College Application Essays

Personal Statement: Family background
65 Words
"There is a reason why a man would drag bags filled with cotton through heat-drenched fields of South Texas every day. It’s the same reason why a young couple would pay thousands of dollars to a people smuggler to drive them through multiple states to freedom. It is also the same reason why I am writing this essay. We all want a better life."

Supplemental Essay: Strong beliefs/principles
64 Words
"The Haitians demonstrate a firm commitment and work-ethic to the rebuilding of their communities. I am uncertain if I could have gained a complete understanding of being “fully invested” without seeing first-hand the villagers’ work. The Haitians also display an enthusiasm and faith in God that has led to my own spiritual growth. Through their passion, I have seen the universal face of God."
