For my activity essay, I have two possible topics, both at which I excel.
One of my choices is chess: I have several national tournament titles, I am rated in the top 100 for my age group in the country, it has also really changed me as a person, defining who I am and making me into a leader.
My other choice is tae kwon do: I have a tri-state title, I have a first dan, it disciplined me and made me more confident, it molded me into a leader.
Now I need some comments. I am thinking of using chess for my activity essay and tae kwon do for my main essay because I used to be made fun of and tae kwon do helped me deal with that. I also have many more awards in chess and figured that would give me more of a hook there, whereas I could show how tae kwon do shaped my life, making me into the bold pereson I am today. What do you think?

I dont know about others, but I would gowith the chess. It seems unconvential that that activity made you a leader as opposed to the tae kwon do. Just my opinion.

so you are saying that I should go with chess for the main essay about overcoming a difficulty and tae kwon do for the pleasure of it? I like this, now that I think about it, because I can take a nice angle for the pleasure of TKD and use chess to emphasize the difficult times. Thanks!
