Hi, so I was wondering if I have been volunteering at a dog rescue for 4 years would it make a good essay for UC applications if I write about how it taught me how to a move on and how to cope with emotional stress and how it taught me how to overcome our emotions in order to take action on what needs to be done. This is because while volunteering I witnessed many dogs ranging from newborns to 15 years old come in to the rescue in horrible condition from very servere abuse. As well as a time where when I was volunteering, we got a call that a young dog with no tag was running in the grocery parking lot and few minutes before we got there, he had been hit by a car and died. These events impacted how today I am strong enough to surpass emotional trauma in order to provide effective help and address the problems that I face. Another topic for an essay I had was about research on zoo animals physiology I have been doing for my AP research class. Seeing how I’m applying as a zoology/bio major I was wondering if either of these would make good topics for a college essay?
