Essay subject?

<p>On Essay A, where it asks for you to write about an influential person: I know parents have been overdone, but would it be that bad if you were to write about your mom/dad, as long as you were genuine and truly expressed how they have been influential in your life? Or should I pick another person?</p>

<p>You write about what has influenced/impacted you, regardless of how common the topic may be. The key is making the topic your own. Twist it in ways that others couldn't. =)</p>
