College Application Essays

My personal statement was a story about how I had a student in my 5th grade class who was often bullied, and how I befriended him and ten years later he not only remembered me, but told a mutual friend about how much I had meant to him. The moral of the story was that every day, we are given a choice to either make positive impacts or negative ones on the people around us.
