what should I write about for my college application essay?

QUESTION
what should I write about for my college application essay?
The prompt is “Choose an issue of importance to you. The issue could be personal, school related, local, political, or international in scope.” A few ideas would really be helpful!

ANSWER
Getting ahead of the game? Good for you. I just started college a few weeks ago. It’s great. If it was my essay I would’ve written about my mom’s cancer being a issue for me. She died a few months ago so that wouldn’t be applicable now but if you have someone in your family you care about that is ill you could write about that and how it affects. You could write about finding a job, overcoming anxiety or something, your town/city planning to remove a park, presidential election, um and some other stuff. I’m trying to give you diverse options. Hope I helped!
