Similar to the previous example, perhaps this experience heightened your passion for history and created a newfound love for linguistics, as you began to notice both the subtle and drastic differences between languages.
Perhaps the overlap between history and linguistics is now a discipline you wish to pursue in the essay allows you to be a bit more casual, as you don’t necessarily have to sound overly academic.
The ideal length for your essay is about 500 words, any longer and your essay will be hard to read; if it’s too short, it will feel a little incomplete.
With all of the above being said, let’s analyze each of the following topics in more depth.
If you’re writing about travel by itself, make sure it involves a broader purpose than you simply becoming more worldly or culturally aware.
For example, traveling to Peru and tasting Peruvian chicken and contemplating its flavors can connect back to your passion for history and cooking.
For instance, if you choose to discuss Model United Nations, you can briefly describe your role on the team and the events that your team participates in.
If you were involved in research, you could describe the subject you studied and any conclusions you reached at the end of this experience.
You could discuss the history of Peruvian society and how the cooking methods are driven by Incan and Spanish elements.
Decoding this origin of flavors can further connect back to your love of problem solving.
