College application essays can be so awkward. Even if you're an excellent writer when it comes to historical or literary analysis, chances are you have never had to sit down and write about how amazing and unique you are -- and how you deserve a spot at this school more than the 40 people who won't get in if you do.
This awkwardness gets compounded when a "non-diverse" student has to write about their diversity or oppression for a supplemental essay.
