It was 11 PM and I was supposed to be asleep. Yet there I was, preparing to give my uncle his first ever tattoo. I still remember the experience of holding that tattoo gun for the first time. Being unfamiliar with the tool, I awkwardly began to shade my uncle’s wrinkled tan skin. The gun was surprisingly heavy, though it made for very clearly drawn outlines. With every stroke I made, I could feel the buzzing of the gun tickle...

What about being a student at Boston University most excites you? (250 word maximum)

My passion never wavered, further...

How I narrowed down my essay topics
297 Words
Applying to college is a looong and tedious process especially if you're applying with Common App. So, when it comes to your essays, start early and set deadlines.

I asked help from Crimson Education, a private college admission consultation company. Sometimes, even if we think we know ourselves to the core, there are small...

I was so stressed that in my head I was always busy, but in reality I was just procrastinating to delay all of my responsibilities. Every...
