Got a new topic for my college essay. Drumroll…. B-d-d-d-d-d-d! I’m going to write about last summer when I decided I would take photographs of all the older people in our neighborhood. Then I framed the photos and gave them to the seniors as a gift. I know I’m not the greatest photographer in the world but every single person was so happy to get their picture when I was done. Learned a ton from the senior citizens, they were all so smart and nice and funny. Probably learned some other stuff, too, about… well, I’ll get into that when I start writing. Definitely a “significant experience” (perfect for Question One on the Common App.). Really excited now, this will be great!
