Essay #1:  Eric Lu Scholarship Award

Essay Theme:  Jimmy Carter, our past president, dedicated his life by developing the Carter Center to advance human rights in order to develop greater unity in social interaction across the world. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, gave up 99% of his Facebook shares to charity. Rather than using that money to relish in worldly things, he’s putting aside luxury for the sake of others. Dr. Jitsuhiro Yamada, who pursued the prestigious career as a neurosurgeon, placed his life on hold for one year to serve the community as the International Lions Club President. Sacrifice is the willingness to put aside one’s own benefit for the greater good. Regardless of an individual’s ranking or social standing, these are countless prime examples of people sacrificing their needs for the sake of humanity.

Do you recall a time where you had to sacrifice something, and how have these sacrifices come to define you as an individual?

Essay #2: Chinese American Lions Club of Atlanta Scholarship Award

Essay Theme:  As a nation of immigrants offering opportunities  for anyone who is willing to work hard to achieve acceptance and success, what are your thoughts concerning providing safe haven for refugees from around the world who are seeking escape from danger and oppression?
