College Application Essays

We all know that kids say the darndest things, but sometimes it is the connotation attached to the words that really packs the punch. Such was my experience when my fellow classmate carelessly announced, “You are fat,” in the middle of Mrs. Devoll’s ninth grade English class. Talk about shell shock. I may have been innocent and naïve, but I understood the tone ascribed to those words. My life began to rip apart at the seams, catapulting my...

Approaching Boston University, the scenic campus, cultural diversity, and impressive transportation are hard to ignore; however, there are a myriad of reasons as to why Boston is a great match. BU can undoubtedly fulfill my educational curiosity with the opportunity for internships at world famous institutions, but programs that offer the opportunity for world travel separate Boston University. Recently, I learned about BU’s summer Study Abroad program, which has only solidified my belief that I have found the perfect...

It has always been one of my dreams to travel to Europe, so I can gain an understanding of my family’s beginnings. It is 2016.

As I step down the archaic cobblestone streets, a joyful silence exudes from every core of my being. This is where...

Supplemental Essay: Unique question posed by school
256 Words
According to Merriam-Webster, a riddle is defined as “a question or statement intentionally phrased so as to require ingenuity in ascertaining its answer or meaning.” But, does one really have to be a genius to answer a simple question? Sometimes all it takes is a visionary mind. Oedipus and the riddle of the Sphinx are a perfect example of this. In Sophocles’ play, the Sphinx kept guard over Thebes. Ultimately, the people were imprisoned and trade was impossible. The city...

Hunger has no boundaries. Race. Religion. Age. They have no relevance. In a world plagued with declining employment opportunities and skyrocketing living expenses, it is no wonder that homelessness has become an epidemic. The National Law Center on Poverty estimates that between 2.3 and 3.5 million currently experience homelessness. More and more individuals, especially families, are turned away from shelters and soup kitchens because there simply aren’t enough provisions. My YouTube video shows the plight of the homeless and provides ways...

I have danced competitively for as long as I can remember. As both a student and teaching assistant at South Shore Dance for the majority of my life, I have had the opportunity to create a plethora of relationships with not only my teammates, but the people within my community. In addition to our annual recitals and competitions, my class frequently performs for the elderly at the local nursing home. However, the visits we make to the local VA Hospital...
