Overcoming Depression in a College Essay?
So I am 17 years old preparing to send in applications to my colleges. I have struggled with depression and self harm for most of my life. But I recovered in 8th grade due to the support of a friend. The thesis statement for this personal essay is, I believe one person truly can change anything. It is talking about my struggles with depression as well as my journey out of it. My parents are suggesting that I write about something different which is genuinely hurtful given that this is a part of me and something that made me into the man I am today. If I could get some feedback as to wether this is a good idea or not as well as possible ways to format an essay of this sort or even someone willing to proof read it I would greatly appreciate it.8 replies
