The question is: How has your life and background shape you into an individual who will enrich Howard University.
Need brainstorming ideas...how to start this statement off...what to include and what not to include.
Well, let's see. How about discussing an event that changed your life? What about the impact your family has had on you? Or a particular sport or extracurricular activity that has help mold your character into the person you are today? What are the things that have happened to you that make you, you?
Best of luck!
Thank you Gloria for your response. I plan on posting my essay, here are my thoughts on how to answer the question. Discuss my weakness, strengths and how I can make a contribution to the school with an emphasis on family and one particular sport that I participate in.

That sounds like a fantastic start. You are very welcome! Keep up the good work.
I AM HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME, WITH MY CONCLUSION TO MY ESSAY. I NEED HELP?
Good afternoon :)
Just a short internet etiquette note; when you write in all caps like this, it's equal to shouting. So, unless you mean to yell at someone, try not to use all caps. :)
In regards to the conclusion, it shouldn't introduce any new information. It should tie to your introduction in theme or pattern, and restate the main topics of your essay. With that in mind, it sounds like yours should briefly discuss the individuals in your essay and how they helped you, why/how they influenced you to take on challenges in school, what is important to you in relation to your career, and how you are a good fit for this school.
Keep up your hard work; you're almost there!
I apologize for using all caps, I had no intent of yelling at you. Thank you for the etiquette note and the for your suggestion. I should have my essay complete this evening.
Thank you once again Gloria for your assistance
