Throughout the past couple weeks of "College Essay Boot Camp" I wrote multiple drafts before arriving at the essay below. In person I can talk for hours about myself and tell you everything you ever wondered about me. This is a completely different story when it comes to putting it all on paper. By no means have I ever been good at writing about myself, but I chose the prompt I did to challenge this weakness of mine. I am incredibly passionate about this topic and live to share my experiences and ambitions around it with others. I had a difficult time finding where to start this story and eventually decided the beginning would be best (obviously). Receiving feedback from my peers pushed me to show more than tell, to allow others to live through my experiences. After receiving more feedback I found that others wanted to know more about my success thus far and the potential which I posses in this industry. On my own I found that I needed to make the piece more personal to the reader in order to evoke something that other essays didn't. I aimed to sympathize as well as prove myself to the audience through my writing.
