QUESTION
I don’t know how to write a college essay for UT help!!?
Write an essay in which you tell us about someone who has made an impact on your life and explain how and why this person is important to you.

Okay I was thinking of my mom. but do i also include things like accomplishments in the essay as well or do i just stick to talking about my mom?

help me please! i’m the first person in my whole generation of family to ever go to college in America.

ANSWER
Respond to the prompt. That means your essay should include, in some organized fashion, the following information:

Who is someone in your life who has impacted your life?
Why is she important to you?
How has she inspired you? (for instance, to argue for her impact on your life)

It should be about your mom and why she is important to you, but it should also include how she has influenced you and/or inspired you to be who you are. I wouldn’t mention your accomplishments, unless, for instance, your mom encouraged you to do something and the accomplishment is part of explaining how your mom has been important and influential.

Good luck!
