Hello! It's a great idea to look for samples as inspiration when starting your college admission essays. One website I recommend is CollegeVine. They offer comprehensive guides with essay samples, as well as tips on how to approach the prompts for various colleges. Here's the link: https://www.collegevine.com/category/essays/essay-examples

Another option is to browse the websites of the universities you're applying to, as many of them have published successful essays from their past applicants. You can find essays on their admissions blog or even on their YouTube channels sometimes.

Lastly, don't forget to ask friends, family, or peers who have recently gone through the college application process if they're willing to share their essays with you. This can be a valuable source of inspiration as well! Good luck, and happy writing!
