In the space provided below, please describe which of these activities (extracurricular and personal activities or work experience) has had the most meaning for you, and why.

Do they mean a 'creative'essay, or something technical, ya know, just saying why you like that activity?

I talked about my job at a movie theatre- e.i realizing that there a world of people outside my suburban, upper-class community. It was creative, but did talk about different duties/responsibilities at my job. (remember, it's only 250 words).

I wrote a pretty technical essay, just explaining what my responsibilities are in my youth group and why it's been so meaningful to me.
