Hey guys, so I'm starting to work on my college applications and I'm kind of stuck on what to write about in my personal statement. I want it to be unique and something that will make me stand out from everyone else. Any advice or suggestions would be really appreciated!
Hey there! I understand the struggle of trying to come up with a unique and interesting topic for your personal statement. My child faced a similar challenge when they were applying to colleges. What worked for them was to reflect on their personal experiences and passions, and then identify a specific story or moment that really showcased their personality, values, and growth. It's important to remember that colleges are interested in getting to know you beyond your grades and test scores, so don't be afraid to let your personality shine through. It can also be helpful to brainstorm ideas with friends, family, or a teacher or counselor who knows you well. They might have some insights into what makes you unique and interesting. Good luck with your applications, and remember to be authentic and true to yourself in your personal statement!
