Common App Essay: Very Good IMO (My AP Lit Teacher, Counselor, Tutor, Mom, Dad, and friends have all said it is really good) It is about my near fatal diagnosis with type one diabetes where my blood sugar was in the 800s where a lot of people go into comas, and how at first it was tough for me and how i often doubted myself, but with the support of family and the inspiration of my dad’s immigration to cuba and the cuban values he taught me, i never gave up. I turned it into an asset, volunteering, running, and participating in a lot of events to help the type one diabetes community.
Vandy EC Essay: Talked about my internship with Hillary, what I learned from it. Emphasized how that despite the divided country we have today, I can still love and respect people with different views (Talked about my family members who voted for the other side), however I would still argue and stand up for my beliefs till I die.
Letters of Rec:
One from my Physics Honors Teacher: I picked her because she is insanely nice person, and i have a good relationship with her. Although it was not my strongest class due to the fact physics relies a lot on sensory issues, which do not get along with my dysgraphia, I still ended up with a B+ in the class.
One from My AP Gov Teacher: She is a very talkative person who knows my interest in politics and knows about my ECs in that area.
One from my counselor who i also have a good relationship with.
