College Application Essays

The screaming, the banging and the fresh hole in the wall hardly fazed me. I’d seen much worse from my older sister. Cecilia is bipolar. Mental illness badly skews her perception of the world.

If I were to write the story of my life until now, it would be entitled “My Life as a Third Grade Dropout”. In third grade, I was diagnosed with a major illness that required so many hospital visits that I had to leave school for the remainder of the school year.
