Failure experience
I've worried about Christoph Kramer for months—I haven’t been able to find out anything about his condition since about a week after he got a concussion in the World Cup final, but my concussion doctor warned me of the dangers of second impact syndrome and the increased risk of future brain injury—like life, concussions aren’t about the first blow, but about what happens after. A girl collides with my head as she falls from a stunt....

My advice about getting recommenders
359 Words
At my school, they have junior teachers write about you so that the counselors can subtly tell you if you should ask a teacher or not.
