    Hey! Profile is looking good overall, but if I were to say one way or the other I would def not say you are one-dimensional but rather a bit all over the place (not badly though, you have some clear interests). My two pieces of advice would be to 1. depict more clearly what you are most passionate about through your essays (it doesn't have to be one of the fancier things, should just be what you really love) and 2. highlight your personality and what makes you unique through your essays. Good luck!.
