This presentation discusses what mindfulness is in the context of writing a personal statement for prestigious national scholarship applications. It introduces the audience to mindful advising strategies of high-achieving students and focuses on how to make students aware of their operating on autopilot when accumulating their achievements in a long list on their resumes. I challenge students to question their motivation and their community engagement by seeing the help they offer to others beyond their academic capacities and privilege status. What is the grounding from which their engagement emerges? Why are they acting for the good of others? The understanding of the “why” behind the “what” and “how” is a lengthy process that reveals a deeper personal pathway of being, defining oneself, and engaging from one’s center and one’s inner values rather than outside motivations of doing, achieving, and delivering results.
