CheasleySwim team is a part of my identity, I've done it for 10 years now. I went to my cousin's swim meet one day over the summer and fell in love with the competition. I wanted to be like my cousin. I wanted to move through the water and work hard just like her. I found out that I couldn't be just like her because I am my own person. I began training everyday and working with my coaches. I found my own strenghts and weaknesses and my own ways to perform. I started striving and used my cousin as motivation. I pushed myself to be the best everday. I would even help the younger kids on the team with things they struggled with. I loved the competition but also how the water was my way to escape from whatever was bothering me. I also had a team that supported me with everything. I had another family.

30
CarringtonI think that there are a lot of ways to go with the prompt. It's all about you and you can be very creative with it. I chose this prompt for my essay and I found it to be almost overwhelmed with the number of ways I could go with it. It's very open-ended so that can be good or bad.
31
Myric I shared the story where I talked about a time when I had to overcome a failureSomething that resonated with me from the article was that, coming from low back grounds does not hold you back from accomplishing what you want to do. When talking to college represenatives, let them know the struggles you have encounterd with
32
EannaThis prompt makes me think about how my brother going missing affected and how it is part of my backround or how it shaped me. This is actually the prompt I chose for my common app essay.

35
DestineeBasketball is something that I explained in my essay and it has inspired many things and it helped me overcome a lot of things.
36
Daud M.Everyone has something not just some students. For me my identity is formed and shaped by the friends and people I surround myself with. Those people are mostly gamers they are my best friends and because of it I'm more of an indoor person I'm also a introvert and lack public speaking and speech skills because of gaming.
37
YahyaSoccer, and how it's shaped my life
38

39
BarunI talked about life in Nepal and how soccer helped shape my life what I understood from the article was that, when talking to college representatives tell them about the struggle you went through. Espeically, if you have poor background because it reflects on who you are and how you became the person you are right now by explaining how you went through those struggle.
40
AngieI have an interest in everything and think that it is important to have back ground knowledge in a lot of different feilds in order to be succesful becuse I do not want to just know in dept only things pertaining to my major. I also have a talent with kids and I am very nutering and believe that my college should know that because I found the personalilty of the student is a major key in college.
41
Kiana S.I think about my grandmother and how her condition effected me and the people around me. She's part of my upbringing.

EphraimWhen I read this prompt I feel that they want the most important parts of my life that made a huge impact and how I responded to those impacts.
46
NahidaI think this prompt gives people the oppprtunity to express and tell colleges about ourselves in a deeper level.I think it really impacts students to hear the fact that they were only accepted for their race and not because of their qualifications.
47
OnajaI think this prompt gives people to talk about how they are different than everyone else around them. Also it could aslso describe on how you are diverse
48
QuanaThis prompt is asking how different talents/ traits synobolizes our life.Colleges ask what what race you are, diversity is important to most colleges.

QuintusI think of my own person experiences. I think of when I started my own computer repair business and how important this was to me.The colleges seem to only use diversity to their advantage.The admissions and the students want diversity for the wrong reasons. Their goal is to better the school, but not to help fix any diversity issues.
52
SadariusShows how everyone has different talents and how everyone is different from each other. The collegs respect diversity but the students dont seem to as much.
53
XavierI think that this prompt allows others to share what tallents, interests, and ideas they have.Colleges care about diversity for the right reasons. That was very surprising to me.
54
AlexisI think prompt gives people an opportunity to express who they are as person in a way that makes them comfortable and for them to talk about their talents.
55
LaheriI think this prompt want's to get a better understanding of the student and who they are as a person. It gives you a chance to fully show you, and what you love to do.I feel like the topic of having to force diversity sticks with me. I feel like it's something that we shouldnt have to do, and what should come naturally.

57
JulyWhen I read this I think about experiences that students go through and have effected them greatly. It should be very personal because it gives the college to read about you. Students should not use their hardship as a excuse to get into what college they want. Colleges want diversity so students are interested in it.
58
KhalilSports, but more in particular running in general for me is a big part of my life. I don't think I could ever stop running. It's what gets my brain to reset and clear out when I'm not feeling well and it helps me with anything else that I need help with.Some colleges care about diversity more than others, but not all for the right reasons. Some just want the face and number of their colleges to look a certain way.
