What type of writing do you most like?
I love all types of creative writing, from scribbling vivid and descriptive accounts of my day in my journal to drafting a chapter of a short story. I also like to inject creativity into writing for my classes, job, and other tasks as well. For instance, I particularly enjoyed creating a narrative for my college essay and my personal statement for dental school.
Subject: College Admissions
What is the most difficult aspect of College Admissions?
From my experience with applying to college and dental school, I have learned that the most difficult aspect of the entire college admissions process is making sure you differentiate yourself from other applicants. Because many students focus on academics, I think it can be difficult to make your profile stand out with test scores and GPA alone. Of course, it is important to have solid test scores and a strong GPA, but it is also important to highlight your personality and interests well. Whether this includes participating in various volunteer experiences related to something you're passionate about or even writing a unique and engaging college essay or personal statement, it is crucial that you set yourself apart from other students.
Why is English important to learn?
Regardless of your field of study or interests, I believe a strong foundation in English is necessary for success in all spheres of life. English classes help students foster their analytical skills and improve their proficiency in writing. It is important to be able to effectively articulate your ideas, and completing tasks like dissecting a piece of literature or writing an expository essay affords individuals this ability to communicate clearly and meaningfully.
