Are Any of These Good Essay Topics?

<p>I've had a very different life and very different life experiences than most 17 year olds.
Here are a couple of things I've been through that I could write about:
- My mom is a 3 time cancer survivor
- I've lost my brother and uncle
- I have 6 brothers and sisters; 5 of whom are adopted
- I've overcome both anorexia and depression
- I have a rare genetic condition that's greatly impacted my life
But, I don't know. I'm not sure it'd be a good idea to write about any of these things.</p>

<p>tricky. you want them to know what you’ve overcome, but not that you’re somehow not… normal</p>
