I have decided that I am going to start to write my personal statement pretty soon and I cant decide on what topic to write about. I sort of have two topics in mind and I would appreciate any type of advice or consensus on which one might be the better choice.
I Studied Abroad in Australia for 6 months and I wanted to write about my experiences. Living on my own halfway around the world and gaining a new sense of independence that has helped me to view life from a difference perspective and experience things outside of my comfort zone.
Somewhat cliched but the other topic i had in mind is explaining my experiences in growing up with a Holocaust family and how it has shaped my life, how i can learn from it, or what i can do to prevent it from reoccuring (pretty cliched).
Which sounds like the better topic? Thanks.
