Hey there! I totally understand that feeling of stress when it comes to writing college essays. In terms of examples, you can find a few successful Stanford essays on CollegeVine's blog: https://blog.collegevine.com/how-to-write-the-stanford-university-essays

Another great resource is YouTube - many students who've been accepted to Stanford have shared their essays in videos. When exploring these examples, keep in mind that there isn't a one-size-fits-all approach to college essays. The best essays are personal, passionate, and tell a unique story about the writer. After reading/watching these examples, you should be able to get an idea of how to craft your own essay that showcases your unique perspective and experiences.

Remember, these examples should only serve as inspiration - don't copy or imitate them! Good luck with the writing process, and I hope you find these resources helpful!
