School Specific Essays

Discuss an accomplishment, event, or realization that sparked a period of personal growth and a new understanding of yourself or others.
I was facing an identity crisis. Was I an American in Japan, or a Japanese coming home? The fact that I was Japanese-American always lead me to this confusing question. I could never decide which nationality to be. My entire life I’ve lived in the United States, so that should obviously be the culture that I follow.

Supplemental Essay: “Why us” school essay
