Are you an individual that finds joy in helping others? IM High is probably not what you thought it was, but it’s exactly what you should strive to be. IM HIGH is an acronym to describe an individual of high character. High character individuals have unique attributes that help them not only stand out, but also excel in adverse situations. Some of the traits that high character individuals have are found in the IM HIGH acronym:
Intelligent - Having good understanding or a high mental capacity; quick to comprehend.
Magnanimous - Generous in forgiving an insult or injury; free from petty resentful ness.
Humble - Not proud or arrogant; courteously respectful.
Integrity - Adherence to moral and ethical principles. Soundness of moral character.
Genuine - Sincere; Authentic.
Helpful - Giving or rendering aid or assistance; or service.
Do you have any of these traits?
Are you selfless and willing to lend a helping hand when called upon?
Do your morals prevent you from being a person who shames on those who are less fortunate or less talented than you?
I hope your answer to these questions were Yes, Yes, and Yes. Understand this, as you continue to emerge as a college student, eyes are on you for every move that you make and even the ones that you don’t make. When you graduate and seek to dive into your career, your prospective employer will want to know about your character. Your goal is to ensure that you provide them enough data (Resume, Extra-Curricular Activities, References) to show them you’re an IM HIGH individual without saying a word.
