Is my essay topic good?

I’m planning on applying to the University of Illinois and am struggling to think of a good essay topic. I plan on majoring in journalism so I was thinking about writing about how my love of books and movies as a kid led me to journalism, as I have a passion for storytelling. Could that be a good essay?

It could be... Are you excited to write it? Will it show how you developed as a result of your love of books? Has your love of books led you to where you are today?

Unrelated, but what genre do you enjoy writing? I like writing sci fi/fantasy (which are basically the same genre, but...)
