UC essays

<p>Describe the world you come from — for example, your family, community or school — and tell us how your world has shaped your dreams and aspirations.</p>

<p>Tell us about a personal quality, talent, accomplishment, contribution or experience that is important to you. What about this quality or accomplishment makes you proud and how does it relate to the person you are?</p>

<p>Just having a difficult time on what to write about really...<br>
I'm not incredibly close enough to my family or community to know what to write about. And my high school is a new school that no one really talks proud of or anything...
I honestly live a boring, sheltered life and have not gone through very much... There are things I could write about... Like swimming for talents... But I don't wanna write another predictable, cliche sports essay if you know what I mean. The most adversity I've gone through was moving cross country ("experience")... </p>

<p>Can someone just spark some writing intellect into me???</p>

<p>Do you like yourself? When I felt stuck on essays, I thought about why I genuinely thought their college was for me. Why do you want to go to a UC school? Tell about how you grew to love the idea of California for college.
I think writing about your cross country move might be a great idea. Was it recent? Did you have to make new friends? Were people mean to you? How did you OVERCOME?
How did you become a more solid person because of a certain experience in your life?
Do you think certain things are right or wrong? What has shaped you to have the convictions that you do?
Do you have a crazy sense of humor? Are you an old soul? Why, why are you the way you are?</p>
