Default Help!!!

For UCs (to be specific UCI) here are prompts for personal statement:

Transfer applicant prompt

What is your intended major? Discuss how your interest in the subject developed and describe any experience you have had in the field — such as volunteer work, internships and employment, participation in student organizations and activities — and what you have gained from your involvement.

Prompt for all applicants

Tell us about a personal quality, talent, accomplishment, contribution or experience that is important to you. What about this quality or accomplishment makes you proud and how does it relate to the person you are?

Choose a topic for both essays.

Look critically at the information in your application: your grades, awards, activities and work experience, family and income. Anticipate questions an admissions evaluator will have after reading your application. The personal statement is your opportunity to answer those questions.
Now I haven't done much of student body organizations and clubs or any other internship that will help with my mathematics major. What to do? Also my GPA is very frail. Can't divulge more here...will someone inbox me for tips and help? Thanks!

Since you guys "know me" from virtual bytes of about 15,000 posts can you suggest what will I highlight?

Thanks. Please help!
