I want to write about something extremely unique because I bet by the time college admission counselors read my essay, they've read every topic, it's vague and boring to them. Unfortunately, I've never had a job. I've done volunteer work for a nursing home, library and volunteer work in India. I've taken part in clubs in my high school but nothing to spark great excitement. What can I write about? How can I make my essay individualistic yet exciting and unique? Please help me out!
