  1. Keen intellect
  2. Sense of humor
  3. Leadership skills
  4. Warm and loving
  5. Creative and sensitive
  6. Attention to detail
  7. Perseverance
  8. Love of Learning
  9. Writes with beautiful words
  10. Helpful and humble
  11. Inventive
  12. Inquisitive researcher
  13. Reverence for life and others
  14. Socially conscious
  15. Team player
  16. Funny and creative
  17. Problem solver
  18. Kind and caring
  19. Exuberant 
  20. Tenacious learner
  21. Empathetic designer
