In a 200-word paragraph, SHOW me a side of yourself that you think most people wouldn't know otherwise. Upload to Turnitin.com.
Points to keep in mind:
- Show, Don't (Just) Tell
- Rather than including a list, or describing the kind of thing that "usually" or "sometimes" happens, choose a specific event, and bring me along with you on that event, SHOWING through details that let me live the experience through your senses.
Rather than stating "Many people would be surprised to learn that I am the kind of person who does X," which TELLS me that people are surprised, actually try to surprise me.
