I struggled to find a word that meant “now”. As in right now. Despite my years of learning Spanish that had rendered me a proficient speaker, I failed to find a way to communicate in a way that was unexpected and frustrating. This type of communication characterized my first few weeks in Santa Lucía, Panamá. Through Amigos de las Americas, a non-profit organization, I had embarked on a six-week journey to live with a host family, to work with...

The Power of One is the ideal book for Boston College's First-Year Convocation program because by examining South Africa during World War II, a nation wrought with racial tensions between numerous ethnic groups, Bryce Courtenay, a former resident of South Africa under the apartheid system, conveys the positive change that one individual can bring about through faith and dedication. Peekay, the protagonist, grows up with a Zulu nanny, British parents, Boer classmates and teachers, a German friend and piano teacher,...

“Expecto Patronum” I think, waving my hand under my desk, as pre-race jitters fill my mind the day of a cross-country meet. Silly, I know, since muggles like me can’t do magic. But nonetheless, the idea of being able to cast away my fears with a powerful force of positive energy is appealing. I wonder idly what form my patronus would be- maybe a cheetah (hopefully not a sloth). The secret of the Harry Potter series is that magic...

Supplemental Essay Using a metaphor

Into two giant squares, where the tallest buildings in New York City once stood, falls an unending rush of water from all sides into a dark abyss. “Reflecting Absence,” the new 9/11 memorial, commemorates the emptiness that now exists where a symbol of American identity once stood. As I pass through a metal detector and as police search my purse, I am reminded of the great impact 9/11 has made; hyper-awareness prevails. I see twisted branches on a lone pear tree, the ...

“I survived, but it’s not a happy ending. I was a coward. I went to war.” I have always loved reading for the allure of being transported into another place, time, and life, as well as the beauty of written language, and I have envisioned myself as a writer since childhood. However, when I read the above line from the memoir The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien my perspective on literature changed. I realized that language is...
