Prompt 1: Some students have a background, identity, interest, or talent that is so meaningful they believe their application would be incomplete without it. If this sounds like you, then please share your story.
As I woke up from my long rest, I headed to the kitchen well prepared. I have been longing to make macarons and I finally decided to try it out. Yesterday, while browsing the internet, I realized that making macarons is very hard. I have seen many who succeeded but also many who failed. But, undaunted, I decided to give it a shot. I assembled all the things I needed from the kitchen utensils to the raw ingredients.
Starting with the sifting of the almond flour and sugar powder, I felt that the whole process would be tedious. A lot of patience is required while doing this. As I continue on creating this complex treat, I begin to feel like it is similar to myself. Complex, needing care, and even needing patience. Continuing on, I separated the egg whites from the whole eggs. A process that requires precision because this procedure can decide whether or not the whole thing has to be restarted. I carefully detached the egg whites from the whole egg. During this time, I began to think of myself: a boy struggling hard to be set apart from others, constantly attempting to be the one who stands out the most. Although knowing that it does need a lot of work, I continue to pursue that purpose.
Completing the separation, I began to whisk it after putting sugar in it. Combining and blending just as I do with my culture. Through the vigorous process, it is halfway done. Next, I focus on incorporating the egg white mixture along with the dry ingredients. This is the most critical process of the whole creation. In order to successfully make the macaron, I put every nerve into perfecting this process. I fold the batter until it resembles the consistency of molten lava. It can be seen as a deciding factor of success or failure. This process is parallel to the decisions I make in my life. Whether or not I choose the right one, it would lead me to an outcome: good or bad.
Finally, a time to find out if all the work I have done paid off. Piping the batter into a baking tray, I carefully make the macaron shells identical. Precision is required in order to create the macarons that are highly praised among others. In the oven, I watch over it to see how it goes. I have put all of my effort to make a flat liquid mixture into a plump, solid object. Out of the oven comes out the product of all my hard work: a macaron shell.
I know that this essay is really incomplete and that it does not relate to the prompt as well. Can I have some tips for writing this type of essay? Thanks!
