ESSAY QUESTION 2
Tell us something about yourself that we would not find on your resumé. (Not to exceed 500 words)


I have some queries regarding this essay -
I have 3 things to write

1. My personal upbringing, hardships I had to face while I grew and how thy influenced my personal character n how this will help when I am at school

2. To let them know that I am a painter - Here, I can describe my passion for it

3. To let the school know my Yoga experience

I am confused, which one to write n what not to write. I have a liking for the first one. Is it ok and answers the question or are they expecting some true passion. I am applying for a B school MBA program

Please suggest,
Thank you in advance

Hello!

If you have a liking for the first one, why don't you write about it and try to weave painting and Yoga into it? You can say how painting and Yoga helped you overcome your hardships, how they drive you and inspire you, letting you look at problems from different angles etc.

If these things are a huge part of your life, I'd include them all. 500 words aren't that few. You should try to tell as much as possible about yourself, so if I were you I wouldn't limit myself to just one thing. Especially if you're thinking about throwing out things you're passionate about =) When people write about things they care about it always turns out more vivid.

Good luck!

I have tried that....but somehow I have not been able to weave them together. I dont want to post it here, because the essay is a bit personal. Is there any way I can send them to you. Please let me know...
