How does NYU feel about Additional Documents? ESSAY

I submitted my Common App to NYUAD. We are also allowed to send additional documents so I sent some certificates and a resume.

I wrote another essay that didn't make the cut. It discusses an incident in which I appeared in TV to be a "kid reporter" and how that frightened me initially. I submitted another essay instead because although this essay's content is more impressive, my writing style in the other was more interesting.

It would be a good addition since my career path is going towards journalism.

Do you think it would be a good idea to send that in too? Or will the NYU Abu Dhabi admission officers hate my guts for all the things they have to read in my application? Do they care more about the personality of the student rather than their accomplishments?
