It's a festival of gaiety but then there are few who make this festival, a festival of evil. They do this by infuriating the strangers by forcefully throwing colours on them; some use colours that are difficult to remove and unsafe for skin and health. Many take it as a day of drinking alcohol but we should not forget that Holi is a festival of triumph of good over evil. We must try to wash away all the evils in our hearts along with the colours and allow the colour of love to stay there forever and ever. This is the true spirit of Holi.

I find this advice very helpful! As a senior and applicant this year, I find it difficult to write a concise essay that shows the real ‘me.’ When I always start writing an essay, I sigh thinking about how I can portray myself, a complex eighteen-year-old girl in 500 words. Yet, this essay really helps me to write an essay that is not only concise, but also is easy and enjoyable to read and contains all the information.
Even though I believe that all the tips are helpful, I especially agree with the tip ‘Know Where to Start.’ I often struggled with this, but when I realized how to do this, I found this tip very helpful. I just wish I had read this advice sooner for my early application!
