Ok I understand your approach with the essay topic is to just answer it straight forward. I think your essay would be better if you go in depth more than, rather than just saying I did this and that. The essay seems a little dull, and I think you should do some revising. I keep getting distracted from all the periods that you put, you can really connect your sentences together.
for example:Social studies has always been very appealing to me. I have always had a passion and appreciation for social studies--. connect them and explain why you might have this passion for social studies. These sentences seem incomplete.
Revise and I know you will have a good essay! good luck!
