UC prompt essay examples?

I'm trying to get a sense of what strong essays for the UC prompts look like. Can anyone share examples of successful essays they've come across or written themselves?

Hiya! While I don't feel comfortable sharing my essay, you'll be happy to hear that there are plenty of UC essays available on CollegeVine's website that you can take a look at here:

I referenced these when I was working on my UC essays and found them super helpful. Especially since they provide analysis after each essay, it really helped me understand what makes a good essay. I hope you find this as useful as I did!
