I don’t think you should be trying to fit someone else’s expectation of you. You know yourself so just own that! You know your best qualities so in terms of applying for scholarships just reflect on those and your current experience! Don’t ever think you have to change your personality to impress people in any situation whether it’s for school, careers, relationships, etc. Keep working on yourself and know that you are capable of being successful by just being yourself !
I don’t know if this answers your question but thank you for allowing me to share! Good luck !
