advice for honors essay?

i am applying to emerson college and i think i have a pretty good chance of getting in. i want to major in maybe media arts production with a focus in television writing/producing. i want to write for television, but that pays very little, certainly not enough to cover student loans for this $70,000/yr school. winning this $30,000/yr honors scholarship would be a lifesaver. for that reason this essay is very intimidating and i'm having an extremely hard time writing it. i want to write about the metaphor of "square peg in a round hole" and how it helps me feel validated in my struggles through public school due to my learning disability. any advice?
