Personal Statement: Failure experience

I have often been told that the number one fear in the United States is public speaking. No doubt, my presentation on the Hyoid Bone played a part in this. Formulated in the darker part of my sophomore year, which may or may not share a connection with the prospect of summer break, my Hyoid Bone SpeechTM is the result of what happens when Forensics and Human Anatomy collide. Trademarked because I suspect no one will ever try such a...









Supplemental Essay: “Why us” school essay
152 Words
DUKE ESSAY - Freedom is vital, for, without such, human interaction is naught but instinct. Though genetics is by no means a shunned institution, stepping out of the theoretical and into the actual is a challenge only possible given freedom.

I have an increasing tendency to be decreasingly agreeable as a subject remains uncontested, for it is in complacency that I find issue. Thus, it only comes natural that I be so unnatural, so unwilling...

JOHNS HOPKINS ESSAY - When I wake-up in the morning, I do not think of the Self. Instead, I grapple with my alarm, groan about the day ahead, and curse my early morning aches. Every single moment of my existence need not be used to develop a singular side, a strange amalgamation named “Connor,” but instead to simply live and experience, for only through that can true self-actualization be realized. In essence, there is no specific major labeled after me,...
