Give Examples of Your Bold Claims!

Speaking as an experienced manager who has recently taken on hiring responsibilities, I can confidently state that I would not hire 99% of the people responding here. The answers are hugely vague, horribly generic and painfully cliche. However, the biggest flaw with the majority is that there are no examples to verify the bold claims of awesomeness. You're a hard worker? You have amazing customer service skills? You are good at studying?! Every applicant says that. GIVE EXAMPLES. You need to verify your claims, or your application will be canned immediately. Oh, and saying you have certain awesome personality traits or abilities because you are religious is totally meaningless.
—Guest Manager

Music and Listening to My Heart

I'm 14 (high school in our country) and passionate in music. Why do I know so? Because i have always had interest in it since I was younger. Society made me believe that I can't make a living through music, so I decided to look for a different path for myself since I myself am smart. I study in an science high school only for few chosen students in our districts. I thought I should be a doctor, but I felt that when I think of my future, I see myself as so, but what I feel about it is lost. My heart wasn't in it. I realized what was missing, why I felt empty about imagining my future. I denied my passion for music back then, but now realizing what I truly want, I feel happier and more alive, cause I just listened to what my heart says, and music is what I want.
