Personal Statement: Creative personal story

Letters are to some such insignificant things. They have been degraded to be merely filler for mailboxes. My mother has a peculiar affinity to letters that I suspect was the inspiration for a task she gave me- to write letters to myself so I could reflect on my actions from another point of view. She gave me a booklet (a measly thing that tore so much that by the end it was mostly duct tape) to jot down my thoughts....

WILLIAM AND MARY To whom it may concern, I was born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras on the first of July the summer of ’97. I was born in a very dangerous city in a very dangerous country.

Supplemental Essay: Unique question posed by school
245 Words
UVA My favorite genre of films are documentaries. I must have seen hundreds of documentaries, all with different subject points. My Netflix account is littered with suggestions for a new documentary that explores some untapped world of knowledge. I love to watch documentaries because they expose me to a new topic that I have not yet been exposed to. I have seen many documentaries, some are fast-paced, coming in and presenting frightening facts to try to elicit change by shock,...

UNIVERISTY OF RICHMOND Spiders are the lovable rogues that we should aspire to be. They are constantly forsaken by people, but they don’t care, they just keep on their way knowing that one day someone will come around and appreciate them for what they truly are. The spider has many things to teach to those who are willing to look beneath their grisly exterior. We have to open ourselves up to the idea that to learn something about yourself,...

For my personal essay I wrote about how I had this strange habit of writing myself cards as if I was a stranger to myself. I did this so I could reflect on what was happening in my life like I was a third party. I wrote about how being able to reflect on myself left me with the impression that at the root of all problems there is a very simple solution. I wrote about how that has made...
