- Be yourself and be proud of who you are;
- Discuss how you share/can share your talent(s) with others;
- Write about how you have spread joy and kindness;
- Share how you found the positive during challenging times;
- Share how you have been a positive influence to someone and inspired others; or,
- Describe how you can make change happen.
