Hi @haniyaa,

I recently discovered CollegeVine's Essay Guide, which is really detailed and should be just what you're looking for. They've got tons of great articles on all different kinds of College Essays and you can probably find more guidance on the livestreams for questions relating to specific universities.

There are also other sources online that you can use like PrepScholar and CollegeAdvisor. I'll link some sites below.

In any case, the CollegeVine Essay Guide should show you how to start and give you a pretty good foundation.

Hope this helps!

I would start by looking at the essay question. Sometimes reading the questions will inspire your essay. Don't be afraid to write the same essay multiple times. Find someone to read your essay and edit it. Make sure you make it personal, don't write an underdog essay (you were really bad at basketball had never played before then became the star player etc.)
