Case study

Question 5

Anyone who sees an opportunity and seizes it can be said to have a positive attitude, selflessness and dares to dream. Charles Best saw a group of students who were suffering due to lack of some necessities in the classroom and found a way to help them. This kind of attitude cannot be found just anywhere. It needs to come from someone with some traits that helps him see the suffering in others and come up with a way to help them. Best had the desire to change how the world works. He wanted to make a student’s life better by providing what they did not have. He perceived a world where people would willingly help the students if they were given an opportunity to and he utilized this opportunity.

Best can be said to have a selfless personality. This is because he is able to think about other people and see how he will help them. He went back to his home and saved the money that he used to sponsor the donorchoose.org. There are not so many people who can get out of their way to go and start an organization to help other people while they put their own lives at a standstill. He is also a go-getter. All the conversations took place in the lunchroom and they never left the room. He however took it upon itself to make the dream come true by coming out of his comfort zone and taking risks that would later help other people in society. Best saw the opportunity and acted in a selfless manner and is now able to be the bridge between the students who need help and the people who are willing to help.
