Common app essay: I chose to submit my own prompt. I wrote about my thought process when I think of the idea of individuality and the cultural/environment. I answered the question: "To what extent does the environment shape the character/thoughts or the personality of an individual?"
Harvard essay: I also chose to submit my own prompt. I wrote about the role of momentary triviality in a world that is lacking the motivation for creative endeavor.
