I am decent at a certain sport and have various awards for that sport, but I would like to focus mainly on academics in college. I am passionate for wrestling, but also a certain academic area. Writing an essay would be easier and would make me sound more "human" (meaning, not robotic or exaggerated). I already have the essay mapped out in my head, but I want colleges to know that I am more than just a sport. Should I write about wrestling or about the academic interest? If I do write about that sport, how should I show my dual passions?
