conflicted about which common app essay to submit.
Over the summer I wrote two common app essays. I wrote one about my experience at Girls Who Code. and another one about my decision to transition from relaxed to natural hair. I feel like my first essay seemed to cliche and pretentious because summer program essays are pretty common. In the essay I talked about how I became more outgoing, and how me and a group of girls I didn't talk to worked together to code a website and present it to a crowd at graduation. However this experience was't really meaningful to me. My second essay is more meaningful to me but it is a pretty unusual topic, I talked about transitioning from relaxed to natural hair and what the journey taught me. Which essay should I send to colleges?5 replies
