During my 2nd semester of sophomore year (high school) I made a terrible choice of eating a marijuana edible and passed out at school. As a result I received two days of out of school and two days of in school suspension, kicked out of the long distance track team for the season, and in NJRTOC I got demoted 2 ranks and got removed off the leadership team & replaced someone else as platoon commander for my class. With all that going on I was at my lowest and unmotivated. I was also failing majority of my classes and barely cared. Throughout the semester I managed to keep my head up and bring my grades up, also started being active with myself and involving myself with other hobbies and activities to do. I am currently a rising junior and studying SAT's and etc, I wanted a head start of what I should write about my college application essays.
Im debating on whether if I should write about my past drug use and how I over came that. It taught me how to become a better person and leader, not only did it change my life around it showed me how I should start caring about my future and what goals I should set for myself and so I can achieve them.
Please help me out on what I should do, I need more opinions!!
