Okay guys, I've been working my tail off trying to figure out what I should write about in my personal statement. I have tons of things I can write about but I'm not trying to come off as some sob story (unless it gets me into Harvard ) Anyway I have a list of possible topics.Work with The Homeless- For the past six years, I've dedicated my time and efforts (15 hrs a week) to outreach with homeless teens on drugs.During the process, I learned a lot about myself and made some interesting connections with people I wouldn't otherwise have interacted with.Heart Condition- Well Sophomore year my mother developed a hole in her heart because of some asthma medication she was taking (i know sucks, she's suing the company) Anyway she had two heart attacks and I had to take a semester off to take care of her (because some of the other idiots in my family suddenly had too much to do. My dad helped out a lot even though my parents are divorced) Anyway it was another time in my life where a lot of responsiblity was on my shoulders. While my dad was at work, I was responsible for my three younger siblings. So I felt like a temporary mom LOL. But by the grace of god my mom is going much better.My trip to africa- I spent 3 months in Cairo Egypt. It wasn't school related. I just did it on my own. I learned a lot about a different culture and met some relatives I had no idea excited. It was am amazing trip of self discovery..and made me appreciate living in American (in spite of our current president but that is another topic LOL.)So any ideas?
