As a sophomore in global history, our teacher once showed us a documentary about Napoleon and his formation of the largest empire since the age of the Romans. All students were fascinated when they heard of the general’s conquest of almost an entire continent.

Right then, the whole class...

Supplemental Essay “Why us” school essay
487 Words

I particularly remember Evelyn, an old woman with smoky gray hair with...

The melody starts low, as a whirring sound of flute and oboe gently envelops the hall. Slowly, the timpani and the bass drum lay out a blanket of solemn theme. Another theme of clarinet and trumpet then appears, complementing the previous, yet affirming its own identity with an energetic, new twist of the melody. My predilection for music can be associated to the thematic development in a concert band. Music has taught me to think creatively with its infinite possibilities....
