Trojan2010 1 / - Dec 13, 2009 #1Any help and critique would be much appreciated! Essay is below. I think it is too wordy and such...In the space provided below, please elaborate on one of your activities (extracurricular, personal activities, or work experience) (150 words or fewer)."Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." As I entered high school, I was determined to get the best darn chocolates I could get. My solution and plan: to be involved in anything and everything. I enrolled in harder classes, signed up for clubs, and went to all the games with the band, but the activity that I have found most meaningful is my volunteer work throughout the community. Through Student Government, National Honor Society, National English Honor Society, and volunteering on my own time, my committees and I have raised over $1,500 for the American Cancer Society during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, put on a successful canned food drive for our local homeless shelter, and volunteered at fundraisers, preschools, and community festivals. After all of this, I feel like I have the best darn chocolates around.
