is this a good idea for an "other" essay?

<p>one of my hobbies (kind of embarrassing, but whatever haha) is genealogy. i traced my family back hundreds of years.
i wrote an essay about how genealogy has shaped my views of myself, of people in general and of the individual's place in the world. im a pretty good writer and my AP eng teacher told me she thought i could use it...but im still unsure.
do you think this is a good idea or just strange? let me know if you want to read it. ill send it to you. its not too boring, dont worry :p</p>

<p>That sounds pretty neat.</p>

<p>I'm actually interested in reading it.</p>

<p>i'll read it.</p>

<p>Go for it! Worst case scenario, it's not a good essay. And either way you'll be writing more than one. Good luck! :]</p>

<p>sounds cool and unique... I'd go for it. The goal of any personal statement is to have the adcom feel that they know who you are by the end of it, and an essay like that could definitely give adcoms a picture of you.</p>
