How do I round out my essay idea?
I have struggled with creating my college essay, I believe I have a good idea and outline but I'm unsure how to tie it in to say something about me. Due to some health reasons, I was out of school for a few months and took a full-time job in the meantime. A customer who all the other staff hated, I ended up getting to know and really liked them. I feel passionate about writing about this, but im unsure how this will end up saying anything "deep" or impressive.1 replies
