Hello, I'm Dridgely Dy and I graduated as a Civil Engineer at Xavier University. I am well qualified for the job at the construction firm because I possess two qualities that have helped me overcome challenges. These two qualities are Empathy and Humility. Let me tell you a story how I acquired these two qualities.
Kong Hua School
Growing up, I was the one who was always right in solving math equations from simple to complex equations. I sometimes question my classmates why they don't understand a simple equation. So I was arrogant in the past, until I met one of my closest friends.
I met this friend named Dylan. I thought that he was just an ordinary person. However I never expected for him to be such a smart person. To the point that he topped many quizzes in both math and science. So I approached him after a week.
That was an amazing story, tell me how'd you learn to show empathy to others.
One Week Later
In our talk, I finally understood why Dylan didn't brag about what he achieved. It is to show humility towards others, because your knowledge is only limited. Even if you think you're all that perfect, someone might still be a step above you. So show humility towards others, because giving credit to others for your success can make them feel special.
Hey Dylan why are you not bragging about your success in academics?
Why should I brag about my success instead of helping our classmates in their studies? Even if I am that smart, I still show humility.
Ever since then, I always show humility towards others. However not to the point to make my confidence wither away. I'm confident at what I do, but I show modesty on my actions and not brag on what I achieved, just like Dylan.
