I Will Use My God Given Talents in the Practice of law

Given an understanding of the scarcity and importance of time and the fleeting nature of existence, time commitment decisions are among the most important choices that an individual has to make.

I believe that time is a gift from God and it is up to individuals to make wise decisions regarding how they will invest the time that God has granted them. My perception of time dictates, to a degree, how I chose to use it. I believe that time is linear - there is a beginning and an end - God, the creator of time. For this reason, I strive to use my time wisely. One day I will be unable to live like I do now, so I believe that it is important to make the most of what time I have.

However, I also perceive time to be a progression of cycles that God has set in motion. I need constant reminders of both my insignificance and my potential for changing the course of time. I believe that my existence is a small part in a much larger scheme that I'll never comprehend. The fact that I wake up in the morning is mind-boggling when I consider that I am no more deserving of life than the Southeast Asian child that dies of hunger or the elderly woman that dies alone in a cold, cavernous rest home. Time continues to perpetuate itself, but I have yet to be included in the endless cycle of deaths that paves the way for new births. My life is a precious gift from God; in many ways, I have no control over my future - a truth that I have accepted and use as a motivation to manage what time I have wisely.

Furthermore, despite a fundamental lack of control of the inevitable, I believe that my time commitments do result in meaningful action. Though time may cycle, my actions and their consequences continue to exist and set a precedent for my future behavior. For this reason, I choose to commit my time to endeavors that will pay future dividends, both personal and societal.

I began to realize the importance of time commitments in high school. I stayed busy with athletics, homework, and part-time work and consequently set an early precedent for wise time management. I understood the immediate effect that my high school commitments would have on my future and accordingly dedicated myself to deserving activities so that I could continue to pursue my goals in college. I was willing to commit four years of my life to improving myself through further education with the hope of landing a desirable job and living a better life in the future. My high school time commitments paid their dividends when I received numerous academic and athletic rewards and was accepted to UNC-CH at the end of my senior year. During my years at UNC-CH I have...
