Whats something that is meaningful to you?

I am a senior that is applying to Stanford or early action and I have gotten all the essay topics except for this one. I was actually writing about astronomy but I feel that it is to cliche. Is there any way you all could help me out?

If you go on passionate detail or maybe go into an specific subgenre I think you will be fine, maybe use words which are able to keep the reviewers intrigued!

It seems that you are stuck on the essay prompt number 3. I don't think that your topic is anything too crazy. The university is more concerned about how you talk about astronomy. But if for some reason you want to talk about something beyond astronomy, then try picking a specific part of astronomy you want to do.
