Would you please explain to me what the UC Personal Statement prompt 1 means?!
The prompt is describe the world you come from and how did that world shaped your dreams & aspirations( I know it isn't the exact words..). I am having a hard time describing my "world." I rewrote my personal statement and I am writing on how the struggles that my parents went through motivates me to go to college. I was planning to write about the obstacles that I faced which is learning English(Chinese was my first language), how I was abused in China, and some other obstacles. Do you think I can write an adequate essay by using these obstacles?? My world would be my family. I know there are a lot of people that writes about like death of a family member, how being a chinese immigrant affected you, parent's divorce, stuff like that. However, I don't think those are describing one's world. Those are just obstacles one faces in their lives. What does it mean by "world"? Is it more of a general world or like what specifically happens in the world? Sorry if none of this is making sense..I can't explain it from my thoughts.
