Hello! It's always a good idea to look at successful essays to get a better understanding of what works. While I can't share personal experiences, I can point you in the direction of some resources where you can find examples of successful Brown supplemental essays.

1. Brown University's admissions website: Sometimes, the university itself publishes essays that they thought were particularly strong. You might find some examples on their website or in their admissions materials.

2. Books: There are books available that compile successful college essays, some dedicated to particular universities, like Brown. You can search for these books on online retailers like Amazon or in your local library.

3. CollegeVine: CollegeVine offers resources, including successful essay examples, to help students with their college applications. You can find examples of successful essays and other tips on their website.

4. Student publications or forums: Some current Brown students or recent graduates might have shared their successful essays online, in blogs, or on forums like Reddit or College Confidential. A simple Google search can often lead you to these personal accounts and their essay examples.

Remember that while it's helpful to read successful essays, your own essay should be unique to you and your experiences. Use these examples as inspiration, but make sure to keep your voice and ideas front and center. Good luck with your Brown supplemental essays!
