College Application Essays

I never dreamed of being able to fly. Just standing anywhere higher than ten feet above ground always triggered crippling anxiety in me. Nope.

A cowhide ball zips across the plate at an extraordinary speed; its journey ends with a thud into a leather mitt. The process repeats. The melodic rhythm is a symphony to my soul. Baseball is my home. Through all the changes in my family, one thing remains constant— from April to October, every single day, we gather to watch the Cleveland Indians game. Our...
