i need to answer 2 of these essay questions for an application, but i don’t have any ideas and i feel really stressed out! please help!
1) if you could change your educational experience thus far, what would you change? please explain.
2)discuss a situation in which you had to work closely with someone who is different from you. what did you learn from this experience and how did it affect you?
3)select a person and explain how he/she has influenced your life and values.
If I could change anything about my educational experience I would challenge myself more. I wouldn’t take the easy way out just because I wanted the automatic A’s. I would have taken those college prep classes in high school even if I didn’t think I would have done well. Life is about challenging yourself and I wish I could have done that with my education.
I once had to work with someone who was laid back and calm about everything. I am the total opposite. I am outgoing, outspoken and full of energy. I didn’t think we would accomplish anything or work well together. Turns out we complimented each other. I learned how to think things through and take the time to look outside the box and see the big picture. She learned from me to go for the gusto and don’t be afraid to speak up.
I always thought that I would say my parents influenced me the most. However, after having kids I have to say that they have influenced me the most. They make me want to be a better person. They make me want to enjoy life. With each day my life is new again because of them.
I hope this helps you. This is what I would write for all of them.
