Common Application Writing-Short Answer:
Please briefly elaborate on one of your extracurricular activities or work experiences (1000 character maximum)

This is one of the most important essay for my college application. Thank you so much for taking time and helping me!

I have been playing tennis for over ten years. Through playing tennis I have gained many lifelong friends. Also, whenever I step onto a tennis court, I feel like I am strong enough to win. Competing in tennis has helped me to become more confident and outgoing. It was a stepping stone to being more social with others. After getting used to competing in tennis, I became more open minded and looked for ways to compete in other steps of life. Tennis gave me a newfound self-confidence to try new things and to compete. From playing and competing in tennis, I have learned that if you practice and do your best to prepare, you can win. (636 characters so far)
