Musings on reading your college applications…I always feel honored
that I have the opportunity to read the personal stories that students
share in their applications. I get glimpses of the beauty of humanity.
Stories of hope, joys, the tiny moments that make life real, the
life-changing experiences. Everyday I find myself laughing aloud or
tearing up over the words in these essays.
The art of story telling is a valuable one. We all have stories to
share, that help communicate who we are by how we react to an
experience, how we perceive it, and what we learn from it.
