Read my essay?

It's the prompt about the significant experience. Currently my essay is 692 words and I really need to cut it down to at least 550-600. I feel like I used too many descriptions that were not really necessary to my point but it's hard to delete your work. Also, do you get what I'm trying to say about myself? Does it say enough? I have other essays I could use but I did like this idea of combining my environmental/recycling kick with creating community and bridging differences, although those points may be too subtle. Thanks in advance for your help!

I'll PM it over and edit yours/be extremely grateful.
