College Essay Help!
So I'm still stuck on college essay topics but I have one in mind I'm just not sure if it would be a good idea or how to go about writing it so it doesn't sound too cliche and jumbled. I did gymnastics for 9 years and quit before high school- since then I hadn't gone to the gym at all- I've been hired as a coach at my old gym though (which is my first job) and so maybe somehow writing something based on this? I'm not sure though because I didn't continue with gymnastics so idk how that would come off? I was thinking of writing it in some form like: going back to the gym and then seeing everything, describing its impact on my life (like maybe learning the importance of balance- idk if too cliche) and then transitioning to how I'm going to be teaching kids this stuff or like how I'm going to change their lives in ways that gymnastics changed mine. Sorry this is so long but I need advice; thanks!4 replies
