone who has experienced a lot of bullying in the past, I feel the pain of others who are treated unfairly and believe that being disrespectful and mean to others is one of the worst things you can do to someone. In addition, I also practice Catholicism. I’m not extremely religious, but when times are tough and I feel like the world is beating down on me, I always find myself looking for help from a higher power. Religion has always been present in my life and I intend to keep it that way. These are just some of the beliefs that help define who I am.
2. Honestly, I’m still not entirely sure of what to do with my REVEALED box. However, based off of my beliefs and interests, I’m thinking of including something involving super heroes. I’ve always been extremely interested in these characters and they have helped shape my beliefs and who I am today. Super heroes stand for justice, friendship, and goodwill. Each day I strive to be like these heroes and help those in need whenever I can. Because of the major impact that comic books and their characters have had on my life, I plan on including references to them in my REVEALED box. In addition, I may include some objects that represent my Irish heritage. Family has always been extremely important to me and is a huge part of my life, so I would like to showcase that in my REVEALED box. I also may include objects referring to computers because computers have had a major impact on my life as I spend most of my free time in front of one, and I’m a computer science major and I intend to find a job working with computers in the future. These are just a few of the many things that represent who I am, and by putting objects such as these in my REVEALED box, I can show others just who I really am on the inside.
