UCs - Are they looking for a specific kind of "dreams and aspirations?"

A lot of the "how the world you live in has shaped your dreams and aspirations" essays seem to be about the writer's dream to attend college, major in ____, open a business, get a job, or just be successful. Is that basically what the UCs want?
Or could it be some random thing you want to do when you're older or just whatever the heck you want?
