College Application Essays

The first question I always get when people meet me is, "What are you?" I suppose it's not every day that you meet a person that could be any Asian race!

They were obviously Filipino, and nothing about me really screamed Filipino—not even my loud aunts at parties who would laugh...

At Brown, the aspect of an open education wherein I have the freedom to do and study the subjects that I want is incredibly appealing. In my opinion, this approach is what college and higher liberal education should be doing—giving us adolescents the opportunity to take on higher learning in a way that would actually prepare us to be individuals and adults.
