One function that your Portfolio serves is that of a repository of your best work, the work that has been most meaningful to you, the work that you are most proud of, the work that you worked the hardest on, the work that demonstrates ways in which you have grown and developed as an intellectual person, or work that you want us to see for whatever reason. The sample may be a paper, a photograph, a video of a dance or music recital, a piece of creative writing, or a mathematical proof, to name some examples. Upload the work you want to showcase here.
