Tip: This is a creative essay, so take advantage of that when you’re writing. You can stretch it in various directions. It can be a way for you to show off your personality, interests, and creativity. It can also work as a way for you to showcase your personal and/or professional goals. Take some time to outline what you want to say and how best to say it. Make a list of places you’d love to go, events you’d love to see, or people you’d love to meet. Use that list as your foundation and try to visualize an essay for each item on the list. Which one best reveals your personality and/or interests? Which one allows you the most freedom to write? Which one can you draw enough content from to write an essay? The time and effort you put into outlining and brainstorming a topic like this one will save you some major agony when it comes time to actually writing it.
