    I wrote some on my family and how my grandfathers taught me the meaning of perseverance, education, and hard work. Then I talked about my unique pool of friends (about 50 that are completely different nationalities) and my experiences (I went to a bar mitzvah and then to a chinese birthday and then to a mexican birthday back to back to back). The I talk about how in elementary my chinese friend and I started a little math race to see who could finish a program first. Several other people became interested and as a result we had six 5th graders complete a 9th grade level program.

    I also mix in my passion for math, science, art. Then I switch from english to spanish and throw in the occassional japanese and german.

    just a quick thing-- is the rice supplement to common app available in online format? or do you have to print the PDF form and mail that one? Cause I've printed out the PDF and filled it out but haven't sent it yet cuz I don't know if that's correct procedure or not.

    edit-- nm i guess someone already answered that.
